Just saw it. People with autism need not reply.
It was 9/10.
First, yes there are many plot holes, however none of them really affect the intent of the film, so it's a bit silly to pick on them.
Second, yes, the dialogue isn't great. Nolan has a hard time getting his characters to stop speaking in exposition and technical jargon. However it was necessary, given the scope of the film. He needs to stop working with his brother and start working with a real humanistic writer (Linklater-esque).
Third, the score. It is fucking phenomonal but a tad loud. I struggled to hear some dialogue late in the film because of the volume.
Those are really the only flaws. And I'm very very willing to forgive them because it's an absolutely awe inspiring film.
The scope and ambition alone were enough to keep me interested for the almost 3 hr run time. Nolan really captured something here that not many films capture (2001 and Contact come to mind as ones that have) it was this feeling of grandness that I couldn't shake. The film felt bigger than most, it felt unpretentiously important.
Absolutely loved it and you should definitely go see it. Please for the love of god try to turn of the famous /tv/ autism for a few hours, because the faults you find by nitpicking plotholes or scientific accuracy are not what this film is about. You'll ruin for yourself what is a really brilliant piece of work.

Just back from watching it.
It was okay, too much hype imo. Personally I believe the main problem with this movie was the number of miss casts it had and how it felt like the entire story took place in lalaland, a place that didn't exist or ever will.
Anne Hathaway didn't belong in this movie, her jface did, her voice didn't, fake white person voice, we got plenty of them idiots here in hollywood, and they sound exactly like her, she partially ruined the movie, matt damon wasnt bad imo, i like how he acts, he played the coward role pretty well, reminds me from talented mr ripely.
Still totally overhyped, imo I think inception was a better movie. This film was just odd and strange and that's what makes it special, nothing more. Shouldnt get anything higher than a 8.3
THE HATEFUL EIGHT

Quentin Tarantino's new movie. The official cast and synopsis have just been released.
>A stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Kurt Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as "The Hangman," will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), a former Union soldier-turned-infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Walton Goggins), a Southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new sheriff.
>Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces: Bob (Démian Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Tim Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Michael Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Bruce Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, the eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all.
Also in the cast are Channing Tatum, James Parks, Dana Gourrier and Zoe Bell.
The movie comes out in 2015.
