Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs
Kill Bill, Inglorious Basterds, the other ones
It's a bit liek a computer game where she has to kill all the different end of level bosses until she kills the main boss. His name was Bill.
I think this film passes the bechdel test.
Conclusion: films that pass the Bechdel test are boring.
I used to think Jackie Brown was good but I watched it again recently and it's not
I watched it 2 weeks ago and it was nowhere near what I remembered
Death Proof is ridiculously shit
Kill Bill is OK but should have been one film really. The rest of his films are very good to brilliant. Jackie Brown is probably my favourite of his.
Django Unchained (need to watch again)
Jackie Brown (need to watch again)
I'd stick True Romance after Reservoir Dogs and Naturl Born Killers around Kill Bill.
The 5 Minute Meals Of Mr Jamie Oliver
The preperation times of Mr Jamie Oliver's Meals
Jackie Brown (it's his best one, slags), Pulp Fiction.
Kill Bill 1&2, Death Proof.
Inglourious Basterds, Django Unchained.
Never seen Resevoir Dogs or his first one that he pretends he never made now.
What's that then?
...that he scripted (I think).
not a tarantino film mainly I guess
I love the first half of the film, then when it actually becomes a vampire film it's just fucking stupid
It is fucking GAH-O-RAMA
It was directed by Robert Rodriguez, who's far more consistent.
Have found the others to be, at worst, quite enjoyable - have never hated one or thought it to be shit.
The recent ones (Kill Bill onwards) have shown that he badly needs to be told when to cut back though, in particular Django Unchained, which could have been trimmed into a far better film.
I'm not necessarily against indulgence in films (Once Upon a Time in the West is all the better for it)
but Tarantino's indulgences include him making cameos as an Australian, which audiences should be spared at all costs.
(written not directed).
I wish he'd just make a normal film again.
everything after jackie brown is like a cartoon film with everyone mugging to the camera.
it's obviously a tricky skill to pull off - that weird blend of larger than life and naturalistic. Great fun when it works, atrocious when it doesn't.
In that when he made a different sort of film that didn't make any money he immediately reverted to the overviolent, stylised fare with which he made his name (with much less effective results).
who can make big budget versions of his favourite explotation films/b-movies.
and the viewers mileage will depend on how much they also buy into that geekery.
that's a Mr Sidney Poitier
it looked good, the car was cool, kurt russell is great in it, some of the women in it are ridiculously sexy.
i've erased all the bad bits from it from my mind, and it's now a fantastic 45 minute movie
They're pretty much samplers of other films and shouldn't really be taken too much more seriously than that/ Good fun.
To answer a couple of the common criticisms in this thread, Death Proof doesn't work that well as a longer standalone film it's true - as part of Grindhouse though, the short version zips along nicely as part of the overall collection. Kill Bill is available to watch online in the combined version that he put together for Cannes a few years ago - it works WAY better in the original order, with the story arc actually building rather than just being a shuffled collection of chapters.
Also, his chapter in Four Rooms is probably the worst.
Kill Bill Vol 1
(Natural Born Killers)
Kill Bill Vol 2
Kill Bill Vol 3 announced - WHY?
I think Lucy Lui is great.
Never seen Jackie Brown or Death Proof.
Kill Bill Vol 2
Kill Bill Vol 1
I think he's increasingly fallen into the trap of making films that look great in trailers, with their abstract images and minute-long, narrative-less form, but are appalling, lazy and overlong as full features.
Think I missed that one.
putting KB vol 1 and 2 miles apart like they're not the same film
Second has a completely different feel and tone to it.
second is a spaghetti western.
(only seen it once)
you don't like anything that much though tbf
and that shit one with the cars
apart from a couple of brief glimmers of talent, can we all agree that Brad Pitt is a fucking terrible actor? Good, good.
no way! he was great in eh... hang on... I'm sure I'll think of one
one of those people where the quality of their acting doesn't actually matter.
where were you when I needed this
Death proofs the worst one
Pulp Fiction (was good)
Inglorious Basterds (was OK)
the rest of them
is by some distance his best film. You people are crazy.
Everything lately has been highly watchable for Hollywood but if you look at his IMDB in order he has done nothing of great note since appearing in Little Nicky.
flawed as fuck tho
Yeah he's made a few duds but when reservoir dogs came out it was exciting, he kick started a dying genre and for a while made films dangerous.
So much that he brought is still massively influencing films now and I for one doff my hat.
Incidentally the opening credit role in reservoir dogs is fucking super cool!!
By far his worst film. By FAR
it's not his worst film but yeah, it was pretty bad
are amazing. The rest not so much.
yeah, you're right actually
hated the rest of it though
Kill Bill Vol 1
Kill Bill Vol 2
Inglorious Basterds is top
Pulp Fiction is ok
Django unchained is appalling
Couldn't be arsed to see Deathproof...
sincerity is the highest level of trolling
Jackie Brown, Deathproof/Planet Terror, Inglorious Basterds (mainly for Brad Pitt's Italian accent)
Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Django (almost slips into terrible)
Kill Bill both volumes
my, it was quite the movie. I loved the way it ended, I was expecting to have to sit through at least another 10 minutes.
Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs and both Kill Bills (although I prefer the first one overall).
I find Jackie Brown quite boring - I first saw it at the cinema and persuaded myself to buy it on VHS when it came out, but I got about 15 minutes in before switching off. can only remember the main song and the SLJ sales pitch about guns (not unsurprisingly).
Having said that Django Unchained could be trimmed down a bit, but I thoroughly enjoyed a second viewing and would watch again. It's more engaging and Waltz is amazing in it. Definitely didn't need QT cameo though - jeez "mate"!
I preferred Planet Terror to Death Proof - I need to watch both again to refresh but I do remember enjoying all the banter in the bar and the car chase at the end within DP.
Need to watch Basterds again but I remember liking it at the time.
Basically, someone needs to get him to stop aiming for three hour epics and/or get him to write more scripts a la True Romance (which is awesome).
