    1. Reservoir Dogs was a classic.

      Pulp Fiction was almost as good.

      Jackie Brown is underrated.

      Everything since then has been Tarantino fan-wanking to stuff from the 70’s. It’s entertaining, but it’s not on the level of his early stuff.

      • Except all of his movies are nods to the 60’s and 70’s…

        Inglorious Bastards – 8/10
        Death Proof – 5/10
        Kill Bill – 7/10
        Jackie Brown – 6/10
        Pulp Fiction – 10/10
        Resurvoir Dogs 10/10

        Definitely a better Director than Actor. He was horrible in Sukiyaki Western Django. Although he does better acting in his own films.

        • I think he regards the acting as more of a lark.

          Love Pulp & Reservoir simply from how they seemed to breathe new life into a beaten-to-death-with-a-lead-pipe genre.

          But Jackie Brown is probably his most fleshed-out, fully realized flick. Probably because it was adapted from an Elmore Leonard book where the character development was already done for him.

          • He’s definitely better when he has another writer to add extra dimension. After he stopped working with Roger Avary his work went downhill.

            Pulp fiction had all the pop culture references that Tarantino loves, but it also had characters that weren’t cardboard cutouts. They had motivations and all that fancy stuff.

            Kill Bill was a 2 dimensional revenge story. Fun to watch, but not really deep. It could have been edited down to one movie without losing too much.

            Death Proof was Quentin Tarantino spending two hours beating the audience over the head about how cool he thought it was to do a Vanishing Point homage.

        • I didn’t say they weren’t, but there’s a crucial difference between a nod and fanwank.

    2. I loved him in From Dusk till Dawn.

      • i watched that movie, with absolutely no idea what was coming. so the massive left turn it takes about halfway through caught me totally off guard. the entertainment value of that left from dusk till dawn as one of my favorites.

        • I had a similar experience watching the first Predator movie. I went to the movie not knowing anything about it. This was back in the stone age before the internet, before every tiny detail a movie was released before the script is written. I was late to the movie, so I arrived about the time Arnold and Carl Weathers were arm wrestling and eye fucking each other. So I thought it was just another Schwarzenegger action film, and then OH SHIT INVISIBLE LIZARD ALIEN STARTS KILLING PEOPLE.

          The movie was also great because it had the best acting I’ve ever seen from Arnold. Arnold had a look on his face like he had just shit his pants when he sees the predator. That was the most beleivable performance I’ve ever seen from him.
