  • The Blair Witch Project 1999

    ★★★★½ Watched 25 Oct, 2014 1

    Not much of anything except for some pretty grainy vhs and 16mm footage and sound, some decent acting and a dreary forest. But somehow when they get in that forest I was in constant panic mode.

It's ambiguous in it's meaning, it has no plot, it's main character has a lot of…

    Jackie Brown, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction. Quentin Tarantino's filmography reads like a symphony of revenge, blood, sam jackson and laughs. His latest entry, also a two word title, is Django Unchained. And it may be his best movie yet.

    Revenge has really taken a hold of QT's writing as of late. He seems to really get inspiration from these characters that are hell bent on hell sending. If you thought the protagonist in Kill Bill was…
