Boring story. Boring scenes. Boring characters. Boring dialogue. Superficially stitched collection of Tarantino imitating his past movie tricks that doesn’t amount to anything and doesn’t have any depth. Unless you’re enamored with these Hollywood personalities it doesn’t translate to any kind of effect. It actually feels like the director is making fun of them given Pacinos whole dialogue about the audience seeing the actor get beat up. Intentional inside joke among directors maybe. ( in The Gentlemen’s trailer they seem to be doing that to McConaughey and he’s completely oblivious to it when he reads that goofy monologue with his “serious” actor’s whisper ending with ‘there’s a message in there somewhere maybe you can explain it to me.’ Huh?!! And then they cut to Hugh Grant saying ‘oh he’s going for it isn’t he’).The clothes are great though. Trailers were so promising. This movie is the equivalent of Tarantino telling an uninformed viewer “I’m Quentin Tarantino baby, suck my dick” What’s with so many movies this season having great trailers and then being underwhelming.

As much as I'd like to see it, I'm not really into the ideas of extended cuts/alternate cuts. The Hateful Eight miniseries is an interesting way to experience the film, but the most "extended" thing about it is the consistent addition of opening and closing credits.
And yet, the theatrical cut of Kingdom of Heaven is awful from what I hear while the extended cut is seemingly a masterpiece.
