Anything with Julia Roberts.

Anything even remotely involving Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, or Spike Lee.


I'll agree with you on the first two, but on that last point, you probably named 3 of my favorite directors of the past 30 years. Spike is pretty beat-you-over-the-head with the points he drives home, but Inside Man, 25th Hour, and He Got Game are all winners in my book. Anderson has a pretty affected look to all his movies, and if that puts you off I can understand. Tarantino, however, is probably the most surprising name here. I feel like he has decent stories, pretty good characters, and probably the best dialogue in movies today. What don't you like?

Do the right thing is one of my favorite movies. I think Spike Lee is kind of an asshole, but I love his films. Crooklyn is amazing.

+1 Empire, total crap IMO, don't know why people like it.

Tarantino...total crap. And I was a huge fan in the 90s, but now that I look back, Reservoir and Pulp were the only two Tarantino flicks worth a shit. I used to enjoy "Tarantinoesque" dialoge, now, I avoid movies like that at all costs. Quentin, you may think you're too cool for school, but I got news for you buddy....you're...not.

javyn's opinion is not valid

LOL why because I thought Alien Resurrection was dumb?

I was never into the Tarantinoishness of his movies.

I gotta give him cred for Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, both were excellent, but Jackie Brown on was downhill.
post #2108 of 14734
I gotta disagree with ya right there - Jackie Brown is excellent, but that was the last decent Tarantino flick. Maybe he got to be too obsessed with toe sucking or something, but these days his name is a guarantee that the movie sucks.

i like tarantino quite a lot. the kill bill movies are some of the few movies i will watch any time they are on. not as good as his earlier works, but i cant peel away from them. they are awesome.

well, it seems these days the production companies just like to associate him with whatever they can. i doubt he has much to do with a lot it, just collects money. and lets not forget four rooms. that movie was awesome. yes i know he only directed 1 room.

as to recent work, he directed death proof, which i liked, but i know most did not. and dont forget, it was supposed be that corny B type movie, thats what they were trying to make.

and then Inglourious Basterds which was awesome.

he has only actually directed 8 full length films to date:

2009 Inglourious Basterds

2007 Grindhouse (segment "Death Proof")

2004 Kill Bill: Vol. 2

2003 Kill Bill: Vol. 1

1997 Jackie Brown

1995 Four Rooms (segment "The Man from Hollywood")

1994 Pulp Fiction

1992 Reservoir Dogs

I thought Kill Bill and Death Proof were unwatchable. The stuff that he is producer on is even worse. He went from being the next Scorcese to the next Corman.

Tarantino's greatest accomplishment will always be True Romance.

I agree about Death Proof. I turned it off just mintues into it.

I managed to make it through both Kill Bill, but they were silly and ridiculous.
