    Great review. First half was a little too play-by-play, but last half I completely agree with. Loved the movie (saw today).

    That final shootout was awesome… Spot on with that Wild Bunch reference. I wanted to put on a blue velvet suit and start whipping some red necks when I walked out of the theater.

    I love this movie though some of the language and violence makes me cringe. The primer is great, i have some Westerns to watch. Thanks very much.

      It’s rough but I think that was what QT was aiming for. He didn’t want it to be an easy experience like a TV movie might be. what was so great was that he managed to balance all of that harsh subject matter within a Western (Southern) action-adventure story. I loved it!

    Loved this post! Kudos on the recantation of the movie – well done with great references to other films. The “Gallagher routine” reference is perfect. While I love the film I too was taken aback by all the blood yet found I was fascinated at the same time. I almost checked to see if I had any traces of it when the film concluded.

    I will add that while I like DiCarpio’s performance, I thought the entire sequence in Candyland was a bit long. My only complaint about another wonderful film by QT!

      I can’t wait to watch it on Blu Ray at home just so I can look closer at it to see what I missed! The blood squibs: It certainly was a visceral effect! The blood was more like ectoplasm than the normal movie kind.

      I read that the movie may be re-released in a longer version later on. It will be interesting to see what was cut out and how it informs the overall story.

    As I mentioned before, I loved this film so much that I’ve already seen it 3 times. The violence didn’t bother me much because I expect that from a Tarantino film and because I feel it fits. I really enjoy the spaghetti westerns so this was a wonderful homage. You did a beautiful job of writing this and referencing Q’s other films. Well done!
