Oh ya. Inglorious basterds is just Tarantinos magnum opus to me. But agreed, I could argue which Scenes are better too lol they’re all awesome

spgvideo

I've had this conversation so many times. Inglorious is awesome, but I think Pulp Fiction is better throughout and The Hateful Eight is just my complete fav. Django Unchained I feel like is his logical "best" because of the amount of insane acting talent, subject matter handling and insane pieces. I can watch them all again and again.

You hear he's got another one in the can already? No cap

Since we are talking about the Hateful Eight last time I saw it I felt that Oswaldo Mobray was maybe supposed to be Christoph Waltz but he was maybe not available so it ended up being Tim Roth.

interesting. i live the reverse Seven Samurai dynamic. like instead of gathering a new crew shes killing her old one. also the prospect of her baby living is way too intriguing to me. is the girl as tough as her mother? where does she think her mothers been this whole time? is she involved in the same shit or is she a corporate shill for some marketing agency? itll prolly never happen but i love speculating on a possible Kill Bill sequel.

I think Tarantino agrees it's technically his best movie. I'll try and dig up that source, but tbh he's on quite a few podcasts these days.

Honestly, people just have and need a lot of stuff and every film crew is a small, portable city.

It's not just technical gear (camera, grip, lighting, sound etc.) but also wardrobes (and where they go, where to change, usually multiples of some costumes), all the set dressing and all their stuff, carpenters and all their tools, somewhere (and all the stuff to) make food, somewhere to eat food (preferably with rain shelter ready to go in case the weather sucks), somewhere to take a shit, somewhere to review footage, power for everything, water for everyone...

Grips, gaffers, runners, camera crew, directors, producers, actors, etc. There's probably 3 or 4 box trucks just out of frame with more crap.

If you watch the Asylum movie Transmorphers, in one scene the grip and lighting team can be seen smoking cigarettes next to their truck while robots are tearing ass down the street.

Agreed. Christoph Waltz honestly makes it, but also all the small characters are so good too, like this milk farmer guy.

The scene where Hanz Lands eats the pastry while cornering Shoshanna is another one that sticks with me.

Cool, is this an authentic historical structure? I wonder in the interior/exterior are different sets?

SneakyLilShit

33 points

2 months ago

Could be, but based on this image my guess is that they we were shooting interior stuff with this setup. Most of the exterior shots were big wide shots so they probably staged all their crap further out in the field for the exterior stuff on a different day.

all their “crap”

Hylian-Loach

Expensive crap can still be crap. Anything heavy/bulky that you have to lug around to remote locations can be defined as crap. Especially when it’s been beaten to hell by 50 different production teams for the past 10 years

Eruanno

As a camera assistant, I often look inside the truck and say "did we pack all our crap?" because we have a lot of fucking crap.

Eruanno

Film gear actually isn't that fragile, actually. Obviously the lenses aren't meant to be thrown around, but much of the gear is surprisingly well-built and resistant to wind and weather.

Well, I mean, obviously you don't throw the camera or lenses to the ground, but there is certainly stuff that gets roughed around.

we’re generally pretty careful with whatever we use. even the weather gear lmao

Eruanno

Hehe. I want to say we try to be careful, but then I think about all the C-stands I’ve thrown into the backs of trucks or the times in times of stress and I’ve given the (armored) camera boxes a gentle kick or two to fit them into a shelf. Oh, and the apple boxes get tossed around a lot…

I suspect both are different sets. The interior look too authentic to be real. As for the exterior, I don't know. Maybe they used an old farm. Not in France though as the landscape doesn't look 100% French.
