[quote=“Ordell Rodriguez”] [quote=“zeppelincheetah”]she loved it! I was surprised because the only other QT movie she really liked was Jackie Brown (though she’s never seen Pulp Fiction - doesn’t like John Travolta so It’s hard to convince her to see it). She said, like many others have said, that the actor that plays Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz) deserves an Oscar for his performance. She said that she liked this better than Kill Bill because it takes place in a real setting - WWII France… no matter that the story itself is fantasy. It’s just really surprising to me that she liked it so much because she usually just watches chick flicks. It was the third time I saw it btw.
Anyways have you brought your parents to see it? What did they think?[/quote]
Funny, when I went for the 3rd time on Tuesday I took my mom. She really dug it, although she had problems with the La Louisiana scene. Thought it went on too long.[/quote]
I was most worried about the violence. She really can’t stand to see it. But she got through it by turning her head at the goriest scenes. Actually I don’t really like the violence that much either. Like I’ve said in other topics I didn’t mind Kill Bill’s violence because it was over the top like a cartoon. In this movie the only violence I was cheering on was the slaughtering of the Nazis in the final act. The scalping and the beating with the baseball bat and the choke scene and the carving of the swastika at the end were a little much. I think it’s just as effective and sometimes even more effective if violence is implied rather than explicitly shown (like the shooting of the Dreyfus family at the beginning - all you see is bullet holes but it’s still shocking as hell). Having said that, it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the movie so much that I saw it thrice. ;D
