While I'm glad we never got his version of Casino Royale, or indeed any other Bond film by him, he's definitely a distinctive voice in cinema.
He is. However, I think his writing is his best talent. Like I said, I would trust him to write a Bond Continuation Novel. For now, bring on The Films of Rick Dalton (his supposed next book)!
In other news, London will see the premiere of a "Quentin Tarentino immersive musical" this summer :
The title will say something to those who watched Pulp Fiction : Fox Force Five & The Tyranny of Evil Men. Could be interesting.
Another book, possibly?
I also like some of his other work like including True Romance, but I was never particularly fond of Natural Born Killers (controversial opinion, perhaps?)
I cannot disagree with that. Landa is such a delicious role for Walt but the entire architecture of this scene is nothing short of perfect. Tension is built in ways few films still can these days.
👍🏻 👍🏻 👍🏻
Interesting. For me it's the complete opposite. There are many directors I value just as much, but very few of them are as rewatchable as Tarantino's.
I think this is his greatest film; the bromance showed an elite storyteller, in the prime of his powers, who really made a passionate, sweet and believable story about friendship.
Yeah, I dare say it's underappreciated. Maybe even a little misunderstood. It's labeled as a celebration of 60s Hollywood and Sharon Tate (which it also is), but at it's heart it is as you say a story about friendship, and a touching one at that.
This is true. I highly recommend his novelization for it. It’s different from the movie, in a good way. Another reason that I think he should really give Double V Vega a book.
Inglorious Basterds is his most overrated. After that great tense opening scene, never lives up to that greatness again. Only when Hans Landa is on screen does it come close. I’ve said it before, it’s similar to another 2009 film: Avatar. Both writer/directors getting lost in their egos. At least QT wrote something original. While I like IB, it’s honestly my least favorite QT movie.
Jackie Brown is underrated, it makes you think about who’s playing who. Some of the best acting from his movies.
Some actors that I would like to see QT work with are: Jeff Bridges, Pierce Brosnan, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ralph Fiennes, Adam Sandler, Javier Bardem, Michael Shannon, Judy Greer, Jessica Chastain, Ryan Reynolds, Anne Hathaway, Gal Gadot, Ana de Armas, and Saoirse Ronan just to name a few. If he can fit them into The Movie Critic, or if he doesn’t retire afterwords these are some interesting people for him. NOT Scarlett Johansson or Jennifer Lawrence! Too overexposed, and one-note.
One of the few directors that have me excited with anticipation when they have a new film project...
Same here, any project that he's directing and particularly writing, has my interest. His work is the equivalent of a new Batman, Superman, Bond or Holmes story being told.
Like @peter mentions above, the opening of Inglourious Basterds is, to me as well, something of the best stuff put to film in a long time. That film was somewhat ruined on my first viewing when two couples sitting in the back row at the theatre started complaining about the lack of action and "all that damn talking" midway through the film – shortly before they exited the screening…
And on the subject of talking: dialogue is probably one of the things I love the most about Tarantino films. I could happily watch a Tarantino film that is just two characters talking about "stuff", in a diner, a car or whatever.
Jackie Brown - for me, it's his undisputed masterpiece. It's perfect in every way.

RIP Rick Dalton. I wonder if he was related to Timothy Dalton.
First the 60s, now the 70s, in alternate history.
Thankfully, hopefully they never work together.
It was a joke, conflating Tarantino with Tamahori because of the similarity in their last names.
