    I think I was in love with this movie within the first five minutes. It's one of those great movies that feels like it was made just for me and the fact that most people who watch it probably feel like that is part of what makes it so great.

    I've seen hundreds of films and will see hundreds more but I doubt that anything could ever delight me more than that 360 shot of The Avengers.

    Annual baking breakdown while this movie plays quietly on TBS in the background? Check!

    My family only watches this once a year but we utiltize the phrase "Just say we're doing it for an old pal in the army" all year round.

    I can't even think of words to describe the ways I love this movie. Masterfully clever, shocking, nail-bitingly tense, hilarious - the cast is a once in a lifetime cavalcade of awesome and I have no doubt that there are a number of scenes that will be studied in film classes years from now. Definitely Quentin Tarantino's most mature, coherent film and arguably his best. QT deserved the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year and it is a travesty that Melanie Laurent wasn't even nominated for her performance.

    Not at all what I was expecting - in a good way. Funny, interesting and surprisingly somber at times; I can see myself revisiting this film quite a bit in the future.
