Av Room: For A Few Dollars More Blu-ray

10 November 2011 7:49 AM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

For A Few Dollars More Blu-ray MGM Home Entertainment 1965/Rated R/Running Time 132 mins List Price: $16.99 – Now Available   Sergio Leone had to ditch Akira Kursawa's template to truly become a great auteur. And so it wasn't until 1965's For a Few Dollars More that Leone refined himself. There a trio of main characters was birthed, and so was the more temperate pacing, along with the Mexican standoff with three gunsligers in an arena squaring off against each other.

Blu-Ray Review: MGM Rides Into Town With Classic Westerns

18 August 2011 3:09 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Chicago – Westerns are regularly “called up” to HD Blu-ray at two times during the year — Father’s Day and Christmas. It’s logical in a marketing sense that Clint Eastwood would dominate new release shelves during the seasons where dear old dad is likely to get a gift, but it leaves the rest of the year as barren as a ghost town. MGM has a little summer gift for fans of alpha males going through withdrawal — four classics of the genre hitting Blu-ray this month — “A Fistful of Dollars,” “For a Few Dollars More,” “The Magnificent Seven,” and “Return of the Magnificent Seven.”

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

As influential and enjoyable as John Sturges’ “The Magnificent Seven” is for a lot of viewers, my preferences in the quartet would side with the Sergio Leone & Clint Eastwood collaborations every time. I love the Man With No Name and the style that Leone brought to his filmography. »
