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!

      Reflecting Wreakage   A wreakage but a catastrophe, To both lost and will never be found, To be tossed away for slight, Never to be wanted, Never to be cared. As it like sand cast in the wind, Fades into the empty void before us. Good riddance one might say, If not for the wind  Throwing the sand back In the face as currents turn. A wreakage maybe a catastrophe But forgetting it is the sin.

      A lot of us totally experience rises and falls in the intensity of our dysphoria.  For a lot of us, we could get it to go away for awhile, but it would come back even stronger the next time.  Other ppl totally have different experiences.  There may be people out there we never hear from, because they can totally manage their dysphoria, and that is what they choose to do.   The key is to take your time and work things through.  No one else can tell you if your trans or not, or what to do about it if you are.  That is something that's going to take some serious introspection.  I totally recommend reading and watching videos from experts.  Ask lots of questions of ppl who have transitioned.  Make your own choice.   Even if you decide to transition, it isn't a destination.  Transition is a journey, and it really doesn't ever end.  You always change and grow.  It isn't like you decide you're trans and the dysphoria vanishes.  It takes time.  There may be a lot of things you need to do to make your dysphoria go away, and it may never totally go away.   You have taken the biggest step.  You've admitted to yourself you're dysphoric.  That's a huge step.  It's okay to be here for awhile.  You might consider just identifying as a dysphoric person for awhile, while you figure things out.  That's okay.  Idk if you have talked to your parents about your dysphoria yet, but that might be a first step, rather than making a decision and then dropping it on them.  Just say, "Hey, i got this thing and there isn't anything i can do to make it go away."  Maybe let them know that a lot of ppl have tried to get over dysphoria and it never goes away.  It is in the manual psychologists use to diagnose ppl as a real thing.  Once they know it is a real thing, maybe they will support seeing a gender therapist?   Like i said, you totally have to make your own decision.  People can help you by giving you a safe place to learn, and helping you learn, but in the end you have to decide.

      I used to play a computer game called nethack, which uses text to draw a map and monsters are represented with letters. It displays text messages at the top of the screen to explain what is happening in the game. A screenshot of the game is at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NetHack#/media/File:Nethack_releasing_a_djinni.png to see what I'm talking about. The player's character is represented by a @ symbol. The player selects a gender at the beginning of the game and it always felt good to select female, even though I don't actually see a female character (the player is a @ whether male or female) and it has little effect in the game. Sometimes the character is referred to with pronouns in the text messages. There is an amulet in the game that causes the player's gender to change. I am always disappointed when that happened and it felt uncomfortable to continue so I ended the game and started over. It's not strange at all to me to feel better about playing a female character in a game. It felt better to me even in a game where gender is not noticed much.

      MikaReich i would suggest that you look into Nar-Anon which is a support group for the family of drug users other than alcoholics. They can be found at:  nar-anon.org  While we cannot get another sober we can help ourselves and others to get through the wreckage an addict leaves behind.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Mind I ask why she used to begin with? I understand if it's too personal and I don't expect an answer, so no worries. I'm more glad your daughters are safe, but I still feel terrible for the circumstances, it's unfortunate. Hope your brightness keeps them more than well nurtured and safe.

      Live, love, laugh as much as you can and for as long as you can, for life is but moments we meet and make for yourself and to all a goodnight after on. If only forever could happiness last, but guess I'll have to settle with next best, if only at least minimum. Just walking around packing, as warm, detached, and uncomfortable as it can get, puts me on the moon with feeling of both joy and terror. Would like to be rid of the terror part, cuz fear is the mind killer, and nature always will take the rest of whatever society leaves behind. So I try to enjoy what time I have no matter how hard it seems.

      Hey beautiful people,   Today it’s suppose to rain all day. Only suppose to get up to 66. I’m a little sad today I don’t get to see my kids. Easter my ex took the kids to her boyfriends house and they had plans for Easter. My kids wanted to spend time with there dog that just had puppies. They were keeping the dog at his house. I gave up my holiday to her but did not make the arrangement that we would switch. I kinda thought it was just assumed. Well, It wasn’t. I told her in a nice civil text I would like kids today. She text back in an uncivil text that I gave up my holiday and I wasn’t going to take hers. Also my son wanted some food from Sonic. He told me mom said ok. He lied and she screamed at me for that. When we were married she would get mad at me if I took the kids to McDonald’s or got them junk food. Now 6 years later she still is trying to control me. I hate this! I talked with a help line through my work and she said no one controls you. It’s you that give them the control. Yes, I believe that but when a person owns the car they can take it away. She has full physical custody. My control is not getting angry with her and starting a fight. We fought in our marriage over things just like this. I refuse to engage in a fight with her because it always ends in court. I will miss my children this Holiday but now I know never to assume ever again. My ex doesn’t have a heart or care about me this is obvious and so sad😞. It’s not that I want her to love me but I want her to respect my position. She doesn’t even respect me enough to call me Dad to them. She doesn’t know about Tessa but she does know about my female side and she also tells the children that I’m wrong and crazy for feeling that way and if I ever dress like a woman they are to call the police or her. I will stand strong and not let her get the best of me. I won’t beg and plead like she wants me to do. I did this in our marriage when she withheld sex from me just to be mean. I am not a dog and I won’t be treated like one. I’m s

      I'll try smaller spaced out portions. Thank you for responding.   I had fainted twice from not getting enough calories for my high metabolism.   Its had been 2 or 3 days of that when I posted the opening. I've eaten small amounts since, not enough..   I'll try to do better. The situation involving my friends got drastically worse before it got before it got any better, but I think where fine now for the most part.  My friends are like family, like a foundation.  I've not built up my own self esteem or willpower high enough yet and I know I need to because their friends not therapists, I can lean on them but I can't rely on them for my own happiness.
