The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:bbfc GB&U 93 mins of extras

i probably should know this... but what is anamorphic wide screen? as opposed to normal wide screen.

Anamorphic is a 16:9 picture before it has been decoded into widescreen, on a 4:3 monitor it will appear stretched from top to bottom and squeezed left to right, if you select the 16:9 button on your monitor, hey presto, widescreen.
Widescreen televisions should automatically recognise anamorphic and switch accordingly.

Film Four showed Django, kill last night. I've never seen it before, but I was well impressed, not a great storyline, but well shot and well brutal.

Can someone tell me of one main actor that as
appeared in both of these directors movies?

Coburn I think.

I think most of Sams' films are brilliant, his bad films (apart from the odd exception) were only bad after the studios finished with them.

The Ballad of Cable Hogue was a brilliant and hilarious film, in fact Robards also worked with both directors.

if you read Peckinpahs' biography you will notice that there is not one mention of Leone, which I thought was strange as the two shared many similarities

City of God by far the best film of last year,

where did Peter Jackson go wrong.
Braindead was superb.

Robin Williams, good idea, saw One Hour Photo last week, brilliant.

Brad Pitt was a bad guy in Kalifornia (and a good one at that) but he'd be better as one of the gang that meets Harmonica off the train.

I'm usually a lurker on the board, but when I saw you mention Antonio Banderas for the part of harmonica, I wanted to give you a fistful of (lit) dynamite.

Banderas is one the worst actors in the history of cinema. The mere fact that people want to see him in more pictures is bad enough, the fact that some people equate him with Clint Eastwood is blasphemy, but for a Leone fan to want him to play the most important part in a remake of this film only confirms the fact that this country has gone to hell, and that this sentence is far too long.  

I agree, he was terrible in Once Upon a Time in Mexico (only Johnny Depp ,and my large cola with extra large salted popcorn, stopped me walking out of the cinema).

Raimi to direct, and Bruce Campbell as Frank.

they seem to shoot and edit on video then transfer the final cut onto film.
which is what they did with Once Upon a Time in Mexico, I must admit I wouldnt of noticed unless Garry hadnt of told me first.
presumably all this is to save cash on filmstock.
