Number of Times Seen – Too many to count (Theater, DVD and March 2013, 1 Sep 2014, 28 Nov 2018, 3 Jan 2021 and 15 Aug 2021)
Brief Synopsis – Anthology of three stories about LA gangsters as they deal with revenge and redemption.
My Take on it – This is the film that put Quentin Tarantino on the map.
He had made one film beforehand, but this was the first big one and his first Oscar nominated film.
The way that these characters interact is amazing and this helps make things feel so much more realistic the whole way through.
The dialogue is superb as always with Tarantino and he changed the way people will ever see a conversation about hamburgers.
The characters are each developed on a deep level and that adds so much to the way that things play out.
Tarantino’s non-linear story line also adds to things because it requires the viewer to pay even more attention to everything that transpires along the way.
The music is superb and enhances the atmosphere throughout.
The films cast tho is the clincher and it even the famous actors cast in small roles are able to help keep things so fascinating to watch as the story unfolds in unexpected directions.
Highly Highly Recommended!
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The 1964 Chevelle Malibu convertible driven by Vincent Vega (John Travolta) belonged to writer and director Quentin Tarantino, and was stolen during production of the film. In 2013, a police officer saw two kids stripping an older car. He arrested them, and while looking up the owner of the vehicle he found the VIN had been altered. It turned out that it was Tarantino’s stolen car. The owner had recently purchased it and had no idea it was stolen. (From IMDB)
Rating – Oscar Worthy (10/10) (no change from original review)
