The Dollars Trilogy: Please Watch


I’ve recently become infatuated with Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy, including A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.  I have a personal fave, as do most that have seen all three flicks.  Today IMDB.com posted a poll asking how many times people have seen The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, which happens to reside at #4 on their top 250 movies of all time.  Pretty lofty.  The poll told a different story: the resounding reply was “I’ve never seen it”.  Huh?  How the hell did this flick get to #4 if the majority of people who visit the website haven’t even seen it?

What’s more troubling is that the movie-going masses have never devoured these films the way I have.  Seriously, I can’t get enough of them.  For a Few Dollars More swiftly moved into my top 20 favorites of all time, with Leone’s own Once Upon a Time in the West possibly above it.  To watch these films is to love them, at least in my eyes.  Aside from having Clint Eastwood at the peak of his powers, those two flicks feature some of cinema’s greatest villains ever conceived, plus the most iconic music score from Ennio Morricone.  Plot twists, backstabbing, anti-heroes,  and without a doubt the greatest stand-off in the history of cinema at the end of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly all populate these films.  There really isn’t a point to this post, but perhaps it will inspire a casual reader to watch the trilogy.

I may buy the poncho for Halloween.
