>The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
That isn't surprising. Tarantino seems like the person that would enjoy trash just because it's stylish.

Whenever I see a top list that stops at 1970 it tells me that they are unable to develop opinions without the benefit of historical consensus. I actually think plebantino's list is a bit better even if it is similarly myopic just of a different era.
>>
>>64509548
Delete this.

Looks like QT didn't go to films, he went to flicks

This is a strange, meritless opinion.


Both good lists, both great fans of the medium.
>>
>>64509649

Lmao
>>
>>64509590
Yes, we must all sing the praises of that flashy Italian garbage completely lacking in substance and decency. I can't think of a set pictures that better demonstrate every negative quality of those people than the meatball westerns.
>>
Rolling Thunder is a snoozefest
>>
>>64509649
Looks like he was honest. PTA picked films that PTA rates.

You're doing great.

Yes, and believe it or not, Tarantino has had a lot of influence in shaping people's valuation of 70s film.

>>64509687
No, it's a good point that reveals an intellectual cowardice. Tarantula's autism makes him more confidently opinionated than PTA.
>>
>>64509569
>Whenever I see a top list that stops at 1970 it tells me that they are unable to develop opinions without the benefit of historical consensus

I feel the same way. It just reeks of

>>
>>64509863

>I don't watch old movies, they're pretentious and boring
>>
>>64509885
You're missing the fact that Tarantino has the oldest film listed out of the two of them. He just isn't afraid to go past the 70s.
>>
>>64509795
>Tarantula's autism makes him more confidently opinionated

You're judging someone's level of confidence in their opinion based on their top 10 movies? kek
>>
>>64510170
Ever seen interviews with PTA? He's so wormy and noncommitted to everything he says
>>
>>64509479
>no Ophuls
What the fuck, PTA?
>>
>>64509569
Have you considered the possibility that some people may genuinely enjoy the aesthetic of pre-70s movies?
>>
>bad news bears

cucktino does it again!
>>
>>64510429
At the exclusion of everything from the last 50 years? Why would you be a filmmaker if all the best films stopped being made fifty years ago?
>>
>>64510293

Some artists are quiet.

holy fuck Tarantino is pleb as fuck

Like there aren't movies from the past few decades which already enjoy consensus and status from film critics that they could safely name.

Typically filmmakers enjoy older movies and directors because the further away you step from something the easier it is to spot its trends and developments. You have the perspective of historical context that simply isn't there for newer movies, and if you want to work on the medium that's valuable. It's the same reason why most good painters, writers and musicians tend to be more concerned with their past influences than with their contemporaries.
>>
>>64510518
Why would all the musicians today constantly make shitty music influenced by 70s and 80s disco, funk and R&B if that was decades ago?

Art is all about finding a tradition to inherent m8
>>
>>64510518
That's why it's called a personal best, idiot.
>>
>>64509479
I enjoy all of these, save for Bad News Bears and Dazed and Confused.
>>
>>64509742
Fucking kill yourself. It's a masterpiece. A beautiful and complex work of art.
>>
>>64511842
Are you serious?

It's basically what Tarantino's movies are without the edginess and cinematography. A boring exploitation revenge movie.
>>
>>64509548
good luck with your down syndrome

both surprisingly pleb list although Tarantino's is plebier
>>
>>64509548
2/10, try harder
>>
>>64509479
Both have good shit on their lists. That being said PTA's list gives me a bigger hard-on than QT's, tbph.
>>
>>64509479
>Sorcerer
not the original Wages of Fear

what a hack.
>>
>>64509479

PTA is patrician confirmed
Tarantula is reddit confirmed
>>
>>64512829

They're not trying to impress anonymous poseurs on a Burmese dry cleaning board.
>>
I heard somewhere that PTA's favorite movie is Network (1976), but it's not on his list. Where did OP get these lists? Any source?

Sorcerer is better than Wages of Fear

He's also an enormous Demme fan, and i'd imagine, Scorsese. This shot from After Hours reminds me of him, amongst other stuff

>There’s a story that when Paul Thomas Anderson was once asked which three directors had influenced him the most, he replied, “Jonathan Demme, Jonathan Demme, and Jonathan Demme.” In his director’s commentary for Boogie Nights, Anderson called Demme his “greatest influence style-wise.”


http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2015/04/14/jonathan_demme_close_up_supercut_shows_what_pt_anderson_and_wes_anderson.html
>>
>"My filmmaking education consisted of finding out what filmmakers I liked were watching, then seeing those films." [...] These are Mr. Anderson's favorite films that are a part of the Criterion family and they were taken from various interviews that are available to read at: Cigarettes & Red Vines:The Definitive Paul Thomas Anderson Resource.

So some level of conjecture I guess, but still interesting.

Just recently watched Something Wild, which was really great. It handled all those tonal shifts so deftly. And the chemistry between the leads was all the better because it developed subtly and gradually through the movie, rather than happening immediately.

Also, major props to PTA for mentioning Robert Downey Sr. Putney Swope is fucking amazing.

>>64513180

great contribution

>>64513336

I've not seen it but will certainly check it out.

Interesting that there's so much noir from PTA. Something tells me that he was asked this during or before filming Inherent Vice.
>>
>>64513424
I might have to check out 'Homicide'. Looks good.
>>
Taxi Driver was just weird. Good thing the end was violent or I'd have thrown a fit
