Trivia Games / Second vehicle in GBU...
« on: June 11, 2008, 03:50:31 PM »
The truck that goes by while Tuco and Blondie are planting the dynamite is the obvious one, but has anyone else spotted the other vehicle? :D (I did, that's why I made this post. Last time I made a post here you were wondering if I was asking or giving. Well, I'm giving!)

EDIT: Oh yeah, and where is this second vehicle spotted? I say this because, technically, that was just a yes or no question, ya bunch of titoli-style sticklers.

Rainbow Live in Munich 1977 - 10/10!!!

Anybody who likes live albums from the 70's, great guitar playing or just rocking your little ass off should give this a listen.

I've never been a fan of Ritchie Blackmore, but after hearing this several times in the past week my opinion of him is very different. With his guitar playing, Cozy Powell's drumming, and Ronnie James Dio's pre-Sabbath style of melodic singing it's classic as hell. The part at the end of the song Kill The King where Powell, Blackmore, and the bass player all play the same riff is so heavy it could kill:

I had that line reserved. I wanted to say it in the Navajo Joe thread because cigar joe kept going on and on about the whole "Joe isn't dressed like a Navajo, and Navajos didn't have tipis, they had hogans!", but I thought "Nah..."

Which brings me to this question: Are the countless quotes all around the internet about Navajo Joe's dress code and the hogans all from CJ?

The riffage in this song:

John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers - All Your Love

Yes, there's no Stendhal like my Stendhal, everyone is 'almost' when it comes to being as specific in their written expression.

After I posted this I thought "Oh no, he'll ask me for 'sources' or interrogate me in his concise, almost Stendhalian precision how I came to such an opinion! Then he'd mix my opinion up with his rationalizing and I'll just be asking to get my ass digitally kicked!"

...about a movie, especially a movie you'd expect him to hate, it's like watching a Roman emperor pardon a man while he's on his way to the gallows.

Here, here, agree with me!

Why does everyone pick on Dave Jenkins? He seems so harmless.

Because he should learn when to shut the fuck up!

I watched half of it last night(tired) and I enjoyed what I saw. I might even enjoy it more the next time around. There were so many great shots and locations one can't take it all in at once! Or one half in two nights...

I love how Joe's presence in the movie is like his relation to the outlaws: He's like a phantom that appears when you least expect him 8) That scene where he takes the train was classic spaghetti!

What I find fascinating in Corbucci's films during the time of Navajo Joe/Django/Hellbenders is the very refined camera set ups and editing, particularly in Hellbenders. It's so damn smooth and on-the-spot that it sticks out compared to his more average, in comparison, efforts in cinematography and editing, like Great Silence, Mercenary and Companeros(though I adore those films, I'm not knocking them).

One thing I also loved in this film was the locations. What I enjoy the most about seeing a new Corbucci film is how he chooses and captures a new environment, but after seeing Silence, Django, and Mercenary I would wonder how many other options for unique and different-from-the-last environments he had left. Because of this and the trailer I was under the impression it would be average spaghetti landscapes and locations but I was extremely impressed with the feeling of limitless, almost dreamlike green hills/mountains and plains. I should've expected it at some point! I don't know about you, friend, or friends, but I'm a sucker for greenery in spaghetti westerns, which is one of the reasons why I hold MNIN and Face to Face in high regard. I really love that shot from the train window of that huge-assed canyon region.

Anyway, I'll finish this later ;D :-[
