ooo Revenge forum would be gd, so many classic movies fit in this genre.


#86

i think the revenge “genre” is too broad to encompass it in a websites. besides, i am overstreteched already and i still need to finish that Rodriguez site

Speaking personally in regards to Leone being introduced by QT. I grew up going to the movies and watching alot of movies on TV and VHS in the 80s. I saw The GBU and Once Upon In The West and Once Upon A Time in America (in the theater in 1984) long before I even knew who QT was. Those films were really mainstream to me, they werent any different than seeing other American Westerns on TV. As a kid, I always knew Leone as the guy who made those crazy Westerns with Clint Eastwood. The same with The Trinity movies. They were pretty standard Saturday afternoon-night movie watching for me back then.



To me, when QT came along he was like a new friend who happened to know way more about movies than me, saying “If you liked that, check THIS one out”. Hes still really very much like a video store clerk even today. He’s just able to make films himself now and he has a bigger impact on people. Its one of his best traits as an celebrity too.

#91

Just rewatched Vol 1 last ngiht and paid attention to the framing, it’s def Leone inspired.


#93

Don’t do it man, you’ll be sorry!

I’m not the best person to argue this point, but I think it’s his composition and his full use of widescreen. I was gonna post some screen caps, but it’s near impossible to find full widescreen ones. Here are some anyway that kind of show what I’m getting at.

I’m not arguing it’s the only influence or anything, nor was I attempting to start some argument or even a discussion, merely bringing up something I noticed.

These are a bunch of awesome pics.


#96

Haha, dude, take it easy. Don’t let Boner Daddy scare you.

I kind of see where you’re coming from but I’m going to need more examples (not even with screen shots). I’m very intrigued (in a good way).
