Default Best Western's of All Time?

So I'm the mood for westerns as of late, but I haven't seen too many. What are some good western's out there that everyone should watch? I've seen Tombstone (many times), 3:10 to Yuma, The Good the Bad and the Ugly, Unforgiven, Shadowheart, and a number of ones with John Wayne.

What else do I need to watch? I've heard The Magnificent Seven and Lonesome Dove are good, if I can find them anywhere...

Open Range, the best newer western I have seen in a long time.

Lonesome Dove is outstanding, however, it was a mini-series, so it's four chapters on two discs. It's been out long enough to find excellent used copies. I got mine for twenty bucks at a used bookstore I frequent.

The Magnificent Seven is a classic.

Some of my favorites are:

Quigley Down Under
Silverado
Pale Rider
Open Range
Dances with Wolves
Broken Trail
True Grit
Rooster Cogburn
The Shootist
The Outlaw Josie Wales

Two Mules for Sister Sara, I don't know why but I like this one. I watch it every time I come across it on the Tube.

If you're interested in a series or two, "Branded" and "The Rifleman" are amazing, black and white starring Chuck Connors. I own them on DVD, never gets old.


Young Guns is also good, based on the Lincoln County Wars between John Tunstall and Whateverhisnameis. Great cast; Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Philips and other greats..
