[quote=“Phil H, post:8, topic:536”]I think the nineties actually offered some very good westerns and for a while there it seemed like the genre was making a real comeback. ‘Unforgiven’ is, for me, one of the all time great westerns and although I wouldn’t make that claim for ‘Dances with Wolves’ it was still a good picture. I think most have already been mentioned here but ‘Deadman’, ‘Wild Bill’, ‘Tombstone’, ‘Silent Tongue’ and ’ Ballad of Little Jo’ are all worth a watch from this decade.
Others not mentioned which are also worth a watch are:
The Jack Bull
Into the Badlands (an interesting mix of western and supernatural)
Dollar for the Dead (What’s your opinions of this “tribute to Leone”?)
Young Guns II[/quote]
I didn’t care much for The Jack Bull, found it too dramatic, too many cliches and too long.
Buffalo Soldiers is not a western! At least, not the Joaquin Phoenix one. That’s a fun movie though.
Dollar for the Dead. I liked it, sort of. It’s not great, but it doesn’t pretend to be.
I liked both the Young Guns, for different reasons. The first one is more of a Hollywood thing though.
