The Great Movie Re-Watch
Samuel L. Jackson
The lives of two mob hitmen, a boxer, a gangster and his wife, and a pair of diner bandits intertwine in four tales of violence and redemption.
I have to be in a certain mood to watch a Quinten Tarantino movie and that mood rarely strikes. He loves to see people say the words he’s written and they’re often too much for me. I like a lot of them, but again, I have to be in the right mood. I wasn’t in the mood for Pulp Fiction. I kept putting off watching this and it was only my husband wanting to watch it that got me to sit down. It’s a fine movie, but definitely not one of my favorites.
Vince is a dick and I’m glad he gets what’s coming to him. Jules’s storyline is the one I like the most. Mia and Vince’s whole story is downright boring until the end. I just don’t like Butch’s story, but I couldn’t tell you why.
I think what bothers me the most is there really isn’t a single likable person in the movie and I need that to enjoy a film. I am definitely not a film snob lol. I can appreciate that it’s a well-told story and Tarantino has a clearly identifiable way of directing. This movie was just not for me and that’s okay.
