These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Take That: Ordell's last line to Louis could be interpreted as a subtle one to Robert De Niro, whose career choices as of late have been less than stellar.
Probably more a Hilarious in Hindsight, as De Niro's career slump didn't really hit until the 21st century. By the time Jackie's Brown had come out, his most recent film choices had included Casino, Heat, Wag The Dog, and Copland.
Tough Act to Follow: This was Tarantino's next movie after Pulp Fiction. No way it was going to get as much praise, even if it is a very good movie on its own.
Vindicated by History: At the time of release, while Jackie Brown was praised, it was also criticized for not beingPulp Fiction. Jackie Brown, in comparison, was a more subtle and realistic movie. Years down the line, these qualities are frequently cited whenever the movie gets praised, and now Jackie Brown frequently ranks high, if not sometimes actually beating Pulp Fiction, as Tarantino's best.
