Title: Corbucci's most remarkable spaghetti achievement
Post by: The Firecracker on May 03, 2006, 04:36:23 PM
There is not a doubt in my mind that "Django" was is greatest contribution to the genre. It was the most influential and probably the most memorable in his entire collection of spags. Making it his greatest achievement.

"Django" gets my vote.

If you notice I have left out Corbucci's "Johnny Oro",Minnesota Clay(good film), "Yellow the white and the black" and "What am I doing in the middle of the revoltion?".

I consider these to be "lesser" Corbucci films which tend not to be spaghetti westerns at all. So after cutting the fat away I have settled with the seven films in the poll.
If I am missing one that you think should be added please notify me.

Django is like his "Fistful of Dollars", "The Mercenary" is where all the puzzle pieces really fit together.

  For me, it's gotta be The Great Silence.  cigar joe made a good point about the process of making a couple movies.  While several of Corbucci's movies don't have the typical happy ending, TGS goes out farther than any other movie I've seen.  It took guts to make a movie like that, and to do it in such a different setting from most westerns.

  The Mercenary next, followed by Django.  Still waiting to see Hellbenders and Companeros.

Yes but  at the end of the day everybody will remember the man dragging the coffin rather than the man who has a train full of weapons.

  What do you mean "train full of weapons"?  I'm confused, Silence only used his Mauser pistol unless I'm missing some obvious joke here.  In that case, my bad.  :-[

I am sorry Tim. I used the wrong comparison. I used "The Swede"(Franco Nero) from Companeros who brings a train cart full of weapons.

I didnt realize you had not seen it until now.

Agreed you only have to look at the number of "sequels" that it inspired even if the majority of them are meant to be crap.
Hey Firecracker,shall i start a "Do you think What Am I Doing... should be in the vote" poll in revenge for CWC? ;)
Although not as good as The Mercenary and Companeros this is similar in style,and a big budget production filmed in Mexico this time.Its an enjoyable movie but i won't push the point! :)

I have only seen The Great Silence and Django... My vote goes without any doubt for Silence.... That was REALLY sthg more than an average spaghetti... Django was very desapointing for me.. The camerawork is terrible, so are the plot and the dialogues..... That's a shame because this movie had a great potential: I LOVE the idea of this guy going everywhere with a coffin...
Title: Re: Corbucci's most remarkable spaghetti achievement
Post by: Banjo on May 06, 2006, 05:08:17 PM
The only problem i had with any camera was the blooper where it appeared on film with cameraman behind the saloon bar-i actually find this amusing!
No doubt about it,it takes more than a suspect camera technique to make Django anything less than one of the best!
Title: Re: Corbucci's most remarkable spaghetti achievement
Post by: The Firecracker on May 06, 2006, 05:10:34 PM
I really cannot see much difference between how Django was shot and How "Silence" was shot. There is that rather statci camera shot in the beginning of Django when he is dragging the coffin. It would have been nice to make that scene more flashy. But the song propels you through the otherwise interesting premise.

Though Django may be Corbucci's best achievement, I must say the last 15 minutes of "The Specialist" is his master work!

I just got word that the official release for "The Specialist" will be september 20. No word yet on an english language track, which should be an improvement over the reconstruction dvd I have in Italian with translation problems, so lets keep our fingers crossed for a nice listenable english track.

This is a fine spaghetti. I would go as far as to say it is Corbucci's heavily flawed masterpiece.

Its bizzare I'll give it that much, especailly the last sequence where we see the distinct tower of a castle in the sunset background.

If it would have achored itself a bit more in reality it would have been great, but with the hippey's, the Mexican bandits in the glaciated mountians, the lack of big name actors, he might as well have set the whole story on the moon.

That last sequence with the castle basically says FU to me, you'd think he would respect his fans enough to redo that shot.

Oh well Corbiucci is an enigma to me.

big name actors dont make a film Joe.
And Mexican Bandits are always in a spaghetti western.
so what if its a weird film? I'd rather have some originality come my way a little more often in this genre any how.

and why are you complaining about the mountains now? I recall you enjoying them before.

The Castle didnt bother me. I didnt even notice it until the third viewing.

and you must admit the final gunfight with El Diablo's men and the grand finale was wonderful(whether you like the hippie kids or not).

