Movie Review – Once Upon a Time in Deadwood (2019)

Once Upon a Time in Deadwood, 2019.

Directed by Rene Perez.

Starring Robert Bronzi, Michael Pare, Karin Brauns and Lauren Compton.

Synopsis:

A notorious gunslinger is slipped a slow-acting poison by an heiress and told he has three days to track down and rescue her sister, who has been kidnapped by a gang of hoodlums and holds the antidote.

The grim reaper is a cruel beast. Eventually he’ll catch up to us all. Whether you’re Joe Bloggs on the street, going about your daily grind, or whether you’re a Hollywood icon. We’ve now reached a point where the big budget blockbusters can resurrect long dead actors. Peter Cushing was brought back from beyond to appear in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (albeit feeling decidedly creepy) but prior to pioneering CGI, the best hope was a lookalike. Bruce Lee has been treated to countless ‘doubles’ trying to

I Can't Tell If This Trailer For The Western Once Upon A Time In Deadwood is Meant To Be Funny or Serious

I’ve got a trailer to share with you today for an upcoming western called Once Upon a Time in Deadwood, and I can’t tell if its supposed to be funny or serious. I think it’s serious, and the fact that it’s serious makes it even more funny.

The story follows “a notorious gunslinger who is slipped a slow-acting poison by an heiress and told he has three days to track down and rescue her sister, who has been kidnapped by a band of hoodlums and holds the antidote.”

The gunslinger is played by Charles Bronson look-a-like actor Robert Bronzi (Death Kiss) and it also stars Michael Pare (Streets of Fire), who is the villain. Rene Perez directs from his screenplay, and the movie was filmed in California as well as in Western Leone, near Almeria, Spain, site of much of the filming of the famous Sergio Leone

Once Upon a Time in Deadwood Trailer: Charles Bronson Lookalike Goes Wild in the Old West
A riff on Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starring the world's premiere Charles Bronson impersonator has arrived in the form of Once Upon a Time in Deadwood, which also plays off of HBO's hit series and Charles Bronson's own Once Upon a Time in the West for a trifecta of tomfoolery. Today, we have a trailer and poster for this revenge Western staring Robert Bronzi, which looks like an action-packed Fugazi, sun bleached and faded to perfection.

The new artwork and a trailer have been released for Once Upon a Time in Deadwood, the new revenge western feature starring Robert Bronzi (recent hit Death Kiss) and Michael Pare (Streets of Fire) that comes out October 1st in the U.S. The story concerns a notorious gunslinger who is slipped a slow-acting poison by an heiress and told he has three days to track down and rescue her sister,

The Bird With the Crystal Plumage

Dario Argento’s acclaimed directorial debut emerged from a successful writing career that encompassed everything from movie criticism to contributions to westerns like Five Man Army and Once Upon a Time in the West. He enlisted his father, producer Salvatore Argento, to help fund what would become a landmark in the Italian giallo genre, whose origins many link to Mario Bava’s The Girl Who Knew Too Much (Evil Eye in its alternate Us version). Although there are also echoes of Bava’s Blood and Black Lace, much of the plot is inspired by Fredric Brown’s novel The Screaming Mimi (filmed by Gerd Oswald in 1958). Coproduced with Germany’s Ccc Films which expected an Edgar Wallace-style thriller and was put off by the level of violence. Ennio Morricone’s score is disturbingly sexy.

Inglourious Basterds and the Immortality of Revenge Cinema

David Crow Aug 22, 2019

We examine the wrathful movie magic of Inglourious Basterds' ending, and why Quentin Tarantino and Shosanna went there.

Some audiences were baffled in 2009 when the fifth chapter of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds began. Whereas other sections of the film were either cordoned off under titles like “Once Upon a Time… in Nazi Occupied France” or the name of the movie itself, what could the whimsical “Revenge of the Giant Face” possibly signify? The meaning became self-evident by the time Shosanna’s (Mélanie Laurent) visage cackled with delight from a burning movie screen, and the High Command of the Third Reich was beckoned into Hell. In a dazzling rewrite of history, Tarantino’s fictional characters, including both the titular “Inglourious Basterds” and Shosanna’s giant projected face, defy reality and end World War II in a gruesome climax of bloodlust and Old Testament wrath. The lingering

Why I’m Still Wrestling with the Ending of ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’

Spoilers ahead for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. When it was announced that Quentin Tarantino’s ninth movie would be titled Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, I figured it was just a homage to other Once Upon a Time movies like Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America. And yes, the film is set in Hollywood, but it turns out the “Once Upon a Time” part was Tarantino constructing a fairy tale of sorts as he took to rewriting history yet again. As my colleague Vinnie Mancuso wisely pointed out, the …

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Easter Eggs and Reference Guide

David Crow Aug 17, 2019

We try to list and explain as many easter eggs and 1960s pop culture references as we can after viewing Once Upon a Time in Hollywood once.

This article contains major Once Upon a Time in Hollywood spoilers.

In many ways, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood feels like the movie Quentin Tarantino has been building to over the last decade. A picture that takes his usual giddy historical revisionism trick and adds a wistful layer of melancholy and elegiac fear about the setting of the sun, this is a movie obsessed with the past and future, including Tarantino’s early personal history (he was six-years-old in the summer of ’69) and the tomorrow that is yet to come for his career.

