Wink Rez Dogs was great though.
 
That is the one movie of his that's alright BUT it's also a complete rip-off of Chung Yun-Fat's "City On Fire".

Didn't see it.  Refuse to see his garbage.  My guess would be that it was another idea he lifted from someone else, eliminated anything close to character development, added graphic violence and language for the sake of graphic violence and language, and just waited for hollywood lemmings and college dumbasses to come fellate him.  What a complete pile of sh*t, he is.

If you were referring to this, though, while I haven't seen it either I would consider it. Big smile

To be frank I like Tarantino's movies(mostly Kill Bill,Pulp Fiction,Death Proof and Inglorious b*****ds).He's talented and knows how to steal from the films he love,he also knows how to quote great composers but I never felt the need to see his films again because for me he can't beat Leone,Peckinpah and Kubrick.On the contray I really dug Django:Foxx and Waltz are great,the soundtrack is awesome,it's a great homage to spaghetti western with hints of blaxploitation.This movie reminds me a lot of Day of anger(with Lee Van Cleef and Guiliano Gemma by Tonino Valerii) even if the end is slightly different.I found it so good I saw it two times in the theater.For me it's Quentin's best film.

I thought it was over hyped to be quite honest. Great acting, but the story was a bore.

This list needs more Aronofsky.  I don't know if he's my absolute favorite or not, but he's on my shortlist.


From this list I my top 2 are Kubrick and Lynch.

I liked Django a lot.  I think it's one of his best.  He has his flaws as a director, but most of what he does is pretty damn good.  I think Kill Bill is his masterpiece.

You'll have to reswearify the link.

(and basically... reworking ideas from other things, modelling things self-consciously on previous works and styles of, in this case, film  is and has always been a legitimate and important part of producing art [cf. Vergil modelling stuff on Theocritus, Homer, Greek Tragedy, the epic cycle, Apollonius Rhodius and Callimachus... there's some really interesting odd stuff in late antiquity where people create new narratives wholly composed of slightly modified half-lines from previous works]... Tarantino obviously flags up his influences and doesn't make a big deal of pretending the core ideas are all his own)

Having seen both the Djangos (the spaghetti western long before Tarantino's film, which incidentally includes a cameo by Franco Nero and a really neat re-use of the style of the opening shots) - I've not seen the Corbucci sequel, though... the original is a great film (especially Carlo Simi's set design) with an appalling script and pretty terrible English voiceovers. The Tarantino film is the only standout western that's been made since, at least, Unforgiven (and it probably shows more ) and is, imho, both a film where Tarantino's sense of style, production values and ability to wrench great performances out of actors I have otherwise never been impressed by is combined with the film having a real heart. He really should've made his own cameo in it something that he, y'know, can do (and it should really have kept in a bit more dialogue to actually establish the point of that bit of the film) but other than that I think the film's incredible.

But yeah, of the ones I know here (most of), I'm only a big fan of Kubrick and Tarantino. Coen brothers have done some very good and watchable stuff but don't really engage me on a personal level.

The beautiful thing about The Room is that you can always see how hard Wiseau was trying.

As a matter of taste, my own list would be very different.

On the list, the Coen brothers.

My all-time favorite is Luis Bunuel. Jacques Tati would be 2nd... Claude Chabrol 3rd. I have a soft spot for Eric Rohmer, 4th. Jacques Rivette. Godard's 60s films.

Favorite films... The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and Phantom of Liberty (Bunuel), Celine and Julie Go Boating (Rivette), Red (Kieslowski), Diva (Beineix), Le boucher, La rupture and La ceremonie (all by Chabrol), Claire's Knee (Rohmer), Tati's Jour de fete and Mon oncle...

There are very few American directors working today whose films I would just *have* to see. The Coen bros. are one, Lynch is another. Having said that, I've lost interest in a great many international 'art films'. For example, French cinema really went downhill in the 80s and has stayed that way (although the great directors continued to make great films - Rohmer, Chabrol, Rivette, Pialat, et al). A good art film comes out now and again... These days I'd rather watch a zombie flick or a Korean horror film... LOL (Asian horror films, oh yeah! Kairo, Thirst, A Tale of Two Sisters, Dumplings...).
