You're So Kool
You know,Quentin sold this script for 50grand to make Reservoir Dogs

it.Then by sheer happenstance they get some of the best actors of the
day and those yet to rise.Throw all that together and what do you
We got Patricia,a beautiful,young..whore.Slater,a take no crap comic
jock who gets her as a birthday present.Oldman as white pimp who thinks
he's black.Sam Jackson as a drug dealer.Hopper as his alcholoic
father.Walken as a Sicilian gangster(Tony Sopranno at 28 in his first
flick as one of his goons).Saul,as a coked out director.Valki as his
assistant,and Pitt in his first movie as Floyd.Oh yes,and a suitcase
full of cocaine.Need i say more?I will.
Also,out of all motion picture history one of the coolest conversations
to ever occur was in this one between Christopher&Dennis,what a way to
go.Dennis with the whole,well i'm gonna die anyway,let's see just how
bad i can insult this guy and his entire race before he'll kill
me.Answer=Pretty bad,but oh so classic.And if that's a fact tell me,am

Tries a bit too hard but is still enjoyable
When Clarence meets Alabama they hit if off immediately and fall in love.
when she reveals she is a call girl hired to get him laid on his birthday
doesn't matter, and they get married. Clarence decides to make Alabama's
break from the job official by collecting her stuff from her pimp.
when that meeting turns into a bloodbath he mistakenly picks up a suitcase
full of drugs. The pair say their goodbyes and make off with the drugs to
sell them in LA, however the drugs leave a track behind them, one that
the mob and the police follow.
In the height of Tarantino fever, several of his scripts got quickly
off and handed to big name directors in an effort to capitalise on the
public flavour for his dialogue and mix of pop culture references and
violence. True Romance was one such film and, in fairness it does fairly
well to emulate the films of the writer himself - big cast, snappy
violent shoot outs and so on. In fact the film lifts his style to the
extent that it even rips off (or homage's) other films - most notably in
theme music that is almost a photocopy of Badlands.
The film wears this a little too obviously and clearly is trying very hard
to be Tarantino-esque, most of the time it works out but at times I just
wanted it to relax a little bit. The plot is pure geek wish fulfilment
mixed with crime thriller; a beautiful woman picks up a comic-book fan in
cinema showing a martial arts triple bill! It works reasonably well by
filling the scenes with colourful characters, pop culture dialogue and
violence - at times it gets a bit much and I wanted characters to talk
normally without a wall-to-wall soundtrack just some of the time; however
does have some very good scenes at times. Stand outs are the scene with
Walken and Hopper and the scene where Alabama takes a beating, but, if you
like Tarantino's films then you should be happy with most of
The style of the film is a little uneven. As I said, it is really trying
hard to be a Tarantino film but at the same time you can see Scott's
action-movie hands all over it! The two don't really fit together all the
time and would honestly rather have had a different director at the helm.
The cast however is as deep as Tarantino films were drawing at the time -
everyone wanted the chance to be cool! Slater is cool and fits the role
well and even Arquette manages to be quite good, although her narration is
about as flat and dull as they come. It is the support cast though, who
film belongs to. The film has roles for a variety of people whether it be
non-speaking roles or one or two scenes. In a way this is a bad thing
because some great actors have nothing to do and are wasted but overall
effect is good and each cameo makes an impact. When a cast includes Val
Kilmer, Dennis Hopper, Gary Oldman, Brad Pitt, Christopher Walken, Bronson
Pinchot, Samuel L Jackson, Victor Argo, Michael Rapaport, Saul Rubinek,
James Gandolfini, Chris Penn and Tom Sizemore it has to be at least worth
Despite the fact that Tarantino's words in another directors hands doesn't
feel that right, and the fact that Scott's very slick Hollywood direction
doesn't quite match with Tarantino's much less establishment writing this
still a good film. As you'd expect it rips off every `lovers on the run'
movie that you'll have seen but it still is funny and slick enough to
up for the rather generous running time. It may bottle the brave ending
the original script but it has some very good scenes along the
