Hey

Sun Mar 13, 2011, 4:17 PM
You think if I shove a bunch of self-righteous platitudes on a piece of paper, I'd get a DD?

HEY GUYS, I've been at a friend's house all weekend because of stuff, and we've spent our weekend watching Westerns. I know those things are sort of out of style these days, but I love the interesting rights and wrongs and moral codes of it. There's something so legendary about it all.

Also Tom Selleck and Sam Elliot. Didn't have any time for The Duke today. :c But Sam Elliot's mustache is all kinds of brilliant.

Fuck I want to watch Tombstone again.

ANYWAY, do any of you have any Westerns you like or can recommend? XDD if there is anyone here who actually enjoy them like I do.

I got a lot of homework and jobs to do but I think next time I get free time Imma be drawing some cowboys O_O

I've never seen the original True Grit but the remake was a lot of fun. I'm still bothering my friends with it; every time they ask me something I do my awful Jeff Bridges impression: "There's nothing more I can do for you, son." Drives 'em nuts. Well worth it.

Western (and alien) movies are starting to make a bit of a come back. Even some video games are in on it too (Red Dead Redemption for example)

Actually, Westerns are starting to come back INTO style. Rango, True Grit, Ecstacy of Gold, Jonah Hex, American Bandits, and in May... Cowboys vs. Aliens. All of these movies are from 2010-2011.

Hahaha everyone and their mother has suggested what I would've suggested, but I recommend Blazing Saddles, Unforgiven, Tombstone (which you already watched so disregard that one), and Maverick.

I haven't seen that many Westerns but the ones I've seen I liked them.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre - Has the funny quote: "Badges? We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinkin' badges!"

And I have to agree with everyone else on "The Good The Bad and The Ugly" :P

Also on the DD thing, I think it's easy to get a DD as long as someone suggests for you. I've suggested 4 DD's and 3 of them were accepted. I've seen people complain to their watchers they want a DD and ask them to suggest for them and because of that they get one right away >_<... I think sometimes the Mods have trouble finding something amazing every time.

Blazing Saddles is hilarious. My parents love My Name is Nobody. My dad loves The Oulaw Josie Wales. I think those two are westerns (I've never watched them myself). My dad also said Rango was pretty good.

-The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Epic.
-The Good, the Bad, the Weird: South Korean reimagining of GBU. Hella fun.
-Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
-True Grit: Either one; I think the remake's a better film, but John Wayne owns the role of Rooster Cogburn.
-The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance.
-The Wild Bunch: SO DAMN AWESOME.
-The Magnificent Seven.
-The Searchers.

Uh... that's all I can think of off the top of my head.

ANYTHING WITH JOHN WAYNE!!!!!

Also Sam Elliot is badass. He is perfect as Buford in Gettysburg. But thats not really a western....
I always freak out when I hear his voice on commercials. For some reason he reminds me of a hound dog of some kind.

I don't watch a lot of Westerns myself, but I have a friend who loves them and one of her favorites is Once Upon a Time in the West.

As far as True Grit, I saw it and quite liked it! I hear the two versions are so similar that if you've seen one you've basically seen the other. (With the exception of some minor characterization things and the very last bit of the end.) But I haven't seen the older version so I couldn't rightly tell you for sure!

Someone Reccomended the Quick and the Dead right? It is just Awesome. First off: Female Protagonist. I think that should be a plus in anyones book but this one is especially badass. Second: gun Fighting tournament. tournament Arcs may be played to death sometimes but that is for a reason. Played Correctly a Tournament is INTENSELY COOL and allows for exciting Matchups from an exciting cast of Characters.

Finally the Cast pretty much fires on All cylinders. Russell Crowe, Sharon Stone, Leonardo Dicaprio back when we was a Teen Heartthrob and GENE FRIGGIN HACKMAN Bein Bad on the GENEtic level.
Blazing Saddles is Awesome and Hilarious and made of pure love for the Genre too.

Everyone seems to have suggested what I would've suggested. Blazing Saddles (apparently the guy that wrote the theme song didn't realize it was a parody film), Magnificent Seven (Seven Samurai, the film that they adapted, is also a great movie), the Dollars trilogy (though if you don't wanna dedicate the time, the last one in the series is really good by itself)...

There was one with Clint Eastwood that he directed that also had Gene Hackman...I think it's called The Unforgiven? I'd recommend that too.

'The Outlaw Josie Wales', hands down the best Clint Eastwood western EVER!! Basically anything with Clint Eastwood is good, can't go wrong with that man. Also I remember being entertained by 'Hondo', but I haven't seen it in years and I think it was more amazing because my dad got a hold of a 3-d copy when I was young.

True Grit (the new one) was also amazing! Saw the original and really didn't like it, plus I can't really stomach John Wayne. All his movies seem hokey to me (also John Wayne plays John Wayne in everything he did).
My dad recommends 'Jeremiah Johnson'. It's his favorite Western, and that mans got pretty good taste when it comes to movies.

Also saw someone recommend 'Calamity Jane' That ones a pretty good one too, but I think it's more of a musical.

You might. People are honestly DD'ing anything these days. :/
As for westerns, there's a sort of remake of The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly called... The Good, The Bad, and the Weird. It's a Korean Western indie film, and it's EXCELLENT. Long, but a perfect balance of funny and serious. I don't know, I liked it, and I don't like westerns. Otherwise, 3:10 to Yuma aaaaall the way.

If you want bad-@$$ery, I recommend "High Plains Drifter" with Clint Eastwood.

For an amazing story and character development, I recommend "Lonesome Dove" with Robert Duvall and Tommy Lee Jones.

