So, we finally have a new board. Wanted to be the first one to post here.



To anyone who's seen the film, can any of Leone's future trademarks be seen in Colossus of Rhodes?

Wow! This is great seeing this Thread up and running! I have yet to see the film though. I'm going to order it this week. I'm sure I'll have a lot to talk about after I see it. Stay tuned...

The only thing I like in the movie is the Colossus itself.

This is quite a historic moment for the board.
It's the first time the format has been changed since november 2002!
It's our first foray into refurbishing the board.

MMM! Looks good! In big screen it would work, I think...

I will swear that the Colossus is destroyed at the end...  Evil

The Colossus of Rhodes taking a deadly leak on the ant-like warriors below.


The Colossus of Mexico . . .

I posted this in the thread linked above, but since it is easily reposted, I place it here as well.

Once Upon a Time on the Island of Rhodes



In the final sword-down, Somebody is obscured as Frank strikes.


Jill watches apprehensively.


Frank backs away. Has he won?


Frank turns, revealing a mortal wound.


Somebody steps into view: he’s okay!


The happy couple re-united.


It’s tough having to bite the dust without a harmonica in your mouth….

I liked the film a lot. Saw it at a Leone retrospective in Queens, N.Y. back
in '99 - which at the time was pretty much the only place to see it.

I picked it up on Tuesday at SunCoast Video, for $9.99.

Just from the trailer I can see that one Leone trademark is in the movie; epic sweep!   Afro
