The Rock?


#1

Is it true that Quentin had something to do with the script on “The Rock” I am certain I have read that somewhere. Can anyone help please?!

Hi Amanda.



You can read the answer of your question on this board.



Just click the “Main Website” buttom and then FILMOGRAPHIE and then FULL FILMOGRAPHIE.

Then you can see the information about movies QT was involved in any way.

There you can find “The Rock”:





I copied the text for you:



Tarantino did uncredited rewrites.



Something else, Roger Ebert sais about The Rock:



’…In a movie that borrows from all the movies I’ve already listed (plus second-hand filching from Die Hard'' and related epics), there are two particularly obvious steals: the old hypodermic-needle-plunging-into-the-heart trick, from Quentin Tarantino'sPulp Fiction,’’ and the Mexican standoff in which everybody has a gun pulled on everyone else (from QT’s Reservoir Dogs'' andTrue Romance’’ courtesy of old Westerns). Two lifts from Tarantino? Maybe the producers, Jerry Bruckheimer and the late Don Simpson, were getting their revenge for the famous Tarantino monologue in Sleep With Me'' where he analyzed theirTop Gun’’ as a homosexual parable…






Hope that helps. :smiley:

michael bay and QT know each other.



i know that michael bay was getting mauled by critics and QT phoned him up and said “don’t worry, they called me teh anti-christ last year”

he did uncredited rewrites for The Rock. I think you can read some info on this in the various books on QT. If you watch the film you’ll notice some scenes that have something tarantino-esque to it, i suspect that will be tarantino’s handprints
