"The Western Genre is a classic and all-american movie category."
My Dad really loves the Western Genre. He's always been a huge fan of shows like Gunsmoke, and just about every Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen and Charles Bronson movie ever made. Not that every film they did was a western, but these folks certainly made their share of those movies.
Even though this isn't one of my all time favorite genres, I can say that when it's done well, I AM a big fan. I think back to the first time I saw the latest remake of 3:10 to Yuma (1977) I was very impressed.
