Vote for Our Official Top 20

[quote=“Stanton, post:2391, topic:190”]Of course the list should be made of those which are the most fun too watch, which are the most fascinating, which have the most impact on one.

Yes, but how comes that you have changed your taste so more or less completely. Or did your earlier lists not really represent your favourite films?
I think it is unusual that one’s list changes so considerably when one has already watched many Spags over a long period. My lists change too over the years, cause some films change when rewatching them, but basically my taste remains the same, and my new list is close to the previous one.[/quote]

Well, of course the earlier list represented my favourite movies, and they are still movies i love to watch.
And it’s not that, these movies were suddenly placed on the tail of my list. They are near, mostly on places from 21. to 40. :slight_smile:
Difference between them and spaghs, which are on my list now, is almost microscopic, but it’s there.
I have seen these, let’s say classics, multiple times, and source of inspiration in some of them was muted for me to some extent.
And in spaghs on the new list, this sources of inspiration and fascination have risen. To some of these sources i didn’t pay much attention before.
My recent re-watch of My Name Is Nobody is a perfect example of this re-exploration of inspirative source, of which i thought it wasn’t there. But it was, i just didn’t look at this movie in proper mode.

Ok. that’s interesting

Hi Django! Always good when one of our less active members abandons The Great Silence and joins the rest of us in The Unholy Four(um). And it’s doubly pleasing when that new amigo places Django Kill so high in his affections. :smile:

Hehe, I just came up with an idea. How about we list our WORST 20 SW’s? I imagine there’s plenty of films to fit into that category LOL. I’d speculate that “The Great Adventure” would be at the top (or would it be the bottom?) of many people’s lists. :grin:

Just realized the forum is ‘live’ as was reading the new Top 20 and the above post popped up and time changed from 1m to 2m. :sunglasses:

There’s a modest but long-running thread on that very subject kicking around somewhere, although it hasn’t seen much action in awhile.

Welcome back btw SNW500! Now don’t go wandering off like that again! Stick around! :smile:

Thanks last.caress. I’ll check it out. Surely I’ll find “Apache Blood” on that list too :smile:

Apache Blood is literally the worst movie I have ever seen. And not in a “so bad it’s good” way either, it’s simply an affront to cinema. But despite its appearance on Mill Creek’s infamous 44-movie Spaghetti Western box set, it’s actually an American picture, so it shouldn’t turn up on that thread at all.

I’ve got ya beat last.caress. I didn’t even watch the whole film. IIRC I pulled out the DvD in disgust…after 5 or 10 minutes of watching a pair of moccasins running around the woods. LoL

There will probably be the usual new year’s update of the forum’s Top 20 in a few days.

So everybody whom Santa Claus(e) brought a new list may post it here in the next few days. Or not …

It took me about 20 minutes to make this list, but I’m almost sure I forgot about a title or two (or five) and tomorrow it will break my heart.

Well, you can change it, Or you can post a new one every day (but don’t take this too literal).

But if you change an older list I most likely won’t notice it, and the change won’t be counted for the big list.
