Directed some (maybe not THE) best movies of the 90s, including Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, and Jackie Brown.
His genius and filmmaking talents were also carried into the 21st century, with Kill Bill Vol 1 and 2.
Who killed Nice Guy Eddie?
QT is a god at film making.
a very good director and actor who was cursed with a gigantic forehead, other than that he kicks ass
Also being from Tennessee hes not a racist and hasn't commited incest, isn't that a miracle.
I can use that line because i am from TN
The most polarizing figure in the history of cinema.
There are only two types of people in the world; those who enjoy Quentin Tarantino films, and those who don't.
He who cuts off ears, writes pulp fiction, and kills bill. Also writes epic speeches about Madonna songs and coffee...
Bow before the throne of Tarantino
Genius, bloody film director. And knows it. And tells you about it. And why not? He is the shit, after all. But people still whine about the gore in his films. They should do something else.
"I'm Quentin Tarantino. I'm the shit, if I do say so myself."
"Fuck you, and yo' egotistical ass" (EXPLODE)
Made the brilliant decision of promoting himself first. See for instance his commentary on TRUE ROMANCE, where he discusses in detail the conscious choices made in putting together his filmography. He's created a compelling public persona in the form of a tireless, foul-mouthed movie geek.
He also shamelessly loots other people's material, but given a pass, proving Van Gogh right that "an ounce of image is worth a pound of performance" (Compare with David Blaine).
To take an example at random, see for instance the famous adrenalin scene in the even more famous film PULP FICTION. As shot it is taken nearly word-for-word from a 70s Scorsese documentary on Steven Prince. Prince has all the details: medical dictionary, magic marker over the heart, the size of the needle, the jabbing motion, eyes popping open.
This is NOT homage. Homage is a way of honoring others, pedestalizing them. Tarantino is a self-promoter first. Go ahead and reference how the Duchess dances in ARISTOCATS, but taking someone else's story and shooting it almost exactly as described is just sorry.
Quentin Tarantino Fanboy: "Tarantino is tha muthafuckin' man, mah nigga! He killed off Hitler. I hear in his next movie he's gonna --"
You: Yeah, yeah, yeah, just give me twenty on 3.
A director with an ego bigger than both his forehead and chin combined. Usually throws together 2 hours of all of his favorite cinema in-jokes and pop culture references onto film and calls it a "movie".
