Ennio Morricone / Morricone Conducts Morricone
« on: August 24, 2008, 02:08:05 PM »
This is on in the UK on Wednesday 27th at midday on one of the obscure Sky Channels (Arts??).  I can't remember which exactly as I don't have TV-I-Have-To-Pay-For, but I did read it in a comprehensive TV listings guide

General Discussion / Quotes used/wished I'd used
« on: August 18, 2008, 01:23:49 AM »
Just thought I'd share this with y'all

Me and the tribe have just returned from a venture through Normandy; driving about, enjoying the scenery while the kids played their DS's in the back.  One particular nice day, my wife looked at the blue sky and remarked that the 'Gods are with us today'.  Five minutes later, I took a wrong turning and quipped without thinking 'Gods not on our side cos he hates idiots also'.  Not perfect paraphrasing and the whole thing went over everyones head anyway.

By the by, it reminded me of a few years ago when I really wanted to quote an SL line to the nation (and maybe the world). We had a bit of a nutter in the area.  He killed two sisters about 15 miles south of here (York), then hitched up and killed an elderly couple.  There was a big manhunt for the guy (Mark Hobson I think he was called) and since he had no transport it was assumed he was still in the area.  It was big news and the nations media swarmed the city to give the nation the latest updates.  Obviously, in between talking to PC Plod, they were asking residents what they thought of the whole thing.  I tried my hardest to be asked since I had my answer ready - "When you've killed four, it's easy to make it five".  I never got asked.

Off-Topic Discussion / Comedy

Makes you laugh eh??

British comedy is not necessarily the best, but is often remade for translation purposes; dunno why.  I can understand and enjoy Cheers or Taxi just as much as anyone so why can't Steptoe and Son and the like be left alone in its original glory??  Selfishly I put a couple of clips of Phoenix Nights in the 'The Office' topic.  How long before this is revamped to an Ohio setting?  This section is for TIMELESS COMEDY CLIPS ONLY.  No 'Two Point Four Children' (UK) or 'Different Strokes' (US) or equivalant.   I'm gonna put a couple of Dads Army clips in (1970's comedy set in World War II and the pensioners and simpletons who provided our last line of defence).  The first is the best version of an old chestnut I can find, but still not good enough - apologies for quality.  The second is Fraser telling a typically tall story.  Feel free to add any sitcom clip that makes you laugh.  I'll be adding my own in the coming days

Other Films / No Country for Old Men (2007)

Looks good - this is the 'adults only' trailer.

A few Leone stylings, but the Coens are masters in their own right.

General Discussion / Ringtones
« on: March 26, 2006, 03:39:34 PM »
I know there is a topic that touches on the subject already, but I would really like to build a collection of SL film ringtones for my mobile phone.  I have tried recording a few off the TV but the quality is a bit wishy-washy.  However, I do have the first 15 seconds of A Fistful of Dollars (where Clint appears from the cloud of dust after setting off the dynamite) which I downloaded from some ringtone site.  The quality is ok (good enough to have it as my ringtone). 

Here's the deal.  If anyone wants me to send the ringtone to them, then send me a PM with your mobile phone number AND a ringtone you possess which you will send me in return.  Also advertise yourself on this topic for other people to contact you.

Once I have got a ringtone (eg, GBU) I will refuse all other requests from people who offer GBU, but by advertising themselves on this board, they may be contacted by someone who has what they want.

I will only entertain requests from people who are established on this forum to prevent people joining, grabbing themselves a free ringtone and giving nothing in return.  Each time I send, it will cost me 50p, so I would like something in return.  I am based in the UK and believe I can send Europe-wide as my network (Tesco) is done through O2.  My phone is not tri-band so I will not be able to send worldwide.

Once Upon A Time In The West / BBC2

For all those of you in the UK who don't yet own the film or haven't seen it yet (I'm sure a lot of Clint fans visit this site) then get watching on BBC2 , Tuesday 27th Dec.

Once Upon A Time In The West / "Now that you called me by name"

Timmy would have survived if the fatal question "What are we going to do with this one Frank?" hadn't been asked.


Off-Topic Discussion / HAPPY ST GEORGES DAY
« on: April 22, 2005, 10:23:56 AM »

General Discussion / Mastermind
« on: September 25, 2004, 12:55:32 PM »
All British folks!!!  Someone is going to be on Mastermind at 8.00 on Monday 27th September answering questions on Sergio Leone according to my TV listings.  Is it one of you guys??  Should be good for a larf, although I hope there's not too many questions about make up artists, assistant editors etc etc.  lets see who gets the most questions right (no cheating now).

Trivia Games / a quickie

Which actor that we all know won a BAFTA for Best Newcomer and for which film?

Bonus points for reciting the acceptence speech (only kidding)

General Discussion / Favourite line
« on: April 18, 2004, 11:17:31 AM »
I'm new to this excellent site but one of the fun things i've done is trawl through the different subjects and looked at members signatures.  It makes you realise how many classic lines there are in so few films of Sergio Leone.  My signature (good friend by my side) is from (I think) one of the all time classic scenes in cinema history at the mission in GBU.  But favourite line?  I like the bit in OUTITW where Frank spits and says 'Now that you called me by name'.  Spine tingling stuff.  I'll probably change my mind next week though. :-\

Off-Topic Discussion / Joel and Ethan

On the same day I found you lot, I also found a fantastic site dedicated to the Coen Bros.  What a day!  With Sergio Leone they share the same sense of black humour, are as wonderfully able to tell a good yarn (which is in my mind v. important) and in casting they know who can be relied on to bring the performance in mind to the fore.  Check it out.  It's at:-
