Vengeance Is Mine (FukushĂ» suru wa ware ni ari, 1979)
The true story of a famous Japanese mass murderer. I'm not quite sure how to rate this. I had to watch it in two parts (turned out to be a week apart) because frankly otherwise I would have fallen asleep (the running time is 140 min). I'd summarize this as a not very comfortable experience but yet very interesting. There are great scenes - actually almost every scene is brilliant - and the way the murderers motive is never really exposed is really admirable. Imamura's ability to compose images (which in many cases equals scenes) is masterful.

Django Unchained (2012) - 7/10
I was pleasantly surprised. Somehow Tarantino is able to make clearly overlong movies that still keep you entertained for the whole running time. I had fun time watching this but that's it.

Bad Taste (1987) - 3/5, not bad for Peter Jackson's first movie.

I thought this was a total bore. And badly made.

But all films of Jackson are directed more or less badly. Or at least weak or mediocre. Directed in a way I don't like. Even the highly entertaining Braindead isn't a pleasure for the directing.

It was one of those movies where all the effects were so bad they were actually pretty enjoyable to watch.

That's true. It was done at least with a lot of enthusiasm.

I didn't realise Peter Jackson was that guy playing the scientist until about 15 minutes into it.

America America (1963) 7.5/10

Elia Kazan's story of his uncle's harrowing journey from oppression and poverty in a small Turkish village to his dream of immigrating to America. Probably the definitive immigrant movie.
It's always nice to be reminded of how lucky we are to live in freedom and prosperity.

not till I saw his name on the credits. Never would have noticed him.

(I guess the poor bastard was never destined to fulfill the dreams of his lifetime  ;))

Grand Slam (1967) Ad ogni costo a nice surprise, 8/10

I give this a 10/10, this is probably my favorite caper movie.

btw, Frayling says that Leone was considered for this project; see STDWD, pp. 165-166, RE: discussions of the projects Leone was considering after FOD, before he ultimately decided to do FAFDM:



He also contemplated a remake of Fritz Lang's M, possibly with Klaus Kinski (admired for his theatre work at the time), in the Peter Lorre part of a Dusseldorf child murdered. At the same time he contacted Sergio Donati, asking him to write a script for another Papi and Colombo production. It was a thriller about a diamond heist, called Ad ogni costo/Grand Slam. Donati recalls: He was supposed by contract to do something like ten movies in a row for [Papi and Colombi] .... I was even ready to go to the location. I had the ticket to Egypt, and Sergio called me in Milan at the last minute and said 'Don't go, don't go.'

Frayling goes on to describe how Leone ultimately was able to get out of a bad  long-term contract he had signed with Papi and Colombo (out of desperation to get FOD off the ground), and went on to make FAFDM partially as a means of getting back at Papi and Colombo -- so the title of his film took on a one-upsmanship meaning: FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE!

Grand Slam did have a lot of Leone collaborators  full crew is here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062636/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm#cast
