Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Praying Mantis Eats Hummingbird!

We have yet to do a movie in which a giant insect is giant and lives peacefully side by side with humans. Sure, there might be some friction over a gardening implement borrowed and not returned but they work it out. Or at least a giant anything who just minds his own business and doesn't get in anyone's way.

What about Clifford the big red dog?

He drinks from the well in the opening scene of Fo$. I think he is later shown drinking at the Rojo's party, saying something like "You heard Ramon, let's all have a good time!"

I'm pretty sure he drinks whiskey with Mortimer when they decide to team up after the hat-shooting scene.

I can't think of a single scene where he eats though...

I suppose you guys haven't heard about the Southern European paper shortage of the mid-to-late 60s? It was because of the damn hippies. As a result, Cinecitta only had 3 wanted posters to go round.

I must have been 10, 12 I don't remember which. It was Christmas Eve, and Back to the Future III was on, and that has a little clip of Fo$ in it.

I think I was must have been all of 21 by the time I actually saw the whole film (Fo$, not BttF3). Took me a few viewings to really get into them though. There was no leaping-out-of-the-seat-wow-this-is-amazing moment for me I'm afraid.

Or feel sorry for the old man in FFDM with the opposable chin.

Hahaha! Brilliant description. I bet he can open beercans with his face.

They should've got him to play the young Indio in the FFDM flashbacks...

Oh, I know I should have something better to do, but the work on my site keeps me away from those other jobs (decorating etc) hehe.

I'd love to vote in those polls, but I really can't bear the thought of you having to live in an undecorated house.

- OUTA is a gangster film, set in New York during the 20s, 30s and the 60s. The plot is incredibly complex and multi-layered, but essentially it revolves around a Jewish gangster's guilt over having got his closest friends killed during a bank raid.

- It is the end product of the experimentation with flashbacks that Leone was developing in his earlier films, being more or less entirely flashback or flash-forward - it is set partly during the main character's childhood, partly in his adulthood and partly in his old age.

- It is generally considered Leone's most complex, intelligent and painstakingly thought out film. It is also incredibly long - getting on for four hours. Like his earlier films it's still very watchable and well-paced though.

- It is a lot less stylised than earlier Leone films - no tense duels or snappy montages. It is also in many ways a lot more mature than his earlier films - no over-the-top heroism, and it deals very frankly and confidently with sex. As it is set in cities obviously there are none of the sweeping landscapes, although there are still some beautiful cityscape shots.

- There's still a lot in common with the Leone westerns - a kind of surrelistic dreamy atmosphere; hard-hitting violence; a slow, deliberate pace. The Leone obsessions with time and male friendships are more apparent than ever.

One thing that everything seems to find is OUTA grows on you. Most people don't like it on first viewing, but eventually love it the 4th or 5th time round. It's well worth the effort if you ask me.

I just realised Groggy's original post specified they were supposed to be from Westerns. I was wondering why my list had a significantly higher awesomeness quota than everyone elses.... I'll have to do a rethink.

Sounds good Belkin... I've only seen him in Adventures of Robin Hood, but I like him a lot, and want to see more of his films. He also has to have one of the most bizarre life stories in all of cinema. According to the IMDb mini-bio:

In his late teens he set out to find gold, but instead found a series of short lived odd jobs. Information is sketchy, but the positions of police constable, sanitation engineer, treasure hunter, sheep castrator, shipmaster for hire, fisherman, and soldier seem to be among his more reputable career choices.

And that's before he became an actor!

I heard one of the cut scenes features Deborah revealing she is pregnant, and in the background you can hear "There may be trouble ahead".
