burn after reading overrated? that movie is phenomenal and doesn't even get any mainstream attention. so even if you don't like it, it's impossible to say it's overrated.

Agreed.

I find it odd that one can state that Coen Bros movies are overrated and praise Tarentino in the same conversation.

Pulp Fiction is great...but I don't think anything besides that deserves significant praise.

I thought the Kill Bill films and Django were good as well.

Not as much on Jackie Brown or Inglorious Basterds.

I never got the hype over Coen Bros films or Kubrick films.

I liked inglorious basterds. Pulp fiction definitely deserves the praise it gets and i think reservoir dogs does as well. Meh to the rest.

If the basement/bar scene in Inglorious lasted about 2 minutes as opposed to 20, it would have been better.

It just didn't have the same feel as the rest of the movie. I wasn't saying that it itself was poorly done scene, it just tripped up the film.

Has anyone watched that wikileaks documentary?

Definitely feel bad for Bradley Manning, very unstable person. In the end, all parties involved come off as bad people, the narrative definitely turns on Assange...deservedly so.

Every Tarantino movie has to have a mexican standoff. Personally, I think it not having the same "feel" as the rest of the movie, as you say, was a good thing -- in fairly long movies, it's good to have changes of pace like that.

I've read a little bit about it...is the love scene really that noteworthy? I'm more just curious, I don't really care to see it and I don't think it's one the gf wants to see considering it's most talked about scene is a graphic lesbian sex scene.


Eh, I mean, is it fairly graphic? Sure, I guess -- though that lies more in what they're doing than what they're explicity showing
Spoiler:
("fakes" were tacked on, if you know what I mean)
Though a 7 minute or so scene (plus one that's a little shorter) in a 3-hour movie, is technically a pretty small part of it.

I do think it was essential to the narrative to do it the way they did though...
Spoiler:
They'er not really compatible, in the sense that they don't have a lot of shared interests, and have differing viewpoints on things, so the fact that the reason they were together was their intense physical relationship really had to be driven home, or else you'd be sitting there wondering "so why are they still together again." Sure, I guess you could have tamer scenes, and then times after where they just talk about what happened and how it made them feel, but generally in movies I subscribe to the "show, don't tell" method of exposition.

Plus, to me the scene that stuck with me the most was towards the end of movie and didn't involve any nudity or anything anyway.

I love Woody Harrelson in any role. I might not go see it in theaters but it's definitely a redbox worthy pick.
