i guess that’s the best one in german, yeah. but i haven’t read it.


#6

It is nice, yes. But the fictional script at the end is sensless. The author tried to do what ever, I don’t know. Within this script are quotes from QT movies and other guys 'n girls.

I thought about buying the new release because of this extra interview and of course the KB part.


#7

there’s a fake script in there? how lame!


#8

No! It is not a script of a movie. It is titled as “Is this the way to Tarantino” and includes these quotes etc. I can’t get the sense of this. Maybe I am too stupid for this


#9

There’s also a book called ‘Tarantino’ by Jim Smith relased recently ove here in England, that books okay.

I must read Quintenessital QT though.

#11

I started reading the Quintessential now. I am curious how it’s gonna be. I also have the Smith one on my shelf, but not read yet. all my reviews will be up on the main page as always


#12

Yeah The Film Geek Files one is really cool.


#13

#14

some are, some aren’t. i really recommend the Bernard one, that one’s really cool. stuff you dont find online


#16

only read Film Geek Files and it’s cool, i like what Quentin said about Blaxpoitation


#17

Reading a book is mor comfortable than reading in the internet - for me…


#18

I bought J.Smith’s book on QT the other day, it’s not as much about Quentin as it is about his films. It’s still a good read though


#19

I have never read any Tarantino books before - I read a book about Pulp Fiction though, can’t mind the name off-hand. I have heard good things about Quintessential Tarantino, maybe I should try find it at my local book store.


#20

i read the first 50 or so pages now of Page’s book and so far its the worst i’ve read. i wont judge the book now since i havent finished it yet, but the impression so far is, that there are better books out there.
