Peter Dinklage sure is great.
Also: Caleb Landry Jones seems to be for real. Looking forward to seeing more from him.
Really don’t want to overhype this movie, but calling it anything less than great would be pretty disingenuous. The few qualms I do have are generally minor and are as often as not no fault of the film itself [read: monarchies are stupid and tend to work in counterintuitive ways, but that part of the story was on the books long before the filmmakers got their hands on it, and it’s not like dumbass monarchic traditions aren’t true to life].…
The story is okay.
The intermittent narration is weird.
Channing Tatum is a bit of a distraction.
Demián Bichir is good.
Walton Goggins is very good.
Jennifer Jason Leigh and Samuel L. Jackson are close to great.
The photography is excellent.
The 70mm presentation is gorgeous.
But the true star of this show is Ennio Morricone's score. The score is fucking fantastic. Most everything else is just window dressing.
