Without doubt the Leone classic is the untouchable master of the western genre.Eastwood, Wallach & Van Cleef the holy trinity of all that was great about that never to be repeated masterpiece .“Hey Blondie, you know what you are, you’re a dirty son of a…...ayyyayyyyahhhhhhh”!! Brilliant soundtrack too.

Wow. I just went through ALL of wikipedia’s lists of Westerns and found… nearly nothing that I actually like. The only traditional Western that I can really even stand is 1903’s The Great Train Robbery, and that’s more from the POV of a student of film, rather than an average movie-goer.

.
I do like a handful of comedy westerns, though:
– Evil Roy Slade
– Blazing Saddles
– ¬°Three Amigos!
– City Slickers

.
And I also liked Ravenous which is listed as “horror Western” and Serenity which is, of course, a “space western.”

I know nothing about Westerns, although my dad was a huge fan of the old black and white ones.
I did totally love The Quick and the Dead though, if that counts. Also, Undead or Alive, which is a Western…but with zombies! It was awesome. `D

@Symbeline The Quick & the Dead was very good.Sharon Stone being an added bonus for me.

OMG! @Silhouette

Little Big Man is the BEST!

Oh, wow. There are so many. OK, here goes:

The Clint Eastwood Man With No Name series
Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid
Tombstone
The Magnificent Seven
Unforgiven
The Outlaw Josey Wales
The Searchers
Quigley Down Under
The Ox-Bow incident
The Cowboys
If we can include TV shows, I’ll add Deadwood and Gunsmoke.

And many, many more. I could watch westerns all day.

However, I did not enjoy the latest incarnation of 3:10 to Yuma. Russell Crowe should stick to movies with swords, and avoid movies with pistols. He makes for a shitty outlaw.

@ucme You’re right. Thanks.
@Seek_Kolinahr Loved that one. I bet I’ve seen that movie 1,000 times.

@jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities Deadwood rocked, I was pissed when they cancelled it after only 3 seasons. Stoill a little po’d.

dalepetrie's avatar

As someone who is not normally a fan of westerns, I would HIGHLY recommend Dead Man, it breaks the mold.

The Treasure of The Sierra Madre Starring Humphrey Bogart! Directed by John Huston!

This film is the origin of the Blazing Saddles “batches” joke, by the way, and The Stone Roses’ song Fool’s Gold is also based on this movie.

Buttonstc's avatar

Technically a mini-series rather than a movie, but

Lonesome Dove

And for movie

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Stagecoach and True Grit.

Without hesitation, I have to say “The Outlaw,” old as it is.
