[quote=“Pacificador, post:26, topic:1664”]I gave it a 4/5 myself. I understand where the Rev is coming from in his post. There are a lot of SWs I’ve watched that struck a particular chord with me, despite the fact that they are not the “classics” of the genre. It’s my enjoyment of the film that gives it a higher rating than it ordinarily “should” because of it’s particular elements.
Filet mignon might be somewhat universally recognized as a delicacy however in the right frame of mind perhaps a meatball submarine sandwich is as welcome.
Nicely said, amigo!
I, too, think that these ratings should be done based upon one’s enjoyment of the film, regardless of the film’s cinematic importance, or what have you.
As most people here probably already know, THE GOOD THE BAD & THE UGLY isn’t in my Top 20 of favorite SW’s.
I know it is a great film and all, but I only gave it 4 out of 5 stars, because I just don’t enjoy it as much as I do other SW’s.
And I like your filet mignon comparison…dead on!
