  • Greatest Western Movie Tournament

    "What we have here is an opportunity to communicate."

    So wrap yer hands around that iron, err, mouse, and start clickin'! This is the place to vote for your favorite Western movies of all time! Galloping alongside the 100 Greatest Westerns movie guide comes this interactive forum tournament, whipped up and corralled by a few of the best cowpokes on these forums.

    Four categories of 25 movies each start off the tournament, and it's your chance to take aim and pick off your 8 favorites from each category to choose only the top 32 movies. So don't stand there whistlin' Dixie! Unflap that holster, loosen up that trigger finger, and fire off your vote. What's a'matter, you a yellow-belly?

      Most of the credit goes to Blitzpuppy, Siberian Heat, and the staff at Wild West magazine. It was their idea, their list, and mostly their work.

          Agreed. Literally the only thing I did was set up the posts in the forum here. And don't let Biscuit fool you, she did her fair share and then some, so show her some love too!

            Jim,

            Once the field is narrowed down is there some kind of seeding system (I hope) or are they paired at random?

              Of that I am unsure. My understanding is that our very own and much adored Siberian HEAT will be doing something with the final selections.

                I would highly recommend that the top eight vote getters are seeded...........#8 Vs. #1, #7 Vs. #2, #6 Vs. #3 and #5 Vs. #4. This would keep the top vote getters from the preliminary voting from going head to head in round 1
