Pretty decent ratings NR but definitely 3/5 is to low for Jackie Brown. I haven't seen Basterds yet so I can't rate it. Does he get any credit for Hostel? Also the trailer for Machete?

he only produced (gave $) Hostel. And Machete is by Eli Roth, not Tarantino.

isn't it by robert rodriguez? i mean, danny trejo is in every one of his movies.

at least the machete feature film will be rodriguez's, i guess.

jackie brown is one of my favorite films ever; love the mixed up plot, love the characters, the acting, the shots, the music. i guess it's hard to relate for some people since it doesn't have gore or a lot of action and the central characters are older types and (mostly) black.

underrated movie.

----

by the way, last two i saw were monty python and the holy grail (claaaassic!!) and --speaking of rodriguez-- once upon a time in mexico; it was entertaining, very tarantino-esque in that he took mexploitation (like quentin has with samurai, kung fu, blaxploitation, gangster, war, tracheotomy, etc. movies) and made it his own with a big budget and hollywood actors.

Look, I understand you think Quentin Tarantino is an overrated hack, but please stop referring to Reservoir Dogs as a City on Fire remake. It's very disrespectful to him and fans of that film (such as myself).

I see Tarantino sort of the same way as Radiohead in that both of them bring elements of the underground/avant garde to the mainstream, and mainstream music/film is all the better for it.

And From Dusk Till Dawn deserves at least a 7. I didn't even know there were sequels--seemed pretty conclusive to me.

*long rant deleted*

What's disrespectful is that Tarantino stole key scenes and dialogue from another movie and gave no credit to the director until he was threatened to be sued. I still like Reservoir Dogs, hence my rating. Regardless, the film is technically a remake -- it's a version of a film that's already been made. I am taking a guess you haven't watched City on Fire, nor has most Tarantino fans (though, honestly, most probably wouldn't because they don't want to read subtitles, for whatever reason).

Either way, I am curious what exactly you find "Avant garde" about his work? Seems like he's just some dude in love with Hark, Lam, Scorsese, DePalma, Kar-Wai, Godard... nothing original at all, and certainly not as deep as any of the aforementioned directors. He's not bad, but the constant hero worship thrown at him is baffling. His work is just a bit too shallow for me, but I won't deny that he's done some entertaining stuff. He's a good exploitation director. And if he can get people into better films, then.. well.. that's respectable. I would have never have known about the masterpiece ALL ABOUT LILY CHOU CHOU if it wasn't for him, so I gotta give him that. That's about it, though.

It's really absurd how great Jon Jost is. I've only seen 7 of his 25 movies and they've all been 8's, 9's, with one 10. He has been directing for nearly 40 years and is pretty much unknown. Ridiculous. He's just mindblowing. HIGHLY reccomended.


Also, reccomend this..

officially comes out in a few weeks through criterion.

nice plot (somehow very similar to Scanners)
shot in a detached theatrical style


Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie but I prefer lots of lhis other work.


anyways,
watched Videodrome again last night. Sometimes I forget how great that movie actually is.
My favourite by him.


and I watched some Haneke movies lately
Funny Games (Austrian version)
6.5/10, one of his weakest

Das Weiße Band
8/10, good but overrated
