What do you guys think is the best Western movie of all time?? From past to present, name your pick. I'm going to go ahead and say I believe the best western is the Outlaw Josey Wales with Clint Eastwood...

Once Upon a Time in the West

spaghetti western by Sergio Leone staring a young Charles Bronson, Henry Fonda, Jason Robards, and the eternally smokin' hot Claudia Cardinale.

It has some of the greatest dialogue ever in a western.

Just a completely freakin' awesome revenge story.

Great pick,

I also love The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.....

But pretty much anything by Sergio Leone. Or anything starring Clint Eastwood (Hang Em High, Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More etc.)

Unforgiven is another Eastwood movie that is very good.

Tombstone, even though i hate Val Kilmer.

City Slickers :lol:

Then i've seen a lot of these John Wayne movies that i have no idea what they're called because A. I haven't seen them in a long time and B. Many of them have similar plots and sort of over lap. But he has a lot of great ones.

I really liked this one he did where he's like fighting with his wife and gets drunk and starts fighting his son in law, but i can't remember what it was called. If anyone knows tell me :foundout:

How can you hate Kilmer after his performance in Tombstone?

Unforgiven for me is the poop. Although Back to the future III was the most accurate depiction of the Old West

Magnificent Seven is brilliant, i don't think i mentioned that on my list but i love it. Own it on DVD as well as The Good The Bad and the Ugly.

How is Appaloosa? That looked solid and i really want to see it.

Great list...best for me that I've seen so far. I forgot all about the quick and the dead...awsome movie. Magnificent Seven I just watched last month and it rocked...you can't beat Dukho(sp) from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly as a bandito.

In between runs to the kitchen for some Thanksgiving seconds I was able to slowly watch two westerns today. I mean slowly because I had to pause and either eat or take a nap in between scenes. The movies I watched were High Noon and Once Upon a Time in the West.

After watching a lot of Sergio Leone's movies lately High Noon was kind of a let down. Don't get me wrong it was a decent movie and I enjoyed it, but it doesn't stand up to the spaghetti westerns.

Now Once Upon a Time in the West was great. It took me a while to get through because it's a lengthy movie and I had to take a few breaks but it was well worth it. Claudia Cardinale is absolutely stunning in this movie. She's the best looking wh*re I've ever seen in a movie. :lol: It's too bad Sergio didn't allow for a little more skin to be shown, although what he did was a perfect tease.

I know it doesn't fit into the movie category but does anybody like the show Kung Fu? It's the best western show I've ever seen. I'd put it up there with my favorite western movies as well. I'm glad they didn't give the lead role to Bruce Lee, as much as I like him he would have messed it up. David Carradine was great as Kwai Chang Caine.

I have to say that I love the Eastwood westerns. My favourite of the bunch has to be High Plains Drifter. It had that slight supernatural element to it which added a new dimension to the movie. The hellish (literally) ending is one of the greatest in all westerns..in my humble opinion.
