DVD cover designing
Than goodluck with photoshop 7 ;)
photoshop 7 is the old version (2002) I made a mistake.
after 7, 8 till 10 comes, than they started with sc1, sc2 etc.....latest version is sc5

still you can work very professional as very simpel with the version you have, ask your friend to give some simple instruction.

you can create a new file (size of dvd sleeve, also important set on 300dpi, otherwise te pixels ae to big) if you copy - paste the scan of your vhs sleeve into the dvd sleeve file, you can scale the sleeve to the size of the dvd sleeve........doesnt look so nice, but its most simple. you can also start cutting up the orriginal scan to keep the orriginal "scale" that you dont stretch the images.

sometimes it help to searche on youtube if you want to know something

Cango korkusuz Adam dvdr review
Posted Image
the movie I review today is:
Cango korkusuz Adam (1967)
Directed by:Remzi Jöntürk
special future of the movie is that it has Kilink as the bad guy in it.

disk info:
the disk I got is as far as i know the only print available....... Its a tv broadcast recorded on video, transfered to dvdr. Tv broadcast was on turkish TRT int tv.
runtime: 74 minutes, black and white, fullscreen, turkish audio with no subtitles

the movie (as most turkish westerns) uses soundtracks of other spaghetti westerns.

Im a bit disapointed in the movie.......It has all ingredients to make a magnificent movie! we have django, we have yilmaz köksal (who played Ceko) and we have the bad guy Kilink!
Sadly non of these elements are fully used.....django could have had any other name, yilmaz köksal who plays Ilaç is not very ceko like at all.....he is a bit of a clown....the slapstick humor that is written for him isnt funny at all! Kilink is cool, also his dog, the few scene's we see them both in are good.....sadly not so many of these scene's are their. Also the girl of the movie "Rozita" isnt very hot......she's a bit chubby!!! than the story doesnt goes very fast....isnt much happening....also the romantic scene's between Ilaç and Rosita could have been skipped.

for introduction:
:) = good guy/girl
:angry: = Bad guy!

Posted Image :) Django - Tunç Oral

Posted Image :) İlaç Satıcısı - Yilmaz Köksal

Posted Image :) Rozita - Figen Say

Posted Image :angry: Gringo - Muzaffer Cıvan

Posted Image :angry: Jack - Yavuz Karakaş

Posted Image :angry: Kilink - Oktar Durukan

Posted Image :angry: Kilinks dog

the movie:
A group of friends are having dinner at Seriffs hous.....the are selebrating something. the evening is getting to his end all gasts leave the hous. Seriff has a document that he hides in a bag. seriff hears that a group of man are coming closer to his hous. he calls ones of his mexican employes and gives him the bag with the hidden document. he tells the mexican to get away from the as soon as possibel. A few mnutes later the bandits arrive and enter the house, seriff tries to defend himself...but its useless....the bandits take over.
the next morning Django wants to visit seriff, but he finds seriff hanged.

The bandits are looking in town for the mexican employe of Seriff...he has the document the bandits were looking for. the mexican wants to hide in a wagon so he can leave town without notice.....but as the wagon drives of....he falls out, without the bag! The bandits see him, and shoot him.
The bandits fun doesnt lest very long, soon they find out the mexican doesnt has the document on him.

Django wants revenge for the dead of his friend , he finds out soon the bandits are behind the murder. By looking for the bandits he finds out what happend to the mexican employe and Django meets the owner of the wagon were the mexican was hiding in....Ilaç

Django and Ilaç both deside to take a room in the town hotel. Django goes to bed, Ilaç tries his luck on the poer table.......it doesnt take him long to loose all his money incl the bag with the hidden document......als ilaç meets Rozita here....she is the owner of the bar.

Kilink is getting angree, his man still didnt get the document he wants! He helds one of his man (Gringo) responsible for not getting the document! Gringo begs Kilink not to kill him. kilink spares his live, but orders Jack (an other bandit) to cut of one of Gringo's hand! Jack cuts of the Gringo's hand and feeds the hand to kilinks dog!

Ilaç is being followed by Kilinks man, Django comes to help...a few silly gunfire scene's come.......bit boring.
Kilink is getting very angry that his man werent sucsesfull again, so Kilink stabbes a knife between one oh his mans eyes!

some things happen that arnt that important.....the sheriff gets killed, the twon folks want Ilaç to be the new sheriff.....Kilink comes into town...kills a girl.....django and Ilaç dont knwo what happend....Rozita tells them it was Kilink....and the misunderstanding is cleared. Ilaç and Rozita fall in love...boring...not funny stuff happens.....

