Question Is Tarantino cooler than Shyamalan?

Samuel L. Jackson thinks so.

Quote:
"But Quentin makes movies that Quentin wants to see. I don't think M. Night makes movies for the same reason. Quentin makes movies that are genres that he wants to see. "I like Spaghetti Westerns -- I'm going to write a Spaghetti Western. I like blaxploitation movies, too - so I'm going to make the protagonist black." So, he's got a blaxploitation western with Hong Kong undertones. The "Bullet Ballet" undertones. He wants to see it and I want to see it. I want to be in that kind of movie.

...There's, you know, 'I'm smarter than everybody coming to watch my movie.' Quentin's not that. He's just, "I want you to love my movie. I want you to love it and enjoy it because this is f---ing cool."
Leave it to Samuel L to break it down simple like.

Re: Is Tarantino cooler than Shyamalan?

yeah, I would think this is a non-issue - MNight made the Last Airbender, Q made Inglorious Basterds

Tarantino's career is not free of stink bomb movies, but MNight's career is a train wreck.

Re: Is Tarantino cooler than Shyamalan?

even when Tarantino strikes out at least he's trying to do something cool and not selling out with YA dreck or getting stuck working the same formula over and over

plus Tarantino's batting average is a hell of a lot higher than Shamalamadingdongs (which is a sub mendoza like 2 decent films out of 9?)

I haven't seen Death Proof/Grindhouse, but what are Tarantino's stink bomb movies?

4 Rooms immediately leaps to mind. I also wasn't crazy about Sin City or Planet Terror.

Re: Is Tarantino cooler than Shyamalan?

He only directed one segment of 4 Rooms, I guess the one he's in. That's a pretty decent movie IMO...not great or terrible. Personally I couldn't sit through Inglourious basterds. I get what he wanted to do it, but the movie is just beyond moronic.

Re: Is Tarantino cooler than Shyamalan?

I strongly feel that Inglorious Bastards is Tarantino's best movie.

Planet Terror was Rodriguez so I'm assuming you meant Death Proof and Tarantino directed one scene from Sin City.

Unbreakable was at the same level as the 6th Sense. His movies got steadily worse after that.

Except for the atrocious ending. Hard to overlook that. I don't think there was anything steady either. His other movies are junk.
