Overrated director that steals something and calls it his own. Tarantino's a live "library" of movies (he sees a lot of "unkown" movies), but he´s unable to think and criticize about them without trying to sound "cool" to the media. What he has, ladies and gentlemen, is not an appetite for making original films. What he has is an appetite for plagiarism. He's the king of plagiarism. His movies are simply a formula, just cheap tricks to sway emotions. When a director can get your emotions going making films the art, not entertainment (not to say it cant be entertaining art) without the cheap tricks like Kubrick, Fellini, Tarkovsky, early Coppola and Scorsese, Welles, etc. thats when they can be considered great if you ask me. Tarantino takes it up a step by copying plots and scenes to the point that he's remaking the movie.
I read somewhere that the scene in "Pulp Fiction" where Travolta is shooting up before going to pick up Mrs. Wallace was stolen shot-to-shot from a scene in Drugstore Cowboy. What does Tarantino "Um........it's an.....homage?" How disgusting.
Tarantino is an overrated plagiarist.
