I hadn't planned to participate, but I've already coincidentally watched two films that easily qualify as westerns, so...I'll just record any that cross my path this month.

01. To homa vaftike kokkino a.k.a. Blood on the Land -- Georgiadis, 1965.

Greek Communist western. (No, seriously.) This is the second Greek western I've seen; I think I like Oi sfaires den gyrizoun piso better, but this one has some beautiful cinematography. On the Academy Award International Features list.

02. Un dollaro bucato a.k.a. Blood for a Silver Dollar -- Ferroni, 1965.

One of the better Spaghetti westerns I've seen in a while (I've been watching minor ones, so it's not like I'm comparing this to genre masterpieces). Good plotting.

5. Die Spinnen, 1. Teil - Der Goldene See a.k.a. The Spiders Chapter 1 (1919)
I find it kind of interesting that only the first part of this Fritz Lang pseudo serial counts for the western challenge. Having watched both parts, it makes sense though.

6. All Hell Broke Loose (2009)
This was hot garbage. So sad that this was David Carradine's final western.

I was very much surprised. If I didn't knew it was from Ford, I never would have guessed it. Sure, experts may be able to point out similarities, but for me it was an experience wholly different from a typical Ford movie. The atmosphere, the cinematography, especially in the beginning, was excellent. Considering I take very heavy medication it was prob a mistake to watch it first thing early in the morning. I have to admit, I couldn't always follow the plot (very likely my own fault), so that lowered my enjoyment.
I'd like to say that I'll watch it sometime again, but with my life expectancy and so many unseen movies ahead, I'm afraid this won't likely happen. Right now, the movie is in the Top 20 of the 1935 poll, but I'm planning on watching every official movie from that year I can get my hands on. However, the movie did change my perspective on Ford a bit. While I don't think its a masterpiece, I now think that under the right circumstances, he would have been able to deliver one.

With unusually low camera angles as horses charge in the inevitable attack and exquisite nighttime shots near the end in low lighting, it is easy to see why Orson Welles was a big fan of this. As a narrative though, it is less impressive. While the notion of having so many different characters with diverse motivations is intriguing, the relatively short runtime leads to very few being fleshed out in depth; John Wayne and Claire Trevor really hit it off though.

This was all over the place... some nice elements, some weird elements, and was a weird mix of historical drama and comedy. Just felt disjointed. Worst part was the language - because it was all in English, it was impossible to tell who was speaking what language. But it holds the record of longest age range portrayed by a single actor, so that's interesting.

5. The Man from Nevada (Gordon Douglas / 1950) 5/10
6. The Timber (Anthony O'Brien / 2015) 2/10
I chose this purely because I felt like watching something snowy and the screenshots looked pretty good. It succeeds on the snowy factor; it's a exceedingly snowy film. The photography is also decent. It fails on practically all other fronts. Two brothers in some remote mining town are assigned to capture their cracked father from an even remoter mining outpost in order to save their family's home from being foreclosed on. Beyond that I was often uncertain on what was happening or why. It's unnecessarily muddled thanks to clumsy editing, poor blocking and dialogue that's often muffled or fumbled by the actors. When you can make out their speech it's mostly pretentious olde worlde diction, presumably aiming for Shakespearian tragedy. The designer stubble and perfectly coiffed hair are decidedly modern though.

A Cowboy Needs a Horse (Bill Justice / 1956) 7/10
Probably the pick of this string of short films. A young boy falling asleep to a lullaby dreams of several brief adventures in the wild west.
Animated in modernist style, not the style of animation I usually like, nor the cutesy style Disney are known for, but it works perfectly here. I could've watched it for far more than the seven minutes it lasts.

Vitamin Pink (Hawley Pratt / 1966) 4/10
The SpoilersShow
1. In Old Oklahoma (Albert S. Rogell / 1943) 6/10
A solid but unspectacular tale of John Wayne as a rugged underdog prospecting for oil while navigating a love triangle and business interests with Albert Dekker's uncompromising tycoon. I wonder if the theme of of the unsympathetic capitalist oil magnate pitted against the collectivist poor farmers and Indians would have got made 10 years later, still less with Wayne as the head of the collective. The fact that it was written by women shows in the romantic subplot, which doesn't always blend convincingly with the main story.
2. The Great K & A Train Robbery (Lewis Seiler / 1926) 6/10
Entertaining silent with Tom Mix as a Lone Ranger-like hero foiling robberies on trains passing through the spectacular gorges of the Colorado Rockies. Plenty of impressive in-camera stunts, for which I'd say Mix's horse deserves at least equal credit.
3. Dakota (Joseph Kane / 1945) 5/10

One quick comment about Cut-Throats Nine... Yes, it's a very bloody, very bleak grindhouse western, but it is a damn good movie too. It's also very obvious that it was a big influence on Tarantino's The Hateful Eight.

The story has potential here with Henry Fonda having to contend with the fact that he is not really a proper sheriff despite the fact he has put so much effort into the job. The film is never quite about this identity dilemma though with a truckload of scenes related to various subplots including a bland female romantic interest and an intriguing possible gay love interest that is left hanging. This feels overstuffed at over two long and dialogue-heavy.

Supported by a terrific theme song, excellent dramatic music cues throughout and the sheer strangeness of seeing him drag the coffin around, Django gets off to an intriguing start. Things get even more interesting when it is revealed why he has the coffin with him. The eventual business purposes revelation of why he is in town is disappointing though, and the second half is less mysterious, but the ending is still brutal. And that ear scene. Ouch.

10. 'Doc' (1971)

This western takes a nontraditional approach to depicting the events leading up to the gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Wyatt Earp seems less heroic than ever, depicted as more of a crooked politician interested in his own agendas than a man with the best interests of his town at heart. With a less heroic spin also comes more languid pacing though, and outside of the Doc/Earp scenes, it is only the gunfight near the end that recaptures initial tension.

3. Woman Walks Ahead (2017)
This is truly a rare movie, a feminist western that also puts Indians at the center of the story (and without any one in redface). That alone gains this movie credit, though it's disappointing that a movie so dedicated to providing greater agency and centrality to peoples often excluded from cinematic depictions of history also includes numerous historical inaccuracies. Aside from all that, it's OK.

4. Cowboy (1958)
A workmanlike effort with no frills--this is just the story of a trail drive, with a tiny romance thrown in to get the plot moving. Very similar narratively and thematically to Red River.

5. The Last Wagon (1956)
If you can get past the cornball sentiment and how Widmark's character is such a perv, this is a very good Western with a stripped-down narrative and plenty of action.

04. The White Buffalo, by Jack-Lee Thompson (1977) 7/10

Half western, half horror/monster flick. Quite enjoyable.

05. I quattro dell'Ave Maria, by Giuseppe Colizzi (1968) 4,5/10

Terrence Hill & Bud Spencer's attempt at serious western. Not too bad, considering, but certainly not really good either.
