[quote]i just watched "who do you think you’re fooling?"
you know, I never thought it’s gonna blow me away like this.
i wont call Dogs a rip-off of City on Fire, but from what I’ve seen in that documentary, Dogs would easily qualify as a REMAKE of City on Fire.
i am indeed surprised, but, that’s how i’d call it[/quote]
Any way you cut it, Dogs is its own film. City On Fire is total other film. It has no QT dialogue, no American actors, no 70s music. If some of the story and character elements are the same, so what? TONS of films have similar storylines and character elements. Its nothing new or rare.
All QT did was take some similar ideas and put it in with his own personality and his own take on the crime/heist genre. Its just like hes always done and probably always will do.
The same things can be said about Pulp Fiction, From Dusk Till Dawn and Kill Bill. QT is a master of pop culture cinema. Thats what he does best, and I love it.
