Ignoring everything else, putting opinions aside for a minute, it has to be stated how outstanding the soundtrack is. - I don't necessarily mean "great" by that, but being truly different. Straight techno/house, almost constantly? (Not your regular excuse for an "electronic" score, which is almost always either the nth iteration of synthwave or just ambient stuff.) Techno. That's got to be a first for any big movie. Noteworthy.
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross, again.

Beware: despite the clown theme, this is an extraordinarily sad and painful film.
Victor Sjöström and Lon Chaney - what a match.

If you'd like to see A Quiet Place but not without the talking, shot WAY worse and with uncharismatic actors (plus a wasted Nic Cage) .. .. maybe you'd better just see AQP 2 or something.

This wanted to be a more grounded Inglourious Basterds x Kingsman so bad and was far from either. A historic spy action caper without much tension and only the mildest of chuckles.
Man, I have nothing against Guy Ritchie, but he needs to reduce his output by at least half and focus more.

What's with all the Uncharted Jungle Cruise Ape Planet Hollow Earth stuff in my Kaiju?
Thankfully less humans than in earlier recent MonsterVerse™ renditions, but still too much of their presence. A couple of pretty crazy fights in an otherwise nonsensical, plodding mega blockbuster.
Always cool to spoiler tho

What a marvelous ending!

Oh, and if the downvotes for gpace didn't already tell you: the movie has very little to do with Tarantino. It's very much on the dramatic side, "sense of place", more wise observations than pure comedy; fleshing out a few characters and telling us about the how of their lives, all that.

The difference between the two links posted by Ebbywebby and TreadwayNathan is much bigger than just frame speed. I came across both versions on the internet and about the whole first quarter of the movie differs. What happens in Ebby's rip at 18:00 is the beginning of Nathan's rip!
IMDb speaks of two alternate versions of 49 and 54 minutes length - might have something to do with censorship and/or restored sections.

The splendid cinematography is reason enough to watch Ridley Scott's debut film.

Something everyone wants to have seen at some point, although it's not great.
Funny how much this short resembles an annoying prank sketch of Youtube (the way the tramp looks straight into the panning shot), more than other 1910s contemporaries do in my eyes.

Not as bad as the negative hype makes it, completely disappointing unneeded superhero origin sleepfest nonetheless

Holy hell, that was ultra dark. The twisted and yet so amusing mind of a McDonagh at work, ladies and gentlemen.

What happened to Matthew Vaughn? This is kinda like Kingsman x Kick-Ass, only it sucks hard. The last half hour has a terrible scene after another and the movie just doesn't want to end.

btw, featuring Henry Cavill so prominently in the advertising - he's in the center of the poster, ffs - is almost criminal. What's his screentime, 5 minutes? Bryce Dallas Howard, on the other hand, is completely miscast as the lead. A shame wasting Bryan Cranston for this.

Starts out like dozens other crime noirs you have seen (with hard-boiled cops and crooks).
Suddenly becomes a film unlike any other noir you have seen.
Very enjoyable despite all the obvious flaws - Ray wanted some melodrama in this film very hard.

Unusual editing.
Would've made a very fitting episode for The Painted Bird (2019).
