I totally agree  with you...I don't know what the cause is (me thinks Jealousy) But you are so right.

AND WORLD WAR Z IS AMAZING!!!! ( but I would never doubt the taste of a Doctor Who avatar)


Stop the hate avoid what you don't like and stop harshing the mellow of those who do enjoy it.

I didn't go to the Twillight thread and start ranting about how stupid and immature it is. I did go and make a comment about how I don't get it, and it's not my cup of tea, but to go to a thread to bust on shit where most of the peeps on that thread are enjoying the topic is self-indulgent and assinine.


Wer all have different taste. I like Micheael Bay movies, and Tarentino , and so on.  We like what we like.




How can you bust a mans balls for paying homage to something that is a huge part of the inspiration of his art.

I pay homag eto comic artist I love when I draw.

AND QT freely admits it. He also wrote that speech of Jules. Sure it was based on old Sonny Chiba movies, but Tarentino made it his own. And he obviously has a love of Sonny Chiba movies, as he mentions it in True Romance, and later went on to direct a truly badass Kung Fu flick.

Jules speech:

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.


The path of the righteous man and defender is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper, and the father of lost children. And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious anger, who poison and destroy my brothers; and they shall know that I am CHIBA the BODYGUARD when I lay my vengeance upon them.

You're right; he did change like three words.  Haha, sorry, couldn't resist.  Seriously though, I hear what you're saying.

And the bottom line for me I guess, is if you saw Pulp Fiction and instantly recognized this speech you'd probably think, "Cool, that's Sonny Chiba.  Tarantino is awesome" but if you didn't recognize it and had no idea where it came from then who cares anyway?   Then you find out later and it makes you want to check out an old film that you would have never heard about before.  And there is no questioning that QT has done a HUGE service for cult movie recognition.

I will see this one tomorrow just like I've seen all his others just to see what crazy stuff he's going to pull next.   But I'll be back here arguing with people about the pros and cons of any movie; that's part of the enjoyment of the site and I'd like to think that people don't take it too seriously.

Actually Tenebre,

I have you to thank for making me research it and found out it came from an old Sonny Chiba flick. It does make me wanna check t out...thanks

Actually it was Chiba that changed the words, that speech is from the Bible.  Ezequiel 25:17

See, my issue isn't with Tarantino himself. His movies don't make buckets of cash for no reason. I think he a good filmmaker, it's just that his finished products don't suit my pallete. I have yet to figure out why. BTW, the only Tarantino film I haven't seen is Death Proof, so I'm not just spouting off about something I've never seen (not that anyone would EVER do that, right?)

I enjoyed the story of Kill Bill, but I think it sums it up nicely (for myself, anyway) when, after part one, I thought "This would be a great movie if someone else had directed!"

You'll notice I'm not saying he should be banned from making films, or that he's a hack, or anything else. I wish him the best of luck, and I'm happy that his fans have something to look forward to. As for me, with that first trailer for Inglorious Basterds, my first thought was "Damn it! He's going to get me again!!!" I WANT to see it (and I will), but I'm pretty sure I'll have the same thoughts I did after Kill Bill.

BTW, Chuck711, saying that people who don't like Tarantino just aren't SMART enough to like him? That's the kind of dumbass comments that makes me appreciate the work (if not the product) of Tarantino, but hate a lot of his fans. Not helping your cause, slick.....

Gauley, "The Bodyguard" isn't Chiba's greatest work by any stretch but you should check it out.  However, you also owe it to yourself to watch my favorite Sonny Chiba film, "Karate Bearfighter."  If you haven't seen it you're in for a treat.  It's pretty much exactly what the title says and you can't go wrong with that.

Hanso, only the last sentence is from Ezekiel, the rest is "original".  Look at that, QT got us to discuss the bible and obscure karate movies.  Thanks Quentin!  The more you know....

wow didnt know there were so many pansies here. well either way i cant wait  to see pit kill nazis... 

2L82Pray 8/21/2009 10:35:25 AM

didn't I just see a movie where someone was killing Nazi's? Oh wait, that was Tom Cruise. Tom Hanks? Or was it Indiana Jones...maybe it was...Hell I forget there's been so many of them.

Hollywood is definitely become a wasteland of unoriginality if this is the best they can come up with, and right on the heels of another "Kill Hitler" movie. A year ago this might have generated some interest but with one movie already out this summer, this just seems like an unorginal follow-up rip-off.

Killin Nazi's Never gets old!
