I watch TWBB with the once and future Miss impy last night, our first time seeing it since the theater.

It's still one of my favorite movies ever, but now I laugh through the whole thing. That's okay though.

I picked up the 2-discer today, too. One of my 10 favorites now.

How did I miss this and the Snow Dogs jokes two days ago?

I'm getting rusty.
I love how both insults can reference Cuba Gooding Jr. movies.

I was considering the Boat Trip poster, but it just wasn't gay enough for my purposes.

Amazing, of course. There isn't really much more to say that hasn't been said. The script is sharp and generally hilarious, the cast is among the best ever assembled in a single film, and the storytelling is brilliant. Slowed down a bit for me during the Gold Watch segment, but came right back to life as soon as Jules and Vincent popped back on-screen.

"English, muthafuka! Do you speak it?"

9/10
9/10?



10/10 in my book.

I'm curious, why not a 10? what was missing IYO?

Depth? Substance?

Without trying to sound like a Tarantino apologist, the substance is the deconstruction of the crime genre, and the film being somewhat about cinema itself.

If you discount that, you have to do the same with a lot of Godard, Truffaut, and most of the New Wave, for starters.

Also, there is certainly an arc with the Jules character, and even if it sounds ridiculous, there's more than a hint of existentialism behind the whole thing.

I was joking. I'm a big fan of what QT does with his work, especially Kill Bill and its wuxiakungfuwesternanimebmoviegirlpowerpulplovefest appeal. I still don't buy the whole argument behind any greater character depth though. I'd argue that's all on the surface as requisite piece to the genre deconstruction.

You don't think there's depth with The Bride? Maybe you feel that whatever weight there is should be credited to the perfs of SLJ and/or Uma, but it's still there.

Oh, no, I was referring to Pulp Fiction with that. Should have worded better I suppose. I adore the Bride's character arc, which feels surprisingly genuine to me.

I know Sam Jackson has become kind of a caricature by this point, but I found him pretty powerful in Pulp Fiction. I wouldn't say he was moving, or anything like that, but he certainly sold the dilemma and conversion of his character, despite how funny most of his dialogue is and the references to Kung Fu.

"I'm tryin', Ringo. I'm tryin' real hard...to be the shepherd."

And that's what made his character in Jackie Brown disappointing by comparison.

I think I like Jackie better than the Kill Bills, but I've never watched Vol. 1 and 2 back-to-back before. That may change things.

Bruce Willis felt out-of-place to me. I felt it should have generally centered around the two hitmen rather than branching off into another separate storyline. That wouldn't really be an issue if I enjoyed that segment as much as the others, but it really slowed down for me there.

But everything else? Fucking brilliant.

I can't stand the cab ride and "oral pleasure" scenes, but love the rest of the segment. You can't not like the whole Gimp sequence and Walken's monologue. Plus, it has the balls to kill off the most featured character, Vince, half-way through the movie.

And you get to see someone get sliced by a kitana (sp?) sword. Shit son.

Oh, fuck. That's true. I completely forgot about Walken's part. Must have laughed for 10 seconds straight there.

Nevermind, it's a 9.5/10 now.

The delivery of it is pitch-perfect.

"...so he hid it, in the one place he knew he could hide something: his ass."

Then in the Gold Watch segment, Marcellus says my favorite non-Jules line of dialogue:

"I'm prepared to scour the the Earth for that motherfucker. If Butch goes to Indochina, I want a nigger waiting in a bowl of rice ready to pop a cap in his ass."
