Elaborating on my last post, the one about Tarantino… with Dude gifs for emphasis (and because IMO the Coen bros write better dialogue.)

I do like a lot of the visuals and stylistic choices in QT films
(Although there are many I’ve chosen not to watch cuz I’m not into over-the-top movie violence and/or racism, racial slurs, etc.)

but what i was saying in my “original” post (ie: where I basically said the same thing cracked already said) is that I don’t care for his dialogue at all. it just comes off as disjointed, nonsensical, and totally bizarre to me

I get why people like Quentin Tarantino. I really do.

Some of his stuff, I also like… but some of it, I’m just like “wow this is not for me, but I understand why people like it.”

None of that has anything to do with this post though, because I think the biggest issue I have with Quentin Tarantino is the person he actually seems to be, IRL, as an…

I actually recently read an article somewhere (probably Cracked) that said most of the speeches considered “great” in his films are literally just conversations he had with people.

He doesn’t write dialogue, he lifts it piecemeal from different contexts and people. That’s why it sounds all ridiculous. Like, he’s just a less-than-genius dude who got lucky basically.

Well shit

I thought I had suddenly managed put into words the opinions I have always felt about QT but never been able to express

but no, you’re right… that was totally a cracked article

and I read it right before I took a nap yesterday, forgot that I read it, and then felt amazed by the fact that—while randomly pondering about movies and stuff—the right words for my QT-related opinions just happened to pop into my head

………………………….but yeah your reblog comment just jarred my memory, and basically yeah, cracked’s top article yesterday or the day before included an entry about how QT comes off as really fucking awkward and insecure

Is there a word for the opposite of deja vu? Rather than “I feel like I have had this same thought a while ago, but I know I haven’t…” instead it’s “nope, I feel like having a totally original thought right now and I’m going to write a half-assed blog post about it, even though it’s actually just some shit that I read a day or two ago”

"Romeo can’t really be blamed for Ophelia’s death."

WELL THEY’RE NOT WRONG

How about this, though?

[Editorial Note: This “theory” depends on believing the Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet take place contemporaneously. So, for the sake of argument, let’s all agree that the events of both plays occur in the Spring of 1517 (chosen because of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, and the Reformational threads that run through Hamlet).]

See, in the Second Quarto and First Folio versions of Romeo and Juliet, a[n extremely minor] character appears with Romeo, Mercutio, and Benvolio at the Capulet’s Party (where, if you recall, Romeo meets Juliet for the first time).

Like Hamlet's Horatio, this Horatio is full of well-worded philosophical advice. He tells Romeo “And to sink in it should you burden love, too great oppression for a tender thing.”

[The American Shakespeare Center’s Education Blog discusses the likely “real” reasons for Horatio’s presence]

Let’s imagine that Horatio has travelled down from Wittenberg (about 540 miles) to Verona for his Spring Break. He hears about some guys who like to party (because, let’s be honest, besides getting stabbed, partying is Mercutio’s main thing). So, he ends up crashing the Capulet’s ball with them.

He is then on the sidelines as Romeo and Juliet fall in love, Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo kills Tybalt, Romeo gets banished, and both lovers are found dead in Juliet’s tomb.

This tragedy fresh in his mind, he returns to Wittenberg at the end of what has turned out to be a decidedly un-radical Spring Break and discovers that his bestie Prince Hamlet is leaving for Elsinore Castle because he’s just gotten news that his father, the King, is dead.

On the trip up (another ~375 miles), Horatio recounts the tragic romance he just witnessed in Verona. He advises (as he is wont to do) Hamlet not to mix love and revenge.

Hamlet takes Horatio’s advice to heart, breaking up with Ophelia so that he can focus is energy on discovering and punishing his father’s killer:

HAMLET
Ay, truly; for the power of beauty will sooner
transform honesty from what it is to a bawd than the
force of honesty can translate beauty into his
likeness: this was sometime a paradox, but now the
time gives it proof. I did love you once.

OPHELIA

Indeed, my lord, you made me believe so.

HAMLET

You should not have believed me; for virtue cannot
so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it: I loved you not.

