What do you mean "real" vs. "cinematic"?

I think he means genre pictures. If Kill Bill was his samurai/kung-fu movie and Grindhouse was his American B-movie, then Django Unchained will be his spaghetti western. I don't know that it's really a fair assessment on Randy'z part. Tarantino has always played with genre rules and expectations.

That's what I figured he'd meant by cinematic, but I have no idea what he means by "real". I mean, Pulp Fiction is pretty self-explanatory and it's a Tarantino 90s movie, so, in short, fml for trying to understand.

You're right, it doesn't really make sense. Both Dogs and Pulp were nods to cinema as much as Kill Bill and Death Proof were. The difference is that a lot of people didn't realize Tarantino was referencing/homaging cinema then. Pulp is a HUGE amalgamation of crime noir tropes and genre-bending. But at the time, a lot of us kids just saw a really cool fucking movie. Now our cinema awareness is stronger, so we're noticing things. It's an unfair criticism, though.

I wonder how True Romance would look if Tarantino was at the helm. I am sure we would have a fairly different film, and within that, depending on when it was made I see two different films pre and post Jackie Brown. I also think this of Natural Born Killers.

I'm looking forward to this picture though I still need to watch Death Proof. Seems every time I think of it I end up watching something else instead, and quite possibly Pulp Fiction again.

Pull yourself together, man. You're missing out. Brad Pitt was a bad casting choice, but the rest of its pretty good.

The restaurant scene between Landa and Shoshanna is one of my absolute favorite Tarantino scenes and reason enough for Christoph Waltz's best supporting actor Oscar. And the pub scene's just as good.

yeah i mean in the real vs cinematic way....even though all of his movies are " cinematic" , he has put them into 2 categories...the real ones ( reservoir dogs, pulp, jackie brown) and the cinematic ones ( natural born killers, kill bill, inglorious basterds, from dusk till dawn)....
i want more from the first batch of movies...i love all his movies, he is my favorite director and screenwriter but i wish i had more from the " real" ones.

Looks like some filming has started (or is about to). Jackson Hole is only a few hours away from where I live--it would be cool to see the Tetons in the film!

Took me a second to recognize Christoph Waltz. The man can grow an enviable beard.

I wouldn't doubt it.

But it traces back to the old spaghetti western days. He's a spaghetti western fan in general, as he was a japanese sword fighting movie fan with Kill Bill. It's why IngloriousBasterds had spaghetti western music and the opening title "Once Upon a Time in Nazi Occupied France". Two of QT's favorite spaghetti westerns are Viva Django (1967) and Django (1966)

I like the trailer, but I almost wish he had chosen someone other than Jamie Foxx. I don't see characters when he's in a movie. I just seeing Jamie Foxx trying to act.

I'll go with it. I sure as hell didn't want Will Smith. I'll try to think of someone else...
