I always thought the plot to Pulp Fiction was fairly easy to follow. I think it would take a lot away from the film to see it rearranged like that. The censorship on cable TV is painful enough to watch. It's one of those movies that encourages you to follow along, like it's almost hard to look away, and the censorship takes away from that IMO.

No kidding. That's what makes the movie so distinct and interesting...

Watched two tonight



I really didn't mind it - I thought the cheesyness of Dawn killed it in my first viewing though gained a different appreciation of that with a group of friends. The gore was a little too intense even for me at times tbh. And I prefer the movie much much more with my interpretation -
SPOILER>>> They were killed when she went to hop into the helicopter, my reasoning being that the only other time you see her crossing off her calendar was during her initial dream, and the final scene is a 'better place' type dream, though that is a bit of a cop out. Not that just imagining them finding a place of solitude is any consolation. If that was 'real' I would have much prefered seeing a zombie walk out from the trees.<<< SPOILER





Japanese psychological thriller. I really quite enjoyed it, though theories abound from its ending and how it came to.

^ This was my last watch as well, i'm assuming it's a 'the books better' jobby. Pretty good though, gotta love Jeff Bridges in it.

I thought that movie was great. It made me really wish I was psychic.

The Rifftrax (link) and about four bowls actually made it pretty watchable. I don't know if I could take it sober/solo, though--I might chew my arm off.

Nah I've only seen it once, and it jumped from here to there and back and to somewhere else. Confusing. I may watch it again.



Awesome film.
