I'm not really into westerns. The closest I think I've ever seen and really liked were Back to the Future 3 and Maverick (the movie, not the series).

You'd probably like Silverado as well. I'd check it out.

I love Silverado. Hmm, didn't put that one on the list, either.

Silverado, like Blazing Saddles, Maverick, and the Quick and the Dead... is almost a spoof or homage to the genre. Maybe you should add that as another poll question. Favorite pseudo-western, spoof, or homage. Then you can include Back to the Future 3 and Shanghai Noon.

^ Pshaw. Next time I want to see Willy Wonka whip out a gun I'll return to my fantasy land.

Make sure you bring the beans by the campfire.
