Insert: Brad Pitt's accent was so funny.....

Fake outrage.  Gotta love it.

Do you also hate monty python for the same reasons?  What about Mel Brooks History of the World?  The inquisition is no laughing matter, and neither are the crusades.

Jeesh.

Do you understand what the KurtRussel movie was? An ode to the Drive-In double features and him and RobertRodriquiez made two Grindhouse hits. What they were aiming for were not 2 regular features.I can't tell you what to like but your only valid argument is you don't like them.

if you cant laugh at the good flick inglorious person then what the f*ck....

stop taking everything so seriously. sometimes it's good to find humor in something so ridiculously insane.

q's dialogue is top notch. his soundtracks are history lessons. his movies are tributes to past influences and takes it to another level.

only problem with q's flicks are that they can tend to drag on a bit since the man doesnt have an edit button.

kill bill shud of been just one flick just short of 3 hrs. it wud of been pimp sh*t.

Tarantino's movies are entertaining, but he took his whole style from Asian Cinema.  There's a few guys he's directly ripped off and only gives them indirect credit in obscure publications nobody reads.

Pulp Fiction and Resovoir Dogs are so good that every other movie he makes could be terrible, and you could never say his movies suck.

Yes.  Rent them at your local library, or underground cinema store.


Reservoir Dogs 1992 = City on Fire 1987

Jackie Brown 1997 = any 70's Blaxploitation film with Pam Grier

Kill Bill 2003-2004 = Lady Snowblood 1973

Inglorious person 2009 = The Inglorious person 1978

Not to mention Pulp Fiction 1994 had rip offs from Bonnie's Kids 1973 in addition to being partially written by Roger Avary. 

Don't get me started on Grindhouse, it's title alone basically admits ripping off an entire genre as well.

Quentin Tarantino said this was his all time favorite b movie and still watches it to this day:

Crackhouse

There's 7-10 parts, you can find them in order on the side.  Roll you a fat one and slink into 1980's Los Angeles debauchery.

Great fuckin movie I must say.

I couldn't even pretend to like a Monty Python movie. Straight garbage.

I guess I'm not so much outraged as I am disgusted at how utterly stupid and trivial these types of flicks are (Inglorius, Monty).

These flicks make the Sacha Baron Cohen movies look like intellectual endeavors. You have to make a conscious effort to laugh at Monty Python. It is not natural. It is predetermined.

If QT pays homage to Japanese Kung-FU is he ripping off?

He's not friggin Brian DePlama!

Hell yeah he steals, but he converts it into his own style and does a great job doing it.  What director doesn't steal?  That's part of the business.  

All his movies are a tribute to what he likes.  

You can tell he's a big Alfred Hitchcock fan like in Pulp Fiction the brief case was a MacGuffen, a concept created by Hitchcock in North by Northwest.  

His segment in Four Rooms was a updated remake of a Hitchcock short.  

Jackie Brown was a tribute to Black Exploitation films and Elmore Leonard since it was adapted from Leonard's book "Rum Punch".   All of Elmore Leonards books have that same style that is in Tarantino's films.    Also, Pam Grier who was "Foxy Brown" in the 70's.

Kill Bill tribute to old Kung Fu movies, the cast were even veterans of Kung Fu entertainment.  

Grindhouse was a tribute to old B rated drive in horrors.  

He's one of the few directors out there that is writing his own garbage.  Most movies you see are either adapted from books or a remake of a movie from the past.  

A lot of people think De Palmas "Scarface" was so original and great. Most of them don't know it was a remake of the 1938 Scarface, the only change was the era,  instead of Alcohol in the 20's it was Cocaine in the 70's.   The plot was exactly the same.  

Indiana Jones?  Watch some old Ronald Reagan movies.

He did the screenplay for Natural Born Killers and I guess Oliver Stone and a few others revised it.  I thought that was a great movie as well.
