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.

Default 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."

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.

Shane is my favorite movie period.

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

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.

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.

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.
