Everybody loves a good Western. Except people who don’t like Westerns. The list isn’t for them. It’s for those that dooooo-eee-oooo-eee-oooooo-wah-wah-waaaaaaaaah…

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (1966)

An undisputed classic, and the origin of that tune we all sing when are about to pretend to have a gun battle with someone.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (1948)

http://youtu.be/vGpvO8JabEc
“I don’t have to show you any stinkin’ badges!”

True Grit (2010)

http://youtu.be/vXCmUEaPQPM
A masterful reimagining of the original (possibly better), with a breakout performance by Hailee Steinfeld. Coen Brothers get it right again.

Unforgiven (1992)

Clint Eastwood being so brutally badass is always awesome. Also, Gene Hackman and Morgan Freeman are in it.

A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

http://youtu.be/5UytSgHWsZs
We can thank this Clint Eastwood classic for the spaghetti western. So badass.

Shane (1953)

Alan Ladd will never come back…

Django Unchained (2012)

http://youtu.be/eUdM9vrCbow
A neverending onslaught of every kind of human brutality. Also, Leonardo DiCaprio is terrifying.

High Noon (1952)

http://youtu.be/SkNu4-sSglY
Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly and that goddamned noon train.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid (1969)

http://youtu.be/501Afs54cso
Paul Newman and Robert Redford definitely made it out of there alive.

Firefly (2002)

http://youtu.be/JY3u7bB7dZk
Joss Whedon’s imaginative, beautiful take on what if westerns and science fiction had a brutal love baby.
