sorry guys, dont buy into this "steiger's shit accent adds to the film" school of thought. OTT personified, not Steiger's finest hour.

I think the point is that Wallach never really tries to do an authentic Mexican accent.

hi everyone been away for awhile just tryin 2 get back in the habit of posting again.

anyway, corbucci seems to have even more of an obsession with eating, as seen by Charlie, one of Loco's henchmen, in The Great Silence.

man, that would have been a long film in its uncut version with the final flashback and such scenes as these!! ive always thought its the one leone film that drags a bit, sacrreligious as that may be.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Why "Blondie" in GBU?
« on: October 06, 2005, 04:30:39 PM »
hi again guys, just read on wikipedia that the reason why Tuco calls Clint 'Blondie' in GBU is because it is a Mexican nickname for a White American, something that i dont even think Frayling picks up on. This would serve to answer my long-held confusion regarding this, and also Angel-Eyes' order to his minions: "I want that blonde alive", he was couching it in those terms.

ive been away for a while guys and though its not place to announce my return on such a sombre issue, i think it would sho neglect for me not to comment on the late, great Tonino Delli Colli.

Ive always maintained, though some vehemently disagree, that the primary genius in Leone's Westerns, was Leone himself, but that his direction was reliant on certain other contributors to work. I mean, without Morricone's music, or Delli Colli's cinematography, and to a lesser extent, Clint's acting, would his films had such resonance? I would say not.

Delli Colli had the talent to bring Leone's vision into being, and he was a great cinematographer and will be sorely missed. He also showed, on the OUATITW docs that he is also a funny man.

lets not forget in their infinite wisdom the film company also thought Angel-Eyes was the Ugly and Tuco the Bad as well. They generally know jack all.

i like alot of his great roles but after bowling for columbine hes gone right down in my estimation. tho i do think moore was a bit harsh following him around his house.

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: Eastwood vs. Bronson
« on: June 10, 2005, 02:27:31 PM »
as ive said b4 on a number of occasions i dont think eastwood would have been quite right for the part as u never know anything about his past in his roles whereas u do with harmonica. could he have played te 'tortured soul'. hard to see it.

Hi guys and girls been away for awhile, exams, parties n'all.

i agree kill bill is way overrated and sin city is better, tho like kill bill it borrows from leone and most people dont realise it.

oh well, ho hum...

Other Films / Re: A Town Called Hell (1971)
« on: May 24, 2005, 01:49:03 PM »
any good? i meant to watch it but pro evo has pride of place in my house!!

i agree with general sibley, doesnt really make him The Bad if Leone includes that scene, it is a great scene tho, esp when the camera pans around him.

ooh sorry dont agree there. alien is as powerful and it was then, its all about tension that film and its palpable, much better than the second one, its great, but its a shoot-em-up, alien was a horror film really
