But damn, if that wasn't a groundbreaking filmmaker, I don't know what is. Spike is the black equivalent of Woody Allen. Tarantino doesn't even come close to that kind of relevance. *Didn't listen either, just read the transcript*


In film? How so?

Spike is typical.  Passion of the Christ was made by mel gibson I believe.  I think it is lunacy for anyone to criticize something without first hand going to see the movie.  Talking movie.  Not life experience so please don't bring up little jimmy falling in the pool at the neighbor house.  MOVIE.

Disagree. Lots of jewish folks did not see "The Last temptation of Christ". That didn't stop them from criticizing, did it? He knew the premisce to be a spaghetti western about slavery and that was plenty enough to form an opinion. I saw Django on the net and it was everything I expected it to be from what I read about it (and it wasn't much). I just don't like all this criticizing of Spike by black people as of late. Yes, he does act a little bit too self important at times. But at the same time, he deserved a lot more accolades than he ever received. "Do the Right thing" is a movie that is taught and dissected in film school TO THIS DAY. The man is a genious and was a voice for his generation and his community, whereas Tarantino will be remembered in a few decades as a clown who makes clown movies



As someone who works within a related field  I can tell u  this is completely false.

This ain't even about quality of work bcuz at the end of the day, all of that is subjective anyhow

What has QT done for Black ppl? Are we better off with Django and QT? Hmmm...

Very false and speaks volumes that you don't know Tarratino's (sp) work.  Spike is not in the league of Quentin.  Spike is in his on league and may be jealous based on Quentin budget and hype behind a realease of a Quentin movie.  Now if Spike would do a Cleopatra Movie that would move him up a notch in my book. lol

Pulp Fiction ushered in a new generation of filmmakers. Every frame has been analyzed in film school. Every line in the script analyzed. Say what you want about him but to deny him of that is silly.
