Ten Thousand Motels I kind of like this juxtaposition between the avatar and the pic. The eyes kind of look at you from the same angle.

Bloozehound Here are some excellent, music related, cult westerns.

1. Banderosa (w/ willy nelson, gary busey. really underated)

2. Johnny Guitar (with the crazy Gen. from Dr. Strangelove)

3. Pat Garrat and Billy the Kid (bloody, excellent, b. dylan, k. kristofferon)


1 personal fav, not sure if it's a cult western, but a good one.


The Professionals (Wild Bunch-ish action western with burt lancaster, lee marvin and woody strode)

Ten Thousand Motels Lee Van Cleef helped define Kool. Keith needs to star in a western in his old age. Van Cleef could be a great mentor for him. I mean Van Cleef drips kool.

Yeah. I think Dylan had the right idea early on. But he jumped too quick. Far too quick. A western today with Dylan would be monumental. Throw in Keith and Clint Eastwood as main charachters. A guy could create the ultimate western. Take a page out of Lee Van Cleef....well the skys the limit.

mac_daddy Dead Man



I am quite partial to High Plains Drifter and Fistfull of Dynamite...

but The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is pretty f*cking sweet, too...

while a bit off-topic, I also have to mention Lonesome Dove (the book, not the movie)...

edit:

I have also always enjoyed Blazing Saddles and Silverado...

Bloozehound Yea keith would make an excellent villian in a western.

I could see a lynch mob corning him and he says something like

"I draw the line at posse's"

and then blows them to bits with a stick of dynomite or a hidden gatlin gun lol (I know, stupid)


The Magnificent Seven

The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallance

Once Upon A Time In the West

Hey macdaddy, have you seen "Coffee and Cigarettes" yet? It's been released in France this week... I can't wait to see it, although the reviews don't sound too enthousiastic.

(damn HTML!)

Yeah. Well I had a great idea for a western. I'd cast Keith as a washed up old Sheriff who was fast on the draw once but now is still fast but rusty. The town is in the grip of a crime wave by drunken cowboys off a cattle drive...of which the old sheriff can't cope with. Then the hero, the new sheriff in town, played by Marshall Kid Rock rides into town. All the old saloon girl friends of the old sheriff, ditch the old sheriff and throw themselves at Marshall Kid Rock's feet. etc etc.
April 9th, 2004 04:49 PM
Bloozehound I said villian, but I really meant a Eastwood/man with no name-anti-hero type, or villian, either way would work.

An old sheriff would be perfect, but I don't know if Kid Rock should get all the girls.

Shouldn't Keef and Clint be the hero's, and Kid Rock be the wicked young rustler, he could kick some dirt on them with his horse, kinda like he did Joe Dirt lol

Well no. Because in the final scene the old sheriff walks into the saloon,( after they've cleaned out the rustlers,) while Marshall Kid Rock is playing poker and blasts him in the back. Of course the Kid is holding aces and eights.

Well I guess the lesson is don't take anything Kid Rock says too seriously.

Yeah that was good. A bit drawn out though....like Shane was a bit too drawn out too. But it always seems to be worth it when they deliver the last lines. A great book to read if you like trying to interpret "cult westerns" is the Hero With A Thousand Faces.

Cant Catch Me "Red Rock West," w/ Nicolas Cage

John Woo's "The Killer." Tho' filmed in Japan it's really a mythical Western.

"Kalifornia," with Brad Pitt, Juliette Lewis and some doofus from TV.

"El Mariachi," but not the remake.

"Unforgiven" is pretty damn good.

"Alien," with space as the final frontier.
