Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Iconic final scene, but rest of the movie is damn boring. The slow and melodic pace, typical of Leone and his westerns, puts you right to sleep.

Lots of weird dubbing issues, which makes more sense after learning the entire dialogue track was recorded in post. What language did they speak when it was being filmed? That piccolo motif gets obnoxious after a while.

Eastwood’s an interesting anti-hero. With a better story, he’d be a lot of fun to watch.
