Wow, you are more stupid then we gave you credit for.
If I can’t speak english, then you fellas sure as hell can’t read it.
Don’t you think that maybe, just maybe, it is you who is incapable of writing sensible sentences? Now, if you’re here barking shit that doesn’t make sense, how do you expect us to understand what you’re trying to say to us?
I understood what the title of the song was after the first reply.
The first question you asked was completely ridiculous. But then again, you may not have been aware of there being such a song, so we shall forgive you for that one… for now.
[quote]My second reply was a comment about how stupid QT’s dialog was (Yes, I said it, S-T-U-P-I-D).
So because one person out of probably millions of people didn’t understand QT’s dialogue, automatically it’s stupid? Just because YOU couldn’t understand his dialogue, that means Quentin Tarantino’s dialogue is stupid? (Yes, I said the same thing twice, because we all know you have a problem with understanding even the simplest sentences)
[quote]If someone asks you a question, do you reply, in answer, with the SAME question? NO.
The answer to B’s question is not “when will I see you again?”[/quote]
This is the biggest flaw in your argument! When Beatrix says “When will I see you again?” Bill DOESN’T reply with “When will I see you again”, but with “That’s my favourite soul song of the 70’s”. Bill ISN’T asking her a question. He ISN’T answering her question with a question, but rather, he is telling her that what she just said is the title of his favourite soul song of the 70’s.
Your mind can’t seem to comprehend such simple lines of dialogue (hence why we called you a retard).
When the fuck, does Bill EVER reply with “When will I see you again”? He never utters those words, and he NEVER answers her question with another question!!
Let me give you an example. If someone says to me “Oh, I’m feeling ‘comfortably numb’” I’ll reply with “Haha, that’s the name of one of my favourite Pink Floyd songs” Do you finally get it now?
Also, QT is trying to show how musically orientated Bill is (much like QT is himself). In addition to being a pop culture reference (something not unheard of within QT’s dialogue), the little conversation Bill and The Bride had in the wedding chapel (about the the used-record store, and getting to listen to music all day) is also a continuation of the ‘soul song of the seventies’ dialogue, in a sense that both pieces of dialogue revolve around the theme of ‘music’. Basically, QT is trying to show that Bill and Beatrix often talk about music to each other. The fact that Beatrix is unable to ‘get’ what Bill is saying (she replies “What?” after Bill’s reply) shows possibly, not only their age difference, but how knowledgeable Bill is with these kinds of subject matter. Furthermore, it also makes Bill seem superior to Beatrix, he is portrayed as in control of things, and certainly in control of Beatrix. I think the purpose of this is to show the growth of Beatrix’s character. She grows to be this blood-thirsty, revenge seeking mother, who seems to have matured hugely, and is now confident enough to take on Bill as well as anybody else who stands in her way. Beatrix is now in control, she holds all the cards (or so it seems), and it basically shows how this kind of shy, love-filled, innocent and unknowing kid(do) changes into this ‘monster’ and is now in a more controlled position than Bill.
Believe me, I have given QT’s dialogue a whole lot of thought. Upon studying some of his works, it has become clear to me that QT is a genius. I don’t want to go into details right now because I’m supposed to be studying for my exams at this moment in time, but NOTHING Tarantino does in his films is by accident. He is very much particular, and quite the perfectionist and everything he does in his films is for a reason (though not always clearly-defined reasons!). His writing is so brilliant, most people don’t even know (or appreciate) just how great it really is. They aren’t just words, he writes what he does very much purposefully, his writing is often remarkably poetic following very rhythmic structures. Sam Jackson’s dialogue alone in PF and JB flows naturally, Jackson almost sings his dialogue such is the beauty and brilliance of it. There are so many poetic charateristics in QT’s writing you wouldn’t believe!! Internal rhymes, terminal rhymes, like rhymes, alliteration etc. all contribute (certainly in my eyes and ears) of his sheer brilliance. He is in a league of his own, and people who study his work, and actors like David Carradine, Sam Jackson and Bruce Willis are not wrong when they compare him with the greats such as Shakespeare.
It saddens me however, to know that very many people are oblivious to QT’s true talents, and instead concentrate on how he stole this scene from City on Fire or that scene from Lady Snowblood, but c’est la vie.
Johny, arguing maybe be pointless, (in fact aren’t message boards here for the reason of discussing things, so naturally arguments will occur!!), but arguing is also fun.
