Westerns are probably my favorite film genre.
For one thing I grew up on them, and as I grew up the Western grew up with me with the likes of the 'modern' westerns.
I forgot. Deadwood has been a big thing for me these last few years. I'm currently watching it for the fourth time through with a friend of mine who is equally as taken. He refers to it lovingly as 'Shakespeare with horseshit.'
Just about to ask the same question. The gunfight is the most realistic I've ever seen in a cowboy film.Have you seen Open Range?
"Terror In The Tiny Town" ... almost universally recognized as the worst film ever made (although "Plan 9 From Outer Space" gives it a run for its money ... especially since the release of "Ed Wood").What was the one that was done with the midgets? That one was good.
Thanks!!! I had forgotten the title. Yes, it was a horrible movie...but incredibly entertaining."Terror In The Tiny Town" ... almost universally recognized as the worst film ever made (although "Plan 9 From Outer Space" gives it a run for its money ... especially since the release of "Ed Wood").
"Unforgiven" was great except for the terrible acting by the Kid. I don't know how he got his part. Eastwood must've owed a favor to someone.Of the "classic" era, I love The Ox-Bow Incident and Stagecoach .
Modern favorite westerns include Unforgiven. And only Unforgiven.
From the in-between period (1950s-1980s) I love High Noon, The Good The Bad & The Ugly, The Searchers and Bad Day at Black Rock, which is really a western set in the modern era.
