NBK. I love what Stone did to it. I read parts of the original script over the net and I really think it was tweeked to perfection. True Romance and Dusk Till Dawn were both great too, but NBK just took more risks and had better acting.

I really need to give True Romance a second look. I watched a really fucking lame VHS about 4 years ago and couldn't really make much of it. And since there's no portuguese DVD, I didn't see it again since. I have to.

NBK is a great film and I read the draft of the screenplay by Tarantino and although I enjoyed it, I really happy Oliver Stone did what he did.

FDTD sucks? I disagree my friend. George Clooney's character
in FDTD is in the top 10 of badest mutherfuckin' badasses in a
film. My only complaint about FDTD....Salma Hayek didn't get naked.

hahaha, i agree.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

i dont dislike any of those films, but Quentin should truly direct his own scripts.

perhaps you suck for being about 7 years too late for the film?

actually, avoiding the film for that long was a smart decision. most people would call it a piece of shit if it weren't tarantino. apart from the slight presence of tarantino's style that is evident in the first half, which wasn't enough to save the film, what the fuck was good about it?

Well, it was just a fun vampire slasher kind of movie. Those cool characters from the first half of the film were thrown into a vampire movie and the only way out of there (for those who survived, that is) was to just blow up as many weirdos asthey could without ever stop beeing cool (especially Quentin and Clooney). And then you got lines like "Did they look like psychos? Is that what they looked like? They were vampires. Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don't give a fuck how crazy they are. "

Yeah, that's a pretty bad flick.  Some of the dialogue did make me cringe, although it's still fun to watch all the gore.  I'm a sucker for that stuff if the mood hits me...

1. True Romance
2. From Dusk Till Dawn
3. Natural Born Killers

FDTD Is fine until the vampire stuff, then it's just stupid. Although in a fun way. NBK is 3rd only because I read Tarantino's version and really wish I could see it. I like Stone's version too, but it's pretty damned heavy handed. TR is great fun, although, I wish Tarantino directed it.
