...I was born in 1968! (And I'm modern - I'm certainly not old enough to be "Classic" yet!)

OK, I LOVE Westerns, so here's a list (confirming many of the selections previously made):

Open Range
Young Guns
Young Guns II
Purgatory
Wyatt Earp
The Quick and the Dead
3:10 To Yuma
Silverado
Pale Rider
The Outlaw Josey Wales


I'm keeping the list to the mid 70's to present. I'd say The Outlaw Josey Wales was one of the first true "Modern Westerns," in style. Pale Rider isn't great (and is a remake of Shane, more or less), but it is pretty good and it's an Eastwood Western so it's definitely worth watching.
