    Even though its a dead genre . . . been watching a few lately and I've decided my favorite western is Peckinpaugh's The Wild Bunch.

    Anyone else have a favorite?

      How about a western omlette? Sounds good to me!

    Oh, probably The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.  I love pre-Clint Westerns, too, though.

      That's my favorite one too.  I love Clint Eastwood movies.

    The Cowboys is really good (John Wayne is a favorite in our house!)

    I would go with the classics Wild Bunch, A Few Dollars More, Good Bad Etc.

    However Open Range was very poignant, and very brutal to some extent.

    I would have to say though Once Upon a Time in the West... pure Bronson Power... is my favorite.

      Another newer one that is often overlooked is "Seraphim Falls".

    Of the old Hollywood westerns, I'd have to go with the original Stagecoach and High Noon. Of more recent oaters, I'd go with McCabe and Mrs. Miller and the remake of True Grit.

    Difficult one because I absolutely adore the western genre and would have to say it’s not dead, just sleeping, lol.

    Anyway I adore the original “True Grit”, I think “Once Upon a Time in the West” is a master-piece and the likes of “Open Range” and “Appaloosa” are pretty decent modern takes on the genre. But then I could go on with the likes of “The Rare Breed” and “Fort Apache” which are just as impressive.

    "For a Few Dollars More" ... or "Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid".

    A little known movie I saw a while back sticks in my mind.

    I really recommend it.   

    Gunfighters Moon, starring Lance Henrickson.

    Agree with everyone who's mentioned a Duke or Clint movie, but I think my all-time favorite is the Magnificent Seven, which was basically a western remake of an old, silent Japanese film classic, the Seven Samurai.

      Yeah, I love The Magnificent Seven.  Yul is hilarious...he struts like a cowboy dancer.

    My Name Is Nobody - 1974
    Henry Fonda, Terrance Stamp.

      Close.  That would be Terrence Hill.

      I get the theme to this in my head all the time. I think it's all the whistling.

    Hill you're right. And all these years I thought it was stamp.

    I don't watch many Westerns, but Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid is one of my favorite movies of all time.
