I could have sworn that was Carl Weathers but I suppose he would have aged since Predator.

Oh, I imagine some closeups of his female lead's feet will be in there somewhere.

Looks like a good cast. If Sacha Baron Cohen doesn't say too much or shows he can play it straight.

I saw Samuel L. Jackson in an iPhone commercial. He must have just wrapped a movie and had a half hour before he started the next one so he shot a commercial.

No, but it's a movie with the word "Django" in the title. There aren't enough of those floating around. But Tarantino wants you to think he's the only one who's ever heard of these things.

I should just go to a bunch of flea markets this summer and buy a bunch of foreign and/or exploitation flicks on VHS, then start my own cut/pasting process. I'll make sure to show a lot bare feet closeups, too. Then I'll ask the guy who hosts the retro college radio show for a soundtrack listing. I'm gonna make this happen.

I haven't enjoyed one Tarantino film. Ever.

Don't know why, I just hate his films.

My 2 cents:

I liked "Inglourious Basterds", but damn it so much I wanted more scenes of Nazis being ambushed.

I love Tarantino's films. I don't care if it's not cool any more.

His films are consistently fun. He has his own world, his own style. You can argue that his style is nothing more than a mishmash of elements of other people's style, but there is no one else out there turning out films that look and feel like his.

I know this because half the films put out in the 5 or 6 years after Pulp Fiction was released tried to emulate his style and they all failed.
 
2012-04-27 02:08:14 AM
I'd love to see Tarantino redo some common movie tropes.

Imagine, momentarily, if Tarantino did a Star Wars movie. Or a James Bond. Or a comic book movie.

A Tarantino western might just kick ass.

I agree. I like to think of his movies as an awesome band that is influenced by a wide variety of other great bands but somehow mixes it all together to put out a great sound that is undeniably their own.

I thought that was mostly Roger Avery (at least, if you listen to Avery).

I'd say True Romance was the one original movie QT had in him, but I don't see that a problem. No ones had an original idea behind a movie camera since some genius said, "I know! Two girls doing it! Really doing it!"

GreenAdder: It sounds like an interesting plot. Why just tag it as another Django movie?


Because QT is probably the best postmodern artist working today, and one of the things he's got going for him is that film is a fundamentally postmodern medium.

He actually wrote a long memo and sent it to EON Productions on how they should reboot the Bond franchise. They won't admit it, but some of the ideas made it into Casino Royale.

/I'd prefer to see him create his own spy movie series, as I believe one of his points was that Bond HAS to be set during the Cold War. It's why he doesn't work so well any more.

I was going to make a joke on the order of "oh, good, a conflict so obviously black and white that Tarantino couldn't possibly break suspension of disbelief by overdoing the caricatures the characters present", but then I remember that his last film broke willing suspension of disbelief by making the goddamned Nazis more evil than the audience could reasonable accept. He's like the Kevin Smith of action movies at this point, some good stuff in his past but he needs to stop thinking that taking the theme of his last film and jacking it up by another couple notches counts as filmmaking.

He's like in that 1% of directors who seems to completely ignore modern movie-making trends. Yes, you can say some of his stuff is derivative but he mashes them up in a way that hasn't been seen before.

And besides the violence his films are also very dialogue heavy so way to fail with that snarky remark, subby.

If you have any doubts he can make great movies after Inglorious Basterds, you're an idiot.

It could have been worse. I heard he really wanted to include a scene where they herded a bunch of Jews into a camp and then murdered them in a gas chamber, but decided it was too over-the-top and nobody would believe it.

The wife will probably be in shackles, barefoot. He'll cut to her shuffling in a chain gang. Lingering over the many damaged feet until the camera pans to her feet. Which inexplicably have pink nail polish on them.

Some of his stuff is derivative? Some? There were maybe five shots in Inglourious Basterds that weren't derivative of Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah, or the director of the Dirty Dozen.

Not that that's a bad thing. It's still a good movie, but Tarantino is more of a cinematic mix tape DJ than some trend defying auteur.

Also, who cares about how much violence is in this movie? As long as it has the requisite foot fetish photography and lots of racial slurs, I'll be just fine.

I'm still unashamed to admit that I love Tarantino's movies (though apparently I may lose my Fark card over it). To me each new one is an event in and of itself, and I always find them enjoyable. I sometimes like to read scripts of upcoming anticipated flicks, and so I read Django Unchained a few months ago (it's easy to find online). I expect that apart from Pulp Fiction this will be his best film yet. The Christoph Waltz character is incredible and will probably earn him another Oscar nomination.
 
