Okay, so as described by Tyrion of the house Lannister, before he freed himself from treason charges making himself a king, “There is nothing in the world more powerful than a good story.”
And who else would you rely upon for telling a good story than modern day Shakespeare,
Yes, the second last movie of his career is coming out this month, and we are officially tripping.
Not because we cannot wait for the movie and to see Al Pacino but because of something more significant than the cinema.
Quentin dropping a bomb at us recently in an interview also claimed that this movie might be his last movie.
So, just before the magic vanishes in the thin air, we are revisiting, Quentin Tarantino’s most beautiful work in this blog.
This movie is what drew a line between the whole world and Tarantino. This movie was the milestone in Quentin’s career.
Dialogues of the movie were top notch and from the starting scene which spellbinds the audience.
Nonetheless, what sets the tone of the movie is, where Mister Blond beats a young police officer up, tormenting him.
Oh Mister Blond, how bad do we all miss you? People started calling the great director/writer a sadist, but he has gone soft with the time, as shown in The Hateful Eight.
Call me old fashioned, but I don’t give a tinkle’s damned who do not like this movie. This was a superb movie.
I mean, look at the first dialogue of it, “Forget it, it is too risky!” From the very first line of a two and a half hour long movie, people’s attention and curiosity tickled at the same time.
What was right in the movie? The shooting, the subplots, the music, the everything!
“Girl… You’ll be a woman! Soon..” the soundtrack is still very much alive today.
A dream comes true for everyone who ever loved severe theater.
Yes, the exceptional acting skills of Christoph Waltz and whatever Quentin could take out of Brad Pitt, marinated into a very well written and filmed script, brought us what we call today Inglorious Bastards.
Again, the first real conversation of the movie set the tone for it, when Colonel Hans sits in a quiet environment to a farmer Perrier.
The spookiest part is actually the silence when Colonel Hans is drinking the milk.
The Hateful Eight
This is what they call a movie that can kill careers, not of the others but the people associated with it.
Critics, hypocrites and feminists they all took arms against these movies.
Some people took it as a movie which promotes, violence against women, as Daisy Doumergue is beaten rather viciously by her captor, the Hangman and by the rest of the party in various sections of the movie.
My personal favorite pick from the movie is the ballad sung by Daisy before the climax of the film, “Jim Jones at Botany Bay”.
Hands down, this is the best what could have happened to Hollywood, all the action and no comedy makes a dull film affair, which wasn’t the case with Kill Bill.
It was the whole package, where a good looking girl kills men and is funny.
My favorite quote from the movie is, “Just because I have no wish to murder you before the eyes of your daughter does not mean parading her around in front of me is going to inspire sympathy. You and I have unfinished business.”
So, this was the definitive list of the super-giant movie director, Quentin Tarantino. Speaking for myself, I am super excited and cannot wait to watch, “once upon a time in Hollywood”.
Are you going to watch it too?
