Ok. 80s best.

Lonesome Dove
Heaven’s Gate
The Grey Fox
The Long Riders

Also: Barbarosa; Gregorio Cortez; Young Guns 1 & 2; Pale Rider; Silverado; Cattle Annie & Little Britches

We don’t have more.
Heaven’s Gate has killed the genre, which was already in agony since 1976.

One genre from the 80s that in a way could be called “western” is the “post-apocalypse”-genre I think.

Haven’t seen that many films myself, but you probably know the films, Mad Max, Road Warrior, and the like. These were the first ones, from Australia, with then-unknown actor Mel Gibson :wink:

There where many films made during the 80s in this genre.

Have you seen many of these?

Enzo G. Castellari made “BRONX WARROIRS” “BRONX WARRIORS 2” & "THE NEW BARBARIANS"
Sergio Martino “2019 AFTER THE FALL OF NEW YORK” & "FISTS OF STEEL"
Even Lucio Fulci made one “ROME 2033, THE FIGHTER CENTURIONS”
