5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of spag westerns, 6 Aug 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cult Spaghetti Westerns Box Set - DJANGO, A BULLET FOR THE GENERAL, KEOMA [DVD] (DVD)
Great collection of spag westerns, the star of the bunch is bullet for the general followed by Keoma. I personally think Django is overrated but still OK. The UK editions of this movies blow the crap away out of the NTSC versions.

Keoma is cut by the BBFC and Django in English is a big nono.
So you're happy with this set? Good for you, but I just stick to my US releases.

Keoma was indeed cut .. but only by 4 secs by bbfc because of UK legal requirements: "Cut required for animal cruelty i.e. sight of horse falling after being tripped. Cut made in accordance with BBFC policy on animal cruelty on video and the Cinematograph Films (Animals) Act 1937"
This is nonetheless the longest UK video release ever. And to quote Total DVD: "a wonderful anamorphic widescreen presentation that is a GLORY TO BEHOLD"

All three Argent westerns in this box-set each have tremendous extras (which themselves received rave reviews, that is not something you see every day!): interviews with: Franco Nero; Enzo Castellari ("an exceptionally good interview" DVD Times); Damiano Damiani (BULLET): "a robust interview with (director) Damiani" Sight & Sound ; plus an in-depth presentation of each film by acclaimed filmmaker Alex Cox (Repo Man, Sid and Nancy) in the style of his epoch-making Moviedrome BBC series..

If you like westerns this really is a must have ..

by the way:Django was not shot with sync sound: the Italian version was made in post-production studio, after the film was edited, for the Italian market only: it's therefore no more the original version than the English one..

You have made a very wise buy Terence Tan Co "tetsuo79" ! Others can stick to their US release if they must.. but ... as we all know: Other things being equal - ie from same 35 mm source - PAL based DVDs will always look better than NTSC (aka Never Twice the Same Color !) versions.. Not just a random personal opinion: see this quote for Argen'ts BULLET FOR THE GENERAL from Total DVD: "we doubt it's ever looked better"..

I'm guessing that the English version of Django is dubbed with the original actors dubbing their own voices? If so, I see no problem with it; no different to the Dollars Trilogy.
