I agree with this statement. The most memorable fight for me, probably for sheer entertainment value, was the Siege at Alex McSween's homestead in Young Guns. That last gun battle between the army and the Regulators was epic.

I used to watch that over and over . You probably also know this but there is a 3 second Tom Cruise cameo and he takes a bullet in the head. In the commentary they said he was there to visit Emilio and then they asked him if he wanted to be in it and was just like "ok" . Almost like he was just waiting around with nothing to do.


True Grit remake

I just watchedOnce Upon A Time In The West for the first time the other day. Easily as good as TG, TB, & TU.

Hells yes! Sergio Leone is a genius. And Morricone's score is easily one of the best. Sometimes I'll pop it in the player just for the Hell of it.

It's pacing is better, definitely, but Harmonica's story is
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
basically the same as Lee Van Cleef's in For A Few Dollars More, which lowers it a bit for me.

But it's interesting to see a prominent female role in a Leone western, kind of a rarity from what I understand. And Peter Fonda as a cold blooded killer was genius.

Just saw a cool 1972 Western with Jeff Bridges (I didn't even know he had done one before True Grit) called "Bad Company".
It was really good with a lot of great character actors from the 70's and a cool companion piece (Double Feature?) to the True Grit Remake.
Kinda like Rooster Cogburn: The Early Years.
Man, I love those 70's Westerns.

Just finished watching The Outlaw Josey Wales again.
I really like the Native American characters in that film.
Chief Dan Georges ("Little Big Man") and Will Sampson (Chief in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest") are great actors.
Next Up: "Posse" directed by and starring Kirk Douglas (and Bruce Dern.)
(Not the Mario Van Peebles one.)

That's a pretty good and forgotten movie.

Take note of James Stacey's character...the one armed and one legged newspaperman. Stacey had been an up an coming young actor with a series or two under his belt when he was in a motorcycle accident and lost his arm and leg. Kirk Douglas (who produced and directed the movie) gave him his first part in a movie after the accident.

Just finished watching "Posse". It was a really good, ambiguous western.
And James Stacey was pretty charismatic and good as well.
Next up, an "End of the West" double feature: "Monte Walsh"/"Lonely Are the Brave."

I always liked POSSE...saw it in the theaters when it first came out...different for it's time.

Which version of Monte Walsh you going to watch...Lee Marvin or Tom Selleck?

Lonely Are the Brave is a good one too. It was the first thing I took notice of Walter Matthou in.

Yeah, El Topo is a classic, I managed to catch that at the cinema a couple of years ago when they cleaned up a couple of Jodorowsky's movies and re-released them. John Lennon loved it and put up the money for his next movie, the Holy Mountain, which is even weirder, but funny too.

I would say 'Little Big Man' is my favourite western, I don't know if anyone has mentioned it yet on the thread, edit: ah, ok, gwynplaine mentioned it in his 2nd list of favs.
But, it is an amazing film, I had it burned into my head at about the age of 8 when i caught it on tv, epic viewing when you were a kid.

i loved the bit where he thought he was invisible, and made it through the carnage, he was a cool, wise old injun, he could hit out with the wise, and then be completely clueless, sometimes he didn't know what he was doing, but sometimes he did, lol i think i am starting to sound like him. i am trying to place what else i have seen that actor in, but my mind is a blank right now.
