I agree with JB.

I'm in love with Jackson's character!  :oops:
I love all the fuckin' dialoges in Pulpfiction!

                       The path of the righteous man is beset on
                       all sides by the inequities of the
                       selfish and the tyranny of evil
                       men.  Blessed is he who, in the
                       name of charity and good will,
                       shepherds the weak through the
                       valley of darkness, for he is truly
                       his brother's keeper and the finder
                       of lost children.  And I will
                       strike down upon thee with great
                       vengeance and furious anger those
                       who attempt to poison and destroy
                       my brothers.  And you will know my
                       name is the Lord when I lay my
                       vengeance upon you.  :twisted:

It's tough, but I have to go with Pulp Fiction. In many ways, Pulp Fiction is like an improved version of Reservoir Dogs. Tarantino learned from the first film and made the second. Much like Wes Anderson with Rushmore and The Royal Tennenbaums. The second works better as a whole then the first.

I fully agree with you on that. While I admired a lot from both RD and "Rushmore", I loved the next films a lot more. Now we just have to see if they'll one-up themselves again. I'm sure they will. (Tarantino did with JB but I'm sure he will up that with KB)

I'll hold the dissenting opinion on this (first time for everything, huh?). I thought Rushmore was a much better film than Royal Tennenbaums. I loved both, but Rushmore had the better script and was more fulfilling as a movie.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Really? I thought Royal Tennebaums was much more fulfilling. It was way more emotional and funny at the same time. The characters were far more believable in my opinion(as believable as characters like that can be). Plus, from a strictly aesthetic perspective, I found his style of cutting away to a static shot of a stamp collection, etc. worked way better in Royal Tennebaums. It struck me as more of an extension of the film, whereas I found it was just put in more cause it looked cool in Rushmore.
Although, I did see Royal Tennebaums before Rushmore, so that might be biaising me a bit.

I see exactly where you're coming from. I'm not saying Rushmore is far and away a better movie, I'm just saying that I enjoyed Rushmore more than RT because of its story and the way it all came together for me as a movie. Technically speaking, RT is the better movie (from a directing and cinematography standpoint), but I loved Schwartzman's character much more than Hackman's. Plus I usually am keen on leading character, linear movies more than movies with ensemble casts.

Speaking of which, isn't the cinematography beautiful?? The most memorable shot in the entire film for me is Mordecai flying while the camera follows him to the tune of "Hey Jude".

I also think Rushmore is the better film of both Wes Anderson films, even when I don't like Rushmore all that much anyways and dislike it even more when on thought afterwords. I'm going to get hell for it, but I'm going to post a new review of The Royal Tennebaums and bash it big time. Sometime soon that will happen.
