We recommend dozens of our favorite western films to watch at home right now.
You’ve reached the destination for home viewing recommendations, pardner. Over the years C&I has taken the western genre seriously and covered it well, so that puts us in a solid position to offer up plenty of options for a night at home with some popcorn (pop it in a pan – it’s better that way).
The most important step is finding just which online services and streaming platforms offer the title you’re looking for: Plug any title of a TV show or movie into JustWatch’s search engine, and you’ll see where you can rent, purchase, or watch for free online.
Of course, you can’t go wrong binge-watching all of the original Lonesome Dove mini-series. Or, you could go down a deep rabbit hole of movies starring one of your favorite stars.
We’ve got retrospectives on the westerns of Jimmy Stewart, the long career of John Wayne, and the ‘Dollars’ trilogy starring Clint Eastwood. Oh, and for those of you still carrying a torch for the late Clint Walker, try a few of his westerns.
C&I writer Joe Leydon is recommending his favorite westerns made after the year 2000 on the website every day. Click here to find the latest selections, including Australia, Badland, Dead Men, Hickok, and The Sisters Brothers.
