Lol.

I'd have to agree with Pete and Ify, if he was better than QT we might not be talking about just QT but the both of them. But Avary whined and bitched and hasn't done anything that great since.

***Spoilers for Grindhouse ***
















How coincidental that it says Thunderbolt before Death Proof.

"tarantino is my favorite director and writer and all but first of all jackie browns story was adapted from a book and kill bill is really has small parts of many kung fu and spaghetti western movies so story wise i dont think he is so great but his diolage and his characters are the great part of his movies."

Thank you, his storys are good but not great.(with the exception of four rooms, that was a good story and retty much all his) But his dialoage and characters are. Also the way he creates scenes is great, for example: jules and marvin recovering the briefcase in pulp, the intro scene in dogs/ear cutting scene, all the scenes with samuel in jackie brown, his whole segment in four rooms(who else thinks that shit was pure genius) hahahahha that part when norman says his dicks gettin hard cus norman is gonna cut off his finger is pure genius.

And as for avary i consider his contribution to pulp just ideas. MArvin gettin shot, the gold watch bullshit and the bullets missing there targets. Then you look at tarantio he has to create this whole world to fit these storys into(and does a damn good job at it) EVERTHING around avarys ideas is a hell of a lot to make up. So i do thik tarantino deserves the writen and directing credit.

But without avary pulp wouldnt have been as good, so its a toss up.

But then again thats why i started this thread is to see what im thinking is right. Thats why i NEED the PANDEMONIUM REGHNS SCRIPT.

there arent any new stories to be told...great storytellers like tarantino make old stories their own

do u wanna an amazing example? the majority of shakespeare's plays are based on pre-existing stories, including hamlet, king lear, othelo, and romeu e juliet...its not the story, its the teller.
