WTF? Shit like that is pure Tarantino comical magic. I love it!
he is driving ms. daisy.
DiCappuccino was great. Loved it. Loved it.
Yeah like bugs bunny and daffy duck bloody gore. (gesh...)
There's violence and then there's violence.
But this was not your typical every day six 0-clock news violence. Duh...
This was cartoonish-like black comedy violence.
How can people have missed the satire?
Tarantino is making a point whenever he shows "his" type of violence.
Shooting kids in school with NRA approved assault weapons, thats violence.
This Tarantino brand of violence? That is Tarantino-brand satire violence.
Same thing with pulp fiction.
And what is up with all the hissy fitting about the "N" word used in the movie???
Come-on Spike. We know you are not THAT lame.
I found this movie to be the most exposing and realistic characterization of how slavery really was, back in that time of the good ole 1800's.
You have to realize that slaves WERE property. Period. Nothing more, nothing less.
Well, maybe a lot less in the end...
Like an old car, or old horse, or old piece of machinery... once it has fulfilled its usefulness, once it no longer performs as expected, it becomes totally dispensable.
Just like the DiCaprio plantation slaves in the film.
Extremely telling of that era, and the life of every day slavery on the old plantation.
Quentin Tarantino got this down pat.
Never before have I seen the life of slavery so profoundly illustrated.
And shown how completely disposable slaves were.
How they were nothing more than wealth and physical property to the owner.
Again, Tarantino was playing it up, but in a way most people probably missed.
This was 1800 slavery. Not the blacks in the field picking cotton all day and answering yess sir, naw sir.
But instead, the slave having nothing more in value than the value of the boots worn on that owners feet.
Once either should wear out, disposable.
Tarantino "is" amazing.
We really have no idea in todays world. We think of that era as Lincoln and black vs white, free vs slave.
Slavery was so much more than cotton picking.
To the owner the slave was basic wealth. Beyond that, nothing.
Basic wealth and status, but only as long as "it" held some hint of value.
Like ones boots or ones wagon or ones horse and donkey.
Useful property of limited value. Property that eventually depreciated into worthless.
Im a bit surprised people missed just how, with this Tarantino film, his intensions implanting the idea of how deeply the very suggestion to putting an end to slave-ownership lifestyle, to ending that era, could have cause so much hate and anger to rise up that it would literally tear a country apart causing brother to kill brother.
And not to mention the president responsible would be so profoundly hated that death from assassination must have been guaranteed.
Quentin Tarantino knew. Tarantino knew just exactly what he was saying with this movie.
In his own indisputable Quentin Tarantino way, naturally.
Adding in some entertainment value to keep our attention.
Awwww... Quentin Tarantino.
Only he could tell this so well, as he does, if you pay close attention. And only if...
And Spike Lee must be totally living on the moon to be so offend by the "N" word while missing the whole point.
A point mildly disguised using satire and black comedy.
Yeah, you might say I loved this film.
Only a genius as Quentin Tarantino could pull this off.
Ps. Best movie line? "I like the way you die".
I'll see it when I get a chance, and that's when my local library gets the DVD. Maybe my favorite Tarantino is Jackie Brown, a little overlooked but really great, and rewatchable. The Kill Bill movies didn't do it for me but I only saw them once, I'll give them another try one day.
Now, I don't see a ton of movies, I have a lot of other things to do, but I did see Jamie Foxx in Ray, and I was blown away. I rarely think an actor has nailed a bio-pic, but I think he nailed it squarely.
This happens to me, and I like it when it does. It worked for you, and that's great. Sometimes I get in my own way when watching a movie, have issues with it that prevent me from enjoying it, getting into it, accepting it on its own terms. I think a lot of times "taste" can get in the way. What is taste?! There's not an easy answer to that one.
There was a lot of rampant gun violence in this movie....should be banned.:colbert:
that and 110 nwords . Instant classic.
i give it 4/10.
overuse of n-word
I doubt it was as violent as Saving Private Ryan. Ban that too?
I'm tired of pickin' this mother fuckin' cotton on this mother fuckin' plantation!
Has there been any movie on ATOT that you didn't give a bad rating too?
ecstasy of order: the tetris masters
It didn't glorify violence like a QT film does. QT kills Kindergartners.
I can't agree/disagree because I haven't seen it yet.
BTW - This is why Samuel L. Jackson is the man.
Why shouldn't she love Kill Bill? That was a great movie. Your mom sounds like an excellent lady. Granted, if you don't love Kill Bill as well, maybe she doesn't deserve commendation
because she obviously failed to raise you properly.
Order of performances:
1. Christoph Waltz: As awesome as always.
2. Jamie Foxx: A close second. I like how he handled the evolution of his character.
3. Samuel L Jackson: I never thought I'd see him play a character like that. He really stretched himself acting-wise.
4. Leonardo DeCaprio. While not as good as the other three, I'm not sure how someone could not appreciate how well he acted that character. He did very well.
Honorable mention: Don Johnson. Both scenes he was in were lol-errific. I was rolling!
I thought it was an alright movie. My only complaint would be that it seemed to drag on a bit. Cristoph Waltz's character definitely stole the show as almost every line was full of amusing and/or witty banter.
Oh, and I
cried a bit when the wagon blew up... no more wagging tooth!
Movie was fantastic... Bit drawn out at the end.. but worth the admission!
I heard that in the scene with Leo
when he cut his hand on the table that it was unscripted and really happened. He continued to stay in character and proceed to wipe his hand over washington's face to her horror lol
Loved the movie though.
I also heard that the pace issue was because he got a different editor and that something happened to the previous person that did his other movies.
Seemed like the same editor who was asleep at the wheel for Inglorious Basterds.
Interesting. Foxx was playing essentially the same role/character as in Collateral. He starts wide eyed then becomes stone cold. The character development of Django wasn't as good as Collateral though.
DeCaprio nailed his role and I thought he and Sam Jackson really carried this movie. The movie didn't really get going until they showed up to save the day. It dragged and plodded while Waltz and Foxx were the only characters.
I bet most of the folks above are just torrenting it and complaining.
Cheap ass bastards.
Great movie front to back, fantastic performances out of every one, great dialogue, great everything. As expected of Tarantino, who is at least 10 times better than the 2nd best movie maker out there.
I didn't understand the character who was in there for about 20 total seconds (think it was played by Zoe Bell) with the handkerchief around her face, and looking at some really old photograph at some point. Can anyone explain that?