2012-04-27 07:23:46 AM
CSS-True Romance, got tix to the sneak peak premiere, went to it with my girlfriend and we of course loved it. Enjoyed the hello out of it, and 3/4th's of the way into it, as we are sitting on the end since she hated to have anyone sit on the other side of her, nearly get a lap dance from one Christian Slater, a tad drunk and unable to negotiate the dark aisle up. He was very nice and apologized, asked us how we liked the film, and then bummed a smoke. Had a VERY nervous and pissy assistant rush over and hustle him away, but for one brief moment, I was one with Clarence. Thank you Clarence, for not vomiting on us. We have always appreciated that.

I'm with you, Most of them are great (at least good) movies. My mom watches them more than I do, so I think people's preference to them boils down to whether you like his distinctive style or not.

2012-04-27 08:50:04 AM
Have you seen Sukiyaki Western Django? Very hard to engage with the story. But the acting is awesome and so are the visuals. I don't know why you'd force your non-english speaking cast to speak english. I'd say it was a movie poster, like you could put that on a flat screen and let it play on your wall all day (with the sound off) and it would actually be a worthwhile piece of art. With the sound on you'd have to listen to quentin tarantino imitate the non-english speakers cadence and intonation, which was just barely easier to understand, but how the cooking eggs thing fit into the entire story? I got no clue.
 
2012-04-27 08:52:00 AM
Add me to the list of people who still like Tarantino. I don't care if he is influenced by preceding artists. That's how even better art is made. From his story in Four Rooms to Inglourious Basterds, I've loved every minute.

I don't get the haters. Inglorious Basterds was easily his best. He's matured a LOT as a director, though he still lacks a good editor or someone to convince him to cut the chaff from his films. He has the potential to be one the greats, is often sunk by his ego.

I agree completely. Not saying they cant make any more Bond films, they just need to return to the proper setting.

A current spy series would almost have to be based in the Middle East or CHina/Korea.

do people really think that? Death Proof is farking AWESOME. Tarantino's dialog always feels pretty real. none of the scenes in Death Proof drag at all. Hell, probably the best scene in the film (that isn't the final chase scene) is Zoe Bell and the other girls just shootin' the shiat in the diner.

do people just want to be spoon fed violence? the girls talking in Death Proof feels every bit as authentic as, say Travolta's scene in Pulp Fiction when he is just buying product at his dealer's house. The final chase scene is arguably one of the best chase scenes ever filmed.

I like all the dialogue with the second group of girls. It's the first group of girls that bored the shiat out of me. Fortunately, Rosario Dawson, Zoe Bell and Tracie Thoms kicking the shiat out of a sobbing Kurt Russell made up for everything.

There are two types of people in the world: Those who Love Tarantino's work, and those who want to punch him in the head for it. Count me as one who LOVES this guy's work!

I never liked Kung Foo movies: Kill Bill 1 & 2 are my favorites of all time. I don't care for WW2 movies, yet IB is the farking shiat! (We got a Nzai here who wants to die for his country. Oblige HIM!) Tarantino takes the most obscure shiat into the most played out genres, and makes it sing!

I think Cohen is going to surprise the hell outta people in this one, and should pave the way nicely for folks going to see him in the Freddie Murcury Biopic. I remember thinking 'Jim Carrey can't pull off drama' because all I could visualize was Ace Ventura, and damn if I'm not still pissed he never got a nod for 'Eternal Sunshine'.

And Death Proof. Zoe Bell riding on the hood of that Charger is the shiat!!!!!!

/I *heart* you, QT..tee hee...call me!

"I love Tarantino's films. I don't care if it's not cool any more.

His films are consistently fun. He has his own world, his own style. You can argue that his style is nothing more than a mishmash of elements of other people's style, but there is no one else out there turning out films that look and feel like his."


Big yep. If it's QT, I'll watch it at least once. Usually I wind up watching more than once. QT is the farkin' man.

Seems like there's more love than hate for him in this thread. As someone who is also a fan of cheesy older exploitation movies and kung-fu I love his work. To me his movies are visual love letters to genres he enjoys. His influence led to working with the Wienstiens on releasing high quality DVD/Blu Ray transfers of some of the best kung fu movies through the Dragon Dynasty label. I really like Western movies, so I'm looking forward to seeing Django.

