Great Silence and The Mercenary are good flicks that don't come anywhere near Leone's best work.

Oh, they do.

Not as good as GBU and OuTW though, but I prefer them to all the other Leone films.

I just worked on the German Koch-Media DVD for IL MERCENARIO.
It'll be the best DVD-release yet!
In Rome they filmed Franco Nero, Vincenzoni and Nori Corbucci.
I'm afraid my booklet is in German.

I'll post more details soon..

So basically you agree with me then.  :)

Il grande silenzio is in fact a rather anti-Leonesque movie (you can follow the line: Ford - Peckinpah - Leone - Corbucci

Fine, but that's no indicator of quality.

Just an observation unrelated to others' opinion concerning its quality.

yep

The only western I value maybe (but only maybe) higher than OuTW is The Wild Bunch

That's awesome news Mike  O0.

I am sorely tempted to part with my cash to replace my Japanese disc, however the guys over at the SWDB forum are saying that the extras will have no English subtitles  :(.

So how much influence do you have over those Koch guys then? ::)

But there will be no English audio in the interviews  :'(.

Disagree, not a big fan of TM but TGS is one of my favorite SWs, I'd prefer it to the Leones.

No I didn't, I just wrote after it. I hope we're not engaged at this point?

Well the Disc is in the making right now and is already quite late thanks to ongoing  postponed interview appointments.
So I guess it's not so much the will but the lack of time then. Too bad. I didn't realize that. In fact I just translated three
westerns (for english subtitles) for them so I thought MERCENARIO was a sure thing for engl subs. :(
If it's really like that, a second edition might be the solution. If it sells as well as I think it will....


The doc will be pretty long, about an hour, with most principals involved:

That sucks Mike, you'd think it should just be a given, why not do it with a mind at  maximization of potential audience/consumers.

Anyone who was ever involved in DVD-production knows about the costs of translation & subtitling.
Thousands of Euros. So if they (Koch) ocassionally do it, I think it's merely a good will than going
for big business. How many guys outside of Germany are buying German DVD's even with engl. subs?

My experience after a decade now is that it is a really small number of aficionados. Nice to have them,
nice to spread your product around the world a tiny little bit. But the numbers sold are really marginal.
I'm facing the same experience right now with my PASSION & POETRY. Although the whole show
is all in English, it seems only Germans are buying it (because it's a German DVD. Seems like.). The film
got a fantastic review at DVDtimes.co.uk and over 1000 viewers checked that review. Nevertheless
since it went online exactly 5 people from the UK bought the film + one from Sweden.

I guess I persuaded Koch-Media to go with englisch subtitles at the very last minute :)
I like these forums best when they really influence things.

I'll translate it next week... (The documentary - the main film has an english soundtrack anyway as I understand)
I'll be back with final confirmation and more details about the DVD soon..
