The good, the bad and the ugly 43 percentage

I saw "The good, the bad and the ugly" starring Clint Eastwood this weekend. It’s a very good movie with the vintage cowboy aura, with even better teaser music. You got to see the movie just for the music even if Eastwood doesn't rivet you.

Incidentally, when I checked the review in IMDB, this movie figured in the all time top-100 list. On further checking, I noted that I've seen 43 of the all time top 100 movies, including all of the top 8 ones. It was a pleasant surprise coz I used to feel a bit intimidated when discussing about movies with some of my more movie-savvy classmates. Btw, if you beat this score, which I guess a lot of you would, leave your number. It’d serve as a benchmark for progress. :-)

Dude...I have seen 9 of the top 10. Shichinin no samurai is the only one left.

BTW, The good, The Bad and the ugly is a great movie. Lots of style and attitude in the movie.

Correction now: I've seen all the ones in the current top 10. One flew over Cuckoo's nest was initially in the top10, which now isn't. :)

@Bhaski: Not really sure its with him. Shawshank redemption is with him though.
