  • Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film True Romance

    If you want a girl to like you, take her to see this movie. By the end, you'll be acting out the pie scene, you'll want to fall in love, you'll want to go on an adventure together... you'll want to be Clarence and Alabama. Easily one of the best romantic comedies of all-time

  • chanandre's rating of the film True Romance

    Waited a lifetime to see this one: boy was it worth it. And i watched it on film print > as always THE best way to experience a film. DCP? No thank you. Should one challenge the directing title as it is? I think it oughta be considered a co-directing title for this one - this screams Tarantino in every shot. I wanna meet a girl on a screening too: A nice and special one who'll love me till i die> yup i'm delusional;(

  • Gondo's rating of the film True Romance

    Scotts romanticism is the perfect counterpoint to Tarantinos juvenile (but honest in a way) pop-excesses. He releases the characters into a world of hope rather than letting them become just another pop-cultural myth as Tarantino had it in mind. Not everyone has to end like Elvis you know.

  • XESCIE's rating of the film True Romance

    "ME AND DENNIS [Hopper], when we were doing that scene in TRUE ROMANCE, it was hilarious. It really was — including shooting him. All that laughing was real. He was killing me. And all the guys around us — that was a very cracking-up day." - Christopher Walken

  • Curtis's rating of the film True Romance

    The way it is written, the main character is a cinematic-badass version of Tarantino himself. This movie has it all, great dialogue, movie references and Val Kilmer as Elvis Presley. And that's not even the best part...The scene with Hopper and Walken is one for the movie archives.

  • Vladislava Chubar's rating of the film True Romance

    Когда дело касается фильмов Квентина Тарантино (даже тех, что были сняты другими режиссерами) зритель заранее должен быть готов к карикатурным и утрированным персонажам, харизматичному злодею, которого и ненавидеть то сложно и, наконец, кровавой, жестокой, беспощадной бойне в кульминации. "Настоящая любовь" - прямое тому подтверждение. Динамичное, яркое и забавное кино идеально подойдет для вечера среды.

  • Cbarky99's rating of the film True Romance

    One interesting thing about this film, in its finished form, is that it's unmistakably and fundamentally a Quentin Tarantino film at the same time as it's unmistakably and fundamentally a Tony Scott film. At the same time, as a romantic fever dream for genre geeks with stand-in characters, it's interesting that the culture's moved from romantic fever dreams like this one to romantic fever dreams like Scott Pilgrim.
