This List Is Missing Deadwood: My Favourite Westerns by Trevs
Never set in stone, a list of my favourite westerns, which will hopefully be expanding with the more films I watch. Re-orders can also occur, of course. It is loosely in order – very loosely. #1 being my favourite western, #2 being my second favourite, etc. After a few more entries though, and any order loses meaning. Don’t ask why for example I like #17 more than #18. I will be using this description space to later write down a list of westerns I need/want to see that I have not watched.

Never set in stone, a list of my favourite westerns, which will hopefully be expanding with the more films I watch. Re-orders can also occur, of course. It is loosely in order – very loosely. #1 being my favourite western, #2 being my second favourite, etc. After a few more entries though, and any order loses meaning. Don’t ask why for example I like #17 more than #18.

I will be using this description space to later write down a list of westerns I need/want to see that I have not watched. And I’ll be taking suggestions.

This is not a list of every western I’ve seen, or every western I think is good, just the ones I’d enthusiastically call myself a fan on. For the record, I have seen The Searchers and Stagecoach, and while I see that they are good, after one viewing a piece, I’m not enthusiastic enough towards them to put them on this list.

Adding TV into the mix, Deadwood would probably be at #6. I’d combine Firefly with Serenity; maybe keep it where it is. Cowboy Bebop would be an inclusion as well. And I’ve always wanted to see that short-lived western series starring Bruce Campbell.
