I was looking at Shame in the store not a week ago. But I hadn't seen it or heard anything about it so I put it down. I may have to give it s shot.
Jackie Brown (first viewing)I've see this normally is contender for QT's worst flick (it competing against Death Proof on most lists)But I don't hate it, I had NO idea what the film was about or who was in it when I got it. It is a lot different to all the other QT films I've seen though. I think it's weakest point is the dialogue, which there is pretty much nothing but for 2 hours until shit happens the last 30 or so minutes. Which isn't a bad thing but it just didn't seem up with the dialogue in QTs first two films. Whether this being based on a novel had restrictions on him or what, I don't know. However it's still handled pretty fucking good, and the characters are all good (and well acted). I think I'll have to watch it gain to fully appreciate it, now that I know what I'm in for.
I really liked this too. The original is amazing but this I hold as a different story of the same subject...if you know what I mean. : )Alexander Skarsgard is awesome in any role he plays.
