Its not the movie, its John himself. He to him, any western that doesn't portray the west as pilgrims in stagecoachs fighting the indians, is not a western. When he panned both High Noon and 3:10 to Yuma, he confirmed that...

I panned both High Noon and 3:10 to Yuma as well   >:D

It's not. It is a good western done by people who know how to do such things.

Dennis Hopper, Dean Martin, Lucien Ballard, Bernstein, Hathaway & the Duke - next to El Dorado it is for me the last of the really good ol' Hollywood western.

Don't forget the immortal Earl Holliman. He cancels the others all out  ;)

You could check out The Professionals, which bears far more similarities with TWB ;)

Eh I wouldn't compare a fun studio action western to one of the greatest movies ever made.

T.H., I do not see Fort Apache on your list. IMO it is one of the ten greatest AW's ever

As long as we don't find TWB on your list, one of the greatest westerns ever, and the greatest for me, don't bleat ... ;)

It's been years since I've seen it, but I would compare it more to The Mag 7 than The Wild Bunch. But I'll give it a watch at some point and maybe change my stance.

T.H., I do not see Fort Apache on your list. IMO it is one of the ten greatest AW's ever

I forgot to include it. It would be somewhere in the mid 30s. Good critique.

Aren't you a little too old to be acting like a teenager?

It is somewhere in the middle between both. But The Professionals is much better than Mag 7, in nearly every respect.

T.H, why did you chose 1962 instead of 1960 or 1965?

Interestingly none of your 50 films is beneath 6/10 on my entertainometer, I like them all to a certain degree.

You and I are much more receptive to the oddball cult westerns like Johnny Guitar, Forty Guns, etc.

I had '62 listed because Liberty Valance and Ride the High Country are the last great old school Hollywood westerns imo. I guess '63 might be a better cutoff because Fistful came out in '64. I don't really have a strong opinion on X year being the end of the classic hollywood western though.
