GRADE 7.5Man, can’t believe it took me so long to watch this! I had a total blast. This movie is so… crazy… yes, that’s the word. It is littered with trademark Tarantino dialogue, so naturally it is awesome to listen to. Not only that, it is carried by an impressive cast, too, who all do a great job. Given that, I do feel that they were rather underused at the best of times. The score is something that stands out, too, because it is so quirky, but it fits with the movie completely. The story is just balls to the wall silly, yet you are engaged from the off, and I was super interested to see how this whirlwind relationship between Alabama and Clarence would work out. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed at all. The movie was entertaining and shot well, and carried by some solid performances. It wasn’t too long, either, just long enough to share the story with the audience, get you in, and not skip over too much, but never long enough to bore you. I really wish there had been more of Brad Pitt’s stoner Floyd, and I thought Gandolfini was excellent here – the scene with him and Arquette was fantastic, too. The film was fast, unusual (though nothing not seen before), and came together very well. Tarantino really is a masterful storyteller. Arquette and Slater also worked wonders together, playing off each other, and you could buy into their loopy little relationship, purely because it seemed to work so well for them. True Romance is a fantastical tale that is entertaining and endearing at the same time, smart and witty, and is well worth a watch should you ever come across it. It definitely won’t be a waste of your time.

GRADE 8.5I have featured Kiss Kiss Bang Bang in a few of my Sporadic Scene posts, but I have never actually reviewed it. Well, the time has come to change that. I freaking love this movie. I happened upon it completely by chance with my cousin back when it was released, and we had a great laugh that day, and the movie has provided me with endless laughs over the decade since it’s release. Yes, I’ve seen this movie quite a few times over the years. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang is incredibly sharp, witty and hilarious and is carried by a fantastic cast that embodies the crazy that we undertake when we start this. Robert Downey Jr before Iron Man is also cool to watch, I wonder if people remember he actually did other things before he became Tony Stark? Because he did. And he is good. Naturally, he is fast talking and slick, RDJ completely owns his role. The chemistry his Harry Lockhart has with Val Kilmer’s Gay Perry is awesome, and they just run with each other so well. Michelle Monaghan really is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen, and she was in fine form for this. The music complemented the movie, and the plot was laid out so well. There wasn’t any lull or time to get bored, and the plot was not overly simple, but never got so complicated and convoluted that it became pointless, either. Harry Lockhart narrating the story was something that just flowed here, it was not jarring and it was not silly. It actually gave some kick to the movie, and I liked that. I also really like the way the movie was shot, it’s pretty stylish. There are so many incredibly memorable and hilarious scenes to this movie, and they never get old. Also, this movie is so quotable. Well, for me at any rate. Snappy and sassy, it definitely stays with you long after the fact. If you have not seen this movie yet, do yourself a massive favour and find it, I doubt you will regret it!

Sporadic Scene: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) – The Definition of an Idiot

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang is just one of those movies that is filled with a whole bunch of quotable lines. With sharp and fast dialogue, you have got to know that the humour was really sarcastic and witty. One of those gems that are studded throughout this movie is definitely the definition of an idiot!

Digital Shortbread Sporadic Scene: Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) – Moving the Corpse

I have great joy today in welcoming Tom of Digital Shortbread today with a scene from one of the most entertaining movies!

Well, the scene I’m choosing is just a simply and purely ridiculous one. I am not even sure if I must explain my reasoning for it, the scene seems to speak for itself pretty well. What scene am I talking about?

Why, everyone’s favorite “Moving the Corpse” scene from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang!

One of my all-time favorite movie quotes is contained within this scene: “Why in perfect hell, would you piss on a corpse?!” hahahaha

When interrogation goes another way than that which is expected? Priceless. Especially when involving some sketchy maths.