Ophelia - burdened by the perceived loss of Hamlet’s love and his murder of her father - goes mad and drowns herself.

You see, if Romeo had waited literally a minute and thirty seconds longer (31 iambic pentametrical lines) - he, Juliet, Ophelia (and possibly the rest of the Hamlet characters) would have made it.

Oh my god before I even saw this ask I was like “I’m just gonna send her all the black items in the entire game.”

hahahahahahaha apparently I know your #aesthetic

btw nothing is unreasonable, I have so many K-coins that the digits go out of range and I can’t even see how many I have, but I assume it’s over 999 million… and I also have 1.887 billion dollars

where can i sign up to convert my Kim K money into IRL money??????? lol

THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Ha, yeah I think I’ve said before my aesthetic is hood goth.

Feel free to send me more stuff! Now that I’m A list I need a full wardrobe… Hahaha.

Ps if you figure out how to convert to IRL money feel free to pay off my student loans. I’m sure they accept K coins. Their value must be doing well compared to the dollar.

*trades k-coins for dogecoins*

*trades dogecoins for bitcoins*

*trades bitcoins for actual human souls*

ah, there we go… now i have the proper currency to pay off my student loans.

I get why people like Quentin Tarantino. I really do.

Some of his stuff, I also like… but some of it, I’m just like “wow this is not for me, but I understand why people like it.”

None of that has anything to do with this post though, because I think the biggest issue I have with Quentin Tarantino is the person he actually seems to be, IRL, as an individual human being with a personality.

He just seems so………… I don’t have a word for it.

You know how his characters kind of just spout out random words, some of which are plagiarized and some of which are just like random fun facts that may or may not be true? And how people really like that about his movies?

Well I don’t think it’s necessarily a stylistic choice. I think he literally just does not know how people talk.

Which is fair, because I too am really awkward at reading/expressing tone and subtext properly and all that junk.

Just saying, I love watching interviews with directors and screenwriters, because movie-making fascinates me, but I’ve never been able to get through an entire QT interview. I just cringe so hard that I have to stop watching.

Remember in 1993 when Jurassic Park was like…the end all, be all of special effects?

image

not gonna lie that still looks intimately real

I’m still somewhat convinced that someone sold their soul to create the special effects in Jurassic Park because that shit is over 20 years old and it still really, really holds up, better than the stuff in a lot of current movies, even.

Fucking witchcraft, man. 

I mean yeah, the brachiosaur at the beginning is clearly CGI but it’s still AMAZING-looking CGI for 1993!!!

The practical effects though…….. those are just amazing. I love directors who still use practical effects.

Here’s an article on how/why the movie still stands the test of time, but to sum it up, it’s basically a mix of 70/30 practical/digital FX, respectively, and the CGI was done waaaaaaay better than it usually was done at the time (and arguably even now) because Spielberg is just a brilliant innovator who figured out HOW to make it look so good. 

For example, darkness and rain aren’t out of place at all for a scene that’s meant to be scary… but the darkness and rain also do the job of making 90’s-era rendering look like something crisp and real that just happens to be obscured by darkness and rain.

Compare that to the infamous Anaconda 3 with it’s shitty CGI snake.(Sure, Anaconda 3 didn’t have the same budget as Jurassic Park, but considering it was made in 2008, you’d expect the technological advancements to have made up for the difference, right?) It’s basically the same premise: a woman is in a jeep-like vehicle, being confronted by a giant reptile. However, the fact that this scene takes place in BROAD DAYLIGHT makes a huge fucking difference. The direct light makes the snake look like a goofy plastic toy, whereas the same snake in darkness and rain could have potentially looked at least somewhat sinister.

Anyway, fuck yeah Jurassic Park!!!!!! It gave me nightmares as a very young child, but by the time I was 10 it was my favorite movie.

What the fuck happens in League of Legends

It’s funny because I’ve never played LoL and I don’t currently know anyone who plays LoL and tbh I have no idea what it is or what you do in the game……
But the two meanest assholes I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting IRL were obsessive LoL addicts, and they’re the only two people I’ve ever met who played it.
So I don’t doubt this post at all…
