the movie was deifently let down by the poor poor poor love scene between diaz di caprio, they were both crap.  There was no real love there, not even lust by thinking.  Anyway ewan, no i'd me more inclined to go with with Jude Law, a bit girlish i know but he looks like a mean bastard

well mate if you tried to do all that travelling in England, a) you'd be looked at funny, b) you'd end up in the old colonies in New Dehli.  Just the extense of land in the USA is mind bogling.  I went travelling by myself throughout Europe in my School Holidays, using an inter rail pass, and the sheer freedom of the huge land masses was simply amazing.  Although it doesn't quite compare to Tuco's 80 mile desert walk

these mythical opening what do you mean by them?  I have heard of a theory in cinema whereby there are only 7 types of film/story.  I can't remember all of them or even precisely any of them but i am pretty sure when i tested every possible film it always fitted in as one or a few mixed.  Correct me if i am wrong about the number 7, it maybe more or less (just)

Two things as well, Jill Mcbain, i have to confess you write better english then the average person from the US or the UK do. secondly wheres the name Jill Mcbain from.

General Discussion / Re:LEONE UNCULTURED?

What is the meaning of "uncultured"? What is the meaning of culture? Nonsense.

In OUTW and OUTA Leone describes the history of the United States better than plenty of historians.

I have the upmost respect for leone and do not know much about his cultural capacities.  But the fact that he can describe the history of the united states does not make him cultured or uncultured.  Coming from an Italian point of view (alhough i am not Italian, i do have family there and their sense of culture is one which holds culture in high esteem, as nighteagle may back up,) maybe he was talking about passions for art, opera, music, great literature and so on.  Leone was a great director but that does not make him cultured.  Neither does his exstensive knowledge of 40's and 50's westerns.  A vast knowledge in a small field cannot culture somebody, they need a broader learning of many of the fine arts, sciences, and philosophies.

Lee van cleef a ninja? your wording, "whats going on there," truley matches my amazement.  His grinning face is so perfect for a bit of over dub and quick close up on the face camera shots.  Alhtough i have to confess that i don't have much respect for kung fu movies, they bore me senseless

it has to be used in every spook ever, i don't think one person who ain't a leone fan could ever guess who wrote it, or that Moricone's work is far more exstensive than a few bars of whistling

thats quite extrodianry that a movie can prompt a change in life style thats as drastic as yours.  DO you ever miss the hussle and bussle?  When you first moved across was it a kind of city slicker in the west situation?

ah it was probably peru, both countries are on the gringo trail.  Is it nice, in the book i read it claims the town was amazingly tranquil

For a Few Dollars More / Aquas Calientes (spelt drasitcally wrong)
« on: February 18, 2003, 01:56:03 PM »
I was travelling in Egypt with my mum when i came across a travel book called the Gringo Trail.  In it they actually go to a town called Aquas Calienties like the town in the movie.  It's in Bolivia i think.  Anyone been there?  Is it the inspiration for the whole town scene?  Do you reckon Leone went there?  A bit random i know but i haven't posted for a few weeks so i'm getting into the swing of things

Waterworld? The ahem is deffinetly needed there mate.  Although i do think its better than the previously stated star trek movie.  I hate star trek with a burning passion

Yeah Pulp fiction is a "great great" movie, but as we have both said resivior dogs isn't, although its damn cool.  Cult written all across it

Strange you don't like .  i don't really like Resevoir dogs, i prefer Pulp Fiction, very very cool.  Tarrantino is good but overrated

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly / Re:why does Blondie keep tuco alive?
« on: February 17, 2003, 04:30:19 AM »
yeah I suppose, it seems the only reason, although Tuco doesn't give him much reason to like him, apart from the fact that he is useless.  Also how can you like someone who puts you through the torture that tuco puts blondie through.  Then again blondie did the same, nearly
