JACKIE BROWN (R) In virtually every scene, you know you’re watching a movie by the creator of Pulp Fiction, but the fizz — the exhilaration — is gone. Adapting the Elmore Leonard novel Rum Punch, Quentin Tarantino spins a twisty, overdeliberate crime yarn about Jackie Brown (Pam Grier), a flight attendant who crafts a plan to steal half a million dollars from Ordell (Samuel L. Jackson), a volatile arms dealer, even as she nails him for the Feds. Grier, as always, is commanding, but in Jackie Brown she’s also the matriarch of Tarantino’s I-wanna-be-black dream party. B
