I agree, but then I think Tarantino is very over rated. Reservoir Dogs is the only movie of his that I thought was good and would watch again.share
I always go to bat for Tarantino's first 3 films, everything after that I would probably say yes as most of his films are flawed to hell and far too overlong.
But Pulp Fiction is a masterpiece, I think his first three films are. Deserving of all the love it gets. But that's just me.
I always say Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction are fantastic and Inglorious Basterds is well worth watching for so many great scenes with Col. Landa. The other QT movies aren't must-sees like these 3 that's for sure.share
I can understand hate for QT but he has some great (if flawed) movies. Pf is one of them. I think OP probably also hates other QT films that he hasn't even seen yet.
Res Dogs: A
4 Rooms: his part B, the movie C+
Jackie Brown: B+
Death Proof: C-
Inglorious Basterds: B-
True Romance: A
Nat Born Killers: B-
QT has many problems that bother me. Several of his more recent films would score higher with me if it weren't for some of his directing/writing quirks.
I'm a Generation X'er, and I saw PF when it was in the theaters and I hated it. I had an uncle who was a Boomer and he said you had to be older to appreciate the references. Whatever.
I loved True Romance, Inglorious Bastards, and Django. I pretty much hate everything else. I can't say that Reservoir Dogs isn't a good film, I just didn't like it for the gratuitous violence.
yeah, mostly just wins for styleshare
overrated = overused
