    I'm still not sure what Turb meant by Tarantino's Spaghetti Westerns.

    It's his first one.

    Well yes, his first official Spaghetti Western. But even then, Django isn't exactly one as they, in Tarantino's words, were a thing of their time.

    But what I meant to say was his attempts at (or style of) the genre, as both Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill had elements of a Spaghetti Western with countless references and tributes. Tarantino even described Pulp Fiction as a rock ’n’ roll Spaghetti Western. He's just put his own spin on it and created a genre of his own, which is what I was referring to.

    Django Unchained is a "Southern" anyway.

    Keen to see it, it's not so much the violence as the loaded dialogue that really shines out in his films.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Didn't Tarantino have something to do with Miike's Sukiyaki Western Django?

    Yeah, he played a role in it - Sukiyaki Western Django (1/10) Movie CLIP - Piringo's Story (2007) HD - YouTube

    The Dunwich Horror (2009 TV movie) aka Witches: The Darkest Evil.

    Admittedly I ended up watching it in fast-forward, but it seemed fairly abysmal. Glad I was paid to see it.

    Watched Jack Reacher last night. Much better than I thought it'd be, ignoring the plot holes and a couple of stupid scenes. Pike's breasts were the real stars of the movie though.
    RIP Craigos

    I'm not sure if I want to see that. I liked the one book in the series I read, but Tom Cruise? Really? That's horrible casting. Reacher's meant to be 6'5" FFS.

    Never read the book but I've read that they were considering Will Smith or Hugh Jackman for the role before settling on Cruise.

    I was mesmerized. I want a sequel based on her cleavage.

    Im aware he has been influenced by the genre but that wasn't what you said.

    Well I clarified what I meant, in my response to you. Plus I thought it was well implied, considering even Django isn't a true Spaghetti Western.

    On a separate note, watched Zero Dark Thirty. Historical accuracy and all the controversy aside, I liked it. Gripping right till the end. The entire raid sequence was shot extremely well. And a brilliant performance by Jessica Chastain.

    A clever tactic to distract the viewer for Tom Cruise being a short arse ****?

    Remember these?
