Which would you watch first? Tough one.
First two were really good. Liked the Revenant better. Hail Caesar looks pretty cool and has a great cast. Have to get to it tomorrow.
Caesar, but only because I thought the Revenant was overrated, and I've heard nothing but disappointment from Tarantino fans about Hateful Eight.
Hail Caesar is the only one I have any interest in seeing in the theater.
Not sure of the run time of Hail Caesar but the others are close to three hours. That's legit Netflix limited series run time. Who the hell has time for that shit all at once?!?
I chose to watch The Revenant 1st, wish I would have picked Hateful 8. Was expecting more from The Revenant, but it let me down. Not a terrible movie, but doesn't meet all the hype. Hateful 8, you either like it or don't. I put it ahead of Revenant. The Clooney film? Who knows, Clooney is hit and miss. Probably wait for DVD rental on it.
I'll go 8, Revenant, Clooney/Cohen.
There was a really good preview on the Revenant for a Matthew McConaughey Civil War movie this summer - Free State of Jones. This looks like it has potential.
Anything The Brothers make is an automatic must-see here.
The Jezebel/Celebitchy-type sites are all ruffled feathers over the comments one of the Coens made during an interview (with GQ?) regarding diversity in movies. Apparently one of them said something like they don't write a movie thinking, "We'll have two whites and three blacks and an Asian and a martian and a dog..."
They're getting killed.
I loved "The Revenant" but they could've shaved 25 minutes off of it.
It's Jeremiah Johnson meets Hang'em High!
Curiously enough, I gave them all about the same rating - 6 or 7 out of ten. I don't think you'd go wrong seeing any of them, but neither would I put any one of them head and shoulders above the others. Hateful Eight had some compelling dialogue typical of a Tarantino movie, but also some plot holes that were hard to overlook. The Revenant, on the other hand, had significant stretches with almost no dialogue, but was beautifully shot. And Hail Caeser was pretty consistently entertaining throughout, but offered few true laugh out loud moments. So while I'd say it's in no danger of displacing any of the other movies at the top of the Coen brothers' 'best of' list, you'd nevertheless likely enjoy watching it. Brolin gave a strong performance I thought and I'm not normally his biggest fan.
I've seen The Revenant and Hateful Eight. But When I hadn't seen them, I wanted to see Eight first, but after watching both I like, Revenant better out of the two, but it's a very close call. I haven't seen Hail Caeser nor have I heard about it, so can't comment on that.
I'm done with Tarantino
It would be fascinating to see Tarantino direct something he didn't write himself at this point. Don't see it happening and not knocking the mans writing but all the same could be great.
If only we could witness an authentic, grassroots, anti-PC backlash arise within the ranks of the Hollywood celebutard set.
The internecine warfare resulting from that would be sublime beyond all measure.
The revenant was good. Not great. TH was really good tho. He deserves a nomination.
H8 is probably my least favorite Tarantino movie. To long and self indulgent.
Love the Coen bros. Their movies hit and miss but I'm a fan. I'll see Hail Ceaser
Seen The Revenant and Hateful 8. Would probably watch Revenant again before Hail Cesar.
Love the Coens, but this one looks to be along the lines of my least favorite Coen flicks, like Burn After Reading, Hudsucker Proxy etc.
I've seen both the Revenant and Hateful Eight. It's unlikely I'll ever watch either one again so I'll go with Caesar.
The face George Clooney makes when hes getting slap in the trailer cracks me up everytime
I would agree.
Acting was good but Revenant was basically a movie about getting justice.
Tired of Tarantino casting Blacks as heroes during a time period when it was basically impossible.
Caesar is probably your best bet but thats not saying much.
