Didn't get a lot of challenge watching done this weekend between attending an Avett Brothers concert Saturday and taking my kid to Detective Pikachu yesterday.

71. The Duel (2016)
It's not bad but meanders a little too much. Makes me wonder my Woody Harrelson doesn't do many westerns. His style seems well suited to it.

Image
72. Preparati la bara! (1968) a.k.a. Django Prepare A Coffin
Man, this one seemed like a pretty blatant Django ripoff even compared to a lot of them. Terrence Hill seems a better fit with his Bud Spencer comedies.

SpoilerShow
01. The Sisters Brothers -- Audiard, 2018.
02. Dead West a.k.a. Cowboys vs. Vampires -- Myers, 2010.
03. Eyes of Fire -- Crounse, 1983.
04. White Comanche a.k.a. Comanche blanco a.k.a. Rio Hondo -- Briz Mendez, 1968.
Painful. William Shatner plays twin "half-breed" brothers. One lives as a virtuous white man who dresses and acts like Joe Schmoe ranch hand, while the other lives as a murderous, peyote-chomping, shirtless, war-paint-wearing Comanche. Many westerns from this period were tending to be more self-critical, scrutinizing their portrayals of Native Americans more closely, but not this one, brother! The whole thing was awful.

05. Northwest Rangers -- Newman, 1942.
Baaaaaaasically Manhattan Melodrama set amid the Canadian Pacific Northwest and the Mounties. Two boys (not brothers) are raised by a Mountie; one grows up to be an upright Mountie, while the other turns out to be a lawless gambler (he's even named Blackie, like Clark Gable in MM!). Despite being on opposite sides of the law, the two remain friends, until Blackie goes too far and the young Mountie has to make a tough decision... There's even a girl caught between the two, like Myrna Loy in MM. Nothing special, but certainly watchable.

06. Welcome to Blood City -- Sasdy, 1977.
Multilayered sci-fi western that goes into crazy (not good) territory in the last half, particularly the end. Jack Palance munch, munch, munches the scenery -- that part is kind of fun. Keir Dullea is pretty boring in the lead, and Samantha Eggar has a ridiculous role. Its premise was not a bad one, but the execution is not good.

07. The Pony Express -- Cruze, 1925.
Nice little silent western, more about California staying part of the Union and not seceding than it is seriously about the Pony Express, but it's still okay. Not a standout, but not bad.

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)
7. Winnetou - 2. Teil / Winnetou - Last of the Renegades (Harald Reinl, 1964)

This probably has the best cast of the series; in addition to regulars Pierre Brice in the title role and Lex Barker as Old Shatterhand, we have one of the great Euro-babes of the 60s, Kari n- a future Bond girl as Winnetou's love interest who must sacrifice that love for the sake of peace; Anthony Steel as chief behind-the-scenes bad guy, an oil baron trying to create a new war between the whites and Indians, and hoping to step in and grab as much black gold as he can; Terence Hill as the US Cavalry officer who falls for Dor; and best of all the inimitable Klaus Kinski as chief henchman to the bad guy. At this point I have to say the plots of these films are starting to feel pretty same-y, with Winnetou and Shatterhand always working tirelessly to keep the peace between one tribe and another, or between Indians generally and the whites, always with an evil capitalist working against them behind the scenes, and with the Indians that do wrong usually portrayed as just ignorant or misguided. So it's the gorgeous scenery and photography, the fun casts, the sweeping music by Martin Böttcher, and the action that is going to make them worth seeing, and all of that is pretty solid throughout the trilogy, at least. This has one of the better death scenes for a bad guy that I've seen lately, near the end, and there is in all of these films a plaintive note of tragedy - usually it's just one of the heroic characters that dies, but I think it's not a stretch to see the series on the whole as an elegy for not just the real west and the tragedy of the Native American but also for an old-fashioned romanticism in the cowboy genre that was being swept aside with shovels of spaghetti.

8. Winnetou - 3. Teil / Winnetou - The Last Shot / The Desperado Trail (Harald Reinl, 1965)

Third in the trilogy but seventh in the series of eleven films produced from '62-'68 and quite obviously not filmed in any kind of story-chronology sense (you'll know what I mean when you see the ending). This has a better, meatier role for Sam Hawkens (Ralf Wolter) than usual, and a really solid if not terribly original villain in Rollins (Rik Battaglia), who takes center stage throughout, with the behind-the-scenes capitalist rich bad guy taken care of fairly early on. It also has the most action of any of the series that I've seen yet, my guess is that they amped up the action quotient through the series run as the Italian westerns were getting more popular. Not too much else to say about this one at the moment, it's very much on a par with the previous entries, and even the more overtly sad ending just seems inevitable - and in a sense reversible, as myths never really die, and these are very much mythical characters at this point, as much as the Man With No Name.

