It has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, I remember it very well when it came out and I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released. Back then, John Travolta just made his come-back with ‘Pulp Fiction’ and this movie was one of the (very) few movies he made afterwards that were also critically acclaimed.

Movie Reviews (1101-1150) (50 movies items)

" One of the funnier intros to a movie where John Travolta punches and shoots Dennis Farina in the short span of a couple of minutes. Gene Hackman as a B-movie director steals every moment as Travolta play a torpedo and wanna-be writer. It is based on another of those good concept Elmore Leonard novels so good cool dialogue and attention to details are obligatory, but after seeing Danny deVito on a Napoleon poster, why did not anyone make a real movie about this?

My Top 150 Favorite Comedies (150 movies items)

"After becoming cool again with his role in Pulp Fiction, John Travolta follows up as a gangster turned movie producer in Get Shorty. A movie about movies in where there really isn't anybody called Shorty that needs to be "get", but the main character is a shylock called Chili Palmer, who is a guy that proves that you can be both a huge movie nerd and a totally hip bad-ass at the same time. Hmmmm.... maybe I should change my screen-name here on this site to "Chili Palmer"......... "

Back then, John Travolta just made his come-back with ‘Pulp Fiction’ and this movie was one of the (very) few movies he made afterwards that were also critically acclaimed. Well, to be honest, even though it was indeed not bad at all, somehow, I had a hard time to really care about the damned thing. I don’t know, Travolta was fine and he had some nice chemistry with Rene Russo and the concept of this criminal getting involved in the movie business was really neat but, at the end of the day, it was all rather shallow and silly. Eventually, since this movie was quite popular, 10 years” read more