I've enjoyed every QT film except for one, Kill Bill Part 1. I thought Uma Thurman handled that sword with all the finess of a baseball player aiming for the fence. Nobody writes dialogue like Tarantino however and he is more well-known for that than violence in his movies. And the whole foot fetish thing as well.
 
2012-04-27 12:08:12 PM
Also, there isn't a director working today who uses music more effectively than Tarantino.
 
2012-04-27 12:09:32 PM
Long on violence, short on everything else? Has subby ever watched a Tarantino movie? Sure there will be violence, but QT's known for writing lots of long dialogue scenes building up to the violent parts.

Why is everyone coming out like its some ground-breaking discovery that he takes ideas and themes from other movies????

He must have said in 1,001 different interviews that he is constantly watching old movies, then he goes out and films one of his own in whatever styles floats his boat that week (Samurai, WW2, now western, etc)

I just hope he uses an actual score this time. Inglorious Bastards I think suffered from not waiting for that original Ennio Morricone score they were going to do.

Tarantino flims are required by law to contain 50% violence, 25% inane chatter and 25% close-ups of women's feet.

(Loved Kill Bill and IB. Death Proof...not so much)

He's like in that 1% of directors who seems to completely ignore modern movie-making trends. Yes, you can say some of his stuff is derivative but he mashes them up in a way that hasn't been seen before.

Some of his stuff is derivative? Some? There were maybe five shots in Inglourious Basterds that weren't derivative of Sergio Leone, Sam Peckinpah, or the director of the Dirty Dozen.

Not that that's a bad thing. It's still a good movie, but Tarantino is more of a cinematic mix tape DJ than some trend defying auteur.

Also, who cares about how much violence is in this movie? As long as it has the requisite foot fetish photography and lots of racial slurs, I'll be just fine.


Don't forget the shot looking up from inside the trunk of a car.

Live Tarantino films, but I hated Inglorious Basterds... To be fair, it was my own fault. My expectations were tainted because of the initial rumors that it was going to be a Saving Private Ryan style bloodbath starring Stallone, Willis, Arnold, Adam Sandler and Eddie Murphy.

Not sure if srs...

The greatest westerns of the last ten years are:

Appaloosa
Open Range
Red Hill (modern day Australian)
The 3:10 to Yuma remake

frepnog: Mugato: 9beers: Yes, because QT isn't known for anything else. He writes better dialogue when he's drunk than other screenwriters are capable of.

Except for Death Proof. The dialog scenes in that film were brutal to sit through.

do people really think that? Death Proof is farking AWESOME. Tarantino's dialog always feels pretty real. none of the scenes in Death Proof drag at all. Hell, probably the best scene in the film (that isn't the final chase scene) is Zoe Bell and the other girls just shootin' the shiat in the diner.

do people just want to be spoon fed violence? the girls talking in Death Proof feels every bit as authentic as, say Travolta's scene in Pulp Fiction when he is just buying product at his dealer's house. The final chase scene is arguably one of the best chase scenes ever filmed.

Death Proof rules.


Death Proof is the, um, proof that Taratino is the most successful feminist director ever. See also Kill Bill and Jackie Brown.

Discuss.

(Inglorious Basterds also had a little tiny bit of that, but that was mostly a "Jewish revenge flick". Note that two seperate groups of Jews (well, one group had one Jew and one black guy) kill Hitler-at the same time-and neither even notices the other group even exists.)

Me. I like all kinds of lady parts. The feets ain't one of them.

"The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" is supposed to be a great western, but I haven't seen it yet.

Huge fan of that show..... Huge.....

how about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford ?
loved that too.
 
2012-04-27 10:14:38 PM
oh - I see now that this was mentioned. Yes, it's not a shoot-em-up, but I loved the character dynamics and the cinematography and, indeed, the pace... Not to mention that I am a sucker for films that make every effort to stay true to the known historical facts, which this one did in spades. cheers

/look out little lady, hell is coming for breakfast.

It's excellent. It's also one of those rare movies which breaks the "show, don't tell" rule with a lot of narration, but it works perfectly as the narration is all psychological. It's also very close to known historical fact, which is rare.

/I really need to watch that again.

I didn't expect a shoot 'em up and while high in historical accuracy (no one has a mowed lawn!) I didn't expect to be so bored.

I don't really consider The Assassination... to be a western. It's more of a period piece crime drama. To me it has more in common with The Untouchables or Miller's Crossing than The Wild Bunch or Unforgiven.
