What is your top five? The WB DVD I have is widescreen,DD 5.1 ,original directors cut dated 1997. Seems like there is a better version out there . Do not know. My List( this list is not the best DVD cut but the best Western MOVIE....


The Wild Bunch-The great array of actors and acting cinches this one.

Once Upon a Time in the West- Fall 2003 release -spectacular

Fistful of Dollars

Fistful of Dynamite- just released Korean ,153 minutes in English region 3

Pale Rider and Good B and U are so good that it is really hard to do a top 5 on Westerns. I agree those two are great.

How's about a top 10 list instead?

In order:

1) Unforgiven (1992)

2) Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

3) Dances With Wolves (1990)

4) High Noon (1952)

5) The Wild Bunch (1969)

6) The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)

7) The Magnificent Seven (1960) this is a remake of an even better film, "Seven Samurai"

8) The Ox-Bow Incident (1943)

9) Open Range (2002)

10) The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962)


I would place Seven Samurai at number two if you will allow it as a western. Akira Kurosawa liked the Western genre a great deal and it shows in this film.


And just because it's a fun film: :D

11) The Cowboys (1971)


Edit: I would put Giant at number 4 if we can consider it a "Western" but to me, it's more of a "Drama".

I like these threads every year or so because I get to Change my mind.


1. The Cowboys

2. The Wild Bunch

3. The Shootist (With budding director "Opie" playing the kid, not directing)

4. Silverado (ok a pop-western, but brought the genre back from "the dustbin.")

5. Open Range (Duvall)
