    What are your favorite westerns?

    I never saw all of Deadwood, but the series was intriguing.

    Aside from that I enjoy some of the more modern westerns, 3:10 to Yuma, True Grit, and Seraphim Falls.

    I know this will be blasphemy, but I enjoyed the new True Grit quite a bit more than the old one. Of course I saw the new one before the old one so...

    I liked both versions. I did see the original first, and am always skeptical of remakes, but yes Bridges did do a really good job.

    The Magnificent Seven is one of my favorite movies of all time. It's based on Seven Samurai, which is my second favorite movie ever.

    While we are talking about movies, I thought I would add a couple that aren't Westerns. My family has a few traditions that we do:

    St. Patrick's Day - "The Quiet Man"
    Labor Day - "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World"
    The Holidays - "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Dumb and Dumber"
    New Years Day - "Rio Bravo" and "McClintock"
