I saw yesterday Hostiles with Christian Bale. A very good movie.

I didn't care for it. I made it through the first two stories and then turned it off. It just wasn't what I was looking for and I lost interest.

"Outlaw Justice", with Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and Travis Tritt.
  It's not going to have you pondering existance or anything, but man is it a fun movie.
  Great for miniatures scenario ideas too.

The Long Riders - interesting that they used real acting brothers to play brothers. And it's a reasonable take on the James/Younger gang.


Always been my favorite.  Love many others, but Riders is my go to.

Man, this is a great thread, I'm going to be copying and pasting suggestions into a master file.

I don't have much to contribute, most of the ones I'd suggest have been listed, but I will say I always have a soft spot too for The Professionals as a good actioner, and I'm not at all biased by Claudia Cardinale.  Borrowing from Wikipedia: 'Grant calls Fardan a bastard, to which Fardan retorts: "Yes, sir, in my case an accident of birth. But you, sir, you are a self-made man."'

Recently watched John Wayne's Alamo too, liked it for what it was, rousing 1950s mythology.

Warlock, with Richard Widmark, Henry Fonda and Anthony Quinn.
Open Range, Kevin Costner, Robert Duvall.  Good film, maybe the best gunfight in any western movie.
