    Aren't personal items, such as purses, scanned via x-ray at airports? Even international airports?

    So wouldn't a purse departing from San Cabo be scanned, and wouldn't the money be found?

    I loved both films. I've never been attracted to Tarantino's films (Just hearing buzz about them, or seeing trailers, I've never been inspired to go out and watch them).

    But these films are unique. Samuel L. Jackson played great characters in both

    I was just wondering if anyone here has seen Django or is a fan of Tarantino? And what films specifically?

    I am going to watch Reservoir Dogs, and Inglourious Basterds next.
    Reservoir Dogs was great, Inglorious Basterds had great moments, but overall, I didnt' love it as much as Reservoir Dogs or Django.

    Tarantino is great, he seems to be more raw than your average director. He doesn't shy away from something that could be considered politically incorrect

    I agree.

    Yes.

    What do you think about the feasibility of laundering money through a purse at an airport? Seems unrealistic to me, especially from an international flight. That would be scanned at customs.

    You're probably right, but it is just a movie

    But the thing is, Tarantino's movies are so detailed. It's like Breaking Bad. They don't take shortcuts.

    So something with a major plot hole like this, bothers me a little.

    They could have at least showed a plan to evade customs or something, even if that part was a stretch. At least address it.

    From Dusk Til Dawn was good for the first half, but boring and predictable during the 2nd half.

    They did have a cool special effect, when Richie's hand had been shot, and they showed a hole in his hand. You could see a small hole right through it.

    I thought Tarantino was ok as an actor.

    Also, does every Tarantino movie have to have so much bad stuff going on, with violence and what not? It would be nice to see a good movie, but one that didn't have so much gore, violence, and in this case, sleaze. It's just a bit much, when it's every movie of his that I've seen.




    Question from another thread:

    Why Grindhouse? I'm sure it's ok, but I would choose a different Tarantino movie you haven't seen...Grindhouse was just kind of a side project he did, and not a 'full' Tarantino movie (You get the gruesome action/violence but not so much the plot/style of other Tarantino films).

    Ok, what movie should I see next?

    I've seen:


    * Reservoir Dogs
    * Pulp Fiction
    * Kill Bill, Volumes 1 and 2.
    * Inglorious Basterds.
    * Jackie Brown
    * From Dusk Til Dawn (actor)

    That's just his style. I don't think he's going to change

    I plan to, sometime this month. Do you have another older one I can rent/stream? Or is Django Unchained probably the last good one?

    I liked the directing style.

    Good plot too.

    I liked how it spent much of the movie setting up the plot, unlike other horror movies which spend most of the movie with the villain chasing others, with the innocents, with the innocents having some close escapes earlier in the movie.

    Other movies have a lot of chase-and-close-escapes, only to stall and have a final showdown at the end. They get predictable to me, because I know there's not going to be a great scene until the end. (Sometimes there still are, but usually they try to save the best for last).

    This wasn't structured like that, the plot was structured a little differently.

    Also, the title was a bit misleading. I thought a pet would be the villain, but it wasn't.
