tarantino movies

We went shopping yesterday at a giant mall about a half hour away. We always end up getting more than we can comfortably fit in the car (No, I don’t own an SUV – I actually have some concern about my fellow human beings on this planet), which makes the trip back an adventure.

Anyway, we found some good buys on a couple of DVDs. I got Reservoir Dogs and my wife got Moulin Rouge! They were 10 bucks each. Our friend was with us, and she mentioned that she had Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Volume 1 (see my Recent Films on the right. Long story short, she loaned us her copy, and we saw it last night. What a wonderful piece of cinema. Highly stylized with nods to a number of genres and filmmakers. Over the top as far as blood is concerned, but it’s so obviously stylized, that it’s plain it is not real. I’m looking forward to the sequel which has just been released to theaters (Kill Bill Volume 2).

After watching it, I figured it would be nice to get Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. I’d have a nice collection of some cool movies.

  1. Although I don’t particularly like violent films, I must admit I loved Pulp Fiction. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to see Kill Bill but you’re starting to change my mind. And $10 for DVDs? I wish they were as cheap here in the UK!

  2. Well, as I said, there is a lot of blood in Kill Bill. Much more than in Pulp Fiction. The violence is highly stylized (I wish I could think of another way to describe it).

    $10 is pretty low here too. Mostly you find junk in that price range. We just lucked out.

    If you do see it, I’d like to know your opinion.
