This was my first time seeing a Quentin Tarantino movie in the cinema. I went with my bro and needless to say it was excellent! There was a great mixture of humour, serious subject matter, (obviously) bloody violence and character development. I thought Christoph Waltz was absolutely the best thing in the movie. Just such a great character surrounded by great characters.
I saw this movie.... I'm sure of it.
I definitely went to see this at the cinema.... I just can't remember a SINGLE thing about the plot, characters.... anything.
I do remember that like the first Transformers movie the editing was absolutely terrible. But that's all I've got I'm afraid. I can't believe I'm saying this, but maybe I should give it a re-watch!
I absolutely adore this film.
Claude Raines puts in a dynamic performance as Griffin, and the visual effects are outstanding for the period. Ok, some of it is a bit cheesy... notably Una O'Connor's hysterical landlady and the infantile performances of almost every minor character in the piece.
Add to this the hammy turn provided by most of William Harrigan's delivery and you'd almost have a stinker.
But the maniacal Griffin saves the whole thing. He is the mad counterpoint to all the silliness and buffoonery around him. You can't watch this movie without Claude Raines' voice staying with you afterward. It's haunting... chilling even.
