Duck, You Sucker / Juan's Hand
« on: March 28, 2013, 11:40:25 PM »
During the scene where Juan kills the Governor, we see him look at his hand and look up at John and squeezes his fist. I never understood exactly what was being said here? Does it mean Juan is now Juan again after being in sorrow and mourning over what happened with his children?

Duck, You Sucker / Nolan
« on: March 17, 2013, 04:56:37 AM »
As with some of my other topics, I'm not sure if this has been discussed here before but does anyone think that Nolan wanted John to kill him? When you watch the scene in the bar, and it cuts to Nolan's face, its almost a look of self disgrace as if he's saying "I won't think less of you if you do shoot me. I'll understand. I've betrayed the cause and I've betrayed you.".

General Discussion / Framing in Sergio Leone's movies

I'm not sure if this has been poster here yet, but I found this cool page on how Leone frames his shots, particularly in GBU -

Off-Topic Discussion / Opinions on this internet bully?
« on: March 14, 2013, 05:48:25 PM »
A couple of days ago on the news, they were interviewing this bully from Australia who makes youtube videos where he basically has a go at everybody, and it got ugly for the guy interviewing him. It seems most people in Australia hate this guys guts, but I couldn't help finding some truth on what he's saying [I still think he's a disrespectful brat though] -, what do you guys think?

Mine would probably be from the Rush Hour movies.

For a Few Dollars More / Deleted Scene
« on: March 11, 2013, 04:30:58 PM »
I was reading STDWD, and in the "For A Few Dollars More" chapter, it says "...[Indio's] brutality was pruned by two minutes for international prints. In the original version, he baptises his gun in holy water before shooting the prison governor in the face...". Has anyone ever seen this scene before?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Tuco's Eye Patch
« on: March 10, 2013, 05:55:15 AM »
I read on IMDB that Eli Wallach is blind in his left eye due to a stroke, and thought it was interesting that he wore a patch on his left-eye in TGTBTU [bit of foreshadowing there]. I'm not trying to start up some serious discussion here, and am not trying to make fun of Eli Wallach's blindness, just putting a thought out there.

From an italian documentary - (starts at around 1:17). Enjoy!

General Discussion / It just arrived!
« on: March 06, 2013, 03:53:35 AM »
STDWD just came in the mail, hopefully after I read this, my initiation into this web board will be complete. Just by looking at the cover and feeling the weight of the book, it certainly does feel like a Sergio Leone precious.  O0

Let us begin reading!

For a Few Dollars More / Restoration: For A Few Dollars More

Another italian documentary I found on FDM which I'm not sure has been posted here before -

Sergio Leone News / Sergio Leone & Tonino Delli Colli
« on: March 02, 2013, 02:15:23 AM »
I'm not sure if this has been posted here, but I found this documentary about Sergio Leone & Tonino Delli Colli, it's in another language but I thought I'd put it here for those who can understand what is being said.

Other Films / Black Sunday (1977)
« on: February 27, 2013, 05:30:47 PM »
Basic Plot: An Israeli anti-terrorist agent must stop a disgruntled Vietnam vet cooperating in a plot to commit a terrorist plot at the Super Bowl.

I think this is one of the most underrated films from the 70's. It's a really good action thriller, that at the time seemed ridiculous due to the possibility for their being a terrorist attack of that scale on America, but fast forward 24 years to 9/11, and this movie almost becomes a warning or a foreshadowing about terrorism.

I'd give it 4.5/5 stars.

For a Few Dollars More / El Indio used to be good?
« on: February 27, 2013, 04:37:11 PM »
This theory may sound a bit ridiculous, but hear me out.

I was reading a thread talking about the purpose of the twist of Colonel Mortimer's sister, and I thought it was pretty straight forward. But I realised that maybe the scene tells us more about Indio than we think. What if, Indio was the husband of Mortimer's sister, and at that point was a good man, but when he came into the house that night and saw his wife with another man, he killed him out of anger, and (the ridiculous bit) raped his wife out of anger - and because of that she killed herself. And maybe this is the reason why Indio went from good to bad, which is why throughout the entire movie he keeps fantasising about it and from the movie it looks the she means a lot more to him than being just a victim, which would explain his deep regret.

What do you guys think? I'm not sure if this theory has been talked about before.

Sergio Leone News / Mario Brega used to be a butcher?

It's certainly not hard to picture him as one. I could just imagine him cutting that meat with an axe!
