    DVD: I haven't seen this in well over 20 years. As an adult, I can't understand how everyone agreed to this script. It's as if the shooting draft of the script was written by the 12 year old son of the head of the studio. Every other aspect of the film is bringing their A game but if you have a bad script, it's impossible to rise above it regardless of how much ADR lines you pump into your movie in post.

    I was visiting Los Angeles in 1999 and saw this at a test screening - so I had no idea what movie I was about to see.
    That's my review. I wanted to explain why I saw this movie.

    Tarantino is so good that even Jamie Fox can't ruin this movie.
    Hilarious, bloody, intense, epic. Exactly what you'd expect from a slave movie / Western from Quentin Tarantino. I had high expectations and this film met them. Always a good year when there's a film from this writer/director to remind us how good movies can be - and should be.
