  • Jackie Brown Dutch's Rum Punch Quentin-ized

    Feb 8, 2003 by ChrisJarmick is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Movies
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great marriage of Elmore Leonard, Pam Grier with matured Tarrantino. See it again.
    Cons: None-really.

    Summary: Superb DVD package for a film that gets better with repeated viewings. More will appreciate with time like they have done with films like Scorcese's King of Comedy, Altman's Long Goodbye and Soderbergh's Out of Sight. Quentin Tarantino ... read more

  • Tarantino's forgotten gem

    Dec 2, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well told story, great characters, funky sound track
    Cons: The usual Tarantino excess

    Summary: I like Quinten Tarantino, I’m not a diehard fan, but I do enjoy most of his work. I recently got around to seeing Jackie Brown, and I must say, I feel it is one of his stronger films. It is very similar to Pulp Fiction and most of his other work in a lot ... read more

  • DREAMING OF A BLACK CHRISTMAS #11: JACKIE BROWN

    Dec 14, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's always good to see Pam Grier getting work. Disc is loaded with extras!
    Cons: Overly long and pointless in places.

    Summary: What up, my brothas! Welcome to my Black Christmas (and I don't mean Q'Uanz'hah, or whatever the hell it is) write off. Come celebrate the best and worst of hard hitting, hard lovin', two fisted, no nonsense blaxploitation flicks ever offered by ... read more

  • If you had a chance at half a million...

    Mar 21, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty much the entire cast, except Fonda
    Cons: Bridget Fonda, and even I'll admit it's too long

    Summary: I am Quentin Tarantino's bizzitch, and that's all there is to it. He's my favorite living director (Kubrick would be my favorite deceased, in case you were wondering), and it's not too much to say that I'd watch an in-depth scientific analysis of baby ... read more

  • Booh Ya!

    Sep 30, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Everything.
    Cons: Nothing.

    Summary: This is one of my favorite movies. I am a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino and his films. Pulp Fiction being his strongest and Jackie Brown being right behind it. I love this movie with a passion. With an amazing cast, a brilliant story and far beyond ... read more

  • A Long Time Woman Gets Her Due: Miramax's Jackie Brown Collector's Edition DVD

    Sep 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: A more mature Quentin Tarantino film, with his dialogue and style left intact
    Cons: Some find it overlong and overdull; I sure as heck don't

    Summary: I waited a long time to see "Jackie Brown", because I heard it wasn't any good, and I didn't want to tarnish the memory of "Reservoir Dogs" or "Pulp Fiction", two of the most influential films in my personal cinematic history. Both films were kinetic, ... read more

  • Jackie Brown - Noir? Nah. Cool? Yes.

    Apr 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Possibly Tarantino's best film. De Niro. Samuel L. Jackson.
    Cons: Lots of dialogue (but it's cool)

    Summary: I like to think I know my cinema. I can bandy the word “noir” around when I get confused, rattle off a dozen French director’s names to impress the chicks, and slag the mass-produced Hollywood blockbusters like I’d be the first to knock $20 million back ... read more

  • Pam Grier is. . .Jackie Brown

    Jan 14, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some funny dialogue, good performances all around, Tarantino is still a great director
    Cons: A slight disappointment after seeing Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction

    Summary: Huge hype surrounded Tarantino's follow-up film after Pulp Fiction. But did Jackie Brown live up to this hype? Yes and no. The trademark witty dialogue of Tarantino is there, but not the energy. There were actually parts of this movie that were slightly ... read more

  • I love this movie!

    Mar 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great cast, compelling story, clever.
    Cons: Little slow at times.

    Summary: Movies that center their theme around money-drops and guns usually aren't my favorite, but Jackie Brown has a sort of magic mixed with reality that is hard to resist. It's clever, funny, and makes you think. It can be a little confusing at times, ... read more

  • "Jackie Brown" Is One Badass Movie!

    Mar 4, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: One badass movie!
    Cons: One badass movie!

