Makes it obvious that this is his spaghetti western. Besides, there have been lots of Django movies that have nothing to do with the original story.

This, and I can't quite put my finger on it. Maybe it was the lackluster dialogue or maybe it was because every scene seemed to revolve around the schtick of: "Oh, he's in this, too?"

I thought IB and Dogs were boring and frankly not fun to watch.

I enjoyed the mess out of kill bill and pulp fiction.

And I swear he's already done one. Didn't be work in sakiyuki django? Good god that was a terrible movie.
 
2012-10-11 11:36:30 AM  
I'm in. Then again, I'm like what Tarantino does as a director. Both in terms of the screenplays themselves, as well as the cinematography. He brings in some great visual quotes and homages to great films, he celebrates in the very rich heritage of the genres of films that he does, and he does so in a way that is both smart and fun. Mind you, I grew up on the films that he likewise loves. I sat in drive ins with my Dad to see some of the films that he does honor to, and in that he brings up a certain nostalgia.

I got a huge kick out of Kill Bill, because he did what amounted to a very stylized Yakuza movie, with a lot of other elements thrown in, but at its heart, it was a modified chambara movie in the classic sense. Sword fights, revenge, regret, and more. It was a gorgeous movie from a cinematic standpoint--the scene with the Bride rolling into the the Crazy 88 club was amazing for a continuous long shot. Technically, it was a brilliant shot. I like directors that can pay attention to such things, and make them work. From that standpoint alone, the guy is brilliant alone, but he makes movies that are fun, and he produces films that give a lot of young directors some juice to keep things fresh and exciting too.

Then again, I'm a big film geek, so there's that. He makes films for folks who love that sort of thing, so I'm in.

One of his trademarks besides stylistic violence are long dialogue-heavy scenes. Have you seen his movies or just the trailers?

Well, for one Jules is pretty much my favorite movie character ever. Not just because he acts all badass but for the scene at the restaurant at the end. And it has the best dialogue out of any of his movies.

IB wasn't what anyone expected given the trailers and premise. I'm QT fan and I only somewhat liked it the first time. It took me about 3 views to really love it and understand how well it was written and how excellent the actors were. Don't take shiat from anyone on this tab, and in defense of White Chicks...the first 10 minutes are hilarious.

Pulp Fiction will always be ground central for Tarantino. He'll never get over it, never top it.

He's always had a profound difficulty getting past his insane desire to quote and pay homage to these B-movies, incessantly. It's almost all he is. When he can get past it, you have better results, otherwise it's almost strictly fanboi stuff.

Pulp Fiction manages to create its own language out of those parts. Almost all of his other movies fail to get past that jumble of inhaled movie detritus in the guy's brain. Kill Bill is unwatchable for most people, Reservoir Dogs comes off now as almost all attitude, a trial run for Pulp Fiction. Jackie Brown is his most human film, but is still too wedded to its B-movie roots to really soar. Inglorious Basterds was a complete mess with maybe two good scenes, the rest a bad knock-off of films like Von Ryan's Express and The Dirty Dozen, far better movies.

What am I missing? Ah, Deathproof. Just an exercise in neo-grindhouse, which almost literally no one cares about. That's why we still have those movies around, so we can see the originals.

Movies are disposable things for me. I won't sit and watch one 3 times because there are other forms of media for me to consume, and if I found it boring I just turned it off unless I was getting banged somehow.

I just don't have the interest to sit through a movie multiple times. They're not that interesting to me, and I usually figure out all the details I care about quickly.

Pulp Fiction was just an an extension of the style and out of sequence storytelling that Tarantino had already done in Reservoir Dogs. Jackie Brown was his last good film, and everything since then has been a steep downhill slide. That last fill he made, Slaughter at the Nazi Filmhouse, or whatever it was called, was damn near unwatchable.

For Clint, you could argue he played a bad guy in High Plains Drifter, as he does essentially rape two women. But he was also the hero, as he takes revenge on all who wronged him and you can't help but root for him. That's what makes that movie so great.

WTF?

John Wayne was cast as Genghis Khan in the 1965 film "The Conqueror." It pissed off a lot of Asians back then (and now!), but no one really cared what a bunch of slopes had to say about The Duke.

IMDB

And then he (possibly) died of cancer brought on by the radiation he was exposed to while filming it.

