Do you lot think that sometimes the Italian homages were better then the films they were copying, I'd like to hear your thoughts on this because it's always interested me

Famously ZTF made money than Dawn, probably just better at sales and distribution. Can't think of a better example than that, still prefer Dawn tho.
