And +1 to what Pennglock said about Tarantino's 'dialogue'. It's just nonsensical banter -- the musings of a know-nothing -- a stream of consciousness of an unconscious writer. If it weren't coming from someone's mouth on screen it wouldn't ever be mistaken for actual dialogue. But his kind of nonsense is now regarded as some kind of standard for writing by audiences that have never read or heard anything better and can't distinguish the good from the bad anyway. It stands out as different from the usual Hollywood scripts and simply for that such people regard it as superior.
If QT didn't make big grossing, big budget films he'd probably be regarded a bit differently. I think he is grouped in with the big budget clown car super hero films and its undeserved. I do wish he'd try a film without any violence. Lets see his range.
BTW, I hear there is a Kill Bill Vol. 3 in the works.
QT wrote True Romance, there seems to be pretty wide acclaim for that script.