I didn't say the mountians were bad, (I thought that was one of the best features of this film)  it was the Mexican bandits running around in the galciated mountians that were way out of place. I mean come on Corbucci, do a bit of research, thats not asking too much. The gang could just as easily been made a band of gringos.

Hellbenders might be able to beat it, depending on tastes.

"Che c'entriamo..." is also excellent. Certainly better then his last two westerns.

Well, it is strange you say so because, though I haven't see the movie yet, it features 2 actors of a kind which make me presume it was aimed exclusively at the domestic market. Though Gassman may have a little notoriety in USA, he wasn't famous for being an adventurous genre (least of all a Zapata western!) actor: he gave his best in comedies and dramatic movies. But I really can't imagine how Villaggio can result attractive to a foreign audience, though he was a brilliant (sometimes) comedian. That makes me curious about the movie itself.  I'll try to get a copy.

I thought Gassman was very good and very comical. His manic tantrums always made me laugh. Villaggio was the straight man and less likable.

So, I finally got DJANGO in the mail yesterday, I was very, very impressed.

Everything about it seemed to work, the opening scene just sets a marvelous tone for the film. The muddy path where Django drags his coffin along, coupled with that badass song  8), is one great opening. And, then next scene, really lets you know what your in for. Where a lady is being whipped by Mexican bandits, and is seemingly "saved" for the viewer to discover these "saviors" actually just want to burn her alive.

The only thing that i didn't like was the guy who dubbed Nero. He just didn't sound quite right to me. And also, there were a couple scenes where the English audio had dialogue that was just painful to watch, but when i watched it with Italian the dialogue those scenes were great.

It was great, and I have no complaint about the camerawork. It may be a little sloppy at times, but what the hell else do you expect from Corbucci, anyway? The three Corbucci films I've seen definitely had some sloppy camerawork at times.

As much as i enjoyed Django, and I don't think it uprooted The great Silence as my favorite non-Leone spag. However, when I see The Mercenary, I'll officially vote in this poll.

I'm glad you finally saw "Django". Real Corbucci touch, isn't it? This is so good that I have to wonder which is the best Corbucci either this or "The Great Silence".

Let us know what you think of "The Mercenary".
Title: Re: Corbucci's most remarkable spaghetti achievement
Post by: Silenzio on October 29, 2006, 10:09:23 AM
The Mercenary FINALLY arrived in the mail yesterday. I watched Compañeros that night and The Mercenary this morning. Wow, let me tell ya, the Mercenary was great. It's in my top three Non-Leones now, along with The Great Silence and Face to Face.

But, I think the Great Silence is a more "remarkable Spaghetti Achievement" than The Mercenary. I enjoy it more, and I think it's an all around better film. It gets my vote. It's the definitive spag in the sense that it turns every convention of the traditional western on its head. Revolvers become Mausers. The desert becomes the snow. It also takes the themes of Spaghetti Westerns and exaggerates them to an extreme point. Laconic gunslingers become mute gunslingers.

I'll probably leave my review of The Mercenary when I feel like writing more.

I have seen all the movies but The Specialist (or maybe I saw It but I don't remember). Although I liked a lot Django, Il Mercenario and The Great Silence, my vote goes to Compañeros (uncut edition). I think that movie deserves more credit that what it has been given in this forum. In any case, I think all four I mentioned are great movies.

Post by: Banjo on June 28, 2008, 12:20:05 PM
Companeros and The Mercenary are both fantastically entertaining sw's but in terms of "remarkable achievement" its easily Django for me.Both Great Silence and The Specialists carried on the style but still don't match up to the original.

I think GS is Corbucci's most notable achievement because of his willingness to violate all of the rules of, and thus transcend, the genre.

My favorite to watch though, is Companeros. I agree with Bandolero that it has been overlooked and in some cases unfairly maligned....

Yeah both Companeros & The Mercenary are too derivative of stuff like Bullet For The General to be considered"remarkable".

The shock downbeat ending in TGS was undoubtably unique for its time.

Its unfortunate that the cheesy happy ending lacks any audio though undeniably with this ending the movie would lose a great deal of its power.But i'd probably watch it more often if it did have the upbeat finale.Aren't i uncultured? ;D
