Saw this on SWDB to.
Thanks for putting it here TB. Afro
He sure does make some odd choices for top 20.
Shoot The Living Pray For The Dead is usually seen as one of the worst. I like it but it would never reach even my top 100.
Machine Gun Killers is another odd choice.

Hooray for Grand Duel. At least there is somebody out there who likes this as much as I do!
His Runner up choices are all over the place.
At least two in there are in my all time worst SW list.
And one of them being one of the worst movies I've ever seen, regardless of genre.

I don't get why OUATITW is on the list. I've never really considered it a spaghetti western. And being on the list, I'd think it be at least number 2 on his list. I know he's a huge fan of it.

I don't approve of his ranking of it but I do approve of it being on that list.

I'm no spag expert, so I'll leave that discussion to you guys.

I don't know what bothers me more: West's inclusion on this list or its ranking.

Chino is an unbelievably terrible movie. QT must be listing every spag. he's ever seen as HMs or he genuinely has poor taste.

Claudia, we need you to appear in LOST COMMAND. It's gonna revolutionize the war genre. What did you think of the script?

That is one of the two I was talking about. Chino is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

The more I read his list the more I'm beginning to believe in your conclusion.

MACHINE GUN KILLERS is the most perplexing to me. It has a pretty good story but nothing else. My guess he put it on there because he thought the title sounded cool. Other than that, there's at least 50 other SW's that are miles away better than this one. I did a mini review for it here with pics...

Just noticed "Duck, You Sucker" was in the runners up list. It means that QT (who's supposed to be a great Leone fan) ranks it under "Django, Prepare a Coffin" and "A Pistol for Ringo ".

A Pistol For Ringo is a classic, Viva Django is mediocre.

I wouldn't rate either of them higher than DYS.

Yes, i heard A Pistol For Ringo was good, but come on... As we all know (and as you say), it's just not in the same league.

I never saw DUCK all the way through. It didn't grab me the first two times. A PISTOL FOR RINGO deserves to be in any top ten list. Another one on there that's odd is THE UGLY ONES. What an awful movie that is.

I asked above and nobody answered, but what's an HM?

Agreed. As TH said... The list is just what he's seen.

Anybody who rates the second installment of the Sartana series as the best of the franchise is not to be trusted. Those are my rules. I make em' up and mankind must follow em'.

I thought it was a heavily flawed character piece but worthy of at least one view.

I haven't a clue.
