Another year, another best and worst list to report. I have to clearly state that, the highlight of my career and choice to be a film critic and blogger for film, truly resonates from this list and the constant praise and happiness I provide viewers, friends, family and strangers with comments and the thanks for allowing them the opportunity of making aware such films that express so many emotions. Night Film Reviews is dedicated to the big, small and almost completely unknown films that fill your days with love, happiness, sadness and all the wonderful emotions in-between.
Watching a Tarantino film is a cinematic experience, better yet, a right of movie-passage; an experience that may not be as recognizable or appreciated now by the vast majority, but can surely be pointed out and appreciated by a fine few who can find similarities and influences with some of the last great auteurs and great directors of the past. And yet, like his films, Tarantino intended to present his sly and ultra-violent eighth film in the most roadshow way possible; with an overture, intermission and in 70mm no less. Maybe your wondering, after eight films, has Tarantino out done himself, especially after the exceptional critical and commercial praise of Django Unchained, for which he won an Academy Award in the Original Screenplay category? The answer my friends is, as Samuel L. Jackson so coyly says within the first lines of the film, “Got room for one more?”, cause Tarantino ain’t going anywhere yet!
