    A List Full of Spaghetti Westerns

    Favs/dislikes: 11:0. Spaghetti Western is a broad sub-genre of Western films that emerged in the mid-1960s in the wake of Sergio Leone's film-making style and international box-office success. The term was used by critics in USA and other countries because most of these Westerns were produced and directed by Italians. It was Sergio Leone who defined the look and attitude of the genre with his first western and the two that soon were to follow:For a Few Dollars more (1965) and The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966). Together these films are called ‘The Dollars Trilogy’. Leone’s West was a dusty wasteland of whitewashed villages, howling winds, scraggy dogs and cynical heroes, as unshaven as the villains. All three films were scored by Ennio Morricone, and his music was as unusual as Leone’s visuals: not only did he use instruments like the trumpet, the harp or the electric guitar, he also added whistle, cracking whips and gunshots to the concoction, described by a critic as a ‘rattlesnake in a drumkit’. Morricone went on to score over 30 Italian westerns and was a key factor in the genre's success. In general spaghetti westerns are more action oriented than their American counterparts. Dialogue is sparse and some critics have pointed out that they are constructed as operas, using the music as an illustrative ingredient of the narrative. For the time of making many spaghetti westerns were quite violent, and several of them met with censorship problems, causing them to be cut or even banned in certain markets. Many spaghetti westerns have an American-Mexican border setting and feature loud and sadistic Mexican bandits. The Civil War and its aftermath is a recurrent background. Instead of regular names the heroes often have bizarre names like Ringo, Sartana, Sabata, Johnny Oro, Arizona Colt or Django. The genre is unmistakably a catholic genre (some other names in use are Hallelujah, Cemetery, Trinity or Holy Water Joe!), with a visual style strongly influenced by the catholic iconography of, for instance, the crucifixion, the last supper or the ecce homo. The surreal extravanganza Django Kill! (Se sei vivo, spara, 1967), by Giulio Questi, former assistant of Fellini (!) has a resurrected hero who witnesses a reflection of Judgment Day in a dusty western town.

  5. The 250 Best Drama Movies of All Time's icon

    The 250 Best Drama Movies of All Time

    Favs/dislikes: 4:0. A list mainly of movies whose central focus is drama, though some movies here have elements of suspense or humor as well, such as thrillers, action movies and comedy-dramas. To give prominence to a diverse variety of styles and more room to a greater number of directors, only one movie per series will appear here. The installment selected is the one I hold the highest, representing the series as a whole. So you'll only find one Godfather movie here, for example. The choice of which I rank highest changes with time. Also, there are many lauded films I've yet to see and new releases mean new entries, so the list will be revised regularly. The list will however consistently reveal my fondness for adventure movies and film noir. It's also telling that non-English speaking movies are excluded, reflecting the important role English-language movies have played in film history. Out of the acclaimed non-English speaking movies I've seen, I'd place many near the top, but to add them and leave out classics I haven't seen would be to make an incomplete list. As it is, this list focuses on the movies in English that struck a chord with me. Feel free to recommend new titles!

