Once Upon A Time In The West / Re:U.S. DVD
« on: December 01, 2003, 10:26:45 PM »
Well, I got my copy Friday the 21st as a birthday present ... the hardest part was waiting three more days! That night I couldn't stand it, so I stayed up late to watch the opening at the train station -- one of cinema's greatest opening sequences ever.  Of course then I had to stay up a little longer so I could see Frank pop Timmy!  :-)  The next day I watched a few of the documentaries and then the movie itself.  Five glorious hours ... since then I've played everything but the commentaries, so I need to set more time aside.

I have waited so long for this DVD, and it is absolutely fantastic.  I'm a photographer, so I'm just savoring the gorgeous colors, Leone's awesome compositions -- now that I can see them in their true form again -- and all the incredible details of the close-ups.  (Morricone's music sounds better than ever, too.)  It is truly the greatest Western ever made, and Paramount has done a spectacular job.  

I finally had to register here, so I could share my excitement with those who can appreciate it!
