Now I'm going to talk about two of my favorite movie directors of all time, Quentin Tarantino and Guillermo del Toro, I'll first talk about Tarantino
He's a huge movie geek, like a lot of us here in this website, His first feature film "Resevoir Dogs" was excellent, the cast was excellent, the story didn't drag, and the writing was outstanding, than, two years after it, he came up with "Pulp Fiction", now in my opinion, Pulp Fiction is Resevoir Dogs but 10 times better, the Cast is better, The story is a lot better and the writing is amazing, and I love Pulp Fiction, It's in my top 10 favorite films of all time list, than he directed "Jackie Brown", I havent watched it yet, so I'm not going to comment on it, after Jackie Brown, he a 4-Hour movie cut in two parts called "Kill Bill"
Now I know most of you know what I'm talking about, but I'll get to the point soon, Kill Bill was cut in two parts, Kill Bill: Volume 1 and Kill BIl: Volume 2, The first Kill Bill was a Martial Arts film, The second, was still a Martial Arts film, but kind'a focused on story more, and both of the volume's were excellent, I liked the movies a lot, but than came Death Proof, in his worst movie in my opinion, Resevoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill were a lot better than Death Proof, the cast wasn't that amazing, Kurt Russel was great though, the writing wasn't that good, and it felt really stupid at times, but for some reason, I just like it, A perfect example of a Guilty Pleasure, I don't know, I watched it twice now but I don't know, It feels very stupid but I still like it, but two times is nothing, I watched Pulp Fiction five times, but if Tarantino made something like Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill again, I wouldn't like it as much and of course if he made something like Death Proof again, I might completly hate it, I don't want to see another Death Proof.
And the film is making right now "Inglourious Basterds" is looking great, I can't wait for it, because it's something he never made before, It's a WWII Movie and according to him it's like The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly, I don't know, I'm just really excited about it, but than, I found out that he want's to make a remake of Faster! Pu$$y Cat... Kill Kill, and that movie is considered a cult classic, but I don't really want to watch it because it sounds stupid, It's about huge-breasted woman who beat guys or something like that, I know I'm sounding ignorant, but don't you realize how stupid it looks and sounds, and he want's some porn star named Tera Patrick to be in the lead role and there are rumors he wants BRITIANY SPEARS to be in the film, I hope to god things don't work out and this whole idea gets cancelled, because we get it Quentin, you want to have badass babes in your movies but seriously stop it, because now it seems like he wants to direct porn, Now like I said, I loved Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill and I think Tarantino is one of the greatest movie directors of all time, but he should try something different.
Guillermo del Toro:
I'll get straight to the point, Del Toro is one of my favorite directors, I only watched three of his films, "HellBoy" "HellBoy:II The Golden Army" and "Pan's Labyrinth", My favorite movie of his is Pan's Labyrinth, but honestly I like them all equally, but the thing is, he should get an american writer and co-write any movie in english with him, because the writing in Hellboy 2 wasn't that great, sometimes it was bad, anyway, He's directing the prequel to The Lord of The Rings Trilogy, The Hobbit and The Hobbit 2, the first Hobbit is coming out in 2011 and the second in 2012, and It's gonna take a lot of time, I mean 4 years to get both these movies out, but I heard that he isn't that big of a fan of Lord of The Rings, and I don't know, but It doesn't seem like he's that excited to make these films, I mean he already has a lot of future projects to work on, like Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and he seems like he wants to do those instead.
So I don't know, I think Peter Jackson should direct The Hobbit since he directed the trilogy and those turned out great, so he kinda understands how to make a Lord of The Rings film and Del Toro doesn't have that experince, yeah, Del Toro would probably make a movie that a lot more gorgeous but I don't know, I want Jackson to make The Hobbit and Del Toro to work on Frankenstein, but this isn't that big of a problem as the problem I have with Tarantino.
I'll finish off saying I respect both this directors.
