Cowboys, gun fights, wild chases, saloon throw downs…there really is nothing like a good Western movie to bring out your tough side.

Posted on

1. THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

The last of Sergio Leone’s Dollars trilogy, we witness Clint Eastwood searching the Old West for lost Confederate gold and engaging in an epic three-way, five-minute ultimate showdown in a graveyard.

2. THE SEARCHERS

John Ford’s 1956 film portrays one of Hollywood’s ultimate Cowboys, John Wayne, as a man desperately trying to find his kidnapped niece. This film pushed past the classic good guy/ bad guy scenario and introduced much more complex characters.

3. UNFORGIVEN

This 1992 Clint Eastwood film includes incredible performances, great cinematography, and a spellbinding score…and more of Clint Eastwood being the ultimate cool rebel.

4. TOMBSTONE

Filled with classic Western banter, Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday battle it out with the cowboys in the O.K. Corral. This epic Western culminates to a groundbreaking gunfight scene which you don't want to miss!

5. THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE

Another great John Ford and John Wayne collaboration. This 1962 film delivers a different look at the Western Myth as well as the classic “print the legend” line.

6. 3:10 TO YUMA

James Mangold’s 2007 remake of the classic 1957 film is a fresh take on the traditional hero/villain plot. The remake also stars some of Hollywood’s hottest cowboys including Russell Crowe, Christian Bale, Logan Lerman, Dallas Roberts, and Ben Foster, making it well worth the watch to boot.

7. BONE TOMAHAWK

Kurt Russell returns to the Western genre as Sheriff Hunt in BONE TOMAHAWK. Cannibal savages kidnap settlers from the small town of Bright Hope, and Sheriff Hunt and his unlikely team of gunslingers embark on a terrifying rescue mission to bring them home. Armed with clever wordplay, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins go along for the ride in this gritty and brutal adventure.

8. DANCES WITH WOLVES

This epic, Oscar winning film stars Kevin Costner as a former Civil War soldier, John Dunbar, who makes a new life for himself on the frontier and is eventually welcomed into a neighboring Native American tribe and given the name “Dances with Wolves”.

9. FORSAKEN

Kiefer and Donald Sutherland team up as a former gunslinger and his estranged father facing off against a ruthless businessman and his gang of thugs. This is the first time that Kiefer and Donald have teamed up as a father-and-son duo on screen and it's a real treat to watch! FORSAKEN will be available in theaters, VOD and iTunes on February 19th.

10. DJANGO UNCHAINED

Quentin Tarantino’s 2012 film includes iconic performances from a stellar cast including Jamie Foxx as a former slave hunting down the South’s most wanted criminals and the wicked Leonardo DiCaprio as a suspicious plantation owner.
