i got to say that westerns were the first movies that i found very educational in the study of human nature. through this format i got a good appreciation for storytelling and performace, and realized there is alot more depth to it.

1. The Missouri Breaks - this movie relates to the paragraph above, brando and nicholson, both great characters

2. Tombstone - great story, kind of like a epic, but trimmed down so there is no dull spots, kilmer is awesome in this, russell does great, great villains

3. The Good, The Bad, The Ugly - awesome visuals, really great story, three scoundrels in the pursuit of gold, high entertainment and no need for a complex plot

4. Quigley Down Under - great story, great character, great story, great leading lady

5. Posse (1975) - great story, douglas and dern do really good work

Some very exceptional choices on both your lists, GP and Kash. People need to see the more obscure ones like Posse and A Fistful of Dynamite; they're great. [Smile]

It's too hard for me to pick only 5 westerns, but i'm a sucker for euro westerns, so some titles that
would definitely be on my list are Django, Keoma and The Great Silence which takes place in snowy
landscapes, has a mute as the lead character and the most depressing ending you'll ever see..
Oh, and Klaus Kinski is in it too ! [Big Grin]
Really great stuff !

Not too long ago i purchased the book Any Gun Can Play ; The Complete Guide to Euro-Westerns.
It's really good, with lots of vintage artwork too !

Has anyone seen the spaghetti Western "The Price of Power," a/k/a "Texas." I've always wanted to see it because the plot sounds so interesting: There is a conspiracy to assassinate President Garfield done in a way to remind viewers of the assassination of JFK.

Crash,

i haven't seen The Price of Power, but it is available on an import dvd from Brazil (of all places).

It apparently is in stock here in Holland at www.cinecityplanet.com , a small independent
mailorder / online shop specialized in spaghetti-westerns.

I proably would have said some of those already used Dark Helmet, **** Vernon, Ed Rooney, Shooter, Big Ern, Biff Tannon,or the villans of one of my all time favorite films the Klopecks from the burbs. But I figured I would give a few humorous villans not yet mentioned a spotlight.

although I admit I wasn't trying to think too deeply, I am surprised that so far I'm the only one to mention Buck Russell.

Good old Uncle Buck is a real down-to-earth hero.

Cool choices earlier Crash & Helen_S

Fistful of Dynamite is a movie that never gets a mention, even Rod Steiger playing a Mexican doesn't detract from its awesomeness.

Heroes

1. Batman
2. The Incredible Hulk
3. John McClaine (Die Hard)
4. Ah Jong (John Woo's The Killer)
5. Han Solo

I was going to put John Keating from Dead Poet's Society in there, but since I'm not sitting alone in a bohemian coffee shop pensively pondering poems by Walt Whitman, I didn't! He is kind of hero, though.

Villians

1. Clarence Bod****er (Robocop)
2. Moe & Josh Flatbush (Mo' Better Blues)
3. Col. Dekker (A-Team)
4. Bennet (Commando)
5. Ivan Kraschinsky (No Retreat No Surrender)

Buck Russell is a good choice, but I was thinking more action adventure hero.
