Here is a beef I have.
Michael Madsen said Quentin is stil the same person but he has bigger toys to play with now etc, but I prefer his B-movie type films like Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction to the ritzy glitzy Kill Bill Volumes.
Well although I loved Pulp Fiction (its my favourite film ever!) and Reservoir Dogs, I also loved Kill Bill. I could watch Kill Bill over and over again, I’ve probably seen it like 200 times or something, whereas I can’t do that with his first 2 films. The reason is, that he has so much going on in the “ritzy glitzy” Kill Bill. There is just such a variation in vision there it’s just extraordinary, which he couldn’t have achieved if he had a low budget. Volume 2 is less “ritzy glitzy” and is not as visually exciting as Volume 1. Volume 1 was full of these kind of ‘different’ things. Whereas, in RD and PF, because there wasn’t a lot of budget, the sets were kinda dull and not much was happening on screen, as the focus was more on dialogue. Many people would argue that the directing in PF and RD was nothing compared to that of KB. With Kill Bill, each time you see it, you discover something new, and there is just so much to see, unlike his first 2 films. However Pulp Fiction is my all-time fav film so, it kinda balances out.
To conclude, I would say it doesn’t matter to me how much money QT has at his disposal. Either way, he is going to make films that I enjoy (hopefully) and so it doesn’t really matter to me. He had enough money for Volume 2 yet he went for the ‘old’ look. So I think he still prefers that b-movie feel to his films, but even then, Volume 1 being all “ritzy glitzy” is still an unbelievable film and in my opion better than RD and JB. Making a film like this doesn’t really change anything except it is more pleasing to the eye.
