    Hello there.
    So. I've finally got into the old Clint Eastwood westerns. They are some of the best movies ever and are classics in different ways. SW actually has similarities with these films and because of that I'm wondering if anyone here also is a fan.

    Not really a big western fan (couldn't get into it) but the movie Tombstone is one of my favorite movies. I also like how Back to the Future is influence by Client Eastwood films.

    I enjoy Spaghetti Westerns pretty well, particularly the Eastwood ones.

    Not a big fan of some of the others, like John Wayne.

    As the genre as a whole...

    Some of my favorites include the movie The Revenant and the video game Red Dead Redemption 2.

    I'm a huge western fan!

    My favorite western movies are:
    - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (the greatest movie of all time)
    - Unforgiven
    - 3:10 To Yuma
    - Once Upon A Time In The West
    - The Good The Bad The Weird (a Korean western)

    Because you are mentioning 'A Fistful Of Dollars' I highly recommend the originals or rather the movies which inspired the 'Dollar Trilogy':

    [​IMG]

    'Yojimbo' and 'Sanjuro'. Yojimbo is basically the same movie as 'For A Fistful of Dollars', but it was released 3 years prior. You can see Akira Kurosawa as the father of western movies.

    I actually don't care for that movie, I like gritty spaghetti westerns...but each to his own.

    I love the movies of Sergio Leone and his spaghetti westerns. Love these:

    - The Good the Bad and the Ugly (my fav)
    - For a Few Dollars More
    - Fistful of Dollars
    - Once Upon a Time in the West

    Tried to watch some of John Waynes movies but I never liked them.

    Western and good old Clint are an awesome Combo.
    But I have to admit my favourite Westerns are without him :eek:

    I like a few of the Western classics like The Outlaw Josey Wales, True Grit, and The Magnificent Seven, but I really tend to like some of the subgenres or twists on Westerns. For example, add a little swashbuckle in and you've got Zorro (I never met an adaption I didn't like); add some undercover intelligence to a little nascent steampunk and you've got Wild, Wild West (the TV show). But right now I'm loving the Star Wars version, The Mandalorian, and I'm hoping to get to watch Pedro Pascal in the sci-fi Western Prospect sometime this weekend if I can get an hour and a half to myself.

    I don't know if the Ballad of Buster Scruggs is too weird to be a western, but its in the west, so then yes, i like westerns.

    I voted yes because there are many good Westerns that I really enjoy, particularly the old Clint Eastwood films, yet it's not a genre that I consider myself a fan of for its own sake. My dad on the other hand you can prop in front of any old "shoot em up" and he's happy. While I might get the urge to watch "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" I never find myself saying "I'm in the mood for a Western". Which is kind of funny seeing how much Westerns have influenced many of my favorite science fiction movies. Part of it might be growing up in the Southwest, living in Texas and spending quite a bit of time in New Mexico and all the Western crap for the tourists/implants. Lately I've been curious about the rather large Western section in bookstores, I've heard there are some great novels in the genre but I don't really know where to start. The only author I know of is Louis L'Amour but I wouldn't even know where to start with just HIS stuff. It would appear the dude crapped out more books than V.C. Andrews and Dean Koontz combined.

    The Wild West history has always fascinated me and it's part of my culture as someone born and raised in south west texas. A border city with the rio grande river.

    Some of my ancestors were cowboys/vaqueros, ranchers and stuff in texas and mexico during that time.

    As for the genre in entertainment..Awesome!

    I can't recommend this boxed set highly enough.
