My reaction
Synopsis: a few related stories revolve around an L.A. gangster
How I saw it: on video many times, most recently yesterday (rented from Netflix)
Concept: Indifferent.
Story: Great.
Characters: Great.
Dialog: Great. Oh, I’m sorry, did I break your concentration?
Pacing: Great.
Cinematography: Great.
Special effects/design: Great.
Acting: Indifferent. I will never forgive Tarantino for casting John Travolta in this movie. A decade and a half of crap movies are all your fault, Quentin.
Music: Great.
Subjective Rating: 8/10 (Great). It’s just so fun! Maybe that’s why I don’t like most gangster movies; they always want to be the next Godfather and don’t bother about being any fun.
Objective Rating: 3.6/4 (Great).
