The Sons of Katie Elder is a favorite of mine.



"We may consent to be governed, but we will not be ruled." - Kevin D. Williamson, 2012

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Charles Triplett O’Ferrall of Virginia - In Congress, May 1, 1888

i don't think thats heresy at all

one of the few re-makes in history IMO that equals if not surpasses the original...

"I do not know this man...' Big Grin

so many great scenes in that

love this one:

I don't have anything new to add, I could watch nearly every movie listed again. My all time favorite is Pale Rider. It came out the same summer as Silverado, and I always think of them together.

I had forgotten about the Long Riders, great movie. My Dad named his bird dog Shane, so he could yell, "come back Shane!"




I have a few SIGs.

That's awesome! Big Grin

I named our Black Lab/Border Collie-mix General Sterling Price after John Wayne's cat in True Grit. Always thought Sterling would make a great name for a black dog.

A Fist Full of Dynamite, also known as Duck, You Sucker. James Coburn was the coolest.

Great list BB. Silverado was on this week, Unforgiven too, watched both, again. 3:10 to Yuma has also been on, Young Guns 1/2 last month. Pale Rider was a few months ago. I like Tombstone as much as anyone but I really enjoy Quaid in Wyatt Earp as well. You can kiss my rebel dick! I’m watching Hostiles this weekend on 4k disc, it’s my most recent western favorite. Fantastic film.

I have tried to watch Once Upon a Time in the West multiple times... does it ever pick up the pace?

I'm usually good with slow burn movies and don't need a ton of action, but this one goes the first 30 minutes of the movie in what could have easily been 5.

In general I love Westerns, though.
