pretty good but “that kurosawa crap”???


#3

Yeah that got me too. Is he saying “crap” because he just uses that word (and “shit”) so much that it has lost it’s meaning, or does he really mean it? Sometimes I wonder if he make all those tributes/references/homages and all that stuff to movies most people have never heard of so he can score “movie geek points”. I don’t doubt that he loves these movies, but there’s nothing wrong with saying that Indiana Jones (or Star Wars for that matter) are good films. Didn’t he also make a tribute to the writer of “The Killing” in the Reservoir Dogs script because he didn’t want to use Stanley Kubrick?



Nice to see that both him and Eli Roth are not against the MPAA, while most people here are the opposite (though I can understand both sides).


#4

exactly. the way i understood it, it is almost that in order to love Baby Cart you have to hate Kurosawa. you can love both.


#5

I’m a little shocked. Kurosawa crap?! >:(


#6

I was going to say something about that last night/this morning when I watched the interview. I can only speculate, but he’s calling Akira Kurosawa samurai films and The Sword of Doom high-brow crap in the context of making an exploitation film. Is he going to use influence or reference non-exploitative films in an exploitation film? He’s gonna take the other tack, with pop/cult genre pictures.


#7

Cannot imagine he really means crap in a negative way,just slang.I mean Sword of Doom is a bomb (esp.the end),typical samurai movie.That´s just his way to talk,once I heard him saying something like ScorseseGoodFellasCasinoShit and I don´t think he hates those.


#8

If you asked QT about Kurosawa he could probably give you a history of his films and the guy himself. He said “crap” as a way of saying hes not doing the typical take on Japanese samurai films that 99% of American directors would do.

THE SWORD OF DOOM is not a bomb! Who woulda thunk, a Japanese samurai art film!


#10

I think anything QT thinks is cliche or worn out he refers to it as “crap”. Like he said “I didnt wanna do some wannabe GoodFellas Goomba shit” when he was talkin about making Dogs. Of course he loves Scorsese’s films and GoodFellas. Thats just how he talks. Like when I watch those 90s movies that are Tarantino-esque I say “Thats some wannabe Tarantino Reservoir Dogs shit”. Same idea. :slight_smile:


#11

you know…I actually agree with you Pete. That was very insightful. Please, humor us with a little more of your poignant acumen.


#12

See what Im doing here is, get this, I’m actually talking about MOVIES. Im not telling Texas vagina jokes that have absolutely nothing to do with the actual TOPIC. Not bad eh? It works for me!



Whats with the “You gonna get Raped” icon? Thats not really a subject to make a joke about. I know you rednecks think its funny shit, but the rest of us who arent inbred dont think its humorous. Have a LITTLE bit of class.

what in the fuck would a two-bit chowder-eating piece of shit like you know about class?



btw…QT made dark humor of rape many times: “I’m Buck, and I’m here to fuck”, and let’s not forget about Zed.

Now Im a “piece of shit”? Ooooooh.



Yeah but youre not QT. And you have no context to put it in. In those scenes the rapists got fucked up big time. QT isnt letting the rapes go. Whoever gets raped gets their revenge. An icon saying “You Gonna Get Raped” isnt really that funny. Who are you directing it towards? A woman? A guy? Maybe Im missing the humor in it or something. Whats funny about saying that? Lets hear it manure farmer!



Kilgore do you REALLY need attention that bad where youd start posting icons that are pro-rape? Jeez. Again, show some class. Not just for me, for everyone in here.



I dont mind joking around, you can be funny, but that kind of shit isnt funny at all.

I tell you what Pete…I’ll change my Icon if you change your name back to Popeye Pete. Deal?

Also, don’t make fun of farmers any more…if there is anyone in the world who should appreciate the people who put food on the table it’s you!


#16

Why do I have to change my name back to Popeye Pete? What does that have to do with anything? I dont understand where youre coming from.
