    Jackie Brown

    ★★★★½

    The quintessential hangout film (a term coined & perfected by Tarantino himself). Often too easily dismissed as a failed attempt at blaxploitation, which it isn't, it is not what the critics and audiences were expecting after Pulp Fiction.

    Jackie Brown is the least 'Tarantino' film, but certainly not amongst his worst. It's a very relaxed and comforting film, one that gets better with a rewatch because, ultimately, its charm lies in its fun characters and their casual interactions. With very little…

    ★★★½

    Pissing, vomiting, deviant college partying, constant sexuality and cannibalism. The only thing that could have made this film edgier is if they added a scene where the main character that used to be shy now menacingly looks herself in the mirror and dances while the edgiest song they could have found about drugs and necrophilia plays. Shit, that actually happens in the film.

    Most of Raw is college teen drama stuff with uninteresting and uninspired dialogues leading to nowhere. It…
