    There's a bit of irony there that he threw a fit and "cancelled" it when the script leaked only for the film itself to leak before release.

    Weinstein looking for Oscar's to put on the posters, it's happened to him before.

    "Well just send out these screener discs to hundreds of people a month before release... What could possibly go wrong?... "

    No idea where else to put this but it's not worth a new thread.

    Just rewatched Natural Born Killers for the first time in 20 years. It's a shit movie. I like Tarantino and Oliver Stone but Stone was clearly phoning it in, relying on the strength of the script.

    I remember reading an interview with Tarantino in the 90's where he said he hated this movie and I thought he was just disgruntled by not being allowed to direct it.

    Now on rewatching, I wonder what a Tarantino version world have been like.

    Whatever your opinion of what Stone did with Tarantino's script, he definitely didn't 'phone it in' with NBK. He throws everything in but the kitchen sink. The mixed-media construction and incredibly elaborate soundtrack were groundbreaking.

    He made the director of photography run so hard into a door for a POV shot he broke his hand.

    The director's cut is brilliant.

    It's an interesting film. It's got some real problems, but all too often it is unfairly written off as "shit".

    Yeah, I'm not a big fan of it as a film but I can appreciate it in terms of some of the off the cuff things it tried to do and mixing of styles. Plus it's off it's tits.

    I think it is a shit film. It has some good bits and some innovative ideas, but itís not a good film, and RDJ is sooooooo bad I really struggle to watch the last act.

    I loved it when it first came out. I was pretty into stone at the time. I loved platoon and Wall Street, I really liked the doors and could... well... just about sit through JFK but NBK was so in your face it blew my 15 year old socks off when I saw it at the cinema. It was genuinely like nothing Iíd ever seen before.

    And the soundtrack is just fantastic. Reznor did a fabulous job of setting the mood and the CD is *so* well stitched together it stands up as a work on its own. I still give it a spin now and then.

    But, yeah, as with the doors, 30 something me watches it and kind of rolls his eyes at it. The most notable thing about it now is it probably marks the exact point people stopped giving a crap about Oliver stone. However, you can accuse him of a lot of things, but phoning it in isnít one of them. He went absolutely coke balls out on this one.

    I fucking love Nixon: I think it's Stone's best film by a mile, then Salvador probably. I can watch it on a loop, all three-and-a-half glorious, over-the-top, Wagnerian hours of it.

    But yeah, after Nixon it all goes a bit wobbly. And I don't know what Stone's on these days, cosying up to Putin whilst his son is an RT stooge.

    I love NBK. Shocked to read that some people don't dig it.

    For no particular reason, I associate it with True Romance - which *is* a shit film.

    I watched Platoon last night funnily enough. Itís kinda good but was a weird decision to so obviously reference Apocalypse Now, as it makes you keep thinking how itís just not even slightly close to being as good.

    True Romance is a great film.

    Of his Vietnam trilogy, I think Born on the Fourth of July holds up the best. It's a tour de force and a reminder of when Cruise actually acted rather than just did stunts.

    Heaven and Earth is well intentioned but I remember it being a bit mis-firey. That said, I haven't watched it since it came out so I should give it another go.

    Looking back on what Stone was doing when he had a proper wind in his sails, no one else was really making political blockbusters like he was, and pissing off as many people. You have to have a fair bit of respect for that. And stylistically he was pretty amazing, although I think he disappeared a bit too far up his own arse 'vertical editing' wise after NBK.

    I even like Alexander, for my sins.

    Yeah, that's horseshit imo. True Romance is fantastic. If nothing else, it gives you the genesis of Tony Soprano.

    Edit: what Tomo said

    True Romance probably my fave Tarantino (sort of) movie. I thought NBK was pretty bad though.

    True Romance contains the best scene Tarantino ever wrote. You know the one I mean.
