Phil did an awesome job with the alternative top 20 and since everybody loves rankings, I wish to start a new one. This will serve a different purpose.
In this thread you can name your top 10 or 20 favorite “Hidden Gem” SW’s. Obscure and little known movies that even most SW fans have not seen. The purpose of this is to give some recognition to those films that very few people have seen but you like anyway.
I think a good criteria to qualify is to only choose movies that have under 40 imdb votes, which is an imperfect but otherwise decent indicator of how well known or little known a movie is. It shouldn’t be too strict. If a movie has 41 votes you can still include it.
Once upon a time in the west has 58290 votes, while Killer Adios has a mere 20 votes. Most of the movies in both the official and alternative top 20 have well over a hundred imdb votes.
I think this list will be challenging as you will constantly have to go back and forth to see whether it qualifies. Remember its not based on imdb rating, but on the number of votes.
I’m also open to suggestions. Perhaps we can use another criteria. Or lower or raise the under 40 vote limit.
So I guess I’ll start off:
- Tequila Joe
- 32 Caliber Killer
- A Stranger at Paso Bravo
- Cry for Revenge/Dead Men Don’t Count
- Gunman Sent by God/Two Pistols for a Coward
- A Long Ride From Hell
- The Moment to Kill
- His Name Was Holy Ghost
- Reverend Colt
- Days of Violence
- The Silent Stranger
Thats it for now
