    It has a 12 foot tall cat person get in a swordfight with a psychopath in a mech suit, whats not to like?

    My mom got the VHS tape of Pulp Fiction in, iirc, 1995 or 1996 (and I’d bet she still has it) and let me watch it. Loved that movie so damn much! I saw Reservoir Dogs at some point too, and also liked that.

    I did not see Jackie Brown, and still haven’t, although it does look pretty good. Just never quite appeared solidly on the radar; it…
