Netflix Movie Fans

10, just 10! That's what makes it an interesting exercise. You need to choose.....by placing Red River on the list, maybe you drop The Searchers (I don't think so) off the list. This assignments is only for the hardcore Western fan. If you can't cut it, take an easier assignment first like the Top 10 John Wayne westerns or the Top 10 Jimmy Stewart westerns or the Top 10 Hector Elizondo westerns (if you're a real wimp)!

Love the WIld Bunch. Just rented it from Netflix. Great film.

I also like some the Westerns that have come out in the last few years:
Open Range (one of the best gunfight scenes ever)
The Missing
Appaloosa
Assassination of Jesse James...
3:10 to Yuma (the loudest gunshots ever in a movie)
I watched The Searchers about a year ago and loved it. I ended up buying it for a few friends and family members last Christmas just to make sure they watched it.

Snoril, I just added it to my Instant queue. Thanks

I was watching it during the day on Dec 31. Had to pause it and do something else. When I came back the next day to watch it...


It had expired on Dec 31!!! ARG
Just got around to seeing Searchers a month ago, can you believe it , been a western fanatic for 40 some years,, haven't seen Red River yet either,, I'm ashamed to say.

A western fan for over 40 years and you haven't seen Red River?????

Lynch his unworthy ass! I say, stretch him!
besides They said watch the John Ford first, he's the greatest western director ?

To quote The Wild Bunch: "They? Who the hell is they?"

Whoever "they" are, it's hard to argue with the claim the Ford belongs at the top of the heap. But great as he is, western fans need what they get from Howard Hawks and Sam Peckinpah and William Wellman and John Huston and Anthony Mann and Budd Boetticher and Charles Marquis Warren and Robert Aldrich, among many others.

Feed the kitty a broad diet. Don't wait for duck a l'orange if it keeps you from tasting beef Stroganoff.
I can't help it. Sergio Leone's westerns are too Italian for me. I agree they have elements that you'd only see at their best through Italian eyeballs -- like, say, Charles Bronson putting the harmonica in Henry Fonda's mouth -- but I'm too old a dog to accept them as real members of the western genre.

I guess The Treasure of the Sierra Madre can be called a "western", but . . .
Hombre is a good one.
Ok, just joined this group and this sounded like a great discussion to start with. It seems that I'm not as versed in "classic" westerns as some others here might be, but these would be my top 10 picks:
1 Once Upon A Time In The West
2 The Outlaw Josey Wales
3 High Plains Drifter
4 The Unforgiven
5 The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
6 A Fistful Of Dollars
7 The Proposition
8 Four Of The Apocalypse
9 Jeremiah Johnson
10 Last Of The Mohicans
not sure if #10 is really a "western" seein' as how it takes place in the eastern part of the country...
and yes, I like my westerns to be mean, dark, dirty/gritty, and sometimes weird.
New to the group and I love westerns. Has anybody seen The Shootist? It was John Wayne's last movie. It also has a young Ron Howard and Lauren Bacall. The finale is a classic send off. Definately top ten.
Stoney, if you like mean, dark, dirty, gritty - have you seen The Wild Bunch? Sam Peckinpah brought realism to the screen in this one.

Here's the trailer for it;
Been meanin to see Peckinpahs The Wild Bunch but um haven't yet, thanks for the tip!
