nice list you got there Banjo... unfortunately i've only seen one out of the entire list, The Wicker Man, which i own.  Most people don't like it cos they find it "too odd".  I personally think that's precisely its charm. If you've seen the trailer of the remake it seems almost worth the waste of time to watch the movie because it's rather hilarious, it should've been labeled as a comical parody instead of a horror remake. 

I'd certainly recommend the original.. O0

I love all those movies I own (except maybe She Wore A Yellow Ribbon which I just like)

I'm not as avid about buying AW's as SW's because I can just get AWs from netflix anytime.  I will admit... those movies are all gifts (the John Wayne-John Ford Film Collection and Sam Peckinpah's Legendary Western Collection) from my last birthday and last christmas.

The only Peckinpah film i've seen is Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (to be expected I suppose) and I hear that it can't really be considered a western, even though its opening scene might convince you that it is till you get to the part where the mob leaves the hacienda.  So I assume it's certainly not one of the films in Sam Peckinpah's Legendary Western Collection since it's not on your list.

Yeah, I actually just picked it up pretty cheap on DVD so I'm gonna watch it soon.

I'm pretty sure the film "The Unforgiven" is not the same as Clint Eastwood's "Unforgiven" (which i bought for a friend a while ago and never got to see it), but i'm wondering which is a better film.  I know that Eastwood's Unforgiven was made not too long ago, probably some time in the late 80s or early 90s, but i haven't heard of "The Unforgiven"....Did you like it?


....And WHERE is this review for Sugar Colt you've been threatening us with FC?

Agreed! My favorite Sartana picture. Easily the most re-watchable of the series. Some snooty film experts may not be open minded enough for it's over the top scenarios and cartoonish antics but they can lick a chode.

It's the most sadistic of what is a pretty light hearted franchise (excluding the dark original) with all of it's strange torture scenes that frequent the first 20 minutes.

The  movie is a total gas, not one boring moment throughout the whole film.

You had a problem with Garko's voice dub for "Have a good funeral..." and I agree, much too whiny that one, but the voice actor they got for this one isn't much different (it wouldn't surprise me if it's the same guy).

In fact Garko is usually plagued by dubbers who always sound like they inhaled large amounts of helium before entering the studio to dub their voices.

This is especially evident in some of his earlier and more serious spags like "Vengeance is Mine" and "Cowards don't pray".

Yes, some may call it "over-the-top" mainly because of the "cartooonish" aspect it brings to sme scenes like the organ and "pole-hopping", but (as i told you over the phone), it's probably safe to say that it was MEANT to be unrealistic and therefore cartoonish..
As for the voice dub, i couldn't have put it better. And no, i don't believe it's the same guy, but just to make sure, let's find out (or rather, YOU find out and tell me about it)

"Light the Fuse, Sartana is Coming" was the first film i saw of the Sartana series.  I must say i enjoyed it very much and therefore don't hesistate in giving it a solid 5.
The film has all the elements necessary to make it "worth the while" whether within the spag western genre or within any other.  Already knowing that it existed, i anticipated the organ scene and was thrilled at seeing it even though it didn't last very long (or maybe it just seemed that way), but i found every gunfight scene quite interesting.  It seems to me Sartana was a bit more intriguing in this one than in "Have a Good Funeral..", but then again this might have to do with the fact the Garko's voice actor sucked (i beleieve) in "Have a Good Funeral..".  I loved Alfie, and the fact that Sartana grew so attached to it that he basically went all the way with the sentimental value of an inatimate object and had one made of gold (this made it clear that he got away with the gold).  Throughout this movie, Sartana appears to be more humanistic, and this was one of the main qualities i found in the movie.

"Have a Good Funeral, my friend, Sartana will pay" was the last film i saw a couple of days ago. 
I honestly believe (even though my viewing of westerns has not yet been extensive) that it deserves 4.5 (within the spag western genre) because it's a film that keeps the viewer in tune with the story, it's got interesting camera angles that add to the action.  The plot is not difficult to follow, it's merely Sartana's attempt at finding the hidden gold before his rivals (a banker and a chinese businessman).  With the help of the heiress to the land left by the deceased owner of the gold, Sartana's clever tactics allow him to prevail over his rivals (surprise, surprise).  The card gadgets add the "flare" that seems to be Carnimeo's tendency throughout the series.
Overall, the film deserves more praise than i can give it credit for, i may change my mind later and bump it up to a 5, but for now, with my yet to be experienced taste, a 4.5 seems fair.

I edited it a bit as well, if you don't mind. It came out too dark.

Thanks! Just out of curiousity, could you bring this one down to size to?

I won't ask for another promise!

One post and i love you already Sonny ;)

Good.  That proves your loyalty to "the master" (aka The Firecracker)..or does it..? 8)

In my book, however, the praise should be given to the content of my wisdom...not to me ;D

Surely Sartana deserves a ****  rating then!! O0

Anything called a "classic" should have the luxury of having a four star rating.
