Default The Spaghetti & Other Revisionist Western Appreciation Thread

This thread is dedicated to discussion,rating,ranking and general appreciation of Spaghetti Westerns and other atypical westerns(Eastwood's films,Jodorowski's El Topo,etc) both classic & obscure.

Hopefully this thread will serve to help fans & "noobs" to the genre to find and enjoy films of this type they might not ordinarily hear about or seek out otherwise.


Just to start us off,I ask thiso you believe Eastwood's "Man With No Name"character is the same person in FISTFUL OF DOLLARS,FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE,& THE GOOD,THE BAD,& THE UGLY?Or are they different characters altogether?

Feel free to ask any questions or offer topics of your own!

How is the Sabata trilogy? I want to see some more Van Cleef films. I know he's only in two of them.

That is a good one.

Never been a huge fan of John Phillip Law but he's OK in this one.

Lee VanCleef owns!

If you like him,you should check out SABATA.It's going to be on Encore Western Sunday afternoon again.He's almost like a western James Bond with his trick guns.

I got DEATH RIDES... in one of those 20 movie pack collections.I specifically bought that collection after seeing the movie on Encore Western.They play it a lot and a few other spaghetti westerns like Antonio Margheriti's VENGEANCE and Mario Bava's ROY COLT & WINCHESTER JACK and others.

TCM has some good ones on too sometimes.Just watched HIGH PLAINS DRIFTER a few nights ago.Great movie.

Damn,dude we must be in sync or something.1st you mention making a thread while I'm doing it, then you bring up SABATA while I typing about it!

Weird.

I dig SABATA a lot. Haven't seen the other 2,but I heard that one of them(the 2nd,I think)is a sequel in name only.

Crazy stuff. Well I've found the Sabata box set for $20 including shipping to the Uk which is pretty damn good.

Here's my second most anticipated film after The Third Mother http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cLam3sP29VY. Looks like it could be Takashi Miike's best.

Can't say I'm a big fan of Miike's films.

The only ones I've seen though are ICHI THE KILLER,GOZU,and AUDITION,and the only one of those that I even came close to liking was AUDITION.

I'll still keep trying to give his stuff a shot when they come on cable.I'm determined to do so until I can understand, even a little bit,what all the hype is about.

Give Happiness of the Katakuris a watch, it's definitely up there with his best and is quite different to the films you mentioned.

The first movie I ever saw in the theater was Pat Garret & Billy The Kid with Chris Christofferson, the great James Cobern and brillaint soundtrack and appearance by the man himself Bob Dylan. Ever since that night I was a convert to westerns.

I'm glad I got a chance to see The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in a little theatre in Hemet, CA. It's a cool little place that plays old movies and a few new ones to keep up their revenue. I really hope they play more "man with no name" flicks, or at least more old Eastwood stuff. I love it.

Otherwise I don't know many Spaghetti or other revisionist Westerns. I'm definitely interested in finding more.
