Well i had a great time yesterday.Got to shake Nero's hand and got him to sign the book which btw looks massively brilliant-it took me the whole train journey home just to glance through the hundreds of illustrations.

The book signing session was followed by Nero appearing onstage to receive a lifetime achievement award and to discuss the sw genre in general.After which he received questions from members of the audience filling us in with some hilarious anectotes(including a tense encounter between muscle posing Charles Bronson with equally musclebound Enzo Castellari(who initially Nero found to be very odd and didn't want to work with!),working with Telly Savales on Redneck,UFO's on the set of THe MERCENARY,how really it was he who directed ("the director was always on the phone for money")ENTER THE NINJA for which he forgoed starring in VICTOR/VICTORIA with Julie Andrews ).He was charming,very funny and displayed an incredible memory with his answers.

Nero confirmed that himself and Castellari are working on THE ANGEL,THE UGLY & THE WISE but did not go into further details apart from mentioning that Tarantino has agreed to play a cameo.Nero is aware of talk that Tarantino wants him to reciprocate in DJANGO UNCHAINED but he hasn't yet asked Nero personally so he cannot confirm any role at present.

And to cap all that i got to see DJANGO on the big screen! Afro

No English soundtrack.What a complete washout! Angry

For anyone that wants a decent print of  the uncut version with a reasonable English audio then this appears to be the best way to go:-

Very colourful,fun,actioned packed Mario Bava comic book adaptation with a killer Morricone soundtrack.

9 out of 10  Afro

Cool, ask what's up with the new Spaghetti Western they were trying to make if you get the chance.

Yes CJ i'm very keen to find out about this if i do get the chance. Wink

Just booked my ticket to see a London screening of Django at the Covent Garden Odean on Saturday 28th May.This will be precluded by an onstage interview with Franco Nero who will also introduce the film as well as signing copies of Kevin Grant's new SW book for which he has contributed the foreword:-

apparently only a DVD will be released, but I'm not sure.


Suits me(i don't care for bluray anyway,especially for old movies where difference is negligable)just so long as the English audio is good throughout and that it's uncut.

Definitely one of my top 10 sw's and Sollima's best!

Whenever it finally emerges it really does look promising now with talk of a "dual format" and at the uncut length of 107 minutes. Cheesy

The Blood on Satan's Claw (1970) A couple of extremely pretty girls makes this recommended viewing. The rape scene is very well made. But I think it suffers from lack of a strong male lead (Cushing should have played the judge)   and from a too long running time. I don't like open air horror, I much prefer the great Hammer sets. Still the plot is good and so I give it 7\10.

A fantastic movie and Patrick Wymark is very powerful as the avenging puritan IMO.Surprised you never mentioned the wonderful film score Titoli?

Just ordered this from Amazon which it seems includes a chapter on Italian crime thrillers as long as the one on sw's. Smiley

BTW THE BOSS is one of my favourites and includes Henry Silva's best performance that i've seen so far.Can't remember VIOLENT NAPLES too well as the Maurizio Merli films are so similar but i'm sure i enjoyed this too.I also liked STREET CRIME and FEAR IN THE CITY very much.Again very hazy,but i remember LEFT HAND OF THE LAW being not much good.

Susan's sister? Cool

Fortunately not and she is actually talented! Cheesy

She comes from a well respected London-Irish singing family and is probably most well known for providing the vocals for the Harrison Ford's PATRIOT GAMES.As well as the voice/bodhran she also excels on the flute and whistle.

I'm learning another song AND SO IT GOES by English guitar maestro Steve Tilston shown here performing it with his wonderful ex-musical partner/wife Maggie Boyle.

Great list Banjo! Can't believe I've never noticed this before.

I'd totally forgotten about this list.Can't believe this was started 5 years ago.I notice some missing ratings for some of his soundtracks  so maybe this needs an overhaul?BTW i'm sure LOVE LIVE YOUR DEATH isn't Morricone and i'm a little dubious about LUCKY LUKE having only seen this once.

Lets hope that the consortium has nobler motives than the American Glazer family who took over MU.

My team Brighton is having a dream season.Already champions of League 1 we have recently set a post war record of 8 straight wins and look likely to achieve 100 points by the end of the season.Next season we start in a brand new ground only one league below the big guns in the Premiership. Smiley
