The Mrs and I were watching Pale Rider the other day and got to thinking about what we liked about westerns that still remain as one of our shared movie themes. For example I am a major action and fantasy type fan - (i.e. cant wait for Clash of the Titans 04/02/2010) but still love my westerns. Maybe its due to the nights as a kid staying up late watching Western Marathons late at night with my old man (knowing full well my 8 year old butt would not be going to school in the morning if I went to bed at 0200 lol). So very well could be sentimental... There is still something refreshing to see the good guys go up against insurmountable odds and still go forward with a .45 and a Henry in hand. So here it is - what are your favorite westerns? TV, Movie, Series etc? Heres my list: The original Magnificent Seven with Yul Brynner is still a favorite movie. The original Lonesome Dove - one hell of a cast The original Ponderosa was a family favorite on Sundays before Kung Fu Theater started (again watching this with my old man and grandpa as an 8 yo kid).
