Tarantino Never Fails To Amaze!

Advantages: Stylish Filmmaking, Top Acting, High Entertainment Value, Straight To The Point
Disadvantages: Predictable, Conveniently Placed Scenes

This film is hardly new and trending now, but seen as nobody has yet to cover this masterpiece on Ciao I thought I would give it a shot. So first thing's first, who is in it? Brad Pitt as Lt. Aldo Raine Mélanie Laurent as Shosanna Christoph Waltz ...

Zero Dark Thirty

Advantages: Thrilling, with a committed lead performance guiding us through the years of one hell of a manhunt
