  • Good westerns

    Talking to a friend made me realize how few good western movies there are out there, so I thought I'd get some recommendations.

    As for my own:

    Anything with Clint Eastwood (except 'Paint Your Wagon')
    Most Kevin Costner westerns (but only his westerns)
    Tom Selleck westerns (at least the more recent ones)

    Come to think of it, I guess I'm pretty non-discriminating about westerns, as long as they don't involve singing cowboys

    I liked both of the Young Guns Movies. Maybe not the most accurate portrail of the life of William H. Bonney (aka Billy The Kid)
    but it was entertaining.

      Oh yeah, add the funny James Garner westerns to my list, like "Support your local sheriff", "Support your local gunfighter", and "Skin game".

        Due to the limited number of westerns shot in the Uk I'll have to throw in a classic US production....

        The Searchers with John Wayne.

          Tombstone was good...mostly due to Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holiday.

            I love westerns! When I was a kid, we lived with my grandparents. My grandpa (Papaw) never missed a western. You could show up at about any time of the day or night and see Bonanza, The Rifleman, Gunsmoke, Palladin or just about any other horse opera you chose. Here are my two favorite western movies:

            The Magnificent Seven
            The Ballad of Cat Ballou

              I agree. He did a really good job in that movie.

                One of my all time favorites has got to be Silverado with Kevin Kline, Scott Glenn and some unknown named Costner!

                Beyond that one, I've always liked High Plains Drifter with Eastwood and another Eastwood one, Pale Rider.
