Cool, thanks - keep up the great work

  1. The Great silence, which is certainly his masterpiece, Klaus Kinski giving one of his best roles ever. Untouchable score
  2. Navajo Joe, Burt Reynolds is fierce and Morricone’s score is unforgetable.
    3 Johnny Oro , Mainly because of legendary actor Mark Damon, and Carolo Savina’s score. Very Underated.
  3. Minnesota clay, first Piero Piccioni’s score is unforgetable and Cameron Mitchell is so over the top.
  4. Django is cool, In my top 20 for sure, but i find myself watching Corbucci’s other films. .
  5. The hellbenders seems more like a civil war film then a western, and I need to get a copy of the dvd which may change my opinion of the film, since ive only watched it on a laptop. The score is cool.

**** The Mercernary was good, the first half at least, but i haven’t seen the whole thing in one sitting from start to finish. Waiting to buy this on dvd. The other Corbucci films I havent seen.

Updating this since Ive seen a few others, the one thing about Corbucci is what ive seen could all be in my top 30 or so, and this can change often. This is were Im at for now.

1.The Great Silence Still my favorite
2.The Hellbenders Gets better with each viewing.
3 Mnnesota Clay Corbucci’s gem that no one talks about.
4.The Mercenary Finally got a good copy of this and loved it.
5 Sonny and Jed Wish this had an english friendly dvd and this might go higher.
6.Ringo and His Golden Pistol, Never get tired of this.
7.Django Great film, but nero has better roles.
8.Navajo Joe, Excellent film, nontheless.
9. Compañeros I didn’t dislike at all, yet I find myself watching Corbucci’s other films.

The White, the Yellow and the Black

Hm. The more I look at my little chart there, the more I wonder if I actually prefer The Hellbenders and Navajo Joe over the others. It’s just that the quality inherent in the four more illustrious titles above those is undeniable. The Specialists, I never really took to. I’ve only seen it the once though, maybe it would benefit from that all-important second look. Not especially intrigued at the thought, however.

To be honest, the only one from those I’ve yet to see which genuinely intrigues me is Sonny & Jed. I’m not sure I care all that much about chasing the others down. That’s not to say I won’t, but I’m in no real hurry.

The dreaded moment when you realize you’ve eaten all your favorite cookies and only lemon-, peppermint- and coffee-flavored ones are left in the jar.
