The Good, The Bad, The Weird

How can we not endorse a movie where the "weird" guy seems to be the hero?

At least the the dude on the horse (43sec & 1:21) knows how to cock a rifle while riding at full tilt (unlike an American actor I've seen lately).

TGTBATU is actually an American remake of The Seven Samurai. A great old B/W flick if you can find it.

I assume you all caught the Wilhelm Scream when The Good knocks The Weird off his motorcycle.

And of course "The Magnificent Seven", tadchem.

It was a decent movie. I'm I lost a lot in translation. One thing I distinctly remember when watching this is that some horses were severely injured during the finale. The weird guy is Kang-ho Song, better known from the movie "The Host" which is also decent.

As for the Asian Western crossover thing there have been a few notables:

Sukiyaki Western Django - it has its moments and surprises.

The Warrior's Way - its in English but it has many Asian elements. This movie has been understated in my opinion. It is the most impressive of this weird genre and actually a remarkable film.
