He didn't really do all that much to be terrible, and he was fun enough when he was on screen. The movie isn't anything special but it's a nice piece of summer entertainment. Better than the awful beyond belief Transformers 2.
And the new Where the Wild Things Are trailer is online and awesome.
I can't find the new trailer :(
...but I did find this:
worker bees can leave
even drones can fly away
the queen is their slave
i just came back from 500 days, i really liked it. it was humorous, but at the same time it was ******* depressing. i might have liked it more, because they used downtown LA, and made it a part of the film, also the references to the kind of music that i like.
i'm in love with zooey, but her character is very true to life, so it makes you hate her for a second or 2.
Reservoir Dogs is awesome, but Jackie Brown is better IMO.
Jackie Brown is a 5 yrs. later Tarantino ('97) vintage so it s/b better. JB is a polished thriller storyline with distinctly drawn characters brilliantly performed, while Reservoir Dogs is a raw ensemble cast crime story/whodunit from Tarantino when he was still young & right out of that LA video store.
The cohesion of the team in RD is more important than the individuals, & with no love among thieves, the stress between all those in the interplay between the ensemble after the robbery really makes it a compelling dramatic & worthwhile film, I've never heard anyone say anything negative about Jackie BrownRD is also a more performance-driven too, relatively young actors like Roth & Madsen at the time mixed with grizzled vets like Keitel made a great cast, you're just transfixed by these performances on a bare bones minimal stage. RD had a better hook too - --(SPOILER ALERT --> hook = who's the mole among the Dogs, & oh yeah there's torture scene set to pop music that is only topped by Bale/Patrick Bateman in American Psycho, maybe that's where they got the idea originally). It has a classic Temptations/Motown soundtrack too
Nobody writes better crime characters than Elmore Leonard, though Ellroy & Crumley came close among post-mod crime fictionalists IMO, the film Jackie Brown is so very razoredge close to Leonard's original text. It's well cast, Robert Forster & Pam Grier give career performances, & Sam L. Jackson established the role model for the badass lethal ************ character in Odell that he would do in a variation for Tarantino later in Pulp Fiction -- Odell is still nightmare-scary in his own right, one of the best stone killers ever done in filmdom. Hell yeah, it's one of my personal faves, I give it 4 stars ****. Rent it asap if you havent seen it.
