The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:the better western

How about this: GBU is the best Western, and OUATITW is the best Meta-Western. Will that keep everyone happy?

Fair enough...

Trust me, you won't regret it.

Tell me your feelings when you see this movie.

I finally watched City of God. Shorty you were right on the money on this one. This movie must be the best Brazilian movie I've ever seen( to be honest this is my first  :)) COG has everything good gagster flick has to have imo. Stunning visual,non stop action,maintaing cool...and socio message.The movie is very entertaining all the way but it gives a bit of scary cuz violence portrayed is somtimes too realistic.
I see the latent of Latin American movie and hope it's come out more often to the world.
Thanks again Shorty Larson for recommendation :)

Yes. I saw that too. Crowds gave big applaues when Bronson was on the screen. But how they ommited Rod Styger and James Corburn? That's shame.
On another note, I was shocked I didn't even noticed one of my favorite composer Micheal Kamen passed away. RIP :'(

The first movie I saw was "Duck you Sucker". I was 12 or 13, and I remember that when I saw the scene of the "dead sons" I cried like a baby. And it was the fault of that unbelievable score by Morricone.

I didn't even know who Morricone or Leone were. My father had 20 or 30 LP of Morricone and he made me listen to them. I discoverer, at the age of 13, the score of GBU.

I first discovered and loved Morricone in my life, and then, only then, Leone.

Many years later (last december) I bought and saw DYS again, on DVD, and the same scene made me cry, because of the music of course, but this time I've been able to really apreciate that perfect simbiosis between Leone's photography and sensibility and Morricone's music.

When I was 12 or 13 I was only care Spileberg and Bruce lee movies ;D It's no wonder you were very mature kid in terms of mental age.
When I first saw DYS I also deeply moved by beautiful score of maestro Morricone. I was almost burst tears everytime Sean's theme played. That particular soundtrack is  still one of my all time favorite movie score.

Thanks for insightful analysis. I particuraly agree that 'when it comes to politics, people don't agree, never' 'well, I don't agree, and I leave revolution in the hands of those who CAN kill other human beeings wihout any moral problem'

Great post Shorty! :)

Shorty What is your take on your fellow Argentinian Che? I just wonder if he got as much respect in his native country as in Europe.

Hey Shorty My favorite Belmondo-Delon movie is Bolsalino. You have any opinion on that?

You know the most popular Japanese author Murakami Haruki mentioned 'Red Dawn' several times in his essays as one of his favorite war movie?

I like it too :)

Happy Birthday Cigar Joe!!!

Dear Cigar Joe, my favourite drawer of LOTR is John Howe, and I would recommend, for example, these books that I have:

Absolutely gorgeous!

It is a good movie. Here in France it was presented as a "technological" movie, because of the special very good camera and photography visual effects.

The movie is based on a real legend of the XVIIIth century in France.

I recommend you another "technological" french movie, i guess it can be downloaded from Kazaa, Imesh or Edonkey (beware of spywares...): Vidocq with Gérard Dépardieu. Directed by Pitof, who was the man in charge of the visual effects in all the movies of Jean Pierre Jeunet (in my opinion, the best french director of the moment) like Alien 3.

It is the first movie shot in digital cameras, before Episode II.

Has to be seen, good movie.
I have Vidocq DVD. Even though movie itself is a bit lousy (sorry Shorty Larson ;D it's not really bad  though) picture quality presented in this movie is amazing(thanks to advanced HD camera technology) and probably the best I've ever seen.

Ok thanks, do you know if it was adapted from a novel or was it an original screenplay?

I believe Brotherhood of the wolf was written as original screenplay based on legend.

Rented this French DVD the other day, the movie was done pretty well, don't know the name of the director, though, maybe our french brothers can help.

ps, did he/she make any other films?

Brotherhood of the wolf made by French director Christophe Gans who made Japanese cartoon adaptation 'Crying Freeman' with Mark Dacascos.
