Courtlin’s Resolution Movie List — Week 35
I'm a few days late, but since I was on vacation this past weekend, I gave myself an extension! Last night I watched another movie from my list, and I went for a Quentin Tarantino favorite.
Let me start by saying that I just love Quentin Tarantino movies so much. He has such an interesting style when it comes to his films. The way that the story is arranged in Reservoir Dogs is really cool. Nothing is in order, which was a little confusing at first, but once you catch on it all starts to come together. It really makes you pay attention. Another staple that I've noticed in every Tarantino movie that I've watched is the random conversations exchanged between characters. The whole beginning of this movie is just a bunch of guys sitting around drinking coffee and talking about the strangest things. For example, the Madonna "Like a Virgin" debate. That had me cracking up! And when Mr. Pink was talking about how he doesn't tip. Those conversations seem pretty pointless at first, but it really lets you get to know the characters in a different way. Very cool.
Like pretty much every other Quentin Tarantino movie, this one was incredibly brutal. When Mr. Blonde was torturing that police officer and cut off his ear?! I couldn't even watch. And don't even get me started on the ending! I was blown away! I won't give anything away in case you haven't seen it, for whatever reason, but it's a pretty "WHAT THE HECK?" ending.
I have a couple possible movies to watch this weekend, but if you have a good suggestion, leave it for me in the comments!
