i dont know....i guess you gotta be a stoner to love these movies or something.......cant believe someone cant like Pulp Fiction..


The reason i respect this directors is cuz they're not affraid to try something different....to me all of Quentin Tarantino's movies are must owns and classics!

Reservoir Dogs..
Pulp Fiction..
Jackie Brown..
Kill Bill 1 and 2

even movies he's helped write/produce/act,like...

From Dusk Till Dawn...(directed by Robert Rodriguez)
Desperado...(directed by R R)
Natural Born Killers..


Whatever,im sure im gonna like it....especially on weed



To be fair, I'm still trying to calculate the astronomical amount of weed I'm going to have to smoke for this steaming pile to be worth seeing...it looks like the worst crap from Tarantino so far.In fact, I've noticed that each of his movies seem to be getting progressively more ridiculous.Look back at "Pulp Fiction" and "Reservoir Dogs" and there's at least a hint of realism in the overblown storylines.Fast forward to the "Kill Bill" movies and it's just become cartoonishly over-the-top (not saying that I disliked "Kill Bill", but it drew a line in the sand with how ridiculous a movie I can enjoy).But in slight contradiction to this, I still like "4 Rooms" the most out of his movies (mostly because I also work at a hotel and can relate to that weirdness...and I know, he only helped direct/write/produce that).My Zong has it's work cut out for it.

In response to the M. Night Shyamalan comment earlier, I don't think that was a great director doing a bad movie or two as much as it was a God-AWFUL director finally getting exposed.Sorry, I just have always thought his movies were utter crap.

Tarantino knows how to pull it off.....the movies can be as cheesey as they are,but if you have the right actors they can make it great........thats what i liked about Kill Bill movies,the fact that they didnt take themselves seriously.It was really a real life Anime cartoon movie,and its one of my favorites.If you're looking for realizm then this movie is not for you,but if you know what to expect then you're in for a treat

I agree, you had to know what to expect (and furthermore,be a casual samurai movie/kung fu movie fan) to fully appreciate what Tarantino did with Kill Bill 1&2.

I loved the Kill Bill Movies, the allusions in both movies were a nice treat.

I was digging Lone Wolf and Cub (Shogun Assassin) playing at the end.

Mane,i'll take the Pepsi challenge with my homegrown against your florida bud anyday.........but yea...sometimes i prefer the weaker "dirt" stuff....but not "crap crap" stuff....i dont always feel like smoking out of a bong..

you cant roll a blunt of hydro and smoke it by yourself when you're bored,you can,but its not smart to waste so much good bud....but with the cheaper stuff you can chillax and its like if you're smoking a cigarette or something..

haha its on then man.. one day, ill get my finest green, and you'll get your finest green, and we will see whats up.. itll be like the mini cannabis cup

and i disagree, you can roll a blunt of hydro by yourself, you just don't have to smoke the whole thing.. i'll roll a blunt and be chiefin on it for a few days.. light it up, take 3 or 4 puffs, put it out for later.. regs dont do a damn thing for me anymore but make me feel kind of/semi stoned for about 20 minutes and leave me with a headache.. its almost pointless for me to even smoke it anymore.. MY bud though.. its that one hit wonder, and it lasts for hours.. i took a swat from my pipe on the way to work this morning at 8:45, and now 4 hours later im still like

seems like every thread turns into a weed conversation..

getting back on topic (to continue the flame war)
tarantino does nothing original. if you see his commentaries or interviews he blatently states he rips off asian cinema...

most of the stuff that we americans think is cool and new has been done in asia around 10 years ago..

Then at least he did a good job bringing Asian film influence to the popular public eye... At least better then the films themselves did...

I think QT should be sen for what he really is... A pretty good director (with a huge freakin' headlol), but he's no Kubrick...

He has made his own nitch in the movie industry and works in that nitch pretty well...

What's with all this 'un-realistic' talk? It's a fictional movie, it doesn't have to realistic to be enjoyable... It's a horror movie for crying out loud... When's the last time one of those have been realistic (and good)?

I'm looking forward to it. I like Tarantino and Rodriguez, so I'm expecting this to be good too.

Just saw it last night and it was great...

It's weird and cheesy and funny and violent...

There's a lot of stuff that you don't get from most movies like the fake trailers for "Machete", "Thanksgiving", and "The Secret Were-Woman of the SS"...

With the whole double feature thing it was just different from seeing other movies... Inbetween people would laugh and talk a little... It just felt like a different experience...

That and Rosario Dawson is soooo sexy...
