The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: GBU Modern day location tour video
« on: January 13, 2008, 12:38:42 PM »
Wow, that was absolutely incredible! :D

Do you live in Spain? It must have taken quite some time to collect and put all this together. I've been wanting to visit some of the key locations myself, I just hope the new GBU book is finished soon as that might help in planning a trip or two. Do you have any GPS-coordinates for the locations? This thing was so good it should be released as bonus material on a new GBU DVD/blueray/HD-DVD or whatever the next big thing is. O0

I went there with about 30 members from StreamingSoundtracks.com. Unfortunately I never got to hook up with anyone from this site. :'( But for all I know we might have bumped into each other at the concert. A friend and I came all the way from Norway to experience this, and being the first trip to the US and getting to see Morricone made it quite special. Here's some pics:


During the concert


Right after the concert


The lobby after the concert


Outside of Radio City Music Hall after the concert


Times Square. There was a little rain on the second day, apart from that we had blue skies all the time.
It was pretty darn cold though, and I'm from Norway ???


Fun pic: Just strolling down Mott street while thinking about Noodles & co.
(Picture is actually from Pell st. looking south into Doyers st. Mott st. is 20 meters to our right)

PS: I've posted a few location photos from OUTIA in this thread.

I was reading about this new Google-feature called Street View. Basically they have collected pictures from certain locations and made it possible to navigate through them, kinda like walking step-by-step with the ability to look around. So I decided to check out this location and found it. Now you can see for yourself and have a walk around the block. Click on the picture and you'll be able to use the arrows to look right/left and move back/forward. + and - zooms in and out. Turn right on Water Street (Right in front of you and take another step right on Adams street and you're at the arch as well.) Have fun! O0

As some of the other members of this board I attended the recent Morricone concert in New York City. I met with almost 30 people from another website. That combined with the fact that this was my first visit to the US and a long way to travel made me stay for an entire week. One of the things me and four of my friends did was to hunt down some of those famous movie locations. On day four, Sunday feb 4th, we took the subway across to Brooklyn and made our way down to Water st. to try and find the exact loaction Leone had used in OUATIA. It was really cold and windy that day and the sun was bright, making the streets very dark in the shots. I did some photoshopping though to even it out a bit.

Click images to enlarge:


This is pretty much the exact shot used for cover art and poster (Which is hanging in my bedroom 8))



That's me in the blue jacket in the place of Dominic.



The archway Bugsy was walking through.

It sure was nice to finally get to visit this place and it was really grand to stand there looking up at that beautiful bridge. I also went down to Chinatown and strolled through Mott street just to be able to say "Hey, I've been there!" when watching the movie. ;D There's really something special about NY and I'm definitely going back some time soon. Hope you enjoy the pictures!

He said that there's already a crowd of Morricone fans booked.

Is that true? Sucker, that sucks!  ;)

I dont know about Virgils's, but at Daniela's Trattoria we will be almost 30 listeners from StreamingSoundtracks.com. Two of us are coming all the way from Norway, two from Sweden and probably some others from Europe 8) I guess I am a key figure there so on the day of the concert I will be busy from 9am to whenever the hotel bar closes. :D However, I will be arriving on Feb 1st and staying for one week, so if you are planning any activities other than on the day of the concert I might tag along.  O0

It's been a long time since I had the chance to read the forums here, but now that I do, I'm thrilled to see some of you are going to the concert! I am going with a friend all the way from Norway. As some of you know I am a big Morricone (and Leone!) fan and love film music in general. I will be meeting a lot of listeners and fellow fans from an internet radio station called StreamingSoundtracks.com that I'm helping run. It would be awesome if I could meet some of you too. :D  I have two DVDs of his previous concerts and for those of you who haven't seen the Maestro in action, I can promise you this will be a memory for life!  ;D

Other Films / Re: Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970)
« on: January 30, 2006, 05:17:26 PM »
And as for the guns comment, Hogan does use 2 guns, his rifle to blow the bridge with the help of Sister Sara and his ever-trusty pistol.

