  • Greatest Westerns FINAL: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly v. The Magnificent Seven

    Our final contestants!

    Brackets Here.

    The Good, The Bad And The Ugly (1966)
    The Good is Blondie, a wandering gunman with a strong personal sense of honor. The Bad is Angel Eyes, a sadistic hitman who always hits his mark. The Ugly is Tuco, a Mexican bandit who's always only looking out for himself. Against the backdrop of the Civil War, they search for a fortune in gold buried in a graveyard. Each knows only a portion of the gold's exact location, so for the moment they're dependent on each other. However, none are particularly inclined to share...

    The Magnificent Seven (1960)
    A remake of "The Seven Samurai." Seven men are picked to guard a Mexican village from Banditos that come every now and then to take whatever the town has grown since their last visit. When they are hired, they go to the town and teach the villagers how to defend themselves. When the leader of the bandits come, they fight him and his men off. the second time he comes the villagers give the seven to them, due to a heated argument. The leader of the bandits take their guns and throw them out of town he gives them horses and gives their guns back to them when they are far out of town. The seven decide that they aren't going to run, and head back to the village for a final showdown.

      Eli Wallach or Eli Wallach? ...Tuco or Calvera???

      I'll cast my vote for the 21st best western movie ever made...The Magnificent Seven.

      The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is certainly the best of the Spaghetti Westerns...

        To quote another movie:

        "There can be only one!"

        I congratulate the magnifiscent seven on the second place finish

        The Good the Bad and the Ugly is superior in so many ways it is not even funny.

        All this spaghetti western hate seriously...

              I call shenanigans! Nothing says American West like a foreign film or a remake of a foreign film!

                I don't think either one belongs here in the finals but so be it, gotta go with M7 over GBU if that's all that's left.

                  Well as I cannot vote for one of the dozen better movies, my vote goes to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

                      Unforgiven should be here instead of GBU. I can't believe it missed it by like 2 votes. Very distressing. Unforgiven is the greatest western ever.

                        Not my top two choices but I 'll go with Yul and Steve.

                        Sorry Clint.

                          How did this happen? Both good films but neither the greatest western of them all. Has Al Franken been counting the votes?

                            True Grit... but its nice to see my number two and three here.

                            The Good, the Bad and the Ugly get my vote, if only because i think Tuco is a more interesting character than Calvera.
