Summary: An arms dealer, a flight attendant, a bale bondsman, and a couple of cops are all after drugs, guns, love, betrayal, and honesty. This is my least favorite movie from Quentin Tarantino, I mean the movie has some really good writing in it but the movie feels so slow.
Summary: Possibly my favorite director of all time, Quentin Tarantino adapts Elmore Leonards novel Rum Punch for the big screen. I haven't read Rum Punch but according to people who have this is a bloody good adaptation.
Excerpt: If you ever ask me what my least favorite Tarantino film is, my answer would have to be Jackie Brown. While still an interesting film, I find it to be the least enjoyable, because it doesn't have the same flair that his other features do.
Summary: This quirky film had a solid cast with some great acting, but that was the best thing going for it as storyline wise I was a little lost and even bored at times. I quite like Tarantino's films but this isn't one of them, and even though I can appreciate where he was going with this one and I'm sure...
Summary: Jackie Brown has all of the elements of a Tarantino movie and a little bit more. Jackie Brown starts out with the same calm effect of most Tarantino movies. Casting was perfect in all accounts. I really enjoyed Chris Tucker's cameo as Bomount.
Excerpt: Sterke film, duurt betrekkelijk lang maar dat merk je eigenlijk niet. Er zit een goed verhaal in met een mooie twist. Je moet alleen wel je aandacht er echt bij houden. Maar gelukkig kan je het via Videoland nog eens terugspoelen.
Excerpt: Goed in elkaar gezet en ook wel realistisch te bedenken op de manier hoe alles Pam Grier goed voor de wind gaat... Tot dat het misloopt. Verrassend is het ook dat ze Bridget Fonda, Samuel Jackson, Michael Keaton, Robert Forster en Robert de Niro samen hebben gestrikt voor deze film.
Excerpt: You gotta hand it to Q.T.: he follows the massively successful "Pulp Fiction" with "Jackie Brown," a slyly effective crime caper -- not some big, loud, stupid blockbuster...but a small-scaled, dialogue-driven piece -- ANOTHER masterpiece.
Excerpt: Ageing flight attendant Pam Grier is caught between the police and ruthless gun runner Samuel L. Jackson and enlists the help of bail bondsman Robert Forster to scam half a million dollars in the process.
