Default The Good, The Bad, and The Official Western Thread

Someone had to make it. Westerns have been a part vital part of film as long as film has been around. Starting with The Great Train Robbery, the genre has captured the imaginations of many viewers and refused to let go. It inspired and help spawn many genres along with questioning the morality of the late 1800s. Talk and debate your favorite westerns, western characters, and quotes.

My favorite Westerns:

Once Upon a time in the West:



The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:



High Noon:




Favorite quotes:

From The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly:

Blondie: [counting Angel Eyes' men] One, two, three, four, five, and six. Six, the perfect number.
Angel Eyes:
I thought three was the perfect number.
Blondie:
I've got six more bullets in my gun.

From Once Upon a time in the West:

Morton: Not bad. Congratulations. Tell me, was it necessary that you kill all of them? I only told you to scare them.
Frank: People scare better when they're dying.

From a Fistful of Dollars:

Joe: Get three coffins ready.
Kills 4 guys
Joe: My mistake. Four coffins...

Good Thread. Here are a few of my favorites in no particular order.

_ Rio Bravo.
_ The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.
_ Ride the High Country.
_ The Seven Magnificent.
_ Unforgiven.
_ The Man who shot Liberty Valance.
_ The Searchers.
_ Vera Cruz.
_ Johnny Guitar.
_ The Shootist.
_ The Road Warrior.

And many more that I can't think of right now.
Can't wait for the Coen Bros' take on True Grit, with The Dude as The Duke.

And Unforgiven was a classic. I can't believe I forgot that. Also, I should add 3:10 to Yuma (both the original and the remake).

Awesome. My bias upfront-I don't watch anything John Wayne.

The best off the top.

UNFORGIVEN
Silverado
"The Wild Bunch" - nO stinkin bajez!!

Tombstone

Hang em High
Good, Bad and the Ugly.

Whats the one w/ Yule Brenner-he was a creole hired gunfighter and was hired by this small town to catch this guy...Pat Hingle was in everything wasn't he?

Support your Local Gunfighter

My Television favs.

Steve McQueen's 'Wanted Dead or a Alive' and the greatness of Lucas McCain-'The Rifleman'

I don't mind and I don't think anyone else would mind. In fact, I would love it

The Good The Bad and The Ugly Western Tournament .

This will involve anything westerns and be filled with good bad and ugliest characters ever to grace the silver screen. Its just too bad that westerns are seen as Hallmark worthy films only these days.
Hard to believe westerns are not being explored seriously for they created Eastwood, The Duke and many great legends and made them icons.
Message to Coens don't mess up True Grit please.

Round One Battle 1.

Lonesome Dove.



VS

Open Range.

I haven't seen any of them.
Maybe because I'm not a big Costner fan.
And Tommy Lee Jones looks like Kenny Rogers.

A very sad and powerful "end of an era" Western, with two great performances by Western Icons Randolph Scott and Joel Mc Crea. Also a strong precursor to "Unforgiven".
(And almost anything with Warren Oates in it's got my vote.)

All the westerns mentioned are great, but I just wanna say that the final shootout in 3:10 to Yuma the remake is one of the finest I've seen on film of any genre. Also Open Range's final shootout had a bad ass beginning to it, ah man I love it.
