31  Films of Sergio Leone / Other Films / Re: "Deadwood" (2004-2006) on: September 24, 2010, 01:29:07 PM
Thought you might enjoy this:

Someone visited Melody Ranch where the deadwood set is still standing.

"All the sets seem to be, though a bit rough and seasoned, ready to be called back into action. I have seen auctions of some of the costumes, though.
there is once picture of E.B.'s hotel in that set, and it looks like they filled in the part Hearst smashed out with a window and changed the roofline (there used to be a more elaborate circular splay of wood feature up there too)."

The searchers(1956)
John Ford's best? It's certainly the only one I've seen of his that I've really enjoyed. Monument Valley never looked better.
Only thing that bothered me was some of the acting, very overly dramatic. Guess that was normal back then.
I watched the collector's edition and the image quality was amazing for such an old movie.

Is this the one Scorcese was behind?

Ok but you know what I mean. Is it likely that a mexican would make rank?

Would a mexican have been able to make officer in the yankee army?

Haven't seen this in years but can't remember any twins. Any bad acting might be because most of the roles are filled by local samii people. The movie was also shot in temperatures as low as -47c.
According to wikipedia they had brought in stuntmen from the latest James Bond movie at the time but they refused to work when they realized what condition they'd work in Smiley

The movie is available for streaming:

Good news. Someone has done the work of syncing up the english audio to the Mondo bluray. The bad news is that it's the restored audio only. I think the original mono track is too short to fill the italian theatrical. Of course you could convert the 5.1 audio to mono and fill in the gaps that way. But for now this is the most convenient option we got:

And I must say, judging by that picture, the italian release looks 10 times better

Hmm that's interesting. I always thought that ugly greyness was part of the original print.
Italian one looks great. Is the mgm picture a product of digital noise reduction you think?

Speaking of superheroes without superpowers:

Took me two days to finish this movie. I thought was a pretty uninteresting both in story and characters. The customes and spacecraft looks horribly dated. The hand to hand combat was nothing special. The blue man was kinda cool but for a lab experiment gone wrong I find Hulk more entertaining.
Even with back-stories none of the characters really had any depth and the story was a mess. Seriously I hope this Znyder guy stops making movies and perhaps goes into commercials or music videos instead. He don't seem to handle full length pictures very well. 300 with all it's style and painting-like photography was a failure as well, a 2 hour long violence pornography with laughable attempts at a plot.
No more please.

Yup Armstrong it was.
It played just fine, no problems.
My only complaint would be that the booklet was in german, you wrote something lengthy about Sam in it but I don't understand a word of it lol.

I found this movie by chance and I had strangely never heard of it. I'm sure it was never in cinemas around these parts. Its' pretty good for a sci-fi as I normally can't stand this genre. Once a certain plotpoint is revealed it gets a little bit predictable but there's still some surprises.
An impressive feat for the actor too. I've never seen him before and he is pretty much alone the whole movie with a challenging role.

I downloaded a downscaled version of the bluray release. It looks pretty good, but don't expect too much. Unless you have a large tv you won't see that much difference other than a slightly sharper image and no pixelation whatsoever. I think this is as good as it will ever get.
