Reel Rumbles #30: “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” vs. “The Good, the Bad, the Weird”

William Wasielewski

I was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and raised an hour north in Appleton, Wisconsin, a small metro area of about 250K people. Being raised in an area with a small town feel, yet a number of niche groups around, movies became a large part of my life. I started college in the fall of 2006 - attempting first a Journalism degree, then a Radio/TV/Film degree. Three years later, seven majors later, and $12,000 dollars in debt, I decided to drop out of school and pursued truck driving. A year and a half later, I deliver pizzas for a living and quietly work on a number of manuscripts I hope to have published one day (and I've never been happier).

    You mention the slow pace of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. That’s the one thing I thought when I watched the movie for the first time last year: It’s so SLOW. Perhaps I wasn’t in the right frame of mind when I watched it, or maybe it’s the fact that, in general, I have never loved Westerns. (I would call the 3:10 to Yuma remake my favorite Western, followed somewhat distantly by Eastwood’s Unforgiven. But then, I have not seen a lot of Westerns.)

    So, I didn’t love The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, but if The Good, the Bad and the Weird has more action to it, maybe I’d like it better…

    (Well, and I love Back to the Future Part III. Does that count as a Western…?) :)

    I got to see The Good, The Bad, The Weird at my club’s movie night in college. I have yet to see Leone’s film, it is on my to do list. There is a lot of action to it and it is well acted and directed. I especially like some of the twists at the end. It is worth checking out.
