Been meaning to make this for a while, just saw the thread about the best shootout so it reminded me. What's your favorite ?

Tombstone.

Only problem with that movie is the fake mustaches look too fake.



(In before someone posts the link from the director insisting they are real. I'm like, yeah, of course HE'S going to say that).

Can't remember the name.

But John Wayne takes some kids on a cattle drive and it gets overran by thieves but they still make it.

Tombstone...quigley, 3:10 to yuma(new version) lonsome dove and any western with tom selleck I think he makes a great cowboy plus he's very particular that the guns are correct in his films.

Once upon a time in the west...with Charles Bronson, or The good, bad and the ugly. The Sergio Leon movies were all fantastic.

Just kidding on the Cowboys & Aliens.

I have to say I thought 3:10 to Yuma was dumber than a bag of hammers. From the letting the bad guys know about the fake coach (Hey, we're going to lock you in the back and hope the bad guys don't kill you. How will they know to follow it? You see that guy over there? Where? Right over there. OK. He's a bad guy and he'll tell the rest of the bad guys. Why don't we just go kill him?) to not shooting them in the street to the whole "I'm a cripple and my kid would think better of me if you'd shoot all your partners and let me send you to prison". Just crap.

For A Few Dollars More is great as well.

Yea he does. I just didn't want to come out with that part and be a spoiler for anyone that wants to watch it.

Unforgiven is the best western ever made, IMHO. It's peerless.

But, my personal favorite is Open Range. Everyone loves to hate on Costner, but he and Duvall were at their best in that movie. It's perfectly cast, and is rich with character development that makes you invested in Boss and Charlie, and it makes the climax very powerful because of it and it doesn't emotionally pander or use stupid over-used devices to do it. It's a great movie, even with the "shotgun physics", which is a pretty minor flaw.

Agreed, 100%. Terribly written script.

Costner's 2nd best performance. "A Perfect World" being first.
