    I wanted to see Inglorious Basterds but still haven't yet. Need to get on it.

    Knowing your criticism of Tarantino, there will be some things that'll annoy you, but overall, it's great, I think you'll like it, Christoph Waltz (who was in Django) is worth the admission alone.

    Nice. I was wondering who he was during Django. He's great.

    It's good to see your terrible clueless opinions also include this topic.


    Let me guess, you think Dicaprio is a good actor BECAUSE HE IS REAL GOOD AT SHOUTING, RIGHT?

    IMO Tarantino makes some of the most consistently entertaining films of the past two decades. I know many rip him for stealing/re-hashing. And those complaints are legitimate. And plenty of people just can't stand his personality (also legitimate). But none of that takes away from me enjoying the films themselves one bit.

    That's my thing with Tarantino. I have seen ALL of this stuff before. He just dusts off Blaxploitation and 70's Drive-In and adds monotonous dialogue. Not that that's not the exact same thing I would do if I made movies - but I wouldn't expect to hailed as a cinematic genius for doing such.

    Bollocks, Tarantino is a genius when it comes to dialogue, Inglourious Basterds alone had 3 of the best dialogues in film...the opening scene, the tavern scene and the strudel scene, I remember my palms were sweaty watching those scenes for the first time. If he wasn't so popular, you'd be praising the hell out of him lol.

    I don't know if this is just trolling, but Dicaprio is a GREAT actor, and has been since he was like 7, people just hate on him 'cuz he's a pretty boy. Still won't get that Oscar though.

    :cool2: From 1997 (Can get on DVD) Cop Land:



    The film Sylvester Stalone thinks killed his career. It was actually the best role he ever had. Amazing low budget movie. Takes place in a fictional NJ town just outside NYC. Most of the population are NYPD and there is shady stuff going on. Amazing cast who all took a big pay cut to work the film.
