Although I know many love it, I’ve never been a big fan of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. In fact the only film I really enjoy out of the “Man with No Name” trilogy is the second film – For a Few Dollars More. For my money Sergio Leone‘s best western, and his best film, is Once Upon a Time in the West.

Co-written by Leone’s longtime partner Sergio Donati, Once Upon a Time in the West is a love letter to the mythology of the Old West and more than thirty American Westerns Leone had deep affection (several of which are referenced throughout the film including High Noon, 3:10 to Yuma, The Searchers, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Iron Horse, and The Magnificent Seven).

The film’s long sequences, slow pacing, and lack of dialogue may put off some viewers, but those with patience to see a great film unfold slowly before their eyes should give this one a long look. The tension Leone is able to build in these sequences is amazing. In a film like Once Upon a Time in the West the sequences between the showdowns and gun fights are as, if not more, important than the “payoff” scenes.

This is German DJ and musician ATB‘s slightly NSFW-ish music video for “Could You Believe” from Sunset Beach DJ Session. If you’ve got a couple of hours to crawl down a rabbit hole to listen to the crazy, you can check out the YouTube comments diatribes concerning the video’s content. Or you could just enjoy two beautiful woman undressing each other and enjoying each other’s company.

The Mechanic

Remakes, Hollywood’s second favorite shortcut (after sequels) for quickly churning out mediocre flicks. If I have seen the original 1972 film with Charles Bronson and Jan-Michael Vincent I don’t remember it. And there’s nothing in the remake that makes me think I’ve missed anything.

This version stars Jason Statham as hitman Arthur Bishop who takes on the son (Ben Foster) of a old friend (Donald Sutherland) he was forced to kill.

As action flicks go this version by director Simon West is average at best. There’s plenty of poor decision making and plot holes where the story is sacrificed for more action scenes. I also found the film’s main villain (played by Tony Goldwyn) to be rather bland. His near limitless supply of generic soldiers are even less memorable than he is. If a movie is only as good as its villain The Mechanic is pretty damn forgettable.

ReImagine - The Game

Reimagine: The Game

You know what today needs? It needs a mindless webgame that will leave you weeping in the corner, confused (and possibly aroused, you sick bastards). Thankfully there is such a game! nutcasenightmare has given unto an unwilling world the majesty that is Reimagine: The Game. Half platform freakout, and half traipse through every 4Chan/Reddit meme of the last 18 months, Reimagine kinda kicked my brain’s ass’s brain.

Which means it’s perfect for a post-holiday Tuesday, yes?

Get some. Get some hard.

I would just like to point out that, no matter how bad your day may be, you live in a world in which this happened.

And that, my friends, is fucking awesome.
