Savage Guns

Wow great updates. Can more folks check what they can dig up on Hulu, Netflix, Roku, etc?


(Jonny Powers) #10

On Roku:

Cowboy Classics
And God Said to Cain
Any Gun Can Play
Between God, the Devil, and a Winchester
Beyond the Law
Blindman
Boot Hill

(Might have missed some Eurowesterns masquerading as American ones, but I think I got all the proper spags)

Saddle Up Westerns
It Can Be Done Amigo
Death Rides a Horse

The Grindhouse Channel
God’s Gun

Dorado Films
Dynamite Jim
Four Dollars for Revenge
Gold of the Brave
Man Alone
Pistol Packin’ Preacher
Ride and Kill
7 Devils on Horseback
The Federal Man
Three Musketeers of the West
A Train for Durango
Django Shoots First
A Town Called Hell

Those are all the channels I could find that had spaghetti’s on them, back when I set my Roku up. Maybe newer channels popped up since them. As far as the quality goes, I expect the first three to be of substandard quality, with Dorado I would assume it’s screener level quality. They have a nice selection of other stuff on there too, like their OOP Eurospy films, however you have to pay a buck to watch it without ads popping up every 15-20 min or so. I found that you can avoid the ones inside the film if you back out when they begin and then hit resume, but they’re still a distracting pain in the ass.

Edit: Hulu has next to nothing when it comes to westerns in general, much less spags (not even a western section in the films). Only a handful of American ones is all I could find.

I came across a streaming platform on my Android TV today called Snag Films. It’s like a sort of bargain-basement Netflix, but if you like a cult indie b-picture, an under-the-radar documentary, a forties creature feature or a spot of Blaxploitation, there’s a harmless distraction or two to be found there. The Brain That Wouldn’t Die, Dementia 13, Jive Turkey, Bela Lugosi Meets a Brooklyn Gorilla, Jesus Christ:Vampire Hunter, Reefer Madness etc. etc. You get the picture. And it’s all free, obviously. Anyway, They’ve got Trinity and Sartana Are Coming (Siciliano, 1972) on there as well.


(Stork Vulture) #12

Amazon Prime has added a few titles, don’t know if it’s USA only or for how long, Amazon Prime seems to have quicker turnover than Netflix to me, but I could be imagining things.

Added titles:

Blood Money (HD)
Get Mean (HD)
Django Kill (HD)
The Good, The Bad, & the Ugly (HD)
Duck You Sucker (HD)
Django (HD)
A Bullet for the General (HD)
Keoma (HD)
Cut-Throats Nine (poor quality full frame)


(Jonny Powers) #13

Hulu added a few for Hulu Plus:
Dollars Trilogy
Texas, Adios
Django Kill
Beyond the Law

There’s some more, that’s just from memory

Do any of you use Kodi (formerly XBMC)? It’s an open source media player, entertainment hub and software application. It can be downloaded to Windows, Android and iOS devices as well as some other smart TV and hardware devices (Amazon Fire TV, Raspberry Pi, etc.). It takes some figuring out at first but there is a wealth of channels to be had on there, streaming old movies, new movies, the latest TV shows, classic TV, streaming and archived sports events, premium TV channels, porn if you’re into that, ahem, streaming music, podcasts, you name it.

Anyway, long story short: One of the most popular and essential add-ons out there for Kodi is an add-on called Phoenix, which provides a number of channels. One of those channels is called “One242415” and it’s bloody excellent. Hundreds of movies, music and TV shows, in categories such as “Martial Arts”, “Zombies”, “Quentin Tarantino”, “Blaxploitation”, “Retro TV”, “Sci-Fi”, “Animated Films For Grown-Ups”, “Clint Eastwood”, “Monsters”, “IMDb Top 300”, and so on. It’s a treasure trove. They’ve also got a “Westerns” category (and a “Best Westerns” category. And a “Gunslingers” category) with a raft of western titles from Stagecoach to The Hateful Eight, and among those western titles are the following spags:

Once Upon a Time in the West
Red Sun
Villa Rides
Chato’s Land
Chino (there’s a “Charles Bronson” category, as you can perhaps tell)
A Fistful of Dollars
For a Few Dollars More
The Good, the Bad & the Ugly
They Call Me Trinity
Duck, You Sucker
My Name is Nobody
Django

As I say though, there are loads of westerns on there and that’s just a part of what’s on offer.


(Sebastian) #15

Most of these “channels” however are not very legal


(Asa) #16

The channels aren’t, no. If they’re not licensed to host and distribute the protected and copyrighted material they’re broadcasting, they could find themselves in a bit of bother. However, we as end users are okay because watching streamed content is legal as long as that’s all we’re doing. If we’re ripping the content and then copying it onto distributable discs or sharing it to Cinemageddon or other torrent site, then we’re acting illegally too because that’s copying and distribution. But just watching streamed content is the same as watching movies that have been uploaded to YouTube without permission. Eventually YouTube spot it or someone alerts them to it and the film is taken down, but the people who viewed it have done nothing wrong.

Eh…
Let’s not get there …

I’ve been meaning to update for a few weeks. Amazon Prime Instant Video has been loading up loads, and I mean LOADS, of euro-content and more with a large amount of Spaghetti Westerns and Eurowesterns and quite a lot of poliziotteschi, peplum, some gialli, Spencer & Hill non-westerns, 100s of Hong Kong, etc. I don’t know if this is only in the USA or not.

I presume that these are all licensed, or at the very least, legal to watch as Amazon is vouching for them. For what it’s worth, most of the titles have appropriate posters and correct info. Most of these spaghettis are of very good picture quality for streaming, most in true widescreen, not letterboxed 4:3, though I will note when there are differences.

Some of these are from Blue Underground and have been there for awhile. Some list a studio, such as BU, EPIX, or Wu Tang or All Channel Films (and seem legit as such), some have nebulous studio listings that only list the name of the director. Does that mean they are sketchy? I don’t know, that’s up to Amazon and the rights holders in USA for I all I can tell. Also, there’s new titles being added seemingly every day, I think 8 titles have been added in the last week.

Some are even available to purchase for $2.99, and I bought them all those just in case they leave Prime streaming. Just a warning, videos on Prime can last a short time and be gone without notice, and sometimes brought back without notice, so watch them while you can.

The Spaghetti titles, the Amazon title listed first exactly as they have them, english unless otherwise noted, I’m listing the ratio as from my tv, some of these 16x9 listings could really be 1:85. Some titles appear twice in Amazon with different posters from different studios, I will note where relevant. The dates I use are from SWDB, some are different with Amazon or missing.

Holy shit :open_mouth: You think you could list some poliziotteschi? I’ve been trying to keep track of em, specifically the free with prime ones
