    The trailer is amazing. Sitting there in the amazing Dolby Theater at AMC opening weekend, even as the credits roll, I couldn't pin why this movie didn't rock for me. The couple next to me walked out about an hour in.
    It's not an awful movie. But for some reason, it didn't connect. Packed house and there should have been hootin' and hollering and laughter throughout but - nothing.

    Believe it or not, I was expecting something very icky and amateurish. Amateurish it is not. Abel Ferrera delivers even when he has no money. Definitely a film worth visiting or re-watching in the post #metoo era.

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    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.
