I liked Django Unchained, except for one thing. I expected the movie to end , that felt like where the movie should have ended, and most probably would have in other films. Tarantino has this thing thing about screwing with the pace (right word?) of a movie it seems. Right when you think it's over and the credits are about to roll, another 30 minutes of film.
I didn't have that feeling, but I also didn't expect
. Then again, without the "added" stuff, we wouldn't have seen
. Although considering the length of the movie and how different it is, I can see why they didn't go a Kill Bill route with a two-parter...too much of a risk.
This should become more of discussion thread.
Aliens just felt like a standard action movie with an Alien skin. The plot is straightforward and the characters aside from the main ones were lame. Also people praise for blending horror and action, but the only thing that had horror was the atmosphere.
At the time, it was as different as you can get, but having a horror atmosphere is the point of calling it action horror flick? I'm not saying it's the best movie ever, but I think you're selling it a little short.
