Arizona Colt (Michele Lupo, 1966)


(Bad Lieutenant) #41

I got a button on the lower left that says: MERGE TOPICS. I can’t imagine I’m the only one. But you’re welcome, of course.


(Phil H) #42

The fact that you knew that that button was there and also figured out how to use it is worthy of my thanks alone :wink:

Second gemma western i saw,first was ‘‘day of anger’’


(Dillinger) #44

You deserve a button like that!

Good title for a spaghetti western:

[size=3]Bottone per un Cattivo Tenente[/size]

I guess only damn deputies and bad lieutenants get those buttons! The Basterds! :wink: :smiley:


(scherpschutter) #47

Yes, but Glourious Basterds

Does anyone besides me realise you all took up almost two pages of jokes about buttons? :smiley: :-\


(Chris_Casey) #50

Yes…but, they were damn good jokes about damn good people get those damn good buttons, damn it!
:wink: ;D :smiley:


(Bad Lieutenant) #51

Perhaps there´s a readily existing topic about buttons that I can merge this one with.

Sounds like a good idea BL ;).

[quote=“alk0, post:28, topic:552”]And now comes the best part of my mini-review: i liked De Masi’s score a lot. Even the title song. Surely something wrong is happening to me :stuck_out_tongue:

Haha, I actually like the main song as well!


(Dillinger) #53

You damn basterd!

The good reverend is obviously talking complete bollocks again! I watched this last night and was thoroughly entertained - 5 stars!

Well a third offering worked wonders - must’ve been in just the right mood (state of inebriation) because it all gelled perfectly.

I loved the cynical an mercenary aspects of Gemma’s character who’d do dirty deeds if there was a chance of climbing in a filly’s panties at the end; I enjoyed Fernando doing what he does best as the cliche’d Gordo; I laughed at the drunked but honourable antics of Whisky, and I quite fancied Jane myself and understood her changing character from sexual martyr to willing partner in light of the townspeoples cowardice.

Well at least we agree on this! Tosser!

Glad you did some re-evaluating on this one, Rev., as I think it is one of the best Spaghetti Westerns out there!

Just took me a while “… to think about that”. Got there in the end.
It’s what I love about this genre - you can come back to a film and see it afresh sometimes.

Better late than never brother.
This is one of my favourite Gemma films. I love the back somersault he does out of the tree. Great stuff.

Absolutely!

I used to HATE the film CEMETERY WITHOUT CROSSES; but, I gave it another chance when it first appeared on DVD out of Japan a few years ago. Once I saw it again, it became a personal favorite!

I hope that the guys at Wild East get the chance to do the re-release of ARIZONA COLT that they had planned. Seems like they have located a better print source and are just trying to work out some rights issues. I don’t expect this to happen any time real soon, though, as they have been monkeying around with this re-release project for well over a year and a half, now.
Still, though, I think ARIZONA COLT is deserving of another release (with English audio)!

Yeah, me too!
I already said this in a previous post here; but, this one ranks way up there on the list of my favorite Gemma films.
RETURN OF RINGO is probably my most favorite—but, this one is right behind it!

Gotta go along with that now m’self. That fall out the tree is very, very good and I agree about the print. As can be seen from that shot I posted in “rock”, it is very grainy with a bit of colour separation at times. Still, seen a lot worse than this of course, and I hardly notice this sort of poor picture quality nowadays (particularly after a couple of scoops - I’d always presumed it was me that was a bit ‘grainy’ :P).
