Swelter dir. Keith Parmer (2014) The plot of this gangster western makes precious little sense (presumably the heat drives everyone beyond reason) but the film retains a certain style. Tarantino fans dismiss it as a poor imitation… so it might suit those who find Tarantino himself overhyped.
Kingsman: The Secret Service dir. Matthew Vaughn (2015) Riffs on George S. Clinton’s Dr Evil theme and a darkly comedic in-church human pile-up underscore that Kingsman is Bond meets Tarantino, only uncrippled by self-importance. It’s a Boys’ Own wet dream, manna for those who liked to explode all their lemmings.
