I have never seen a western. Tell me what's good. And nooooo silly replies please.
>>
The Ridiculous Six
>>
the only good western is Once Upon a Time in the West
>>
Hateful Eight
>>
The magnificent 7
>>
Django Unchained
>>
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is pretty much perfect
>>
The Good, The Bad and The Weird is a supreme Korean action movie which has a western vibe because of the location and historical setting.
>>

Watch outlaw josey wales for all the mythology of the virtuous, perfect cowboy and then immediately watch unforgiven for a fucking rug pulling of all that shit
>>
>>64639143
This and any clint Eastwood movie, anything with John Wayne....it's actually just better to watch all westerns.

oops I thought you were asking what's good about westerns
>>
>>64639143
Unironically my favourite film
>>
>>64636323
Boss Nigger
>>
The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

It's the ONLY western that's watchable for me. And it's actually decent.
>>
>>
>>64639467
Guilty pleasure
>>
>>64636323
Just watch Django Unchained
No, Im serious

It's like a 'best of' westerns, mixing traditional westerns and spaghetti westerns and then throwing in racial issues so Tarantino could work the word 'nigger' into the script

It's by far not the best western, but it'll let you know if you like the genre

>>64639143
For A Few Dollars More is better bud tbqh

The Eligible Eleven

2015 movie Slow West with Fassbender
Unforgiven (asian remake is good too)
3:10 to Yuma
True Grit
and everything with Eastwood and Wayne
>>
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y8NdIxTerFM
>>
The Sanctimonious Seventeen
>>
Unforgiven is a masterpiece
>>
3:10 to Yuma with entertainment and dubsguy was pretty good
>>
Red Sun, Charles Bronson cowboy films and they Dollars Trilogy
>>
>>64639143
Basically watch this and then watch a John Wayne western (I recommend the original True Grit) and you should have a pretty good idea of how westerns work.
>>
>All westerns directed by Sergio Leone (if you really want one in particular to start with, go with The Good the Bad and the Ugly, but doing them in release order is fine)
>All westerns directed by John Ford (especially The Searchers and The man who shot Liberty Valance)
>Unforgiven, High Plains Drifter, The Outlaw Josey Wales
>True Grit, 3:10 to Yuma (remakes and originals)
>Magnificient Seven

In case its not enough, basically everything with John Wayne or Clint Eastwood (that isn't already listed) is a safe bet.

I still wear this shirt and get asked about it, for some reason people like the shirt and don't remember the movie. I also like the shirt and don't remember the movie.

Tombstone

>>64636323
Would CIA make the greatest wild west character of all time?
>>
>>64639517
Shit tier
>>
>>64639143
>perfect

Why do the characters voices change?

Why are some clearly speaking English and others are dubbed?

Product of its time, just how these movies were made, etc., but it's really jarring.
>>
>>64636323
I usually like to point out 3 sub-genres in Westerns and then let people take their pick

>Classic Western
Rio Bravo
The Searchers
Shane
The Gunslinger
How the West Was Won
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
High Noon
Stage Coach
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
True Grit (original)
The Wild Bunch

>Spaghetti Westerns
The Good the Bad and the Ugly
Fistful of Dollars
For a Few Dollars More
Once Upon a Time in the West
Fistful of Dynamite
My Name is Nobody
The Great Silence
Django

>Modern(ish) Westerns
The Outlaw Josey Wales (doesn't really got the category but it deserves a mention
Unforgiven
Tombstone
Lonesome Dove
The Assassination of Jesse James
True Grit (reboot)
3:10 to Yuma (reboot)
Apaloosa

That's just a sort of starter pack, there are plenty of other great ones but that should give you an idea of what kind of Western you like; which directors you might enjoy, or which actors you might enjoy.
>>
>>64640749
>Why are some clearly speaking English and others are dubbed?

Because they hired lots of Spanish/Italian people for secondary roles, and they can't speak English for shit. Keep it mind that it's an Italian movie, shot in Spain. We were simply lucky to have Clint, Lee Van Cleef and Wallach to dub themselves in English.

Also Italy is famous for dubbing almost all their movies (even those where everybody speaks Italian) because of the shit sound in their studios, and the fact that the crew typically talks during shooting.
>>
>>64640866

Solid list, I can get behind this.
>>
>>64636323
My top 5 favorite Westerns are

1:The Good the Bad and the Ugly
(very close second)
2:Once Upon a Time in the West
3:High Noon
4:The Searchers
5:The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Rob Ford
>>
Whatever you do, watch Unforgiven at the end of the list. It's an incredible film, but it completely and utterly deconstructs the genre.
>>
Young Guns
Young Guns II
>>
>>64637836
>implying The Dollars trilogy and Duck, You Sucker are bad
Shit taste.

Jeremiah Johnson.

Because it would have created a ton of /tv/ memes if it had come out in the age of 4chan.

Finished watching the Quick and the Dead earlier. Wasn't as bad as I expected.
>>
>>64644315
>directed by Sydney Pollack

Is this movie unironically good? It was made by some very talented people.
>>
>>64636323
A Million Ways to Die in the West.

>>64644273

Quigley down under is action, comedy

Also, some useless trivia for you all. Niggardly has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the word nigger.

It was in use before the slur even came along.

I love using it and watching black peoples reactions,

Westworld, sort of. Good for a variety of reasons.

This came out in 1924, one year before the *first* samurai movie.

And this came out in 1903 and also that frontier novels became popular in the 1800s

Yeah, I think that one's underrated as well. Great cast, premise and production (if a little flashy for a western). Thoroughly enjoyed it.
