Not a Western. It's Drama/War.

If Beguilded is a Western then Gone with the Wind is a Western
It's a remake of this movie, https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/the+beguiled/ , which is on the 100 Westerns list, so I'm willing to let it slide.

It's still just 5 people in a house. Then The Others is also a Western.

The thing is that this would be a double, and I'm really reluctant to make that pass. I've seen it myself this month nad I will not count it as either western or double

10. Blazing Saddles (1974) REVISION

Capped off with an amazing final ten minutes that not only breaks but completely shatters the fourth wall, Blazing Saddles ends on a very high note, but it is an uneven ride. The best moments come when both Cleavon Little and Harvey Korman are allowed to strut their stuff with the latter's constant indignation very funny, but we also have to endure some terrible jokes involving baked beans, a stupid governor and the list goes on. Mel Brooks does though manage to say a few things about racism and prejudices with his extreme fish-out-of-water tale - and this is enjoyable while it lasts.

I don't necessarily disagree BUT it's a direct remake of a film with the "western" IMDB tag and on the BFI Top 100 Westerns list.

And your poetry will now be written with blood.Show

1. Straniero... fatti il segno della croce! (Demofilo Fidani, 1968)
2. Ed ora... raccomanda l'anima a Dio! / Mardaneh bekosh / Stranger Say Your Prayers / etc, etc (Demofilo Fidani, 1968)
3. The Misfits (John Huston, 1961)
4. Silverado (Lawrence Kasdan, 1985) (re-watch)

Probably 3rd viewing, maybe 4th, first on BD - I never saw it in the cinema, watching in for the first time in the early 90s I think with my girlfriend at the time who loved it, on VHS (pan and scan? probably). She wasn't really a western aficionado so I've always unconsciously thought of it as "western for people who don't like westerns" but truth be told I've liked it more myself each time I've seen it, though I still cannot deny the many problems that I've seen with every viewing. It starts out pretty great, with solid if unremarkable introductions for our four main characters - brothers and sometime outlaws Scott Glenn and Kevin Costner, left-for-dead man-with-a-past Kevin Kline, and gunslinger and would-be-farmer Danny Glover, headed west to join his family. The first half of the film in which we meet these guys and the story gradually coalesces around them as a group, along with various other secondary characters including John Cleese as the no-nonsense sheriff in a town along the way to the eponymous place where they're all headed, and Brian Dennehy as an ebullient but violent man with a connection to Kline, is pretty great stuff, but eventually we have too many characters and too many little subplots that end up getting short shrift in the second half. Why the hell is Rosanna Arquette here for example? She's got three VERY brief scenes scattered through the film, and it seems clear to me that she was supposed to be a character of some significance, but most of her part must have gotten left on the editing floor. The film as a whole feels frustratingly incomplete, a would-be epic shoehorned into an extended shoot-em-up ending that really doesn't satisfy as drama even if the action is pretty decent.

BUT...the amazing cast and Kasdan's fine direction of them: Costner in particular who I've never been that partial to but who has a lot of energy in this role, and I should also mention Linda Hunt as the bar owner in Silverado who Kline goes to work for...the wonderful score by Bruce Broughton...the landscape photography in the early parts in particular...all of it does add up in the end to a worthwhile experience, despite all my caveats. I swear I've seen comments, maybe by Kasdan, that there was a longer version out there that might see the light of day sometime, or maybe it's just my imagination - can't find it now. Maybe I should watch the BD extras.

1. Billy the Kid Versus Dracula (1966) 5/10

Not nearly as bad as it's IMDb rating and reputation suggest.

Edit: it pops up a western in a few places, but apparently IMDb has stripped it of that genre so if it doesn't count then ignore me...
IMDb has it as a western in the fine print. They only highlight the first two genres of any film near the top of the page, but if you scroll below the cast and crew you can see all the genres listed and this one is listed is Action / Drama / horror / Western. They list the genres alphabetically so western is often not noted at the top of the page.

I love Carradine's top hat and the bat in this.

