When I first saw this film, I was deeply disappointed. Nothing seemed right about it, and the violence wasn't operatic or cinematic, the way it was in the Tarantino script, it was just,,, glorified. What I mean by that is, QT had it in his head what it would look like, and how it would be, and he would have done it so much more beautifully,,, but Stone just, negated it for the most part, aside from the opening sequence. I love Platoon, but I can't say I give a fuck about anything else Stone's ever done. He doesn't impress me in the slightest.
