Last time I stayed at Best Western I saw this great movie on Cinemax called "Cancun Heat" although I lost interest and got real sleepy about 10 minutes in.

Yes really, something else for a change :)
 
Its a nice movie. Energetic pace and camerawork, decent humor, good cast and its not that serious, but without becoming a parody. I'm not a big fan of the classic 'American' westerns, and there're already 3 spaghetti ones in my top5, so not much left :p (well, I liked 3:10, Silverado, Three Burials and Open Range too)

I agree with aforementioned High Noon and The Treasure of Sierra Madre. In addition, how about Little Big Man and The Magnificent Seven? In case I might be accused of only picking classics, how about 3:10 to Yuma for my fifth?

Alright then. Two of 'em. Both had my father in 'em . It's peculiar. I'm older now then he ever was by twenty years. So in a sense he's the younger man. Anyway, first one I don't remember too well but it was about meeting him in town somewhere, he's gonna give me some money. I think I lost it. The second one, it was like we was both back in older times and I was on horseback goin' through the mountains of a night. Goin' through this pass in the mountains. It was cold and there was snow on the ground and he rode past me and kept on goin'. Never said nothin' goin' by. He just rode on past... and he had his blanket wrapped around him and his head down and when he rode past I seen he was carryin' fire in a horn the way people used to do and I could see the horn from the light inside of it. 'Bout the color of the moon. And in the dream I knew that he was goin' on ahead and he was fixin' to make a fire somewhere out there in all that dark and all that cold, and I knew that whenever I got there he would be there. And then I woke up...

Your mention of Little Big Man reminds me that I quite like A Man Called Horse.
