More Silly Shit That Has Crossed My Mind
The other day, I popped 'A Fistful of Dollars', a fantastic film with a now-legendary score by Ennio Morricone, into my trusy DVD player. My intention was to compare it to Akira Kurosawa's 'Yojimbo,' the 1961 Western-styled samurai film on which 'Dollars' was based, since I had just watched 'Yojimbo' a few days before.
Anyway, my point is this: I don't know how to pronounce "Morricone."
My other point is that the movie I put in after 'Dollars' was 1994's 'Wolf,' starring Jack Nicholson and Michelle Pfeiffer (and James "Always Plays A Dude Who Is WeirdAboutSex" Spader), and guess who wrote the music for this one? That's right: Ennio Morricone.
So is it "Morrie-cone?" Or "Morri-cone-ey?" "Morrichoney?" I want to be able to throw his name around like I'm cool, but I need to know how to pronounce it first, or else the opposite effect will be achieved.
