It is not good. It is bad. It has it's moments, but for the most part, I'd rather be watching my non-existent dog sleeping.

He didnt like it cuz Stone directed it in a way that made it a satire which wasnt what QT was going for.

yeah i know, and he didn't like the political aspect of.
obviously if tarantino had done it, it would be a different movie, but you gotta give it credit for what it is.....

I thought the directing(read: cinematography) was very irritatiting. The best scene was a scene of two people just talking while walking down a hall. That was the only time the power of QT script really came trough. The acting was good though and a couple of other scenes were good as well.

I enjoyed watching it and I think it is a great film, but I have only ever seen it once or twice. Although I liked it, its style, in my opinion, limits the amount of times one can watch it. Definitely worth seeing in my opinion, but I think it has limited rewatchability.

I agree, its a classic. Love the music, the way it was shot, everything. Would I have loved to see QT's version? Fuck yeah!

I liked the last half of the film and the opening scene but that's about it.

A Classic? Are you on drugs? It was fucking awful. Average at best.

Nice opinion but I still think its great. I know QT didnt like it, so what.

Drugs do make the whole movie rate a little 'higher' on the cool meter for sure.

I read QT's screenplay like 2 years ago and liked it, but a lot of people talk about how different they are, so I guess I've just never gotten around to watching it.
Besides, Oliver Stone is an overrated liberal piece of shit.

It was ok, nothing special at all...as Quentin told on the Opie and Anthony show, all the good stuff, the funny stuff, was his...sadly, most of it was totally different from the original script so there isn't that much "good stuff"

Shit. I don't see how anyone could not like this movie. I understand why QT is sore but for fucks sake! The whole cast turns in some of their best work. The way the movie was shot was very unique for its time. Im not sure I had seen CGI in a film before and I know Ive never seen it used in a good way since. I think I'll watch this one again tonight.

Saw it yesterday for the first time. The first scene (Juliette dancing) was wonderful but then the editing started getting on my nerves. I got used to it very quickly, though. And while the editing didn't always work to the fullest the cinematography was excellent. Maybe too many b/w shots but otherwise pure excellence. Sometimes kinda reminded me of what people like Hideaki Anno would do later with digital video (don't shoot me for that reference). Acting was terrific, especially Woody Harrelson was amazing.

It's a very well made movie. Quentin was just envious that he couldn't do a better job with True Romance so he hated on his awesome film for bullshit reasons.

I love this movie, it's one of my favorites now that i've watched once a year since 2003.

I hated NBK. I loved True Romance. I don't think QT's envious of Oliver Stone. I read somewhere that he was pissed because Stone fucked with his script making it difficult for the audience to sympathize with its central characters. Also, that the film was far more disturbing than QT's original intent. I do think the actors did a terrific job in NBK despite Oliver Stone.  QT didn't direct True Romance.

I know he didn't direct True Romance but he did write the film.
