As long as I like the characters and the story is interesting QT can throw as many references and homages in as he wants.
But with Kill Bill you have to put it in context. It was WRITTEN to be an almost comic book style exploitation-action-revenge film. Not a film like Pulp Fiction where real world people are hanging out talking for most of the movie. Not only did Kill Bill have lots of action, he had really cool characters and some good dialogue too for the kind of film (revenge) it was. The whole thing worked out great across the board.
With IB, it doesnt sound like its going to be a real action packed type film like Kill Bill was. More of characters talking alot with a few action scenes placed here and there. Its a diff genre, diff style of story.
All of QTs films have had alot of homages and references to other movies, some more than others (Pulp, Kill Bill prob have the most). But as we know you cant have that by itself, that cant carry a movie alone. Its got to be a nice even mix (story, characters, dialogue, references, music, diirection) of all those things QT is best at doing.
What Id like from IB is to have everything cranked up just right. The visuals, the characters, music, story.
So it just flows like a good Kentucky bourbon.
