The Suspiria remake. Just looking at the runtime I know it’s going to be a total bore.
Trying to decide between my Blu Rays of Black Jack or Oggi a Me…Domani a Te!, or my DVDs of La Morte non Conta di Dollari or Sonora for my viewing either tonight, Friday, or Saturday. I plan to write about all of them in my blog at some point.
I’m considering Antonio Marghrettis THE LAST HUNTER, haven’t seen it in 8 years or something. Don’t even remember if I liked it. Any fans of it here?
Watched it for the first time a few months ago … it’s not exactly good, in the traditional sense of the word, but it is oddly compelling - Got through it all in one sitting … there’s enough low budget thrills and spills to keep it moving along.
In the “real world”, it would get a 3/10 … but with it’s SW connections, to a genre fan, it’s worth 6/10.
Didn’t get myself time to watch it, but will try again tomorrow. Thanks! It’s whorth a rewatch.
Definitely my favourite US Clint Western.
I quite liked it, too, but I tend to like everything Marghertti made. I remember it being a sort of Apocalypse Now meets The Deer Hunter. Obviously not quite in the same league as those films.
Silverado. Yes. I feel it. It’s going to change my life.
Watched it a couple of days ago. I made a few minor changes to a review i wrote about ten years ago, will have another look at it tomorrow morning and will then load it up on my Blog
Could that place be … Silverado ??
Very good, looking forward to read it. (I was actually preparing for the watch for a few days. This film can’t be taken lightly.)
An hour in, and the CGI faces haven’t been too distracting so far.
Been spending this week watching Sergei Bondarchuk’s Voyna i Mir (War and Peace), amazing and beautiful film.
The source novel isn’t bad either
Yes, one can recognize good books by their possibilities to serve as a film’s source …
Update: This film became a chore. Like @aldo said, it seemed like a parody of a Scorsese film at times.
Thought I’d mention, this week I re-watched Taxi Driver which is just in a different league from ‘‘The Irishman’’ and how refreshing to see De Niro giving 100% - His performance and the entire movie feel really fresh and vital, a stark contrast to what is on offer these days … most of us here respect Scorsese as one the greats but you can’t make excuses or pardon a long boring film even when it’s by Marty and the dream team.
It’s basically The Expendables: Italian Edition.
Aldo, you’re an Irishman, so where’s the movie about you??
Still in pre-production! LOL
Only a few more hours to go then
