This is a very DIFFICULT film to sit thru.
Little coherence, almost hallucinatory, with Warren Oates PLAYING Sam Peckinpah.

OK, here is the deal. Apparently as of late, there have been one to many jackoffs lurking around this board with intentions of ruining it for the majority of visitors. I appologize that have not been as frequent a visitor as I would like but the solution here is that this board now needs a full time moderator.


Thanks.

I expected that kind of reply.
Well received by the audiences. It provided the funds to continue.
 
Kurosawa was relatively unsuccessful in Japan and from what I figured out Yoyimbo didn't succeed in Japan, either. FOD was pretty well received.  Japanese were more addicted to SW than Americans.  The best and most widely sorted offer of SW DVD is actually coming from Japan.

Oh I forgot to mention...
YOJIMBO, a modest hit in Japan(one of Kurosawa's most popular films) was the highest grossing foreign language film in the world for years(and that's in 1960 dollars - "they had dollars in them days?")

Was this also released as THE BOUNTY HUNTERS? If it was, and if it is the one I thinking of, it ranks imo as one of the most dreadful spags ever made. No wonder the industry died a death when they were churning out shite like this!

INDIO BLACK / THE BOUNTY HUNTERS became ADIOS SABATA in the US( Same director)

I like this one. Slightly goofy, GREAT score by Bruno Nicolai(Morricone's collaborator). A classic SW genre film.

Ennio Morricone / MORRICONE-Men From Shiloh
« on: February 26, 2005, 08:35:10 AM »
yeah yeah yeah...........
I'm a wise ass with my prior response

to those asking/searching

it's available on:

Television's Greatest Hits(In Living Color), Vol 5
(about 1 min)

and a nice 3 min cover version is on a 2cd set called

ONCE UPON A TIME: THE ESSENTIAL ENNIO MORRICONE FILM MUSIC COLLECTION by the City Of Prague Orchestra

Once Upon A Time In The West / Re: missing on soundtrack?
« on: February 26, 2005, 08:26:33 AM »
this is NOT repeat NOT a legitimate release.

It's probably the official expanded score plus rerecords or film tracks dubbed onto cd.


Believe me - I know these things :)

"What kind of film would you have liked to see Leone doing (war, disaster, musical, romantic comedy ,...)?
AND
Which existing film would u rather seen made by him? "

I'm thinkin'..............

DEEP THROAT  :)

think of the intense close ups
think of the slow build up to the climax
think of the ... oohhhh - gotta go!!!!!!

Thanks for the info on the soundtrack with more material.

Has anyone come across a Morricone tv theme from a show called "The Men From Shiloh" from about '69-'70?



yes

"Well received by the audiences. It provided the funds to continue."
 
Bronsky...
Just because it's well recieved by the audiences doesn't mean it's a "better' or even a good film.  Both Leone and Morricone have stated their disasatisfaction with the final results.

YOJIMBO spawned three sequels, one by Kurosawa.

of course, NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and FRIDAY THE 13TH made money... enough to warrant MANY ENDLESS sequels.
Does that make them equal or better than FISTFUL?
 
By your math,  TITANIC makes FISTFUL look like a bad Saturday morning cartoon.

Duck, You Sucker / Re: Special Edition DVD
« on: February 12, 2005, 01:43:21 PM »
Thank you Warwick for the CD information. I'm off to lQQk for it.
Again, does any one know if the DVD will be available in Canada?
MGM.com does'nt mention it. Green acres and Mr Ed is coming though. Go figure!
There is a DVD at MGMUK but the 147 min. version,  in mono sound to boot. Not playable in America, in any case. 
Just hope an eventual american release will be filled with all the goodies. This film definetly deserves wider recognition.
Here's to you, Giù la testa!

there are 11 and 12 track versions of the score, but no FULL soundtrack.

try www.screenarchives.com
look under  DUCK YOU SUCKER
it's $18 American

As far as I can determine, the film was released in MONO not stereo

Fistful of Dollars is a pretty exact remake of Yoyimbo. The latter is really difficult to watch and to enjoy. If I hadn't seen FOD before I probably would have had an orientation problem.  FOD was probably even better understandable to a Japanese audience allthough I would be interested if I were wrong. Kurosawa had the ideas(e.g. the story with the coffins and the not so good but cool hero) and Leone the knowledge to implement them. Kubrick had a different style (at least he had style) and was more prolific.

Son... You obviously haven't watched enough movies...

FISTFUL was an experimental attempt by Leone, trying to find his way. Both he and Morricone acknowledged it as such. An experiment that culminated with GBU.

YOJIMBO was a master craftsman at his storytelling best,  the fluid camera moves, the visuals, the characterizations, the pacing. A wonderful time tested story told for the eyes, the ears and the mind.

And I'm sure you don't understand the extent of the near xenophobic comment you made that the Japanese understand the American west through Italian eyes better than they understand themselves.

Ralph Nelson...
DUEL AT DIABLO is not the film Cusser was asking about, but it is a good cowboy vs Indian western with an interesting score by N Hefti(of '60's BATMAN THEME fame)

Nelson preceded this film with among others... LILIES OF THE FIELD with DIABLO costar Sid Poitier.

The graphic violence(subsequently censored, and the only reason to endure this movie) in SOLDIER BLUE cost him an award from the Catholic church that he got for LILIES
