What did all you Western fans think of "Down in the Valley"?, which was a pretty surreal take on someone stuck in the idea that they're in a Western.

Appaloosa has some of the best dialogue of any movie I have seen in some time and the characters are unique and superbly portrayed.

This film is a real sleeper.

Saw Appaloosa in the movies and thought it was pretty good. I was a little suprised when I first saw Jeremy Irons was casted but as usual he pulled it off and was good.

It also had a good script with some funny lines thrown in every now and then.

It was like Harris watched the Jesse James movie and fell in love with all the transitional scenes and decided he'd make a movie with just that...and some pretty broad comedy.

I read the DVD cover for Appaloosa the other day. It looks good and I'll have to watch it sometime. I had never heard of the movie before the DVD was released...

I disagree. It was pretty lame on some stereotypes (all people from Wyoming are poor. All people from Texas are trashy) and you didn't see the "love" between the two men behind them meeting every few years to screw each other and the fact that they couldn't commit to their wives. There was nothing redeeming about their relationship that the great love stories, even the tragic ones, engender. I thought the wives were the best actors in the whole move. Ledger was pretty good, but I didn't see anything between the protagonists to create a beautiful redeemable love. In fact the Jake Gyllenhaal's character ends up cheating on Ennis. There wasn't a strong enough antagonist to motivate the storyline, either. The footage is gorgeous with some really epic looking shots, but I need more than pretty landscapes or Attack of the Clones would be 4 stars to me. I just don't get why people liked it. I think a lot of it was hype for it being a "gay" movie.

How about 3:10 to Yuma? There's a western for ya.

Viggo and Ed Harris? Can't miss. I'm going to see that one this weekend. Viggo has done some great films. Check out Eastern Promises if you want to see the scariest film fight of all time. He's also slated to play the father in Ridley Scott's upcoming version of Cormac McCarthy's The Road.

Lonesome Dove was the best Western ever. Augustus McRae and Woodrow Call. Doesn't get any better than that. "Hell of a vision."

A Man Called Horse was one of the best I can remember. I really liked DanceswithWolves as well.

Hmm, a preacher that don't talk religion? My kinda Preacher!

I figure your fav is gonna depend on your tastes, but I like Unforgiven and Open Range for the best "recent" westerns.

My favorite western is High Noon. It's so characteristically un-western. No pretty landscapes. No rolling mountains. It's really a morality play. It also makes me cry every time I watch it. Also, a young Grace Kelly is always a plus.

I thought "Unforgiven" was fabulous. Eastwood said it was one of his favorites.

How can you leave out "John Wayne and the Cowboys"? Or, and of the Clint Eastwood spaghetti Westerns? OT, I just went to Gran Torino-if you are an Eastwood fan (and like his sneer) you'll love it-
