Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (Theater, DVD and March 2013)
Brief Synopsis – 4 interwoven crime stories related to 2 hitmen in modern day LA
My Take on it – I remember seeing this in the theater in while visiting in NYC in the winter of 1994. I had already seen Reservoir Dogs (1992) and True Romance (1993) and was excited to see this one on the big screen.
With this movie, Tarantino once again proved that he has the talent needed to make an interesting and compelling movie. His story-lines are always peppered by real-life conversations about inane things between the characters. This actually makes it more believable to us as the viewer to believe that the characters are real and not just imagined by the writer.
Due to him only having two previous successes, its amazing how many notable actors appear in this movie. John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Harvey Keitel, Uma Thurman, Tim Roth, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette and Christopher Walken.
He also has a knack for writing overlapping stories that meet numerous times throughout the span of the movie, not necessarily in chronological order.
Bottom Line – Tarantino is at his best, both in terms of storyline and dialogue. Go see it!! Highly recommended
Rating – Oscar Worthy
