Newer westerns?

I just saw Tombstone for the first time the other day. (Yea, I'm a bit behind the times) What a kickass movie. Are there any other newer westerns that are comparable to see? I've seen all of the old John Waynes and the like.

I know there's American Outlaws with the whip-creamed bikini chick in it, I think I actually saw that and remember it being really dumb.

I liked...
"The Quick and the Dead" with Sharon Stone
"Wyatt Earp" with Kevin Kostner, long but good.
"Young Guns" 1 and 2... was there a 3?

Agreed on the Wyatt Earp movie... If you liked Tombstone, you'll like Wyatt Earp. "I'll be your Huckleberry"
And Young Guns is a great flick too!! "You are not a God...", "Why don't you pull the trigger and find out"
And no, I don't think there was a 3rd installment of YG.

I know this isn't your typical western, but how about "The way of the Gun". Set in the current southwest I think it has a lot of old western influence. Excellent shoot outs anyway.

Tombstone is an awesome movie....I think you will like 'The Unforgiven' with Clint Eastwood....I think it is one of his best movies ever....

The character of Doc Holliday played by Val Kilmer in Tombstone was one of the most witty, badass guys I've ever seen. I might have to watch it again

Thanks for all of the suggestions guys.

If you like Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday wait til you see Dennis Quad play him in Wyatt Earp.....Both of them did a great job playing him....

Did you ever notice how the guns sounded in all the spaghetti westerns? The sound was way cool, but I've never actually heard a gun sound like that. Can't you just hear that sound now?????

I agree that his acting in the older Westerns was awesome, but I should have clarified a little better. I think his acting was superb in The Unforgiven but he directed it too and I was primarily referring to that.....
