Anyone know of films in a modern setting with the qualities of a western?

There will be blood.

3:10 to Yuma (the new version with Christian Bale).

Chooseing modern westerns seems to be the easy thing to do.

3:10 is a straight-up western.

I'm talking about films that take place in the modern world, but with elements typically found in a western.

Alot of Tarantino's films seem to have a western quality, I would say Inglorious Basterds, but its not modern day.

Someone said to me once that the original Star Wars trilogy was like every western ever made, just set in space.

Come away, oh human child,
To the waters and the wild
With a fairy hand in hand;
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

Quentin Tarantino draws a lot of inspiration from old spaghetti westerns. Some good examples you could try are the Kill Bill series, Hell Ride, and and Inglourious Basterds.

I guess I could use that. I guess that my paper is basically about Westerns outside the west. I'll definitely look into Tarantino (especially Basterds and Kill Bill).

What are these "qualities of a Western"? Might be able to help more if you specified.

I don't think you understand his post.

He wants a movie that has the qualities of a western, but placed in a modern setting.


EDIT: But I see you've figured that out. Disregard this post.

Star Wars. But that's not a modern setting; it's the past.
