Filmmaker with a fiery passion for films

I had watched this film before via a P & S print on a UK network channel and didn't like it much. Last year I was bought it as a gift and it sat on my shelf, Then a week before I started a major job in December I sat down and watched it during my 'Leone week' and boy did I enjoy it. Despite the terrible 5.1 upmix and the supposed mis cues etc I really did enjoy this film. Still no where near my favourite Leone it was still a flawed yet excedingly enjoyable film that stayed with me quite a while afterwards. I want to thank all you guys with all your posts in this here section that helped persuade me to sit down and re-vist and this time enjoy this classic  :)

I never liked DYS as a kid because it wasn't FAFDM or GBU and its only relatively recently that i've come to love this as much as the Dollars trilogy.About the mix-sounds fine through my tv set,but through the speakers Morricones score sounds too harsh but as with the other SE's i love the surround sound which brings it EVEN MORE  to life ;)

This grew on me as well.
I would say it's my favorite.

I love surround sound too don't get me wrong but I tend to be a purist when it comes to original soundtracks so I would rather have the original mono tracks.

The equal of GBU, OUATITW and OUATIA, DYS repays repeated viewings. Given a full three-score-and-ten, I expect, in my lifetime, to watch it 100 times.



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

Apparently I'm the only one who liked it at first sight (and I saw it 3 times at the theatre, if I remember well).

I didn't like it when I was a kid because I couldn't watch Rod Steiger as a pandan to Tuco/Wallach.I liked Tuco way way more,it took me some time to start apreciating this movie.Now it's one of my favorites. O0
