Not as bad as I expected. Heroes are heroic. Bad guy is bad-ass.
Batmobile is cool. Chins are large.
Seriously though, some big issues - like one bit where the only explanation for the character's actions are they'd read the script.
Wow. The cinematography in this alone is enough to earn a 10/10. Simply spectacular.
Incredible locations, brutal harsh climates. Beautiful storms and sunsets. Solid, authentic performances deep in the cast. And the score + audio mixing was first rate.
See this on the big screen.
Tarantino hosted a special 35mm screening in Sydney this week. I'd honestly never heard of this film, but apparently it was the highest budget Aussie film to date (when it was made in '78).
Incredible cinematography, powerful performances by the leads (not professional actors), confronting story and a little Tarantino-esque violence.
Was extra cool that the projectors were not in a booth, so you could watch for the cigarette burns, then turn around to watch, and hear, the reel change!
Super Panavision format looked fantastic.
The simple, static sets suited Tarantino's over the top directing.
The story lends itself to all the violence and blood.
Samuel L Jackson is Samuel L Jackson. Kurt Russell becomes his character. All the rest of the cast are fantastic (if over directed).
I have really not thought much of Quentin's last few films, this one is great.
See it in 70MM roadshow format while you can.
When the biggest complaint I have is that Star Wars still talks about the Millennium Falcon as a garbage freighter yet it still pulls out these amazing moves, you know its a pretty darn good film.
I saw it in both 2D and 3D - go to the 3D, having a Star Destroyer come out of the screen at you is worth it. And BB-8 is so darn cute.
