The 57 Greatest Westerns Ever, Ranked

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's fitting that Clint Eastwood and John Wayne both have the same birthday week. (Wayne, who died in 1979, was born May 26, 1907, while Eastwood turns 85 on May 31). After all, these two all-American actors' careers span the history of that most American of movie genres, the western.

Both iconic actors were top box office draws for decades, both seldom stretched from their familiar personas, and both played macho, conservative cowboy heroes who let their firearms do most of the talking. Each represented one of two very different strains of western, the traditional and the revisionist.

As a birthday present to Hollywood's biggest heroes of the Wild West, here are the top 57 westerns you need to see.

57. 'Meek's Cutoff' (2010)

Indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt and her frequent leading lady, Michelle Williams, are the talents behind this sparse, docudrama about an 1845 wagon train whose Oregon Trail journey goes horribly awry. It's an intense »

Icons of Fright Interview With Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard Director B. Harrison Smith

12 February 2015 2:18 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

B. Harrison Smith isn’t a fan of how everything has been done regarding the zombie subgenre, and well, he’s right. There’s no danger, no character development, and more often than not, zombie films tend to give fans the same ol’ thing. Smith flat out refused to make a zombie film himself, until the idea of Zombie Killers: Elephant’S Graveyard came his way, and an opportunity to give fans a very character-driven, broad piece of zombie cinema came his way. Icons of Fright recently spoke to Smith about the zombie genre, his film and how important story is to a film. Read on!

How’s it going, Harrison?

Jerry Smith, great last name.

Yeah, I love it, I’m so plain. 

Well, it’s a pleasure to talk to you, thanks for reaching out!

Not a problem. First of all, I just wanted to tell you that I really enjoyed your film, »

Jeff Bridges and Nicolas Cage Play Marble-Mouthed Mentors in Seventh Son and Outcast

7 February 2015 3:18 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It wasn’t that long ago that Jeff Bridges and Nicolas Cage were known as Academy Award-winning actors with talent to burn, but time and poor judgement (and in Cage’s case, tax bills) have turned the two into shallow, mumbling shadows of their former selves. Cage has been saying yes to every single offer he receives for a decade or more (seriously, the guy is averaging 2-3 movies per year, and most aren’t even hitting theaters), and Bridges has found himself in an odd rut of variations on True Grit‘s Rooster Cogburn. Seventh Son has had something of a troubled road to theaters — it was originally scheduled to release in February of 2013 — and now that it’s finally here you’d be hard-pressed to believe the delays added much to the final project. The hero is bland, the story plays out exactly as you’d expect and the action sequences are rarely all that »

'Seventh Son' (2015) Movie Review

5 February 2015 9:24 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Seventh Son is the Chicken McNugget of movies. You know there are better options out there when it comes to your chicken-eating selections, but something about the greasy simplicity and drive thru nature of the McNugget calls to you. Before you take a bite you know what you're going to get and to hide the actual taste of the nugget you drench it in a dipping sauce. As your teeth crack the crisp (if it just came out of the frier) outer shell and squish through the processed meat inside, your mouth is covered with a viscous layer of... something, preventing the taste from leaving your mouth long after you've swallowed. In an effort to fix this you take another bite, this time dipped in even more sauce, but the result is the same. The McNugget is a mirage. It isn't chicken and no amount of sauce is going to »
