“The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” (1966)
by Sergio Leone.
Hey, I’m Tulip. Every once in a while, when I can get rid of Jesse and Cassidy and just fucking stop thinking about this messed up world, I like to grab a beer, settle down and watch a movie. An old one, you know. The kind that reminds me of movie nights with Jesse when we were kids, running around in our pajamas, pretending to be lawful cowboys. Huh. Things change, shit happens. It still warms my heart, though.
One of my favorite movies is The Good, the Bad and the Ugly. I remember Jesse saying Blondie’s lines while we were watching it. Now we’re driving around, looking for God. I’d rather be chasing a bag of money. I feel like this movie ended up being a little to close to my reality. Hell, now that Cassidy has joined us, we even became the Unholy Trinity. I wonder who’s who.
What I like about this movie is the lonely spirit of the characters, teaming up only because of a common goal, but perfectly understanding each other’s personality. That’s what makes the best teammates, in my opinion. I think the message of the story is “never fucking trust anybody” and “keep your damn mouth shut”. Of course, you also can’t help but enjoy the dirt of the desert sand, the burning sun, the gleam of the guns, the cliché outfits, and those awesome lines. “You see, in this world, there is two kinds of people, my friend: those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.” Always be the one with the loaded gun, that’s my rule.
Also, young Clint Eastwood is hot.
Keep your mouth shut and kick ass.
