What's Your Favorite Western?

Recommended Posts

Guest Irielle

I love westerns and my favorite of all time is 'Once Upon a Time in the West'. It's epic and the mythology is unsurpassed. Henry Fonda is the best western villain you'll ever see. The second spot in my list goes to almost anything else. I love all the Clint Eastwood films and especially 'Unforgiven'. 'Open Range' has a spectacular shootout at the end (don't they all, lol). I recently watched 'Silverado' again after a long time and love it. 'The Seven Samurai', although Japanese, is truly a western (and remade in the US as 'The Magnificent Seven'.) Okay, I'll stop now :D

There are so many westerns I still have yet to see, that I wouldn't like to say one is my ultimate favourite. John Wayne is one of my fave actors.

I've yet to see the remake of 'true grit' but I loved the original and also read the book by Charles Portis.

Shane is an okay film, though I much preferred the book by Jack Schaefer (sp?)

Lonesome Dove! Is one of my all time fave books along with Shane. Although I've regrettably never actually seen the mini series. Keep meaning to get it on DVD. But just so many other films I keep meaning to buy also!

Recently read Hondo. Hope to also watch that on film too, John Wayne is in it and it has a dog in it, so obviously I don't see how it can go far wrong. Plus the dog in that film is the son of Lassie.

3:10 to yuma is a fave of mine, but yet again I have not seen the remake! I've heard some say it's better than the original. Though I opt out of hype, hype tends to ruin films.

The assassination of Jesse James by the coward robert ford is another good one.

Broken Trail which i think was just a tv thing with two episodes both lasting about an hour or so.

Jeremiah Johnson is another fave.

The cowboys

Last of the dogmen.

OMG, Matt, you have to see this miniseries. It follows the book really closely, and the actors really are extraordinary. One of the best westerns ever made, IMHO.

For me it would be about any film with Clint Eastwood, and the two films "They Call Me Trinity" and "Trinity is Still My Name" (I love spaghetti westerns :D)

What was the name of that Jane Fonda western where Lee Marvin played the good guy (a very drunk hired gun) and the bad guy (dressed in black with a silver eyepatch)? They were brothers. That movie was a hoot.

I also liked the one with Doris Day, who played a sheep rancher in the middle of beef country, but I cannot remember the name of that one either.

I loved aliens and cowboys, a lot, but I honestly don't know why.

Yee Haw! Git along little dogies!

It started to bug me so I googled them:

The Jane Fonda movie was "Cat Ballou" and the Doris Day movie was "The Ballad of Josie".

Oh, my, yes. The show was great fun, and if any man could be considered gorgeous, Robert Conrad would be him. *Swoon*

I have to go with The Good The Bad and The Ugly

Starring Clint Eastwood

Sergio Leone has to be one of my favorite directors. No shocker that one of my favorite modern directors is Quinton Tarantino.

Cowboys and Aliens ! lol

The remake of True Grit was really good.

My all time favorite though are the Terrence Hill movies, especially "My name is Nobody".

I got many favorites but if I had to choose just one then it would be the original "True Grit"...

McCabe & Mrs. Miller.

Of this film critic Roger Ebert wrote:

Robert Altman has made a perfect movie.

I mean, Julie Christie, Keith Carradine needing new socks, Warren Beatty needing to bathe, Shelley Duvall earning her keep, gun fights in the bleak days of a Pacific Northwest winter, a harem of hot tubbing soiled doves, and an amazing soundtrack by Leonard Cohen? Gimme a break!

I was in college and so wanted someone with tonsorial talent to style my hair like Julie Christie's. It was winter in Vermont and I imagined snow falling in my 'beautiful hair' just like in hers in the film.

Never happened, though, as David Mamet made me get it cut short for a part in some stupid play that he'd written.

The Magnificent Seven.

What needs be said here?

The Long Riders

Anyone even heard of this one?

This film about the James/Younger gang featured something like four (three?) sets of brothers playing sets of brothers. The Carradines are here, making Keith the only one to appear in two of my selections. Now throw in HBO's Deadwood and he'd have the hat trick!

(And alright, every spaghetti western ever made. How about this, though, for all of you Clint Eastwood fans: does the name Rowdy Yates ring a bell?)