I keep lagging behind in my updates and reviews. Here is a batch of 20, and the one coming tomorrow will be up-to-date with my progress. If I fall off trail once more, I'll disqualify myself. Real sloppy month for me. Perhaps it's the hotter weather which makes me extra lazy or just the bunch of crappy westerns which are not motivating me enough. Neither 1944 nor the selection of modern westerns have been very impressive this year.


Image

61. Big Kill (2018, Scott Martin) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- I guess Scott Martin wanted to star in a western, so he wrote, directed, produced and sprinkled affordable recognizable stars around himself to fulfill that dream. While you easily can find faults with Big Kill (2018), I didn't find it as annoying as I do other modern westerns. There was something casual about the mess they kept getting themselves in. Not going to revisit it, but the 2 hours went by easy enough.


Image

62. The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018, Ethan Coen & Joel Coen) - 6/10
--- The Coens almost doing mock westerns. A multi-stories, star-packed tribute to the old west. Starts off with short segments until the stories grow longer and longer, and unfortunately they grow less and less interesting. They should have kept that singing cowboy at the start there!


Image

63. Les frères Sisters [The Sisters Brothers] (2018, Jacques Audiard) - 5/10
--- The idea was good, but so damn unevenly paced! But I got to echo John C. Reilly's presence there. He was amazing in this!


Image

64. Damsel (2018, David Zellner & Nathan Zellner) - 3/10
--- Not my cup of tea. Not impossible that it could have worked with a few adjustments, but I found the situations more annoying than good.


Image

65. Any Bullet Will Do (2018, Justin Lee) - 3/10
--- Attempts cool western scenes, but there's a lot of nothing in between and it was not like the key scenes were all that great. Wasn't really clicking with me.


Image

66. The Unknown Ranger (1920, Aywon Film) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- The Unknown Ranger (1920) is a unknown western starring unknown cowboy called Rex Ray. And it felt like they were improvising their way through the scenes, so what the story was, was probable unknown to them too. Not terrible, but it's jut another random western from the silent days.


Image

67. Slow as Lightning (1923, Grover Jones) - 4/10
--- Don't know if "Western" is the right genre for Slow as Lightning (1923). It's basically a stock market drama which goes a little rural with motorcar stunts and barn jumping. But it is the leaping into hay which was the attraction here, so it can be justified.


Image

68. California in '49 (1924, Jacques Jaccard & Ben F. Wilson) - 3/10
--- This is a digested western of a 15-episode serial. Of course it was going to be too much for a 70-min feature. Too much text to explain what's happening, and too all over the place with the story in such a short time to have time to care. Looked alright, and I'm sure a longer, slower storytelling version would make it easier to like.


Image

69. Ridin' Wild (1925, Leon De La Mothe) - 2/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- A forgotten western which deserves to be forgotten. It's not poorly made, per se. But it's very anonymous, with very little personality or anything interesting going on. The star William Barrymore was not part of the famous Barrymore family, which explains why he had none of that charisma.


Image

70. Border Vengeance (1925, Harry S. Webb) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Jack Perrin was never a mesmerizing cowboy star, was he? Here in whats should be his prime, he's one of the least charismatic people in this standard silent western. Economic formula too. Had a decent fist fight for the climax, but otherwise nothing much to report.


Image

71. Hurricane Hal (1925, John P. McCarthy) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Very little standing out, which seems to be the theme of these leftover cowboy films I've found lately. Up until the golden age of westerns in the 1950s, the genre was considered mainly just filler stuff for the rural cinemas, and that's why most westerns not widely available and with big stars are pretty much bland productions. That basically means 95% or more of westerns from those days are forgettable piece of movie history. I've seen business reports blasting the simplicity of the genre dating back to the early 1910s, so most you're going to find from the silent age and early sound age are going to be stuff like this. I have a soft spot for it, but I don't it doesn't make them any more memorable than what they are. This one not so much.


Image

72. Ranson's Folly (1926, Sidney Olcott) - 4/10
--- Sidney Olcott directs Richard Barthelmess in a not so spectacular Cavalry western. But at least the production looked half-way professional, which is not something I've been spoiled with this month. It's watchable, not memorable. At least not for the Barthelmess performance. Felt the supporting cast were giving this a better effort than him.


