Old cowboy movies

#51
By the way, cowboys and Aliens was taken from a "comic" Many of the scenes were straight from the comic, such as the one where he is staring straight up through the blasted roof. Some lot weaknesses, such as the alien interest in gold when there are other more useful minerals and far easier to get at in the asteroid belt, without having to deal with those pesky humans, BUT, a pretty good standalone movie. No need for a sequel, no need for any explanation. It fit.

I was never of a fan of the Spaghetti westerns, I always preferred the Duke in that era.
However, The Outlaw Josey Wales was an exceptional movie.
Pale Rider = Shane, both very good movies,
Some of the more modern one are pretty damn good as well.
I really liked Open Range
Silverado is well liked by a lot of folks.
If you want something tongue in cheek, Rustlers Rhapsody is a hoot. You have to pay attention.

While it's not a movie, it is real "cowboy" music. Google Dave Stamey and sit back and listen. Buy his stuff if you like true western genre. And of course, if you really like it, buy the music so Dave don't starve. He's a great poet as well, and was recently inducted into the Cowboy Poetry Hall of Fame. And yeah, he got his start as a real cowboy (buckaroo actually) and rode the ride, and walked the talk.

I totally overlooked Butch Cassidy. That's a great movie. Except for the really ghey bicycle scene. Though the safety bicycle was having a fad then... so it is historically-correct.

Great flick. Great post!

Yep can't leave that one out. I still haven't seen the new version "Butch and Sundance" I believe it is.

+1 for Joe Kidd + Outlaw Josey Whales
Valdez is Coming is a must. (Lancaster)
The Missouri Breaks (Nicholson)
The Appaloosa (1966) (Brando)

Agree with all..... a few I would recommend:
Culpepper Cattle Company
The Sacketts(t.v. series)
Centennial (t.v. series)
Rio Grande ( Ken Curtis AKA Festus) sings lead for Sons of the Pioneers. That show is when Duke first noticed Ken.
Comes a Horseman (if you can stomach Hanoi Jane, there's some good ropin' and gatherin' scenes...... and who doesn't like Richard Farnsworth.....

Anything Eastwood, Josey Wales was probably my favorite. He's an easy man to track, leaves dead men wherever he goes. Classic! The Lonesome Dove mini series was excellent, Robert Duvall was made for his part.

The Dark Valley
(Though not an old western, done very well.)

Otherwise:
Soldier Blue

I remember watching The Cowboys when I was a teen in the 90s. Everything my Father was trying to teach me clicked right there and then.

Then I took him to see Fight Club. I don't think we've had a single diagreement since...
