Went to see the new mission impossible film last night. its not great. their are some great action sequences in it but its a cheese fest. it was a shame as it had some great chances but it always went for the safe option. shame.

just when you thought they couldn't get anymore insane.
the sequel is the maddest SW film i've seen to date. from the moment providence sentanced a man to death and blew cigar smoke that formed into a halo i knew it was a wild ride. not to mention the iceskating chase with milian dressed as a woman and the hurricane kid dressed as a bear (yes really) milian even sings and dances in this one. and of course the director comes from behind the camera to explain a scene when providence asked him.
milians performance is over the top but no more than the film. i honestly forgot i was watching milian and was watching providence. milian may be insane and bigheaded but he's also a genius actor.
the story is that providence falls in love and has a week to come up with enough money to give to the broke lady's father so they can be wed. sounds simple? you can bet your life its not.
if the title seq makes you laugh this film is for you. i loved it.

Other Films / La vita, a volte, รจ molto dura, vero Provvidenza? (1972)
« on: November 27, 2005, 04:59:48 AM »
ok banjo as promised the first film reviewed.

chaplin meets python meets cartoons in the west!
petroni's strange version of the west starring tomas milian. the narritive is simple providence (milian) has captured hurricane smith (gregg palmer) and claims the reward. then the whole film revolves around them trying to out do one another. its a comedy SW, their are silly bits that don't work but their are also really funny moments that do. milian really shows his comedy talents as a chaplin type. his visual humour and timing is 1st class. moments in this film made me laugh out loud. of course if helps if you have a drink. for those who like their SW serious then this is not for you.
i had heard a lot of bad thinks about this film, but i really enjoyed it. completely mad. great stuff... onto the sequel.

Other Films / tomas milian's west
« on: October 28, 2005, 12:10:11 AM »
Not a lot is said about the great Tomas. so i thought i would say something about his westerns.

The ugly ones- i've only just watched this one and as a first western and at nearly the start of his film career you can see the man's talent.

the big gundown- wow a great performance, hard to believe he had only made a few movies before this one. although his acting style doesn't gel as well with Van Cleef as say Nero. one of his great roles and a must for fans.

Death sentance- i've never seen this one. would like to hear from someone that has. (marco leone ? cigar joe?)

Django kill!- you love this film or you hate it. i love it, it's as mad as they come. says a lot about the uglyness about human beings. very reserved milian in this one.

Face to face- the best . milian and volante one good one bad roles change towards the end. william berger as well. a true classic go and buy it!!!

tepata- reminded me of Brando's 'viva zapata' tomas again is amazing. orson wells is very strange.

companeros- come on if you don't like this romp of a movie thiers something wrong. Milian and Nero great chemestry. you want more? how about Palance a scottish dope smoking wooden handed kestrel owning maniac. get it love it.

life is tough right provdence? - never seen this or the second one help marco!

sonny and jed- milian in the height of his fame. this movie doesn't work for me but i love tomas in it.

samuari- mad bad , just crazy. wallach as a sheriff, milian well how can i put it, you wouldn't be able to release this today.

four of the apocalypse- stange but great. milian is amazing as a keoma looking bad guy.

i would love to hear your views on milian and his movies..,

Other Films / William Berger
« on: September 25, 2005, 01:19:40 PM »
i've become quite a fan of William Berger. i loved him in keoma and face to face. lets face it as banjo in sabata he's fantastic.
but has anyone seen him in anything else western or not. if so was he any good and is the film worth a view?

Other Films / Lee Van Cleef
« on: April 15, 2005, 07:02:40 AM »
i know he's great in the Leone films but what are his best roles in other spag. westerns?
i only know a few of his roles, i do like the big gundown.

Other Films / Jonathan of the Bears aka Jonathan degli orsi (1993)
« on: February 02, 2005, 12:25:52 AM »
i watched Jonathan of the bears last night. this is a great movie its not as good as keoma, it has a more 1990's feel than a '70's ( wonder why!!) the story is very much like keoma but its also a bit like dances with wolves.
the flashbacks are really great, lots of strong referances about race and enviroment. really good spag. western camera angles to delight too!
is this the last spaghetti western ever made?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / TGTBATU is a prequel
« on: December 09, 2004, 04:25:23 AM »
Ok i'm new so i'm sorry if this has been said before. I only found out that TGTBATU is a prequel a few months ago. Thats why Clint doesn't get his poncho until the end. Has anyone else heard this or am i going over old ground.
