Been a long time since I have seen a good western. Actually, I don't think I have seen very many. A few of Clint Eastwood's, and James Garner's "Support your Local Sheriff" was an old favorite of mine

How about some recommendations of a good western to watch, something that will make me want to bust out my Ruger Blackhawk, and won't drive my wife nuts.

Also, needs to be something I could find at Blockbuster.

The Outlaw Josey Wales is always good

I've never been to a Blockbuster, so I don't know if they'll have it.

Pale Rider. It's pretty much a remake of Shane, but still very good.
Link Posted: 7/19/2008 3:44:35 PM EDT
I highly recommend "the jack bull" with john cusak and john goodman, it's a major sleeper in my opinion from about 10 years ago.

You could also go to wal mart where around here in the $5 section they've had true grit and a few other john wayne classics recently.

So far, this past week, we've watched 3 John Wayne classics:
The Searchers, The Cowboys, and True Grit (2X)

Have a bunch more waiting for me to pick up at the library come Monday.

I'll save The Shootist for the end of my John Waynefest, for obvious reasons.

While not a true Western, a good recent movie with a western feel is No Country for Old Men. Just giving you options since most of the good Westerns have been mentioned.

Here's a good MODERN Western. No single actions, but AR-15 and semi-auto pistols. But lots of horses and other western stuff . . . :
