[quote]Quentin and Robert in a thread together? What is this shit? Well my friend, this is the thread for the two good friends/directors. Both are very popular and widely successful. They film very similar and love cult films. Together in this thread, they can take down the rest of the world. You have the right to talk about anything Robert/Quentin *films/acting/jokes/social. Enjoy the thread and I will update frequently[/quote]
[quote]In January of 1992, Reservoir Dogs (1992) appeared at the Sundance Film Festival, by first-time writer-director Quentin Tarantino. The film garnered critical acclaim and the director became a legend immediately. Two years later, he followed up Dogs success with Pulp Fiction (1994) which premiered at the Cannes film festival, winning the coveted Palme D'Or Award. At the 1995 Academy Awards, it was nominated for the best picture, best director and best original screenplay. Tarantino and writing partner Roger Avary came away with the award only for best original screenplay. In 1995, Tarantino directed one fourth of the anthology Four Rooms (1995) with friends and fellow auteurs Alexandre Rockwell, Robert Rodriguez and Allison Anders. The film opened on December 25th in the United States to very weak reviews. Tarantino's next film was From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), a vampire/crime story which he wrote and co-starred with George Clooney. The film did fairly well theatrically.[/quote]

[quote]Robert Rodriguez was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, USA. At a very young age he showed an interest in cartooning and filmmaking and devoted all of his time towards developing this fascination. Finally, it paid off, resulting in him in making real movies; and just the first of them - El mariachi (1992) - made him the legend of independent, ultra-low budget filmmaking. His further career is a sign for young filmmakers that even the wildest dreams may come true if you are brave enough to follow your own path. Since then, Robert has written, directed, edited, and/or produced around 12 movies (as of 2007), including: Desperado (1995), From Dusk Till Dawn (1996), The Faculty (1998) and Spy Kids (2001).[/quote]

I know some photos are hotlinked, sorry about that.
theres a film section you know
[QUOTE=BigHeaded B;27815427]theres a film section you know[/QUOTE]
I just remembered that. Hopefully a moderator can move it. Thank you for letting me know.
Tarantino is a brilliant writer and director.
He directed the one CSI episode where Nick Stokes gets buried alive.
This is really the only reason why I like him.
Jesus, I read it first off as 'Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez Dead'
I like them though, Rodriguez' 10 minute cooking videos are very informative yet amusing
Reservoir Dogs was fucking brilliant
Running Scared, which is not directed or written by Tarantino, is still a great movie and it is actually recommended by Tarantino. It's intense and violent, check it out
We want more Tarantino films!
Theres a teacher in my school who looks exactly like Tarantino, and dresses like Sam Fisher in Splinter Cell Conviction.
I fucking love Spy Kids.

Spy kids was a good film for the time and it really kicked off the start of 3D films again, I think in the times now though it is a really bad movie. Robert Rodriguez is still a great director and I love his work. Machete is one of my favorite films because it relates the 21st century idea that illegal immigrants are terrible people and the works of Arizona's law enforcement. Its a great film and I suggest you all check it out if you haven't yet. [b]Plus you see Lindsey Lohan's tits[/b]
I think its funny that the same guy that brought you Grindhouse also gave us Spy Kids... hah
Tarantino is fucking brilliant in every way
Oh what, I've seen Once Upon a Time In Mexico and it makes sense why it looks so similar to Desperado. Never knew it was a sequel.
[QUOTE=Fycix;27832844]Never knew it was a sequel.
Its actually a three part film. Desperado is the second film in the series.
Reservoir Dogs is Tarantino's best. Pulp Fiction is an exceptionally close second.
I did not care for Inglorious Basterds.
I don't know any Robert Rodriguez films.
Edit: JK, I've seen Sin City. Was pretty cool.
Two of my favorite directors.
Nearly all of their films are gold.
Except for the Spy Kids sequels, Lava Girl and Shark Boy, and Deathproof.
[QUOTE=The_Marine;27840121] and Deathproof.[/QUOTE]
Deathproof was [b]GREAT[/b] in theaters. It sucks on dvd, only because Quentin removed like every awesome part from it.
I love these guys' films.
[QUOTE=Unicorn Kid;27845029]Deathproof was [b]GREAT[/b] in theaters. It sucks on dvd, only because Quentin removed like every awesome part from it.[/QUOTE]
Eh, I thought it was terribly boring.
Mostly just trailer trash women talking about their sex lives and then Kurt Russell pops by for 20 mins.
[QUOTE=Led Zeppelin;27839715]Reservoir Dogs is Tarantino's best. Pulp Fiction is an exceptionally close second.

I have to agree with you on the first thing you said. On the second I disagree, strongly.
It's one of the few War films that I can watch multiple times and not get bored of it.

I second that, I enjoy watching Hitler get unloaded on. It makes me feel powerful to see his corpse in a bloody pulp :smug:
I love Kill Bill, I actually saw it for about the third time with a few friends a couple of hours ago :3:
[QUOTE=evlbzltyr;27860835]I actually saw it for about the third.. a couple of hours ago :3:[/QUOTE]
I am tempted to watch it tonight. I want to have another Quentin marathon.
-Kill Bill pt: 1
-Kill Bill pt: 2
-Machete *Not Quentin but I want to watch it tonight.
That interview with Leno was the most normal I've ever seen Quentin Tarantino act.
And it doesn't surprise me that the way he talks is exactly like the way he writes.
Quentin Tarantino is the most entertaining living director in my opinion.
Reservoir Dogs- 10/10
Pulp Fiction- 8.5/10 (I'm sorry; I still loved it, though.)
Jackie Brown- N/A
Kill Bill Vol 1- 9.5/10
Kill Bill Vol 2- 8/10
Inglourious Basterds- 9.5/10
Never seen True Romance either. I fucking loved Inglourious Basterds and Res Dogs.
Jackie Brown was the most optimistic Tarantino film I have ever seen also you're right Reservoir Dogs is the best.
True Romance deserves a mention.
I just watched it earlier today. To be honest, I didn't think the film was overall anything special as far as Tarantino writing goes, but there are a few brilliant scenes, such as the "So tell me, am I lying?" scene.
