Top 5 Spaghetti Westerns on bluray?

With the exception of Clint Eastwoods Man With No Name Trilogy what's out their on the cheap that you would recommend?

Prefer poorly dubbed movies over movies with subtitles .

The double feature of Grand Duel and Keoma is super-cheap and well worth it. Grand Duel looks outstanding; Keoma has that strange CCD noise floating overhead that you see in a bunch of Italian HD presentations.

Django suffers from that same issue, but if you can look past that, it's $12.99 on Amazon.

My Name is Nobody is only a little more than $10 on Amazon.

There's more that I'd recommend, but I wouldn't say they're "on the cheap".

Re: Top 5 Spaghetti Westerns on bluray?

Is there any difference between the Sep 12, 2017 release of Once Upon a Time in the West and the previous May 31, 2011 release?

EDIT: it is the same release

Not exactly cheap, but well worth it



Also, next time Kino has a sale you might be able to get some good deals on the ones they've put out-
Death Rides A Horse
Roy Colt & Winchester Jack
Bad Man's River
The Mercenary
Face To Face
The Sabata films...along with a few others

There's a Sartana boxset coming out in June that looks impressive. MSRP of $100, but can likely be had for a lot less. Amazon pre-order of $66 which isn't too bad for 5 movies.

I can't comment on the quality of the BD but I doubt they will ever be re-mastered.

Has anyone seen these before? Recommended?

This thread has gotten me thinking about this genre.
Off the top of my head, the only ones I own now-aside from the Leone films- is The Big Gundown and Cemetary Without Crosses, both worthwhile movies.

Wasn't a fan of Navajo Joe, and I can't recall any beyond those that I've seen.

I wouldn't mind bulking up this part of my library this year, assuming there are some good sales down the road.

Just noticed there is a
promotion promotion
going on over at Amazon UK for anyone who is region free

2 for 25 (with a further reduction due to the VAT tax)

Unfortunately these are the only two SW available, though there are plenty of other good titles offered in the mix.

Re: Top 5 Spaghetti Westerns on bluray?

I'll give another nod to Grand Duel/Keoma. Two excellent Italian westerns, decent prints, and dirt cheap.

Not including the Leone masterpieces, I'd probably go with:

The Big Gundown (I got a cheaper German blu of that one)
Day of Anger
Cemetery Without Crosses
Death Rides a Horse
The Mercenary
Face to Face

I just got the Ringo double feature in the mail, but I haven't watched either one yet. I think I had a terrible DVD version of one or both, but I don't remember them.

I had the first Sartana one on one of those poor-quality compilation DVDs--I think it was decent enough, as I recall. I may pick up this set.

Re: Top 5 Spaghetti Westerns on bluray?

Arrow Video's Day of Anger is essential. One of my favorite Spaghetti Westerns and the transfer is spectacular.

My Name is Nobody is another great movie but the Blu-ray transfer leaves a lot to be desired.

Re: Top 5 Spaghetti Westerns on bluray?

You only said to omit the Man with No Name trilogy, so I'll recommend Sergio Leone's other great Spaghetti Western masterpiece: Once Upon a Time In The West which is easily found on Blu-ray for about $10
