ISLE OF DOGS was absolutely fantastic and I laughed every time a dog sneezed...

Also watched ED WOOD which I didn't like... Burton is directing a stop-motion ADDAMS FAMILY adaptation though... His chance to redeem himself...

Ok... On to MOONRISE KINGDOM...

All this talk of Bill Murray made me go and check out Kingpin from the library  :D

Just got back from Midway. Really enjoyed it.
I know violence is not the answer, I got it wrong on purpose

Re-watched Jackie Brown for the first time in about 10 years. I do love Tarantino and that is not only his most underrated film, it may be one of his absolute best.

Same here. Saw it with my kid, and it was nice to be able to talk with him about military history. It's reasonably well acted and the CGI is great.

Those poor torpedo bombers though...  :-[  ???  :'(

Watched Pandorum the other night and found it interesting, although not great. Sci-fi/horror films tend to be a mixed bag for me and Pandorum was no exception. I liked the premise but once they injected the creatures into the mix it kinda fell apart. I'd probably give it a 6/10

Yep, Jackie Brown is great. Loved Robert Forster. I've found that some of Tarantino's films haven't aged well, especially the movies that made him famous like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Of his recent output, I really enjoyed Django Unchained and Hateful Eight, but that's because I like a good western. Excited for his Star Trek film to come out  8)

The thing about JB is that it was made to look like a late 70’s film in the first place, so watching it now over 20 years after it came out is pretty surreal as it makes it very hard to place (with the exception of SJ’s backwards Kangol cap of course )

Is the Star Trek movie definitely on?

@neph93 Yes, does anyone know the status of it?

Side note, it seems to me his last (four?) films would have been better suited for a 6-8 episode Netflix series. He is adding too much nowadays. I don't mind it but they don't feel like complete films, and it makes me nostalgic for a film like Jackie Brown. And, if you care, it's my favorite film of his, @neph93. Anyway, I know he released a longer cut of the Hateful 8 on Netflix as a tv show. I'd rather see him do something like that nowadays from the start.

I suspect that it is. The studio would be insane to turn him away and since the Star Trek franchise is a cash cow i'm sure they'd want to capitalize on Tarantino's ability to bring in movie goers. If it becomes rated R even better. It might seem like a cliche at this point but Samuel Jackson as a Klingon would be bad ass

It didn't help that Hateful Eight was 3 hrs long. It's definitely a slow burn of a film but well worth it. I also like that this movie is basically a Western version of John Carpenter's The Thing, not just with the characters but also with the environment, the plot and the music, some of which was music from The Thing soundtrack

That would be cool, but I don't think Sam Jackson would spend all that time in make-up.  :D

I’m sure he spent a lot of time in makeup for his role in Django

Agreed. I think the long running success of Pulp Fiction somewhat overshadowed it's release. I often wondered if it would've done better, had it been released a bit later.

Reservoir Dogs will likely always be my sentimental favorite. It was quite impressive how well QT did with his first feature film. To this day, every time I hear "Stuck In The Middle With You", I can't help but do the Mr. Blonde shuffle.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.
