A pair of Spaghetti Westerns led off the viewing, both of which were released back in December to capitalize on Django Unchained. These have about as much to do with the original Django as Tarantino's movie does.
KILLS SILENTLY is best described as "serviceable". There is really
nothing special going on here and George Eastman as the title character
doesn't come off as any sort of real legendary western hero. Even during
the climax when it finally seems like the Django character in this
flick is going to have a special moment he is quickly put into a
compromising situation and has to rely on others. But like I said, it
isn't all bad, it just isn't exceptionally good. There are many of the
classic spaghetti western cliches which keep it entertaining enough even
if it becomes a checklist of cliches.
there is DJANGO'S CUT PRICE CORPSES and this is a prime example of a
cool title with a movie that doesn't live up to it. A rather lame and
tame western that would maybe be okay at the end of a SW triple bill
after you've seen a couple good ones and already have your western
appetite satisfied. While neither of these movies are particularly bad
and it wouldn't be fair to say they're not worth checking out but there
are hundreds of other Spaghetti Westerns worth checking out before you
get to these. The price (around $5 or $6 for a nicely presented DVD) is
I planned to watch more but it didn't happen... until tomorrow dear readers.
