Tarantino and pt anderson comparisons


#1

ok, here are my comparisons between pt anderson and quentin tarantino, or at least, their films:


  1. both their debuts (res dogs and Hard eight) were critically aclaimed but did not recieve a lot of box office money…both werte shot on very low budgets…
  2. their 2nd movies (p fiction and boogie nights) put them on the map-they earned attention and critical acclaim for their sophmore efforts…both were around 2 and 1/2 hours long…both had a bit higher of a budget than the last one…pulp fiction is seems to be the film most frequently called qt’s best film-boogie nights seems to be the film most frequenty called pta’s best film…
  3. their third films (jackie brown and magnolia) were both sort of part of the love it or hate it type…many called both of these movies overlong and boring…lots of fans of each director thought that they should have stuck to the roots and genre of their 2nd film…both were not as widely acclaimed as their sophmore films…
  4. their fourth films (kill bill and punch drunk love-ps Im counting kill bill as one film because essentially that is what it is) got pretty good reviews, and were both pretty twisted…both (meaning vol. 1 and pdl) were only an hour and a half long after some very long films being their predeccesors

oh, and, I forgot something: both are eagerly awaited for their next films…

I already read this on imdb, so either you’re repeating youreslf on here or you’re a thief of ideas. :stuck_out_tongue:





Here’s one major difference for me. I love QT, I don’t like PTA. “Boogie Nights” I enjoyed and for a while I thought PTA could be on my cool list, but then I saw that piece of tripe called “Punch Drunk Love” and changed my opinion. I’ve never seen “Magnolia”, and since I heard it’s boringly long and features stupid things like frogs falling fom the sky I’m not too eager to see it either.


#4

Heres my comparison: QT makes exciting genre films and PTA makes boring crap.


#5

I’d have to disagree. Punch Drunk Love was fantastic, and so was Magnolia.


#6

Comparisons that actually have to do with the films:



Both Tarantino and Anderson are amazingly gifted writers, able to switch tones and moods at a drop of a hat.



Also, they are the best at using pop music to (under)score their films in the Scorsese tradition. (Wes Anderson also does this extremely well).



Non-film related: These two are also the most compulsively readable interviewees.

PTA is a amazing film director!!! BUt wait…i forgot this is the Tarantino board so it doesnt really matter right? You bunch of close minded bastards…and Scarface…you are a fucking faggot for calling Magnolia boring and stupid without even have watching it…you know what I think?..the movie “Scarface” is FUCKING OVERRATTED!!! i could name 5 gangster movies off the top my head better than Scarface…Goodfellas alone shits all over Scarface



Scarface = Most overratted movie of all time!!!



thats right i said it

just cause youve seen a million rappers on Cribs with a copy of Scarface and hearing how much they love it, doesnt make the movie all that great…this coming from a big gangster movie/Al Pacino fan







Another comparisson between QT and PTA is they are both really good friends

I could give two shits if you don’t like Scarface, and I don’t know why you should give a shit if I don’t like PTA. It’s called an opinion asshole, and that doesn’t make me close-minded either. I could mention a 100 directors who shit all over PTA’s overrated ass. And I didn’t say Magnolia is stupid, I said I heard that it’s stupid. There’s a difference, so next time read what I said before making an idiot out of yourself.



And another thing. I don’t give a fuck if QT and PTA are friends. That doesn’t mean shit.

Its funny, everytime someone says they dont like a director, the next person has to retort with a snub against a director that person likes.



“I hate PTAs movies”



"Well Scarface is overrated!!!"



Come on now. Thats just petty stuff.



DePalma’s Scarface is 100X more entertaining and influential (not just for the rappers) than any of PTA’s boring movies (Ive seen em all except PDL). Im not saying that cuz I love the movie. Im just stating the facts.



PTA may be a decent director, and he seems like a great guy, but in the realm of popular directors, hes nothing special. PTA hasnt really done anything Ive seen that excited me. Just the standard indie type snoozefests. Thanks but no thanks.



And how can you compare being friends with someone? haha

tell me, toothpickvic, how is Scarface influential??

#12

Scarface was an influence to the crime genre, way back in 1983 you didn’t see many movies about big-time cocaine dealers with excessive violence. Notice how alotta crime films after it also used the same elements as this one.





My dear lord you’re a fucking dumbass.

Im not really saying anything bad about Scarface as a movie, im just saying its waaaaaay overratted. I never once said it was bad movie…assholes…bythe by brutality dog…I wasnt really responding to your post, i was really responding to Scarface’s (guy on the board) post…if any of yall really call yourselves “filmbuffs”, than you would consider movies like Magnolia and Boogie Nights reasonalbly good movies. I personally enjoy movie’s of all genre’s and have patience for a movie as complex and thoughtprovoking as Magnolia.

Scarface? Overated? Nah…



Magnolia I didn’t like, I got nothing outta it, I stared at the screen blankly thinking when it would end.



Boogie Nights is OK, but nothing great.
