This film is his least violent. The only violence is perpetrated against the villians, and no one else.

And you think a film where he gets to play in one of his favourite time periods of filmmaking is something he was pressured into making?

One of his stronger efforts, using film and tv history in a meaningful way that doesn't come off as indulgent, but even when he seems to do things for his own creative curiosity, he does so with beautiful execution (take the reshot scene of The Great Escape for instance).

I was off the QT bandwagon, electing to not see this is in theaters, but the rental was a delightful surprise. Great picture quality, naturally.

I don't know what happened to him. Selling out, maybe?? Maybe he was pressured to make a safe, non-violent movie??

Anyway, I can only hope we get the old QT back someday.
Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds or Django Unchained are non violent films?

Inglorious Basterd was o.k.

I really really liked Django.

Hateful 8 is just a bloody excellent film. And I do mean bloody.

Hollywood was just o.k. Its enjoyable, but a bit slow at times.

I think QT needs to make another western. He's pretty good at getting that western feel.
You tried Reservoir Dogs? that's arguably more focused than what came afterwards, more akin to Django and Hateful Eight rather than all the digressions you get afterwards into sub plots/characters.

Visually I do think he's clearly grown as a director down the years though to the point were Hollywood feels as much a visually led film as a dialog driven one. I wasn't that big a fan of Jackie Brown at the time but I think todays Tarantino could probably carry it off better for that reason.

In the theater it wasn't clicking with me but halfway through it got good and then ending was fantastic. Watching in back in 4K the other night, it's such a great movie.

I really think this is QT's Big Lebowski. There's just so much subtle humor and of course intentional humor going on. Leo and Brad are ridiculously good and entertaining. You really feel their friendship.

Not QT's best movie in my opinion but a solid 8/10 and in line with all of his other flicks.

Safe, non-violent?

Did you not see the last half-hour of this film?!

"Doing a Lebowski" does seem to have become fashionable with films like Inherent Vice and The Nice Guys but I wouldn't say this had the comedy caper element to it. I do think you could say it was picking up on the same kind of atmosphere though, Lebowski might have been set in the early 90's but the bowling alley was obviously very 60's influenced.

[Show spoiler]bashing the one girl's head onto literally everything within reach
is one of the most violent things QT's ever put on film. And

Anyone else found the UHD to be much dimmer than the BD?

A touch dimmer? For sure. Much dimmer? No. The tone mapping and/or ambient viewing conditions and/or pumped up SDR settings are what's making it seem drastically dimmer.

That's not the only violence either. It's much more mild, but Cliff punching the kid at the ranch, then the fight with Bruce Lee, qualify as violent (even if not over the top). Before the ending scenes, it was hardly a 'polite' film.

Kill Bill 2 wasn't what #1 was.

Some of the other films (Hateful 8 fer'instance) wasn't very violent until the end (much like this one), full of long, drawn out dramatic dialog.

Technical question here...sorry if its been answered in the previous 89 pages....so i got an lg ultra hd bluray playe, and an optiman uhd51a projestor which plays 4k no probs from pc

So when i play the UHD 4k disc of OUATIH, the menu displays in 2160, but as you play the film the resolution reverts to 1080? as inidcated by the projector in top left of screen...i'll try to upload a vid of it doin it,

The resolution on the 4k disc is far superior to the accompanying bluray disc, as have tried both, but both play through my projector in 1080....anyone help out?..is the uhd 4k disc just upscaled 1080 or true 4k

Last edited by bodinski; 01-26-2020 at 02:29 PM. Reason: Fixed: it was the cable...new 4k 60hz cable sorted it

Watched this last night. Saw it twice in theaters (digital and 35mm). 4K presentation is glorious. The film is a bon-a-fide classic. Incredibly re-watchable. Always noticing new little details.

I found it slightly dim on my set-up, but not a ton dimmer, but dimmer than other titles. Mind you, my lamp has faded notably too (close to 1600 hours on it). But since I am upgrading to a new JVC this fall, I am not replacing the lamp and will just have to boost the luminance slider on the 820 up an extra couple or few clicks as needed. I would be curious to revisit this title on a new JVC with the dynamic tone mapping although not a fair comparison with a new lamp.

I have two Sony 5000es projectors stacked outputs about 210 nits from the 16' wide screen. The film is not a bright film even in the daylight scenes DTM done with the Lumagen Pro processor.
