I've been so addicted to Malcolm in the Middle these days that I've been delaying some punk-ass movies that I've been wanting to see for ages. Maybe I'll rewatch it with subtitles, one of these days, but I liked it. There's no cool-action like Tarantino's action. To be fair, not as strong or solid as Pulp Fiction, but very enternaining in a way that Pulp doesn't seem to be.
Tarantino's dialogue is often annoying as fuck. Even for comedy, his (often sexualized) rants are the asshole/alpha cliche, the rest a rambling geek that dorks about the trivial and monotonous details of something... two types of males I hate. His exchanges sound like he isn't around actual people much. I've talked to this type before and wished they were born with a vagina for real convo. Much like Tarantino.
Perhaps with more scenes like the "stuck in the middle" ear cutting part, where great cinema was shot, I wouldn't flinch in adoring this movie more. Though it is clear from the start that a style is present, and the script is fresh, and clever, the same i couldn't say for the film-making . He obviously knew what he was doing, but in one way or another e kept reserved. Overall a satisfying viewing experience.
A great debut film! Tarantino masterfully makes statements about his filmmaking experience and professionalism in an iconic opening scene. He presents to us a non-gratuitous blood bath that captures our attentions and never lets go. The only falter was that I didn't feel connected to/focused on a single character and because of this I couldn't invest myself fully and feel those deeper emotions. Still a fun ride. 7/10
Quentin Tarantino's debut movie sets the tone for his pop-culture style with a discussion on the meaning of Madonna's song "Like a Virgin". The movie that tell about the aftermath of a failed heist and the slow reveal of what happened in between make this the perfect ensemble film. And what would this film be without the music, Michael Madsen dancing and the Mexican standoff at the end.
A film that has always been on my watchlist and have only just got round to watching. I'm sure at the time of release I would have liked it more, just now it reminds me of what every boy in film school wants to make. Relies too much on dialogue, so not a fan personally but brilliantly crafted and some iconic scenes.
