Rub me the wrong way, and I'll go off in your face

Strongly disagree. It's not like every single Western will be horrible, there would be some great ones, and some that are at least good as entertainment. There have been a lot of crap Westerns like "American Outlaws" made under the current "system" of minimal production anyway, so I'm sure what your point is?

I do think that there's no guarantee that this film will be a hit (but I've said this before), "American Outlaws" was heavily promoted when it first came out and it completely tanked. I also remember seeing a lot of ads for "Open Range".


American Outlaws was exactly what I was thinking when I said "pg-13 tom foolery" and you can expect more "American Outlaws" if "3:10 to Yuma" is a mega hit (which i doubt it will be).

And your memory doesn't serve you well:
I remember seeing a few trailers for "American Outlaws" but it wasn't heavily advertised.
"Open Range" less so.

Don't know about you but I'm perfectly happy with the amount of good westerns we've gotten over the past 10 years.

Do you know how many westerns were made between 1950 to 1970?
Plenty.
How many are considered classics (or what you would consider "good") today?
Not many.
Now fast forward to the present.
5 a year? From the current quality the studios piss out?
No thanks.

I said how many "they" consider classics or good movies.
Not what I would consider classic.

 By their standard the only westerns that were any good between those years were either American or Leone movies.

That narrows it down to like 25 titles.

Let's not forget Anthony Mann

Bend Of The River
The Naked Spur
The Far Country
The Man From Laramie


And also films like The Professionals, Butch Cassidy (questionable for a few members), Little Big Man, Bad Day at Black Rock, and Johnny Guitar.

So far that is a mere 19.

Kinda shabby for a 20 year span.
My list is much more generous, of course most would consider the titles "shit" without actually watching them.

19 films over a 20 year span.  That's almost a classic per year.

You said in a recent post you would "rather have 1 classic every ten years than ten shitty ones every two years."

That means you would be satisfied if there were only 2 classics in a twenty year span.


P.S. I win.

And you also have to take into consideration the quality of western the execs will be greenlighting today.

If you think we have some High Noons, Ride The High Countries and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valances on the way, you're in for a big surprise.


P.S. This is not a competition.

How would you know if the films never get made in the first place.

P.S. I still win.

With the current crap we have to put up with, yes, that is all I can hope for.
