    I'm usually not a fan of westerns but these reviews definitely piqued my interest. Certainly one of the most in-depth reviews I've ever read. Excellent job.

    I keep picking this up. The only film out of the lot I've seen is Django, and quite frankly if the others stack up as well as you say, then a purchase of this is a certainty.

    If you liked "Django" check out another film by the same producer called "Keoma"starring Franco Nero.

    It's an Anchor Bay release

    good reviewing andy :) i read these reviews when you posted them and got django at your suggestion and it was a good watch. moved along nice and quick (those eastwood spaghetties tend to drag in parts) the characters were good and it had cool prostitutes.

    one gripe:

    in the final scene, django guns down all six men using his six shooter but he fires 7 shots in a row. silly nit pick to some, but i think that sort of thing is relevant in movies set in the old west.

    i'm gonna watch that run man run next i think.

    Django is a great film! I just watched Companeros again today. That is damn fun stuff!! Morricone's score is so damn catchy. :) Still waiting on The Great Silence. Will order Day of Anger next me thinks. :)

    Agreed, this is a great boxset. In addition to Django, CompaƱeros, and any of Leone's westerns (of course), I highly recommend Castellari's Keoma, which might be my favourite spaghetti western.

    Cool! Everyone I've shown this DVD says the same thing, great movie but that soundtrack is grating, but I couldn't disagree more. It fits the movie perfectly. Imagine Lena Horne and Leonard Cohen as two angry drunks on an all-day bender drinking whiskey, then going into the studio to record for this movie... That's the Keoma soundtrack! (Well, not Lena Horne and Leonard Cohen, but it sure sounds like them.) Good score, Jimbo!

    Ya... for Keoma I thought the same kinda thing... Leonard Cohen on a bitch of a drunk and doing the score for this. Haha! Keoma is a great film too. Really well done and the mood is thick all the way through. :)

    And since this is HorrorDVDs.com, let's not forget to mention the Zombie connection: Olga "patented Fulci eyeball gag" Karlatos stars in Keoma.
