Sorry if this has been discussed (many, many times) before and I never saw it... but did anybody else notice the HUGE Leone homage in Guy Ritchie's film?  It uses the chiming watch theme to great effect, being hilarious without being a parody of Leone/Morricone, but rather paying tribute to it.  It's almost like Ritchie saying "I know I'll never be as good as you, Sergio, but you've been a huge influence for me, so here's my thanks."  (I kind of doubt it, though, Ritchie being a great director but kind of a jerk.)

Amazingly, I only just watched this movie for the first time tonight (the director's cut version, no less). It's quite possibly one of the best movies I've ever seen. Do yourself a favor and check this awesome flick out sometime, and soon. Would it help to presuade you if I said there's a piece of music from a Leone film in it?

I saw Layer Cake last year in preperation for Daniel Craig as the new James Bond, a movie that was compaired to "Lock, Stock..." quite a bit, (though I think "Lock, Stock..." was quite a bit more comedic). I had made the mistake of reading the book first so I wasn't all too impressed by Layer Cake, but if you saw that movie and liked it, check out "Lock, Stock...", it'll rock your socks off.

DOH! :o

Well, I guess this thread can be about the actual movie rather than just pointing out the FAFDM reference.

Yes LS2SB is a great film especially the part where they translated that 1 conversation.That was the greatest.

I think it was when he was explaining about when the guy set the other guy on fire in the bar because he asked him to turn the volume on the tv down.

I definately will see Snatch soon, though from what I've read on different movie boards it seems that whichever one anybody saw first they liked better. So I'll probably be a "Lock, Stock..." guy, but I'll try going into Snatch with an open mind.

How can you call Ritchie a jerk, after making that classic Swept Away!

Long time no see. I was blown away when I saw it the first time, and after a re-watch I still think it hold its ground well. The undertone of the movie is slightly arrogant, but I can tolerate it as the characters are interesting goofs and the plot very dynamic.


8/10

I must admit I too thought Snatch was better, but I'm gonna have to call you back on that.
