My two favourite westerns have to be the original Django and Once Upon a Time in the West (which i still need to get on Blu-ray)
Not seen the Dollars Trilogy for so long now (but did get the remastered BD set recently) so i need to revist them
Yes Silverado is a good flick. I own that in a digibook.
I still need to watch the original Django. Once upon a time had a great transfer least the US version I bought some years ago. I dont know why but I'm finding so much charm lately in older westerns. Maybe its cause its a genre and period that I have seen very little on. All the modern or westerns from last 20 years or so I've seen. Least the big blockbuster ones. Really digging the older flicks (on blu only; im a snob) cause I'm looking at the movies and appreciating the film for more then just the acting and story. The scenery, sets, landscape etc.
I'm really stoked for Hateful Eight because of this. QT bringing back the long lost art form. So far cant find a cinema near me doing the 70mm. I may literally try and travel a few hours if I can find a theater. I wonder if there will end up being a list posted online of all the theaters that will have it. I guess any theater supposedly showing it on Christmas tho would have 70mm since the later release date is for digital.
Watching it at the New Beverly would be pretty damn cool ... eh? @Marina Blue
Wreck, they also have to have the 70mm film projectors and the hardware... reels, etc. This is film and most theaters scrapped their (35mm) film projectors long ago, most never had 70mm (film projectors). There are still a few in LA.
I agree with everything you just said! Check out the wesetern THE SALVATION with Mads Mikkelson and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Both of those guys were born to be in westerns! Also Lawrence Kasdan's WYATT EARP, APPALOOSA with Ed Harris & Viggo Mortensen.Never seen or heard of The Great Silence, will have to look it up.
A big fan of Tombstone, Open Range, Silverado to name a few also enjoyed the recent Jesse James with Brad Pit.
Not enough westerns nowadays.
McCabe is a Gambler who comes to a mining town and starts a brothel (and the townsfolk believe him to be a gunfighter). Mrs. Miller is a british woman who comes to town and becomes his business partner in the brothel because she makes it more profitable (since she knows how to make the Prostitutes happy).Not seen M&MM. (lazy), for a long time. I remember it as not the usual western for the times. Wasn't Beatty like a hobo or drunk?. Another to look up.
Thanks for mentioning it.