I've been in the WestShow
1. Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973)
2. The Wind (1928)
TIL Sjostrom moved to America... pretty cool early Western, and I loved how the titular wind played out in the film and how that was thematic throughout the picture. The story felt odd to me, but I appreciated this quite a bit.

Since I live in the Western US, where the Western "originated", by that logic 60 minutes of me being awake should count for a point in this challenge, right? :tongue:

Thanks for hosting, shugs. Let's see if I can be a more honourable cowboy this time around and not shoot PUNQ or anyone else in the back.

TCM UK are showing westerns all the time these days and their afternoon matinée is often a western. I also have access to Film4, Movies4Men (showing plenty of Spaghetti and Euro westerns), Retro Movies, Talking Pictures TV, and Irish-language channel TG4 with their Friday evening westerns. I should be well stocked for the month of May!

1. 'Destry Rides Again' / 1939, George Marshall / 10/10
2. 'Gunfighters' / 1947, George Waggner / 8/10
3. 'Coroner Creek' / 1948, Ray Enright / 8.5 or 9/10
4. 'Stranger on Horseback' / 1955, Jacques Tourneur / 8/10
5. 'The Tall Stranger' / 1957, Thomas Carr / 7/10
6. 'Oklahoma Territory' / 1960, Edward L. Cahn / 7/10
7. 'Gun Fight' / 1961, Edward L. Cahn / 5/10
8. ''Doc'' / 1971, Frank Perry / 8/10
9. 'Cowboys & Aliens' / 2011, Jon Favreau / 6/10

That's all, folks!

11. Way Out West (1937) REVISION

Image

An initial disappointment as one of the first Laurel and Hardy feature films that I ever saw, Way Out West really impressed me this time round having seen more than ten other features from the comic duo in the time since. The film benefits from a more solid and less skit-like plot that the average L+H feature - though there are still superfluous sequences that run too long. James Finlayson is great as the chief antagonist, the dialogue is often witty and the hat eating is great. This certainly isn't the duo's finest film like some out there quizzically contend, but it is probably among their five or six best.

Yeah, I agree... Palance and the general idea (which I felt could have been executed way better) were the best parts of the film. Dullea was pretty good in his role too. :)

6. The Beguiled (2017) - Sofia Coppola 6/10
Not a Western. It's Drama/War.

If Beguilded is a Western then Gone with the Wind is a Western
I don't necessarily disagree BUT it's a direct remake of a film with the "western" IMDB tag and on the BFI Top 100 Westerns list.
A direct remake uses the same screenplay. Psycho 98 is a direct remake.

This screenplay is written by Sofia Coppola based on the novel and the previous screenplay. (That movie doesn't have the Western tag on imdb either, by the way)

And thank the lord that cinema has evolved since 1971. She focuses on the school and just the school. Just to show how the strange man interfers with their daily life. This is just a house in the woods and could easily be a thriller set a different time and a different place. (There exists quite a few home invasion movies, so maybe they already have)

So it's quite irrelevant what genre BFI give the older film. This is 100 very different minutes.

6. The Beguiled (2017) - Sofia Coppola 6/10
Not a Western. It's Drama/War.

If Beguilded is a Western then Gone with the Wind is a Western
You are welcome to your opinion.

I've been in the WestShow
1. Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973)
2. The Wind (1928)
3. Companeros (1970)
A decent spaghetti western with some nice visuals, and the first time I've heard some anti-Swedish racism.

Well, y'all got me... :whistling:

I just find it funny (in a sad way). I'm so used to American racism that different brands of racism are fascinating to me. I had an ex who was Chinese, so I got to learn a bit about intra-Asian racism. And apparently intra-Scandinavian racism is a thing? So much racism, yet so little energy to hate groups of people... I'd rather just hate on specific individuals. :P

Nah, we have nicknames for each others, but there is no hate.



There has been a while since we had songs like this. (It is based on that swedes usually like very much danseband music (hard to define, swedish country? easy to dance swing to), but this was before Robyn and Roxette)
