The point I was making was that both movies lean on something to make them work. Take those things away and they fall apart. Though, Pulp Fiction doesn't really fall apart as much as it reveals...

What makes the story so appealing to you? Also, what do you think, if anything, the movie is trying to say if it is a commentary? How does the timeline further this?

Yes. Because the story it's trying to tell isn't that interesting. So it relies on the time hopping to distract from a poor narrative. It's like James Cameron and Avatar. His story and characters...

Stories should stand on their own. For example, Memento in chronological order is still a damn fine thriller and its themes remain intact. Irreversible remains just as potent also.

First, Pulp Fiction is well made and well acted. I don't dislike it so keep that it mind. But it is a thematically empty movie. It is style over substance incarnate. Tarantino doesnt even attempt to...

I like them both. But i think the fact that most people ignore some major problems in Pulp Fiction and Shawshanks ubiquity have soured me on them.

Funny you say that. I remember when it won, I mentioned to my friends how much better I thought Zero Dark Thirty was. They pretty much yelled at me.

You find it that bad? I thought it was perfectly middle of the road. Nothing to get worked up over.

I think I may actually like Weeks more. I love them both though and I really just consider them one movie when I watch them (usually around Halloween).

Its supposed to be. And Marty is there to call Rust out on it. I think the audience took the show too seriously. Pizzolato bought into his own hype and took the wrong lessons from season 1.

Whats with the explosions with the sparks? I don't think things explode like that in a real war zone.

Going for a real Zero Dark Thirty tone with that last shot. Which makes me sad this wasn't given...
