Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Rate The Last Movie You Saw
« on: July 06, 2012, 01:27:36 AM »
Street Law or (Il cittadino si ribella-original title)

Directed: Enzo G. Castellari

Starring: Franco Nero, Barbara Bach, Giancarlo Prete, Romano Puppo

Good revenge thriller with good action scenes. Franco Nero is over the top in a few scenes but is otherwise very good and at the top of his form. Stroy line is intriguing .Awesome music. Drivin' all around is especially noteworthy.

My rating- 8.5/10

Duck, You Sucker / Re: Tuco or Juan
« on: July 06, 2012, 01:20:32 AM »
Dont know if this point has been made apologies if it undeed has been made. Tuco, for me, absolutely nails all the emotions perfectly. Someboydy here opined that Tuco goes after money only. But, in my view, the scene in which he is talking to Blondie and praising his brother to the skies when he(Padre Ramirez) had only some time ago expressed his absolute contempt for Tuco(to change his mind, later) shows his human side too...The slightly pensive music playing in the background too makes it one of the best scenes in arguably the best movie ever made.

this, however, is not to run down Steiger's effort who was good in DYS. However, Tuco to me is way better than Steiger and perhaps most memorable movie character ever.

Duck, You Sucker / Re: Worst Morricone Soundtrack?

This is my favourite soundtrack.... I am listening to  "Invenzione per John"(my favourite) as I type...The melancholy theme is also beautiful piece of music.

Very right, Rudra. In fact, it is embarassing to see what passes for "good acting" in Indian flms. I am sure you would have seen Joshilay too.  My 0.02$- it is not a classic but watchable in parts.

For a Few Dollars More / Indian FAFDM
« on: June 23, 2012, 09:21:40 AM »
This movie must eerily remind forum members of FAFDM..........Amigos, have a look.....

The name of the movie is Khottey Sikkey ( Literal translation: "Counterfeit Coins"). At 2:06, you will see Danny Denzongpa who bears an uncanny resemblance to Lee Van Cleef and generally played villainous roles.....

General Discussion / How many here from India?

Hello everybody, this is Prabal from India. Just wanted to know if there are others on this wonderful forum for Leone aficionados from India.

Other Films / Re: Sholay: Leone via Bollywood
« on: June 23, 2012, 08:51:49 AM »
Hello everybody, here is my 0.02$ on Sholay.... Hailing from India, I can confirm that andrewhyatt has correctly mentioned Sholay is regarded as the greatest movie produced in India.  In one Minerva Theatre in Mumbai, it was screened packed for 5 years. From what I see I could see multiple inspirations- the story is more "Magnificent Seven" albeit with only 2 gunmen there, but camerawork definitely is inspired from "Once upon a time in the West" and to a lesser extent, "The Wild Bunch". India has its own Wild West in Chambal ravines, an area straddling present day states of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. (Actually, I hail from that part of India and can vouch for the fact that there are still dacoits there) Recently, Bollywood has seen release of a film by the name of "Pan Singh Tomar" which may be classified as a "revisionist western". Generally, the movie has been well received though I have not seen the movie myself. Bollywood used to see lots of Western releases in 1970s, frequently starring Vinod Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and Feroze Khan(who is fondly called "Eastwood of India")  in lead roles. I personally think Sholay cannot be compared with any of the Leone films on quality but it is good entertainment nevertheless. I will provide information to the greatest extent possible to  any one willing to know more about Curry Westerns.

General Discussion / A place only Mary knows

This is Prabal from India. This is my first post in this forum. Though I have read some earlier posts discussing this idea which Leone intended to develop into a film, could someone tell me more about how Leone inteded to treat it. The concept sure looks very similar to GBU in that there is a treasure hunt involved in both of them.
