|Well spuds has "no motivation or interest in things" (his words) so basically just treat everything he writes as complete and utter horseshit.|
Give me £5 I'm worth it.

QT's great; Jackie Brown's pretty much perfect imo.|
Kill Bill 2 was shit though. Feature length outtakes reel.
I thought it looked shit from the trailers I've seen in the cinema.|
Literally nothing about it stood out to me at all.
|"Pfft, another western?! About slaves? Doesn't stand out from the crowd at all!"|
In a interview with QT about this film, he gave out some info about a future project |
"While doing press for his new release Django Unchained, director Quentin Tarantino revealed plans for a future project titled Killer Crow, an Inglourious Basterds spin-off to be set in 1944 after Normandy.
"I don't know exactly when I'm going to do it, but there's something about this that would suggest a trilogy," Tarantino told The Root (via Salon). "My original idea for Inglourious Basterds way back when was that this [would be] a huge story that included the [smaller] story that you saw in the film, but also followed a bunch of black troops, and they had been f--ked over by the American military and kind of go apes--t. They basically -- the way Lt. Aldo Raines (Brad Pitt) and the Basterds are having an "Apache resistance" -- [the] black troops go on an Apache warpath and kill a bunch of white soldiers and white officers on a military base and are just making a warpath to Switzerland."
The filmmaker continued, "So that was always going to be part of it. And I was going to do it as a miniseries, and that was going to be one of the big storylines. When I decided to try to turn it into a movie, that was a section I had to take out to help tame my material. I have most of that written. It's ready to go; I just have to write the second half of it."
Tarantino added that Killer Crow "would be [connected to] Inglourious Basterds, too, because Inglourious Basterds are in it, but it is about the soldiers."

|He always says stuff about future sequels and spin-offs. Still waiting for the Vega Brothers film linking Pulp Fiction to Reservoir Dogs, and Kill Bill 3 ans 4 (none of which will happen).|
|He said he was going to do the most erotic film ever with Uma Thurman. He still might.|
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
|KB3's been categorically denied now by QT, I think.|
|Saw it on Christmas day, it's a great film.|

|Gods Tarantino is a nob. Just seen him on Channel 4 news.|
A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.
|That's what happens when you take an intolerable film-school wanker and spend 20 years telling him he's the worlds greatest visual artist.|
Except he never went to film school.|
Still a nob though

|Film school wanker is an outlook though.|
I think Jackie Brown is one my my favourite films ever. A great plot (obviously, it being an Elmore Leonard plot), fantastic performances and classic dialogue. Just a brilliant heist movie.|
On the other hand, I just didn't see the point to Kill Bill at all. It probably doesn't help that I love a good martial arts film, while as far as I can tell, Kill Bill is a piss take of a bad martial arts film. It's got nothing that makes a QT film great - plot, dialogue or especially performances, and the fight scenes seemed to lack a lot of the humour and grace I enjoy. Never bothered with part 2, but if you guys are telling me it's worse, dead god, it must be awful.
But other than that, the man can do no wrong in my book. Very much looking forward to this.

|Django Unchained is great. Calling QT a film school wanker is kind of off. The man really really really knows his stuff and it shows in his films. Knowing fuckloads about film theory and history -and- being able to apply it to films is an exceptionally rare talent. His problem is that he's massively over-enthusiastic about it, which makes him come off as a self-adulating mong in most interviews. You need to catch him on a downslope, when he's exhausted and drained.|
|Yep I loved Kill Bill, and Pulp Fiction. I might even consider KB my favourite (series) of films ever. Not such a fan of Basterds. Nice to see a new film.|
|I agree 100% with everything Kermode says about Tarantino.|
If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

Really enjoyed DU. |
Hilarious in parts and some of the tension building scenes are fantastic.
|Fucking great movie. Leo Cap is tremendous. Perfectly balanced and excellently paced.|
|Watched Jackie Brown last night for first time. Loved it.|
