(Novecento) #407

I would tend to look at it this way. The original “O Cangaceiro” film by Lima Barreto does not fit in the Spaghetti Western genre. The later “O’ Cangaceiro” (with the funny apostrophe) film by Giovanni Fago and starring Tomas Milian does fit in the genre.


#408

In no strict order…

Tepepa
The Dirty Outlaws
Viva Django
El Puro
California
Bandidos
Black Jack
Johnny Hamlet
The Bounty Killer
$10,000 Blood Money
They Call Him Cemetery
Blindman
The Ruthless Four
God Forgives… I Don’t!
If You Meet Sartana, Pray For Your Death
I am Sartana, Your Angel of Death
Have a Good Funeral, My Friend… Sartana Will Pay
Light the Fuse… Sartana is Coming!
A Stranger in Town
The Stranger Returns

Last call for any Alternative Top 20 changes.
I’ll be updating the list over the next couple of days.


(Phil H) #410

Updated for another year.

https://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/Alternative_Top_20#The_Insider.27s_Top_20_.28Tip_20.29

A few changes in position but only one film replaced.

Back comes A Pistol for Ringo and out goes Light the Fuse…Sartana is Coming!. Nice to see Ringo back in the list. The other major climber was Dead Men Ride but didn’t quite make it into the top 20. It’s all very close around the bottom really so a couple of votes one way or the other can get a film in or out very easily.


#411

Cool to see Ringo in there. I suppose it’s all a matter of principle.


(The Man With a Name) #412

I’m probably late with this but here’s mine:

  1. 10,000 Dollars for a Massacre
  2. Vengeance
  3. El Puro
  4. Taste of Killing
  5. Vengeance is Mine
  6. Death Sentence
  7. Bandidos
  8. Long Days of Vengeance
  9. God Forgives… I Don’t
  10. Sartana Does Not Forgive
  11. I Am Sartana… Pray for your Death
  12. Massacre Time
  13. Kill Them All And Come Back Alone
  14. A Genius, Two Partners and a Dupe
  15. Those Dirty Dogs
  16. The Deserter
  17. Full House For the Devil
  18. I Want Him Dead
  19. A Man Called Blade
  20. Sonny and Jed

I’ll probably get some hate for number 14. :smiley:


(Phil H) #413

Yes, a bit late to affect this year’s update but I’ll add it to the spreadsheet and will include next time.
Is this your first list or an update? If an update please re-post your previous one so I can see the changes easily.

No hate, just disappointment. :wink:


(Stanton) #414

We don’t hate, we laugh and feel sorry for you …


#415

Don’t worry, I know Stanton has lovely things to say about number 19 :wink:


(The Man With a Name) #416

No need. I’ll still be having a good time watching it. :laughing:


(The Man With a Name) #417

It’s my first attempt at an alternative top 20 but I think I rushed it a bit. Sonny and Jed should be higher and there’s a few films that I forgot about like Los Amigos, Cowards Don’t Pray and They Call Him Cemetery, which should probably be in there. It’s not an easy list to create, even worse than a top 20.


(Phil H) #418

Yes, the Alt 20 is harder to pick I think. Once you get past the obvious ones in the official T20 there are a lot of contenders that probably feel pretty equal. The good news is it doesn’t matter where you place a film in your alt 20 list as they all get 1 point each regardless. I chose that system for just this reason.
