Other Films / Spoof westerns as training films
« on: July 21, 2005, 02:11:58 AM »
I was watching 'Nobody's The Greatest' (aka The Genius) last night with my two kids (boy and girl 8 & 5). They sat through the entire 117minutes without complaint and i remembered back to my childhood and how I saw a lot of Terence Hill and Bud Spencer films. Most of these are utter rubbish in every way, but fun for kids because of the cartoon violence - but the better western spoofs (My Name is Nobody, Nobody's the Greatest, They Call Me Trinity etc) are actually very well crafted films, benefitting from crew memebers who worked on Leone's greats (Simi, Morricone, Valerri  etc).
It struck me that these films could be very useful in turning young people on to a wider experience of film, more than the diet of animated blockbusters they are served these days ever will.

If you have kids, get a copy of Nobody, or Trinity and see for yourself.
