    I always thought Kill Bill was his 2 weakest flicks. I think because he represents american pop culture and gangster shit, and it just seemed like he was trying to make a tribute to the old martial arts films rather than a good film. It just seemed a bit desperate. I'm probably in the minority here though. Anyone else not really 'get' Kill Bill?
    Uma Thurmans a very watchable actress though, so I've probably seen them both 2 or 3 times when they've been on TV.

    even weaker than Four Rooms and Death Proof? even if it wasn't supposed to be a tribute i think it's a very good film. but he does fucking awesome tributes. you can tell he knows about what he's film-making about. at least he kept to his style of directing and writing.

    ^^Haven't seen 4 rooms. Deathproof was better to my taste and seemed more like a Tarantino joint to me. I know its a stupid nothingey film but Deathproof is supercool.

    i agree. as much as a nothing it was, it was still entertaining to me. and the scenes where they're in the bar kind of reminds me of The Warriors

    If you're going to disagree, at least explain yourself.

    Kill Bill definitely had pop culture. but Pulp Fiction was the most pop culture film he did

    ^^Right, and all his shit is littered with pop culture references. He broke into filmmaking in 1992 and in the first few minutes of his film hes talking about Madonna getting the fucking of her life.

    Mr. White's homosexual love for Mr. Orange in Reservoir Dogs ruined the heist and got them all killed (no sarcasm)

    Christopher Walken's bit part in Pulp Fiction was very good if for nothing more than it's intensity and implications to the rest of the plot.
