    Because... uh... some people's idea of what is good dialogue is different than yours?

    I mean, I know that's the stock answer, but there's absolutely nothing to discuss here.

    Because, he pretends to be deep by throwing diarrhea on screen. From there pseudo bohemian movie nerds try to place tags on his works of genius and sell it to the rest of us.
    Like we'll truly believe that they enjoy anything about it.

    Tarantino's influences were the campy exploitation films of the 1960's and 70's. Tarantino tries to recreate that campy charm in his films, including the bizarre dialogue.

    But I definitely agree Tarantino is overrated!

    Reservoir Dogs is a remake of a Chinese film called "City of Fire" starring Chow Yun- Fat. I thought the dialogue was pretty meh'ish. The opening scene where they discuss Madonna and the ethics of tipping just sounded waaaay too forced.....

    Tarantino's role in Pulp Fiction ruined the movie for me....

    The dialogue in Reservoir Dogs sounds forced? You gotta be fuckin kidding me, that is the complete opposite of the truth. The great thing about Tarantino's dialogue is he shows the human side of criminals, killers, and otherwise pretty much bad people, and the writing is so real you would think it is normal people actually havin a conversation.

    And your comment about Tarantino's role in Pulp Fiction is also completely rediculous. Man, I don't understand people sometimes.

    Pretty much everyone that has ever worked with QT talks about him like he's a god amongst men, and I think actual actors are a pretty good judge of talent when it comes to direction or writing.

    I think Tarantino is grotesquely overrated.

    When did I say people are idiots? Your words not mine, I said I don't understand people sometimes. Some things are so undeniably good its hard to imagine someone thinking they are bad. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, especially the writing, are examples of that.

    i don't see how he makes attempts to "be deep"

    a lot of the "philosophical" stuff spit in his films are from characters who are burnt-out on drugs or with minds that were presented in a way to not be taken that seriously

    so, what he's doing is actually to the contrary... he's with you somewhat in that he's mocking people who try to tackle concepts and topics that they should be leaving alone



    i like tarantino's dialogue because it's catchy and has zing [dunno]

    a lot of it makes me chuckle and just keeps me eager to hear how the character will continue to phrase things in their off-beat manner

    he's simply a cool and entertaining filmmaker
