  • @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I get what you mean. I did make a comment earlier that said I liked Inglouroius Basterds because it had very little swearing in it. And while the the Kill Bill movies didn't have much pervasive language just the dialog itself was silly and a little immature. Besides, Death Proof was more recent than Kill Bill and that had its fair share of swearing. Oh, and I should add that it's not the swearing that bothers me, it's how and where it's used that bothers me.

  • @SpaceCowboy -- Well, I can agree with that. I saw the new Predators and the language felt so....out-of-place - to say the very least. When I watched "Reservoir Dogs", I thought it felt like a low-budget film - the constant swearing and the "unique" direction derived from any kind of meaningful, if necessary scenes - but once the torture scene takes place, it takes a turn for the best.

    When you really think about it, the swearing was a big part of the story, if you know what I mean. These guys have every reason to show their anger and detest of the thought that their may be a "rat" in the group - the heist goes terribly awry, they get separated, each man for himself - one man gets shot and is lying there bleeding out. Quentin Tarantino wanted these guys to show a lot of anger, and what better way than to make them swear consistently?

    After the torture scene, everything just comes together. Not only is it one of my favorite scenes of all-time, but I felt it was very entertaining from then on. Am I the only person who absolutely loves the ending? While the beginning may have been interesting, but a little out-there, I like looking back on it - really good stuff.

  • @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx The swearing is fine when a character is angry or terrified. It's expected for someone to react by shouting obscenities. But when characters are being vulgar for fun it's disgusting and irritable. I don't even care if it moves the story along it just gets on my nerves. And I can't like a movie if it irritates and agitates me.

  • 1. Inglorious Basterds (his most focused work IMO)
    2. Pulp Fiction (doesnt need an explenation - i saw that 3 times in the theaters back in the day)
    3. Kill Bill vol 1 (brilliant and bloody)
    4. Kill Bill vol 2 (Looove the training scenes)
    5. Reservoir Dogs (Anyone who can write and entire movie in one location has my vote of confidence)
    5. Jackie Brown (Love the Elmore Leonard take - the man is a brilliant crime author altho i never got into his western novels - but i definatly enjoy Tarantino's original work better)
    6. Death Proof (only saw the extended cut and its great but a little bit to talky)
    7. Four Rooms (His segment was good but it was a copy of an old twilight zone episode and as i said above i much rather prefer his original work)
    Never ignore coincidence. Unless, of course, you’re busy. In which case, always ignore coincidence.

  • Guys we cannot count Four rooms as a Tarantino film as he only directed 1 room, its not his movie
  • 3 years ago
  • @SpaceCowboy I tend to notice the swearing in the first 15, but then I just forget about it and get into the rhythm of the film, but sayin that i did watch Goodfellas before with a swear count of 300 or somethin rediculus before i watched reservoir dogs :)

  • @skywise Glad someone recognized or remembered four rooms, that was a great movie in my eyes. Also I see Dusk till Dawn is not Mentioned.

  • Yes QT only directed one segment, But even being a remake of the man from rio, It was a classic QT bit. From dusk till Dawn still has that QT quality. Even if it was only a screenplay by him.
