Does he really think QT and RR examine every little aspect of what they do THAT much? They came up with the idea in about 5 minutes.
These guys are total film geeks - of course they analyze this shit to death. The problem here is that the author is criticizing Tarantino and Rodriguez for not enjoying these films the way he does. Now that is snobbery.

Shooting fish in a barrel?
If you are going to compare a Tarantino film to going fishing, then adding a shotgun sounds about right
