Other Films / "Pedernales Pass" .... My new Western short film

Off-Topic Discussion / RIP Bob Clark ......
« on: April 04, 2007, 10:09:45 PM »

Bob Clark waved his fist at respectability and chose the path of true entertainment. His dynamic filmmaking encompassed everything from beloved family features like A CHRISTMAS STORY to dick-in-the-wall masterpiece PORKY'S. He was also responsible for horror standards as untouchable as CHILDREN SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH DEAD THINGS, the vastly underappreciated DEATHDREAM and the original BLACK CHRISTMAS. Though not everyone stood behind his later work like BABY GENIUSES 2: SUPERBABIES, it displayed a level of recognizable innovation that was consistent throughout his varied career.

 Though he was primarily regarded as a director, he also wrote and produced several of his films, and even stripped down to his nothin's for a eyebrow-raising scene in PORKY'S 2. Clark was a professional without being a boring adult, and for that, we salute him.

 Bob Clark, 67, and his 22-year-old son Ariel were killed by a drunk driver late last night. The offending motorist was taken to the hospital with only minor injuries. Please, if you really must drink and drive, kindly run into a tree and spare the world this type of tragedy.


Director: Kim Ji-woon (A Quiet Family, A Tale Of Two Sisters, A Bittersweet Life, 3 Extremes)
Cast: Lee Byung-hun (JSA, A Bittersweet Life, Bungeejumping Of Their Own), Jung Woo-sung (Daisy, Musa), and last but not the least Song Kang-ho (too many to mention... awesome guy).

Budget: $10 million

Plot: The movie set in Manchuria during the early 1900s, building off a string of Korean genre films from the 1970s that combined the aesthetics of the Western with outlaw movements aligned against Japanese colonial forces. Jung will play the good guy, a bounty hunter; while Lee will take the role of the bad guy, a hired gun- and swordsman; and Song will play the weird guy, a train robber who rides a motorcycle instead of a horse.

Other Films / Two new Asian/Spaghetti Westerns?
« on: November 30, 2006, 12:51:26 AM »
Hola Amigos,
Its been awhile, but I've got some interesting news to discuss.
Dont know if anyone has talked about this on here yet but I thought that it might be of interest.

After sitting on a shelf for five years, Wisit Sasanatieng's Thai action film "Tears of the Black Tiger" will be finally released in the U.S. by Magnolia Pictures reports the trades.

The studio picked up all domestic rights to the acclaimed "Tiger" from Miramax, which bought the rights to the film in North America, Latin America and South America after the Cannes Film Festival in 2001.

The spaghetti Western-style "Tiger" tracks Dum, a gunslinger who falls for a high-society woman but finds his gang and her father are set on keeping them apart.

The film was digitally tinted with pastel colors, giving it a unique look. The film will get a January release in New York, followed by a platform rollout in February and March.

This is the other film that has been a buzz

Japanese director Takashi Miike is making the first "sushi western" entitled "Sukiyaki Western Django" for Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The director has talked close friend Quentin Tarantino into appearing as a 'mystery man' in the $6.8 million English-language movie, a homage to the spaghetti westerns of the 1960's.

The story follows the clashes between two rival gangs in a 19th century setting that will blend US and Japanese archetypes. Hideaki Itoh, Kaori Momoi, Koji Sato and Yoshino Kimura star.

Filming began this weekend at the Syonai Movie Studio in Yamagata Prefecture, northern Japan. Tarantino is scheduled to visit Japan later this month to film his scenes. The film will get released late 2007."

Other Films / Gunfight at Red Sands aka Duello nel Texas (1963)
« on: October 20, 2005, 10:21:48 PM »
Anyone here ever seen this early SW titled Duello Nel Texas AKA Gunfight at Redsands.
From 1963, it stars Richard Harrison and Aldo Sambrell and has some good reviews on IMDB.
I found a 16mm film print and was wondering if anyone here can recommend this film before I drop a fistful of duckets on it.

Here are some cool shots of the screening presented by the Alamo Drafthouse.

Sergio Leone News / Eli Wallach live in person for GBU in Austin!
« on: September 19, 2005, 12:39:51 PM »
Hey guys!
Anyone living in the Austin area has to come to this screening at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas on Friday, October 28, 2005
My friends, this is the reason that the Drafthouse is the coolest theater in the world.
First off the owner Tim League is a huge SW fan, so he brings in SW's and has all you can eat spaghetti while you watch the films.
Then he brings us out to Monument Valley for a screening of his favorite film OUATITW.
Now, he brings us the man himself, TUCO!

Dont miss it!
