Got some stuff from the Redbox and it was slim pickings

 


Allright stuff. some good tension in beginning. NOT the best movie of last year by a long shot, but Hollywood loves to pat themselves on the back. Horrible last 30 minutes though. straight up fake drama, having the two "producers" be held up by a film shoot just outside the offices where they have to be to cover for the mission. stupid. I give it a 5/10.


 

BRUTAL. STRAIGHT BRUTAL. horrible So Horrible. The biggest waste of Buscemi I have ever seen. Why do people still think this fucker from 40year virgin is a good actor? He is fucking horrible. Dead eyes and face, like he sucked assholes to get his career and he now hates it. the WORST MOVIE I HAVE SEEN IN 2013. 1/10

death proof except for the last 15 or so minutes was an unbearable piece of shit. watched it this weekend. went to sleep in the middle of it and finished it the next day. we were saying "fucking zombies ate the budget and tarantino had to show just a bunch of people yapping", that sort of thing. well the budget was good for all the car shit though, i mean, eventually, fuck! yes there were disturbing moments here and there but ugh! only the final sequence was good. rodriguez kicked his ass on this one. i mean, if it was a competition (it had to be) rodriguez wins by K.O. plus the machete trailer, fuck yeah!

DP is one of the very few films that I genuinely hate. I was ready to write off Tarantino altogether until I saw Django, which I really liked. I was actually preparing myself to loathe it and was almost annoyed when about half way through I had to admit to myself that it's actually really good.

You mention liking the Machete trailer. Have you seen the actual film? It's great.

That was the movie where the penny finally dropped for me, that Tarantino is ultimately a snob. I could tolerate Inglorious until it becomes this bullshit ode to European film culture. That's Tarantino's problem. He doesn't simply like stuff, and want to celebrate it, when the dialogue in his movies reference some obscure movie or another it feels almost like a lecture, like he's somehow trying to educate his audience. Rodriguez never does that. The references are there if you know them but he never rams them down your throat. There's scenes in Planet Terror that clearly owe a lot to John Carpenter but Rodriguez never felt the need to signpost them, whereas you know the same scene directed by Tarantino would have to involve some character chastising another for not having seen The Fog.

To be fair about Inglorious though, I did really like the scenes with Brad Pitt and Christoph Waltz. The rest of it just made me cringe though.

I don't know if I could ever get bored watching anything involving Mexican priests carrying pump action shotguns. That's just a whopping big neon 'YES!' to me.

 


Can't wait for the sequel. Charlie Sheen as president.

well yeah tarantino is a name-dropping video store nerd by training, and that much has been clear from the start-- sometimes this works, and sometimes like the name-dropping british agent who tries to pass for german he gets himself (and others) killed for it. (if i was into psychoanalisis, i'd look into this character as a representation of his fear and guilt. but anyway...)

i liked inglorious basterds in spite of the cringe-worthy moments (e.g., "this is jewish vengeance!"). mostly because during those moments i was still laughing at the funny shit from previous scenes. pitt and waltz were too good to let you notice much else.

I thought Basterds was great, and have seen it twice. It was a very entertaining film.

Django, however, was so boring, so awfully plotted, so unbearably written from a cracka-ass perspective, that I grew to HATE it by the final reel.

The Shooting

On paper I should've loved this but it left me cold.

Yeah, on paper a Jack Nicholson Western would be the shit, but he did several, and they all simply suck. Its like, all of his curmudgeon characters would be so perfect, but didn't really develop fully until The Shining and after..

I dunno. The Missouri Breaks is one of my favourite westerns and he's brilliant in it. He was just miscast in The Shooting. There always has to be that slightly eccentric sense of humour with him for me but in that he plays a cold killer which just isn't him. Jack Palance, yes, but not Jack Nicholson.

I'm not sure about the curmudgeon thing. Again it's the slightly eccentric almost stoner humour that I really associate him with, so I suppose I think of his stuff from the 60s-70s like The Last Detail, Missouri Breaks, One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest, Easy Rider, etc, as being his real peak. He is great in The Shining though, but even there, playing a psycho killer, he still manages to be laugh out loud funny. The "Here's Johnny" line?

One of the best films I have seen in a long time. Nicolas Cage, a drifter, ends up in this small town where someone mistakes him for a hitman he has hired to kill his wife. Plenty of back stabbing and double cross in this superb noir thriller.

YES! Like 30 minutes shorter please

The only Tarantino flick worth 2 and 1/2 hours was Pulp Fiction, but that is because it was essentially four short-films combined so it never felt dragged out, more like episodes.

If they really want to give Affleck a challenge make him use the classic grey and blue Batman suit, enough with the all black suit.
