Ok, but a bit too obvious. Colin Farrel in one of his less memorable roles, not bad, but why him. 

Rachel Weiss is pulling a Keanu reeves and looks like she hasn't aged in 20 years.

Hateful Eight was a decent movie. The Kurt, and Jennifer Jason Leigh were great. The movie is kind of long, but you don't really notice it. Liked it better than Quentin's previous movies. Doubt I will ever watch it again though.

Couldn't have been too good then. It isn't better then his last couple btw. Django and IB are much better films.

DJango was okay. Didn't really like Bastards. One thing I noticed with this movie, is that Quentin REALLY likes to degrade white people. I know he uses the word nigger a bunch, but he always finds different ways to humiliate them on screen. Don't know if it's a self-hate thing, but his fascination with it is kind of weird.

Watching Amy which is the Amy Winehouse biography. Big talent but a truly damaged person.

in a few decades when people look back on tarantino's catalog, I suspect Basterds will be considered Tarantino's enduring contribution to cinema.

Sunday afternoon after a day at the beach with a large Tanq 10 and tonic, first of many. Love the sports jackets worn by Clint throughout the film. Americana cinema at its best sartorial splendor. Voilence tame by today's standards was a great film then and still in. Great soundtrack as well.

Tanqueray 10 is my favourite. Too few places carry it.

Everybody's got Tanqueray. And Bnker's Club. I don't need that shit. Gordon's, fuck off.

She is indeed a beautiful woman, and has aged well, but the acting here is nothing to talk about. That might be  the result of a mixture of little talent, lousy script and absence of instruction.

 

Dark and dens woods is oh sooo symbolical, specially when it is set against the cold town and the naziregime at the institution, but it doesn't help much when the story is too naive and obvious. It is impossible to believe in these people and their strivings, both because of the unbelievable manuscript and the unintentional instruction. There are talent among some of the actors, this movie doesn't give them the ability to show what's in them. I really don't understand how Farrell could accept a part as this. He can do so much better than this.

 

Lanthimos does not succeed with his ambition to criticize society and it's restrains on human relations, just because the critique is to superficial and clumsy done. But than it is also a point that dystopian tales are a challenging genre - many before him has made turkeys when trying to.

Did Quentin have another foot fetish shot in the movie?

lol the funniest is in From Dusk Til Dawn when Salma Hayek jams her foot in QTs mouth and pours beer down her leg.

Michael Kohlhaas, The age of uprising - Arnaud des Pallières (2013)

 

 

 

Mads Mikkelsen is good as ever, but the theme on dealing with sorrow and revenge is blurred out in this 1500 story about the merchants who try to get justice for the unpredictable and random rule of power from the nobles.
Nice scenery and the use of light is good, but the story somewhat in the dark.
