And since when did Halloween mean random fancy dress? When I was a kid the idea was you dressed up like a witch or a mummy or a vampire not fucking spiderman or wonder woman.
I haven't come across many of his fanboys in real life. Apart from Spielberg and Scorsese he's a director everyone seems to know. A bloke on here or ESB said it before in regards to his homages in that he's like a DJ that picks some of the best stuff from obscure films and uses them in own and that's fairly accurate I think.Tarantino fan boys.
Now I like Tarantino films - well apart from Death Proof - but all these people who think he's the second coming and his films are masterpieces need to shut the fuck up. His films are nowhere near as clever or as good as people seem to say they are, they are often too long, self-indulgent, bloated with unnecessary dialogue that he's just put in because he thinks it's cool and not only that these are conversations that nobody has in the real world. His constant "homages" to past films are tiresome as well.
He makes good, enjoyable but flawed films but please stop with the "Oh he's one of the greatest directors of all time" one of the most influential definitely but great no.

Going back to the directors thing. Is it just me or do 90% of the population pretend not to know who famous actors or directors are. Or pretend that they can't remember an actors name until someone says it. I swear I can't be the only person who has had this. People are like "I saw a great film the other night with your man who plays James Bond in it" . You'd immediately say Daniel Craig and they'd be like yeah yeah that's him. Its the immediate acknowledgement that you're right shows me that they are pretending not to know who he is. Come on man. Nobody is going to think you're a massive geek because you know who the actor that plays James Bond is. I know not everyone is really big into films but stop fuckin pretending you don't know who any of these people are.
GABBA GABBA HEYAlso I can't stand clever cunts. I had some prat in a plaid shirt come up to me yesterday in the pub and asked me if I "could actually name any Ramones songs" referring to my t-shirt, so I reeled off about a dozen in quick succession and as the shit eating smirk disappeared from his face I asked him how many trees he's cut down this week to which he replied "I haven't cut any trees down" so I just said why you dressed like a fucking lumberjack then.