Image

73. Guns of the Apocalypse (2018, Christopher R. Mihm) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Have a taste of the "post-apocalyptic-spaghetti-Midwestern" genre Christopher R. Mihm attempts with Guns of the Apocalypse (2018). Low budget, presented in black & white and all kinds of corny! While deliberately amateurish, it's not as unwatchable as it sounds. I found pleasure in it, though, mostly guilty ones.


Image

74. Bisbee '17 (2018, Robert Greene) - 4/10
--- A documentary of a inhumane deportation of 1,200 immigrant workers in the mining town Bisbee, near the Mexican border, in 1917. It informs us about the never-spoken-about incident, but it doesn't educate us about it. In a clumsy way it shows us ignorance is bliss and that the town lived happily ever after (or at least as long as the mining business was booming) by removing the striking trouble makers. Doubt that was the intention, but that was the result by ignoring the what happened to the people they sent out into the desert and taking a musical approach for a happier reenactment of the town's dark secret.


Image

75. Little Woods (2018, Nia DaCosta) - 3/10
--- In her feature debut Nia DaCosta shows she's typical of the modern mold of film makers, making even the cheapest thrills a God damn bore. The handy work is solid, and so is the acting. But this thing really needed something more interesting going on.


Image

76. Legal Action (2018, Brent Christy) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Plays like a random TV-court room drama. Nuff said...


Image

77. Texas Cotton (2018, Tyler Russell) - 4/10
--- I liked the old cop. Sort of like a more passive Will Rogers. That was enough for me to at least enjoy this, even if most of the supporting cast were horrible and the story was filled with holes. Might just be the number of crappy rural films I've seen lately lowering the bar....


Image

78. A Reckoning (2018, Justin Lee) - 2/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- The lead character was the attraction. Had it been done by an acclaimed actress and had an actual story attached to it, this might have been quite good. But as it was delivered... a bore.


Image

79. A Fistful of Lead (2018, Marc Price) - 2/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- The Brits make a western. Not their forte at all. Just never gets interesting or authentic.


Image

80. The Wind (2018, Emma Tammi) - 4/10
--- Nearly impossible to match it's inspiration, the silent classic of the same name from 1928, which was a intense film. The 2018 adaptation has it's moments, but doesn't really touch the same nerve with it's more vague storytelling. Nice try, though.

23. Quién sabe? [A Bullet for the General] (1966): 7.2 -The character of Chuncho, who's twisted between his own greed, revolutionary principles and loyalty to his gringo friend, lifts this movie up into an interesting entry in the genre. He's fabulous played by Volontè chewing up every scene.
24. Il mercenario [The Mercenary/A Professional Gun] (1968): 7.2 - Entertaining spaghetti-Western with an amazing score. Highlight of the movie is the duel between Musante and Palance in the bullring.

I think the term was originated by detractors of the King Vidor western “Duel in the Sun”. The Bartel movie is a goofy comedy that veers into similar territory.

Weird comedy that feels as if it was written as the filmmakers went along. The opening is confusing with Dean Martin singling out Charles Bronson as a 'bad guy' and himself and Frank Sinatra as 'good guys' before delving into such a fierce Martin/Sinatra rivalry that grouping the pair together makes no sense. The plot has something to do with establishing a riverboat casino and bank corruption, but it's mostly a mess. Victor Buono and Bronson (see above) both have their bright moments as the crooked bank manager and gunfighter here respectively, but Martin and Sinatra themselves seldom shine.

100! Got this challenge in the bag.
Not so fast, critter! This is going to be a rat race and the rat with the biggest cowboy hat is gonna win! :cowbow:

I was supposed to attach images to these titles, but flickr has been down for maintenance so it's not working properly, so I dropped it. At least I'm up-to-date and cruising in the challenge at this point, having finished 1944, all unwatched pre-1944 western I've found, along with all the modern westerns that's appeared the past couple of years. Since I've finished all my personal challenges for this months competition, I'll just continue with the 1945 westerns I have at my disposal and see how far that'll get me.



81. West of Hell (2018, Michael Steves) - 2/10
--- The old west, with the Devil on a train. Tries hard to be evil, but the idea doesn't click and becomes torture because of it.


82. In Searching (2018, J.L. Topkis) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Youth problems. Nothing particularly bad. Also nothing particularly interesting about it. Couldn't relate and found myself snoozing through most of it, unfortunately. Only thing "Westerns" had to do with it was some kind of parallel psychology of the story.


83. The Last Days of Billy the Kid (2017, Christopher Forbes) - 1/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Why?


