Why doesn't anybody make great Westerns anymore?
The last great one was Unforgiven, over 20 years ago.
It was only
>had an amazing soundtrack
But none of that matters if it's a little too popular. Oh and there's a black main character, c-c-cuck!
Unforgiven is boring garbage. Pic related is the best Western of the last 30 years.
Tombstone is fun, but you're fucking retarded if you think its better than Unforgiven
Bone Tomahawk, The Revenant, Hateful 8
It was 2015, anon

It's good you liked it, but some people don't. Not because of the race stuff but because taste is subjective anon, and that's ok. Django as a character felt really thin, not much there. Waltz's character too was a little too much...Waltz, a lesser Landa with his idiosyncrasies. The pacing was strangely off in a number of places, most glaringly the QT cameo. There was surprisingly little heart in the journey to Broomhilda, which would have helped. Jackie and the Bride's stories were more endearingly told. Leo was great, felt like alive. The hip hop on the soundtrack was out of place too.
Fun? A little. But it's far grittier than Unforgiven. Also things actually happen in Tombstone, like shootouts, manhunts, character development. And it's a true story.
What happens in Unforgiven again? Oh yeah, Gene Hackman builds a shitty house for half of it and Clint Eastwood is getting too old for this shit in the other half.
People like the IDEA of Unforgiven, but it's very poorly executed.
3:10 to Yuma and True Grit were alright. You can't really come up with a great western setpiece anymore because most of it will feel too cliché and what doesn't feel cliché will seem like you're deliberately going out of your way to avoid a trope.
I do agree with the hip-hop being out of place, as well as the cameo, but I suppose the rest is subjective.
You're right about Django vs the Bride though, she is a lot more endearing and interesting as a character. I still feel it is a good western.
I was surprised at how much I liked appaloosa. Ed Harris is so fucking underrated.
Does Ed Harris age? I was watching the mini series of The Stand (total shit BTW) and he plays the general trying to contain the virus. That shit was 23 years ago and he looks the same
We need an adaptation of Warlock.
Slow West came out last year and is fantastic, check it out.
>The the and the good bad ugly
What a shitty title
was the Hateful Eight any good?
i'm waiting for it to be released in my country since i want it to watch at the theatre, i expected a bit more discussion about it here
"il buono, il brutto, il cattivo" sounds better
