This is out of those I have seen.

Once Upon a Time in America – 5 Stars (My all time favourite)
Once Upon a Time in the West – 5 Stars
The Good the Bad and the Ugly – 5 Stars
For a Few Dollars More – 4 1/2 Stars
A Fistful of Dollars – 4 Stars
A Fistful of Dynamite – 3 1/2 Stars

Still to see:
The Colossus of Rhodes

If any director has ever made me want to make films it is Leone, his films, especially his latest ones, have such scope to them that makes me so inspired and truly makes me want to make films just like his. Every film I’ve seen of his is a masterpiece in it’s own right and I think that each is very important to cinematic history (except for For a Few Dollars More perhaps), A Fistful of Dollars made spaghetti westerns popular, The Good the Bad and the Ugly redefined the genre, Once Upon a Time in the West improved The Good the Bad and the Ugly and formed the first really intelligent western (in my opinion) and his final film Once Upon a Time in America, which I consider the finest ever made, broke so many boundaries that I had never seen broken, it is the only perfect film.
This man is a genius!
