Gonna Watch The Dollars Trilogy For the First Time


#1

Just order the trilogy off Amazon (<LINK_TEXT text=“http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spaghetti-Weste … 761&sr=1-1”>http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spaghetti-Westerns-Box-Set/dp/B000ADFWPU/ref=pd_bowtega_1/202-3514247-4374207?ie=UTF8&s=dvd&qid=1173863761&sr=1-1</LINK_TEXT>), I can’t wait. I’ve seen thye first 20 mins off TGTBATU, looks sweet.

It’s so cool. One of the best trilogy’s there is…


#3

I must admit, I’ve only seen The Good, the Bad and The Ugly- the other two I’ve never had the chance to watch them from beginning to end.



Once of these days…


#4

You gotta DO THAT SHIT!!



Get the biggest TV you can get, pop those babies in your DVD player and sit back and enjoy some classic pure cinema storytelling!! 8)


#5

:o



YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET?!



:o



Do you live under a rock? lol.


#6

Yep, lol. My dad and i used to watch a load of westerns, but he don#t like the style of spaghetti westerns. Anyways, FFOD tonight, oh yeah.

For a Few Dollars more is better. You really see A Fistful Of Dollars is Sergio Leone’s first western. I may even like For a Few Dollars More better than The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. The whole cemetery scene in GBU(not only the duel, but everything before that: Tuco running around and shit) is one of the best things in cinema I’ve ever seen. It’s just perfect but i don’t like everything about the first half of the film.

Man they are coming out with a leone boxset in june. You should have waited!


#9

Or buy both :wink: Yeah, that’s a good idea :slight_smile:

I tried watching a Fistful of Dollars but couldn’t get really far, my inborn hate against westerns, even Spaghetti ones didn’t let me.



I like The Good, The Bad and The UGly though. Not like I think it’s totally awesome or anything, but it’s quite interesting.

Try For A Few Dollars More. It’s miles better than Fistful IMO. Fistful is good, but it drags in certain parts and it doesn’t quite possess that Leone distinctive trademark. FAFDM is amazing from start to finish, and it’s not as long as GBU or Once Upon A Time if you have a problem with length.


#12

I love length if there’s great material. Would be awesome to watch GBU in a theatre, you don’t get many long movies in theatres these days


#13

Fantastic movies really pissed off i bought them on dvd with the crappy 2.0 sound!


#14

I love the Dollars Trilogy, all three films are fucking great.


#15

LEONE is the master nad while youre at it go get ONCE UPON A TIME IN ZTE WEST now cause its frickin awesome.





and to those who nagged bout zhe length. Leone considered every single detail and lets the scenes breathe. Every single scene is allowed the time and space it needs----perfect and you cant make it better.



Once upon a time in the west is also a favourite of our web,aster Sebastian, isn´t it?


#16

He talked to QT about it in the interview didn’t he. That’s one of the things I would like to Tarantino about, why he likes GBU better than Once Upon a Time in the West, would be a cool conversation.


#17

For a Few Dollars more is definatly my least favorite although a great movie.


#18

You like fistful better?


#19

yea fistful is great i love the ending of it too.


#20

I also like Fistful of Dollars better too. But I like Yojimbo a lot also, which probably has something to do with it.



I give the Dollar Trilogy a 100/10 :wink:
