03. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, Joel & Ethan Coen (2018) 8/10

I enjoyed both the form and the story, typical of the brother's approach on storytelling. I even wonder whether the Liam Neeson part was or not an explanation of sorts of their choice to go to Netflix.

04. Terror in a Texas Town, by Lewis Milestone (1958) 7,5/10

Great B-Movie !! Sterling Hayden as a swedish whaler having to fight a gunfighter with a harpoon !!! What's not to enjoy ?

01. Open Range, by Kevin Costner (2003) 8/10

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)
5. Pale Rider (Clint Eastwood, 1985) (re-watch)
6. Winnetou - 1. Teil / Apache Gold (Harald Reinl, 1963)

Despite being the "first part" according to the title, this is actually the second Winnetou/Old Shatterhand film, after Der Schatz im Silbersee the previous year which also starred French actor Pierre Brice as the noble Apache chief and Lex Barker as Shatterhand - Barker was in most of the films in the series of 11 made between 1962 and 1968, with Brice in all of them. They make a good team - a much more equal one than the Lone Ranger and Tonto for example. And this is going to be a fun series if the first two (I watched the previous one a year ago) are any indication; a bit more violent than most American westerns up to this point, but in most ways more reminiscent of those than of the burgeoning Italian genre, with more readily definable heroes and villains (the first scene with the bad guy here shows him shooting buffalo just for fun and laughing with glee) and a "cleanness" to both the bright,almost oversaturated Eastmancolor photography and the colorful and usually spotless costumes. This second film tells us how Winnetou and Shatterhand first meet, as the latter is trying to correct an apparent mistake that will send a new railroad through Apache land - he was the surveyor on the project originally so he knows it's not being placed right - but finding out that it was no mistake but the work of a dastardly villain, Santer (Mario Adorf), who will have to be defeated of course. One good bar fight early on; lots and lots of shooting and dynamiting in the second half; mediocre comic interludes and overall not quite as engaging as Silbersee, but just beautiful to look at and I love the Winnetou theme by composer Martin Böttcher (who died just a couple of weeks ago at 91). I have the BD sets of the Karl May films which have English and German audio options, and I watched this in English, but as often happens with Euro-westerns, the American cut was shorter - 91 minutes vs 104 (not 101 as IMDb sez) so there are chunks where the German audio takes over as those parts, like all the scenes with the silly English photographer comic relief, were never dubbed into English in the first place. I think Barker is dubbing himself in the English version but not the German (he spoke German but not fluently enough).

6. Rio Conchos
There's not much of interest here in this postbellum Western set mostly in Mexico that features a familiar rapprochement of union and confederate soldiers. For those so inclined, Jim Brown makes his movie debut but isn't given much to do. Instead, Richard Boone, with his weary face and rasping timbre, dominates the movie (as he has every movies I've seen him in).

7. Rancho Notorious
A slight Western built upon a threadbare narrative that is ennobled by the quality of its cast and devalued by the ridiculous score that provides narration throughout the movie.

8-38. Deadwood (seasons 1-3), 1897 minutes = 31 points

For most of seasons 2 and 3, once I sort of had a fix on what this show was about, I thought that it succeeded very well as a comedy and not so much as a drama. The comedy is obvious. Beyond absurd situations and characters, the show is graced by looping, complex dialogue that billows in great insults and witty dialogue.

While the characters are consistently interesting, I found the dramatic narrative less compelling. For most of the series, I felt the show's creators were trying to have it both ways. The shows insists on the amorality and lawlessness of Deadwood. The show repeatedly reveals that even the ostensibly positive characters are brutal and morally compromised. And yet, the show still clearly has us rooting for certain sides. It treats certain death as grave tragedies and others as larks for comedic value. When a band of thugs go on a murderous rampage through Deadwood's Chinatown, slitting the throats of several defenseless Chinese, the event is treated like a lighthearted outing.

And then ... I changed my mind. Because of the slow burn of the third season, and especially the series' conclusion, I now feel like the show moved past such dramatic problems and produced a satisfying message. I won't say more because it would require a more in-depth explanation of the ending. I only conclude that Deadwood is a magnificent achievement, a brilliant evocation and revision of the "town Western," a central structural element in the mythology of the Western (for more, see Will Wright's structuralist analysis of Westerns, "Sixguns and Society"). I am naturally averse to television series. It takes a lot for me to like a TV show, and a lot more for me to finish a TV show. Deadwood is only the fifth series I've seen in its entirety. I look forward to the capstone movie sequel, which arrives in a few weeks.

That review of Deadwood really helps me - it's been something I've been thinking of seeing myself, but I also watch very little TV - and have only watched a handful of multi-season shows in their entirety myself. I think I'm actually kind of afraid of getting sucked in, as I find it easier to veg out and rewatch Buffy or Frasier than to watch new things - I don't need any more time-wasters I guess. But shit, who am I fooling? Anyway, putting this on a higher priority now though I'm sure I won't get to it this months.

2. Ten Who Dared (1960)

Disney live-action film about geologist John Wesley Powell's expedition of Colorado River through the Grand Canyon. Not your typical Western (there are a few Native Americans). I found this on Hoopla and wanted to see it for
personal reasons.Show
My great-great uncle, G.K. Gilbert, was Powell's assistant in 1970s survey of the Rockies and later became a prominent geomorphologist in his own right, was senior geologist for the USGS for 40 years. He has craters on the moon and Mars named after him, which is more than Powell can say.

05. Se sei vivo spara, by Giulio Questi (1967) 5/10

A very mixed up movie, with a confused narration and poorly defined characters... The director shows an unusual interest for the macabre and the unusual, which makes it kind of interesting at times...

Sorry; haven't checked in here in a while, but thanks again for the stats - and the reminder that it's up to me to watch westerns from as many different countries as possible to inflate your statistics. tehe

So what was I doing in this time? I've been offline for two days due to sickness and work pressure, but I have used my time effectively so that I can present at the same time the following four viewings that simply had to be grouped together:

Once Upon a Time in the WestShow
1. Pale Rider (1985)
2. The Sun Shines Bright (1953)
3. The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (2005)
4. A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014)
5. The Shakiest Gun in the West (1968)
6. The Ridiculous 6 (2015)
7. The Proposition (2005)
8. The Long Riders (1980)
9. The Homesman (2014)
10. Blazing Saddles (1974) REVISION
11. Way Out West (1937) REVISION
12. Evil Roy Slade (1972)
13. The Burrowers (2008)
14. The Ugly Ones (1966)
15. The Toll Gate (1920)

Four Rios including a John Wayne Trio

16. Rio Conchos (1964)

Image

The first two thirds here are an up and down ride with definite lulls in between highlights like a laughing Mexican bandit. The final third becomes incredibly interesting though once Edmond O'Brien enters the picture in a deliciously larger-than-life performance, waxing poetic about megalomaniacal plans while strutting about a mansion of sorts and devising all sorts of creative torture methods; the comparison to a Bond villain is inescapable.

17. Rio Grande (1950)

Image

This western gets off to a decent start, exploring the rift between the protagonist and his estranged son: a new recruit stationed with him by chance. The family drama aspect is soon pushed into the background though and with the second half of the film entirely dedicated to warding off the 'evil' and 'barbaric' Apaches, the film gradually grows less compelling. Some of the horseback fights are at least reasonably well done though.

18. Rio Bravo (1959)

Image

The best film that I have seen all year: intense right from the dialogue-free first four minutes with a constant sense of danger and unease in the air; several moments (assassin the rafters; ducking to get keys) are simply breathtaking too. What really elevates Rio Bravo above the average John Wayne western though is how genuinely funny it also is as Hawks channels in his iconic screwball comedies with great banter between Wayne and Dickinson.

19. Rio Lobo (1970)

Image

Easy enough to confuse with Rio Bravo due not only to the title but a similar final 20 minutes that are less intense this time round. As for the rest of the film, it is an up and down ride. The movie opens with an exciting and well filmed gold heist, but once it is over, it is nearly 40 minutes in before the plot refocuses with the sudden introduction of Jennifer O'Neill. A dentist is very funny though and Jerry Goldsmith's unusual (for a western) score rocks.
