1  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Is my reaction to the film normal for a first timer? on: June 06, 2009, 12:57:30 PM
I just watched this film for the first time last night. And it was well...different. The "dollars" trilogy and "once upon a time in america" I just understood the first time I saw them. And I knew exactly where they stood on my ranking of Sergio Leone films. when I first saw "Duck, You Sucker," I thought it was Leone's weakest. But after a second viewing I actually liked it even more than the first two "dollars" films.
But Once Upon a Time in the West..I just simply don't know what to think of it. Did I like it? Yes. It was an interesting film with the best soundtrack since TGTBATU and had a lot of emotion to it. But it was just so different, I don't know if I like it better or less than TGTBATU or OUATIA. I feel like I'm missing something from it. Maybe because it was so slow I wasn't paying as much attention during certain parts?  Possibly. Also I didn't catch on to the idea of Harmonica being a supernatural character. When he got up after being shot, I thought he was just wearing body armor or something like Clint in "Fistful of Dollars."
I plan on watching it again in a few days and may have more of an opinion after I sit on it for a while.

But what was your guys' initial reaction to the film after you first watched it?

If he was "death personified," then he wouldn't be human. If he wasn't human, he wouldn't have had a human brother or the human emotions to avenge him.
But I could be wrong.

Fistful of Welfare - Set in the Reagan-era, Will Smith stars in this thought provoking biopic about a poor black man who fights his greedy capitalistic society for more welfare to support his family, and his oppressed brothers across America.
5  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / This is the only Leone movie I haven't seen, is it really that good? on: May 12, 2009, 05:57:10 PM
I love all of his other films. I've read quite a few reviews saying its better than both GBU and Once Upon...America, but I have a hard time believing that.
What should I expect of the film. And which version of it should I get?

Will somebody PM me and tell me what happens in the desert scene? I've seen the newly released version and I don't know what part your talking about.
7  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / Question about a song in the movie not on the soundtrack on: May 10, 2009, 10:50:36 PM
one of my favorite tunes in the movie starts out with organ music and then has some choir chanting "da da da da da da da da" or something like that.

It's played in two scenes. The first is the part after John reveals his explosives expertise and it shows Juan mesmerized and "banco de nacional" (or something like that) over John's head.

The other part is after Juan gets Mesa Verde and sees an execution by firing squad. The song plays after the execution when Juan sees the bank.
Does anyone know where I can download this song?
