I kinda agree, but I think I have seen them all. With That Said, I have to admit that I spend way too much time in front of a monitor/screen/tv. I have never bought tickets to see one; and never will.
I once said pretty much the exact same thing here and got mocked by Colorado E. I do like Mister Pink, however.
I have no use violence as entertainment.
Hence, I have no use for QT or most of his peers.
Violence is the manifestation of all of humanity’s most base instincts.
We all live with it in some form.
I refuse to sit before a glowing object of any kind and subject myself to it for sport/entertainment.
The only one I really like is the not-mentioned-so-far 'Jackie Brown' - which is a good example of proper 'story-telling'. Some of his films are looking very dated, imho.
Give me a Cohen Bothers film any day!
It’s not the violence that made his name, its the memorable dialogue. Lots of directors use just as much gratuitous violence but fall short with the stylization and dialogue.
I've never hit anybody in my life. I am against violence and I wish weapons had never been invented, but I love me some Quentin Tarantino movies.
I thought some films were ok until they smashed that priceless gibson acoustic in the hateful eight, that's the kind of sloppy professionalism that got brandon lee killed.
I liked them all except Jackie Brown and the Hateful Eight. He has a creative way of language and the guarantee of a ridiculous death in his movies.
I thought it was a Martin.
I don't have a problem with the violence as much as the language and stupid sex scenes; i.e. DeNiro and Fonda in Jackie Brown, although I did love Pam Grier. Other than this film, only Kill Bill 1 appealed to me but frankly nothing else he does excites me. I haven't seen a film of his in years, and in no rush either....
I like four:
I really kinda got off his bus after Pulp Fiction. But...
A couple years ago I stumbled upon Basterds on HBO one night. It pays for itself in the first scene alone. If someone can watch that opening scene and tell me it's not one of the finer pieces of writing, directing, and acting in the medium, well they likely need to change a tube or two in their cinematic radar set. Christoph Waltz got an Oscar for that role, and deservedly so...very deservedly. It is one of the most chillingly realistic and fear-inducing scenes I ever saw. And, it's just two men sitting at a table talking. A lot of his stuff is admittedly cartoonish and throwaway, but this one is high art, IMHO. And Waltz...amazing performance.
Likewise, the dialog he wrote for Sam Jackson at the end of Pulp Fiction...genius (and I do not use that word lightly).
But, yes, much of his stuff is forgettable and adolescent (esp. his stuff with Robert Rodriguez). But there also is more than enough evidence of his skill and potential available to see.
It was a Martin, but that "prop" error has nothing to do with the movie itself. Just sayin'
Okay, I’ve been mulling this over a bit. I really liked the John Wick movies, but find Tarantino’s films to be borderline disturbing. I think it’s because I viewed the Wick flicks to be almost comic book/fantasy action, whereas Tarantino glorifies sociopathic behavior-and he’s extremely graphic in the presentation.
it was my mistake
It was their mistake, lol.
My opinion of him has gone down hill greatly since he released Django Unchained. Terrible movie...just terrible.
I can't deny ive enjoyed Pulp Fiction for many years though. Resevoir Dogs and Jackie Brown are nothing to be ashamed of. Kill Bill and Death Proof..not my cup of tea. Loved Inglourious Basterds and Hateful Eight.
Always been middle of the road about his films. But that Django...boy..
