    Yeah, Van Cleef is, IMO, at his best in For A Few Dollars More; that's basically what makes that one my favorite of the three.

    No particular order;

    Rio Bravo
    Something Big
    One Upon A Time in The West
    Outlaw Josey Wales
    The Good The Bad And The Ugly
    Unforgiven
    Little Big Man
    The Magnificent Seven
    The Long Riders
    The Wild Bunch

    I also have a soft spot for Tombstone and Wyatt Earp but I don't think they're worthy of being up there with the classics. I've been to Tombstone and it's a small place.

    The actual Corral is ridiculously cramped and tiny and I imagine the shoot out as being much like the one depicted in unforgiven when William Money goes into the bar to kill little Bill. Lot's of lead flying but the coolest most composed hands won out.

    I think that the Long Riders is a woefully underrated Western. Walter Hill made a very cool movie and the final shoot out is stylized violence but always seems brutally realistic to me.
    1 people high five this.

    I almost put the shootist in my top ten.

    I remember being very moved by it when I first saw it as a kid. Then when I was older I was even more move knowing that Wayne really was dying and this was an almost perfect footnote to his career.

    This probably doesn't exactly fit in but I'm a big fan of "Lonesome Dove" which was a mini-series.

    Does Back to the Future count? I think I recall a cowboy hat in there somewhere. I'm not a western kind of guy so all I've got is Back to the Future. LOL sad I know, but it lengthens this thread if nothing else.

    Lonesome dove was a great series and is a great film if viewed in it's entirety.

    LOL... I was thinking the same thing when I saw this thread. Not much of a western movies guy either. Back the the Future 3 came to mind after Tombstone. I could probably get into some good westerns, it just does not interest me to try. Besides, I hate the Cowboys.