Ilaç and Rozita go out for a pick-nick....kilinks man show up and kidnap the two....django rides out to save them. Ilaç is hanged on a spinning wheel so Jack ca trow knifes at him, Ilaç can escape and also goes searching for Rozit.

Django finds Rozita, just in time....Gringo was on the point of raping her.....but Django shoots him. Django gets captured byKilinks man, Ilaç frees Rozita....Kilink shoes django his tru identity.....Kilink is some guy who we saw before in the movie...but i couldnt remember who it was.......probably the mayer or some other clean nice citisan, that we would have never suspected to be Kilink.
Ilaç and Roziza have to think quick, Django is on the pound of being crussed by some wooden spike block.....Ilaç starts shooting....and every bullet that he fires kills atleast 1 person. Now the 3 are united again and start fighting against Kilinks man.....they only have 1 gun among the 3 of them.....so they hav to tos the gun around so that they can all shoot some bad guys!
Some very silly scene come now....Rozita slides down a wall and shoots a guy, Django sits in a rolling barrel and shoots some guys, Ilaç turns around and shoots a guy that is just standing on a roof........all bullets have magic! ll bandits stand in the open and re sitting ducks.......you only have to look at them and the fall dead on the ground...very dull!!!

Rosita gets kidnapped again! ilaç is wounded...but that cant stop him and django to go after rosita......some silly shooting scene again......django jumps across the scene, and the bad guys keep getting hit by his bullets.
Jacks arm gets blown of by a piece of dynamite.......but you can see his arm still under his blouse! very convincing!
Final shoot out between django and kilink....kilink hasnt has his unform on anymore...he found the time to get dressed between all the shooting and kid-napping.......django shoots him, and trows a piece of dynamite on him so he gets coverd by big blocks of stone.

django rides away.......Ilaç and Rozita hold hands and wave django goodby......The End

Not a very recommendable movie!!!

Profesyoneller dvdr review
thank you for the kind words miltos.

the movie is very enjoyable (atleast from my point of view) if you get the chanse to get a copy......than you should take the chanse!
Levent Çakir also plays Zagor.

their are atleast around 20 turkish western missing from my collection......1 or 2 should be out their on dvdr ...... just cant get my hands on them.

the next review will be the dvdr tv broadcast of "Remzi Jöntürk (1967) Cango, Olum Suvarisi".
kilink is the bad guy in the movie! ....... a real turkish delight ;)

these turkish movies are a class of their own......the budgets were very low ...... thats why most of them are in black and white. but still the quality/creativity can be seen in them. Im not watching many other movies at the moment....Im just fulltime busy with my studies.........so Im only watching turkish movies at the weekends when I have some time off.

If any of you have request of any of the titles I have for reviewing, please led me now....

WOOF! dutch sales

I've been really thinking about what to do with the tape collecting, because of  the fact I got married, started a shop and the baby coming, but I've decided to not give it up.

good choise hans! and congratulations with the baby etc!

wors case you put your tapes in boxes and leave them in storage......than who knows....in 10years when you have a bit more time again, maybe you will enjoy the old dusty tapes again.

plus I think if you do deside to sell your tapes you will get very disapointed how less you will get for them, than the stuff you cant sell ... in the end you also have to do away for 50cents each......so probably you should be happy to get the money back you invested......I know I wont :P

their are so many people selling dutch tapes at the moment that the collecters market is fully over flown ...... also alott of people dont have so much money anymore as they used to have.

can imagen maybe trading tapes for dvd's.......but that is an other discussion :lol:

Profesyoneller dvdr review
the movie I review today is Profesyoneller (1971)
directed by Yavuz Yalinkiliç

Posted Image

disk info:
the disk I got is as far as i know the only print available. looks like its a direct film to disk transfer!
their is a constant white noise over the audio track, and every now and then some the picture skips.

the movie (as most turkish westerns) uses soundtracks of other spaghetti westerns, in this movie we can also hear some spanish/mexican music.

