Including the remake of 3:10 to Yuma and Eastwood's The Unforgiven on any list of the best westerns is horsepucky.  I may have included The Magnificent Seven once, but my views on it have evolved over the years. I wouldn't even consider it now. Nor would I include The Good the Bad and the Ugly, which is superior cinema, and I'm fond of it, but it's not one of the best westerns. Certainly it is one of the top spaghetti westerns. The other films are fine, however.

Putting Once Upon a Time In the West in the numero uno slot is fair and deserved under certain criteria.

I think the Raindrops scene is very good. I like the song, I like the directing of the scene, and I like the way it is included in the film's narrative.

What I don't like meanwhile that much is that there are too much similar dialogues and jokes about the laziness of our heroes, which surely were part of the film's success back then, and which were then a reflection of the new thinking of the 68 generation.

It was one of my favourite westerns for many years, it has paled a bit now, but is still one of the 30 best imo.

For me, It takes me right out of the Western and into the 60's  O0

Has anybody seen Tears of the Black Tiger?

I saw it several years ago, probably around when it came out.

I remember the first half at least being a quirky, comedic Thai homage to the Spaghetti Western with some very obvious Leone citations.

The Great Silence isn't even Corbucchi's best film.

Why bother making the distinction between "Western" and "Spaghetti Western"?

It's my favorite of his.

I prefer Il mercenario, but only for a tiny little bit.

What's your favourite Groggy?

Eastwood's The Unforgiven
It's actually called just Unforgiven. The Unforgiven is an Audrey Hepburn picture.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

I was going to point that out but I figured Dick wouldn't be amused.

I know, a minor slip late at night.
The Unforgiven (1960) is a John Huston film and a Burt Lancaster picture, faithfully adapted from an historical novel written by an acclaimed Texas author who wrote about what he knew.
