    My Best Friend's Birthday

    -No rating-
    Saw this during my lunch break. The final film was lost due to a fire. So all that remains is this portion. I can't imagine how depressed I'd be if I lost my first film. Anyway, it's an interesting watch nonetheless.

    The most intriguing thing is that almost all of Tarantino's mannerisms are present. His dialogue, story-telling, performance, Kung-fu and even his shot designs hint at his eye that we have all come to know and love. I'm…

    This is going to be a difficult review. It is always hard for me to describe my dislike for a film whose ideas I agree with. This film was the most exhausting experience I have ever had in my life.

    Wow.. and to think this was the highest grossing film of 2000.
    Before I start I want to say a few things that I learned on IMDb recently. First, this films original cut was 3.5 hrs long.. which was trimmed to 2 hrs & 3 min.
