I saw last time old westerns movies on tv.
I mean those old western movies where really cool, with Indians.
dont know the name. The indian was tracked by 25 guys, he invented to be under a waterfall, with a way to breath out of water. The foes camped and waited all the night. He waited during the night, under water, got away and stole a horse, and tried to reach his indians home, tracked by ennemies.

Don't you watch the beginning of films? Where it shows the title? Who was in it?

Actually it's very strange but on TV I NEVER see the beginning of any movie. Maybe statistically it's greatly disfavored ? But then why is it statistically more probable that every time I see a movie on TV I see it from almost exactly the same place ? or that it's also very probable to only see the very end of the movie and credits ... but never the beginning, not for me.

I think frenchnoob misses the beginning and end, judging by his posts. That last one sounds vaguely familiar.

I'm looking forward to Von Trier's 'Antichrist'. It's going to hit the cinemas in England next weekend. Hopefully, it'll be worth watching.

hi guys!
Well I saw only 30minutes of the movie, in the middle, I had to go then.
But it was lookign cool. I tried to find with google the name of the movie, by using the clan of indians, but not found. (I dont recall it now, since it is quite 1-2 weeks ago) well ... no matter.
well that was a cool movie, it looked, but not so google appreaciated

EDIT:
I found it with my history of firefox.
The indians were the CARILLAS indians.
but google says nothing

I did a search for "Carilla" along with "western", and got the following: Riding With Death (a couple of the actors in it had the name "Carilla".) Here's a New York Times description of it.

It's likely not the movie you're looking for.

This happens a lot to me.

Most likely reason is that I am a random viewer and I rarely look at the TV timetable or schedules because I'm rarely interested in movies.

It so happens on occasion that something happens to be interesting going on and I continue to watch.

I've not seen the new version, other than a trailer, but it looked awful to me, but then I don't really care for the american style of in-your-face-subtle-as-a-sledgehammer comedy.
Hmmm, was it a comedy? It's been awhile, but do remember it on cable tv not too long ago. Last time I saw the original, we still had a blk & wht tv!

The original was in black and white and starred the always fantastic Alistair Sim. Ealing Comedy, IIRC, and they were always hilarious.

Perhaps Jicarilla Apache? When I searched for this, along with the terms "western" and "movie", I got A Gunfight, which, from the description, is not what frenchn00b was referring to.
