    People like Hughes and Kubrick were completely socially retarded sociopathic mentalists. Dangerously so. You could say the same for Polanski, Allen etc etc.

    So yeah QT can be a bit of a nob. Who cares? He is an incredible filmmaker.

    Yeah, thought he was unfair toward that BBC reporter but essentially it doesn't affect my enjoyment of his films.

    Tbh he must get sick and tired of answering that same question for the last 20 years.

    He came across really well on the Graham Norton show.

    FCUTA!

    Yeah Can you imagine being asked the same question for 20 years and having to give the same answer? I get pissed off if someone asks me same question a few times lol so it's understandable he gets annoyed. Kill bill is one of my fave movies though 2nd was disapointing death proof was good but the grindhouse movie with it was an awful film but don't think he did that one

    seen him on c4 news too, what a cunt.

    you can tell he has a stupid nagging part in his brain, and is predisposed to getting his back up about stuff like this.

    he has been constantly quizzed about violence, and in light of these US shootings maybe even blamed for glorifying it, is sick of it, and he comes into the intervew primed with a 'see if they bring this shit up' attitude, then flys off the handle when triggered.

    pretty childish. he could at least diffuse it with something clever. then he turns round and says 'you're here to promote/advertise my film, lets get that clear!'

    would've cut the interview, d-bag. he couldn't even realise it was a news show, and not some gossip column.

    Saw it last night. One of the better Quentin Tarantino movies. I loved it up untill the last half hour or so. Christopher Waltz is brilliant (again).

    My only gripe with most of QT's movies are his detours in tone within the same movie, making them unbalanced. This happens mostly when he tries to do violent comedy. The whole 'Bear Jew' scene in Inglorious Bastards comes to mind for instance. Without those types of scenes his movies would improve tremendously.

    I remain convinced that Jackie Brown is still his best film. The most balanced and most 'real' protagonists.

    I like Jackie Brown, but it's the least QT like QT film. Perhaps that's why some like it, but for me it has none of the real flair or individuality of Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction, which are still his best imo.

    @Goodfella. Agree about that scene. It was funny in a very Blazing Saddles kind of way, but it was so weird to have it in this film!

    Also the shoot-out was really well done.

    Just saw it, liked it quite a lot!

    Two favorite bits:

    Tarantino's cameo with that 'trying to sound Australian but actually closer to South African' accent. Great bit with the dynamite too.

    And Samuel L. Jackson turning into Samuel L. Jackson.

    Yeah, when he started speaking my friends and I in SA all looked at each other in wonderment only to realize it was just a poor Australian accent. He really is a poor actor, but he's also the boss.

    It reminded me of the Australia episode of the Simpsons from way back.

    I am really tempted to head to the cinema to see this, but it would have to be a solo trip as the missus won't fancy it. Unless I can persuade a mate to see it, but westerns aren't really their thing.

    Tell them it's a southern then.
    I thought 'the accent' was an homage to Leo's AWFUL South African in Blood Diamond (bleck!!!)

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    He's not South African though he's from Zimbabwe.

    I've heard it's actually a pretty decent Zimbabwe accent. No idea if it actually is though.

    Fucking loved this, definitely up there with his best. Christoph Waltz should be in every film, ever.

    A friend of mine from the area said he did quite well.

    Saw this last night and really didn't enjoy it. It's well behind his first 5 films which are all classics. I just didn't give a flying fuck about Django and his wife or any of the other characters for that matter. I didn't REALLY hate Leo or Samual L. The plot was thin as fuck!

    However, I was abit drunk and will be rewatching on DVD when I can squirt at my leisure.
  • Deleted user 20 January 2013 08:53:23
    Pulp fiction
    R. Dogs
    Kill bill
    Django
    Kill bill 2
    Jackie brown
    Inglorious bastards

    In that order.

    I really enjoyed it. I thought it was remarkably restrained for a Tarantino film, at least until King gets shot and it all kicks off

    Speaking of which I really thought they could have ended the film with Django surrounded after the big gunfight. The last half hour could have been cut without losing anything.

    Except the big fucking house explosion and Candies slut sister getting blown away, worth an extra half an hour any day of the week

    A solid 8/10 from me.

    Christopher Waltz was just as regaling as ever, he gives conversations a real contextual weight with his chirpy tongue waggling. Bit like Christopher Walken and Attenborough should be locked in a sound booth and be made to recite everything ever.

    For the record I think Inglorious is his finest film.
  • Deleted user 20 January 2013 10:54:57
    Leo was exceptional as well. The scene with the skull was a powerful performance.

    Nerdy I know, but the first thing I wanted to do when I left the cinema was look up the action figures, only to discover that they had been discontinued due to complaints, and are being sold for a high price on Ebay. :(