84. From Hell to the Wild West (2017, Rene Perez) - 2/10
--- This devilish western has boobs, Charles Bronson (or a look-a-like considering he's dead) AND solves the mystery of Jack the Ripper! Yup, Jack the Ripper fled to America and the wild wild west to continue his horrible killing of prostitutes there. All these things tells me to give this a super high score, but I won't...


85. Five Fingers for Marseilles (2017, Michael Matthews) - 5/10
--- Western.... South African style! That makes it interesting, though the story moves too slow to ignite it's full potential. But I like the aesthetics here. A very different kind of western, yet it certainly feels legit in its own way. Would have loved more intensity and action, but at least it separates itself from the pack.


86. Sweet Country (2017, Warwick Thornton) - 6/10
--- Sweet Country (2017) is kinda slow, but it's well staged with pretty believable acting. Especially by the aborigines. That's why this feels like a heartfelt film. Even by it's downtime, it's a quality piece of work and a cool Australian western.


87. The Jade Pendant (2017, Po-Chih Leong) - 3/10
--- While I can appreciate a film tell about the lynching of Chinese immigrants during the gold rush era of the American west, I don't think it was a good idea to let the Chinese (or Hong Kong based creators) handle the story. Not because of the fear of them being biased, but because film making from that part of the world have the tendency to have more style than depth. And that's why The Jade Pendant (2017) becomes such a shallow experience. Definitely not catered to an audience of western origin.


88. Woman Walks Ahead (2017, Susanna White) - 4/10
--- Jessica Chastain is someone I've a high regard for, and that's probable why I felt a little let down by Woman Walks Ahead (2017). Having enjoyed quite a few of her films I expect so much, yet what we got was a very standard 'strong woman' role which didn't set itself apart or gained enough personality to enhance the important story. Still solid, just wasn't loving it.


89. The Rider (2017, Chloé Zhao) - 5/10
--- Horse rider gets a serious head injury and has to think about life. Not the most exciting of stories, but definitely very real. Respect.


90. Mohawk (2017, Ted Geoghegan) - 3/10
--- Didn't care for the story, but this did have WWE wrestler Luke Harper (aka Jon Huber) and wouldn't you know it, he was the most likable crazy man in this! Even cheap little indie films make better use of Luke Harper than WWE!


91. Happy Hunting (2017, Joe Dietsch & Louie Gibson) - 3/10
--- Started out alright, and once the hunting party started things were looking good... then it lost it's mark and became just another wasted opportunity of blood and gore. The actual end was a laugh.


92. Destry Rides Again (1932, Benjamin Stoloff) - 4/10
--- Tom Mix's Destry Rides Again (1932) is nothing like James Stewart's Destry Rides Again (1939). This one more or less licensing the name of the famous western novel to make "just another B-western" for Universal. There are some attempts at giving it some personality with close-ups of Mix's face, and simple things like that. Weird that such basic effects was largely ignored by poverty row directors. Anyway, this one's half-decent. Doesn't thread too far off the usual B-western trail, but at least it had a few quality actors and competent hands working behind the camera with the limited budget they clearly had.


93. Smoke Lightning (1933, David Howard) - 3/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- One of the many George O'Brien westerns where there is more focus on him flirting with the babes than the actual story or action. Very average cheap stuff, but at least some of it was likable. He'll charm you to death.


94. The Man from Dakota (1940, Leslie Fenton) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Wallace Beery doing his usual lovable old man with questionable morals character. This time at during the Civil War with John Howard & Dolores del Rio along for the adventure. Rather poor story, and honestly relied completely on Beery's personality.... because Howard has close to none, and Dolores was not on form for her part. At least Beery could do his routine in his sleep.


95. The Lone Rider Ambushed (1941, Sam Newfield) - 2/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- It's a Sam Newfield western, so bottom of the barrel production where the hero George Houston barely showed any personality. Does have Al St. John on comic support which gets your through portions of The Lone Rider Ambushed (1941), but it's still a stinker.


96. Stagecoach Buckaroo (1942, Ray Taylor) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- Solid B-western with Johnny Mack Brown. The addition of a tank-like stagecoach to fool the bandits was a interesting approach to a scenario done to death. That, and the tough guys in women's clothing was the highlight.


97. Along the Navajo Trail (I) (1945, Frank McDonald) - 3/10
--- Roy Rogers meets a stubborn blond and a gang of gypsies for a light-hearted entry in the Roy Rogers franchise. Not that much standing out as far as cowboy action goes, but it does have some fine George 'Gabby' Hayes moments and there is a nice little dance number in there.


98. Sunset in El Dorado (1945, Frank McDonald) - 4/10
--- This light-hearted Roy Rogers affair gets respect for teaming George 'Gabby' Hayes with Margaret Dumont of Duck Soup/Marx Brothers fame! Poor old gal always found the unreliable type on screen!


