Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:high plains drifter mystery?
« on: July 26, 2004, 10:54:15 PM »
I totally agree. The whole thing about the movie, is the mysterious and supernatural feelings you get from it. That's what seperated from clint's other westerns.

lol, yeah that is true. EVERYONE knows the GBU theme. But ey' that's becuase it was so different, and good.

I have to agree with you on the first part of your reply. The movie does semm pretty lengthy compared to AFFOD. Alot of the movie seems drawn out, especially durring the last hour. But the second part of your reply, About the scores, I have to dissagree. My opinion is that FAFDM had the best overall score. TGTBTU had the most memorable. ^_^

I have to agree with you there. Clint always had an intense look about him. And when he'd channel those emmotions, they really guided the viewer. And according to clint, the emptiest barrels are usually the emptiest. So obviously, most of his characters don't have extensive lines. And this was really evident in OJW. He was pretty much on the top of his game (acting wise anyway)

I really don't think Cleef's Character was intended to be really strong in the first place. I think he was supposed to be a sneaky, smart killer. Not a tough guy. He was put into a situation he couldn't avoid. So it's kind of obvious he would be nervous. His character is used to working on advantage; and he is now on the other end...and well I can imagine it'd be nerve racking. Especially with your life on the line.

haha, Bridges was better than I heard it to be. Just and Hang em'. I learned not to listen to what the general public has to say. I dunno, I have to rate a film for myself. It's just a thing I have. Many don't like hang em' high. A friend of mine told me that it was terrible and borring. Now, being a big clint fan, I was skeptical. I watched it, and really liked it. It was a change of pace. more of a "what's next!?" than the regular shoot em' up, good vs. evil.

Hang em' high was not a low class film to me at all. It really was a western that didn't say "hey it's okay to kill and shoot em' up, it's normal! we're western!" It was more realistic in a political sense. It questioned our government, and our leaders, our morals. It showed us, the right path isn't always the most clear. Becuase there's alot in our line of vision. Such as clint's love interest in the film.

Hmm..I'm not sure, I'd have to watch it again. It's possible he just undressed., then put it on the other side when he dressed again   ;D

What do you mean ? Do you copy the photo's ? or what, I'm sorry I'm not following. I've been a fan of drawing myself, but I've only tried doing clint a few times. I would like to see them if you ever got them scanned

Hmmmmm.....Well It's pretty good, except fdr the mortimer and ramon thing. Personally, I just think The stories were done in no particular order or fasion. And sergio had a habit of reusing actors. But I do admit In TGTBTU, the poncho played a role or signifigance to serigo's previous movies.

point well taken. But I assume that's why the stories' feelings change in the second film. So I guess it comes down to whatever the preference of the viewer is. Or maybe that's what everything comes down to in movies? lol

ah, so morality with a cause is worth the fight is the issue?

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Pale Rider
« on: July 21, 2004, 08:33:38 PM »
hmm..Nice comments here, alota good points. I always saw pale rider, high plains drifter and unfrogiven really similiar. They all kinda question morality, (guns, killing, women) The ending between High plains drifter, pale rider and Unforgiven, really reminded me of each other..

well FAFDM does have a more complex script, and it does dig a bit deeper into the characters and who they are. It also gave Clint to try his chemistry with supporting main characters. (which worked out really well, and I think is why it worked even better in TGTBTU)

Clint Eastwood Westerns / Re:Tuco the main character of TGTBTU?
« on: July 21, 2004, 08:22:10 PM »
I have to agree with Tempest; He really was the grey between the Black and white; which made him a more dimensional character. You could really connect with the Tuco in the film, becuase he did have a range of complexity that Lee Van Cleef or Clint didn't have due to their stiff black and white, bad and good roles. Not to mention Eli had so much energy, he lit up the screen ^_^

hmm...Well I've gone over this so many times in my head. Over and over. Dates, signs, and even types of locations used. Even though there are connections, there are also many differences. Too many for me. So I treat them all as seperate, yet similiar pieces of work ^_^

I have to admit myself, The movie had an epic quality that seemed to be missing in some of the other Malpaso films. It brought back that Leone feelign we all feel so warm about.
