I recently saw 'The Hateful Eight'. I love the romantic idea of a brutal WY winter storm for a setting, but this movie could have been 45-60 minutes shorter and told the story better. Pretty standard Tarantino, but with too much meaningless fill. Some good performances though.

I think most Tarantino movies have too much filler. The one he got right more than others was Pulp Fiction. I think it was his best movie but the two he scripted but didn't direct : Reservoir Dogs and True Romance were also good.

Favorite movies:
Pulp Fiction
Jackie Brown
Django Unchained
Se7en
Shutter Island
The good, the bad and the ugly
Apocalypse now
True Romance
Fight Club
Taxi Driver

Looking forward to Scorsese's "The Irishman" and Tarantino's "Once upon a time in Hollywood" in 2019. Both with a great cast, but no idea what to expect.

Today we have to say goodbye to the legend Burt Reynolds, who died aged 82. Another legend gone :(

Mean Streets (1973) - I don't mind movies that seem to go nowhere (in terms of action and such), but this one I thought really went nowhere.

I don't mind foul language and violence if it's warranted, but I think this is where Scorsese and DeNiro were just beginning to experiment with how far they could take it. Their later movies were a lot more polished, methinks.

I still liked it. One of my favourite Scorsese movies, low budget and all. Great acting. I thought Casino was a bit underrated also. Preferred it to the Goodfellas even though the Goodfellas had some great scenes. Haven't liked Scorsese's later career output so much.
