Other Films / Re: Obscure/Less known SW's that you liked
« on: March 25, 2006, 12:28:41 AM »
I watched three of them this evening. WANTED started off a bit cliche but picked up nicely after the first twenty minutes or so. Lots of fist fights in this one although Gemma doesn't do anything overly fancy as in some of his other oaters such as DAY OF ANGER, ONE SILVER DOLLAR or ARIZONA COLT. THE FORGOTTEN PISTOLERO was excellent and deserving of classic status. Of the few Ferdinando Baldi films I've seen this is definitely the best. This film has everything-great action, suspense, a well done soundtrack, romance and plot twists. The music I was looking for from the RDR soundtrack is to be found here. The cast to my knowledge, other than Luciana Paluzzi, is made up of mostly unknowns or bit players. There are some absolutely stunning beauties in this film as well. It's a shame this film doesn't have more recognition. Highly recommended. MINNESOTA CLAY was average at best. I put off seeing this for a long time. Cameron Mitchell who does a decent enough job appears tired and uncomfortable. There is also very little in Corbuccis direction that eludes to things to come in his directing career. This Shoarma Digital version does not have the ending where he dies. Towards the end the film reverts to italian dialog with subtitles. I did notice several dubbed voices that can be heard on various Hanna Barbera cartoon shows. I haven't seen BLINDMAN but it will probably be one of my next purchases. I emailed Tony Simonelli about Franco Cleef doing english versions(more affordably priced ones at that) of the japanese discs xploited offers and he said he would ask him so maybe these will appear somewhere down the road.

I'm not certain about the exact amount of minutes missing but I read in an issue of Video Watchdog that it was indeed missing some footage. I'll have to dig it out and find the article. BTW Firecracker, I got JOHNNY YUMA/BETWEEN GOD, THE DEVIL, & A WINCHESTER, THE FORGOTTEN PISTOLERO, WANTED(Guliano Gemma-don't know the real title of this one. It's from Germany), MINNESOTA CLAY and CALIFORNIA in the mail today. How do you rate these in your opinion?

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: The Italian DVD Scene Extensions
« on: March 23, 2006, 10:05:51 AM »
Does the italian dvd have the complete finale music playing over the end credits? Many purists were upset that Paramount did not fix this when they were doing the restoration. There was a major article about this in an issue of Video Watchdog(I have the issue somewhere)and Paramount has since been made aware of the screw up. Don't know if the problem has been fixed though.

This is for Firecracker- you may already know but BULLET FOR SANDOVAL is available widescreen from VCI who also put out ANY GUN CAN PLAY, FIND A PLACE TO DIE, TODAY WE KILL, TOMORROW WE DIE and THE STRANGERS GUNDOWN(DJANGO THE BASTARD). Supposedly the DVD of BUULET FOR SANDOVAL is missing some 15 or 20 minutes. Don't know if that's true or not. The box does erroneously mention that Lucio Fulci co-directed the film.

Other Films / Re: Match-ups that never happened
« on: March 23, 2006, 09:50:33 AM »
I'd like to see one with all the great characters in one big extravaganza-Nero as Django, Lee Van Cleef and Gianni Garko as Sabata and Sartana respectively(these two would make a great duo what with Van Cleef's assured menace and Garko's magician gunslinger schtick), Guiliano Gemma as Ringo(or any number of his character roles) Milian as Cuchillo, along with the Blindman and Zorro(I think there was a Django vs. Zorro movie but not sure). It could be a MAGNIFICENT SEVEN style movie and Kinski, Luigi Pistilli and Fernando Sancho could be the villains.

At least one track was composed by Morricone exclusively for the game. Some of the tracks present are from DJANGO, GET A COFFIN READY, STRANGER IN TOWN,
BULLET FOR THE GENERAL and HAVE A GOOD FUNERAL MY FRIEND, SARTANA WILL PAY to name a few.

