I have never seen a western. Tell me what's good. And nooooo silly replies please.
DON'T SHOOT A COWBOY BEFORE KICKING HIM OUT A SALOON PARTNER!
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
For A Few Dollars More is better bud tbqh
>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)
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.
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.
I usually like to point out 3 sub-genres in Westerns and then let people take their pick
How the West Was Won
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
Treasure of the Sierra Madre
True Grit (original)
The Wild Bunch
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
The Outlaw Josey Wales (doesn't really got the category but it deserves a mention
The Assassination of Jesse James
True Grit (reboot)
3:10 to Yuma (reboot)
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.
>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.
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
5:The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Rob Ford
fav movie of 2015
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,
Recently watched Breakheart Pass. I love that Eastern city slicker on trains in the West motif, or just being rich and not being gruff cowboys.
this (soundtrack is GOAT)
