Durango

Durango's the name of a Mexican state situated in the heart of the country, and it's the setting for one of the greatest and most notorious films, Western or otherwise, ever to be made: The Wild Bunch.

Known for its violence and groundbreaking action cinematography, The Wild Bunch is Sam Peckinpah's classic tale of betrayal and opportunism, focusing on a gang of bandits being hunted by one of their own from Texas to Mexico. During an era when the popularity of Westerns was waning, Peckinpah made certain the genre went out with a resounding BANG, employing the kind of realism he felt had been missing from other similar films. Filmed on location in Mexico, The Wild Bunch offers a gritty glimpse at what life may have been like south of the border in 1913.

Why even mention Larry the Cable Guy? It will only encourage him.

How could you mention "Treasure of the Sierra Madre" in a article with "The Real Cancun"?

Mexico beat the french army, even thou they were outnumbered and overpowered, every man an a lot of women fought that battle and we won. They were trying to conquer Mexico and would later attempt to conquer the United States, so we saved you the trouble. This was back in the 1860s.
