Fistful of dollars, only because it's almost an exact westernized remake of Kurosawa's Yojimbo

I prefer the remake to the original. I think that is the only time I can/will say that.

Definitely not the best, but has anyone seen The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean?

My fave would probably be McLintock, because John Wayne is awesome in it. Magnificent Seven gets a nod too because while it is a remake, it is incredible, great cast and the music is the best. The Searchers is great. I love The Wild Bunch. Once Upon A Time...is classic and Clint is great in all the movies he did. Threads like this are hard because I feel like there are a lot of great westerns and it sucks to name a few.

Been watching a bunch of Westerns lately so dragged up this thread looking for recommendations. My top 3 favourites would be Tombstone, Once upon a Time in the West and The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. Is Dances With Wolves considered a Western? Because that fucking rules too.

I need to watch more westerns, but probably my favorite I've seen so far is Bring Me The Head of Alfredo Garcia, if you consider it a western.

The Missouri Breaks is on right now. '70s Western with Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson and Harry Dean Stanton. Definitely in my top 5 all-time fave Westerns along with Nevada Smith with Steve McQueen and the original Django.

Haven't heard of that one, sounds like something I would dig. Nevada Smith is great, haven't seen it in forever though.

Whether or not you consider it a western, that is a great movie.

Hell yeah. I've been trying to convince people No Country is a western for years.

Lots of classics have already been mentioned. Some more recent favorites: Open Range, Bone Tomahawk, In a Valley of Violence.

Edit: And I know it's probably not considered a "true western" but El Topo is fucking awesome.

arguably some of the best westerns of all time were directed by a Portland native, John Ford. there's a statue of him at pleasant and fore st. The Searchers, Stagecoach and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are all essential viewing.


BMTHOAG is absolutely a western though. and it's fantastic


The Wild Bunch is easily my favorite western of all time.

Been watching tons of Westerns lately. Finally watched The Searchers, such an amazing film.

some faves:

The Good The Bad The Ugly
For A Few Dollars More
Django (1966)

Nevada Smith - such an epic movie. Steve McQueene sets out to kill the 3 men who killed his family. The killing of the second man, when Steve has to get himself into prison only to escape with the killer to execute him is a movie unto itself.

Death Rides A Horse
The Searchers
Hang 'em High
Missouri Breaks
Once Upon A Time in The West
The Wild Bunch
Sabata
Ace High
Fistful of Dollars

I never hear anyone talk about Open Range but it's been one of my favorites since it came out. Does the slow build really well and the shootout itself is brutal.

THE MERCENARY is my favorite.

THE SEARCHERS is the best, followed closely, so very closely, by SHANE.

Bone Tomahawk is vicious. Great slow burner.

Tombstone is also up there. Superb performance from Val Kilmer, and Bill Paxton is the man as usual.

I'd say the 2 best Westerns to watch for someone who wants to check out the genre would be The Searchers and The Good The Bad The Ugly. Arguably the best of Hollywood and the best of Spaghetti.
