    I'm starting to get into western movies, and am looking for the "must see" titles. From the titles that I remember, I've seen:

    - Deadwood
    - The Good, The Bad & The Ugly
    - Tombstone
    - 3:10 To Yuma (remake)
    - Unforgiven

    I've seen a few others, but I can't recall the names. I would prefer westerns with more action, but am open to anything.

    You've got a good list sitting there so far
    :coold:

    The Good The Bad and The Ugly, they just don't make movies like that anymore :bowdown:

    I'll try to find some others.

    Not as awesome as The Good the Bad and the Ugly, but Fistfull of Dollars and For a Few Dollars More were great too.

    That's the only one that I haven't seen, and am waiting on it from Netflix. Is it better than the other 3?

    Nah. It's good but 3:10 and Open Range are the two best on the list.

    Ride The High Country...an early Peckinpah, not as violent as The Wild Bunch or un-subtle as Pat Garret, but a great take on fading cowboys in the receeding West. I also really liked The Hi-Lo Country, in spite of the pointless voice over. And The Man Who Shot Liberty West is the all-encompassing self-referential Ford Western.

    I know it was already listed, but I finally saw Tombstone in its entirety a couple of months ago. It definitely is one of my favorite Westerns.
