What's Your Favorite Western?

Recommended Posts

Carolyn Marie

I don't think this topic has come up before. Yes, I do and always have loved western movies. There is just something about them that stirs my imagination and longing for adventure and wide open spaces. The true American adventure story.

My top three, in no particular order, are:

Lonesome Dove (yes, it was a television miniseries, but so what? It's probably one of the greatest westerns ever made)

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance

The Searchers

I could easily name another half dozen, but lets see what you all come up with. Yeeee haaaa!

Did you say Lee Marvin?

Carolyn Girl, Lacey's time machine is taking her back to ... 1967!!!

LEE MARVIN ...Ernest Bornine ... Charles Bronson ... John Cassavetes ... Jim Brown !!!

Lee was The Main Mammajamma of that badbutted crew, as you will recall, oh, aging one. :thumbsup:

Jim Friggin' Brown !!!

Lacey remembers watchin him play football watching games on TV with the old man ... back in the early 1960s. One time, four huge tackles, FOUR OF 'EM, pounced on Jim Brown to tackle him. This were BIG dudes, over 270 pounds each. Jim Friggin' Brown kept truckin' with four huge dudes on his back and hanging on to him! We say his feet haulin' butt carrying these guys down the field! He ran many years carrying these guys until they finally brougth him down. In his day, Jim Brown was the baddest of the bad on the gridiron.

Okay, golden girls, who remembers Ray Nitschke and penis Butkus?!?

Oh, my! I'm SOOO off topic, aren't I? Sooorrreeeee !!!

Carolyn! See what ya made me do? Flashback City, babes! Dang, I LOVE it!

Ok, I am a Eastwood fan, make no mistake and I love Charles Bronson's westerns also, but my favorite western is 'Tombstone'. Can't help it. Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holiday was just too dang cool.

For me there are lots of memories af hanging out in the hills behind the house with my friends, big bonfire going, a swiped bottle of real Tombstone Whiskey, playing poker with a shot in the pot and the losers had to say a quote from a western movie while the winner drank up.

One of the 'baddist' of the bad guys was Jack Palance in Shane - barely spoke as Wilson, the hired gun - Alan Ladd played Shane.

Remade as Pale Rider with a few changes but Eastwood was the reformed gunslinger and the bad guy was John Russel.

I also love Silverado.

Love ya,

I love Westerns, though I feel like I can't say that somehow, because most of the Westerns I've seen and love are the Italian "Spaghetti Westerns" or the ever-depressing existential/revisionist Westerns. The ones I have in my collection are: The Dollar Trilogy (A Fistful of Dollars, etc.), The Great Silence, The Proposition, The Hired Hand, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Unforgiven, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales, Joe Kidd, Once Upon a Time in the West, and (if it counts) Blazing Saddles.

Guess I am the oddball here. As for some reason I just can not stand westerns at all. Not sure why though.

I am a big fan of westerns and it would be difficult to narrow this vast genre down to three. What comes to mind is:

The Shootist

Silverado

Open Range

I am an Eastwood fan any of his spag westerns rate high. John Wayne is the epitomy of the western actor. But lets not forget Yul Brynner:

The Magnificent Seven

I would be very hard pressed to pick a favorite.

The Magnificent Seven would be right up there at the top.

Any western with the Duke.

There were just so many classic westerns.

The Magnificent Seven is the U.S. version of The Seven Samuri and a great memory. On my birthday my mom gave me money to take my friends to a Disney movie but we saw the magnificent seven instead, except for one guy whowent home because he told his mom it was a Disney.

Aslo the classics The Oxbow Incident Fonda and Stewart, and Cooper in the Hangin' Tree.

More modern Once Upon a Time in the West.

Ok so I'm an old girl who grew up on westerns.

For me, it's Unforgiven. I cried at the end of that. I was riding my motorcycle home from the theatre and had to pull over I was crying so hard.

I also love Once Upon A Time In The West and Silverado and just about any of Sergio Leone's westerns with Clint.

