Aside of "Outlaw Josey Wales", I also really like Pale Rider.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Gunfreak Supporting Member of TMP wonders...

Now the end of 60s saw the end of the classic western (for the most part); 70-00 saw some more spaghetti westerns and new American-type westerns.

So instead of saying top 5 all-time westerns, let's put the limit at 1970 and forwards.

Mine would be:
  1. Tombstone - just love all about it, the color the story, actors etc.
  2. Silverado - this is actually the last classic western, and it was made 15 years after the end of the classic western era, you half expect it to be in black-and-white, very fun film in all aspects.
  3. Unforgiven - a movie all about the act of murder, and uses the western as a stage for it.
  4. Open Range - great lead up and all ends in one hell of a firefight.
  5. Appaloosa - a mix of tombstone and classic westerns, great, violent and quick firefights, if you don't pay attention, it's all over.

So what's your top 5 after 1970?
