wow, awesome!! Quentin should make lists like that all the time and give them to us. :slight_smile:


#3

Awww! Tight! I don’t know how anyone can even rank some of those higher… A lot of them are just pure greatness. I can’t put them in order. I have to stay on topic though. Shit. I got nothin else to say. Movies.

Via text it says in the opening credits of Kill Bill Vol.1 that it is “dedicated to master filmmaker Kinji Fukasaku” what is Quentin’s absolute fave Kinji Fukasaku film?

[/quote]

If I recall correctly, his favorite fukasaku films are: the first films of the Fight without honor and humanity serie, Green Slime and Legend of the eight Samurai.

#7

a torn page from a spiral notebook, the one he’s using on IB’s set, now framed on your wall…


#8

you’ve got amazing psychic capabilities, my friend.

Btw, also made a little frontpage story for this now


#9

well i just asked myself the question “what would i do if i was him” and that was more or less it 8)


#10

i think For a Few Dollars More was on QT’s favourite list at one time… its actually probably my favourite western ( not the best western tho ) but I could be wrong about that


#11

No, I think it has always been The Good, the Bad & the Ugly.



You can see it with his list, he hasn’t changed his mind about his fav spaghetti westerns. Like all the Django trilogy , every movies he quoted as references for Kill Bill.



I’ve seen pretty much in the list. Just need to see Shoot the Living, Pray for the Dead and The Big Gundown. Haven’t seen much in the other runners movies, except for Companeros, Four of the Apocalypse, Arizona Colt and the Trinity movies.



It feels great to have a clear list and not just wrapped it up ourselves based on Tarantino’s interviews.



Great job, Seb !

Now if only we could get that for every other genre invented we’d be laughing, eh? 8)



There’s an assignment for Seb, if he’s willing to take it on.


#13

If Tarantino would mind making his top 20 for every other genres, that’d be great indeed, ahah.


#14

Return of Ringo and #16 through #20 are the only ones I haven’t seen.



Four/Apocalypse is perhaps the biggest “Love-it-or-hate-it” film in the genre, I’m glad to hear that he loves it.

Don’t you have a video camera?

pardon me if i’m stupid, 21, but every time i go to a movie theater to watch a western, 90pc of the audience are GUYS. older guys, actually. Having say that, i didn’t say i can’t possibly imagine a girl watching westerns, but, i hardly ever met a girl who’ve seen even 30 or 40 spaghetti westerns, and that’s what i was pleasantly surprised about…
