GREAT movie. Hilarious and sad, killer dialog, insanely beautiful shots of the West.

I usually like the Coen Brothers and this one was meh for me.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.

James Franco’s line, “First time?” was priceless.

The wife and I caught it a month or so ago...enjoyed it immensely. Dark, beautifully filmed.

I as so pissed it was in the trailer. Best line in the movie, Franco was really good.

Definitely not what I expected but enjoyable. Really liked Tom Waits. They could've left off the last segment and I wouldn't have minded. Gonna try to work "pan shot" into daily use.

I loved it, although the bit with Liam Neeson was a bit darker than my usual taste. I sent my son upstairs before that particular scene ended.

I spend very little time thinking about movies I've seen but this was an exception. Every story was engaging in its own odd or disturbing way and, as you say, the shots of the west were wonderful.

I can't say that I enjoyed it but I found it uniquely (weirdly?) compelling and beautiful to look at.

I watched it pretty much the same day it appeared on Netflix. Loved it. The ending was unexpectedly good.
