After months of talking about it, I finally got H to watch Pulp Fiction. I thought she might not be a big fan of it, but it's still a movie everyone (over 18) should see. I think she was a little scared because of Resevior Dogs. What finally piqued her curiousity enough was her intrigue in seeing Kill Bill, which is starting tonight. She's pretty excited to see it, so it only made sense to see if she liked Pulp Fiction as well.
After watching it again, I had difficulty in describing why I like it, other than completely non-descriptive words like it's "fun" and "hip." It's a rather deep movie in some ways, but not like Mulholland Drive. It's a funny movie, but not like Princess Bride. It seems to be the jack of all trades, but master of none. Except maybe in its casting and acting. I do think it excels there. Perhaps we should have watched Jackie Brown before Pulp, because it's more likeable to the mass audience... It's a little like watered down Tarantino. Actually I might have to buy that one. It was highly enjoyable. I'm due for a DVD.... I've only bought Adaptation in about the last 6 months.
Kill Bill tonight. I'm psyched.
