A Train for Durango / Un treno per Durango (Mario Caiano, 1968)

I’m speaking as a collector/completist, rating of the movie itself not really considered, but rather that anything release by Koch is for the most part going to be the definitive version of the film available

No qualms with Fidani here though, Fidani’s OK in my book

I recently saw the Fidani put out by Koch, Barrel Full of Dollars

I think it was a great cult SW with the one and only Klaus Kinski and the lovely Simone Blondell

Nice music, the credits with burning fire was brilliant, and the landscape had a strange feeling to it

Great stuff 8)

yep, I’ve got that one too and also am quite satisfied with the release by Koch & the film itself. I read lots of bad reviews about quite a few of the titles put out by Koch, think twice about buying them, and then once I watch the film I’m always pleasantly surprised. I’ve come to trust the judgement of Koch on the titles they choose.

In terms of picture quality yes, but I still have a bone to pick with them about not putting english audio on most of their movies/special features.

Yeah! What especially irritates me is the Baldi documentary on Blondman. Perfect presentation. Nice clean up job and kindly added English audio. But not a fucking word of english on that long ass documentary.

Good one. Let’s think about the best actor for this brandnew SW hero …

Which book?


(autephex) #49

The good one.

The nice extras are good reasons for us all to learn Italian & German :slight_smile:


(Dillinger) #50

The Bruckner?


(korano) #51

Yeah I knew I’d hear it for that one.[quote=“Stanton, post:46, topic:428”]Good one. Let’s think about the best actor for this brandnew SW hero …[/quote]

I think I may learn.

Watched this one tonight and must say i´m a bit disappointed. It had everything in it´s favour; a great cast, a director i usually like a lot, revolutionaries etc. but allthough being decent fun there wasn´t much that stood out like in many similar spaghettis, and the music wasn´t anything special. I prefer Too Much Gold for One Gringo over this one!


(korano) #54

I too watched this one a few days ago on the brilliant Koch disc. But I’m of the opposite opinion. I realy enjoyed it. Steffen was good and Slaerno was great. I think the music is great and fits the adventure western style. Fun and active music for a fun and active movie.


(Dillinger) #55

I go with korano. For me it was rather a positive surprise. One of the few non-Hill/Spencer SW comedies I like.


(Stanton) #56

But it’s not a pure comedy. It’s one of these films which mixes parody and drama, which contains comedy and violence at the same time.

So there is no reason for the Spencerhill haters to avoid Train for Durango.


(Dillinger) #57

There are Sperncer/Hill haters? ???

Please Stanton, say this ain’t true :’(

[quote=“SARTANA DJANGO BALLADS, post:104, topic:176”]If you are talking of WORST FILM the Forum should surely concentrate on well known

ABYSMAL turkeys : Terence Hill/Bud Spencer Fat Slob "unfunny comedies"

I am amazed, shocked, disappointed if any other SWs are mentioned when Hill/Spencer
"comedies" are by miles the WORST SW EVER MADE, in fact are they even a SW ? :’([/quote]

Thanks alk0!!

Stanton vs SD

Clash of the Titans!!!

In fact SD never had a chance.

That’s the way all Spencer/Hill haters go. (An announcement by the Pedersoli police)
