The Good, the Bad, The Weird: a Blipview

Keeping with the meandering nature of this blogadoo. Today, I offer a nano movie review (a blipview).  Anyone who remembers Max Headroom should get the reference.
I am one who avoids reviews with synopses, so no worries, if you haven't seen the film, but plan to, I doubt my blipview will give anything away. I have been impressed by the risks taken lately by Asian cinema...

If you liked Stephen Chow's Kung Fu Hustle, then The Good, the Bad, The Weird by Kim Ji-woon is for you.

Three plates of double chocolate cinematic fudge.
Big screen and 5.1 surround: HIGHLY recommended.
Note: probably not a film for horse lovers or people who don’t enjoy watching other people in painfully painful--pain.
Bang, you’re dead.

This week's opening line...
I was twenty-three before I discovered the French were dead wrong about kissing.
