YOU GONNA PULL THOSE PISTOLS OR WHISTLE DIXIE?

CbEagle 06-08-2017 07:44 AM

WTF Trent, that is one of the best all time Western movies. He is right the clicker always stops on Josey

slag 06-08-2017 09:31 AM

I stopped on that myself last night ... right about the time Lone Watie says:

They call us civilized because we're easy to sneak up on.

CbEagle 06-08-2017 09:59 AM

"White men have been sneaking up on us for years"

TRENT 06-08-2017 10:19 AM

why are you Asking WTF?
 
I love all the Eastwood Westerns,,,Never said I didn't like it,,Just said it was a dark story

Raptor 06-08-2017 10:24 AM

Yep, the other one that gets me....
 
....the final 30 minutes of Unforgiven....that final stand down between Clint and Hackman is fan-fuckingtastic.....always a clicker sticker for me.

YES. "Are you William Bonnie, killer of women and children?" "I've killed women and children. Killed just about everything that walks at one time or another. And now I'm here to kill you, Little Bill."

Probably a top 5 movie for me.

The NY Times one-line description of that movie in their TV section is one of the best abbreviated descriptions I've ever read about a film on TV:

"Unforgiven (Western) ... No good guys."

McCarthy12 06-08-2017 11:38 AM

Ha! That is pretty accurate. The most innocent characters are probably the prostitutes.

Unforgiven is the hands-down greatest modern western, followed closely by Tombstone. And given that they came within less than a year of each other after practically no high-profile westerns through the 80s, it's reasonable to assume Unforgiven's success paved the way for Tombstone. Prior to that, it was a dormant genre.

My all-time favorite westerns are Once Upon a Time in West, Shane, and The Good, the Bad & the Ugly. I haven't seen Josey Wales in years, I'm going to watch it again this weekend.

RSE 06-08-2017 01:36 PM

Shane is my favorite movie period.

Rio Bravo is also a great western. Dean Martin's finest acting performance.

DEAN MARTIN EVER SO SLIGHTLY BETTER THEN ROBERT MITCHUM, STUMPY (WALTER BRENNAN) FAR EXCEEDED (ART HUNNICUT) BULL..

HOWEVER. JAMES CAAN WAY, WAY BETTER THEN RICKY NELSON.

I need to watch more old westerns. There aren't a ton of really good, more recent westerns.

I really liked True Grit with Jeff Bridges that came out maybe 6 or 7 years ago. Thought that was pretty good.

slag 06-08-2017 04:48 PM

All those mentioned by you and Duck are on my top Westerns list ... but I would also include The Searchers and High Plains Drifter ... and, although it's a lame love story, the shootout at the end of Open Range is fucking outstanding.

Appaloosa is also pretty damn good also.

Another personal observation: Although Tombstone beats Wyatt Earp for the same basic subject matter, and I prefer the Val Kilmer Doc Holliday, Dennis Quaid's Holliday in Wyatt Earp is a pisser.

EDITED TO ADD: Don't know if it qualifies as a western, but Last of the Mohicans is also fucking great.

Not sure if Mohicans qualifies either, but it's awesome.

And even though it effectively killed the genre for almost 15 years, Heaven's Gate is another great western.

Red River has to be mentioned

3:10 to Yuma, the one with Glenn Ford.

But my all time favorite is probably The Man Who Killed Liberty Valance.

Also two excellent movies. 3:10 to Yuma with the great Van Heflin.

Loki 06-08-2017 11:41 PM

I don't know about that
 
Cowboys vs Aliens was pretty bad ass
