The Walk with Darkness
Aug. 2, 2009, 11:18 p.m. CST
Promenade across the floor. Sashay right on out the door. Out the door and into the glade and everybody promenade. Step right up you're doing fine. I'll pull your beard you'll pull mine. Yank it again like you did before. Break it up with a tug of war. Now into the brook and fish for the trout. Dive right in and splash about. Trout! Trout! Pretty little trout! One more splash and come right out. Shake like a hound-dog. Shake again. Wallow around in the old pig pen. Wallow some more. Y'all know how. Roll around like an old fat sow. Alamand left with your right hand. Follow through with a great left band. Now lead your partner the dirty old thing. Follow through with an elbow swing. Grab a fence post. Hold it tight. Womp your partner with all your might. Hit him in the shin. Hit him in the head. Hit him again. The critter ain't dead. Womp him low and womp him high. Stick your finger in his eye. Pretty little ring. Pretty little sound. Bang your heads against the ground. Promenade all around the room. Promenade like a bride and groom. Open up the door and step right in. Close the door and into a spin. Whirl! Whirl! Twist and twirl! Jump all around like a flying squirrel. Now don't you fuss and don't you swear. Just come right out and form a square. Now right hand over and left hand under. Both join hands and run like thunder. Over the hill and over the dale. Duck your head and lift your tail. Don't you stray and don't you roam. Turn to your partner. Promenade home. Corn in the cornfield. Wheat in the sack. Turn to your partner. Promenade back. And now you're home. Bow to your partner. Bow to the gent across the hall. And that is all!

I mean if a self proclaimed QT fanboy like latrine doesn't think its very good, people who have upset by QT's rather average output lately are gonna be shitting bricks. And the WEINSTEIN pigs are hoping this movie will save their falling studio. Fat fucking chance. QT's gonna have to start listening to a professional editor sooner or later because the man can't self edit his work for shit.

great writeup, as always.<p>I'm assuming you have The Limey on DVD. have you watched it with the commentary with him and the screenwriter? it's fucking HILARIOUS. Soderbergh loves to do commentary tracks with screenwriters so they can talk about how they rewrite, dice up scenes, redo certain plot elements, etc. (Scott Frank especially) but in this one, the screenwriter clearly wrote a straight forward a-b-c narrative, and Soderbergh turned it into a weird non-chronological film with a music video ad for Peter Fonda in the middle. and the dude is not all that happy with it.<p>one of the best commentaries EVER. if you haven't seen it, watch it ASAP.<p>and if you have, well, let this comment serve as an enticement to you all to get at this.<p> oh, and "The two different stories being told don't mesh satisfactorily, and I felt like I was being a bit short-changed on both. On the other hand, I had a great time watching it[...]" that describes EVERY Tarantino experience for me, except sometimes it's more than two stores, and sometimes, well, it's only one, and I still feel shortchanged.<p>I'm still waiting for him to direct someone else's script. (I'd even see [shudder] a Shyamalan movie, if he directed someone else's script. and I've been off that asshat, since The Village bent me over for my $9...)

And it's great. However, I can't help feel that Brad Pitt is miscast as Lt. Aldo Raine. That Tennessee accent just isn't in his Mizzou range. Which is why I'm totally on board with the fact that BASTERDS is really the effortlessly sexy Melanie Laurent's story. IB is the story of a young, French maiden's terrible revenge on the Nazi pigs who murdered her family. And it's as sweet as a French pastry. Ultimately, Basterds is really about the Mythology of Cinema, and how that Mythos can seduce you into believing something that truly isn't. Minor Spoiler here... In the penultimate moment of the film, Laurent's Shosanna Dreyfuss, the film's heroine, stares at the cinematic image of a bloodthirsy german soldier, seeing, for the first time, a vulnerability and a compassion in him she hadn't seen before... and pays the price for it. I found Inglourious Basterds to be a refreshing trek down memory lane for Quentin. He's back to his JACKIE BROWN/KILL BILL form, imo. Go see this movie.

I dont get the criticism of the Tavern Scene, it was easily the most exciting part of the film on page to me, just chock full of suspense. I find it hard to believe he dropped the ball on screen.

...really diggin on your coverage, dude. <P> Keep it up.

I'd sooner see an introduction... hell, ANYTHING, with Sally Sparrow than QT. <P> Lost QT a long time ago, but Mulligan keeps on getting better. (And prettier.)

The first 45 minutes were fairly disappointing. The gore that resulted after that point however was tremendous. Still each their own...

Did not deliver for this gorehound.

this movie didn't know which direction it wanted to take. The comedic bits of Shaun of the dead or the more serious stuff like the DoTD remake. as a result it ended up like House of the dead ...<p>Just not as bad. I'll stick to the Zombie reality TV spoof Dead Set instead.

'What the fuck happened to you man? Your ass used to be beautiful.'<p> Even an ultimate self-proclaimed QT fanboy writing here can't muster up much more than a 'meh' for BASTERDS. Fuck this movie is going down like a lead balloon.<p> Where's your review H? Are you abstaining so you don't have to lie for your mate Quentin by saying it rocks?

Industry Killer -- the Tavern scene is great! Filmed nearly verbatim from the script. The suspense, and even the funny parts are intact (except for the spontaneous spit takes). VERY MINOR SPOILER... I was just sad to see Mathilda get the hot lead treatment. What a shame.

fuck off and stop repeating what was said at the last miff.

... yeah, it isn't original, but it was a TON of fun, and the moment with the flame-lit bottle? . . . . PURE EXCELLENCE. I was laughing my ass off and had a great time. If that's from something else, somebody let me know, cause I'll go watch it!
Aug. 3, 2009, 5:38 p.m. CST
is bad, plain bad. Said that, it certainly has this "trashy" appeal that earns cult following.

Regarding Dead Snow: As I said, I'm definitely in the minority. Hell, some of my closest friends were there with me and loved the hell out of it, and I haven't disowned them (yet). From what I can tell, most people will dig it -- take that as an extremely reluctant recommendation. <BR> <BR> BadMrWonka: I have indeed watched The Limey multiple times, and the commentary track is hilarious! It's been a few years since I listened to it, but I remember the commentary being very funny, particularly when they're arguing over the number of photos on the wall in Peter Fonda's apartment. Fun fact: I have a large, framed Limey one-sheet adorning the entrance to my house! <BR><BR> IndustryKiller: I was talking to a friend about it last night, trying to figure out why I had a problem with that scene. I had no fault with the writing, the excellent direction, the acting... it was all brilliant, and the scene itself didn't need to be shorter. My problem was that there were far too many extended scenes in this film, and they overbalanced the thing. That said, I'm starting to think that the very long opening sequence is the best thing QT has ever made. <BR><BR> holden_oz: Cheers, mate!

with the one out of place bar...I loved that. had a roommate in college who is now a graphic designer/artist and he said it was one of the best movie posters of all time.

its chocked full of inventive kills to go along with the Evil Dead nods...people enjoyed it and laughed because IT WAS GOOD. You sound like a fuckin dickwad snob Latauro..
