I fucking loved this movie- it may well be my favorite Tarantino movie. It makes a delightful pairing with Inglourious Basterds, with both tackling atrocities and both featuring a sort of subtly refined maturation of his audacious style. I like where his filmmaking is at. The movie is hilarious, violent, moving, beautifully acted, unapologetic, dynamic, ostentatious without crossing into self-indulgent, and ultimately just a goddamned blast. I would have watched it again the moment the credits rolled without leaving my seat, and I can't wait to see it again.
I'm not going to say people who called chunks of it overlong or levied other criticisms are wrong- all I can say is that the movie broadcasted at exactly my wavelength and I was never not 100% fully on board. I ate up every frame, and haven't seen a more deliciously watchable movie this year.
Also, I think it's going to do very well. I only saw it with a small theater full of about half old/stuffy critics and other half public, and the thing played. A little clapping, a little laughing, but really it was just the energy in the room and the sense of shared exhilaration coming out.
