For a Few Dollars More / Re: Throwing the tin star in the dirt

Dirty Harry threw his badge away also.
In his case I believe it was because he violated orders and figured he would be fired

There was one GBU release that was obviously screwed up- burnt faces and dark interiors- that we all are appalled.
But, generally there is no " correct" color timing. Every print is going to look a bit different. If the sky shade of blue or another, I don't
bother. As long as it's blue.
The obsession with technical ' perfection'  eludes me. You should see the nutjobs on the soundtrack forums!
They are even worse...." The album wasn't mastered properly..."

Sir, that is slander.

In your heart, you know he is right!

Oh boy!
I avoid like the plague, the guys who obsess over picture quality....

" The skin tones are off....the sky is the wrong shade of blue....the blacks are crushed.....!"

I'm with Cigar Joe on this one.
I saw it twice in 30 years, always was really bored by it. I like Peck & Mulligan a lot but this one (like all Peck films from 1966 - 1970) is neither fish nor flesh, bloodless in any sort anyway. Somehow I was always glad that Pakula as well started directing around that time. His films are so much better than Mulligan's directorial entries (minus MOCKINGBIRD & LOVE WITH THE PROPER STRANGER).

Just watched the bluray which has a beautiful picture.
!Sadly, this film is a dud.
Well made, with a good premise.but a long, predictable and depressing denouement.
The best thing is that cool location for the ranch.
Foster kept things interesting when He was on screen

The BIG problem is the antagonist. " Super Apache" can't see can't hear can't escape him....ypu can't kill him".
Don't believe it.

Then.   again I'm not a fan of TOS.

Never knew about this film before watching DVD.
I like two things: the focus on Holliday and the cursing.
This might be the first Western to use curse words ( No f- bombs).

It's fairly short running time ( No BIG GOUNTRY bloat).
Keep it watchable.

Fraying is great.
As usual.
He should do commentary on EVERY release!

First. studio American film to have nude female #

The scenes in.the extended cut featuring. Angel Eyes at the fort and the extended dialog scenes with the Union Captain are important but otherwise I prefer the International cut.
If I had the expertise I would add those scenes for my personal preferred cut.
It can be standard DVD format.
Anyone here want to to that.for me?
I have some cool stuff I could give you in return#

Finally got around to this one.
Wyler is a favorite, but this flick was exactly what I feared ; a Hollywood epic more interested in scenery and melodrama than great storytelling.
I liked seeing Heston in a rare  villain role but his performance consisted of brooding and looking tormented. I think he was doing his Brando.
Peck was Peck.
Ives was the best thing in it.
Too long.
Yeah, the theme is great.
Simmons looked particularly busty in this.
Always like her.

Bluray looks magnificent.
I'll listen to the commentary only because of Frayling.

After seeing SOLARIS In first run. I had to seek out this filmmakers work.
Alas, this man had only one master piece in.him.
In fact, he had only one.good film in.him!
I think the atrocious STALKER was the last film I saw .

He had complete sympathy with the confederate cause.

Lots of romantic shots of the saltire in the background.

If those quotes are accurate, Leone was not well versed in the issues surrounding the Civil War.
I believe he wanted to make an anti- war statement and picks and chooses from various historical events- including WWI and WWII

 :-[Well, the North were the " good guys" compared to the Confederacy who seceded to preserve and expand slavery.

Check out LINCOLN.
