The John Wayne True Grit was terrible. Matty was one of the most annoying characters in western film history.
It's just a different era. It's like comparing Sands of Iwo Jima to saving Private Ryan.

Any top 5 list of John Wayne's Western Movies has to include Stagecoach and The Man Shot Liberty Valance. I would put both in the list ahead of The Shootist.

Bad acting is bad acting no matter what the era though. Same for a bad character.

I was having more fun talking about westerns than voting.

Yep.

This should morph into a Greatest Westerns thread.

I completely disagree about Wayne's True Grit paling in comparison to the remake. I might be biased because I grew up on the old True Grit on VHS and loved the light-heartedness and colorful characters of it and thought Wayne was great..."well, come see a fat old man sometime" - one of the greatest ending lines ever...

I found the remake too dark...literally and figuratively and sort of joyless.

I'm in the Wayne camp all the way...love Eastwood's man with no name but the Duke is Americana and the Western genre along with Ford as the director.

Rio Bravo and Red River and the Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are classics.

As for greatest Westerns?

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
High Noon
Unforgiven
Once Upon a Time in the West
The Searchers

(I guess Eastwood gets the nod though, because I have two of his movies up there...but I could just as easily replace Unforgiven with Red River or Rio Bravo or even True Grit - yes, because I love that movie. - But Unforgiven is modern one that deserves its praise.)

I agree, Drive is a weak imitation of Shane.
