I was perusing FutureShop the other day and came across a Blu-Ray pack of the Man With No Name trilogy for $29.99, which seemed like a pretty good deal, since the same store had a Blu-Ray of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly for $19.99.

Anyway, this is about as good as a bog-standard Western gets, I think - by which I mean, it's pretty much a distilled gunfighter story without really any themes or characterization. The movie made Clint Eastwood a star, and you can see why, because even with the preceding issues, he always commands your attention and is fun to watch.
