    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.

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

    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

    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.

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

    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.

    started a topic Good westerns

    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

    OK, we have a thread for books, a thread for music, an entire forum for cooking, it's about time we had a thread for my favorite subject: movies.

    I'm a total moviephile. I have every movie channel our cable system offers, and netflix.com's biggest subscription package. And I wish I had...

    The Last Samurai
    by Doug Nelson
    Edward Zwick is a more-than competent director who has made some capable movies, and some that I physically detest. This is largely the fault of his love of the "ideal worth dying for", which is central to most of his movies. I, on the other hand, feel few ideals are worth even discussing,...

    This is a movie where the director takes perverse delight in misleading you. Even the casting is meant to mislead you, since Steve Martin doesn't normally come to mind when you think dark, noir thrillers.

    The first third of the film and the very end had me literally squirming in discomfort....

    Horror movies
    by Doug Nelson
    I was going to post this as a 'guilty pleasure', but I actually don't feel all that guilty about it: I love a good horror movie.

    I just watched "Cube" and can recommend it (kind of gross, but excellent production values).

    I'll pass on most horror series, although...

    "Remembering" vs. "Rewatching"
    by Doug Nelson
    I recently got into a conversation and mentioned that a movie they mentioned remembered better than it rewatched. The person I was speaking with had no idea what I was talking about, but I'd assumed everyone thought about movies in that way. Some movies simply seem better in the memory, even very recent...
