NEW STUFF IN AND AROUND THE SWDB IN SEPTEMBER 2022:
New around the SWDb:
This month saw plenty of improvements in the quality of our DVD and BluRay pages, we added tons of posters and other pictures and fixed some holes wherever we could, including some incorrect Spanish film titles and much more.
WHERE WE NEED YOUR HELP:
** We are still trying to get in touch with the person who used to run this website SPAGHETTI WESTERN DATABASE if anyone has an idea, please send us a message.
** We are also trying to locate our friend from Finland who went by the name of Shobary (and had a popular SW website with that title).
Areas of improvement:
** We can use more information on a lot of home video releases in the SWDb from France, Czechia, Poland, Brazil, Japan and many other countries. Please, if you see gaps in the SWDb, please reach out with corrections. Language tracks, subtitles, regioncode, extras and much more!
** We’d love to establish more than one person as SWDb-ambassador per country or region, to have a reliable network of friends having an eye on developments in that region (home video releases, screenings, etc.) but also help us add and maintain information in the SWDb related to that region (film titles, posters, reviews, etc.). Let us know if you want to become active with the website!
** Let us know if you want to help with our new master calendar Calendar - The Spaghetti Western Database and company directory Company directory - The Spaghetti Western Database. We still need help to fill those with information, please get in touch!
And as always: join the SWDb, help out, it will make it better
New and upcoming discs:
There are already some super interesting titles lined up for the rest of the year and some are known for next year, too. But let’s look back first. The new releases in September were
Highlights include the first ever HD release of Ace High, albeit as I am typing this it seems it has been delayed or something like that. There is also the next release from Explosive Media and a whole ranger of other new and re-releases. And in October we can look forward to
First and foremost a new release of Death Rides a Horse in Germany, but Explosive Media is also putting out a new and better release of Arizona Colt. Obviously, in case you missed it last month, some of the big news included the announcement (finally) of a UK home video release of The Big Gundown. Click here to learn everything about that edition, and if you’re an Amazon UK shopper, please do use the SWDB’s link to buy or pre-order it. So…
Visit the SWDb home video release calendar which we really do update sometimes several times a day, it is one of the most reliable things on the SWDb right now (and most popular).
Boot Hill Cemetery.
Our head of obits, @Tom_B had to update the boot hill cemetery with 7 new obituaries over the course of the last four weeks. This includes fravorite badass Henry Silva. Rest in peace. Check out “Cemetery with crosses”
Please get in touch if you can or want to review movies, BluRays, soundtracks or books, in any language. We could use more reviews in Italian, Spanish, French and other languages, too!