That might explain it. On the cover of my DVD (which I bought in sweden) "guns" is translated to "pistols". Obviously that would then be wrong. ;D

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: GBU soundtrack inconsistncy?
« on: January 29, 2006, 11:00:04 AM »
Guys, you need the complete soundtrack. there, you will find a total of 21 tracks, the last one called "IL Triello" The Trio last 7:14 Minutes. I have it and really don't regret it.¬  http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005EF9Y/002-1670679-9613663?v=glance&n=5174

 The only track really missing in this one is a track called "The last partnership", but a good fellow here gave it to us in MP3 and I've included it in the complete edition

Now that you've called me by name... ;D

There isn't much music in "The Last Partnership" but  there are quite a few other tracks that I'm still missing from an official release. If you're gonna get the expanded 21 track release make sure you get the one from GDM (2001) which is the one in Denys' link. ;)

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Henry Fonda
« on: January 12, 2006, 01:45:59 PM »
Hey guys, had a question for you?  Obviously Henry Fonda is a great actor and Once Upon a Time in the West is one of his best performances, but what other movies did you like him in?  I saw 12 Angry Men, and he was very good in that, but yeah, what other movies do ya'll like with him?

I absolutely agree with you. Fonda is becoming one of my favorite actors right up there with Eastwood and De Niro ;D If you enjoyed "12 Angry Men" I recommend John Fords "Young Mr Lincoln" (starring a really young Mr Ford :D). Just like "12 Angry Men" the plot is a trial and many points are made that makes you think. An awesome and sometimes funny performance by Fonda.

Fonda has one of the most awesome voices I know of, and he is really good at talking in this movie. I just gotta quote a scene from this movie that made me laugh so hard it hurt:

[spoiler alert!]

Lincoln: You say your name is J. Palmer Cass?
Cass: Yea.
Lincoln: What's the J stand for?
Cass: John.
Lincoln: Anybody ever called you a Jack?
Cass: Um, yes...
Lincoln: Why J. Palmer Cass? Why not John P. Cass?
Cass: Um, I dont know...
Lincoln: Anything the matter with John P?
Cass: No, but...
Lincoln: Has J. Palmer Cass anything to conceal?
Cass: No!
Lincoln: Then what do you part your name in the middle for?
Cass: I got the right to call myself anything I please as long as it's my own name
Lincoln: Well if it's all the same to you I'll just call you Jack Cass.

*Court breaks into laughter, judge bangs hammer and restores order, trial moves on*

*20 seconds later the judge starts laughing and says:*

Judge: Jackass! I just got it!

*Court breaks out in laughter again*

 ;D ;D ;D

Duck, You Sucker / Re: Theme song
« on: January 07, 2006, 03:16:25 PM »
The British folk are lucky, I'm from across the pond and we still haven't got any Duck You Sucker DVD or the special edition DVDs of FOD and FAFDM.

1. Get yourself a region-free DVD-player (Or crack the one you have ;D)

2. Contact or aquire a friend/relative on this side of the pond and have them help you out with stuff like this.

This is what I've had to do. No customs, trade organization or studio is able to prevent me from enjoying the art of movies, especially Leone movies ;)

Sorry for going a bit off-topic.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Question about Soundtrack
« on: January 06, 2006, 03:33:45 AM »
Hi Ruger Lady (Interesting nick by the way, though I'm more of a Remington guy myself ;D)

I couldn't quite make out which scene you were referring to, but noticed in your post in the general discussion that it was the music playing during the shootout between Frank and Harmonica. As far as I know this track hasn't been officially released in it's full lenght.

I have what I think is a bootleg of this score, including the track you are looking for. Like in the movie you can hear the young Frank saying "Keep your loving brother happy" and an amazing gunshot at the end, so it's probably recorded from a DVD or something.
