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!

The remake of True Grit was really good.

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,

Sally

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.

      Sounds like you are doing very well.  Back when I started things out on the name change, I could not do the gender change until after GCS.  Several months after my GCS and all the changes for me made, they changed the laws -- for the better -- so I would not have had the long drawn out  program that I had to do.  Keep your head high and you will make it, and laugh about all of the hassle.

      Welcome Skye. As many have said it takes time to figure things out so taking your time will allow you to find the right fit for you.    Laura Beth

      I have been wanting to legally change my name and gender marker for close to a year now. I am now divorced and living as a female as much as possible which has it complications. Today I went to see my regular doctor for a refill of my pain killers; I was dressed as Laura as I usually do since starting my transition. I have to go by my male name there because they won't use my preferred name like I do at my gender doctor's office. The doctor's nurse comes out and basically stands next to me and asks the front desk clerks if I had checked in for my appointment using my male name. She is told that I have so turns around and calls my name, to which I get up. She has a bit of a stunned look on her face and leads me to the examining room to wait for the doctor. I get my new prescription from the doctor and leave to pick it up at the pharmacy. When I get to the pharmacy the assistant pharmacist has some fun trying to find me in the system due to me going by Laura there and the name on the prescription was in my male name.    Before I have to see the doctor again which shouldn't be for about three or four months I will have to get the name change and gender marker taken care of.  I should also get it done before I see the psychiatrist this summer some time. I have started to receive mail in my preferred name which I was afraid was being sent back for some reason. As I posted else wheres my counselor has told me I am doing well at picking out appropriate outfits to wear that will help me fit in. The hormones have been a blessing in many ways, from slowing facial hair growth, allowing me to relax better mentally and changing my body physically.    Laura Beth

      Being safe online is definitely top priority but I think online dating can be done safely. I have a friend who is a cis woman who went on a few dates with a trans guy before he told her he was trans. Once he told her, she immediately called me to tell me about it and she was really sweet, if a little misinformed. She just kept saying, "but he's so HOT. He's definitely a man!" I had to roll my eyes and tell her that yes, trans men are men and can be just as conventionally attractive as cis men. Last I heard they were still dating and it was going great

      I love your stories, Charlize! I once had a friend who owned a red Nissan. His had big tires and looked more like a man-toy. I still miss my first Toyota (new), which got excellent mileage and didn't need a single repair in 135,000 miles. The second was geared for towing and guzzled gas. There's a huge auto show going on in Detroit over the next week and I hope to go and caress a few truck fenders   Gwen
    • MaryMary
      I can get why your friend is down. Dating for a cis man is hard (at least according to my own anecdotal experience). i dated with a male presentation for 1 month after separating from my ex wife but before coming out as a trans woman.   How many woman I actually dated? 0 To how many woman I talked online? 0   Dating is hard if you are not super pretty, lol
    • MaryMary
      I find that topic interesting.   Ok, I get that that's dangerous but more and more dating work with online dating sites. I personally make sure the other person know i'm transgender as soon as possible and I chat with this person for quite a bit before meeting in a neutral place with plenty of people. I'm not that active in dating because that's something that confuses me a lot but I had a couple of dates and it worked 1 or 2 times already.   I don't want to mislead people but at least here in Canada I don't have the impression that it's more dangerous for a trans woman then for a cis woman. My ex had a couple of dates too and I would say that she had stranger stories then me.   My feeling is that if you have an active life and you wait to find someone in real life you can wait a lot since there's so much people dating online.   to me the advantage of dating online is that I can put a transgender flag with "proud to be trans" written on it and write that I had the surgery in my description. I call that my "douchebag filter" In real life it can be more awkward and take too much time for the other person to know and ending up being more dangerous.   Dating only trans people, at least here in my local community, do not seem like a realistic option since we are too few. Finding the right person would be next to impossible...   well, that was my 2 cents on that. I,m actually surprised by the comments so far.
