    "I wasn't a huge fan of the extended version that came out in the 2014 trilogy blu-ray because of added scenes with the older voices of the original actors. When I got Kino Lorber's 2017 50th anniversary blu-ray of the original US theatrical cut I was expecting it would be of equal or better quality minus the added scenes. However, I can't say that's the case. I don't think the yellow tint in the 2014 version is terrible or all that distracting. In fact I never noticed it before, but it is noticeable when I compare it to the 2017 version. The contrast seems lighter in 2017 and the blacks aren't as black as in 2014. I am watching this with an Epson 3020 projector so the blacks may not be as crisp anyway, but there is a difference between 2014 and 2017 versions."

    "This is a Clint Eastwood classic for a reason. Anyone who is a fan of spaghetti westerns or classic action cinema has no excuse for not adding this to their collection! I first saw it as a child, and I grew up on old movies - to be frank, many of them put modern cinema to shame. Back when they couldn't CGI everything, actors had to really act and writers had to really write. Take a trip back to yesteryear with this classic!"

    "In the classic genre of spaghetti westerns, 'The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly,' stands as the best. Clint Eastwood plays a great action role against his on screen rival, Lee Van Cleef. Their race is for gold. In this movie strategy and cleverness take the main theme. A race for fortune against time will have you seating back in your chair with enjoyment."

    "When you think about the best cowboy movie, my mind goes straight to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. It is a perfect mix of graphic, realism, and a little far-fetched. Also, Clint Eastwood in 1967? This was perfect Clint. The plot is fantastic and keeps you on your toes through the entire thing, wondering what will happen until the end."

    "It's a very long film and it's not very exciting. It's an old film as well so there's not much to it but a good story and acting. So if you need something else other than that to think it's one of the best... then this wouldn't fit your criteria."
