Duck You Sucker

You know, I think I might like this more than The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. Discuss!

If I could find a copy of it I would…

“Duck You Sucker” aka a “Fistful of Dynamite” aka “Once Upon a Time in the Revolution” aka not available on dvd anymore aka available on laserdisc aka and shitty vhs.

A wonderful movie by a master but not better than the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. In reality, though, why compare or try and argue which is better? I mean, we could argue all day long whether or not Seven Samurai is better than Magnificent Seven because it is two different takes on the same thing - but arguing Leone versus Leone? You might as well start arguing on which version of The Man Who Knew Too Much was better or whether or not Once Upon a Time in America is better than Once Upon a Time in the West.

Just a thought. Shrug.

I can settle this one right now: it’s not.

No, it’s not, but that’s why I basically said “Comparing this stuff is useless.”

Now, if you want to say it’s not better than, I don’t know, Godfather 3, you and I can go 'round and 'round. :D

Wait a minute… why can’t you compare two movies by the same director? That’s fairly standard practice, isn’t it?

Of course you can but what’s the point in this case? It’d be like me creating a thread about “Rosemary’s Baby” and the only thing it contains is “You know, I think I like this far better than Chinatown. Discuss!”

What’s that trying to prove?

I think you guys misunderstood me. This is a discussion about why I like Duck You Sucker better than The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Apologies for any confusion.


Duck You Sucker is available on DVD in Europe, as a remastered collector’s edition with lots of extras.

Unfortunately, the film sucks just as much as its title. It marks the point where Leone felt that he was done with cowboy movies and needed to get all enlightened and artistic and meaningful and political. As it turned out, though, cowboy movies were really the only thing that Leone was capable of.

His artistic and philosophical inclinations made his first four works the best western movies ever made, but when he ditched the corset of the popular gunfighter saga there was nothing left worth watching. A sad, angry little man emerged whose ideas about humanity were no more sophisticated than what we saw in his Clint Eastwood and Charles Bronson caricatures, but now presented in a far less interesting and sometimes downright repulsive fashion.

So we got Duck You Sucker and Once Upon a Time in America, and for Leone’s sake we should better forget he ever made them.

Huahahahaha. You are bad at opinions.

So you like something more than something which wasn’t very good?

I haven’t seen Duck You Sucker, but I bought A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad and The Ugly all together and watched them recently. The first two were great, but the last seemed like it was missing the things which made the earlier ones any good.

My first guess was that “Duck you Sucker” is a Terence Hill movie, but I that turned out to be wrong.
I also thought the best part in The Good, Bad, Ugly was the intro song.

You Call me Trinity/Renegade is a good movie.