Right, because it couldn't have been all the smoking he did for his entire life...

Wouldn't Occam's Razor say that if 91 out of 220 cast/crew of a film come down with cancer, the filming might be somehow involved?

You have to consider the times though, it was a movie made in the 70's about characters of the Old West. You can barely call it rape.

Of course today it would be rape rape.
Maybe even rape rape ra.

tonguedepressor: I think I might partake of this cinematography diversion. I like that they have Dicaprio in a evil dude role so here's my question:

Does anyone know if Clint Eastwood was ever cast as a bad guy in film or television?

Or John Wayne for that matter?


The Searchers had Wayne as pretty much a bad guy. Wasn't really a good guy in The Shootist either.

I didn't know I wasn't allowed to enjoy Deathproof. I must not have the most updated list of approved movies. I liked most of it, but the speeches in the bar went on way too long. I liked IB overall, too, but damn that bavarian cream scene seemed to last as long as WWII.

It was pretty clearly a rape rape. The only consideration you have to make for the time was that she was enjoying it before it was over.

Came here to say this...

And it's been years since I've seen any of them, but weren't all of Eastwood's spaghetti western roles basically just the same dirtbag in a different town? He wasn't a "good guy" in any of them, just one bad guy out of many in whatever particular movie it happened to be, no?

Also, William Munny of "Unforgiven" wasn't exactly a good guy charater for Eastwood either (he was hunting humans with the intent to kill so he could get money, not exactly chivalrous)....he was just a bad guy with a noble(?) cause....

Electric_Banana: The Searchers had Wayne as pretty much a bad guy.


This is worth repeating. It's possibly the Duke's best-known role, and when he finally finds Natalie Wood... he tries to kill her for being Comanche.

I wonder how that played back in the 50s, when virtually everyone was at least mildly racist.

I'm hit and miss on Tarantino. I loved Inglorious Bastards and Reservoir Dogs,and liked Kill Bill part 1. Didn't like Pulp Fiction, Death Proof, or Jackie Brown. This one seems like a toss up but for some reason I really dislike the dialogue in the trailer. It didn't seem to fit with the setting
 
2012-10-11 05:45:50 PM  
I always find it difficult if someone asks me "Did you like (whichever Tarantino movie they're wondering about)?" I find his stuff entertaining, not mindbogglingly great.

PF fit my sense of humor nicely. I'm also a sucker for a revenge tale, so I enjoyed IB and KB. I have trouble deciding if I can call them 'good', and that's why I usually say "I found it entertaining, but if you're not overly fond of his other stuff, whatever bugs you about the others will likely be there in this one too."

I'll probably check out Django just because.

Me, too. But for some reason this doesn't look all that great to me. I'll see it for sure, I am just not as excited as I usually am for a QT movie.

That's because Pulp Fuction was his masterpiece. He will never top it. So everything afterward is good, maybe even great, but you can't help but feel disappointed after watching it.


That's an opinion. I like the indy feel and intensity of Reservoir Dogs over Pulp Fiction. I might even put Kill Bill (I and II) ahead of Pulp Fiction.

It don't matter...about the only writers/producers/directors I make it a point to see are Scorcese (sp?), Tarantino and the Coen Brothers.

The orginal story ran on TV for a year back in 1968 - 1969.

"Jemal David and Earl Corey. One black, one white; one ex-Union soldier, ex-Confederate officer; one ex-slave, one ex-slave owner. Together, they are the Outcasts."

Those words opened a series telling the story of bounty hunter Earl Corey (Murray) who teams up with newly released slave Jemal David (Young) in the 1860s.

Although only 26 episodes were made, its short run probably reflected the rapidly changing U.S. racial climate in the late 1960s more than the quality of the series itself. The show was also criticized for "excessive violence

B.L.Z. Bub: All style, no substance. Like watching a goddamn music video. I don't mind that lots of people dig it, I just don't get why it's claimed that his movies are somehow "better" or have more "artistic vision" than your average Baysplosion-filled blockbuster.


If we accept your premise than it's because Bay's movies lack both substance and style. Even at his worst, in Tarantino's films cool people do cool things. Michael Bay's movies are just a series of explosions and if the transitions between the explosions resemble dialogue or plot it's purely an accident.
