electric-celery asked: Seriously I watched it again the other night. SO BADASS
All of my friends complained about how it was just a bunch of girls talking for most of the movie.
My friends suck.
HA.. That’s a joke. Tarantino’s whole style is in his dialogue. Just because the movie has female leads it’s ‘just a bunch of girls talking’? Some of the best moments of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction are in dialogue. Agreed. Your friends suck.
Edit: Also, ARE YOU KIDDING ME. Ship’s Mast is the coolest thing done in ANY of his movies because Zoe DID THAT. SHE DID IT! That’s more intense than any of his other movies.
That movie was fucking genius. I mean, it was just a bunch of girls talking/drinking/hanging out for the majority, but I’m not complaining; the dialogue is written and acted so well that it’s impossible not to empathize with them. Then he shows the first group get brutally murdered, switches to the second group of characters, and the masts-head sequence becomes that much more tense because you genuinely don’t know if Zoe’s gonna make it. He pretty much threw out the normal narrative structure of movies for that reason, and it worked perfectly. Just not on my friends, because they suck.
Plus, EVERYTHING WAS DONE FOR REAL WITH REAL CARS. NO CGI BULLSHIT. SO RAD.
