    IKR? It's because of them that the parody genre is dead beyond revival.

    Justin Lin. I hate everything about his overly flashy, super-polished and absolutely unfocused and directionless style. He manages to make technically impressive action scenes look like some third-rate pop music video. And he's even worse at filming anything that isn't action scenes.

    Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer. Because the ___ Movie movies are fucking horrible, and probably cross the plagiarism threshold, if anyone cared to try and stop them.

    Quentin Tarantino. The last truly good movie he made was Kill Bill 2, and that was nearly a decade ago. Since then, he has been making progressively shittier, dialogue-driven, action shlock-fests. He is a textbook example of what happens when someone with a bit of talent starts believe they are as talented as everyone says they are. See George Lucas for another sad example.

    TBH his movies have gotten progressively shittier (persecuted minority kills a bunch of racists ad infinitum) and he isn't showing much promise of recovering. loved his old movies tho.

    Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Natural Born Killers. Tarantino can do whatever the fuck he wants after making those movies.

    No. All those movies were great. The best thing he could have done after making them would be overdoseing on heroin. Instead he is going to subject us to so much shit, that we will eventually end up hating him worse than Lucas.

    Until he creates an anthropomorphic space rabbit/black stereotype, your word does not count worth shit.

    He made a movie with Jamie Foxx as the lead in a non-comedic role (at least not intentionally comedic). That is close enough for me.
    Django is the worst type of black stereotype. The vengeful nigger, out to right all the wrongs done to him. It is the perpetuation of this stereotype that keeps blacks apart from their communities, as white people are afraid they are going to get whipped like plantation slaves by any black persons that looks at them sideways.

    Nope. I fucking hated Django.

    -White bounty hunter in 1845 who has literally zero motivation to help the runaway slave from start to finish.

    -Miraculous first-time head shot on a moving target from a guy who canonically had never fired a gun before in his life, with a weapon that was probably firing well beyond its rated range. (I actually shouted "Bullshit!" when it happened.)

    -Anachronistic rap music slapping me out of the movie by ruining the damn tone.

    -Not letting onomatopoeia (i.e. when a sound suggests what's going on without it being seen) do its fucking job and opting instead to cut back to off-screen horror several minutes after the fact. (The third time it happened I just started making a masturbatory gesture at the screen as Tarantino was clearly trying to give the Academy an edgy HJ in hopes of winning an award.)

    -A final confrontation shoot out that was completely avoidable.

    Fuck that guy.

    My friends roped me into seeing it. I said that I didn't care for the guy, but hadn't seen anything from him in years. They told me the movie was supposed to be good. I gave it a fair shot. They were wrong.
