[quote=“scherpschutter, post:160, topic:148”]if you’re asking for other ‘Django movies’:

I’d start with Diecimila dollari per un massacro ($ 10.000 for a Massacre):

Often called the best ‘false Django sequel’ (there’s no Django in the title, but the protagonist is called Django)[/quote]

I never think of this as a Django film although you are righjt of course, Garko’s character is called Django in it. Either way it is definitely to be recommended in any circumstance. Great film.

i loved the masacre at the fort chariba! 8) the opening it’s really explosive!!!
i have seen thin movie over a million times!! the strange thing is i liked sartana\parolini, much much more but sartana i have seen it
maybe 150 times and django over a million times!! that’s the weird thing

Also a must see: Django il Bastardo
http://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/Django_il_bastardo
A rather unique movie, but not everybody likes it

And finally: Django Kill/If you live … Shoot!
http://www.spaghetti-western.net/index.php/Se_sei_vivo_spara
The most outrageous and surreal of all spaghettis

And like El Topo says: always judge for yourself ![/quote]

Don’t forget Viva Django!

baldi he’s not corbucci

Django is so great, I smile every time I think of the Fort Shariba (sp?): “Nathaniel’s girls are here men, ha ha!” :smiley:
Some say Corbucci stole the plot from Fistful of Dollars but I say even if it’s true he made it so damned fun that I don’t really care.


(TheBigSmokedown) #167

So?


(autephex) #168

And even if he did, Leone stole it from Yojimbo… but I don’t really see why anyone would bother making this argument in the first place.


(Stalagmite) #169

“anoyone” is obviously a Leone fanatic like most of the general populace who manage to actually take a peak at other spaghetti movies from time to time.


(autephex) #170

But the plots are not even very similar. They both have two warring gangs, but other than that, I don’t really see any similarity. The town is fully deserted except for the saloon, so its not really a town at all, and Django doesn’t make each gang kill each other off by infiltrating each side either…


(Stalagmite) #171

I agree, but tell that to mainstream audiences tho have Leone, Tarantino, and Scorsese as their favorite directors. I’m generalizing here of course but I just get fed up with people who strictly narrow themselves to Leone in the genre. You know, those IMDB people. :wink:


(scherpschutter) #172

No, they originate from the same idea, but they’re definitely different movies
Corbucci used the idea too for Minnesota Clay, he was fascinated by this idea of the loner, a sort of wandering samurai, but turned it into a much darker vision in Django.

It’s hard to invent something really new, something completely original. Look at the great writers in history: Sophocles, Shakespeare, Dostojevski - they often used trite (or even existing) storilines, but turned them into something that people had never experienced before. Both Fistful and Django were such movies: they weren’t original, still they were like no film had ever been.


(TheBigSmokedown) #173

That’s quite generous.

However, I will say that Fistful of Dollars was of course based on Yojimbo, which in turn was based on Dashiell Hammett’s brilliant Red Harvest; so the point is somewhat moot anyway.


(autephex) #174

I am in total agreement here. Call it inspiration, borrowing, or stealing, its all the same. What matters its what’s done with the idea to add a new vision. I could care less if different directors repeatedly remake the same film, or musicians remake the same song, etc… as long as what’s produced in the end is true to the artist’s unique interpretation of the idea

Just booked my ticket for this.

Django with Franco Nero in attendance is pretty difficult to pass up.
Any other UK forumites going?
I presume Austin Fisher is as I believe he is giving some sort of academicky lectury type thing at some point during the day. Is that right Austin?


(sartana1968) #176

django continue wins fans from all over the world 8)


(Austin Fisher) #177

Sorry Phil. Failed to check this until now. I am indeed giving an academicky lectury type thing at Cine Excess. I’m speaking on Friday afternoon, though, and Django is being shown on the Saturday I believe (it’s a three day event; starts tomorrow). I’ll be there all three days.

I’ve got to sit through Cannibal Holocaust tomorrow evening… Passed up a chance to go to Radio 4’s The News Quiz for that… Hmm.

There’s a short interview with Franco Nero in the Guardian today about Django:

This article made my day (well, considering the time more like my night… or very early morning), Mr. Nero always seem like such a nice guy. Great read!
