Tarantino seems to be making longer and longer films. Or is it just me?

According to Wikipedia:

Reservoir Dogs = 99 Minutes
Pulp Fiction = 154 Minutes
Jackie Brown = 154 Minutes
Kill Bill = 247 Minutes (He made them with the intention of them being one movie, it was the production company that split them into two, because who can sit through a four hour movie?)
Inglorious Basterds = 152 Minutes
Django Unchained = 164 Minutes
Hateful Eight = 167 Minutes or 187 Minutes

So yeah, I guess in general he's been getting longer and longer, but he's clearly always been pretty okay with making 3 hour films. I'm actually really surprised how close three of his films are in terms of timing.

In a Colbert interview recently, he said how he wanted Hateful Eight to be like those older movies where there's an intermission. It was made to be watched without annoying previews or commercials before the show. Back in the day there'd be films like Lawrence of Arabia or Grand Prix where going to the movies was a lot like seeing a play.

Maybe, he gets a fee according to a quantity of the minutes of screen time?

I was watching last year's movie, Goosebumps, this afternoon but I wasn't able to finish it.
I think it's interesting and the plot is unique.

I just watched The Cobbler yesterday. It's an alright movie, but I was hoping for better since Adam Sandler is in it.

I enjoy SPECTRE more than Skyfall and I know that's an unpopular opinion so you can get the fuck out of my face about it.
