I think True Romance & Pulp are his best scripts so far. Hopefully Bastards will go right alongside them.

A lotta people say True Romance is so well written, I think they mean the Dennis Hopper / Christopher Walken scene, before he kills him. The rest, not SO great I think.
For a QT script I think it's not that well written, it's his first script and I think it shows in some scenes.

Pulp however was brilliantly written, and I think every movie he has done since was written better than TR. And I'm sure IB is a better script(s) than Pulp, he is more experienced now.

The Sicilian scene is classic but theres a bunch of other scenes I love too. Its right up there with PF for me. I love all the characters. One of QTs finest, most entertaining scripts. Nothin can change my mind on that.

I can agree with that.  I think TR was incredible. 

I have to disagree when you say IB has to be better just because he has more experience.  I can't imagine QT writing a poor script, ever...  But, that doesn't mean, he can't go down from his prior work, which was bloody brilliance. 

I'm not saying IB won't be great, it will.  I'm just saying, he's already written greatness, many times over, so where does he go from there? 

I feel like people are putting so much pressure on him when it comes to Inglorious Bastards, that it may make him want to rethink things he's already written that are brilliant and Tarantino-esque. 

Just wait, and let the man write.

No, no.  I didn't mean YOU Putney!  That comment was mainly directed towards Crazy_Hattori.  I should have "" it.  Sorry.

Not exactly.. he said "writing this script made me a better writer", there's a slight difference..

Ok, he does not say it's THE absolute best script...but he clearly says it's one of the best which is pretty close.

I think he was referring more to the female dialogue aspect. I agree it was really great. I dont consider Death Proof his best script so far though.

My favourite script of his is Kill Bill, because he created this whole mythology of this epic story himself from ground up, with so many fascinating characters, scenes and dialogue. It's as if he had concentrated pop culture glory into a needle and injected it into every page.

I think his best script is Reservoir Dogs because it's all about the dialogue.

I have to agree with your opinion on Death Proof visually.  Jackie Brown was a brilliant adaptation, and a great movie.  Pulp Fiction is legend.  But Kill Bill is EPIC!

I think Kill Bill is visually his best work yet. So many beautiful moments, it's like you could pause the screen at almost any time and it will look good.

The lighting always reminds me of the lighting in casino, Theres alot of  strong white light on the characters head and shoulders.

I thought it would be cool if Tarantino could incorporate the Captain Koons watch story from pulp fiction into Inglorious Bastards - what do you guys think? I love how his movies always have references to his previous movies.

"The Watch" huh? Sounds cool to me. Good idea, maybe QT thought of it first.

It's rue a problem, plus it's not supposed to be in the same period. Though QT could find a twist to make reference to it, would be cool indeed.

QT could make a reference to Butch's granddad somewhere in there. From what Ive heard theres going to be alot of skipping around in time in Bastards. We'll see...

Haha Ify.

Fox, incorporating the watch story into IB is a really good idea.  I love it.  It would be great if QT could make that work.  Of course, if anyone can do it, it's him.

Im pretty sure that when QT writes its an organic thing. If Butchs granddads watch story doesnt come out as hes writing hes not going to stick it in there simply to do it.
