If your favorite isn't listed, post below.
Tombstone, hands down!
"I'm your huckleberry!"
They are all great but when Clint spits the chewing tobacco on the dog it was priceless.
What?? No Young Guns?? Yeah it wasn't historically accurate but still a great western!
And, even if it didn't take place in America, I cannot believe you forgot Quigely Down Under.
Im not a big western movie watcher, but I will watch both Tombstone moves over and over.
Guns for San Sebastian
Quote:"A man goes from the place he's born to the place he dies."
The Wild Bunch
"Dutch, there are just some people who can't stand to admit they're wrong"
My Name is Nobody-and all the Trinity movies with Terence Hill
"Sam Peckinpah. That's a beautiful name in Navajo"
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
"Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?"
"I'm tired of men always coming and going, going and coming and always too soon."
I could go on...
Sorry guys, but I liked "Open Range" because I thought it portrayed the firearms of the period very well as being inaccurate and hard to master. The shotgun was the order of the day and well deserved for it's reptutation.
As for the list at the top, a tie for me between Silverado and Josie Wales.
Sorry, forgot a good one:
Sergeant Edgar Millen: I'm going to close my eyes and pray you disappear.
[shuts both eyes, pauses, than opens one eye]
Never had much luck prayin'.
I know these aren't your 'classic western' movies, and many are placed late in the frontier (Death Hunt isn't even the US) but they are some movies I really like.
Dude, I was torn between Tombstone, The Outlaw Josy Wales, and the Magnificent Seven (actually a great remake of the 7 Samurai, old west style), but old Clint got my vote.
Tombstone is and always will be one of my favorites, great movie, but without Josey, it would have never been. I would have also voted for the Good, The Bad, and the Ugly, or For a Fistful of Dollars, etc...
The Magnificent Seven is just a classic, and I bought it not long ago to accompany some of my classic Hollywood movies. I forget how much I like some of those older ones. I got it along with the Great Escape.
Finally put my vote down for "The Magnificent Seven". Even if it's not my favourite western, it's a damn good film, a remake of an equally great film from Akira Kirasawa, and Yul Brenner was just badass in it.
"A woman should be a good cook.....I'm a good cook."
"Just how are you gonna get back down that hill?"
Kurosawa made many movies, most of them better than "The Seven Samurai"
Brenner was ok in the mediocre American ripoff.... :wink:
Back to the Future, Pt. III
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: What's your name, dude?
Marty McFly: Uh, Mar-, uh... Eastwood. Clint Eastwood.
Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen: What kind of stupid name is that?
It just needed to be there :!:
Primal told me his favorite was not on the list............I think is was Broke back mountain :wink:
McClintok; "I'm not gonna hit ya, I'm not; The Hell I'm Not".
John Wayne : All his movies.
Clint Eastwood; The Good the Bad and the Ugly: "In this world my friend there are two kinds of people; Those with loaded guns, and those that dig; You dig".
Tombstone; Kurt Russell: "You Tell him Hells comin and I'm comin with him".
High Plains Drifter
Quigley Down Under
and so many more and I won't try to list them all.
McKlintock (spelling?) The John Wayne one.
