I like Clint (obviously so, or I wouldn't be here) but five of his films in the top ten?  ??? I'm sorry to say but there has to be some other more deserving westerns out there.
Yes, Brendan, but you have to take into account that this list obviously bears no relation to reality in the first place!

7. Outlaw Josey Wales - Practically a remake of High Plains Drifter but with more backstory, sub-plots and fully developed characters. You can still feel the sting of that darned whip!

I don't agree with this comment, at all. Josey Wales isn't a movie about revenge; it's about loss. It's about what happens to a man when he loses all that's precious and important to him.  It's about a man that is struggling to find his place after losing everything but his own life.

Some say it's about avenging the death of his family, but there's no indication that he's out to hunt down Red Legs. While he joins a band of raiders, you could easily make the case that it was about the only option open to him after burying his family. He's trying to get away from Red Legs, and only in the end does he follow up out of the valley and kill him.

As a Clint Eastwood fan, I would Include GBU, The Outlaw Josey Wales and maybe Unforgiven.

So at least they got that right.

I personally think they could have left High Plains Drifter off any top 10 list, and as much as I love it, maybe even A Fisful of Dollars.

But these issues aside, this list is seriously lacking in so many respects.

Of course their omission of John Wayne's best films is just a serious embarrasment to their voters intelligence.

Another glaring omission is the classic Pollock/Redford flick Jeremiah Johnson.

These voters are dullards when it comes to westerns.

Got to agree on this one. An underappreciated classic!

I believe we have a thread where everybody ranked Eastwood's westerns.

I have apparently made a grave mistake by putting this poll on the site. I just put it on for sh*ts and giggles. My bad guys!

Maybe we should create our own list, like Kiwi Cowboy said. But instead of just Clint westerns, we should rate all the westerns and correct this misinformed list. Then post it on the site and show people which movies are the real top ten westerns.  People will believe us over TechTV

How is it the quintessential western movie star, John Wayne, didn't make this list?  What a load of crapola!  Although Clint is my favorite, I consider The Duke the best "western" movie actor.
I´m with you Jed.That list sucks even with the all those Eastwood westerns in it.

I'll search for a better list.


Here is one.

1 ) Once Upon a Time in the West
2 ) The Searchers
3 ) GBU
4 ) The Treasure of Sierra Madre (Not really a western, but a great movie no doubt)
5 ) Unforgiven
6 ) The Magnificent Seven
7 ) The Gunfighter
8 ) Rio Bravo
9 ) Shane
10 ) Winchester '73

(Since Treasure of Sierra Madre ain't a regular western here's another: Tombstone)

This thread was started in, and allowed to remain in, the "Clint Eastwood Westerns" forum because the original list posted had several Eastwood Westerns on it (even if the author of the list apparently hadn't seen them). If anyone wants to post general lists of favorite Westerns, you are welcome to, but please do it in the Off Topic forum.

8. Treasure of the Sierra Madre - A later-era Western to be sure, but a terrific character study in greed and trust, and a fine example of why we are still talking about Bogart to this day. The man oozes star power

Any movie set in 1925 and the main character wears a Fedora can not be a Western....
