And simultaneously nobody cares at all about your film opinions.

As they shouldn't, I don't watch many films.

I have seen it, I loved it. Twisted, funny, satisfying. It had a stage play feel that I really dug. Great performances, definitely one of Sam L's best roles. Russell is hilarious. Jennifer Jason Leigh builds her character to a fearsome finish. Morricone's score is dark and gorgeous.

Probably could have been 20 or so minutes shorter. It really picks up once they decide to split the haberdashery into "North" and "South".

I don't know how to use spoiler tags on mobile so I can't talk many more specifics. There were some pieces put out there early that didn't quite fit into place at the end. Some things set up that didn't really payoff. (The busted door, the line out to the shitter,etc).

Sam L's monologue (you know the one) is an instant classic.

It doesn't totally reach the highs of a lot of Tarantino's other stuff but I still loved it. And he's still pretty easily my favorite filmmaker.

H8 is just twisted. It is like a stage play in a way. Gut busting moments and dialogue.

I read it compared to "The Thing" with mistrusting characters trapped in the cold and actually samples a bit of the music from it towards the end.

So far I have seen most of the movies that will be in contention for the Oscars with the exception of Carol, Inside Out, and Revenant (next weekend)

For me there is no clear cut Best Picture winner if I were an academy voter.

The critics have Spotlight as the lead horse. It's an excellent movie. One of those building procedurals that are fun on rewatch, but it didn't have any classic moments.

The Big Short is similar and Adam McKay brings a fresh vision for filmmaking on a timely subject Balancing laughs and outrage. I am tempted to vote for that as my best Picture.

I also think Sicario and Steve Jobs would make my top ten ballot. They seem to be getting shortchanged in the buzz department currently.

Absolutely see Inside Out when you have a chance. Go grab it out of Redbox or something. Even if you're not into animation, the creative world building and humor make it worth a try.

Yup. Inside Out is such a beautiful movie. My fondness for it just keeps growing.

"Hockey?!?"

I watched The Ridiculous 6 last night for some reason. I laughed a few times. That is all.

While we're still (kind of) on the subject of Tarantino, I hadn't seen Grindhouse until tonight. That shit is entertaining as it gets. I got exactly what I wanted out of it.

If I had to pick a favorite between the two, I would go with Death Proof because I have a thing for southern fried stuntman movies. Planet Terror was extremely well crafted in its depravity, and definitely funny, but I am really bored with zombie/outbreak movies at this point. Give me a decade or so to get away from that fad and I will be able to appreciate that one more. In general, I felt Tarantino's work was much more original. Plus, Kurt Russell was fantastic. Death Proof had a ton of unnecessary filler and the dialogue felt weaker than usual coming from these actresses, but the heart wants what it wants.

Visually, there were positives and negatives to both. The effects of Planet Terror were too modern for the era it was trying to capture (the bubbling skin was conspicuously high budget for a grindhouse film), but Rodriguez got the film grain and grit down perfectly. Tarantino didn't seem to try as hard to muddy up the aesthetic, but the costumes and setting were on point. Awesome cars too, I love that shit.

Great 3 hours of entertainment.

Marley Shelton was so hot in Planet Terror.

Surprising dearth of foreign language stuff there, and that you have the Hou so low. Also, where did you catch The Lobster? I saw it at AFI Fest and was bummed it didn't get a release in 2015.

I've been disappointed with much of what I've seen so far this year. I like Fury Road as much the next guy, but there's something very discouraging about it being a consensus #1 pick for many critics.

That being said, there's still a lot I haven't gotten around to yet. Tangerine, Room, Carol, Spotlight, The Lobster, The Big Short, Anomalisa, etc. My opinion could completely flip by the time the Oscars roll around.
