The Shoutbox
Did you watch Duck, You Sucker, L.B.? Whadidjya think about those great, grand, glorious heroes of the Revolution?
I just thought I'd do it here.
One of the worst shots in a film is the bullet POV in La Femme Nikita.
S.B. why not address that question in the Tarantino/Ritchie thread? Remember those things above the shoutbox, the f-o-r-u-m-s? That's what they're there for, Tex.
and Duck You Sucker
I thought it was good but not great just when that back head shot of Burt's does the 360 degree turn plus there were other touchs of his style in there too as well I wouldn't consider it to be in the same league as Once uopn a time in the west or the good the bad and the ugly,a fistful of dollars and for a few dolloars more but I still enjoyed it.
Now, Hold's Pulp Fiction.
Didn't really do it for you?
I wouldn't come close to ranking Vera Cruz among the best Westerns. It's OK. Maybe it's due partly to my never caring for Gary Cooper? But High Noon is a great movie even with him in it, so that can't be it.

"Big Jim was a schmendrake. He was a no-good leader. The man was tight, he don't part with a dime. And besides, he was a slob. And on top of everything else, he wasn't even an American citizen."
Uh huh.
I also watch Vera Cruz with Burt Lanchster directed by Aldrich anyone sen that one as well, very cool movie with some creative cinematography by Ernast laszlo it kind of feels like Sergio leone took a bit here and there from it also
