    Michael, couldn’t agree with you more about the dialogue that QT writes which leads me off on a “True Romance” tangent. I caught this movie on cable years ago thinking the title would be some silly Hollywood teen flick ala John Hughes. Ten minutes into it, I’m blown away with the discussion Christian Slater has with Patty Arquete about you know what to Elvis. The movie had Tarantino style all over it. Am I too far off base by suggesting Tony Scott made an authentic QT film. I always suggest TR as a QT film to friends.

    Loved the review, spot on. One other Swingers/Reservoir Dogs nod that also came to mind is the poker table dialogue in Swingers where they are talking about Casino. It’s very much like the table dialogue in Reservoir Dogs.

    “…you gotta be nuts to shoot in a casino” and in Swingers, they do. Classic.

    Say, has RRR moved someplace else and I missed the announcement? If not, I and my podcast client will wait patiently for RRR to begin again. Hope you’re having a great summer.

    Lisa,

    Thanks for the comment. RRR hasn’t gone anywhere. It has just been the combination of Summer and a new startup I am involved in with Doug Kaye of IT Conversations. It is my hope to get some time over the next week to sit down, relax with a film and then podcast about it. :)

    Thanks again.

    Disappointed that you didn’t mention the controversy around this film. Tarantino apparently ripped this off directly from City on Fire by Ringo Lam (see http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0093435). The ear scene is also lifted from Django.

    Will be one of the two movies the wife and I watch tonight. Hopefully have my own review to share later.
