been lurking arouind these parts for quite some time now, checking the Wiki on a regular basis, now I thought it’d be high time to finally register and pitch in myself.
My name’s Sebastian, both a Western- and a general film enthusiast. I’m particualarly interested in movies outside the mainstream, and keen to seek out rarities and obscurities. In that regard I’ve managed to build quite a decent international Western collection, not in a small part thanks to research conducted on this very site
Funny nough, even when talking with other self-proclaimed western fans, I am often genuinely surprised that people around here (Germany) know very little about Westerns outside of the US. Usually, they only know a handful of Eurowestern (mostly A Fistful of Dollars, Once Upon a Time in the West and a handful of Karl May movies, mybe even heard of Django but never really watched it) and tend to lump Eurowesterns and Spaghettiwesterns in together.
So for that reason (and because I’m somewhat of a regular watcher of online review videos myself), I’ve decided to start a little YouTube channel of my own (called, apropriately enough, Unamerican Westernshttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCx09_C9CInPNT0M3BJvTGRA/videos, where I’m going to post reviews of Westerns produced and shot outside the US at least once a month, both in english and german (So far it just contains both an english and a german review of “A Pistol for Ringo”, but I definitely intend to change that come January By the way, I’m always interested in feedback, even - or especially- critical comments, so feel free to fire away at me ). The plan is for that channel to host a broad variety of reviews of Westerns from different countries, be it Italy, Spain, Germany (both Western and Eastern), and even other places like Australia, South Korea or the Middle/South Americas.
Alright, enough of the shameless self promotion. Of course, I also want to partake in this community, because I’m always very interested in learning more about new or obscure Western movies and love to engage in conversation. So, if you’ll have me, I’d be glad being a part of this here community.
