Good, but not original

'Thursday' is a good movie but we recognize too much from other movies in its genre and therefor it lacks originality. If you have seen 'Goodfellas', 'Reservoir Dogs', 'Pulp Fiction' and a bunch of other movies that were inspired by that last one you have seen almost every part from 'Thursday'. There is a scene that involves torturing that has even the same dialogue as in Tarantino's 'Reservoir Dogs'.

Still, it is a good movie. Because not every part is taken from the same movie the complete thing has some new ideas and some nice touches. The opening sequence to begin with, is quite impressive. We meet Nick (Aaron Eckhart),Dallas (Paulina Porizkova) and Billy Hill (James Le Gros). They get into a fight with a clerk in a gas station over a cup of coffee and it ends with the death of that clerk and the arrival of a cop. We've already glimpsed at a suitcase with a lot of money in it.

Then we meet Casey (Thomas Jane) in Houston. He is married to Christine (Paula Marshall) but used to be working with Nick. She doesn't know a thing. Then Nick gives him a call and says that he is coming. We learn that he has screwed his friends over and the problems are about to start.

What happens exactly is not for me to reveal but we meet some other characters, all interested in the money or the drugs Nick also had with him. Casey has flushed those down the drain.

Very funny moments, a lot of blood, a very funny sub-plot involving actor Michael Jeter and some surprises (although if you really think about it you see them coming) this is a good movie with some very fine performances, nicely directed by Skip Woods.

Fun Crime Picture

A former L.A. drug dealer has moved to Houston to make a new life for himself as a married architect. Everything falls apart when he is suddenly visited by one of his former cohorts who comes carrying heroin.

I notice that other reviewers have compared this film to the early work of Tarantino -- and I can see that with some of the dialogue, the mysterious case, the violence... but if this is like Tarantino, it is a paler shade of Tarantino. Still good, mind you, but not quite on his level.

What would have been nice would be more Mickey Rourke. Aaron Eckhart is great (and this may be before he got big),but Rourke is a true master in his roles. Oh well.

Tarantino Homage . Try Making Your Own Film Next Time Skip

It's impossible to watch Skip Woods THURSADAY without being reminded of everything Quentin Tarantino has ever scripted . The movie starts with a trio of desperado's in a store who commit a couple of cold blooded murders , shades of NATURAL BORN KILLERS here I think . Then the story cuts to a couple of brothers with a very shady past which is not to dissimilar to FROM DUSK TILL DAWN . There's flashbacks to a double cross ala PULP FICTION and wait for this - A segment features a man tied up in a chair which has the audience gasping " How the hell is he going to get out of this ? " It's a very exciting sequence and would have been very memorable if RESERVOIR DOGS hadn't been made a mere six years earlier !

So it's impossible to judge Skip Woods movie without being reminded of Tarantino who is the most overrated and plagerised film maker of the 1990s and what you make of THURSDAY is entirely down to how you rate Tarantino as a screenwriter/director . I guess one good thing about THURSDAY is that it can save you money - Instead of spending money on several Tarantino movies all you have to do is hire this at the video store and you've got ten movies for the price of one
