1  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Leeds International Film Festival showing on: November 11, 2008, 04:26:36 AM
Scoured the message board, can't see any reference to this.

Went to go and see an extended version of GBU at Leeds Town Hall last Friday. Only bits I hadn't seen were where Tuco has the chicken (?) and meets his bandoleros in the cave.

Anyone else see it, thought it was a pretty good print and enjoyable as always. Three-hour version I believe...
2  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: For UK viewers...GBU on TV on: December 30, 2007, 05:03:13 PM
GBU being shown on Five tonight in UK. But no widescreen. The cretins. Ive seen GBU on ITV (idiots), Channel 5 (idiots), and only the enlightened types on Channel 4 have shown it in widescreen. Bloody pan and scan.

alrite gents, been a while, got a job, that pretty much explains my absence, i feel culturally undernourished.

Anyway, im going to the rescheduled Morricone concert on Friday 1st December at Hammersmith, looking forward to it, just hope the great man doesnt cancel this time.!!!

Just to clarify, who from this board is going to the Friday show at the Apollo???

5  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / "Just as long as you're the commandant..." on: August 07, 2006, 04:32:54 AM
Hi all, does anyone know the name of the actor who plays the Union Commandant in Betterville Camp, the one to whom Angel-Eyes says "Just as long as you're the commandant..."

Btw, we all know the Union Captain at the bridge is Aldo Giuffre, i dont mean him.

7  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Ecstasy of Gold remix on: May 22, 2006, 06:02:01 AM
Wotcha.

Just wondered if anyone knew who was behind the Ecstasy of Gold remix. Its played widely on adverts and other "scenes of suspension" on British TV, as you'd expect from a Morricone-Leone score.

i think u guys are missing the point somewhat. To me the points seems to be its not as black and white as the good winning and the bad losing, after the Dollars Trilogy its always something of a pyhrric victory: Harmonica has no place in the world, Juan's lost his whole family, and Noodles is a withered old man with his memories. I think Leone's message is winning, but at a huge cost.
9  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: defend gbu on: May 05, 2006, 10:59:47 AM
unforgiven is definitely overrated and not in the same league as GBU. end of story. lol
10  Other/Miscellaneous / Ennio Morricone / Re: Ennio Morricone 19/7/06 London Concert on: May 05, 2006, 10:55:00 AM
mmm, the problem is that Leone had a different composer for The Colossus of Rhodes, his first film, Angelo Francisco Lavagnino. Cant remember how shoddy the score was tho...


Have just got a new cd of Morricone`s work with the director Tornatore, who is also an excellent director (Cinema Paradiso, Legend of 1900 etc) Got me thinking that Morricone`s best work albeit arguably and i do not want to upset anyone was with Leone. they seemed to share a certain intangible understanding, having said that his stuff for Tornatore is top drawer. Other  directors seem to stick with one composer also Speilberg/Williams, Lynch/Badalamenti and our own Neil Jordan with Elliot Goldenthal. What  do members think of these special relationships and can one imagine anyone else other than Morricone working with Leone?
11  Other/Miscellaneous / Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Barry Lyndon (1975) on: April 29, 2006, 05:01:28 PM
Yeah this is one of my favourite films. i agree it does drag slightly and the acting isnt great in places, but as a spectacle its wonderful. interestingly, one of my dads friends was the costume designer (though if anyone had any illusions no my familys not part  of a trendy movie crowd!!).

The music is very Morricone, and the shootouts are good as well, tho not IMO on a par with Leone's (though the reviewer on this website thinks Lyndon's are better)..
12  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Cheyenne is Mexican? on: April 29, 2006, 04:56:40 PM
The character Manuel 'Cheyenne' Gutierrez was clearly intemded to be Mexican, i would argue when Robards played him that idea was shelved pretty swiftly as he is clearly not mexican. the only allusion i can think of is the references to Catholicism but that could mean anything.
13  Films of Sergio Leone / The Colossus of Rhodes / Re: Colossus of Rhodes on: April 21, 2006, 03:06:00 PM
i would imagine theres a simple reason why Colossus of Rhodes hasnt got a section; because its dogshite.
14  General Information / General Discussion / Re: Morricone vs Morrissey on: April 21, 2006, 02:49:51 PM
yeah i do think Moz (Morrissey) is a bit patchy, i like Your Arsenal and Vauxhall and I but dont think his other stuffs much cop, as they say.

Yeah u cant really beat The Smiths 2 b honest. Well, actually u can. Ennio Morricone!
15  General Information / General Discussion / Morricone vs Morrissey on: April 20, 2006, 07:16:10 PM
Has anyone heard Ennio's contribution to Morrissey's new album, Ringleader of the Tormentors?

Morricone provides orchestration on 'Dear God Please Help Me', but i havent heard it in full ye, despite being a Smiths fan.
