My Thoughts

A Fistful of Dollars is Sergio Leone's take on Kurusawa's Yojimbo, except set in Mexico in the 1800s. This movie kicked off the Spaghetti Western sub-genre and was the first in the "Man With No Name" trilogy of westerns, all starring Clint Eastwood.

This was my first watch on Bluray and it presents the movie in probably as good a quality as you'll ever see it. Certainly leaps and bounds ahead of all the TV viewings I've ever watched of it.

The DTS soundtrack is wondrous, with Ennio Morricone's score lighting up my surround system.

The print isn't perfect, but I think the Bluray transfer does a damned good job of it.

Can't wait to watch the other two in the trilogy!