Still, cast all that aside, and what remains is a heartfelt love letter to 1960s Hollywood and all the groovy things we’ve lost from that time of flower power,

Once Upon a Time in Rome

A significant subplot of Quentin Tarantino's ninth feature, Once Upon a Time in... Hollywood, involves the offer of work to fading movie stars from the Italian film business, where a few got lucky and reinvigorated their careers and others merely paid the rent or tarnished their reputations, if any.This notion is certainly not one of Q.T.'s notorious counter-historical plot turns: Italy had been offering opportunities to Hollywood and European flotsam since the fifties.In the era of Il Boom, the post-war economic miracle, filmmakers, including actors, were offered a great deal: they could live and work in Italy tax-free for a year. Projects were not only re-written to take advantage of this possibility, they were conceived for it: it's uncertain Roman Holiday would exist without the big tax break incentive.For actors, there was clearly another consideration, beyond the big, or at least tax-exempt, bucks and

The Dead Don't Die Original Soundtrack Gets Vinyl Release in September

The Dead Don't Die Original Soundtrack Gets Vinyl Release in September
The Dead Don't Die is writer/director Jim Jarmusch's unique, semi-comic take on the zombie apocalypse genre. As with his recent efforts Only Lovers Left Alive and Paterson, the film's score was composed and performed by Sq&#220Rl, the band Jarmusch and producer Carter Logan founded in 2009. Sacred Bones Records, the same label that released the band's Ep #260 in 2017, is releasing the LP edition of the score.

The score to the The Dead Don't Die is a true expression of where Sq&#220Rl stand at the center of a decade of sonic exploration. It is the culmination of their passion for analog synths, with guitar violence reverberating from the darker corners of Americana. It is at once a tribute to the classic sounds of horror and sci-fi, as well as a decapitation of traditional film scores. It is naturally supernatural.

From their arsenal of tools, Jim Jarmusch and Logan

Quentin Tarantino Says Western Director Sergio Leone Affected His Films “In Every Way, Shape and Form”

Quentin Tarantino Says Western Director Sergio Leone Affected His Films “In Every Way, Shape and Form”
Sergio Leone, the Italian director best known for his 1960s spaghetti westerns like The Good, The Bad and The Ugly and Once Upon a Time in the West, has long been an inspiration for writer/director Quentin Tarantino. But in addition to paying homage to Leone in his own films, Tarantino has now written the foreword […]

Quentin Tarantino Pens Heartfelt Essay on Sergio Leone, the ‘Greatest of All Italy’s Filmmakers’

Quentin Tarantino Pens Heartfelt Essay on Sergio Leone, the ‘Greatest of All Italy’s Filmmakers’
Quentin Tarantino’s love for Sergio Leone and the spaghetti western genre is no secret (his upcoming “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” takes its name from Leone’s iconic “Once Upon a Time in the West”), but that doesn’t make a new essay (via The Spectator) the filmmaker has written on these subjects any less fascinating. Tarantino penned the forward to Christopher Frayling’s upcoming book “Once Upon a Time in the West: Shooting a Masterpiece” (on sale May 21) and refers to Leone’s epic as “the movie that made me consider filmmaking” and “showed me how a director does what he does.”

“It was almost like a film school in a movie,” Tarantino writes. “It really illustrated how to make an impact as a filmmaker. How to give your work a signature. I found myself completely fascinated, thinking: ‘That’s how you do it.’ It ended up

Warlock (1959)

As the first wave of ‘adult’ westerns began to fade, 1959 gave us a burst of genuinely adult stories about the famed lawless towns of the frontier. Henry Fonda is at his moody best in a replay of his earlier Wyatt Earp, de-mythologized as just one more self-oriented opportunist in a land where even lawmen have an angle to play. But Fonda’s gun skills are impressive, and his deadly Clay Blaisedell is halfway to becoming the soulless ‘Frank’ from Once Upon a Time in The West. Edward Dmytryk almost rights his capsized directing career, and Robert Alan Aurthur’s screenplay delivers both an intense drama, & great gunslinging action.

Once Upon a Time in the Leone Family

Once Upon a Time in the Leone Family
Growing up as Sergio Leone’s career escalated segueing from the so-called “Dollars Trilogy” to “Once Upon a Time in the West” up to their father’s final masterpiece, “Once Upon a Time in America,” led his children Raffaella and Andrea to become steeped in two inextricably linked passions: film and family.

“Film has always been an aggregating element of our family,” says Andrea, speaking with Raffaella in the office that used to be their father’s in a villa on Rome’s outskirts, now the company’s headquarters. “In the evenings we would discuss movies and our father used to talk to us about his projects.”

Raffaella remembers spending every other summer of her childhood on one of the director’s sets in Spain, in the desert of Almeria where “A Fistful of Dollars,” “For a Few Dollars More,” “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly,” as well as other Leone films,

Cinematographers Share Their List of the 100 Best Shot Films of the 20th Century

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, the American Society of Cinematographers has released a list of the 100 best shot films of the 20th century.

This list was released to "showcase the best of cinematography as selected by professional cinematographers.” Here's how the list was put together:

The process of cultivating the 100 films began with Asc members each submitting 10 to 25 titles that were personally inspirational or perhaps changed the way they approached their craft. “I asked them — as cinematographers, members of the Asc, artists, filmmakers and people who love film and whose lives were shaped by films — to list the films that were most influential,” Fierberg explains. A master list was then complied, and members voted on what they considered to be the most essential 100 titles.

Here's a little sizzle reel that was cut together showcasing some of the films on the list:

It's hard to argue with the Top 10 films,
