However, when I watch his films, he seems like someone who gets carried away with his inspirations to the point where he lacks depth or a distinguishing factor. It comes off as a rehash of things rather than something that was merely inspired by other films or whatever. Hopefully you know what I mean..


I'm with el Symbols. Give the man Pulp Fiction, at least. I can see how the rehash thing could be applied to his more recent stuff but while PF obviously has its influences I'd say Tarantino treated them in a pretty original way, at least at the time, and definitely compared with most of the countless films it influenced. The sense that it lacks anything distinctive now, may be the result of its style winding up in almost every gangster movies made after it. I like Pulp Fiction, Hard Boiled and Goodfellas a lot, but for their combined influence on recent gangster movies, I almost wish they'd never been made.
