Replication Economy: Kill Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino is a rip-off artist. Not a talentless one, to be sure, but definitely a rip-off artist. Every few years, he jacks the work of truly innovative directors, and calls it his own. If you've seen Kill Bill, you might wanna Google two Japanese directors: Takeshi Kitano, and Takashi Miike. With special attention to two flicks called Ichi the Killer and Battle Royale.

These are two of my favorite flicks - and if you think Tarantino is good, you should check out how much better the originals are than the rip-off.

yeah, i know he cast actors from those movies in Kill Bill. A rip-off is still a rip-off, homage points or no homage points.
