Am I the only one who likes Once Upon a Time in the West more than The Good, the Bad and the Ugly?

It's just the superior film. It has a better, more dynamic plot. It broke more rules, it took more risks and it wasn't anywhere near as slow. The Good, the Bad and the Ugly hasn't aged terribly well. It's filled with plot holes and a bunch of 60s tropes that bog it down. It's by no stretch of the imagination a bad film, but it isn't quite the masterpiece everyone makes it out to be. That label belongs to the aforementioned film. Am I the only one who thinks this way? It seems that I am. While we're all at it, care to explain why The Good, the Bad and the Ugly is considered to be so good? It's really just a 7 out of 10 for me.

    All Leone movies have good/bad points. "Fistful of dollars", first, based on "Yojimba", established the "Man with no name" character. "For a few dollars more" developed the character, TGTBTU finalised him. OUATITW appeals to a different genre.Not "better" just different. Leone put different pathos in some than others. Like, "Duck, You Sucker !" he said had his greatest character development. Much allusion to Mussolini and Hitler . OUATIA was Far different--the Mafia. No, I didnt like it.

    Not at all, its a far better film

    Henry Fonda's performance is better than the entire cast of Good, Bad and The Ugly

    We all have different opinions. I prefer TG,TB&TU. I liked OUATITW, but not nearly as much.

    Just because you like it better doesn't mean it's the better movie or that other people have to agree with you.

      That's hardly the point, is it? I said I like OUaTitW more and gave an explanation why. I was expecting the same from a commenter, but instead I get a guy who uses the "openions r difrent" rationale.

      And you didn't even answer the question. A simple yes or no would have sufficed.
