|05.03.13||Blu-ray|| Tarantino's latest. I was actually pretty apprehensive to see this. I really wanted to like it a lot but felt like, since I didn't see it opening weekend or even in a theater, I kind of missed any kind of chance for happiness with this movie. I guess that means I was afraid it wouldn't be good.|
I liked it ok. I didn't find it hard to watch by any means, but I never felt immersed to the point where I forgot it was a Quentin Tarantino movie. I feel like literally every face on the screen belonged to some reference or friend of Quentin's. Even with the scene where he's playing an Australian miner (!?) i was less distracted by him than John Jarratt and Michael Parks. Once past the casting, the story felt like a standard Italian western with very little "Tarantino twist." I don't know. maybe It'll feel more organic on repeat views. I was more immediately taken with Basterds though.