And, for laughs, Blazing Saddles and Ruster's Rhapsody.

I've got the end title music on a CD, and it nearly brings me to tears. I love that music, which I believe Eastwood composed.

      Wow Charlize, that's something. 3 cords should be a good supply for winter. We only go through about a cord per winter here, depends.    Have a great day   C -

      Debra,  Did they catch the thief?  Amazing that they tried to sell them in a legitimate market.   Samantha,  Admitting to ourselves who we are and then accepting that is a long term process.  I wouldn't worry too much about being hairless.  Many men are.   If it becomes too difficult then showering at home may be the only alternative.   I'm almost done cutting the firewood for the house.  I've got 3 cords cut, split and covered on pallets ready to move near the front door.  We unfortunately have hundreds of dead ash trees on the farm.  The emerald ash borer is killing them all.  I feel like crying as i take them down but at least they make great firewood.  I've  also set some pieces aside for hafting axes and hammers.  In time wooden baseball bats will disappear. Another ecological disaster.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Good morning everyone. Woke up yesterday morning and confidently announced to myself, "I'm a trans woman". Made feel feel incredibly content and happy. Went about my day and left a voice mail for a endocrinologist, "I'm a trans woman'. And it felt so good to say it aloud and to someone else, even if it was an answering machine. Lost a bit of this bravado when back with my family last night, butbtjis morning, I'm feeling good again. This site really has and continues to help me. Sorry rambling on. On a side note, I assume most of us here dont change and shower at the gym? Im reluctant to go to the mens locker room with a shaved body. Any thoughts?

      Howdy, I'm a fellow "J-nerd" but I have to admit, I haven't read the mangaka you mentioned. I prefer action genre. My current obsession is Boku no Hero, which I follow the manga and anime for. Looove One Punch man. Still watch classics like DBZ, Yu Yu Hakusho, Rurouni Kenshin. Liked Naruto before the Great Ninja War arc--by then I was "character fatigued"... I also like some of CLAMP's work. Also LOVE Naoki Urasawa's masterpiece Monster.   My first ever manga was Fushigi Yuugi by Yu Watase. That began it all for me. She is a very talented artist too. My only thing with her is that all her stories follow the same love triangle pattern and I don't enjoy how predictable that is. But the Fushigi Yuugi will always have a special place with me as my first.

      This is a seinen manga that has both a FtM main character and FtM side character. It depicts gender dysphoria at the onset of puberty.    For those of you who don't know, manga is Japanese comic books or graphic novels that are read from right to left. Seinen manga is catergorized as "men's manga" because it deals with more adult issues. There is also shonen (boy's manga), shoujo (girls manga), and josei (women's manga).    Hourou Musuko is available to read online at mangareader.net, and is also available in hardback format on Amazon.

      A bit of a twister for me Vicky, but I get the gist. Over here that would be less of an issue, although has occurred in some of the more religious schools. I think my thoughts attune more directly with most of the population here in attempting avoiding confrontation as being no real issue rather than even the presenting of pronouns, as Carolyn examples, which does actually raise the issue in the minds of some.   On a wider front, there is becoming very much increasing resentment here of minority groups getting dis-proportionate representation. That is working against, in this example, trans people, turning what may only be a tricky situation into a confrontation in the minds of people who would otherwise live and let live. In this the press, both good and bad, are probably hindering as much as helping.   Tracy

      I think your instincts are serving you well, hon.  They are telling you that danger lies ahead if you come out when you're not ready.  I have always counseled young people here, as have Vicky and others, that they should not come out to parents if there is even a 50/50 chance it won't go well.  There are too many things that can go wrong, and only one thing that can go right, and to me, that's too big a risk.  So my advice has been to not come out to parents unless there is absolutely no other choice, that waiting until you can at least make legal decisions for yourself is too much to bear.   Keep learning about this stuff; talk to people you trust, talk to us, read up on it, gather information that you can someday give to your parents to help them understand you.  You'll survive the next couple of years, hon.  We want to keep you safe, and happy.   HUGS   Carolyn Marie