    Paste's 100 Greatest War Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 3:0. War. What is it good for? Well, if nothing else, then a tidy template for cinema: conflict, clear protagonists and antagonists, heightened emotions, and a generally unpredictable, lawless atmosphere which—as per the western—has since the dawn of cinema offered an elastic dramatic environment in which filmmakers can explore men at both their best and worst. And make no mistake, the war movie is almost always about men. It’s the most masculine of genres, the fact that armies have throughout history often been almost exclusively male seeing to it that men almost always dominate these things. It’s a genre that emphasizes action and existential angst. It’s also a malleable genre, and one that could broadly include all manner of films that we ultimately ruled out of the running in this list. With this top 100, we’ve made the decision to include only movies whose wars are based on historical conflicts, so none of the likes of Edge of Tomorrow or Starship Troopers. We’ve picked films that deal with soldiers, soldiering and warfare directly, meaning wartime movies set primarily away from conflict, often told largely or exclusively from the civilian perspective—a category which includes such classics as The Cranes Are Flying and Hope & Glory, Grave of the Fireflies and Forbidden Games—didn’t make the cut. Post-war dramas, like Ashes and Diamonds and Germany, Year Zero, as well as films that go to war for only a fraction of the running time, such as From Here to Eternity and Born on the Fourth of July, were also excluded. Some tough choices were made on what actually constituted a “war movie.” Resistance dramas feature in this list, but Casablanca doesn’t appear. Likewise Robert Bresson’s A Man Escaped and Sidney Lumet’s The Hill. It was decided ultimately that the war was too much a peripheral element in these films. On the other hand, while both western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and biopic The Imitation Game feature war prominently, they, like Casablanca (a romance with noir and thriller elements) plus A Man Escaped and The Hill (both prison movies), belong more obviously to other genres. We’ve also decided not to include movies which focus on the Holocaust here; those are set to appear in another feature entirely. Regarding the films that do feature here: our 100 hail from all over the world. These films were released as recently as last year and as far back as 1930. They range from comical to harrowing, action-packed to quietly introspective, proudly gung-ho to deeply anti-war. They are a diverse set of movies; they are also worthy of being called the 100 greatest war movies ever made. Published May 2017

  19. Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema's icon

    Funky Bollywood: The Wild World of 1970s Indian Action Cinema

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. "Despite the often stereotypical notions of Bollywood, it’s not all weddings, wet saris and running around trees. In the 1970s, Indian cinema gave birth to a new breed of action movie, one that combined its own exuberant traditions with foreign influences like the gritty urban crime thrillers of the New Hollywood, Hong Kong martial arts cinema, and Italian exploitation fare. This was the domain of hard fighting he-men stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Dharmendra and Feroz Khan and badass, whip-wielding heroines played by the likes of the gorgeous Zeenat Aman, Hema Malini, and Rekha. Let world cult cinema fanatic Todd Stadtman be your guide through this world of karate killers, femme fatales, space age lairs, bombshells and booby traps with Funky Bollywood, a book with an attitude as freewheeling and feisty as its subject matter, bursting with colour and imagination on every vibrant page."

    Highest Body Count Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 16:0. Top list from www.moviebodycounts.com. The most unnecessary list, sure, but did you know that the film Commando (1985) only has a body count of 88? And with that it doesn't even make this list. This is the top 1-62 list of films with a body count - on screen kills/deaths - of one hundred or more. Quote: "The "body counts" for this site are mostly "on screen kills/deaths" or fatal/critical/mortal shots/hits of human, humanoid, or creatures (ie monsters, aliens, zombies.)"

  21. A Guide to Pinky Violence's icon

    A Guide to Pinky Violence

    Favs/dislikes: 24:0. "Pinky Violence" refers to a genre of Japanese action cinema which began in the late 1960's and continued through the mid 1970's. Typically featuring a young female protagonist, these films often told stories of revenge or gangland violence. Despite the word "pinky", these films were not usually softcore (although a couple of titles toe the line). While certainly characterized by considerable nudity as a means of luring in a waning cinema audience, sex scenes were limited, typically in furtherance of the plot, and extremely mild in comparison to the "Roman Porno" line being produced at Nikkatsu. Instead, the focus is on wild, outrageous action, colorful direction and a spirit of youthful energy. The genre primarily refers to a line of films released by Toei (one of Japan's major studios), however two series from rival series mirror the sensibilities enough that they are often included: Toho's "Rica" series, and Nikkatsu's "Stray Cat Rock" films. This list is based on the list suggested by KamuiX in his article "The World of Pinky Violence, An Intro." It is grouped by series, rather than chronology, with stand-alone films appearing at the bottom of the list. IMDB's coverage of Japanese films is not always great. The following films should be on this list, but lack an imdb entry: Zubekô banchô: Tôkyô nagaremono (AKA Delinquent Girl Boss 2) Terrifying Girls' High School 4: Animal Courage All three films in "Joshi Gakuen" series Bankaku Rock Hell's Angels: Crimson Roar
