I have been watching a lot of westerns. There characters and outfits are amazing. The panoramas almost make me wish I lived in Utah. I love the motifs of strongmen taking on the world by themselves and chasing the sunset into the unknown. The scores are also bitchen. Pretty much you can't go wrong.

I think that we will see a recurrence in the popularity of westerns as a backlash against modern problems such as excessive consumerism, urbanism, and constant electronic tethering.

Sergio Leone's films are simply amazing and his close work with the composer Ennio Morricone make the films even better.

Here are some classic tidbits mixed in with some modern renditions of the genre to wet your appetite.
