[quote=“El Topo, post:10, topic:2452”]I Think I saw A fistfull of Dolars when I was six years old, in a small Portuguese village in a traveling cinema, well it was a SW (but I think to remember that barrel scene), but the one who real got me was GBU, I was a kid and that final scene was just too much, this after a great film, diferent from everything I’ve seen before.
IMO if a SW was made today in Almeria in classical way and with some production value (a big producer, not big millions avatar style, but not also borrowing money from you girlfriend to do it) some stars (Pitt, Clive owen, those Mexican actors who knows ) maybe Del toro for the direction, it would be a hit, a Zapata one with connections to the reality of today’s world, like I said it would be a sure hit (at least for me ;D), I would go to Almeria just to be on the set and to appear on it as some Mexican Federal Soldier that’s dies in 5 seconds or a Campesino or someone running from the Salon or Cantina.
It’s not a question of "those were the days"syndrome, but it was much better to grow up with icons like the SW heroes (Eastwood, Nero, Spencer, Hill/Trinita), Bruce Lee, Indiana Jones, even fuckin Rambo and Robocop, than what kids have this days computer game heroes and none is Pacman.[/quote]
Nicely said. there trying to remake RoboCop I dont know how they can do it 1987 (year I was born) the movie is so ahead of its time the sequals were pretty bad but its a great stand alone film in some ways its like a western too