Nearly all 50 of the Spaghetti Westerns I have purchased have come from xploitedcinema(ordered 6 more last night). I can't afford the 50 dollar price tag for the Japanese discs as there DVDs are the highest in the world. There jobs pay really well over there. I've seen some of these offered on ebay but was curious about the quality. I tried to bid on a copy of PISTOL FOR RINGO but the screen kept saying I was being outbid. I'll check out ebay for the others I'm looking for. Thanks Firecracker.

Does anyone know where I can find decent quality english copies of the following Spaghetti Westerns-
PISTOL FOR RINGO
RETURN OF RINGO
ADIOS RINGO
FOR A ROOF A SKY FULL'O STARS
CEMETERY WITHOUT CROSSES
RUTHLESS FOUR
AND GOD SAID TO CAIN
SARTANA KILLS THEM ALL
NAVAJO JOE
FACE TO FACE
There's probably some I'm leaving out but this is all I can think of at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The first SABATA has a slight edge over the first SARTANA film although the SABATA sequels lost a bit of the first films quality and fun factor while the SARTANA sequels, the Garko ones at least, got better.

General Discussion / Re: Klaus Kinski Westerns
« on: March 16, 2006, 11:52:12 PM »
I have his biography and he referred to the script of RAIDERS as crap but took the role in the film VENOM instead because it paid more. If you can find a copy all Kinski fans should read it as it's a riot. He only took the western roles that paid the most money. Those were his only reasons for doing any of them. To quote from his book he says of the italian westerns-"Westerns, one after another they got shittier and shittier and the directors got lousier and lousier." I've seen eight on your list. Which films besides SHOOT THE LIVING PRAY FOR THE DEAD and THE GREAT SILENCE does Kinski have a major role in?

Other Films / The most disappointing Spaghetti Western
« on: March 16, 2006, 11:37:24 PM »
I was curious if anyone had ever heard about a particular spaghetti oater that piqued there interest but upon seeing it, was let down by it. For me two that come to mind are FIVE MAN ARMY-another italian MAGNIFICENT SEVEN/THE PROFESSIONALS clone that has a promising plot but no payoff at the end. You expect the five men to take on the entire army at the end and it never happens. Peter Graves is really good in this along with Bud Spencer(using his real voice) and Tetsuro Tamba, a major star in Japanese Samurai-Action films. Don Taylor is credited as the sole director although the box and literary sources say Dario Argento also co-directed. Another disappointment IMO is DJANGO THE BASTARD(The Strangers Gundown). Obviously HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER owes alot to this film, somewhat of a horror western. Coming from Sergio Garrone, the director of several nasty nazi movies I expected this to have a grittier tone, unless I have a cut version. In this film Django fights for the South but I believe in the original DJANGO he was a Union soldier. I also have A STRANGER IN TOWN and THE STRANGER RETURNS with Anthony Steffen but haven't watched them yet.

I really enjoyed this as well but saw RMR before I saw TBG and I don't think it matters which one you see first as the tone is drastically different between the two films. I also enjoyed Donald O'brien's character in this one and felt he could have held his own with heavyweights like Van Cleef and Gemma if given more opportunities. I have the Soundtrack to RMR and oddly the title track is sung by a different singer.

I have a portion of some of the tracks on various compilation discs but one I'm most curious about I think Morricone composed for the game itself.  A portion of the track contains an instrumental spag version of "Oh give me a home"(I think that's the name of it). Also is anyone else here Shaw Brothers fans? There's a track I'm looking for that's played on many a Shaw as well as indy kung fu movies. A couple of the Shaw films it can be heard on are HEROIC ONES and MONKEY KUNG FU(not the indy MONKEY KUNG FU with the DAY OF ANGER music). I've been curious about what spaghetti this music was cribbed from for years although it could just be library music but it sounds like it is from an italian western.

Hello all, I'm new here and am sure this has already been covered before but does anyone know how to download the soundtrack from RDR possibly from the game itself or if it's available anywhere? Any help would be much appreciated.
