Rodeo/Western DVD Movies?

Do you have any?

We got one for Christmas called Rodeo Girl from 1980, starring Wilford Brimley and Katherine Ross. This move was inspired by real-life rodeo World Champion Sue Pirtle. Watched it the other day and learned a whole lot more, than I already knew, about WPRA and their ladies events.

Also have: 8 Seconds (the Lane Frost story w/Luke Perry), The Ride (Michael Biehn/Brock Pierce), A Cowgirl's Story (Bailee Madison/Pat Boone), Pure Country (George Strait), Second Chances (Isabel Glasser/Pure Country actress).

Westerns: documentary When The Cowboy Was King (movie/tv cowboys from the past that I use to watch), documentary Winchester "The Gun That Won The West", Bad Girls (Drew Barrymore), Crossfire Trail (Tom Selleck/Wilford Brimley), documentary The Great Cheyenne Nations (I've studied the Indian Wars) and The Gambler Returns (has a number of old Western tv stars in it I know)

The Man from Snowy River is a must have, IMO. I slot it right there with the Western Genre, even if it's an Aussie legend (Jim's Ride)

Lonesome Dove... if you don't speak Lonesome Dove, Ol Son, you ain't no super puncher (Quote from Dale Brisby)

Tombstone (My favorite hoodie to ride in has Well? Are you gonna do something.... Or just stand there and bleed? on the front of it... one of my horses could read and he took that as a challenge btw).

Magnificent 7 (The new one is my favorite of the two).

We have several John Wayne films, and I really like the new True Grit with Josh Brolin (Even if I was outraged they tried to pass of the scenes in the mountains as being in Eastern Oklahoma... lol... No. Nooo no they were not, it looks NOTHING like that!)

PERSONALLY, I love Disney's Lone Ranger. Armie Hammer... oh... my... What a tall drink of water that guy is!

Young Guns and YG2 for a campy 90s Brat Pack feel.

If you want intense and so emotional it's hard to watch more than once, Hostiles with Christian Bale is a good one. But it is a very heavy film.

If you want to look into a miniseries, look at Texas Rising. IIRC, it was one of Bill Paxton's last performances.

I forgot about Dances With Wolves and the Magnificent 7 (Denzel Washington) that we have. Actually, I like Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp over Kurt Russell's version. I have a couple of old, black & white, of the Lone Ranger and well as a full-color feature movie w/Clayton Moore. I like John Wayne's True Grit over Bridges one.

Most of my films are on digital format these days - downloads... but I have the DVD of Mag 7 and Tombstone... just to keep in my horse trailer and watch while camping if I find myself unable to sleep.



I have a lot of trouble with Kurt Russel's Wyatt with all the guyliner under his eyes. I just can't unsee it... he has better eyeliner than I do... Buuuuttt... I adore Val Kilmer's Doc Holliday. Also a very quotable film.


I've only recently began watching some of the Clint Eastwood films of the 70s and 80s... but Unforgiven is one of my favorites as well.

Well... he should have armed himself."


One that's grown on me but is so so campy... is The Quick and the Dead.



OH. 3:10 to Yuma is also a very good western and one I have.

If you're into documentaries, "Wild Horse Wild Ride" and "Down the Fence" are ones you'd probably like.

We have a portable DVD Player that we can use on our boat, if we want to. We never spend the night on it, but if we wanted to watch a regular movie, we have some that will play on it.

I wonder if any of the Gen X or Millennials on this forum have ever seen some of these older movies? I know, thru parents and grandparents, some have listened to Classic Rock and Oldies.

I'm a fan of "Comes a Horseman." James Caan and Richard Farnsworth did their own roping in it.

Also like "Westward the Women" with Robert Taylor. That was a good'n.

"Cat Ballou" is always good for a chuckle.

If you like Documentaries then 500 Miles was really good and the whole thing is available on Youtube:

When I was a teenager I really like the movie Silverado, but I don't know if I like it anymore now that I am older.

My favorite serious Western of all time is Unforgiven.

My favorite non-serious Western is: My Name Is Nobody.

I really loved Lonesome Dove and Tombstone. My husband really loved Blazing Saddles and will still watch it, I think it's kind of corny, lol.

I LOVED that film!! So funny (but I haven't seen it for a while).

Down the Fence is as an awesomely filmed documentary on reined cowhorse (focusing on the Snaffle Bit Futurity). Since I ride Reined cowhorse & contributed to the film's making, I am required to love it (LOL) but I would anyway.

Other favorites:

Lonesome Dove
Blazing Saddles
Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid
Silverado
Two Mules for Sister Sara
How the West Was Won

& I love all the Clint Eastwood Westerns ....
