The new master is S. Craig Zahler, everything in Dragged Across Concrete feels fresh like Reservoir Dogs felt when it came out. Dialogue, characters, extreme violence, un-PC as fuck. Hail the new master.

Bone Tomahawk came out the same time as Hateful Eight and I only just saw it a couple of months ago, different movie but also has Kurt Russel in it. It's a way more engaging movie but on a lot of levels I liked Hateful Eight too. . Nice and slow paced but kinda PC as Tarantino has been completely sucked into the Hollywood machine.

Only thing I’d ever agree with you on and gonna go and have a shower because of it. But yeah Bone Tomahawk is amazing 10/10 and dragged across the … was incredible too

Leonardo DiCaprio annoys the shit out of me. He looks like a little kid

When he starts preaching about climate change I think "shut up you little bitch"

I think Once Upon is the best Tarantino in a long time.

Seems to be a very divisive film, looking forward to watching it. Kermode-wannabe on 5 Live was raving about it.

It's a five star film for me. If you like Tarantino you'll like it. If you don't it might drag. Most in common with Jackie Brown. It's fun and intelligent and chatty and slow. Dicaprio is really funny. It's Tarantino responding to all of the dialogue/criticism around his image in a thoughtful and playful way.

It's a very artistic movie. Obviously not going to appeal to those that can't think outside the box. One of my favourite Tarantino Movies for sure. Even put it as high as top 3.

10/10.

The movies that divide opinion so drastically are always worth seeing IMO. Tarantino is the best at it.

May I suggest a Jason Statham film for a bit of glorified violence and less meaningless dialogue for you then.

Better to look like a kid, than have opinions and tantrums like a kid on an internet forum.

The mother of my child is at a baby shower and I’m sat in the medieval Odeon in Salisbury. It starts in 5 minutes…

The screen is not so big, refreshments are pricey but good.

I’ll post my review tomorrow.

Usually Tarantino is a master of dialogue and that's what his last two movies have lacked. The same engaging dialogue that's all his previous films had. Given this movie has literally zero story/plot, then it needed it. Plus the characters aren't there. This film has it's moments for sure but I have no intention or desire to see it again.

Oh that's right, because I didn't enjoy a 3 hour long critically acclaimed hang out movie. I must be stupid and like dumb action films. Come back with your opinion or go fuck yourself pretentious cunt.

Oh wait, your review is 'It's a very artsy movie'… Laughing out loud Laughing out loud Laughing out loud

"Artistic" was my choice of description. Slightly more pretentious . Sticking out tongue