99. Enemy of the Law (1945, Harry L. Fraser) - 4/10
--- I enjoyed this The Texas Rangers entry. Tex Ritter did a few nice tunes, while Guy Wilkerson was a fun undercover sidekick to crooked Charles King. Most of the plot was done in good humor. Pretty much a feel good B-western for young and old. Production wise still nothing to write home about.


100. Lone Texas Ranger (1945, Spencer Gordon Bennet) - 4/10
--- "Red Ryder" Bill Elliott coming into town to help a well-reputable sheriff, only to find out he's crooked, unknown to the sheriffs son arriving too. Decent little story, which is not something I say often about these little B-westerns. Lacked proper action and the production values where there usual generic kind, but at least Lone Texas Ranger (1945) had some strong points.


101. Bells of Rosarita (1945, Frank McDonald) - 4/10
--- B-western going completely Hollywood! Roy Rogers getting together with other movie cowboys from the Republic Pictures lot for a weird quasi musical-western. More a curio with lots of musical numbers than a straight out adventure. Kind of like a old holiday TV-special of a television series.


102. Utah (1945, John English) - 4/10
--- Funny enough with the female ranch owner coming to town with her lady friends and George 'Gabby' Hayes being the most woman hating cowboy that ever lived. Roy Rogers came across almost as a bumbling fool the way he handled things here, but I guess that comes off as boyish charm for his lady fans.


103. Man from Oklahoma (1945, Frank McDonald) - 4/10
--- A family feud still going in 1945 and you got to love the old grumpiness going on between George 'Gabby' Hayes and Maude Eburne. Roy Rogers plays peacemaker, but his future wife Dale Evans gets easily fired up. A decent entry in the franchise.


104. Don't Fence Me In (1945, John English) - 5/10
--- Apparently George 'Gabby' Hayes was a bandit in his younger days. A presumed dead one. So when the word that "Wildcat Kelly" is still alive, trouble starts coming. A very enjoyable episode of the Roy Rogers franchise. One of the better.


105. Marshal of Laredo (1945, R.G. Springsteen) - 4/10 - FIRST CHECK!
--- A man is about to be hanged for a crime he did no commit, while his frail elderly mother comes to town for his wedding. The action was close to routine, but the motherly touch was a nice one.

Cast as a Native American under fake tan and wig, Burt Reynolds is hard to take seriously in this spaghetti western, but the film still spins a relatively engaging tale. The violence is refreshingly brutal with every kill and shot shown in incredible detail and stylistically the project looks and sounds great. Extreme low camera angles effectively appear while Ennio Morricone's semi-vocal music score full of heavy piano keys is highly atmospheric. The film could have benefited though from further fleshing out issues such as Reynolds grilling some townsfolk over what makes someone a true American.

78. The Last Sunset (1961)
Pretty solid. Better than I expected really.

WESTERN HORROR Double Feature
ImageImage
79. Black Noon (1971)
80. Eyes of Fire (1983)
Black Noon was mostly dry as a bone but had a decent ending reminiscent of The Wicker Man. Eyes of Fire on the other hand, while obviously constricted by its budget limitations still manages to create an eerie atmosphere with a pervasive sense of dread. It doesn't always work but it wasn't a waste of time either.

Image
81. Bill il taciturno (1967) a.k.a. Django Kills Silently
One of the weakest "Django" movies I've seen.

Image
82. Seyyit Han: Topragin Gelini (1968) a.k.a. Bride of the Earth
Is it weird that I think this is one of the best Turkish films I've seen?

Image
83. Heller in Pink Tights (1960)
This would've made a good double feature with Viva Maria.

1930's WESTERN VIGILANTE DOUBLE FEATURE
ImageImage
84. The Rawhide Terror (1934)
85. Tombstone Canyon (1932)
Both of these are tagged as horror but have more in common with comic book vigilantes like Batman and The Punisher, masked men seeking justice basically. Both are pretty creaky, poorly acted and thinly plotted. I don't really recommend either.

The basic story is no great shakes and January Jones is never more than adequate as a vengeful widow, though she has a couple of amusing moments involving the town's local pervert. Jason Isaacs and Ed Harris on the other hand are both absolutely electric here as a corrupt preacher (see above) and sheriff respectively. Praising the Lord during fornication and deluded enough to see himself as a divine messenger when murdering innocent men, Isaacs is a fascinating antagonist and his quirks are matched well by Harris with his amateur forensic investigations and constant intimidation tactics.
