Movie Reviews

DVD contains 9 minutes more footage than the VHS version
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I compared both VHS and DVD and they trimmed out tons of scenes here and there for a total of 9 minutes cut on the VHS version. why did they trim those before? Some of the cut scenes include Sara and Hogan traveling, and some are scenes like in the saloon, and in the hideout with the rebels.
Also the DVD picture shows much more from side to side and a lot more on the top and bottom compared to the VHS version fans of the movie have had to live with for years. The quality of the picture is fantastic. This is probably the best improvement over VHS I have seen.
They also changed the cover from the old VHS version! It still looks great on the DVD, but the old VHS version showed the Mexicans and French fighting! why did they remove that? This is an action type western movie. If you see the cover it almost looks like it might be a romance movie. They should not have changed the cover.
There are a few times when Hogan shoves Sister Sara over a wall or into a tree by placing his hand on her rear, and she emits a female 'oooh!' They removed all those sounds and replaced them with grunting. I guess they thought that was objectionable, but it's amusing the way it was and they should have left it alone. The menu also has this annoying music playing also. Why did they pick that music? They should have used some of the music from the movie. However, a great film and an excellent transfer to DVD."
We make a good team

"In an inspired bit of casting, sexy and effervescent Shirley MacLaine is cast against tough and laconic Clint Eastwood. The result is a frothy little frontier romance that is two-thirds wonderful. The last third, when TWO MULES FOR SISTER SARA returns to its action roots and involves us in a long rebels versus the establishment battle scene, is more an intrusion than a culmination. I would have liked twenty more minutes of Eastwood-MacLaine and hang the rotten French colonial garrison.
This is a funny and straight-forward love story that bears comparison to the best teamings in action history; TWO MULES doesn't embarrass itself when set against any of the John Wayne-Maureen O'Hara films, which is about as high praise as I'm capable of.
My favorite element - throughout the movie MacLaine rides the smallest mount I've ever seen. The burro she's saddled to is shorter than many domestic dogs, although both rider and mount maintain as much dignity as the circumstance allows.

"DAYS OF HEAVEN was once a film without a released soundtrack though many fans had begged for one. Finally one was released and it was nominated for a Grammy Award to boot. This is a very different Morricone than most people will encouter if all they've heard is his music for the spaghetti westerns. It has a haunting, nostalgic feel to it, and goes for lighter orchestrations than the usual Morricone score. He doesn't always score the most obvious scenes and that makes for a different feel to the picture, but when he does score a scene, you do not forget the images it accompanies. A brief note, the CD contins a cue that is not in the film, and a couple pieces from the CD are shortened in the film, especially THRESHING, one of my favorite cues.As to TWO MULES FOR SISTER SARA. I did not think it was a lightweight incongruous western. It fit right in with Eastwood's DOLLAR films, though it's more American due to the director DON SIEGEL (INVASTION OF TH BODY SNATCHERS, DIRTY HARRY, etc.) Perhaps it's Morricone's sense of humor that doesn't allow his score to become too serious; his score seems to play off the fact that Shirley MacLaine's Sister Sara realy isn't a nun but someone of a less-than-sacred profession, and the music reflects her playfulness and ribaldness. One note: there is one cut on the CD that is not in the film. Instead of it, they could've put on the attack by the Indians, or Sara's climb to the top of the train bridge.These two scores show Morricone's range and are a welcome addition to any Morricone collection."
A mixture

"'Days of Heaven' has one of Morricones most haunting soundtracks which complements the movie's vast visual presence and doom ridden narrative. Its combination with a lightweight western comedy sountrack on this CD soundtrack is incongruous - thank goodness for programmable CD players!"
