I accidentally started doing this marathon without reading the thread! I'm only up to The GB&U right now.  These movies are getting exponentially longer, I hope that trend stops or I'm going to have a problem finding so much time to watch them.  Not really a back-to-back kind of marathon, eh?

I chose to split my viewing of Once Upon A Time In The West into two sittings. It helped a lot.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly - by 27th July
The marathon seems to be slowing down. any reason for this?
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

I'm going to do Duck, You Sucker! this weekend.  Then I'll watch it again with the Christopher Frayling commentary and do a full-on DVD review of that film.  It's going to be epic just like my other Leone reviews.

They let me communicate with my kind for a few minutes everyday though :). Hi! I'll post about Once Upon a Time in the West and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly sometime next week.

Aww.. I prefered the thought that you escaped their evil clutches by kicking all ass. Or facing them off in an arthouse films quiz.

I was really lucky to have VIP Membership to the Autry Museum because in July of 2005 they had the "Once Upon A Time In Italy... The Westerns of Sergio Leone" exhibit. I was absolutely amazing. I went on opening night got to see amazing exhibits; documentaries, props, amazing posters, costumes and I got my book "Once Upon a Time in Italy" signed by Sir Christopher Frayling. YAY! Then later at night there was a battle; giant puppets of Blondie, Tuco and Angel Eyes (if I find the pictures I will post them) doing the mexican standoff scene. So cool.

The next day I was able to see Alessandro Alessandroni (who did the whistling in a number of Leone's movies like Fistful, For a Few, and Once Upon a Time in the West) perform live at the Autry. I think I have a video somewhere which I'll try to find and link as well.

Sorry to brag but I'm still excited I was able to attend.
