I'm Done With You

tarantinoWhen people used to ask me "what's your favorite movie," I automatically answered "Reservoir Dogs, and Pulp Fiction is my top five." I still love the films, but I'm done with Quentin Tarantino.

Let's face it: The guy is over. He hasn't done anything great in fifteen years. The last decent thing he did was "Kill Bill" and even that was pretty ordinary unless you're nutty for karate movies and you love to see Daryl Hannah over-act.

The most relevant thing he's done lately is appear on "American Idol." I know he's supposed to be all into "pop culture" and everything, but honestly... crap is crap. "American Idol" is the lowest of the low. The guy is trying to stir up popularity by being on a talent show

The guy was a big splash. A huge splash. His style influenced nearly every movie that came out after 1994. But then it was over, now he's completely hack. "Death Proof" was garbage, and that's all he could come up with in five years. And I'm so crazy about Rosario Dawson I would change my religion if she gave me a wet willy.

He revived John Travolta's career. Thanks. I'd rather kill myself than watch "Wild Hogs" again. He made a star out of Samuel L. Jackson, who screamed his way to the largest career box office grosses of all time. What the fuck was he doing in a Star Wars movie?

Peace out homie. You're dead to me. You're going to have to do something pretty special to win me (and I suspect a lot of your former fans) back.

Indeed, Death Proof was truly terrible.

lol. I think death proof and the zombie flick were awesome. I mean they were campy as hell but meant to be. I loved them.

I'm with you 100% on the disappointment of his career post Pulp Fiction...however, aren't you curious about Inglorious Bastards? If that sucks, them I'm with you, but I have to give him one last chance. I mean, a Tarantino war flick?! How can you not be excited for that.

I guess we'll see when it comes out in August. It already has some marks against it. It's a remake, it's spelled "Basterds" for some probably PC reason.

Like I said, it better be pretty damn special.

It will suck just like the last several things he's done.

Pulp Fiction = top 5 movies of all time.
Kill Bill = ordinary at best.
