Crowd seemed to enjoy themselves. Big applause when movie was over. I didn't like how the movie looked but it is good to see a nice-sized crowd come for, and enjoy, a Leone movie

I am walking down 53rd street with DJ now, I am typing as he is speaking; here is his opinion: "The colors were awful, the lighting was wrong (and the sound in MoMA was way too loud), flesh tones really bad, kinda yellow and orange. The whole movie looked kinda green. I kept thinking of Tarantino's comment that it looked like a DVD, i can see what he is talking about; in fact, IMO it looked more like a VHS tape. This is the worst of all the recent Leone restorations. Crowd was into it, that's good to see, lotsa laughs. Ripley's BRD is still the way to go."

There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.

Drink, I enjoyed our night out, even that crappy bar you dragged me to. I fell asleep on the train home, of course, but I was really glad I woke up in time for my stop. I could have ended up in CT.

Everybody, I found out that yesterday was Drink's birthday. And it was his 30th! So, what did this guy do to celebrate? He went to a Leone movie! In an actual cinema! Is he a true Leoneaste, or what?

Good on ya, mate. O0

Just watched the Ripley's BD again: although Eastwood is too florid at times, everything else about the image is admirable. The restoration they used for this disc was done in 2007. Everybody should have quit right there.

No, definitely not.
I left for about ten minutes in middle (from the Rojos' big "last supper" party until Silvanito gets beaten up at night in his cantina) but I didn't see any new footage. And I saw DJ snoozing for quite a while, so he missed some, too. I didn't wake him up cuz he wasn't missing much with the shitty color. Though I have no idea how he was able to sleep through such loud sound! That MoMA audio was BOOMING!

I always have to piss at least once during a movie. I drink way too much caffeine (not that I need it  ;) ) One of my goals when seeing a movie is not to have to leave to piss more than once. I succeeded with this one, though I stayed out a few extra minutes to live-blog the screening on the SLWB. Cuz I KNOW y'all couldn't wait to find out the colors  ;) And DJ falling asleep doesn't bother me he doesn't snore!
