DJANGO UNCHAINED Reviews | Collider
I wasn't worried in the least.
Saw the re-release of Reservoir Dogs last night. It was my first time seeing that flick on the big screen. Loved it. The image quality of the digital transfer was superb but the trademark digital softness still bugged the **** out of me.
It's so hard to believe that that was QT's first film. So impressive. Before the show there were a few trailers from QT's personal stash. The awkwardly long trailer for my favorite Scorsese film "Mean Streets" that put a HUGE smile on my face.
Followed by the trailer for Mother, Jugs and Speed - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2NEGywTGF4
and the trailer for the Duellists - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChuhXe0G5lY
Did tarantino really do "the thing" with kathy griffin?
Ha, yeah...that was a great interview(on Howard Stern). QT really is a fun listen and he really seems comfortable with Howard...no big surprise really.

Heard a lot of great stuff about it.
God trailers used to be terrible.
Review: Django Unchained sets rowdy and bloody fire to Americas painful history
I think it's safe to say at this point that Quentin Tarantino's work speaks directly to the sensibilities that shaped me as a film fan, and when I see people dismiss his work as mere pastiche, it is infuriating. Tarantino is a thoroughly modern film artist, and his way of working is not something that would automatically work for everyone. But when he throws his various influences into a blender and creates one of his hyper-potent cinematic cocktails, the result is more than just those bits and pieces shuffled into a new order. His films speak directly to the way iconography works as a shared language for film fans, and he plays both to and against expectation in his work in ways that reveal him as one of the most sharp-witted pranksters working today.
