[quote=“Ify”]I agree, the dialogue in Volume 1 was excellent, I loved it. However, the dialogue in Volume 2 was not up to scratch, puts on Bill’s voice don’t you agree Miss. Driver? Sorry I mean Blaze Alpha?
I thought the dialogue in Vol.2 was solid and reflective of the spaghetti western genre. Go back and watch a film like
“Once Upon A Time In The West” and you’ll see what I mean. All the dialouge was slow and methodical, taking it’s time to reach whatever point that needed to be made. The “Massacre at Two Pines” chapter is the best example of Serigo Leone stylized dialouge. People’s attention spans aren’t very good these days so slow paced dialouge is viewed as a negative. Once again it’s all about the dialouge fitting the theme and concept of the film.
Dude, the pace of the dialogue didn't bother me one bit. It was what they were talking about that did. The things they said wasn't that interesting at all. On the whole it wasn't very witty or funny, and didn't contain any other Tarantino attributes which we have come to love. The dialogue in Once Upon A Time In The West and The Good, The Bad And The Ugly was excellent. It was way better than that of volume 2. Off course there were moments of majic with the dialogue in Vol. 2 but, for the most part, it was pretty borring. The dialogue in those spaghetti westerns are very intersting and not at all borring. The films were very cleverly written and that is one of the things that made Leone's characters so larger than life and so brilliant to watch and listen to.
How was The Massacre At Two Pines chapter reminisent (sp) of Leone's dialogue? I don't think it was at all. As I said before, Leone's dialogue is excellent, and very entertaining...
Man With No Name: You see, in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend: Those with loaded guns and those who dig. You dig.
Tuco: I like big fat men like you. When they fall they make more noise.
One Armed Man: I've been looking for you for 8 months. Whenever I should have had a gun in my right hand, I thought of you. Now I find you in exactly the position that suits me. I had lots of time to learn to shoot with my left.
[Tuco kills him with the gun he has hidden in the foam]
Tuco: When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk.
[Tuco is protesting his innocence]
Tuco: I'm innocent! I'm just a simple farmer!
Sheriff: (shows Tuco the wanted poster)Come here, you! Just a simple farmer, eh? Who is this?
Sheriff: Yeah, you.
Tuco: Who says so? You can't even read!(sheriff rolls up the poster) Go ahead, roll it up! I'll give a good idea where to put it!
Morton: Not bad. Congratulations. Tell me, was it necessary that you kill all of them? I only told you to scare them.
Frank: People scare better when they're dying.
Frank: How can you trust a man who wears both a belt and suspenders? The man can't even trust his own pants.
Harmonica: I saw three of these dusters a short time ago, they were waiting for a train. Inside the dusters, there were three men.
Harmonica: Inside the men, there were three bullets.
I could go on and on, but I won't. Have I proved my point yet?