      If she were to ask that face on, my suggestion is to say that you are trying to discover exactly who you are, and that it does take some time.  Perhaps that could be an opening for you to get some counseling about your Gender Dysphoria with the help of your mom.  In most U.S. states, since you are an adolescent, doctors and therapists for your age group cannot discuss gender issues or other specified issues with your parents without your permission, unless you are actively suicidal or thinking about harming another person.  The therapist can become your helper to communicate with your mother and maybe father when the time comes that you are ready.  You can politely  tell her that some comments are not helpful, such as "how girly your figure is" or things like that.  Thank her for being your parent, but tell her you on a a journey of discovery in your mind and will communicate with her as you progress.  I have 3 adult children and had to butt out of their lives for some of their goals, which were hard for me, even though they are all three cis/het.

      I already said what's been happening in my life on my last topic, but basically I've been more and more bothered about coming out. Now that school started this week (I'm a high school sophomore), I have to live as a girl again, and lately a few people I know (online and irl) have been transitioning and it kinda hurts to see people able to transition safely while I feel like I can't even tell anyone I'm trans. I know my friends would be mostly fine depending on who I tell, but lately as I've had to be seen as female wherever I go I just want to live authentically as a male so badly. As of now, the only place I can safely be male is online, and though my school has been pretty welcoming to LGBT students (at school we had to tell everyone word by word our name and pronouns, which sucked for me since if I told them to call me by male pronouns my parents would find out somehow so I had to tell everyone I went by she and her, so it was a lose-lose for me. it hurt), my parents have been holding me back from being male in the real world for a while. I don't know much about my dad's political beliefs, since he doesn't talk to me ever about topics related to being gay/trans/etc, but my mom has been really nosy about it to me lately. She'll see me wearing tomboyish clothing and start talking to me and asking if I'm self-conscious about my chest, if I'm lesbian, and then goes on a rant about how nature gifted me with such a beautiful figure and god, I'm so tired of it. I'm so fed up with having to deal with everyone calling me she, my mom telling me how lucky I am to be gifted with such a pretty body, and constantly reminding me I'm a woman to her. I get that it's hard for a parent to accept their child is trans and want them to live a good life without complications. She's talked to me multiple times before about gay people, whom she's fine with but would prefer I wasn't, and she's talked to me once about non-binary people, which she thinks is dumb. She hasn't said anything about transgender people, as in FtM, Mtf, to me. About a month and a half ago, she caught me alone and told me that the way I dress, talk, and walk makes her suspect I'm a lesbian and told me she'll support me nonetheless because it's a parent's job to, but being trans is a whole other thing than sexuality when it comes to coming out. Maybe if I explain the science behind it to her, she'd get it, but I feel like she'll insist I'm just a tomboyish lesbian, since she tells me lesbians have more masculine brains, stuff like that. I could also tell my dad, but since I know more about my mom's opinions on topics like that and my mom's more present than my dad, I'm probably going to be telling my mom first if I do. Part of me feels like I have to tell her, just so she knows I feel this way and I won't have to explain anything if she found out I went by male pronouns at school, even if she doesn't accept me at first. But I just don't want my life to change so much just yet. I try to convince myself it's just a matter of explaining a deep feeling, but I can't ignore that my whole life is going to change one way or another once I tell my parents, one way or another. I want it to be my choice to change my life like that, but not gonna lie, I'm so scared to. Not to mention, my mom's been asking me more and more if I'm lesbian or self-conscious about my body, like I said, and I'm worried one day she'll ask me if I'm trans directly rather than asking if I'm a lesbian. What should I do if that happens? I'm terrified for my life to change now and feel like I need to do it myself instead of someone else changing my life, but I want to just live the way I want to as a man, or boy since I'm still in high school. But if she asks me first, I won't have to initiate the conversation myself. What should I do if she does ask me if I'm trans anytime soon? I really  need help on this
