I know Pirate of the carribbean is not everyones cup of tea, but I really like this bunch of movies
all the more so due to the Leone tie ins.
Sparrow and Tuco
the tip of the cap to once upon a time in the west in Worlds end
the watches For a Few Dollars More
And the great music score.
Its all just great fun, but I like the undertones that you can see in the films
Leone could have made these and they would have been classics

If anyone has seen Rango (by Gore Verbinski, the first pirates' director), it's filled with references to Leone (and to western films, and apocalypse now, and others).

I just saw tonight for the first time "Rango", absolutely agree many Leone references, maybe that should even be a thread.  I saw the windmill creaking, focus on boots walking, a Morton-like guy in a wheelchair who wanted the land and claimed that businessmen were overtaking the criminals, the way Leone characters raised their heads to shw their faces after first being hidden by their hats, an Eastwood Man with No Name character (referred to as that) with poncho, hat boots, etc., film awards.  Even a reddish-blond hunchback in a showdown scene, camera angles, music, etc.  Worth watching for SW enthusiasts..
