So I tried watching Pulp Fiction today, the first Quentin Tarantino film I’ve ever watched.
Obviously he’s a well known director for supposedly stylistic and influential films, and I thought it was about time I try watching one of his films.
The thing is, I couldn’t get into Pulp Fiction. The first ten minutes were pretty cool maybe, but the thing is, the further it got, the more I thought, god damn I don’t care about any of these characters and their stories.
Got about halfway in before turning it off in boredom. Who knows if I’ll ever get around to finishing it. I guess his style is an acquired taste, so to speak.
So, not a good start, but his other films are on my list, just to see what the big deal about them all is.
Heard from my boyfriend that Quentin’s films are just over-glorified, saying that Death Proof was just so bad, Kill Bill being a pretty okay decent film, and Sin City being dull. I’d like to judge them for myself of course, but we share interests and he’s usually spot on with this kind of stuff.
At least I’ll go in with low expectations so there’s a chance I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
