Reservoir Dog is a great film though. Kill Bill was clearly superior to any rubbish old kung fu movie. I don't mind thefts if they improve on things.

I've watched a lot of old Kung fu movies. Most of them are better than Kill Bill (and they aren't 3 hours long).

Ultimately his movies are about movies. There’s nothing wrong with that. He’s got great style and understands how to toy with audience expectations. Any one of his films on its own can feel like a master class of sorts.

But I think his work becomes harder to swallow the more you see of it. After a while you become aware of the empty calories.

I haven't liked anything since the Kill Bill movies. Death Proof was terrible and everything since has been too long and over wordy. The Hateful Eight was bloated, over written, over long and quite boring.

Maybe the wrong term to use.

Inglorious Basterds was by the numbers shite. It was like he was trying to rip himself off. While it started out great with the Waltz brilliant monologue with polite sinister reserved cuntism, it went down hill after that. The scene in the german pub was so predictable, it was embarrassing.
