What does everyone think of QT's movies? Kill Bill, Volume 1 is probably my favorite; the stylization is gorgeous, the characters are deep and interesting, and the whole thing is just fun. I also think that Jackie Brown is woefully underrated. It may not be as zany as Pulp Fiction, but the story is engrossing and very technically well done. Plus, Pam Grier is Pam Grier. Very Happy

I think Pulp Fiction is probably the most overrated movie of all time. It has a lot of great scenes, those 5 or 6 scenes people talk about constantly, but any scene that isn't one of those just drags for me, especially Bruce Willis' story. I think Kill Bill could have been great, but if you look at Vol. 1 and 2 as one movie, it's just too unbalanced for me. And Death Proof is just boring. Despite all this though, I consider myself a big Tarantino fan and will see what ever he puts out because of how kick-ass Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds were.

While he didn't direct it, my favorite's still true romance. Everything was perfect in the film, from spiderman and sonny chiba references to cousin balkhi being caught with a face full of coke to the shootout at the end. Beautiful movie.

Not a huge fan of Quentin Tarantino, I did like Pulp Fiction even though it is extremely overrated. I did not like Inglorious Basterds however, felt that film dragged on way to long. I prefer his acting to his directing, with his role in From Dusk till Dawn being very well acted and creepy like.

So overall hes a "meh" director to me.

I generally enjoy the majority of Quintin's movies (I didn't enjoy Jackie Brown at all, and quite literally fell asleep during it), but I find the man himself is kind of a douche. Is that odd?

Not odd, I like stuff from people (directors, musicians, etc.) who are douches.

He is really full of himself. I remember reading once that he said God put him on earth to make Pulp Fiction, and that God wouldn't let him die until that happened.

At least he's not as bad as Cameron.
