"I liked the movie, thought the dialogue and character development was superb, but left the theater feeling slimed. The performances were far beyond what I had expected, especially Bruce Willis. Samuel L. Jackson of course was the best, just scene after scene. Travolta was great too, showing depth of character I hadn't seen before. Uma Thurman, great. Quentin Tarantino, not my favorite person in the movie business, was the biggest surprise, making his character seem so real and idiosyncratic. I was creeped-out, though, especially by "the Gimp." Yikes. I don't go to movies to get creeped-out. Wanton murder and depravity are not things that interest me. I guess that is where I part company with the purely artistic approach. For me, the artistry serves the story, not the other way around. If the story isn't meaningful, all the artistry in the world won't make the movie worth watching. Some great quotes came from this movie. I still go around asking people what the French call a Big Mac. Half the time they say they don't know. It's the most fun to be in a group of people, some of whom get it, some don't."
