True Romance
Released in 1993
Written by Tarantino
Directed by Tony Scott

Tarantino was not a name anyone knew at that time
When you click the link at the end of this blog to see the movie’s trailer
He wasn’t even mentioned

The movie is credited to Tony Scott
He just finished Top Gun, The Last Boy Scott, Days of Thunder, Beverly Hills Cop II
Which is why this is the most action packed Tarantino film

The adventure begins in gritty Detroit
A mix-up happens with a pimp (in an incredible Christian Slater & Gary Oldman scene)
Slater finds that he now has a suitcase of drugs
And with the Sicilian Mob after him
Road Trips to LA
With the girl of his dreams he met the night before along for the ride

The movie is a perfect marriage of Tarantino setting a scene
Combined with Tony’s Scott’s fast cars, fighting scenes, and explosiveness
The movie has an energetic pace … where a slower scene is welcomed to regain your breath

Is there a better scene in a Quentin Tarantino movie than …
Christopher Walken questioning Dennis Hopper?

The cast also includes Brad Pitt & Samuel L Jackson (before you ever heard of them)
And there’s never been a better shootout to end a movie

Every person has their favorite film for a reason
I connect with Clarence Worley (Slater) knowing there’s something better out there than what he’s got
He took charge of the situation … and smiled the whole way
And So will you while watching this movie
