somehow i presume leonard lopate would not have conducted the interview the same way. the guest is talented and interesting but the interviewer is not. why did he reveal so much of the film? not necessary.

why do you media people have to give away 1/2 of what goes on in a movie just for a "story"? I know I could turn off the radio, but come on....

Can someone give a good explanation as to why Quentin Tarantino is considered an artist? His films appear to be nothing more than exercises in the joyful presentation of cruelty and sadism. How can these awful images be considered valuable in any way? Might he be something of an awful person himself?

It's the most absurd yet in Tarantino's prolific portfolio of motion picture mayhem and nonsense. Too silly to even contemplate much less comment on.

I'm so excited for this interview.
Mr. Waltz was a joy to watch- you couldn't help hating him! This film would not have been so much fun if he wasn't in it.
I can't wait to see it again.
