Ennio Morricone / Re: Chetan Anand Meets Ennio Morriconne
« on: December 26, 2012, 02:41:50 AM »
Agree wholeheartedly with you.
I have not seen No Smoking and GoW. In India, as you would know, there is a cult following for DevD and Gulal, which I finf bemusing. Just abt average to me- both of them. Johnny Gaddar, made by Sriram Raghavan, was a "noir" according to newspapers in Inida, which makes me wonder if the word "noir" is fully understood. I am a fan of noir films as well and am hugely disappointed to not find a good noir movie in Hindi.

Pratidwandi is an intriguing movie. I recommend the same. My childhood was spent in Kolkata and therefore, it is an added advantage that I understand Bengali and therefore able to appreciate Ray's movies.

Frankly speaking, while I do not watch hindi films regularly(last Hindi film I saw was in 2010) I find Farhan Akhtar and Sriram Raghavan overrated. I  have liked what I have seen of Ray. Found films like Seemaboddho, Jana Aranya and Shatranj Ke Khiladi quite impressive.  I have seen some Shyam Benegal stuff and liked Suraj ka Saatvaan Ghoda. Trikal, Junoon, Sardari Begum were ok to me. Overall I am disappointed by quality of Indian cinema as a whole.

 Rudra Bhai, Yeh to bada kamal tha. If the question is not indiscreet, kis tarah ki hindi filmon ka shauq rakhte hain?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: Tuco's Expression
« on: December 22, 2012, 04:14:37 PM »

the look ( while taking pistol out from pocket) very rightly described as the look being " one hoping to even the score." However there is no tension on his face then. There is impatience on his face once all three have taken up their positions. During the actual build up, however, I feel it is Angel Eyes who looks the most tense of the three 
 In my opinion, the only person who seemed sure of himself was Blondie. Blondie looks only at Angel Eyes and only once, does he nod ever so gently towards Tuco. In hindsight, it all seems perfect for he knows that only Angel Eyes is threat to him To me, Angel Eyes looks the most tense of the three. He is constantly fidgeting and his hands are on the gun all the time. He is looking at both of others all the time. To me, if I ever have to define opportunism visually, it would be Tuco's face. Tuco is like that dog waiting to jump on the bone, barely being able to restrain himself and ready for the violent exercise. However, I do agree with the notion that Tuco was the one who cares most about the money.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re: The "Il tramonto" scene

What you wrote actually made me smile because the first time I saw the movie( it was on a TV channel) I started watching from that scene only and it was only in my third viewing that I came to know that it was NOT the first scene in the movie

Thanks. Any other pieces that you guys can think of?

I think fans of Twilight or Slumdog Millionaire would be better placed to answer this question....I doubt any of us( who are fans of this marvellous movie) would have the miserable taste to come up with the worst possible title for this movie.

Thanks. I have seen both of them. The Big Gundown has a couple of noteworthy ones...can you think of some others of the same quality?

Other Films / Most stylish shootouts
« on: October 16, 2012, 01:03:07 AM »
Hello all, I am fairly new to Westerns( circa 20 movies). Could  anyone recommend some hidden gems where the final shootouts have been captured as stylishly as or very closely to how they are in Leone movies?

The piece on the soundtrack "Il Tramonto" that plays when Amgel Eyes appoaches Steven' residence is  a superb piece of music imo. Could anybody recommend similar pieces in any movies?

Ennio Morricone / Re: Favorite Ennio Morricone Score
« on: September 05, 2012, 12:13:55 AM »
My  favourite EM soundtracks  are "Good Bad and Ugly" and "Duck, you sucker". When it comes to individual pieces, all of the following are my favourites (in no particular order, I reiterate):
1. Sundown(GBU)---pure evil
2. Giu La testa theme
3. For a few dollars more theme(too cool to be left out of this list)
4. Invenzione per John
5. Frank(OUATIW)
6.Chi Mai
7. As a judgment(OUATIW)

Thanks for your perspective, guys.
Rudra, really? If yes, then  O0  If you manage to incorporate Sergio Leone trademarks and Ennio Morricone music, tht would be great.  As a lawyer,  though I would advise you to do your own due diligence on whether copyright subsists on the latter.(Ennio Morricone music) Inserting Sergio Leone trademarks will not present any problems though.
Groggy, indeed, it would be worth checking that too.

Duck, You Sucker / Invenzione Per John
« on: July 25, 2012, 11:06:31 AM »
The song which is played in the beginning of the film as the credits roll is very curiously titled "Invenzione per John". It is the strangest (and one of the most beautiful at the same time) piece of music I have ever heard. In its entirety, it conveys a myriad of emotions. May anyone enlighten me why is it titled "Inventions for John" or "Invenzione per John"?
