Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Duration problem - very important!

This site demonstrates the difference between the Italian and International cuts of the film.

I don't understand German so I used babelfish to translate it to english and it is well...... you just gotta see it for yourself

The attitude the old man around-pulling killer begins already in former times.
the attitude of the watching killer is completely new  ;D

Once Upon A Time In America / Re: Rare Leone interview

I've seen this before and I've always wondered, is he wearing a dress?

Because if he is, then that is swell  O0

You don't intend to?  ???

That's quite a shame as you would be missing out on one of the most beautiful movies ever made.
In my opinion Once Upon a Time in America and Once Upon a Time in the West are the movies that are the best examples of Sergio Leone's talent as a filmmaker and a storyteller.
It's true that America is probably Leone's most violent movie and that the characters aren't exactly the most likable bunch, as a matter of fact these gangsters are some of the most vicious, brutal sons-a-bitches I've ever seen in a movie, but it's not an excessively violent movie, it's a beautiful, poetic movie about friendship and most of all about love.

I can't recommend this movie enough.

Rendition -5.5/10

Wow! This looks mighty nice  O0

Have you heard of the Jonah Hex series? It's currently being released by DC comics and they're really quite cool.

Un ParaĆ­so bajo las estrellas (a.k.a A Paradise Under the Stars) -7/10
I watched this in spanish class yesterday. My spanish teacher (whose names is JESUS!! no kiddin') has a real quirky sense of humour, so it doesn't really come as a surprise that the movie he would pick for ust to watch would be this quirky comedy. It's about a girl who falls in love with a boy who her godfather suspects may be her abandoned brother.
This sets in motion a million and one plot twists and left turns and u-turns.
The movie is never boring, except for some dance-scenes that look like they're from another movie all-together, and most of the jokes and left turns are funny but seldom really hilarious, but that feels like nitpicking.
It's a decent entertaining comedy but nothing special, nevertheless it beats the shit out of the previous movie we watched in spanish class, I don't remember what it was called but it was the most predictable, stupid and banal love story ever. I sometimes wonder how the screenwriter and director and anyone involved with it sleeps at night.

Easy Rider -10/10
Dennis Hopper is a swell guy, he has been in movies I absolutely love (Blue Velvet, True Romance and more) and the movie I hate more than any other movie in the whole world (Unspeakable.)
Easy Rider exceeded my expectations. I loved the weird editing, especially in the lsd-tripping scene in the cemetary, that has to be one of the greatest movie-scenes ever.
The music was of course awesome and the performances were pretty much flawless.

Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid -9/10
I really liked this highly entertaining feel-good western. I don't know what I can say that hasn't been said already about this flick, but I'll say that the title characters are one of the most likable movie characters I've ever seen, I wouldn't care if the movie went on for many hours and hours with just the two of them on the run.

The Treasure of the Sierra Madre - 10/10
This was an incredibly cool adventure movie, one of the best I've seen in that genre. Walter Huston was wonderful in his role as the grizzled gold prospector, I've seen that stereo-type parodied a million times in the Lucky Luke comics.
I haven't seen too many Humphrey Bogarth movies yet but this is the best performance I've seen from him, he was just phenomenal as Fred C. Dobbs, what an actor.
This movie was my introduction to James Huston and I'm definately going to check out more of his movies as soon as possible.

The Thin Red Line -10/10
I saw this for the second time today, I liked it the first time I saw it but I loved it this time around, could be my favourite war film. I've only seen two Terrence Malick movies, the other one being The New World wich I also love.
One of the things I like so much about The Thin Red Line is how it stars really famous actors as characters who have maybe only one scene and hardly any dialouge, for some reason they don't seem like cameos or anything like that wich is perhaps the reason it works so well.
My favourite shot in the movie is a shot of a wounded bird dragging itself on the ground amidst the battle and the chaos, incredibly effective.
I love this movie.

Other Films / Re: Peckinpah
« on: November 20, 2007, 04:13:39 PM »
I've only seen a few Peckinpah movies, but he seems like a veru interesting filmmaker so I'm planning to watch more of his movies in the near future.
The ones I've seen are The Getaway, Straw Dogs, Cross of Iron, Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia and Pat Garret &Billy The Kid.

I saw the Getaway a long time ago and recall that I liked it although not as much as most people.
Straw Dogs quite frankly annoyed me, I didn't like any of the characters except for maybe the wife because I felt sorry for her, I even kinda hated Dustin Hoffman in this movie. That said I don't really think it's a bad movie because it raises a lot of good questions,  I think I'll give it another shot someday and see if I like it better, maybe I'll rent both Straw Dogs and Home Alone as it seems they have a lot in common.

When I saw Cross of Iron I must not have been paying close attention to it or my mind was on something else, I don't really know what I thought of it so I'll put that in the pile of movies I need to watch again.

I loved Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia, I loved it's sick sense of humour in particular. The scenes with Warren Oates talking to Alfredo Garcia's severed head were pure gold ;D !

Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid is the only Peckinpah-movie I own and a large part of the reason I bought it was because of the great Bob Dylan, who gives the funniest performance ever in this flick. I liked parts of Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid very much, such as the beginning (first half hour or so is really good), the end and the scene in the bar with James Coburn and Bob Dylan reading random stuff on shelves (best scene in the whole movie)! But some parts really dragged and it was like the movie never really took off.

I want to see more Peckinpah movies but so far these are the only ones I've seen.

Other Films / Re: 3:10 to Yuma (2007)
« on: November 20, 2007, 02:21:22 PM »
I saw this movie a few weeks ago and quite liked it.
The performances and the music was top notch. 
Oddly, it was the first western I ever saw at the cinema. There is another western in theaters now called 'The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford' that I'm going to see as soon as possible.

But back to 3:10 to Yuma. Did anyone notice just how incredibly GAY Charlie Prince (the character played by Ben Foster) was?!

Hi everybody, I just joined this forum and thought I would introduce myself.

My name is Mr. Mouse and I am a teenage mouse from Iceland. It's not an ideal place for a mouse to grow up in but I manage.
Hope to have interesting and fun discussions with y'all.

Drive safe.
