I have been binging on Encore Westerns lately and I was wondering what other westerns people loved?

My older era western is going to be The Searchers - where Wayne huts down a girl kidnapped by the Indians

My newer era western is Silverado - so many of my favorites are in this movie and it's fun to watch again and again

what are yours?

Anything with Clint Eastwood for sure.

I loved Tombstone. I thought Val Kilmer should have been nominated for the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor. His Doc Holliday was perfect.

He lost to Gene Hackman, who was in Unforgiven, another great western.

I agree with Wpob on Clint Eastwood. Also Once Upon A Time In The West is pretty great.

AWA is right about the Searchers but for some reason I will watch his older black and white westerns when they are on.

And not great cinema but the old shorter westerns from the thirties and forties are a blast.

"Once Upon A Time In The West". Hands down.

If you watch the extras, there's an old segment where Henry Fonda recalls being cast in, and understanding, his role that is hilarious.

We're up at camp right now without satellite, so we've got two over the air station. One is Grit TV. It's all westerns and Walker, Texas Ranger all the time. It's awesome. My favorite right now is the on-going serial "The Cisco Kid." Pancho and Cisco are freaking hilarious. I remember the reruns when I was a kid, but I am enjoying them much more now.

I'm also a big fan of Young Guns and Maverick, and I'll add The Quick and the Dead.

Count me in on the Young Guns love. I loved it so much that I even liked Young Guns 2.

Tombstone is probably my favorite. Although a modern era attempt at westerns that might count as a close second.....Django Unchained. Django was pretty awesome if you can get past the modern era stuff (gore, language, N-word).

I'm not really well versed on older westerns but Two Mules for Sister Sara was a fun watch. I still remember watching that as kid whenever it was on. My grandfather with his Schlits, recliner and guitar in hand would always say "here it comes, watch" and I did.

Big fan of The Quick and The Dead. Even with Sharon Stone, who I can not stand.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It's an odd movie with sections that work like music videos, but that script and cast ... it's sterling.

Do the Trinity movies with Terence Hill count? These ended up being one of my favorite things about getting cable back in the 80's.

Yeah, I'm bored and going through old threads.

Eastwood and Wayne are obviously the gold standards.

For Clint, my favorite is Outlaw Josey Wales ("Dyin' ain't much of a livin', boy."), but Unforgiven, Hang 'em High and, of course, the Trilogy all loom large

For Wayne, I'd go with Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (although that's more a Jimmy Stewart movie, but still a fantastic one) and McClintock!, which is definitely the best funny Western.

Beyond the two icons, Tombstone, High Noon and, more recently, Django Unchained. Hateful Eight looks like it's gonna be damn, damn good, too. Kurt Russell's mustache alone!

Does The Mountain Men count? It's not my favorite but my father's, cousins, and uncle's. They watch/quote it all the time.


Outside of Deadwood I'm not a western fan. But God almighty I love me some Deadwood.

My favorite western, indeed my favorite movies of all-time, are Rio Bravo and El Dorado. The plots are nearly identical; John Wayne stars in both, with Dean Martin and Ricky Nelson in the former, and Robert Mitchum and Jimmy Caan in the latter. I just never grow tired of watching either one.
