5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie.
Really enjoyed this movie. A little slow in the beginning, but it more than makes up for it as the movie progresses. Another great Quentin Tarantino movie. Great service. Will purchase again.

This review is from: True Romance (Widescreen/Full Screen) (Director's Cut) (DVD)I purchased this DVD everything was great it was delivered quickly but when I opened the DVD it was terribly scratched, figured it would be okay so I begin to watched it and it was fine up until the last 30mins I would not play it started skipping and I was unable to finished the movie as it was frozen and when it would play it would just skip to a screen and be frozen. The quality was terrible I would not buy from them again as I have tired to contact them about this issue and I have had no response. I would be please of they could offer a solution.

This review is from: True Romance: Director's Cut (DVD)One of the best movies of all times. Watch for a young Brad Pitt in an understated roll. Love Christian Slater

5.0 out of 5 stars Tarentino's Frist - Possibly His Best...,
Tony Scott's sugar-coated adaptation works wonders though. It was made very clear in the script that the relationship between the two leads was very strong. Scott took this unison and gave the film a fairy-tale tone. The villains in the film are very colourful, contributing to the feel that Scott has established. Hans Zimmer's score does nothing better, than to enforce this vision.
The cast is one of the most impressive line-ups I've ever seen. Much of the film rests on the shoulders of Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette, both characters come off very likable with clear, clean, simple motives. These are career performances. Dennis Hopper gives good in his limited screen-time as Christian's ex-cop, ex-alcoholic father. It is in his time shared with Christopher Walken (being a one-scene wonder, like in "Pulp Fiction"), that he comes off at his best. The Sicilian scene is Walken's most intense since "Deer Hunter". Gary Oldman also gives another deliciously evil and memorable performance, the man is a chameleon, he is yet to unimpress me.
But one of my favourite things about the cast is seeing then-relative-unknowns Samuel L. Jackson, Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini in small, but memorable roles. A real shame that Jackson's performance was cut down heavily from the script, some of the dialogue in his one scene was very amusing, if maybe a little offensive to some.
"True Romance" is a brilliant crime drama, and a perfect (if phased) introduction to Tarantino's work, it is probably the most accessible film he's penned. People will always ponder over whether or not Tarantino's directorial version would have been better, but they can always rest-assure that Scott has given a wonderful adaptation, supported by a very strong cast. It could have been much, much worse.
3.0 out of 5 stars Falls In Love With A Whore.....OOOOOOooooook,
This review is from: True Romance [Import] (DVD)There were lots of things that i liked about true romance but i just couldnt get over the fact that this dude fell in love with a whore so quickly. His standards would have to b wayyyyyyy low but nevertheless his love for her seemed excessive and christian slater bothered me as the lead character. With that said there were lots of great supporting roles. This was probably brad pitts easyiest roll just having to sit there and "act" dumb, christopher walker was his usual greatness and the actor who played slaters dad had the best line in the whole movie. There is lots going for this movie but i just couldnt get over the origonal concept.

This review is from: True Romance: Unrated Director's Cut / À coeur perdu : Montage du réalisateur (Bilingual) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)Directed by Tony Scott

Video codec: VC-1

This isn't a great Blu-ray presentation. Detail is murky in places and the image is overly scrubbed. Probably 3/5.
The reason I like it is the writing. Tarantino's dialogue has a distinct feel. You either like it or you don't. I find it very funny and I love it. He wasn't at his peak here, but was establishing his voice still. There are excellent moments and some not so good.
Slater does pretty well as Clarence. Arquette's Alabama is an essential character and their relationship works.
The best scene in the movie is where Christopher Walken's character interrogates Hopper's. Just brilliant writing.
It's full of star power with big name actors playing tiny roles. It's very violent in the way of a Tarantino movie. The basic plot is very simple and could be summarized in a single paragraph, but this is more about the journey.
Humour, a Mexican standoff, blood, bizarre dialogue, it's all there.
Not in the same league as Pulp Fiction, but it felt more like a Tarantino movie than a Scott movie.
