Other Films / Re: Barbarosa (1982)
« on: January 28, 2017, 03:13:27 PM »
Saw it a few years ago. I didn't think it was anything special but  I found it entertaining. I only remember Gilbert Roland in his role as Don Braulio having a big grudge against Barbarosa (Willie Nelson); and also the bond that develops between the outlaw Barbarosa and the farmer boy. Maybe I will take the time to watch it again.

Well, I watched it again in blu-ray and I am giving it a 7/10. Not an action-packed western, but very entertaining.

A very decent Spaghetti Western directed by Leon Klimovsky, starring William Bogart and a very evil Eduardo Fajardo. Good photography, decent acting and an enjoyable musical score from Carlo Savina. An overlooked little gem that I haven't managed to find on DVD but that is broadcasted every now and then on Spanish TV.

7/10

I also like the opening credits soundtrack.

I have always refused to watch it.
Your loss. The movie is not bad at all IMHO.  ;)

It's an atrocious turkey regardless of the context. Except maybe The Simpsons.

OK, then we agree to disagree.  :)

I think i'm the only one here who (gasp) really enjoys Paint Your Wagon, even better than Pale Rider.

Nope. In fact Paint Your Wagon is one of my favourite Clint movies. One just has to watch it in context and forget about his roles in GBU, FOD, FAFDM, etc.

My favourite scene:

Lee Marvin: And where...AHAHA! was your horse?
Clint: You had my horse!

Another one:

Are you a doctor?
Horse doctor, but bones is bones!

C'mon guys, relax and enjoy it. Paint Your Wagon is a fun Western comedy and you have to take it as such!  ;)

Nicolai claimed in an interview that the score was composed by Morricone.

Don't know about Nicolai making that claim, but Sollima did. The interview is one of the extras in the Run Man Run DVD from Blue Underground.

Thoughts?

I'm going to place my order for this BD and The Big Gundown once the Dollars films are released in a few days.

I will patiently wait for your feedback. Meanwhile I'll stick to those old pesky DVDs.  :D

Judging from the still I wouldn't say it's him, but I ought to watch the movie again. THX anyway.

It could also be Frank's twin brother, but who cares?  ;)

Did you spot Brana?

Yup. I think he is this one.





It may be a bit difficult to recognize him with the makeup, but compare with this one:

I would give this movie a 6/10. The battle scenes are quite good, albeit not as spectacular as in Mestizo (Django does not forgive) and the acting is also pretty good. The plot is nothing outstanding, and it could have been written for an American Western. This says a lot about a Spanish western that was made during the early 60s (pre-Leone era) and had a modest budget. The costumes used in the movie are also quite good, but the mounties' uniforms are not worn properly. One of the most significant mistakes is that the white lanyard to which a mountie's revolver is attached should be worn on a loop around the neck instead of bandoleer style. However, that same mistake is also made in a couple of well-known Hollywood westerns: Cecil B. De Mille's "Northwest Mounted Police" and in Alan Ladd's "Saskatchewan". The same mistake is also made in Mestizo, but at least in La Carga de la Policia Montada the lanyard is attached to the gun, while in Mestizo it is attached to the holster's belt (what were the movie military advisors thinking about??). Another thing that caught my attention is that, while Canadian "Indians" did not dress like their American counterparts in the Southern States, the movie seems to ignore that fact.

But if we forget many of the above details, I think the movie provides for 1 hour and 38 minutes of good entertainment if one does not have high expectations.

Again, 6/10
