Did anyone see this film?  I thought it was a very fun one, I mean the Leone influence was dripping of it...  The film is some kind of a guilty pleasure.

probably the best western since the early 70's, but what else would you expect from Sam Raimi...

It's a must for Leone lovers...  It is like the ultimate western-clichéd ... euh... western.  Angel Eyes, you could be right...

Raimi is a master of his art, a genre crossing maestro...

but I haven't seen Spiderman but I'm sure it's good...

Also a Raimi fan
Also a comic book fan

SPIDERMAN was a fun way to waste 2 hours

As a rough guess I've seen roughly 300 westerns

QUICK AND THE DEAD was one of the worst westerns I've ever seen in my over 40 years of film viewing.

A valued opinion from a veteran of over 300 westerns.

I just love a film that can have a rubbish story, be full of cliches and still has you glued to the screen trying to guess where Raimi strapped the camera for the next action shot.
It is very tongue in cheek and doesnt want to be taken as a serious western, in fact makes no attempt at being serious.
But I do know where your coming from Visitor.
But give me Quick and the Dead over Tombstone or Unforgiven any day.

  I'm not a big fan of Raimi (Spider-Man's okay but overrated IMO), and I'm a huge Leone fan (what else would I be doing here?  Wink ). Anyway, I don't like this film at all - too much of Sharon Stone and Leonardo DiCaprio spoiled it for me.  It was good to see Gene Hackman and Woody Strode (his last role, I believe), and even Russel Crowe - just didn't really like the balance of the film.

I must admit back when this movie came out I had no idea about it and ended up watching it on my girlfriends couch at the time and really enjoyed it that night but everytime I've watched it since then I think of it as a cheap rip off of alot of great westerns... Embarrassed

I think that was the big idea of the movie.  Ok, it's not a Leone film, but maybe we filmfreaks forget to just have fun when watching a movie.  Not everything has to be analyzed, and I think you got to see every film in its own perspective.  But I respect and understand your opinion.

I certainly know how the have fun watching movies.  There are numerous films that I like or even love that will have no major impact on the history of cinema - both "Mummy" films, "Star Wars: Episode I" (HATED "Episode II", BTW), "MST3K: The Movie", "GoldenEye" (but you could've guessed that, right?  Wink), and even Grade Z films like "Prince of Space" (that Krankor gets me every time - screw MST3K, I want the film itself!).  I just don't like TQATD, though I think I elaborated on that pretty well.  I did like certain scenes (like the fight between Russel Crowe and the Indian guy), but as a whole the film rather disappointed me.

Anybody seen this one?

I saw it several years ago, and last night I watched a few minutes of it on TV. It's worse than I remember it to be.

I couldn't help but think, "How did they get all those big stars to be in such a horrible movie?"

Is the movie supposed to be taken as a serious attempt as a (Spaghetti) western? Obviously, Leone's work was an influence.
