Re: I Like The Way You Die Boy - Django Unchained Movie Discussion
Saw it yesterday and have mixed feelings about the film.
I love the screen titles and the way in wich pay homage to the old spaghetti westerns, in this department i was surprised by how the film seems more a Corbucci film to a thing made by Leone.
But talking specifically about the movie, Tarantino seems to evolve again and to take a new aproach in the way he wants to film, the use of the music for example was amazing and not just a mix of good songs like in all his other films. In fact, he erased some of the most memorable things in his two last films, the extendend conversations and the use of the panoramic shoot between them, this was a dissapointment because the movie is too fragmented for moments wich is proved by the cuts of bassically any tension using humor. Also the excess of the slow motion is painful for moments, seem like a excuse to by on "style filming" more than a justified thing.
I loved the take that the movie make on slavery but is clearly that Tarantino was just having fun and not trying to surpass himself like in his two past flicks, wich seems better.
Is a great movie but not something i will fall in love with
