Top Ten Movies by Genre: Westerns

Last Update for Westerns:

I have to go work on a few things tomorrow so Thomas Walker Esq's post on 3/17 12:38 PM CDT is the last one to get the votes in. Truth be told, there were a bunch of ties - so I'm going with the top 13 movies receiving the most votes (which represents a top 6 with ties).

1T) The Good the Bad and the Ugly & Unforgiven

2) The Outlaw Josey Wales

3) Tombstone

4T) True Grit & 3:10 to Yuma 

5T) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid & Dances with Wolves (Way to hang tough Costner!)

6T) Lonesome Dove, High Noon, Open Range, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance & The Searchers


Thanks to those submitting their favorites. Next Monday we'll kick off the Top Ten Horror Movies.

Since I messd up the first time and didn't think things through, I wanted to right the ship and focus this more on Top Ten Movies by Genre. I'll do a new one each Monday. The Genres I plan to cover are:

Western, Horror, Sci-Fi, Sports, Drama, Action, History, War (yes they are part of history, but there are so many it deserves to stand alone), Comedy and Chick Flicks.

Now on to Westerns! Here are my top ten:

1) Tombstone: Didn't see Wyatt Earp, but plan to after comments from the last movie thread.

2) 3:10 to Yuma: The remake with Russell Crowe as I didn't see the original

3) Pale Rider: Clint Eastwood

4) Open Range: Now how many Duvall films can I find for this genre?

5) Appaloosa: Ed Harris, Viggo Mortensen, Jeremy Irons (strong cast, highly recommend)

6) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid: Robert Redford and Paul Newman - oldy but goody

7) Unforgiven: Another one for Clint Eastwood (of course he and John Wayne could make a great top 50)

8) Silverado: starring a YOUNG Kevin Costner

9) The Outlaw Josey Wales: Clint Eastwood

10) Dances with Wolves: Kevin Costner

There are several I need to see: True Grit, The Magnificent Seven and a TON of John Wayne movies. I look forward to your recommendations.
