My favorite Back to the Future movie is the third one.

I think the humor and the adventure was at it’s peak and I love how they switch the dynamic Doc and Marty have with the introduction of Clara.

In all honesty it was probably the first “western” that I watched all the way through. My dad would have a John Wayne movie on now and again but I usually fell asleep before it was over. My dad too. It’s the same reason he watches golf.

But as I grew up and became more interested in cinema, there came a time to explore the Spaghetti Western. I fell in love with the Man with No Name Trilogy and Sergio Leone. I started exploring more genre defining titles such as The Magnificent Seven, The Outlaw Josey Wales, and The Searchers.

I especially love the movies that are “secret” westerns, one of my favorites being John Carpenter’s Assault¬†on Precinct 13.

Sit down Hawke, I'm talking about the 1976 original. You are garbage.

Imagine my delight when I sat down with my kids to watch The Good Dinosaur only to discover that it’s a western complete with Sam Elliot.

So western board games excite me, much as the video game Red Dead Redemption did.

I made a quick video on some that I have played.

But for real, Saloon Tycoon. This game combines a lot of things I really like in games, and I would play this anytime. Hear my thoughts and some other crazy stuff in the video at the top of the page.
