1  Films of Sergio Leone / Once Upon A Time In The West / So why did Armonica bring along Cheyenne's body? on: May 04, 2005, 10:03:25 AM
You can get to see Armonica carrying around Cheyenne's body at the very end of the movie, and I do wonder, why did he do so?

Some my personnal hypothesis is that Cheyenne could still be alive, I know that will sound like wishful thinking, but didnt he say ''I dont want you to be there when I die?''...and well, Armonica did stay beside him...so maybe, just maybe Cheyenne only passed out and Armonica took him along to go and get a doctor. And the wound didnt seem that bad...a kidney shot, oh my bad.

or

He was pretty much dead meat, but Armonica decided to take along his corpse in order to
A) Bury him
B) Get the money for bringing him to the sherrif
C) Use him as a prop to scare away crows and girls.

Well that would explain a lot, but again, why and how did Sentenza and Blondie knew eachother to begin with?
4  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Sentenzais quite different from Mortimer... where did he flush his morality? on: April 19, 2005, 12:45:04 PM
I was shocked when I saw for the first time For a few Dollars More a few days ago.

For one thing buggers me a lot, I have realized that that Douglas Mortimer, brilliantly interpreted by Lee Van Cleef isnt quite the violent and cruel Sentenza from The Good the Bad and the Ugly.

Now, I know that in facts, it's supposed to be the same character, and the fact that Sentenza and Blondie know/fear eachother is quite convincing in that way.
But there is the drastic moral change that Sentenza has deal with in GBU. I mean, sure Mortimer didnt mind killing people, but it was for a right cause in it's way. All he wanted was to avenge his sister, he didnt even took the money in the end.
But Sentenza in the other hand, he's greedy and cruel. He doesnt mind killing anyone in his way or getting a few more bucks. His whole bloody investigation, having Tuco tortured, even having his own gang of hired outlaws...that's soewhat not Mortimer's style I thought.

Anyways, thoughts on this?

Oh dammit Warwick, thanks for the news, but this is realling annoying.
I mean, all that crap that gets released everydays...I even seen Dallas on DVD (the TV series), what a load of sh..., this kind of crap isnt even worth beign made, so why do they make a DVD out of it when a masterpiece like Once Upon a Time ... The Revolution gets delayed, postponed and maybe even canceled...there is no justice and I hate sony, a lot.
6  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / One thing that came to my mind while looking at the Mexican General. on: April 12, 2005, 05:34:08 PM
That Mexican General who ends up shooting Sean to agony and then gets shot shot and re-shot by Juan.
He looks a lot like a german WW2 officer.
This face, he sure doesnt looks like a mexican, and that egg he eats plus when he brushes his theets...theses are just details, but I cant help myself but to think he's some kind of Nazi...
Now of course at the time WW2 was still a thing to come and the Nazi party wasnt even established...but...

8  Films of Sergio Leone / The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / This movie is about Tuco. on: April 12, 2005, 05:15:45 PM
That's how I see it.
I mean, sure Clint Does get a lot of scenes, but isnt the real main protagonist Tuco?

He gets to be the first character introduced, we also get to see most of the story from his ''viewpoint'' including scenes featuring him alone dealing with the ways of his life. Mentionning of course when he meets his brother, when he deals with ''that guy who lost a arm'', when he tries to keep Blondie alive, when he finds the cimetary, when he escapes from the train and a few more.

Of all the three main character, he seems to be the most defined, and unlike Blondie and Sentenza (Angel Eyes) his fate isnt sealed from the start. Blondie is the heroic good guy figure, no doubt he is bound to survive, and as for Sentanza, he's evil and it's a safe bet that he'll end up with a few extra holes. But Tuco...could we really tell? I mean, it's pretty much ambigious, he's a good guy with bad ways I dare say, but still he got close to dying a bit too much for my mind to rest a peace about his safety.

All in all, I believe the real main protagonist of The Good, The Bad and ''The Brute'' is Tuco.

To me it's a tie between Sean Mallowy and Noodles.
Man dont forget Noodles, he's so weird, traumatised in a way, and to add to the complexity, we get a life portrait of him, from child to senior.
11  Films of Sergio Leone / Duck, You Sucker / My favorite movie of all time...I want it on dvd or I'll rob my video store! on: April 10, 2005, 04:04:16 PM
I've rented this beatiful piece of art last year, I was (and still am) 17 by then, and I actually found myself facing the best thing since Monty Python.
Oh the surprise! Oh the enchantement!
I was so pleased by the beauty of this masterpiece that I've rented it several times again, so far 7 times to be more accurate...but it isnt quite enough
I want it to be mine, all mine, my precioussss movie...!

So actually I went to the video store and asked if they were selling the VHS copy I had rented so many times.
Hitler would have been proud of the hatred I felt for that greedy monstrous hideous clerk that refused my offers...thus said, I still dont have that pretty little masterpiece and I'm starting to feel in need of a new dose...

So my hopes are that one day someone very smart will port it here in america on DVD so I'll finally be eable to reunite with my heart's dearness.
Any news of a potential DVD release here in ze North America?
Because If I dont get to buy this movie soon I think I'll go frantic and rob that damn video store.

During that scene when Juan is holding his gun pointed at the president-figure in the train, and then, kill him.
The music is absolutly beautiful, sad and melancholic.
I need it.
