12.06.05DVD Been a while since I've seen this and I thought that maybe now, since I've been introduced more to the kind of movies that QT himself favors, this would resonate more with me. No surprise that it does. very much so even. It's kind of like it makes so much more sense now after seeing a few real blaxploitation movies. I think with this and Kill Bill QT has made genre movies for genres that don't really exist anymore. They are A-list pictures in some wonky timewarp that belong to the cinema of 30 years ago... so the more you are familiar and like those genres, the more you appreciate these movies. The problem is that not a lot of people have seen them anymore... their loss though. I really really like this movie a whole lot better now than the last time I saw it
