^ Is QT in your top 20? Just didn’t know how much you liked him. This is the only movie forum I’m on, not saying QT is my fav, but I just like the forum. Just didn’t know where you would put him.

I’d put him more into a different category. Like I have a lot of categories cause I used to write for a small film journal and so we made a lot of lists of like Writers Favorites. I’d put him in the category with certain standards.



On my top list he’d sit somewhere at like 25 or somewhere like that. Definitely before 30 because Jackie Brown is brilliant beyond brilliant. It’s the reason I joined this forum.

Have you seen Out of the Blue or The Last Movie?



Out of the Blue floored me the first time I watched it. Oh, man…you’ll never be the same again after that.

No never seen, I havn’t seen many of his movie as a matter of fact, which is why I’m withholding judgement until I do. It’s such an out there choice, even over Quentin Tarantino?
