Another Quentin Tarantino film, this one is a classic. This movie is one of the most quoted, and recognizable movie, and honestly one of the all-time best movies ever created. But be warned, if you do not like any other Quentin Tarantino movies, you will most likely not like this one. Still it is a great movie, with plenty of wisdom coming from Samuel L. Jackson’s character. This movie also carries some of the best movie dialogue ever written. One key example of this is a brilliant use of this Bible quote from Ezekiel 25:17. It is as follows,
“Ezekiel 25:17. “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.”
The scenes in which this line is used, are the highlights of this movie. Still there are many things that make this movie great, every single actor is perfect and nails their role in the story, the overall plot and story is well done, even when the movie is purposely edited in a messy/ incorrect order. Everything seems like it has a proper place, sure this movie is very violent, inappropriate and offensive. It uses offensive language that will make many people uncomfortable, so if you are either not bothered by this, or you think you can handle it, I highly suggest you watch this movie, even then, it may be worth chancing being offended to watch this movie. But I do so with caution.
