I picked up this discounted spaghetti western DVD collection years ago on a
lark, but never got around to checking it out. This offers 44 movies on 11 disks
(two to a side on double-sided disks), so I knew the audio/video quality would
be iffy at best. I checked some of this out yesterday, and while it had its
entertainment value, I was soon struck by how I would much rather be re-watching
Once Upon a Time in the West
. This is probably my all-time favorite
western, and it'd been a while, so the re-viewing turned out to be a great call.
And now I see that today is the 35th anniversary of the release of
back in 1982. Like OUATITW, this is probably my favorite film
of its genre (romantic comedy, duh!), so I'm going to re-watch this one in
celebration. Maybe this will kick off a favorite movie binge.
