The Good The Bad and The Ugly (1966)

Do I need to say more ? Yes, actually I do, because that's my job. Even thou i think everyone has seen this, or at least will once in their lives, I have some something to talk to anyway. Lets start by the point that this is an old western, so don't be surprised by over dramatic dialogs or deaths, that's just the way they rolled back then. And to say the truth, you get used to it in no time anyway. So i was sitting through them three hours and the key I noticed was probably the characters. Lets just go over that in few notes: There are three main characters, "Good", "Bad" and "Ugly" as their names state so they do. The whole beauty here lies in the fact that they are not  caged by that, the "bad" guy sometimes looks good, "good" guy does bad and all that jazz. So after seeing the movie and looking at the title you feel like your mind has been (emotionally) blown. Clint Eastwood has a great since of humor with everything he does, and that makes things ironic sometimes, and who does not love irony ? There is a problem with new movies, when the good guy is over powered , know everything, and does illogic physically  impossible things, where Blondie (Clint) is just lucky all the time. Sure, they all shoot short range revolvers with great accuracy in great distances, or even shoot ropes with great ease, but hey, as I stated before , this IS a western. Just to end this in a great line: I saw ZZ-tops on horses.
