Blood Simple 7/10.I've really been digging the Cohen brothers lately.
2  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / Re: How good is DYS? on: December 04, 2008, 06:11:39 PM
I just watched it for the first time.This movie is awesome.The themes of this movie are really valid right now.I love the opening scene.That tells you right then what this film was going to be about.The music was great.You can tell Leone was having fun on this one.I don't see this film as a lesser work.

Downfall-7/10 A German movie about the fall of Hitler and the Nazi party.If you really like WWII pictures you'll rate it higher.The best potrayal of Hitler I have ever seen,hands down.Sub-titled and available from netflix.

I love the whole tirade that Tuco spouts as Blondie is turning him in.You've just about named them all.When the Sheriff rolls up the wanted poster,"I can give you a good idea of wear to put it",and he tells Blondie."Your a son of a thousand fathers ,all bastards like you!."That was a pretty low one.And not only does Tuco think that Blondie's mother belongs in a two dollar whore house,but in the end he decides that she is such a whore that it's best not to even speak of her.haha.That whole scene always just amuses the hell out of me.

Dude,I love your post and this is a great one,but I disagree a bit.The dialogue in Deathproof is what everyone bitches about,but I didn't mind it.For instance when one of the characters gets her face shaved off,it shocked me a bit more,because I felt like I knew her a bit.In one scene with Stuntman Mike she turns out to be a good sport and I liked her for that.I like movies that build character.It's a rare thing today.I do agree that it was below par for him though.I just rewatched Pulp Fiction the other day and the dialogue is amazing in that film.
I also think your being a bit harsh on the car chase.I've never seen the movie in question that he ripped off,but I bet it was done as a homage and not meant to be a clear rip-off.I do agree he should point that out though.The car chase is what I wanted out of that film and I felt it delivered.Not a lot new,but the way it fit into the film with the tables being turned halfway through, it was very cool to me.
I just liked the whole concept of Grindhouse.I saw it in theaters,and while niether film was great,they were fun.A pretty good value too,in my opinion.

To be honest,I cared nothing for this movie,but after reading this thread and watching the trailer,I'm excited about it.

Rear Window-9/10

I'm discovering all these older films.

Well,he could have just been telling Tuco that to mess with him.Even if it's a continuity error,I just roll with it.I've seen worst.

To me,it's the Directors.They are just not that interesting anymore.When I first saw a Leone film I had been watching all the usual junk food movies,The Spider Mans,The X-Men,The Will Smith flicks.All these amazing special effects.Leone blew it all away.He said more about a character in one series of close-up shots than I've learnes about characters in entire movies.

Ok I searched far and wide for a thread to post this in and this is the closest I can find.I clicked on a link for Sergio Leone books and was surprised about how many there were.I really want to buy a couple.Which ones are the best for me?I'm relativily knew to Leone other than watching his films and reading his Wiki and Indb page and this board.I'm really more interested on the making of his films than his bio to be honest.Especially his "style".Also if I order from the link it'll help the site right?Thanks.

Hi Cole welcome aboard, one great thing about coming new to Leone and his Westerns is that you may notice something that hasn't come to light before, and that is always a pleasant surprise. Enjoy!

Cigar Joe,I just read in a screenwriting thread that your a fishing guide.That is so awesome.Talk about doing a job you love.I live in the deep south and I'm a huge outdoorsman.

Hmmm...I really found this topic interesting.I've never thought of SW as derogatory,but now I think it's unfair.What are some other famou SWs?Anyway I can't think of a more Iconic film than GBU.It's obvious that the critics of the time did not understand the brilliance of what Leone was doing.I wonder if there is a director today.......say,Eli Roth,who people just hate(including me) that will one day be vindicated.I hope not.haha
