the ‘western’ list is taking shape. [another day, another movie.]

Thanks to some internal conversations, and to the helpful feedback from readers, the list of Westerns is starting to look pretty good. We are actually getting to a point pretty quickly where I will either have to stretch Westerns out to a full month, or else split Westerns into two different marathons (or whatever you call a marathon when it takes place daily, instead of all at once).

There are some which are still up in the air. So far, here is the list of definite films included:

  1. Unforgiven
  2. The Magnificent Seven
  3. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  4. The Searchers
  5. Hang ‘Em High
  6. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
  7. High Plains Drifter
  8. Blazing Saddles
  9. High Noon
  10. Tombstone
  11. 3:10 to Yuma
  12. Firefly marathon, followed by Serenity

I also think that after this whole thing is over, I will use this opportunity to start watching Deadwood.

Any votes one way or the other?

  1. When you watch the magnificent seven be sure to poke around the dvd and see if you can find some of the original trailers for it in the special features. We watched this movie 2 or 3 years ago and are still making jokes about it . . .
