Once upon a Time in the West
Finally got around to seeing this one. I'm not a huge fan of Westerns, but since so many people rave about this movie, I felt compelled to see what all the fuss was about.
I always thought this film pre-dated the "Man with no name" trilogy, but I just realized it actually came afterwards.
What can I say? I liked it. It didn't blow me away, but I can see why it's so popular among fans of the genre. I thought the pacing was great, and I especially liked the slow build ups that led to some of the action scenes. I even thought Charles Bronson, who I've never liked, was great in the role of Harmonica.
Anyone here seen "A Fistful of Dynamite" (aka "Duck, You Sucker!")? It's supposed to be a pseudo sequel. Just wondering if it's worth checking out.
