Saw Pulp Fiction for the second time...10/10.

Then decided to watch more Tarantino...

Kill Bill vol. 1 - 8.5/10

Wow, I have never seen a movie with more satisfying violence than this. Thurman is amazing in the role and the fight scenes are gold. Looking forward to vol. 2.

Fire in Babylon - 8.5/10

It's a sports documentary about the rise of an all black cricket team from the Caribbean that dominated the whole world and permanently changed the way the world saw them as well as how the Caribbean blacks saw themselves and their own culture.

Just an awesome awesome documentary and renews my respect for that team. Even shows how money influenced all of it as well. It doesn't even matter if you don't even like sports, this is an important doc to watch IMO.

In The Name Of The Father seems to be glossed over a lot. I think it's one of the best film of the 90's...which is a remarkable decade for films.



Good to see people watching it.

I really liked Lincoln. I thought the frame they chose for the movie was fantastic. Focusing on just a small part of his presidency but using it to illustrate the times. I think this is going to win most of the Oscars this year.

I think he definitely was our greatest president. The movie doesn't even focus on some of his other achievements, such as his achievements in the war and how he saw the correct strategy better than his generals and was willing to keep replacing them until he found one who could pursue the correct strategy.

Moonrise Kingdom - 9/10

Was pleasantly surprised to see this at the redbox kiosk today...rented it and absolutely loved it. Amazing cast with some of the most beautiful film making I've ever witnessed. The score, cinematography, acting were just off the charts. Incredible film...one of the best of the year.

During the scene where Django was beaten by the Brittle brothers, Django was making love to his wife. The Brittle Bros. pulled him out/off of his wife and raped her. Django was forced to watch her get raped and beaten.

Hildi's story was a bit on the brutal side. She was sold to a family who wanted to use her as a stand-in wife type figure for their son. Hildi through force of will and guile manipulated her way to a power position in that particular relationship. Everything was going swimmingly until her Boyfriend/Master took her on a night on the town to Greenville, Mississippi to the Cleopatra Club where Candie conned her Boyfriend/Master to losing Hildi in a card game. When the B/M tried to beg his way out of the losing Hildi he was killed by Candie. A naked Hildi tried to run, but was dragged a way kicking and screaming.

After the shootout, Hildi was raped by the fella who fondled Django's balls while he was tied upside down.

Django privately humiliated Stephen. He smacked him around, doused him with a bucket of water, and while Stephen was cowering, Django told him that Stephen was his n*gger now, and would answer to his beck and call at any time.

Without Hildi's scenes Django Unchained is just a boy saves princess movie set in the south.

Didnt read the script but thanks for summarizing up my questions.

It kinda makes sense now on how Hildi always freaks out when someone grabs her. That kinda bothered me about her character but it now totally makes sense. She's had serious shit happen to her...

About the bolded: In what part of the story did this happen? I'm trying to think of where in the storyline this would fit in and I cant think of one.

Thanks again

Tomorrow I'm going to an advanced screening of "Broken City" featuring Russell Crowe and Mark Whalberg. Will let you guys know how it turns out.

Might even meet Dirk Diggler himself since he will be there.

Does anyone know if the bolded is ever going to get a wide release? I've been waiting for a while to see it and nowhere around me is showing it.

I was looking forward to seeing Promised Land, but its getting some pretty mediocre/bad reviews
