    A genre I've always been entirely uninterested in. I've seen one, maybe two westerns in my life, and I couldn't tell you what they were. Unless you count Blazing Saddles.

    Probably my favorite genre.

    1. Unforgiven
    2. The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance
    3. Rio Bravo
    4. The Wild Bunch
    5. The Searchers
    6. Red River
    7. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
    8. High Plains Drifter
    9. Tombstone
    10. Open Range

    I'm probably forgetting some, and pretty much everything within the 2-7 range is interchangable, that's just the order I was feeling at the time.

    I'm really surprised that aside from Jim's extra large list, I'm the only one that put High Noon on their list. Its easily my favorite classic western.

    I thought about it Brook, but I’ve not seen it in so long, that I decided to let it go this time.
