Hmmm… Now, to be honest, I kinda miss crime story Tarentino. The even bigger chinned fella than myself who brought us Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction and even Jackie Brown. That’s not to say that I don’t think Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 are 4 hours of a great 2 hour film or that Death Proof didn’t have a cool car chase after all the boring-ass dialog. And, yeah, I’m going to to see Inglorious Basterds because, darn it, I love going to the movies.
So! Quentin chatting about his fave movies since he first directed a feature in 1992 is pretty interesting… I love that he seems to be completely honest and doesn’t feel the need to try to select critical darlings or anything like that. Good ol’ QT.
Once I agree with: Boogie Nights (amazing movie all around in pretty much every cinematic way), Fight Club (still talking about this one — in fact, just had a discussion about it today), The Matrix (yeah, it changed the game — despite the lackluster sequels), Shaun of the Dead (simply one of my favorite good time movies), Unbreakable (brilliant, and not recognized like it should be — one of the best superhero movies of all time).
I think this video might be old, but it’s cool he did this. Reminds me of why I like good ol’ QT.
