Yeah, PF made about $200m worldwide on an $8m budget whereas IG made about $300m on a $70m budget. So PF is still the more profitable of the two. Either way, no studio will turn down figures like that.

I'm not a big fan of Inglorious Bastards, either, but I can't argue with its success. I just don't see that it's changed his status much within Hollywood. He'll always be an outsider to some degree simply because he'll never make the kinds of film that Hollywood largely associates itself with. They accomodate him, though, because his movies usually make a profit, but that's always been the case, from Reservoir Dogs onwards. Even Death Proof was a commercial success. Hollywood doesn't endorse directors so much as invest in them and if nothing else Tarantino is always a solid investment.

You could say the same about Scorcese too to be honest.

I disagree, Scorcese had several distinct eras all which were successful on their own merits.

I meant he's pretty much a total outsider who somehow manages to make what he wants and how he wants.

And none of his best films were HUGE hits were they?

And to odd my tuppence about Tarantino-I've enjoyed all of his films to a certain degree (although I've still not seen Django) but at the back of my mind I'll always see him as a hack. He's manage to get a career out of doing "homages" as he like to call them when they really aren't. Every film is shockingly ripping something off without a shred of originality and it pisses me off.

I've got friends who think he's God yet when I try to show the lsit of films he's copied they brush it off.

In that context, I see what ya mean, and in this analogy I'd say with obvious parallels that Taxi Driver was his Pulp Fiction, Goodfellas was Scorcese's Kill Bill and Gangs of New York was Inglorious Bastards, and Shutter Island/The Departed was Django..

Just watched this pretty harrowing documentary on Vice about this new street drug in Greece called sisa, it's a derivative of crystal meth. Journalism at its finest.

RAMPART

Woody Harrelson plays a bad LAPD cop.

At first, it's like, "Who needs this? Haven't we seen cops go bad in movies before?"

But this one kicks the shit out of the others. Visually innovative, emotionally stirring, morally complex. The acting from everyone is stunning.

This was made by a guy named Oren Moverman, who also made The Messenger (another brilliant Harrelson performance). He's a geeeeneeeooos.

This movie was made for suchfreinds.

I really liked Rampart, too. I expected it to be a kind of LA Bad Lieutenant but it ended up being its own thing. And totally agree about Woody Harrelson.

Just rewatched

 


No Country For Old Men

Great film. I know the hype was all about Javier Bardem but Tommy Lee Jones is the stand out for me. He's really come into his own these past few years.

Fucking shit. I was literally thinking as I was scrolling down and reading your synopsis, "Woody Harrelson, crooked LAPD, kicks the shit out of others, visually innovative and morally complex." This shit is made for me! And then I saw you already said that

Watched this again last night on the HBO.
I think I am the only person who laugehd all the way through it and the first Hangover. I think they are HILARIOUS. I am a huge galifianakis fan, and I love how the movie uses the same skeleton to cerate a whole new adventure.

This is not high art, it is a comedy for adults. I don;t understand the hate for it. When the dentist finds out he fucked a ladyboy...that shit had me rolling on the floor!

I am looking forward to part 3. I like R-rated comedies. the 80's had tons.
I give it a 7/10.
