    I say Fury Road is the best Mad Max movie, as essentially the good version of Road Warrior. Road Warrior itself is too goofy for me, and Max himself is just wandering into someone else’s story (Fury Road lets Furiosa be a protagonist). The original Mad Max is a cheap, nasty revenge film and I dig it more than its sequel. Beyond Thunderdome is, of course, the worst of the series.

  2. Man, I watched all the Eastwood (and John Wayne…and Gary Cooper…we watched a lot of westerns) westerns with my old man when I was a kid, and this was most definitely my favorite Leone. I got really pumped to watch The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly after watching For a Few Dollars More, especially considering that I thought The Good, the Bad, and Huckleberry Hound was awesome. I had a similar reaction to you guys–it felt too long and just didn’t have that For a Few Dollars More zing…like Leone added all those extra minutes just because he could. For a Few Dollars More is absolutely perfect, and I’m so glad you played the “I generally smoke just after I eat. Why don’t you come back in about ten minutes?” clip. I thought that was the coolest thing I ever heard, to where I’d hope I’d get in a fight at school just to pull it out beforehand. Lee Van Cleef had such a great voice. And of course, the movie only got better as I got older, and could get a lot more of the nuances. Heh, like, as you pointed out, what Indio was smoking…
    Also, Kino Lorber went all out. Gracious.

      I had forgotten about the “I usually smoke after I eat” bit from the last time I had seen the film. So great!
