okay, how about this one?  favorite Tarantino interpretation?  as in, which one of these Tony Scott/Oliver Stone/Robert Rodriguez directed, (Tarantino scripted) movies was your favorite?  (feel free to make this a poll).
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I can't choose. I love all three equally. From Dusk Till Dawn was closest to Tarantino's style in terms of color and dialouge. True Romance was more serious and lacked some of the color (though still GREAT) and Natural Born Killers is its own intentity.

I really like From Dusk Till Dawn...
when I watch True Romance...I can't help to think about how different/better it would be had Tarantino directed it.  With From Dusk Till Dawn...there is a little bit of Tarantino style.

i fear there will be similar differences of opinions over kill bill. i believe that pretty much anyone who goes "blah charlie angels rip off" at the trailer just doesnt get it and probably wont like the film. this is the same for dusk till dawn, its total cheeze exploitation cinema. some like it, others dont. (look at taz, he like everyhting cheezy and sucky  :lol: )

I'm actually really glad QT didn't direct any of these. It's nice to see other people handling his stuff and, in the case of NBK, rewriting it and turning it into something almost 100% different (and quite arguably better) than what Tarantino would have done with it.

So of those, Natural Born Killers would be my favorite, and also the best (I'd go into how brilliant it is, but that's a whole different thread). True Romance is second, and From Dusk Till Dawn is a very definite third.  The whole argument about how it feels like two different movies is certainly true, but I think that's the point. It's fun, for the most part.

How about that behind the scenes doc on NBK? It's almost as awesome as the movie itself.

Man, I love all those films equally. But if I had to...

1)FDTD
2)NBK
3)TR

I get annoyed now when all hell breaks out in FDTD, I just want them to carry along as normal.

I loved all three, but for sake of choosing:

1.True Romance
2.Natural Born Killers
3.From Dusk til dawn
So far I have been unable to think of a signature

nbk was rewritten by two different writers after stone got a hold of it. stone had said that he liked tarantino's original script, but essentially it was a B-movie, and he wanted to do something more.

On a similar note, I'd like to see Tarantino direct someone else's script, just to see what it would turn out like.

Well, he did adapt Rum Punch, y'know.  ;)  And really, it's HARD doing an adaptation of someone else's work.  Writing a screenplay from a book is very similar in theory to directing someone else's screenplay.
