[quote]I’ve been writing screenplays for some time now. Something that people have pointed out to me is that I use alot of dialogue with people just talking about things not related, things you would talk about in real life. This is just my style and, it comes naturally to me, it’s just what I do best at. QT is the same way, and I wouldn’t want anyone to think that I’m tryin to imitate his style, because I can clearly see why they would say that. Should I try and change m y writing style, or say fuck it and keep doing what I do?[/quote]
Depends what you mean by "things you would talk about in real life". A lot of people here are quick to point out that "things you would talk about in real life" is QT's style. Well to a broad statement like that i would say - not necessarily so, i think he's more pop culture influenced than anything else. A lot of his dialogue revolves around movies/music/tv shows and shit related to it.
But if you mean by "things you would talk about in real life" and instead have your characters talk about everyday normal boring shit like sports, weather, current events, news, people bitching about work, gossip, and whatnot - not necessarily pop culture influenced - then it wouldnt be QT's dialogue. But if this everyday dialogue didnt relate to the story in some or any way then most likely the script would be terrible. I can't say ive seen a movie where people just mainly talk about everyday real life boring shit like the above stuff i mentioned and it didnt even move the story forward in some way. That would be a pretty boring movie i imagine.
