    Just watched it again... pure genius. The writing directing and acting is all perfect. If you haven't seen it...do. If you have discuss....

    Ah, Tarantino's best work. Brilliant movie from equaly brilliant moviemaker. I wouldn't say it's the best movie ever, but it's definitely in say... top 15? Maybe even top 10? Yes, top 10 seems about right.

    Eli Roth's new movie that Quentin exec produced.

    At least that's why I'm assuming he's not getting blamed for Cabin Fever as well.

    Then again he exec produced the two From Dusk Till Dawn sequels also.

    Tarantino as a person, and interview can become quickly annoying as hell. His films, more often than not, are bloody brilliant.

    /me had a bootleg VHS workprint of Pulp Fiction me and the roomie watched 27 times in addition to the 5 theater trips I made. Aww the good old days before DVD and comic show dupe VHS's for sale of all the good kung fu movies and illegal bootlegs.

    Never heard of it...
    I do agree though, in interviews he can easily get annoying as hell. Fantastic movies though. Kill Bill I thought was a bit too contrived though.
    Without a doubt Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are his best works.

    Eh it,s an alright movie, I don't like the way it jumps around.

    I liked Dusk till Dawn better, personally, followed by the over the top, horrible over acting Kill Bill series

    IMDB information:

    So he's like one of 8 whatever-producers... It's hardly his movie.

    Co-producer title means shit. He could simply meet with the director for a lunch and say "Hey, wouldn't it be cool if that guy strangled that other guy with his shoelaces instead of his belt"... His advice gets accepted and BAM - he earned himself a title of co-producer. And don't forget, MANY producers would try to attract people to see their movie by stamping Tarantino's name on the co-producers list.

    As for his interviews and attitude, I honestly don't give a shit. He's not selling himself, he's selling his movies. As long as they're well done, he can be whatever kimd of jerk he likes.

    That's BTW my attitude about a lot of things - people these days are paying more attention on whether they like a guy who delivers the product than on the product itself.

    The only QT movies (or movies he was even involved in) that I could stand are Jackie Brown, Sin City, and I think Natural Born Killers. I think he's a very overrated man. Just my opinion though. I hated Pulp Fiction, no matter how cool Sam Jackson and John Travolta were in it, the movie was crap. Again, IMO.
