So i just got finished watching high noon,
and thought about all the cowboy tunes by Mr. Weir and Mr. Barlow that we all listen to and discuss.
But how about your actual favorite western flicks.
I''m personally a Josey Wales man myself
"Dyin' ain't much of a livin' boy".

Thought it might be a good topic?

The Outlaw Josey Wales

The Unforgiven

Pale Rider

I love when spits on that dog's face....Shit makes me laugh everytime I see it. I like the later Clint movies....Pale Rider, Unforgiven. The guy that used to be killer but changed his ways. A perfect role for him........

better than the actual movie.

and anything with Walter Brennan or Strother Martin was bound to be a good one and if John Ford happened to direct it also

was my Darling Clementine mentioned?

I know there is some more recent moving I am forgetting, surprised I haven't seen it yet in someone else's lists...
Looks like, overall, Clint's getting much respect here (and Italian directors!).

Don't by-pass the old school folks. Jimmy Stewart was a bad ass in some of his early Westerns. And of course the Duke in the John Ford classics. I also have much love for Glenn Ford and Gary Cooper. Hell I love this stuff as much as the Dead! My favorites change all the time!

I recently watched all of Lonesome Dove and loved it. Robert Duvall turns in a virtuoso performance.

Duvall rocks... aka Tom Higgins (Godfather Trilogy) and Col Santini (The Great Santini). Excellent actor, and yes, he did a great job in Lonesome Dove.

Paint Your Wagon.

Most of it was filmed right here in the mountains outside of town, about the same time Jerry and the boys were filming Playboy After Dark. Must have been cool to wear the ponchos at that time...

Yes, Lt Col... but, merely a cameo (though strong), not enough to over power his performance in The Great Santini

I'm glad you mentioned Young Guns too.... wasn't sure if I'd have to defend my liking this movie. One of Emilio Estevez's best roles, in my opinion...... the other being Keith "Two-Bit" Mathews.

how about Sam Raimi's The Quick and the Dead?
good movie...... great cast

Tuner Movie Classics does it again today with a quadruple-feature today!

The Man From Laramie......A Jimmy Stewart classic

Colorado Territory....... With one of the all time bad ass cowboy actors, Joel Mcrea and an unbelievably hot Virgina Mayo ( seriously she looks so damn good in this movie it's hard to concentrate on anything BUT her!)

A Fistful of Dollars......an exact remake of an old Japanese Samuri movie with Clint as the residnt badass!

Finally, The Shootist.....John Wayne's last film filmed while he was pretty much dying.

Damn shame it's such a beautiful day here but these are 4 classics here. I would have to say if you had to do only one Colorado Territory is the one to watch. Did I say Virginia Mayo is hot in this one?????

Turner seems to be doing this every saturday or so. A good way to catch up on some Western Classics!

Never seen it. Perfect day to watch it as I have about a two hour paper to write.
Then it's on to the Masters! (Golf Westerns never really took off, wonder why?) Rolling Eyes

Hand me that 5 iron pilgrim.

About Mayo ....According to widely published reports from the late 1940s, the Sultan of Morocco declared her beauty to be proof of the existence of God.

She really holds up well against some of the beauties of today' s cinema. I love her in Colorado Territory. The first scene she makes an appearence melts me.

Don't think she was in that one with Peck though.

So I watched The Searchers for like the 400th time again last night and still think this is in the top 3 Westerns of all time. Every time I watch it I get something a little more out of it.

For example, I just noticed how the movie begins and ends. The begining starts with a view from inside a house and the door opens letting us look into the wasteland that John Wayne comes riding out of and into the picture. The end is again a view from the inside looking out as John Wayne looks on as the different players come in and out view and the story comes to a close. The Duke looks on, turns his back and swaggers away as only HE could do. The final scene in that movie ALWAYS hits me hard no matter how many times I've seen it.

A very dark film that portrayed John Wayne in a totally different light. He really acted his ass off in this one and you can feel his hatred come though in the film.

I also noticed that the stunt double for Natalie Wood pulled off a pretty damn good stunt in the end there.

McCabe and Mrs Miller turned the tables on the genre in a fairly definitive way. It's probably a lot closer to reality than most of the movies listed.

I loved Deadwood, if we want to expand into multi-season shows.

WOW Shocked Just watched Sergeant Rutledge on Turner Classic Movies tonight for the first time and it was freakin GREAT!!!!

John Ford mixed racial tension, western action, and a courtroom drama all in a very cool progression from The Searchers ( which is on next by the way Very Happy ) to this surprisingly awesome movie!! Catch it if you can folks.

I was watching Inglorious Basterds again last night an was struck how the opening scene in the Farmhouse had many elements from The Searchers in it. Don't know if it was on purpose but knowing that Tarrentino pays major homage to so many different movie and filmakers it would not surprise me.

The opening scene where the Nazi's come rolling over the hills is used with a far shot..one of the main characters comes into view. John Wayne enters The Searchers in the same fashion.

The use of the doorway is straight out of the Searchers( especially the long shot of Shoshana running away from the house( Took me back to Natilie Wood running away from Ethan at the end of the Searchers.

The hidding of the Jewish family beneath the floorboards and the look of fear in thier eyes. ( From the Searchers there is that whole scene at...you guesed it a Farmhouse and the Indians are getting ready to attack) Same use of tension and use of fear in the characters eyes.

Anyway was wondering if anyone knows if Tarrentino was using some John Ford type techniques or if it was just coincidence?

Easily my favorite too. Great cinematography. Great acting. Sad, but great story.

These are a few soundtracks from Sergio Leone's Spaghetti westerns composed by EnnioMorricone.

A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, and Once Upon a Time In The West. The links are in the post.

It's fun to listen to these on your headphones and visualize what is happening. I've seen TGTBaTU hundreds of times so the visulas are pretty sharp. The other ones take a little more work.

This remake of True Grit by the Coen bros. looks great! I am really hoping that they pull this off. The orignal was a little too much comic relief and it had some really corny moments. This should be one of those rare remakes that is better than the original!

It looks great, Jeff Bridges seems way better for the part than John Wayne. And anything the Coen bros touch is going to be golden.

Fargo got two Oscars. One for Best Actress and one for Screenplay. They make great flicks!

Raising Arizona
The Dude's The Big Lebowski
O Brother , Where art Thou?
No Country For Old Men

There were a couple of flops in there but their great work outweighs their bad work by tons!

The only Cohen Bros film I've been dissapointed with was The Man Who Wasn't There with Billy Bob Thornton, but that was a long time ago and may require some reassement. Otherwise, they're solid. Even overlooked ones like The Hudsucker Proxy, Intolerable Cruelty, and Burn After Reading were all gems, imho.

No Country For Old Men

There were a couple of flops in there but their great work outweighs their bad work by tons!


The last movie was a flop (with Brad Pitt in it - forget what it was called. It had some funny moments but overall kinda lame) Don't forget Millers Crossing!!!
That is a great movie. And yes, Koch, Fargo def was not a "flop"!
Big Lebowski was actually a "flop" based on its box office and tepid reviews.
Go figure... Confused
Cohen's doing True Grit? That should be cool.

So how come no one has mentioned "Brokeback Mountain"? Laughing

Thanks a lot Dude. Now I can't get the image of John Wayne saying "I can't quit you" out of my skull!
