The movie has an 84% on rotten tomatoes and has mostly positive reviews from major newspapers. I believe the movie is overhyped and overrated. It weakly strings together the Mansons and rick dalton. The movie also has none of the tension Tarantino is famous for and really has no bad guy either actors deal with specifically. It has no scene where the tension is super high like in Django or basterds.
Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill are the only Tarantino directed movies I've really cared for. I think he's a very overrated director. His dialog is usually really good. But like in Death Proof it can get f**king boring if it's 75% of your movie.
I like things he's written more than his directed movies like True Romance and Natural Born Killers. His story in Four Rooms was one of the better ones of the movie though too.
Personally I think his movies are shit. Inglourious Basterds is the only one I can think of that was watchable and I had no idea he was involved until a few minutes ago. Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill l & ll, Death Proof, everything else I've seen with his name on it .. IMO .. boring shit.
I liked it, but it was a bit long, and I can see that some would and have called it boring. I was never bored, but there were some scenes that could have been tweaked. Tarantino could have cut about 20 to 30 minutes out of the movie I think, and not lost anything.
As a person who actually lived through those years, and who heard the reality of the Manson family murders... well I was pleasantly surprised at the way the movie ended.
Earth Mother, Ganesha, Ra, Zeus, Jupiter, Mithra, Jesus, Allah,... GOD... and the Internet God of conspiracies... I beg you:
I cant say I enjoy all of his films. What I will say is, the dialogue in many of his films are very quote worthy. Pulp Fiction was probably my favorite out of his films, and Jackie Brown was a good one too. Maybe Im more of a fan of Samuel L. though.
