As we all board the hype locomotive into insane expectations, I think it would be nice to have some scenery along the way so Id like to make this thread dedicated to other media such as movies or documentaries or even tv shows (although they can be a little harder to just pick up and watch regularly) that will soothe that case of cowboy fever


Several of these have been mentioned already in General Chat but I will get us started and we will see what everyone else comes up with:


Jeremiah Johnson (1972)

Pale Rider (1985)

Unforgiven (1992)

No Country for Old Men (2007)

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007)

True Grit (2010)

Meeks Cutoff (2011)

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

The Hateful Eight (2015)

The Revenant (2015)

Hell on Wheels. Very underrated imo, although I may be a bit biased, with my love for trains lol. It starts off kinda slow, but the setting changes constantly throughout the show which keeps it fresh and interesting.

I've seen all of these movies :blush:most as a child with my great-grandma together. Before her death she also gave me all her Western novels and books ... some of them are almost 50 years old and I still have them all. Beautiful childhood memories and they are also good against the drought :D
I love the old westerstars e.g. Lee VanCleef, Clint Eastwood, Henry Fonda, Burt Lancaster, Charles Bronson, James Garner, Randolph Scott, James Stewart, John Wayne ... but I believe that all but Clint are dead by now. The new Western Movies can keep up, even if they sometimes miss the charm as I think ...

@yelda I also experienced most of my time with Westerns with my grandmother. In the last decade of her life she was mostly bed ridden, but I would sit with her in her room and we would watch so many western films and she would give me old Louis Lamour novels.

@cozzi i don't know what that means.

I saw the searchers once, and I know it's supposed to be "the greatest western ever" but I honestly didn't like it at all. It isn't even my favorite John Ford film.

Also, while I am grateful for everyone's contributions, I want to try to keep away from the classic spaghetti westerns i.e. cacti and mexicans and ponchos and mesas. That was the first game. I want this to be the more mountainous and planes kinda stuff from like the Homesman or such. Pale Rider is probably the best example of what I mean. It's a CLint Eastwood classic! I want to throw some trailers up soon. R* sure isn't lol.

Lists are boring, people. Why not pick an item or two and actually tell us why said movie/tv show/book is recommended and deserving of our time so we can actually partake in some discussion?


Crow Killer: The Saga of Liver-Eating Johnson.



Crow Killer is the book about John "Liver-Eating" Johnson, the real life inspiration for Robert Redford's movie Jeremiah Johnson, who was a bear of a mountain man. The book details life in the west for these mountain men and what it was like at the time. The book is also an account of Johnson's one man war and vengeance against the entire Crow Indian tribe after one day in 1847 he returned home to his cabin in the Rocky Mountains to find the remains of his Indian wife and unborn child who had been murdered by Crow Indians.


A real page turner and a great companion piece to the movie too. With the Grizzlies and northern isolated regions with possible Indian Wars or involvement in RDR2 it's also a great read to stoke the imagination for the game.





Longmire is a TV series that ran for 6 seasons and just wrapped up, it's available on Netflix. The series tells of a dedicated but old fashioned and immovable Sheriff, Walt Longmire, who is recently widowed but buries his pain as he tries to take care of his county in Wyoming.


The series is fantastically acted and written and is more a Neo Western given the lead character and the location. The show is interesting given the constant beliefs and conflicts of the cultures including the Native Americans and the reservations. Each episode is mostly self contained but there are multiple running storylines that evolve and continues all the way from the beginning of the show to the end.


Also what's up with Arthur Morgan looking like Walt too?! lol

Heres a clip from pale rider, i which Eastwood plays a mysterious stranger (as always) come to save a small mining town from oppressive forces that seek to destroy it, and retrieve the gold upon their claim. The group of 7 men you see are cold blooded killers turned Mercenaries, with whom Clint Eastwood shares an ambiguous past.

My Darling Clementine, John Ford's Western Noir. Don't be put off by the simple title.


For something in a world of it's own, Marlon Brando's One Eyed Jacks. It's recently been restored and this modern trailer looks really good. Tell me you don't get some RDR vibes from this:

Im a very big fan of the Coen Brothers, and this is also one of my favorite westerns. I will let the trailer largely speak for itself.




This is anothers very recent film, on Netflix. Warning this one is a slowwww film. Very well made very meditative and beautiful and artistic but my god this is some slowwww. Theres another movie on Netflix called Childhood of a Leader, and if you like that then maybe youll like this. Its 2001 a Space Odyssey Slow.


EDIT: The second movie reminds me a lot of the waiting in the general thread

Starring: Sharon Stone, Gene Hackman, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russel Crowe



In a small town called Redemption, a deadly dueling competition takes place every year. Many Gunfighters are fighting for money, fame and glory.

The gunfighting contest is organized by Redemption's ruthless mayor and former outlaw John Herod (Gene Hackman).

An unnamed gunslinger known as The Lady (Sharon Stone) ride into the town to exact revenge for her father's death.


THE QUICK AND THE DEAD is certainly not the most sophisticated Western but it makes fun with great pictures, action, guns and great actors. Gene Hackman as tyrannical mayor and Sharon Stone on her bloody vendetta.

I had fun watching this movie :)

Barquero is probably one of R* references on making the mission We Shall be Together in Paradise where Marston and Irish cross the river to Mexico, only thing you need to know is Lee Van Cleef kicking ass not even 2 hours long.


Giu la Testa/Duck you Sucker is basically another Sergio Leone masterpiece just as good as the Dollars trilogy and Once Upon a Time in the West, one of the most beautiful and glorious Ennio Morricone soundtracks, movie is exceptional start to finish, also the whole Mexico arc in RDR is strongly based on this, MUSt WAtCH.


Django (1966) Western classic also the mission Assault on Fort Mercer is based on one of the scenes in this, in my opinion much better than Django Unchained.

I love dark country music.

I mostly ride without music to enjoy nature but when it gets too quiet, I listen to this music on my old I-Pod :)

I recently saw that new movie hostiles and I have to say it was very terrible, and I don’t recommend it at all.

What’s the consensus here on west world? I don’t care for it but that’s because I’m in the field of cognitive science/cognitive engineeringand I get to unimmersed wen they f*ck something up. Like being a detective watching Law & Order or something.

I like Westworld. Actually, I'm not a fan of science fiction, but it's really well implemented here. I'm looking forward to the second season.

I can recommend you to give this show a chance

Diablo (2015), the official synopsis is "A young Civil War Veteran is forced on a desperate journey to save his wife" but there's a lot more going on. It stars Scott Eastwood (Clint's son) but also features Walton Goggins and Danny Glover.


It's a pretty simple story with a few refreshing updates and some pretty solid character work. I recommend it.
