Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Best Western ever made.

    How about Lonesome Dove? I have watched this series many times and never get bored of seeing it again. The more I watch it, the more I see!

    Great actors:-
    Robert Duvall
    Tommy Lee Jones
    Danny Glover
    Robert Urich
    Anjelica Huston

    If you haven’t see it, give it a look see.
     
  2. No, most definitely not! I bought that on the rave reviews of an aquaintance, and was sorely disappointed.

    Some that spring to mind are, in no particular order:

    'A Man called Horse' with Richard Harris

    'Little Big Man' with Dustin Hoffman

    'Tombstone' purely for Val Kilmer's performance.

    'Wyatt Earp' a Kevin Costner western, which managed to avoid being mind numbingly boring.

    'Silverado' an underrated movie, with a bit of everything.

    'The Outlaw Josie Wales' classic stuff!
     
  3. High Noon - no question about it.
     
  4. Anything with Clint Eastwood, especially

    Two Mules for sister sarah
    High plains drifter
     
  5. Blazing Saddles :D :D
     
  6. Hang 'em High
    The Searchers
    High Plain's Drifter
    Unforgiven

    I can see an excellent weekend and unhappy wife looming
     
  7. Anything with Terence Hill and Bud Spencer

    My Name is Nobody
    They Call me Trinity
    Trinity is still my name
    Man of the East
    Boot Hill and a few others

    James Coburn
    Waterhole #3
    Fistfull of dynamite

    And all Clints
     
  8. In all seriousness Tombstone was a good shout.
     
  9. Absolutely no contest - The Searchers.
     
  10. For me, True Grit. Just the two lines of dialogue:-

    "Fill your hand you sonofabitch!"

    and

    "Get off your horse and drink your milk"

    are enough to make it my favourite.
     
  11. It has to be True Grit
     
  12. Blazing Saddles! they dont make films like that anymore, a truely great western
     
  13. Alias Smith and Jones.

    Wild Wild West

    Shanghai Noon

    :twisted: :D
     
  14. Once upon a time in the West?

    The shot with the guys coming over the hill in those dusters, not to mention Cheyenne's speech before he dies about slapping women on the arrse and how they should just accept it...

    The Culpepper Cattle Company.

    Great movie, no poncing about just grim reality.
    Oh, and the whorehouse scene was based on the escapades of MDN in the 'Dam.