the movie is very enjoyable! shame that it so unknown!
I would say that its stands above alott of italian spaghetti westerns!
the movie is probably inspired by corbucci's revolution trilogy. the main carrecters have nice looking outfits......Jack has a bit of a cheap 70's look......but it doesnt bother so much.
the carrecters all have this comic/spaghetti attitude..... we have a priest, that isnt much of a saint, a midget that steals money of the corpses, a mexican girl that doesnt talk, but knows how to handle a knife, a photografer that has a machine gun hidden in his camera, a psychopath bandit that has some serious mental problemms.......and our main man, that is pretty much the most normal of all(jack). didnt understand the ending of the movie......than I also didnt understand any of the dialogs......didnt spoil the fun for me.

their are more dialogs in the movie as in the others, and i can imagen that the dialogs are important for the story line.......since i dont understand turkish.....I had to interpetade the one and the other.

for introduction:
Good = :)
Bad = :angry:
Posted Image :) Jack - Levent Çakir

Posted Image :) Jim - Yilmaz Serif

Posted Image :) Girl - Gülten Ceylan

Posted Image :) Priest - Abidin Görsev

Posted Image :) Midget - Cüce Ömer

Posted Image :angry: Fernando - Kazim Kartal

the movie:

the first scene we see a group of soldiers who want to rape a girl (our girl). Amexican man wants to protect the girl, so he jumps the soldiers and gets killed. the girl runs away and the soldiers follow her. A spanish/mexican song starts and we see fiews of the landscape.

A young man (jack) arrives in his home town, he probably hast been their for a while because his mom is very happy and surprised to see him. the town is controlled by bandits and soldiers.........the bandits are tollorated by the soldiers, they work together.....

Jack visits his old friend Jim (a photografer). Jack doesnt like how the bandits and soldiers thread the villagers and asks Jim to help him to do something against it.....Jim cant be bothered.

Jim meets the girl, the midget and the priest......dont know if they were allready friend or that they just met. The priest overhears a conversation between jack and jim and he runs of to his friends the girl and the midget to tell them that jack and jim also want to attack the bandits.

Jim sneaks into the base of the bandits pretending he is drunk and he wants to take a group picture of the soldiers. he makes some jokes with the soldiers and lines them up next to each other against a wall.
ones jim is behind his camera, the camera turns out to be a machine gun! and he shoots all soldiers. jack continues to Fernando's HQ.
he confrontates fernando infront of all his man and punch him in the face......their were some dialogs...didnt understand them......but i can imagen that Jack and fernando are related....and maybe an other bandit is a third brother?.......anyhow jack can walk away without anything happening after he beat fernando in te face.....normally people get kileld for that!

Jim, Jack, the midget, the girl and the priest team up together to attack the fernando.....Jack kills a bandit....he has some special relationship with the guy...he is very upset after he killed him.....so I can imagen this maybe has been the 3th brother??

they continue the attack, this time they send in the priest......the priest walks into to camp and takes one soldier private so he can confess. and they take out the soldiers.
for the second post they send in the girl. all soldiers have eyes for the girl, so the other 4 members of our group are dressed as bushes and sneak by the post.
the kill all soldiers, the priest has a hidden knife in his crucifix.

something is going on at fernando's place...the guy is mentaly pretty messed up.......he just had the dad of a girl hanged......the girl and dad are also related to jack or Jim. after the bandits hanged the old man they take the girl to fernando...who wants to seduce the morring girl......she not in the mood......that same man who is toutching her...just killed her fathe......fernando is offended and tells his man to kill the girl! fernando has his hands to his head..and you can see his mind is playing tricks on him........ its difficult to say what this ment for the movie....what the relationship of the old man and the girl were for Jack and Jim.

anyhow.........for some strange reason Jim, the priest and te midget are captured by the bandits! wasnt explained or showed how......they are hanged up-site down with a rope around their enkels above a barrel of watter........so they have to pull their self up not to drown!
Jack finds a way to free them, all bad guys are killed thanks through some acrobatic and gunfire.
the group continues their journy to fernando's hide out.
The final scene.....jack and fernando are face to face in a basement......a fist fight starts. the girl and the priest are also their, they cant shoot fernando, because the risk is to high that they hit Jack. Jack punshes Fernando in the face. he falls on a box, that is filled with dynamite. fernando holds a piese of dynimate in his hands and threads to blow everybody up if they dont back-out...........than Jim apears with his fotocamera/machine gun says something in turkish smiles, points at his camera -SON- the end ?????
