I've been watching Quentin movies for years now and the way he captures characters and story lines blow my mind. I think anytime your the director and the writer it is easier to show what your going for, but either way I think his work is amazing and I don't understand people who dislike his movies.

What do you think about Tarantino?

I'm on board. I love them. I think Kill Bill Vols one and two are the best Movie and Sequel ever done. I can't say enough good about his movies.

I have to agree. I love his movies and I think he makes brilliant music choices. I always buy his movies and the soundtracks.

Violent. NO BS. Intense. R Rated. Won't sacrifice artistic freedom for a rating. Gives you your $$ worth.
If you love those things he's your guy along with Walter Hill.

Everything he has ever done has been gold. He delivers uniqueness in every single project. His dialog is always superb. He makes his movies not caring what the mainstream wants or thinks.

But, I can understand those not liking his movies. They arent for everyone.

I love his movies, but especially the ones he does with Robert Rodriguez. They are deffinately off the beaten path, and acquired, but they are for me! I even like his low budget ones like the new one "Sukiyaki Western Jango".

I don't mind violence but I don't like most of his stuff. Kill Bill, Pulp Fiction ok. But he produced Hostel, Hostel II. Yuck. I'm not sure how many truly new ideas are out there anyway but even if his all stuff really was unique it doesn't make it good. And while this doesn't really matter I'm going to say it anyway because if he was a woman it would be remarked on everytime "her" hame came up - he's really quite unattractive.

Tarantino's work has been said to be style over substance; too much self-consciously hip set-piece and not enough introspective character building.
But *what* style!
Uma Thurman in her yellow track suit, slicing through the snowflakes. (Kill Bill.)
DeNiro toking with Bridget Fonda. (Jackie Brown.)
Samuel Jackson getting medieval (Pulp Fiction.)
I love his soundtrack choices, as well.
The thing is, so much of Tarantino's movies are homage paid to other films: performances, director's choices, etc.
I pick up on some of this stuff, but I have not seen enough to know all of it.

Style over Substance is fun to look at, even if it doesn't change your life. Sometimes it's fun to just go to the movies & look.
