    You can't fire him!

    We're basically required to pay him for putting up with his brother.

    Now watch For a Few Dollars More. Then watch The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. Then watch them again, but in story order instead of release order.

    Then watch Once Upon A Time In The West and take a drink every time you see a John Ford homage.

    Fun fact: the "Man With No Name" trilogy was a thing invented to market the films in America.

    Eastwood's character has a name in all 3 films.

    Fistful: Joe
    A Few Dollars More: Manco
    Good, Bad, Ugly: Blondie

    Fistful is a remake of Yojimbo, and just like in Yojimbo he just makes up a name when someone asks him for it. But it ain't his real name.

    Also Yojimbo is an adaptation of the Dashiell Hammett book Red Harvest.

    I have no proof of this. It is just what I think.

    What is the story order? I thought it was the same as they were released: Fistful is the start, then For a Few More. He's called Manco to draw attention to his hand which is in a brace after being tortured in Fistful. Then he gets rich and drifts away from his roots and in GBU he returns to them after comforting the dying soldier.

    I suppose you could put GBU first though. But I like the 'rebirth' stuff, particularly with the near death experience in the desert.

    when you look for this make sure you add "in the west" or you're gonna be in for a rough time

    GBU is first because it's set during the Civil War, and I'm pretty sure Fistful or Few More mentions that war as a thing that already happened

    Then go watch stuff like High Plains Drifter and Pale Rider and develop whiskey-fueled theories about why they're all the same character

    Which movie does he get his iconic poncho in?

    GBU is a prequel to the Fistful movies.

    i mean, the proof you could have is that he said his inspiration was Dashiell Hammett and that film scholars say the inspiration is Red Harvest.

    I want that Judge Dredd U story with the shark-headed corporate guy and "Yes, he is an idiot." I can't remember that Judge's name for anything, though. Little help?

    Huh, I wonder if this is where we get 'manky' from.

    I'm going to go with 'yes'.

    Another reason the Man With No Name moniker is awesome is the reveal at the end of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

    Of those three I have only seen Good, Bad, Ugly.

    I remember it being long.

  • GvzbgulGvzbgul Registered User regular
    It is long, but worth it for the awesome end.

    I prefer For a Few Dollars More out of the trilogy, because it's a nice mid point between the simple, straightforward plot of A Fistful of Dollars and the long meandering The Good the Bad and the Ugly. I have a soft spot for Once Upon a Time in the West as it's closer to a more traditional western. The main reason I watch the films is for Ennio Moricone's soundtracks.

  • Muddy WaterMuddy Water Quiet Batperson Registered User regular
    I remember the first time I saw The Good, The Bad and The Ugly was at, like, 1 am in the morning. I was starting to feel a little drowsy and falling in and out of consciousness during the civil war segment.

    But then Tuco's head hit the gravestone and Ecstasy of Gold started.

    I was fucking jolted awake and watched the climax wide-eyed, as far from sleep as I could possibly be. I read someone describe the climax as being electrifying and that is just the perfect word. The last thirty minutes of that movie are maybe my all-time favourite scenes.

    A post-script journey through Philip Seymour Hoffman's lifetime in cinema.
    200 hours of work went into breaking down 47 of Hoffman's films. Compiling his legacy has been one of the most challenging experiences I've ever faced as an editor, and yet indescribably rewarding. I can assure you that after 22 years on screen and nearly fifty films, we now look at the work of an actor who never had a single dishonest moment on camera. I know because I've seen them all. Please take a breather and raise your glasses to one of our greatest.

    I don't think it drags so much as gb&u is the perfect encapsulation of a time and a place and a genre. A few dollars more is (in my opinion) the perfect western movie and gb&u is the perfect genre experience. It isn't edited as tightly or have as structured a narrative but it is huge and the highs are higher and the score builds to larger peaks and is a culmination of the two proceeding entries.

    so i saw The Wind Rises today

    in an interview hayao miyazaki basically said that he's retiring from filmmaking because he put in the maximum amount of effort he possibly could to make this movie, that this is his swan song

    after seeing it for myself i am inclined to agree

    do not hesitate to see this movie

    i was not expecting to be as blown away as i was by it, but it is seriously the culmination of his entire movie career
