Quentin Tarantino writes the best dialogue in Hollywood.

Nobody comes close to him when it comes to that. He did for film dialogue in the 90's-present, what John Hughes did for it in the 80's.

Now in terms of storytelling, it's really a toss up..

Tarantino did Pulp Fiction but Nolan did Momento


They're both great storytellers, So i would have to give the edge to Tarantino based on the dialogue in his films

IMO:

"Memento" >>>>>>> "Pulp Fiction"
"The Dark Knight" >>>>>> Whatever you deem to be QT's 2nd Best

Just my thoughts people...

Nolan is still considered a new head in the directing game. His first movie was in 97.

Qt has made the best movie of all time when it comes to dialog and plot. Nolan is on the rise tho.

Remember that Nolans budget is way higher. He got more to work with

A few Batman movies and Inception



Memento
Insomnia
Batman Begins
The Prestige
The Dark Knight
Inception

The Dark Knight Rises is coming.



Seriously... I'll give it to QT right now. My opinion might change when Nolan's done with the Batman films.

I like his movies, but I'm not the biggest QT guy... I think he relies on being shocking and provactive far too much.

There are a few Director's of his Generation I'd easily rank Higher:

Nolan
Fincher
PTA

Just off the top of my head.

PTA is the best one mentioned in the thread.

I can only enjoy movies with a "twist/big reveal" at the end so much before I have no "want" of watching it again.

That makes me pick Tarantino.

For me all 3 are very close... Like splitting hairs... But if forced to rank, I'd go the way I already did...

Nolan
Fincher
PTA

Anderson has gotta pick up his production time... The whole waiting 6 years to make a movie thing is gonna get old quick... Fincher has a few misses, and has the fact that he doesn't write against him... But ultimately, I just boils it down to one thing:

I haven't once walked out of a Theater after seeing a Nolan movie and not been thoroughly and completely pleased that I just went and saw that movie. And I've seen them all in the Theater except "Following" and "Memento".

No other comteporary filmmaker I can say that about.

It may be fair, and it may not be fair...

But I downgrade him because as much as I like MOST of his films, I've never seen a single one on the Big Screen.

And I've never felt like I missed anything by not doing so.

Might be a strange thought process, but I do think on a certain level, if you're a GREAT filmmaker your films should demand to be seen on the biggest canvas possible.

Anderson's films don't require that.

At least they don't for me.

That's your fault you didn't go see his movies on the big screen.

Yeah, I still have the romantic notion of going to the Cinema and watching movies on a big screen... And the act of feeling compelled to do that, especially in these days and times when you can watch movies anywhere and anytime, meaning something.

It's my own personal conclusion... What can I say.

Co sign on this QT is good but he does rely on shock value alot whether its blood and excessive gore or dialogue (N word). Maybe its me but its sooooooooo noticeable in his films. Especially when you got Sam Jack yelling them.