For just a great Western all round, I recommend "Wyatt Earp" starring Kevin Costner and Dennis Quaid (he plays an AMAZING Doc Holliday). Its long, but I prefer it to Tombstone.

For a great story about being a real man, I recommend one of my favorite movies of ALL time - The Big Country. Directed by William Wyler and starring Gregory Peck and Charlton Heston. :)

Hope you watch at least one of those! Those are my faves. Have fun!

Hey, Crispy, if you're upset, maybe you could tell me directly? This sort of hurt, and I don't think I deserved it, it's not like the thing was attacking you. I am upset it got a DD, because it was flawed, and was... text. But seriously, I'd love to discuss why you thought it was self righteous, why you were offended. c: I don't want this between us.

Crispy-Gypsy Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011  Student
XDDDDD I'M NOT UPSET. All that other shit was just a random thought.

I can dislike things without being "offended" or personally attacked, and I can dislike things without it making me dislike a person, and I can dislike things without having to explain myself, right? You're making a lot of assumptions behind why I said what I said.

But anyway, it was more a commentary on the Daily Deviation sequence than on your piece. It's typical of the process, you know--they go for things that they think are "deep" or edgy even if it's a shallow reiteration of tired phrases and hackneyed rhetoric. THAT is the stuff that bothers me the most. Even more so if it's a finger-shake at people not being "better than that." And they do it all the time. Sure, I'll admit that your piece sparked that when I saw it in the stream, but it's a comment on this sort of selection as a whole.

And this is all personal opinion. It's nothing you should give a shit about or anyone should give a shit about. I never said I was right, or wrong, or nothin, so don't feel like it's something to even really think about. XDD I know that I don't even really care, it was just an annoyance that came up. And to be frank, I don't even really want to debate it. *shrugs* Do with that what you will.

XDD in short, there's absolutely nothing between us, unless you want to put it there.

Okay, thank goodness. I'm so sorry I was assuming. I had like, JUST seen a post from a best friend I'd been fighting about react negatively to it (rightly, since she partly inspired it) so when I saw your sentence I got all sad. Testament to the fact I keep messing up. Good grief, I blew that out of proportion, glad I didn't get mad. ^^;

And yes, I TOTALLY agree about the process. I mean, I was a little proud of it when I put it up, but then I saw the DD and went, OH GOD, NO, SEND THEM AWAY. No false humility there--I understand that people like it pretty much because it's edgy, a little rude, etc. If one person actually goes out and lives more positively though, it's worth the mess it created.

So, yeah, nothing to discuss, sorry I assumed. I do that. A lot. Sorry it happened to you. I almost ignored it but I didn't want to think ill of you, even a tiny bit if you didn't deserve it.

ALSO, another apology--I'm not on DA a lot, I totally forgot that I commissioned you, let me take care of that right now. youprobablythinkI'manidiotandyou'dberight

XD don't worry about it. And I'm sorry that it worried you. WE ARE BUT HUMANS. But don't fret about that stuff, I don't publicly shit-talk people even vaguely unless they did it to me first.

So if you want me to, write a call out journal first =D

"I almost ignored it but I didn't want to think ill of you, even a tiny bit if you didn't deserve it. " :c If you think for a few more seconds, you could probably come up with something to think ill of me for. I don't deserve half the respect i'm given, and I'm extremely thankful that you didn't just snap your fingers at me and demand to know why I was being an asshole.

It...it has happened before. -_- It was disheartening, but boy were THEY embarrassed when they found out I wasn't talking about them. Not that any of that took back the crap they said about me in their accusation. And that is how I know I am a terrible person! :3

XDDD as for the commission don't worry about it. I don't think you're an idiot, I just assumed you hated it, and I had prepared to go hide somewhere.

Well, okay, I could think of a few things, but I'm guilty of the same exact things, so, haha, I prefer to give people the benefit of the doubt BECAUSE I am so judgmental. There's a point when people are just... uggghghghhh and I hate it when my brain wants to think that way about people with whom I've gotten along with in the past. And yes, I didn't figure you for the kind of person to shit talk someone like that, guess what's why I was a bit shocked and assumed. I hate the internet sometimes, it's so hard to understand things.

Sorry they didn't take anything back... humility is one of the hardest things to do. It's hard to expect people to be decent, but the internet is rife with communication problems. :<

.......I LOVED THE PICTURES SO MUCH I DON'T EVEN. I'M SO SORRY, EXCUSE ME WHILE I SHOOT MYSELF. (in fact I danced around that day so much because I loved them that the people below my room came up and told me to knock it off)

The Dollars trilogy: A Fistful of Dollars, For A Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. You can watch them in any order or just one of them, they're not really a trilogy in any sense except that they use the same protagonist. The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is the best of the three. Clint Eastwood was soooo hot back then.

If you want something newer, the new True Grit is very good. (I didn't like the old True Grit much, Jeff Bridges is way cooler than John Wayne.)

If you have a PS3 or an XBox360, you should play Red Dead Redemption, best old west game ever made, very fun and I love the story. Plus there's an add-on for a zombie plague side-story. Zombies in the old west hell yeah.

"The Missing." Not a "classic" Western, but it is hard to go wrong with Tommy Lee Jones, Injuns, and the classic "redemption" tales.

And of course, the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, but fuck that one is LOOOOOOONG and just NEVER SEEMS TO END. But it definitely leaves you thinking.

Definitely "The Searchers". Stars the Duke, directed by John Ford. I got to watch this gem in Film History and Appreciation class.

Basic synopsis- A retired Confederate soldier searches for his niece after she is abducted by Comanches. We got to explore how this film, while looks like a typical Western, is John Ford's attempt to deconstruct it, but academic discussion is optional when watching it.
