Quentin is a little over the top with his "film is magic, and digital is awful" trip.

You're living in the past, dude.

Elaborate, I feel like he has always been a great director. Some of his writing isn't the best, but watch Jackie Brown and tell me he's not an excellent director.

he's a one trick pony that relies on the same gags to draw an audience. not saying he's "bad" but i am saying he's overrated.
>>
>>720933283
Well i suppose it is his writing I've had most issues with. His movies seem to try to grasp for a higher level of intelligence than he's able to achieve. And then they all fail and fall down to being loved by middle and high schoolers. Plus he goes over the top on gore to the point it take s me out of the film and destroys the immersion for me.

I can see that, he does seem to miss on a lot of his attempts to write something amazing. The Gore can be a tad distracting. His choices for cast, and the way he shoots scenes though are fantastic.

Made nothing but cheesy overrated movies for boring old people. Little to no character development, his story lines took forever to unfold and when they did they disappointed, anti climactic, terrible casting, atrocious cinematography. Amateur at best, he's basically film 101 if they introduced film class to grade schoolers. Inb4 but hurt fanboys. Name one decent movie by this clown. Protip, cant

Tarintino's films are some of the best made in terms of raw entertainment value, comedy, and originality.
The Hateful Eight, Django Unchained, Kill Bill and Pulp Fiction are all objectively well made movies. They have excellent effects, characters and plots, and they'll be classics forever.
If you don't like them you're probably just nitpicking.

Really like him and his movies, but I think people give him too much credit for his artsy style. I think it's sometimes a bit too forced.

lets not forget how shitty he is as an actor

its hard to reply to this thread. any director i can think of has done atleast one movie thats tickled my fancy

Must be the most overrated piece of shit
>>
>>720936823
This. His earlier stuff was about the story and telling it in interesting ways. Now it is just the same thing again and again to show off his gimmick
>>
>>720936730
Tarantino is a GREAT writer. No one writes dialogue like he does. His plots, however, are getting derivative. He needs to start working with someone
>>
>>720934148
He once said that he think of the gore as a cartoonish element, so it's supposed to work as a reminder that you're watching a movie.

he can make 3 hour films about farts for all i care, that film is epic and his style is quite unique.

I think that only Grand Budapest was bad for being way too artsy and having crummy dialogue, but every other one was spectacular and not overrated at all.

>>720936849
True. Also consider that every objectively bad thing he does in a movie is justified by his fanbase saying that he "surely did that on purpose cuz is a genius".

whats edgier than hating on tarantino? You guys are cool as shit!
>>
>>720936893
This.

To be honest, I rarely even know who the director is before I see a movie. I just wach the movies that look like they might interest me. I've never seen a movie solely because it has a certain actor or director or producer.

Great director.

If he didn't diddle his kids he'd be held in higher regard right now. Still a great director.

Hell, Polanski doped and then ass-fucked a 13 year old. And he gets nominated for Oscars.
>>
>>720937132
No, I really think story is very important. His movies are really good at showing real-life themes in outlandish ways, but Grand Budapest was just a stale cake covered in pretty icing.

"His plots"

Take any Tarantino movie and you will notice that the plot could be always summarized in "There's a guy who tries to get his revenge for the entire plot and he will made it in the ending after some random splatter scenes and dialogues who are so silly and unrealistic to be considered funny and good"
>>
Most of the people in this thread seem to have a hard time understanding the difference between words "bad" and "overrated"...amazing.

Out of his big movies Reservoir Dogs was about the only film he made that made any kind of sense.

Pulp Fiction required a lot of alcohol and weed.

Kill Bill was what Mortal Kombat should have been.

>>720938888
That movie was made early on in his acting career. Do you really think he'll just stop whatever oscar bait he's working on just to go fuck around with Warwick Davis for a few months? For a sequel only 90s kids would bother to go see in theaters? Both of them have moved on to bigger better shit that pays more.

Are you kidding me? Reservoir dogs is basically finding the guy who betrayed his robbery mates for getting revenge.

You are half-right with Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown:

Pulp fiction has many revenge scenes like the "WHAT?!" or Marcellus and Butch pursuit sequence that are basically half the movie. The other half is utterly ridicolous and silly dialogues about random splatter episodes that just happened or are going to happen.
Same with Jackie Brown like the "car" scene or the ending, with the only difference that Jackie Brown is more boring and has a scene in which a guy shoots someone for having talked too much.

True romance is just a random b-movie.

Think that's the thing with most Tarantino movies. Everyone has scenes they love and remember, even if they didn't find the movie that great.
