Maybe poker's just not your game, Zod. I know, let's have a spelling contest!

I like Tombstone but Josey Wales is definitely better.

A top 20 list of westerns is highly subjective. No one is arguing that Josey Wales is not a classic. Tombstone is likewise universally considered to be a classic flick. For what it's worth, you'd be hard pressed to find a Top 10 Western list that has either Josey or Tombstone on it.

Does this mean we're done with quotes now? :(

Can we do Spaceballs or Jaws next?

Tombstone is good entertainment.


Once Upon a Time in the West is a great film and the best western ever made.

No mention of The Cowboys!

Jeremiah Nightlinger: "I regret trifling with married women. I'm thoroughly ashamed at cheating at cards. I deplore my occasional departures from the truth. Forgive me for taking your name in vain, my Saturday drunkenness, my Sunday sloth. Above all, forgive me for the men I've killed in anger...and those I am about to."

Or The Big Country with Gregory Peck.

And of course Josey Wales is the standard by which to judge all other westerns.

My favorite scene is when he kills the two fur traders at the trading post.

Tombstone is a very entertaining movie. Why pigeonhole it as "not being Western enough"? That's like criticizing Field of Dreams for being a bad baseball movie.

Roscoe Lee Browne had some great lines in that film. I love the movie, hate the title lol.





Jebediah Nightlinger: Ohhh, children... My father was a brawny Moor, six feet six inches tall. He bound his head in a red velvet cloth
[hands knife to Slim and the boys relax, but listen]

Jebediah Nightlinger: He wore a curved sword, forged from the finest Toledo steel. He captured a lady, bright and dark. he took her in his arms and wrapped her in a warm quilt and carried her off. They came to a castle and he battered down the doors with the trunk of an oak tree and KILLED EVERYBODY IN IT, just so they could rest the night. Later, while she slept, he walked the parapets... and became a king.

Charlie Schwartz - Cowboy: [in awe] Is that true?

Jebediah Nightlinger: If it isn't, it oughta be...

Shane is great, no doubt about it a better film than Tombstone but I don't enjoy it quite as much. Rio Bravo deserves mention as well.

Wyatt, when asked what he plans to do in town:

"somethin'...nothin'...hell, I don't know."

Wyatt, realizing who the actress in devil costume on stage is: "Well I'll be damned."
Doc, upon hearing Wyatt's comment: "You may indeed, if you get lucky."