    Summary: After screening "Jackie Brown" for the first time, my reaction was exactly the same as film critic Gene Siskel's. My reaction was just one word: "Wow!" From writer/director Quentin Tarantino comes this beautifully crafted character study. Pam ... read more

  • SLJ when you positively have to save the movie.

    Feb 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Samuel the man Jackson and QT direction
    Cons: Too long and DeNiro not optimized for his skill.

    Summary: This is an interesting movie from many angles. I really love their first hour but the second hour tends to drag a bit. It definitely is a Quentin T movie. Certain styles are QT similar to his other works like Reservoir Dog with the rock music as backdrop ... read more

  • Street Life

    Oct 26, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Grier, Jackson and a slew of good performances
    Cons: Two hour plus length

    Summary: What's a 44 year old black woman with a 16,000 salary to do when she gets caught delivering $50,000 dollars in cash into the US? Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is a flight attendant, who also works for arms dealer Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson), is caught ... read more

  • Jackie Brown; Another Pulp Fiction?

    Jul 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Complex Plot, Good Cast, Great Directing
    Cons: None

    Summary: This is a must see movie. I am a big fan of Quentin Tarantino films and he delivers perfectly in Jackie Brown. Tarantino has a unique style of portraying the little things in life. This quality in his films make them highly relatable. One scene ... read more

  • Attention Deficit Disorder?

    Jul 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Jackson, DeNiro, dialogue
    Cons: Poor execution of the plot, too much focus on unimportant elements

    Summary: Being a young film buff I haven't seen the supposedly masterful "Pulp Fiction". But I've heard the stories and criticisms of Tarantino and what a master of dialogue and characters he is. Coupled with an Elmore Leonard novel and a talented cast ... read more

  • JACKIE BROWN: A Test Quentin Tarantino Didn't Pass.

    Jun 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson and Robert Forster.
    Cons: If not a Tarantino movie, it would have been trimmed to 110 minutes.

    Summary: The good news about JACKIE BROWN (Tarantino, 1997) is the comeback of Pam Grier; the bad news is almost everything else about the film. When I saw it at the Regency Theater in San Francisco, the Management had stationed an usher on the ... read more

  • JACKIE BROWN's Pam Grier still has it

    Jun 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: fine direction, acting, and action
    Cons: weak ending, off-putting violence

    Summary: The opening shot of Quentin Tarentino's Jackie Brown is nothing less than a love letter to '70s "blaxploitation" actress Pam Grier, handily demonstrating that Grier, at age 48, has still got it. Happily, so does Tarentino, though it's a bit of ... read more

  • A Feast for the Eyes & Ears

    May 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The soundtrack, the story, the acting.
    Cons: none

    Summary: Jackie Brown is another brilliant movie from Tarantino. As in Pulp Fiction, Tarantino does an outstanding job of combining story with soundtrack. I would highly suggest purchasing the soundtrack for this movie...Bobby Womack, Minnie Ripperton, The ... read more

  • A Long Strange Turn For the QT

    Apr 11, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent character study, brilliant direction
    Cons: It's a bit slow, and lacks some of the characteristic Tarantinoesque touches that have made him famous

    Summary: Anyone who felt that Quentin Tarantino's work in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction was merely smoke and mirrors should drop what they're doing and go see Jackie Brown. This is Tarantino's third and most recent movie, and in some ways ... read more

  • Pam Grier Is....

    Apr 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great characters, great dialogue
    Cons: way too long!, confusing/ambiguous message

    Summary: Having seen Jackie Brown twice all the way through, I was able to avoid getting caught up in the “Tarantino-esque” nuances of the movie and could look a bit deeper at the details in the movie. As several of Quentin Tarantino’s works have done before it, ... read more

  • Do not let your children watch this movie

    Feb 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: everything
    Cons: nothing

    Summary: This is one you'll want to wait a few years before showing them. The story is about a flight attendant, played very well by Pam Grier, who realizes that her career opportunities are limited. Her big chance to ensure a better retirement comes in the ... read more
