These are very good! Are there in COR any "Leone-ish" close-ups?

Not that I noticed.

You missed it dave, the Leone-ish close-ups are of the Colossus.

You see, Leone always was Leone. And the ants and the Colossus - he didn't steal it from Sam...  Wink

Something funny i read about this movie...

it seems Leone's way of expressing his accomplishment was saying that he made the movie to .."pay for his honeymoon.."

i take it he wasn't very satisfied with it after all.

I don't think he ever cared about Peplum films.


Plus, it doesn't have the Leone trademarks that made him great, except for the epic sweep.

I rented it, never watched it, and returned it for some other movie.

I bought this DVD just for the Leone name, I saw the movie for the first time and I couldn't relate it to Leone's future works, but then I turned on Sir Christopher Frayling commentary and I could appreciate the film in a different light, of course it's very hard to think that the person who directed Colossus, was the same who directed FOD 3 years later, but Mr. Frayling does a good job trying to establish some links between Colossus and Leone's future work. It's interesting, but still this is my 7th favorite Leone movie (the least favorite).

Its kind of bizzare that the two bookends to Leone's career are so different. Cheesy

well, he had to start and end somewhere...

Interstingly enough, if Leone's lifetime work had been a book, people would've judged it harshly by its cover... kinds like they do already.  All his best work found are beyond the first one (the cover of the book).

It's got some of Leone's trademarks: listen to Chris Frayling's commentary. It's great.
