When a director causes me to almost give up the medium of film as a whole, I think I have reason to dislike him!
Day 12 – A Film By Your Least Favorite Director
Pulp Fiction (1994, Quentin Tarantino)
I can’t stand Quentin Tarantino, the films he makes are ugly, derivative, misogynistic, and unnecessarily violent. Pulp Fiction is the best example of why I think he’s not just a terrible filmmaker, but a complete hack. This film lacks imagination, as I said the last time I watched, Pulp Fiction is a movie made by someone who thinks he’s cool and wants the world to know how cool he is. Tarantino isn’t cool though, Pulp Fiction isn’t cool, nothing about this movie or the rest of Tarantino’s work is cool. Pulp Fiction is boring, it’s screenplay is shoddy, the actors try, but when a hack is behind the wheel their work is bound to be cut to shreds. Everyone else loves Pulp Fiction and they love Tarantino, I get that, but it doesn’t change just how terrible I think he is and just how wretched of a film I find Pulp Fiction to be.
