DVD: What a difference 11 years makes. I may have rewetted this after I bought the DVD. I really liked it in theaters - at least I thought it was the best of the prequel trilogy - but today I'm not so sure.
Throughout the entire viewing, which I split up into two nights, was think about how bad the CGI looked. The CGI looked great projected in 35mm but viewing it digitally, not so much. It looked like a great video game.
Ugh. Maybe I just wasn't into it - but next time, I'll stick with the original 3 or FORCE AWAKENS.
DVD: I finally watched the whole thing. It looked better on my plasma but not by much. Why would you should an event and a location like that in it's opening and mute the colors? I wish the look of the film was the worse thing about it, but it was not.
You always have to compare certain elements to past Bond films when it comes to reviewing these films. Let's do this quick:
Pre-title sequence: Impressive opening shot but…
Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
