I have always felt I could never be as big a fan of Quentin Tarantino as Quentin Tarantino is.

I like Django Unchained. It's not nearly Tarantino's best. He was at his best, as were many directors who rose to popularity in the 90's, earlier in his career (when he made crime dramas.) Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown... those are his best films. Followed by Inglorious and Django (in no particular order) and then trailing miles behind, you have Kill Bill.

Best film of 2012? Hmm, I wouldn't say that. But it was good.

And one last thing:

No. Too many N words. I thought we were past that.


I know it is cliche to say "people that say this just don't understand his movies". But, I'm going to say it. People that say this just don't understand his movies, what kind of films he was raised on, how GINORMOUS an influence blaxploitation movies were to him, and the overall tone he strives for. If you're getting hung up on the word, you just..... don't.... get it.

I get it. He was one of may favorite directors. I don't agree with the overuse of the word in the movie. It was unnessary.

I understand that you don't agree, and that's fair. It's your prerogative to either like or dislike the language in his movies.

But how can you say he "was" one of your favorite directors? Have you not seen Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, or Jackie Brown? That word was used liberally throughout all of those movies.

Which movies did he make that caused you to consider him one of your favorites?

Kill Bill maybe? But that would be about it.

You say you thought we were past that. You do realize this is set in the past when that term was used more right. Also if the roles were reversed and it was white people who were being called cracker the whole time would you also not be okay with that? I have not seen the movie I am just assuming they were calling Jamie Foxx the n word and using it a lot when talking.

Sure. Those were the movies that made me consider him on my favorites. But, it's not used anywhere the near the amount of times in those movies as it was in Django.

OK, so Buscemi standing around in Reservoir Dogs telling a few other white guys that they are all "acting like a bunch of n*****" is not offensive, "dead n****** storage" from Pulp Fiction is not offensive, and Sam Jackson firing off "n******" like 200 times in Jackie Brown is not offensive.

But a movie actually written to take place during times where the "n" word WAS common and acceptable language (not in current times such as the aforementioned films), that features liberal use of that word, is?

You've lost me.
