He's got a schtick that just keeps getting fresher.

Wow, some shots look as beautiful as a Cohen Brothers film.

Can't wait.

I think it's time to forget about the Tarantino that made Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs now. He's a much more visual filmmaker at this point so expecting a film in his old vein is going to set you up for disappointment.

Yes, this does remind me of a Coen Brothers film, except I'm interested in this one in contrast to most of the Coen's works. Maybe Leo looks like he's pushing the overacting button a bit much, like Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds. They all want to be Samuel L. Jackson but can't quite pull it off.

I'm pretty excited about this. I'm a die-hard Tarantino fan. The man can do no wrong for me.

And I wouldn't call it a "schtick". It's a style. A trademark. He may not stray from it, but that's okay with me. If I want to watch a Tarantino flick, I know what I'm getting.

Good action, good dialogue, and a whole lot of silliness and gore.

I just hope he doesn't interject a bunch of bizarre music that doesn't fit with the period or mood.

Quirk is fun, but not at the expense of the experience of the film.

He'll use allot of the Spaghetti Western which will fit right in considering it's the Genre he's paying homage to, and of course that style of music is not really of the period for the most part. smile

Yeah, compared to most of the snooze-worthy movies that have come out recently, this one looks like it might be worth seeing.

I'm not a Tarantino fan by any means (I think he's quite a shitty person), but I don't avoid his movies just because he's a dickstain.

I just hope he didn't decide to play a character in this film.  He's really a horrible actor and tends to choose the most non-believable roles for himself.

I agree with you that it doesn't need to be and shouldn't be redone... it's just right as is, but the sentiment may be because he didn't get to direct that one.

I think Dogs and Pulp were both visually stunning movies, especially for the time. He created a genre with those movies that many writer/directors have tried to replicate but they usually end up looking like Grade B QT. If anything, I think today's QT movies have bigger budgets so he gets to exploit his visuals more.

And Brad Pitt played the American simple minded Nazi killer perfectly. His acting was a perfect mixture of doofness and respect for the job he was assigned. Part comedy/part drama. I crack up at his "Bon Jor No" every time I see that part.

I don't think it was a collab. From what I recall QT is angry and disgusted with Stone's interpretation.

But I love that movie as well. Brilliant interpretation, different style.

one wrote and one directed. I absolutely LOVED the characters, I  LOVED the flashing of the memories and the black and white back and forth. I LOVED the soundtrack. I LOVED the words flashing, I LOVED the ambiance, LOVED so many little screen shots, there were a few little boo boos I am aware of in the directing but other than that there are SO many amazing things to that movie that counter act that. I just think it was amazing. I also really liked the alternate ending!

Right. But not collaboratively. Just pointing out that QT was not happy about that. HE wanted to direct it and stated that would be the last time he didn't have control of those decisions about his work.

And yeah. The back story on that movie is fascinating.

understood. Overall, the end product was amazing regardless. Of course he would have liked to have done the whole thing. Not sure how they got put together to start but it was an amazing collab.

It was good, I just would like to see Tarantino's original vision.

When a guy(Tarantino) punches out another guy (Murphy) for ruining the movie his wrote. I personally wonder what the first guy's original vision was.

Originally the movie wasn't about Woody Harrelson's character at all, it was about Robert Downey Jr's charater.

Not quite.  Tarantino did the story but the actual screenplay was written by Stone and two others.

I just love the blood splatter on the cotton! I love his movies because of the dialogue. He creates the characters and gives them the most interesting things to say.

I've always enjoyed Tarantino's bizarre music choices. This doesn't appear to be your run of the mill cowboy movie, even if he goes off the beaten path it would be fine.
