    Clearly, not the best, but some are certainly the silliest. (I love silly westerns).

    FWIW, Unforgiven got remade as an Eastern.
    Back in 2013, it was re-imagined as a samurai saga by Sang-il Lee, with Ken Watanabe playing the Eastwood role.

    Kind of fitting, in an ironic way, given that Eastwood became world famous doing an Italian remake of a classic Japanese samurai flick...

    Sadly, I have been unable to find it streaming anywhere...

    Cemetery Without Crosses (1969)
    Directed by and starring Robert Hossein, it is a nihilistic saturated tale of revenge.

    ...if you meet Sartana, Pray For Your Death (1968)
    Borrowing heavily from Leone's Dollars Trillogy, this film spawned 4 sequels. It actually has enough original flair to stand on it's own, too.


    If I were compiling a "Top 10 Spaghetti Westerns" list, these would definitely be on it...
    Watched cemetery without crosses. Didnt hold my attention, but I feel I owe it another chance.

    Tried to find "if you meet sartana, pray for your death" but prime popped up the 2nd one(?). Really liked this one. And shit now it shows up. Guess I'm gonna smoke another and watch the 1st one. Appreciate your recs dookey.

    CW/OC is kind of an anti-spaghetti in a way. It was more like a French New Wave Western.


    As for the official Sartana films, the order is:
    ...If You Meet Sartana, Pray For Your Death (1968)
    I Am Sartana, Your Angel Of Death (1969)
    Have A Good Funeral, My Friend...Sartana Will Pay (1970)
    Light The Fuse...Sartana Is Coming (1970)
    I Am Sartana, Trade Your Guns For A Coffin (1972)

    I am making my way through them and hoping that they are all as solid as the first one.

    Awesome. It was "I am Sartana, your angel of death" that I first watched. Really liked the way it was shot. Watching the 1st now. Very Eastwood-esque.

    All of the obvious have already been named, so... I know it's a modern western, but I'm a fan of Hell or High Water.

    Good call. Captain Kirk was pretty good in that. We should add Extreme Prejudice to the Modern Westerns list.

    I regret not listing any Randolph Scott movies other than Ride the High Country, so I revised my Honorable Mentions to include "any western with Randolph Scott."

    Re Shane: Any other mags read the book Shane by Jack Schaefer? It's by a mile my favorite western novel and far better than the movie. After you've read the book, you'll laugh at the idea of 5'5" pencil-neck Alan Ladd playing the protagonist.

    IMHO there have not been many original (and certainly very few memorable) westerns made post Unforgiven. We've gotten a lot of remakes (3:10 to Yuma, The Magnificent 7) and tons of direct-to-video (check out Prime and Redbox as both are teeming with low-budget Westerns), but again very few original, creative, and captivating new westerns.
    This is one:

    SLOW WEST
    Came out in 2015.
    Written and directed by John Maclean (founding member of great Scottish band The Beta Band, whom if you have never checked out I highly recommend).
    Starring Michael Fassbender.
    It was one of my favorite films of that year, regardless of genre.

    Top 10 Westerns In No Particular Order...

    Does Breaker Morant count as a western? I donít care, I like it. Good movie either way.

    Edit:

    Havenít scrolled through the list and presumably already mentioned , but Little Big Man is one of my all time faves. Great, great movie and definitely a western. Anytime I pass it on the rerun channel it is impossible for me not to get sucked in. Highly recommended. Faye Dunaway at peak hotness, Richard Mulligan as an absolute bonkers Custer, Chief Dan George, and lil Dusty Hoffman. Still relevant and holds up imo.

    that describes the western genre. Lots of bad repetitive shit, a few gems.

    Top 10 Westerns In No Particular Order...

    Buster Scruggs was pretty good, more of a bunch of scenes than a movie, but it felt less formulaic regardless. I think a whole movie about just buster would be pretty compelling. Overall though pretty good and fresher than most

    Steve Mcqueen made a rodeo-contemporary-western in the 60s or 70s that was pretty good. I couldnít remember and Itís been bugging me for a while so I looked it up. It was called Junior Bonner. Itís not a shoot em up but itís worth watching if you come across it.
