I really think his movies are fantastic but I’ve never really been fond of how often he uses the n-word in his movies. Especially the ones that came after he made Inglourious Basterds. That might be sending a bad message to the kids.

How surprised would you be if it came out that Quentin Tarantino was a high ranking member of the KKK?

Too bad their special abilities are so limited. Imagine there were characters like Jar Jar Binks whose alternate special ability was to stumble into enemies and take out the enemies using an ally's weapon by mistake. :D

I don’t think he writes racist scripts. I think he does really well depicting strong black characters. Samuel L. Jackson’s character in Pulp Fiction is probably one of the most recognized movie characters I’ve ever seen.

My friend once dressed as him for Halloween. We actually went through the whole night without any nasty looks from anybody

My friend Stan (he is black) is always raging on about Quentin Tarantino for going so deep to give the image of an authentic black hero without making them sound like ignorant simpletons like other directors do.

Maybe I’m joining this conversation a bit late but I think Hollywood really got in its stride between the late 60s and the 80s. since then, movies have mostly been about special effects and turning an “Average Joe” into a knight in shining armor :roll:

I thought I was the only one who was bothered by that. And let me tell ya there hasn’t really been a movie I’ve went to see twice at the theater for quite some time now

I think the world saw the best of the best in the 70s. If you are talking cars or movies, we were doing really great stuff back then.

Ahh man, you can say that again. America was on top! Texas Chainsaw Massacre is pretty much the genesis of all the horror movies you see today.
