Certainly more fun to watch than any of the others!

Try also:

The Big Country (best theme of any western!)
High Noon
The Man from Laramie
True Grit
Shane

Beat me to it! LOL

In that same vein:

Support your local sherriff

I have seen Magnificent Seven and Rio Bravo and they are okay. I am not much for Westerns, so that is saying something.

Ummm, the best western Epic Films I've ever seen is: "Lonesome Dove"

It's something like 10 hours long, but it's just so good. I recommend it if you have the time to watch it.

I really liked the modern version of 3:10 to Yuma--although I didn't see the original.

IMHO, absolutely the best Western ever. Great original story by Dorothy Johnson, great screenplay great cast:

John Wayne
James Stewart
Vera myles
Edmund O'Brien
Andy Devine
Lee Marvin
John Carradine
Woody Stode
Strother Martin

Also had a terrific theme song (lyrics: Burt Bacharach, sung by Gene Pitney) that ironically was not used in the original release of the movie itself. Lyrics: http://www.lyricsdepot.com/gene-pitn.../man-who-shot-liberty-valance.html

My all time favorite western movie. I never get tired of it. I have been watching it since I was about 10 and I still love it!

Magnificent Seven

My second favorite western film!

I also like "Big Jake" (1971), which is interesting because it takes place in 1909, long after what most would consider the "wild west" was over. However things were still a bit different in the southwest.

I like "Eldorado" (1966) too, it isn't the bast film ever, but I still enjoy it.

"Sergeant Rutledge" (1960) is a fantasic film too. It has a lot of the same people that are in all the John Ford films with the exception of John Wayne.

Definitely one of the best. Val Kilmer should have gotten an Oscar

Yeah, I'll second that one. The "good guys" weren't all that good and the "bad guy" was a sheriff actually just trying to do his job. Lots of shades of grey in this one, not the same old plot. Probably my favorite western of all time and in my top five regardless of genre
