With me there's no wah, I just simply don't enjoy violence in movies, or in general. Don't watch violent movies, any form of fighting (watched Ali when I was young, nothing else). Not a Tarantino fan, just not my taste.
To each their own.
Yeah, I would rather not hang with such shocking images, but it is a business, and sensational images sells tickets.
some of the modern effects are so realistic and stunning, I just look away. Worked for me as a kid, why change something that works? They expand to full screen stuff that is invisible in real life, because of the images that are now possible. Bullets entering and exiting the body in great detail comes to mind.
Macbeth is not all cotton candy either, it obviously depends on who tells the tale.
I think some of the criticisms here do a disservice to Tarantino's work.
There are complaints about the shallowness of so much predictable amounts of violence yet never explore the intent of why the movie was constructed in such a way. It is not as though he has limited skills, and movies selling sensational violence are all he can manage. just look at the variety of the movies made, modern crime, western, army all kinds of settings, all pulled off well
I guess the guy will never make a space movie though. With all that violence, and realistic space suits, it would be a very short film.
As Tarantino himself said in a very telling quote, that finding new expression was tough for him, since his first movie where he had enough creative control to say everything he wanted to say in a film, Pulp Fiction, was so well excepted by the public .
He figured it such a temporary industry, that with his first big shot, he threw in everything he wanted to say in that movie.
I guess that explains the hateful eight. That is a lot of money to leave on the table if that film doesn't get made, and it certainly doesn't pretend to be more than the od war movies it apes.
