1  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: GBU Remake on: April 09, 2005, 02:16:14 AM

hmm... interesting terminology. Il Tramonto... are you homophobic?

Haha, no. It's just a term that us cool kids nowadays use to describe something that is bad or "sucks." My apologies to any homosexual members that had to read that.

3  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: GBU Remake on: March 28, 2005, 11:23:35 AM
I came up with an idea a long time ago where QT would direct a semi-remake with John Travolta as The Good, Steve Buscemi as The Ugly, and Harvey Keitel/Samuel L. Jackson as The Bad....and they find out about a briefcase with a shitload of cash in it and either go around from warehouse to warehouse in L.A. looking for it or go to some Caribbean Island somewhere or something retarded like that

but anything else would be gay

to Il Tramonto:
I do believe Hana-Bi is Kitano's masterpiece. It's far more esthetic than Sonatine, and has a better story in my humble opinion. Sonatine is funnier though...

Artistically I could see why people call Hana-Bi Kitano's best, but to me the whole film was like watching a painting in motion. That's not a bad thing, but I just felt like I couldn't really connect with the characters and that everything was being done more for "art" instead of some deep message. I do think Sonatine should have had the guys playing around on the island for maybe 10 more minutes or so, but this is probably the Kitano movie that's had a heaviest impact on me so far. Still haven't seen Dolls, Boiling Point, or Violent Cop though.

He's also going to be in the upcoming movie The Motorcycle Diaries, about a time in Che Guevera's life before he became a Revolutionary. And that looks very interesting. While I thought the 2nd and 3rd story in Amores Perros were pretty good, I absolutely loved the first part. I kinda wish that the whole movie would have just been that one story.

Yes I thought of High Plains Drifter when I saw that, and Omar Sharif's first scene in Lawrence Of Arabia.

I was more reminded of the flashbacks with Henry Fonda's character walking through the desert in Once Upon a Time in the West.

And I think it's bullshit how people brush QT's fans as just being "idiot fanboys" because certain people enjoy his work and find his movies entertaining, and they don't. No I don't think QT is God; one of the main reasons I like him (as a person) so much is that he just seems like some normal guy that knows a whole lot about different genres of film and just loves to discuss movies in general. I'm a "fan" of his first three films, but I'm practically obsessed with Kill Bill. That and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly are tied for being my favorite film of all time. If you don't like QT and/or his films, fine. But don't condescend to those that actually do like him and his films just because you have a different opinion.

The opening carriage scene of Fistful of Dynamite was inspired by Luis Bunuel's The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeouse. Anybody seen this film? It sounds very interesting.

Kids Return, Empire Strikes Back, Donnie Darko, Iron Monkey, 2001. Nice. About 5 or so of the movies on your list are in my top 10 favorite movies. Takeshi Kitano is one of my new favorite directors, but I have to disagree with everybody that Hana-Bi is his masterpiece. I think Sonatine is his best film personally, but my favorite of his is (if not Sonatine), Brother or Kids Return.

Yeah, I know. All i'm saying is that I thought V2 would have more of a SW influence. That doesn't make it any less of a movie though, imo.
