My 10 favorite Westerns

A multi-media list, off the top of my head:

Red Dead Redemption (video game)
Lonesome Dove (book)
The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly** (film)
Deadwood (TV)
Blood Meridian (book)
Unforgiven (film)
Dead Man (film)
Firefly (TV - Space Western!)
Red Headed Stranger (album)
No Country For Old Men (film)
(Inspired by Jim Coudal’s list.)

** Really, you could put the complete Man With No Name trilogy here, plus Once Upon A Time In The West. TGTBATU is just the one I always go back to.

What are your favorites?
