Don't you like music with your supper?

I'm sure Groggy would enjoy one or two of Sollima's efforts. :)

If I could find Sollima films I would watch them, but I don't think the Library has any.

Wow, I just saw this tonight thanks to Netflix.  Fastastic!  My father couldn't stand the music but I liked it.  Van Cleef was wonderful, but then he always is even in garbage like The Magnificent Seven Ride!  And I liked Law as Bill, after all he's a young man trying to be taken seriously by some pretty mean hombres (including Van Cleef).  He made me think of DiCaprio in Catch Me If You Can, an underaged fraud hoping that he's not found out.  Beyond Van Cleef and Law, the movie is great and IMO could give Leone's early Dollars a run for its money.

The only thing is I saw it on the god-awful pan-and-scan version that other people mentioned.  How is the MGM widescreen version?  Is it worth buying?

Its a totally different experience on a pristine widescreen copy. I have an SPO Japan DVDr that looks beautiful. Don't know about the MGM release is it R1?

I don't think there is an R1 MGM, only public domain releases. You have to go to R2 (UK) to get an official MGM one (and it's supposed to be in widescreen).



That's what you get, Drink, for not appreciating the genius of When You Read This Letter.

I have the R2 release and it is a nice widescreen print. It is also very cheaply priced :)

However, in spite of the excellent shootout at the end, I must confess that I'm not a huge fan of this one. Personally I find "Tepepa" to be vastly superior.

One of the better  westerns but not one of the best.

The plot is very similar to FOR A FEW, too similar.
I also do not like the fact that the entire opening sequence is tracked with the music from FISTFUL (Tortured")
and the saloon music ("Aces High") comes from FAFDM

Because I knew someone like you once and there was no one there to help.

Is this some kind of Joe Pesci "do I amuse you" thing?

Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!


« #133 : May 22, 2009, 07:06:01 AM »


Why?

I'll tell you why. I think you're a lonely person. I drive by this place a lot and I see you here. I see a lot of people around you. And I see all these phones and all this stuff on your desk. It means nothing. Then when I came inside and I met you, I saw in your eyes and I saw the way you carried yourself that you're not a happy person. And I think you need something. And if you want to call it a friend, you can call it a friend.




No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.

I really enjoyed this one, might put it on my "to buy" list.
Did anyone notice the FOD soundtrack playing at the beginning when the bandits are murdering his family?
