They just released Walter Hill´s classic The Long Riders (1980) here on dvd.

What do you guys think, what is the best western made in the 80s?

I should rewatch Pale Rider.
I remember that i liked it but not much else.
So, Chris Penn was in it too...

I love this original poster art, it´s so iconic.

Never seen "The Long Riders" but I will be getting hold of a copy now it's been released on DVD.

I vote for "The Long Riders," "Pale Rider," and "Silverado," in that order. Can I consider "Outland" and "Near Dark" to be Westerns? [Smile]

I'm watching Pale Rider right now! Definitely one of my fave Westerns of all time!

The Long Riders bored me to death! Didn't like it at all.

That is a good list.

Next i´m gonna get this 1989 Billy the Kid tv-movie.
Val Kilmer was so cool in the 80s.

Westerns is probably one of my least favourite genres, and by the 80's, it was all but dead. I do find most of the Clint flicks watchable though!

And you can't go wrong with the modernized 80's western vibe of these two classics!

Extreme Prejudice rocks!
I need to rewatch Lone Wolf McQuade soon.

Alex Cox did two modernized 80's westerns in 1987 which i like very much:

Straight to Hell & Walker

I watched Lone Wolf McQuade not too long ago...one of my fav Chuck Norris movies. I'll have to do a bit of research on 80's westerns before I decide on a favorite...I have tons of westerns, but not many from the 80's....

The Man From Snowy River besides The Grey Fox.

I intend to write Rewind reviews for both of them. I haven't seen the latter, though I would like to.

Incidentally, I notice that "Western" isn't in the genres. What is going on, Nick? [Confused]

Devolution here,

One of the great things about Long Wolf McQuade is the buried truck scene. So vivid to watch it as a kid it made
me buy it on DVD.
