Best Western - Modern Era
What's the best western in the past 20 years?
I can only think of a few but IMHO Open Range is my favorite off the top of my head. It has probably the best gunfight of any western I can recall.
I'm sure there will be some Tombstone fans as well.

Unforgiven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "You just shot an unarmed man!" "The man should've armed himself, decoratin' his place with (the body of) my friend."
It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

I have a hard time picking between those three. I like Unforgiven, Open Range and Tombstone. They are all classics in my opinion.

Some great ones already mentioned. Two of my favorites not mentioned so far:

Open Range, with Robert Duvall and Kevin Costner. Much under-appreciated, I think. Excellent storyline, good acting, and the love story doesn't get too much in the way of the core.
The Virginian, with Bill Pullman and Diane Lane. A bit darker and slower than most prefer, but the story's a very good one and still works well despite the remake.
Quigley Down Under, with Tom Selleck and Alan Rickman. Excellent storyline, action-packed, a comedy masked as a western. Rickman's acting and timing is as good or better than his effort in Die Hard.
Unforgiven, with Clint Eastwood and Morgan Freeman. IMO, could (should) have been better, given the roots, but a good effort and a classic none the less.
Pale Rider, from 1985 with Clint Eastwood. One of my favorites. Interesting, a fairly tight storyline, funny.
3:10 To Yuma has promise. Have seen it twice. Give it a few years to age, but it'll likely be on my list 20yrs from now.
Last Stand At Saber River, perhaps, with Selleck.
Here's a list of hundreds, from the silent era to current: click.

Dances With Wolves, but I guess you could question if it is a western.

I'm not sure it fits in the timeframe asked for, but this one is one of my favorites too. I just watched most of The Alamo with Dennis Quaid and Billy Bob Thornton a couple of nights ago, and that was pretty decent.
