The Magnificent Seven (1960)
This one is a bit older, but that doesn’t mean it won’t inspire you to look for your perfect western match. The movie was based on the legendary Akira Kurosawa film “Seven Samurai”. It’s a story about an oppressed and desperate Mexican village whose peasants hire 7 amazing gunslingers to help them protect their precious homes. With the guidance of the fantastic director, John Sturges, Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen did an amazing job while filming this western classic.
The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966)
You probably heard the famous tune from this iconic movie composed by one and only Ennio Morricone. Ok, to be honest, you won’t see many gorgeous and handsome dudes in this one (except young Clint Eastwood), but this film will show you how badass cowboys really are. It’s safe to say that this movie made Clint what he is today. He played a gunslinger named Blondie who decides to work with other two con men in order to get the buried gold. The film features one of the most iconic endings in the history of cinema.
The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)
One of the rare recent western movies that managed to amaze the wider audience. If you’re looking for handsome and beautiful cowboys, well, this movie is the perfect choice for you. Andrew Dominik’s masterpiece features Brad Pitt as Jesse James and the immensely talented Casey Affleck as Robert Ford. The dramatic story of how Robert killed Jesse will put you into a proper western mood.
High Noon (1952)
Easily one of the most legendary westerns ever made. Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly are absolutely phenomenal in this one. Gary plays a Marshal Will Kane whose citizens choose to abandon him after they hear there’s a gang on the noon train that’s coming to kill him.
This spectacular movie will knock your socks off! Clint Eastwood managed to do an excellent job both directing and acting in this film. It’s a story about a retired Old West gunslinger called William Munny who decides to take on one last job. Morgan Freeman and Gene Hackman also did a brilliant job!
