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!

      Hey LittleRed I really feel your pain, I had/have similar thoughts. Something my therapist said that really stuck with me - you can take HRT and still present yourself as male. 
    • Raven1981
      For me with my Orechiectomy which helps and then to get some gaffs that always works as well.  If you really want to be brave, you can tape everything back and I have found that medical tape works awesome and does not hurt that much.  Tight fitting panties, gaffs, taping, the standard tuck and then there is body shapers.   Just some of my ideas
    • VickySGV
      Actually we have a lot of suggestions here already,.  In the search tool look for "Tucking" and you will come up with at least two long pages of discussions on the subject, and I am betting there are more, since our archived posts no longer show in the search engine.  Surgery is one way although I don't think your crew is quite there yet.  Tucking which is basically pushing the testicles up into the inguinal canals, and then pulling the penis back toward the anus and then putting on snug female panties takes a while to get used to, and you have to get beyond the sexual arousal stage of trying to do it, to make it it's most comfortable.  Until that time wearing a tunic or a full skirt or dress over the crotch area works the best so the fullness hides the "bump".
    • Cyndee
      GCS, takes care of all those problems and more....granted it takes a while, but it's very effective...   When I was pre - op and wanted to hide things, I would use a tighter fitting panty  to tuck with, and another to go over the top with, this approach created a smooth silhouette (double layering).     Good luck   C -

      In my case, this was a story that lasted until I was 60 years old, almost word for word.  I kept busy and some of it was to smack off the dysphoria.  For me, some people who kept me codependent on them died and I was free from the work dealing with them that Dysphoria hit me like a run-away train. 
    • LittleRed
      It's hard to say. All last week I was on a business trip (as John) on the other side of the country. Worked very long days and spent lots of time with customers during and after work (dinner / drinks).   When I get that busy, dysphoria and depression seems to go into a semi dormant state. I'm back home and recovering from the trip and not sure how I feel at the moment.   The good thing is that the trip went well and customer is happy. My boss is happy as always since I'm a key player in that relationship.   I'm just not looking forward to the moments when I'm not busy and my thoughts and feelings play catch-up.

      Hi everyone!   I have been on an emotional roller coaster for two weeks, at times feeling like my head was going to explode with all the self analysis I had been doing. So many sleepless nights I've been exhausted. I've been crossdressing for years. Since I was 10 or 11 I think (i'm 56 now). I been through several painful purges - and everything has been fine for about 2 or 3 years. I've been depressed, overeating and drinking way too much. Generally hating myself and not knowing why. Two weeks ago my wife and 10 year old daughter planned a road trip leaving me on my own for the weekend. Normally when I am on my own I love to crossdress - so I started planning  the clothes I would buy how which Amazon locker to pick them up from - I had it all worked out. A few days before my wife was about to leave I had an overwealming urge to tell her. to two nights I couldn't sleep, thinking it through, going back and forth, In the end I just blurted it out.   My wife is very progressive and works with the LGBT community but even so I wasn't sure how she would react. I know it came as a complete shock to her, but she was very understanding  and supporting. I felt extremely happy I told her, it gave me more confidence. To cut a long story short, since then (last week) I've explored a lot  of who I am, seen a therapist, shaved my body hair, and had a manicure (leaving my nails long and shaped like a woman nails). I'm pretty sure I'm a transgender woman - it just feels right. I'm more more content and less depressed than i have been and feel good about the life - and for the first time, myself. I have a plan to lose weight - which I'm determined to do. Looking forward to the journey ahead (at least I think so ) .

      If you have like tall cabinets or "built-in" units, there's often decorative trim/molding on top that creates a few inches of cover and from below this visually extends another inch or two- so you can fold stuff flat and lay a few things up above tall things and most ppl never think to look there.  We had stuff stashed in an attic area that you could walk over to on the beams to get to the space, otherwise invisible cuz it was around a corner. As long as the insulation was pushed back into place to hide the beams, no one would ever think of walking back there- but that was kinda time consuming and NOT something we could get to easily or when ppl were in the house. 
    • Pixie
      Ok, so what is a comfortable way to deal with the "bulge" issue so that you can more comfortably wear leggings, closer fitted shorts, or even skirts - without being obscenely obvious... Anyone have any suggestions?

      I have my first endo appointment today. So nervous.   My wife is hoping they will find something wrong with me and that I won’t be eligible for HRT. She is still very much against anything that even hints I’m a woman. Hoping she comes around eventually, but I can’t keep going on the way I am now.    Have a a great day everyone.    *hugs*
    • Cyndee
      You will always remember your first. It's a great feeling.....   Congrats !

      I still wear my breast forms whenever I feel like that I need a little help.  My natural size is a 38B and my breast forms are a B cup so it does help me when I am feeling like I need a little help.  But there are some times I sleep in my breast forms and some times I dont.   But to me it is all about comfort and how realistic you look.   What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.            I love Vicky's quote here and I guess that I am a Trans individual cause I will admit that I love wearing a bra but OMG it feels so good to take it off when I get home.
    • Kirsten
      A year in and I still don’t mind wearing a bra. At the start I liked the bralettes best. There still my go to for pjs on super hot nights too. Underwire isn't comfortable, but it sure does a great job of pushing everything where it belongs.  I use the little add a cup chicken cutlets still at times. Usually with something that shows a lot of cleavage cause the rest of the time I just don’t care.
