      do NOT watch bone tomahawk. Worst fricking movie ever. It's very obviously just some special effects guy's wet dream of a movie where they fill in plot with le ebique effects. All of the characters suck and are jobbers and the fact that it's a "western" is just a gimmick, it could take place in any other time tbh. Only Kurt Russel movie I've ever been disappointed in

        Not the worst ever but incredibly overrated. The real big gimmick is treated as an afterthought that it makes most of the movie to get to and if you watched it from a rec, odds are the big payoff was already spoiled for you.
        Whoever compared this unfavorably to The Burrowers in the /hor/ threads had it right. The Burrowers used a similar premise but handled it much more evenly and effectively.

      >Once Upon a Time in the West
      I'm really gonna have to make a separate thread about this stinker of a movie. I'm not saying this movie is awful and it is better than many standard formula westerns. But it's one of the most boring spaghetti westerns made and it's just a lesser version of Fistful of Dollars or Good Bad Ugly. I like Charles Bronson too but he brings nothing to this movie unlike in Death Hunt (1981). Once upon a time has stale supporting characters, shit villain, slow story and a completely unexpressive Bronson.

        Mostly it's the time period they're made in but I'd say the difference is.

        >revisionist
        More critical of the old west myth, lead character is usually a rougher more morally questionable person than the classic good guy hero of old.
        >Anti
        An inversion of the wild west myth, usually portrays the west as morally bankrupt with no honour or justice.
        >Revivalist
        Later films that try to pay tribute to the sprit of the classic/revisionist films.

    I watched the original Django 3 days on Prime and the visuals were pretty great. I think it was a 4K scan but the voice acting was awful. The actor who voices Django sound so bored and the movie is hard to enjoy because of that

      The actor that voices Django is the actor that plays Django. He speaks English. And I disagree, he doesn't sound "bored" he just speaking straight forward. He doesn't need to put inflection in his tone because that's not the character. Watch The Mercenary and Companeros and you'll know what I mean.

        It's not. That's one of the few movies where Franco Nero didn't dub himself because it was so early in his career before Django made him a star. That's why you don't hear his strong Italian accent

          Watching a YT clip of Django I honestly don't remember him sounding like that. I typically watch them in Italian but I have watched it with the English dub. And yeah he sounds bad from the cli I heard. I guess my memory is taking other Nero performances into account.

    There's a ton of good ones from the 1950s including many low profile titles that are barely heard of. Virtually all big studio westerns of that era are worth a watch. They might not all be masterpieces, they might be forgettable, one might blend into another, but they're cosy, entertaining, and have great scenery. They knew what they were doing.

          It does, it doesn't even have a fricking grand duel in it. Just some homosexual who does acrobatics and takes away screen time from LVC. I was deeply disappointed by that one.

              Both of them had acrobstics guys, but Sabata actually had duels in it. The entirety of Grand Duel consists of people actively avoiding duels and the one at the end is a cop out because LVC just snipes the bad guys from a distance. It was just lame.

              >I was gonna mention Sabata, that's a fun movie. Day of Anger has good moments but it has poor pacing, which is a problem with a lot of spaghetti westerns. Grand Duel sucks. Sartana is decent, haven't seen the other ones.

              The average spaghetti western has poor pacing, poor scenery, and unconvincing sets. Everyone knows what the acting is like. Outside of the few kino exceptions, they are straight slop. Diarrhea slop.

              There's never any real story or sense of history to them, as you might get with some of the better US westerns. They are primarily driven by ridiculous scenes of violence strung together, and boring poser protagonists we are supposed to think are badass.

              Some have better pacing than others. When done right, they have a certain unique charm to them, but I'm not gonna defend them as high art either. They're mostly cheap films and can be enjoyable when they understand what they are.

                The guy does acrobatics at the very beginning of the movie. And you really misremember the movie, there's a duel. LVC shoots the guy from the wagon in the past, the black and white scenes, that's why the sons are trying to kill the acrobatics guy. But LVC kills all 3 at the end IN A DUEL! You really don't like these movies and I don't know why you're in here complaining.

                I remember the guy doing acrobatics throughout the whole movie, but what really disappointed me was a lack of "Grand Duels" in the movie. I was hoping for intense standoffs done in the Leone style, but from what I remember every duel is a one-sided affair that lacks any sort of dramatic tension.

                I do like these kinds of movies, which is why I thought this one could be better. Maybe I need to watch it again, but there are so many better LVC movies I could be watching instead. It's not even the worst of them, just mediocre overall.

                THE Grand Duel. It's not The Grand Duels. And you don't even like Day of Anger, I can't take your opinion serious. I don't know why you're only watching the movie for le epic duels. I guess that's why you're so disappointed in some of these movies. You're looking for something while ignoring everything else. The finale is satisfying, albeit quick.

                Well if it's called "Grand Duel", then I expect some degree of decent dueling. The one at the end isn't even grand, even you admit that it's "quick". Also, I didn't say I don't like "Day of Anger", it just has an issue with pacing because the action climax is the musket joust, even though there's still 30 minutes left of the movie after that.

                You know what's a good LVC movie? Picrel, even though nobody has ever heard of it.

      Somewhat, but also skeptical. Will see it on big screen and give it a chance.

      The scenary and scope of it looks impressive, but the actors all look so boring and generic, even if they are well known. Looks like the cast of a 1990s TV movie. I miss the older movies where they had a good mix of character actors, guys with mean-looking faces, craggy old- timers etc.
