'Destiny' is a difficult movie to describe, and definitely an aquired taste (see other reviews below). A twisted blend of comedy, romance, action, and magic realism, it stands a lot of traditional movie images on their heads. Yes, Q. Tarantino has a small but pivotal role as Johnny Destiny, a character who changes many of the characters lives for the worse, then reappears to set things right in unexpected ways. Tarantino, however did NOT write or direct (director: Jack Barans), which leads to a sunnier and more romantic sort of movie. Nancy Travis shines as Lucille, an estranged love of main character Julian (Dylan McDermott). There are many great character parts, from James Belushi's 'Twerto', to Tracey Walters' philosophical desert rat, 'Pappy'. If you want something fresh, magical, unpredictable, and laugh-out-loud funny, I do recommend this highly (that's why the 5 stars). Look for McDermott's hilarious entrance on a motorcycle (about midway through the movie)...it makes me laugh every time!

I am not a film scholar, and I don't work at watching films. They are a form of entertainment and relaxation for me. Perhaps this is what allowed me to enjoy this film so much. I stumbled across this gem in the rough while checking out what was on cable (actually satellite), which allowed a no-expectations experience of the film, and I really liked it, particularly the use of color. Off-beat and fresh are cliches for indie films, but they both apply to this charming and humorous movie. The imagery was memorable, and the acting was just what this strange and entertaining film called for. I am tempted to call aspects of this movie "experimental", but it is more accesible than most "experimantal films," and, frankly more fun. You don't have to work to enjoy it, you just have to relax. It is a natural for DVD viewing, which allows for experiencing this visually compelling, if somewhat weird, adventure in a low key setting with a glass or two of wine after a long day at work. Watching Tarantino act in the film is another plus, for those who enjoy his directing and writing, as I do. I am looking forward to its being released on DVD, and will certainly purchase it when it does. Who even watches VHS any more?

I have this movie on LaserDisc (remember that technology?) and would love to see it released on DVD. This film is about second chances in life. And the choices confronting people who have those chances. Do they leap for love or ? It is also about finding "happily ever after", which always means different things to different people. That second chances may derive from a "fairy godfather" aka Quentin Tarantino does not detract from the story line. In fact, Quentin has a very small part of the story line. This film is not about gambling (for money), although it is set in Las Vegas. Jim Belushi does a great turn as a casino manager, deftly portraying the callousness of Vegas life as it pertains to women and their place in that life. There is lots of subtle comedy in this film. Not to mention romance. I love the two leads - Dylan and Nancy. Their screen chemistry was amazing. After we watched this movie a few times, my husband and I suddenly realized that we KNEW the pink motel...and it is not in Las Vegas! It is on San Fernando Road in the Los Angeles area and has been non-operational for the many years we lived in the area. If you look closely during the motel scenes that face the road, you'll see some red flashing lights high in the air. Those lights are the "four stacks". They are a landmark that divides the airspace of two airports (Burbank to the south and Whiteman to the north). We used to fly out of Whiteman. When we realized those flashing lights were the 4 stacks, we also realized the location of the pink motel! We drove by the motel the next time we went to Whiteman. The pool...was empty...and had no crack! Bummer. Anyone that enjoys independent or foreign films will find this movie very entertaining and enjoyable. And well worth the time.

I watched this movie at 2 a.m. and found it had enough to keep me awake! Takes a sophisticated sense of humor to catch the dryness underlying the wit. Unusual plot. Fun to visit Vegas–especially if you're living in rain-soaked country. Enjoy it as fun, not a work of art.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!! It is just quirky enough for my sense of humor. It is also the first time I became a fan of Quintin Tarantino. If you like his warped sense of humor you will love this movie.

Ofcourse there are a lot of people with a lot of different tastes when it comes to judging a movie. My opinion: I realy enjoyed this movie and I will look at it again. You don't always have to dissect a movie, sometimes you just have to watch it! For the people that don't know what to do: go and rent it first, I can understand that not everyone likes this kind of movies.
