I got excited when I saw that one shot that was leaked but I stand by what I said originally this movie looks bad. I do not like the Richardson + Tarantino marriage, the movie's cinematography is actually bad given the material and I regard Richardson as a MASTER but his style for this type of movie is not suited well, as it was not suited for DJANGO UNCHAINED and INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, it was suited for KILL BILL. I do not like how he made Daisy into this cartoon character, its like he writes these amazing scripts and then he fucking kills them, eh it so hard to put into words. I am excited to see this movie for the E.M collaboration, thats a real victory for Q.T! Whats annoying is all these trailers using hip-hop to sell their movie to an "urban" audience/ general public, its pretty whack, like in the trailer for Black Mass, whack attack! The 2pac-RICK ROSS( RICK ROSS, so fuckng lame) during the really cool shootout in Django Unchained, I always watch that scene on mute.
It will be interesting to see the movie in ULTRA PANAVISION but judging by the trailer, something you should never do, the movie does not make great use of the format, and I bet people will be like WTF is the difference, and if the movie turns out to be be lame then it will do it the format more harm than good.Most of the movies shot on the format were not good, the Ben Hur remake is probably the best movie shot on the format. THE REAL DOPE FORMAT was CINERAMA, I do not know why some technicians have not figured out how to get that process into two cameras or one, in Russia some camera techs developed what I think is probably the coolest film format for entertainment/multiplexes( i love film, 2d that is but I am open to the possibilities of stereoscopic motion picture) its called STEREO-70 not a lot of information on it but from researching it, if I had the opportunity to make a big budget movie within the studio system I would totally opt for STEREO 70mm, whether I would shot with STEREOSCOPIC STEREO 70 that is another story. ( it would obviously be in 65mm and projected in 70mm.)
I will still go out and see this but Q.T has really disappointed me lately, I love reading his scripts and I think he is one of the best screenwriters in hollywood but his directing is not good and his choice in assembling his teams( crew ) is poor, on paper its a dream team but in practice the result is flat.
