Default What is your Favorite Western?

Westerns are one of my favorite genres and I find it unfortunate that there aren't as many as there used to be. There have been so many good westerns over the years that it's difficult to choose which is my favorite. I loved the turn that they took in the mid sixties with the Spaghetti Western and I consider the dollars trilogy to be among the best trilogies in film history. If I had to make a decision I suppose I would pick The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Personally, I believe it possessed the greatest combination of plot, humor, acting and cinematography.



All three lead actors, Eastwood, Wallach, and Van Cleef were brilliant in their roles and the ending is one of the great scenes in history.

Another one of my favorites would be Unforgiven. This is a very dark movie but is so well done, with fantastic acting, Hackman especially, and a beautiful score.

All of the following could be #1 to me:

The Searchers
Liberty Valance
Unforgiven
Good, Bad, Ugly
Once Upon a Time in the West

Followed on the next tier by:

The Proposition
Josey Wales
Stagecoach
Red River
Rio Bravo
Open Range
High Plains Drifter
True Grit (both the original and remake have their redeeming qualities and belong on this list)
Pale Rider
The Naked Spur

And then below them:

Fistful
For a Few Dollars More
The Far Country
Winchester 73
The Man from Laramie
Hang em High
The Shootist
El Dorado

All I can think of off the top of my head, certainly I've missed some of my favorites.

I don't consider it one, no. It's just as good or better as any film on my list, but I wouldn't categorize it in that way at all.

I don't really like Westerns (My Dad loves it), but The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was a really good film, the soundtrack in that movie is top notch.

Most people will pick an old movie but I think 3:10 to Yuma is every bit as good as any classic you can name.

It is one of the best movies of the past 10 years as well.