I don't recall seeing your first pick, Chrysee, but I sure like your other two. Yup, I am (unfortunately) old enough to have watched the original episodes of Rawhide. Me and my brother used to sing along with the theme song, and can still sing it when we're in the mood. That last note is a doozy. LOL!

Oh Sweetie!

If you have never seen McCabe & Mrs. Miller, you so owe it to yourself. It is magnificently melancholy with ambiance piling up in drifts! And Julie Christie is to die for. Come to think of it, I want so to believe that I was that semi-stately, opium smoking harlot in a past life!

      Well, if dad is paying for it, I guess he has some say so on the issue, but little does he know how fun some Enby's can be.  If he gets to know a few -------- but I guess he won't.  His loss entirely.  I feel bad, but for now you are having the right attitude about it.

      Beautiful photo. In a couple of weeks, it should be sunny like that once the June gloom is gone.

      Naturally, I've been wondering whether there are any entries in the 63 pages (currently) of this thread that involve a Rubber Chicken.   Search claims that to not be the case, but I have my doubts, given the stealthiness of Rubber Chickens, and how friends have surprised me with them! 🙂   Astrid

      (Disclaimer: I am not out to my family because they are against anything LGBTQ related)   So it was a normal family dinner with me and my family sitting down to some dang good soup I'd slaved over today. The topic of conversation? My wedding. Personally, I'd like to get married someday, so I was joking with my brother that because he wasn't being nice to me that he was no longer invited.   Then, suddenly, out of the blue, my father chimes in with: "You can't invite any nonbinary people".   I'm silent out of shock (Because how does he even know that word!?!?!?) The rest of my family are silent, but soon start asking questions.   Turns out, he'd seen on the news today that Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye came out as nonbinary.  I probably should have found it hurtful, or have been scared, but to be honest, I just laughed. Even if it was an inappropriate moment to do so.  Because he said that to me, who identifies as a nonbinary gender. Who would be the one of the two people that the wedding is all about. God, if he knew. 😅 Guess I'm not allowed to be invited to my own wedding anymore!

      In my experience you find good people when you are happy confident and okay being alone. When you are like that it’s like you share the best of yourself. You give off an awesome vibe and people like that. That’s when I’ve always met my long relationships.    Being trans is unfortunately something with negative connotations. So are lots of things. But people find partners that love them for who they are. There are no limiting factors. And you never know who that person could be. So all anyone can do is live. Be yourself and be your best. And not worry about it. I’d hate to be sad about it forever just waiting. I’d just go live life. And be me.

      Good evening from here, sipping coffee after dinner, tastes great, and glad to be home after 13 days on the road down and up the west coast. Here is a pic I took from across the marina in SD and hotel complex I stayed at in the background...

      Litha (midsummer, summer solstice) approaches. This Saturday, the sun will be at its strongest, longest day.    The full moon Esbat is now, tonight.    Which means that the representative full masculine power of God (summer solstice)and the representative full feminine power of God (Full  moon)  will be the closest they come together astronomically and astrologically this year.   My mind has moved in interesting directions over the past few days.  The goddess calls...   Will attend a Litha Fire festival this weekend to celebrate.

      By all means stop looking, but do not put words into other people's mouths. I've heard all 4 of those lines too, along with the classic, "it would feel weird being more than friends with you" and a few others.  Just enjoy being yourself, if you do not think you are worth the time why should anyone else? (a lesson I have recently learnt/still learning).   I'd bet you have plenty of good qualities, heck get some cats if you have really given up on people - but if you are strong enough to transition then you are strong enough to find more to look forward in your life than just skipping to the end of the book.  
    • Raven1981
      I am with you DeeDee.  Even before transitioning, I was always put into the friend zone.  Then I just hated these famous lines I was told.   1. Your too much of a friend to be a relationship person.   2. You have just not found the right person yet.   3. There is plenty of fish in the sea.   4, You dont have to date, cause your not the dating type of person.   All these lines I just hate with a passion.  They are all just the nice way of saying get away your ugly and I dont like you.   That's why I am just giving up and will just die lonely and alone
