SWDb February Recap

Let’s have a look at how February 2021 worked out for us in Spaghetti Western land.

As previously posted, we now use the :incoming_envelope: Newsletter category of our forums instead of our old Email-List. We have set up this forum category in a way that everyone is watching that it for new topics by default (you can opt out of this using the “bell” icon :bell: at the top right corner of that category). So you should have been notified of this very announcement with the little notification dot in the forums itself - or via email :mailbox_with_mail:, if you weren’t currently logged on.

:newspaper: NEW STUFF IN AND AROUND THE SWDB IN :spiral_calendar: FEBRUARY 2021:

  1. :film_strip: We are continuing to add pictures to the SWDb and also more and more soundtrack release info. We rely on your help here, please report errors, missing information, releases that aren’t listed, posters that we aren’t showing and much more, just message us, or post them, we take care of the rest!
    :arrow_right: Our Lost+Found category keeps being very popular, and we have a very good success rate. If you are ever looking for a movie, this is your place!
    :arrow_right_hook: …if you ever wanna see all the stuff that is changing in the SWDb, click “recent changes”… the SWDb gets better every day. With your help!

  4. :calendar: Now that our release calendar is filling up and first titles are about to appear, we will do some work very soon to make it look a bit more like the GCDb’s. In the meantime, please keep reporting new and upcoming releases, so we can add those to the SWDb. We also welcome tips about soundtrack and book releases!

On a sidenote, don’t forget to check out our sister websites, The Grindhouse Cinema Database for example also has a magnificent BluRay release calendar if you are into exploitation films. The Quentin Tarantino Archives (our original mothership) will among other things provide you with news of Tarantino’s first novel, and there is an abundance of reviews on all kinds of movies to discover at Furious Cinema. Its German-language sister baby Nischenkino is an avalanche of wild movie reviews on a daily basis!

Many thanks to all and everyone who contributed this month, in the SWDb proper, here in the forums, everyone who has emailed us, shared our posts on social media, listened in on the podcast or donated a few bucks our way. See you next month with a roundup of updates.
