But it made me laugh how Gene Hackman was a good heavy in this, yet a few years earlier he almost didn't do Unforgiven because he was tired of all the violence in movies? (according to Eastwood)

Obviously he wanted to work with a genius like Sam Raimi.

It is certainly not the worst W around. I can tell you that.

Yes, not a very good one, but far from being worse. 5 or maybe 6/10 for this one

Maybe I haven't seen enough (bad) Westerns. Or maybe I just had a tough time handling the violence, considering it was the first Western I ever saw. (I actually had a real tough time handling the violence in FOD the first time I saw it; specifically, the massacre of the Baxters. I could understand one killing or two, but I couldn't understand how anyone could enjoy a film in which the whole town seems miserable and everyone ends up dead. I did a complete 360 by the second viewing  Wink )

haha yeah. I was channeling my inner George Costanza when I said 360. But why'd it take you nine and a half months to figure that out?  Wink

Because I read this was the only western you had seen before Leone and didn't remember which movie it was as the italian title is much different (and I never saw the complete film). So opened up the thread and read it. And got the kick of making that observation before somebody else might make a novel out of it.
