Top 10 - Westerns

With the first Western that I'm actually been excited about, Django Unchained, getting released in cinemas this year I decided it was time to throw down my list of top Westerns of all time! As expected Clint dominates. I grew up on his films (Luckily my dad was a massive fan) and still haven't seen anyone that can top his skills with a six shooter.

10. Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid

9. Lonesome Dove - Not as popular as the rest of the films on this list, probably because it's a 4 hour long made for TV miniseries. Bobby Duvall is really badass for an old timer.

1. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly- The first and still best Western I've ever experienced. Holds up incredibly well - the final 3-way shootout may very well be my favorite scene put to film.
