He should consider rehab first.

sigdiamond2000: Maybe there really is a god.


Why? Did Kate Beckinsale release a lesbian porno where she uses a strap on Charlize Theron? Cause if not there is no God

Well, I wish him the best with his vast fortune. Must be nice to retire while still young enough to enjoy it all.

"within the next 10 years."

nice one. Someone might retire at the age of 60. farking shocked over here.

meh, he's been going downhill since pulp fiction.

His claims that directors don't get better as they get older are demonstrably wrong. In his case they may be right.

Gee, how could anyone ever replace him?

EXEC: We need a new Tarantino.
YES-MAN: I'll find any director willing to kill off all the characters in their movies. All of them, all the time, in every film.
EXEC: Perfect, Jenkins, get on it.

/turned off Inglorious Basterds after he killed of Stiggler (the crazy guy in the tavern). Idiotic way of doing things, ugh...

people end up living in that one. Hugo was kind of doomed to die, despite having one of the best introductions in a film ever.

3/10.

You probably will get some bites. Next time, when trolling, try a little more specificity like:

"He's gone downhill since pulp fiction. Pulp Fiction blended a non-linear storytelling technique with unforgettable characters. Where is a character as interesting and as deep as Jules 'BMF' Winnfield? Beatrix Kiddo? I think not. And what the hell was with inglorious basterds?"

At last, our national nightmare will soon be at an end.

/kidding, I love Tarantino. Hope he completes the Kill Bill saga before he sets out to walk the earth
 
2012-11-15 02:19:26 PM  
It will be a poor copy of a much better retirement but will have an obscure 70's AM radio soundtrack and dialogue that doesn't come close to the way people actually talk.

/hack
 
2012-11-15 02:20:35 PM  
I guess Tarantino would quit when he ran out of genre films to copy.

/where's my Space Pulp Fiction in Space movie?
//do you know what they call a Big Mac on Regulus IV?
///I really liked Inglorious Bastards and wasn't disappointed that it was entirely unlike the trailer

Am I the only one a wee bit pysched for the release of Django unchianed and seriously considering plonking down $12 for "Man with the Iron fist" (love me some cheesy Kung Fu shiat)?

QT is going to retire like old rock gods retire...

Retire, get bored, create, retire again, need money, create, retire again...and so on.

Basically, it's just a way to get friggin' agents and producers off their backs.
Get some long-term chill time in.

Tony Scott directed that one. A Tarantino screenplay (which I hope he continues to do) but Quentin is sort of a two hit wonder, directorial speaking. There's Dogs, there's Pulp, and there's crap.

That's "Stiglitz".

Yeah, for someone who was supposed to be 100% cool under pressure he made some glaring tactical mistakes in the tavern, like stabbing the SS officer several times rather than shooting the enlisted people at the next table. The SS officer had already been shot at least twice and was less of a threat than the others despite his proximity.
 
2012-11-15 02:43:48 PM  
It's almost like he has one foot out the door.

He wasn't supposed to be cool under pressure. He is a 100% homicidal maniac hell bent on killing Nazis. He went apeshiat and it was hilarious. Overkill was a theme of sorts throughout the film.

He was supposed to be cool, actually. That's why he was depicted as calmly smoking a cigarette in his cell (despite the gunfire and so forth) when the Basterds first approached him. It's also why Hickox explicitly asked him about being calm and they had that conversation before they went into the tavern and Stiglitz said "I don't look calm to you?".

Besides, he could have killed even more Nazis if he had shot each of the enlisted people (as mentioned above) rather than stabbing the Major multiple times.

He's farking insane. That's a better explanation than he is 100% cool under pressure. The only reason he was there to begin with is that he brutally murdered officers in their sleep one night. Not systematically sabotaged the Nazi army thus allowing him to live and kill more Nazis. He was fine killing them in cold blood and accepted death.

Ebenator: What is all this about a Django trilogy?


he said IB and DU felt like the first two parts of a trilogy.
i havent seen django yet, but ill go ahead and guess he plays loose with history like he did in inglorious basterds.
means he could make a third movie that does the same.
 
2012-11-15 03:19:44 PM  
Vernita Green's daughter grows up and is "still felling raw about it" so she goes to look up Beatrice, who apparently is in the book. Just as she's about to move in for the kill, she's interrupted by BB. This thing writes itself.
Now you just have to write in parts for any survivors of the first movies and toss farking Danny Trejo in the mix, just because he perspires badassery.
Then shut up and take my money.

Tarantino is doing something fairly risky. Instead of an ironic, hipsterish homage to crummy '70s grindhouse fair, you may well end up just making actual crapfests with nothing whatsoever to recommend them, just like what you were aping. Inglourious Basterds is clearly an example of that happening, as are some of his other films. Besides, what Tarantino does is a schtick. He needs to think of something else soon, or he really should GTFO.
 
2012-11-15 03:31:54 PM  
I really liked Basterds. The scene where Waltz was interrogating the Frenchman was creepy as all get-out and well done. I was meg about Jackie Brown, but have liked the other movies, mostly.

//and is even a chick

That is probably the best scene I've seen in a movie theater. It was incredible and Christoph Waltz would have deserved his Oscar if he had only been in that part of the movie.

I wouldn't call it an apex so much as a plateau. The Iwo Jima movies were brilliant, as was Grand Torino and Million Dollar Baby. Even before then, too. He directed both The Outlaw Jose Wales and High Plains Drifter.

The dude has serious chops behind the camera.

So you don't think Pulp Fiction was his best film?
