    Once Upon a Time in the West is probably my favorite Western. Among recent films, I was very impressed with Hostiles.

    Don’t think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It’s self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can’t try to do things. You simply must do things. —Ray Bradbury

    Once Upon a Time in The West, best in every way. Just ask the Harmonica Man... "You don't know how to play"...

    Those scripted by Elmore Leonard are pretty close, 3:10 to Yuma, Valdez is Coming, Hombre...

    - The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly of course
    - Silverado
    - True Grit (both but have to give the nod to the remake)
    - Dances with Wolves
    - Wyatt Earp (with Kevin Costner). I thought the intensity of the character was amazing. When I first started watching it, I was comparing Dennis Quaid's Doc Holiday against Val Kilmer's (who did a great job) from Tombstone. By half way, I was retrospectively comparing Kilmer's against Quaid's. That's how good Quaid was.
    - Unforgiven
    - Pale Rider.
    - Open Range. I loved the wisdom in that movie. Great lines.

    "Boss Spearman: A man's trust is a valuable thing, Button. You don't want to lose it for a handful of cards."

    Mack: Shame what this town's come to.
    Charley Waite: You could do something about it.
    Mack: What? We're freighters. Ralph here's a shopkeeper.
    Charley Waite: You're men, ain't you?
    Mack: I didn't raise my boys just to see 'em killed.
    Charley Waite: Well you may not know this, but there's things that gnaw at a man worse than dying.

    Charley Waite: I'm tryin' to put some bad times behind me, but sometimes they don't stay put.


    I've never seen The Searchers. Have to put that one on my list. Constantly told it's a great one.

    Just saw the remake of Magnificent Seven. Fun movie. A bit too cliched but, Westerns are the one genre I kind of enjoy the old cliche's. Like the guy going into the store front, you can hear the fighting and the camera stays outside. You know someone's getting thrown through the window. The new Magnificent Seven had cliche's by the fistful. Not great, not horrible either.

    I loved the original Seven Samurai. That's a great flick.

    I'm a great fan of westerns. My favourites include:

    Red River
    Rio Bravo
    My Darling Clementine
    Fort Apache
    She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
    The Searchers
    The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance


    and one more recent one as well, Dead Man.
    Wäre das Faktum wahr, – wäre der außerordentliche Fall wirklich eingetreten, daß die politische Gesetzgebung der Vernunft übertragen, der Mensch als Selbstzweck respektiert und behandelt, das Gesetz auf den Thron erhoben, und wahre Freiheit zur Grundlage des Staatsgebäudes gemacht worden, so wollte ich auf ewig von den Musen Abschied nehmen, und dem herrlichsten aller Kunstwerke, der Monarchie der Vernunft, alle meine Thätigkeit widmen.
