    I need to learn how to NOT turn it to this movie whenever I see it on cable. I always end up watching the whole thing.

Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best.

    Not at all what I was expecting - in a good way. Funny, interesting and surprisingly somber at times; I can see myself revisiting this film quite a bit in the future.
