[quote]Toothpick, QT depended Ã‚Â A LOT on other peoples ideas:
Dogs: he didnt invent that story
Pulp: he didnt invent that 100%
I am not anti-QT, surely not, but I accept the facts that QT took ideas from others, of course everyone does that, but I think then you should credit the people who made up the ideas.
I think Killing Zoe sucked a lot, but Adapting the novel Rules of At. is a tremendous effort and I believe in the decency of ROA.
i think Avary has yet to proof his skills, thats right[/quote]
I hope your not Anti-QT, you run a website about him. That would really suck. lol.
Yes, QT uses ideas from other movies, people. He has always done that. I think the reason people make such a big deal about that is because he does it better than anyone else. His films are total enjoyment from beginning to end. Most films dont have that.
Bottom line: If QT wrote a film with NO pop culture references, NO ideas from other sources, I believe that he could still write a masterpiece. He chooses to use other sources because thats who he is as a person. He loves pop culture and all its colorful languages and visuals.
Roger Avary contributed to some of QTs films, ok, thats true, but he DID NOT create the films. QT did. He directed them too, another talent that he has thats excellent and fresh.
Avary has definitely not proven his “ideas” are any good yet. Noone saw Rules of Attraction. The people that did, most of them hated it. Thats no good if your trying to prove your a good writer/director that has something to say. It doesnt tow the line.
IMO, Avary should try doing something more mainstream next time, then in between doing his big films, do his little Bret Easton Ellis adaptations.
