  Seven Men from Now was really good.  Randolph Scott is perfectly cast, and Lee Marvin is great in a role where you never really know which side he's on.  Definitely worth a watch.

I'll check it out if I ever get the chance.

wow so nobody has posted here since 2006!

I just saw the movie on TCM; it was my second viewing. and my opinion is the same as the first time: i really don't agree with all the fuss about this being a great Western. Yeah, maybe it was revolutionary in its time for its adult themes or whatever, but for me this is a 7/10.

Stewart delivers a terrific performance. As always.

I like it because the story develops, it's not a single situation strung out over 90 minutes. I mean, by the time Dan Duryea shows up, the film is nearly two thirds over.

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

This is a good W, albeit somewhat short of excellent. The episodic nature however, starts weighting by the time of the final act. They kinda try to push forth both the characters and the twists til the very end, which doesn't quite do it for me. It is overall good, but for me it's not great as its reputation implies. I like all the performances, Geer included.


7.7/10

This is a good western.  It had plenty of action thru out the movie. The plot was tight and never tried to get too complex. On the surface, ( spoiler alert) changes in ownership of the rifle would seem implausible, but not really. I can see something like that really happening back during those days.  This and The Man from Laramie are probably my favorite James Stewart westerns...
