Child's play.

If you really want to torture yourself, watch Chicago.



Virtually unwatchable. Classifiable as a torture device.
I'm pretty sure they broke some human rights conventions by making it.

I'm not saying it's the worst movie ever made, only that it very possibly might be.

Jackie Brown is boring.

Ugh. Agree. Beyond just being incredibly lame, it did a really poor job of conveying any shred of Chicago-ness—pretty inexcusable for a movie named after the city it’s supposed to take place in.

It might be well shot or historically significant or whatever, but why is it so boring?

That may be true but have you considered that Jackie Brown is in fact also boring.

It's not though. It's charming, funny and has a lively script full of memorable characters and involving dialogue. Best of all, Tarantino somehow manages not to let it devolve into a pointless, boring violence orgy. For once.
