I'm still not sure what Turb meant by Tarantino's Spaghetti Westerns.
It's his first one.
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.
"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
Looks a bit hammy.
RE: After Earth.
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.
Forever 63* at the SCG
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.
Guess I'm gonna have to go see that film now.
Im aware he has been influenced by the genre but that wasn't what you said.
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.
