Staying home this weekend and watching DVDs.
The weather is supposed to royally suck this weekend and unless you already have tickets to SIFF I suggest just staying home and watching any number of DVDs that came out this week.
Personally, I am going to make a big batch of spaghetti and meatballs and get fat watching The Sergio Leone Anthology, which includes remastered, full-length cuts of Leone’s three Clint Eastwood westerns: A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and his lesser known James Coburn-Rod Steiger western, Duck, You Sucker (aka A Fistful of Dynamite).
This eight-disc set comes with 10 hours of extras including every deleted scene that has survived, interviews with surviving cast and crew members, period advertising, and recent visits to the locations that were used 40 years ago. Add Leone’s two-disc deluxe version of his 1968 masterpiece Once Upon a Time in the West that came out a few years ago and you have a solid 25 hours of Anglo-Italian goodness.
