Well, exactly, [quote=“stanton, post:2650, topic:190”]
and despite his films can always be understood as homages to that film or that genre, his films are in the end very different from those whom he paid homage.
Personally, I would discard all that homage thing, and consider them modern SWs. Even if homages, why can’t a homage be considered a proper movie in that particular genre. I understand, that as a homage it somehow stands out, but why not have them in, really. Yes, QT always made his own thing, but that can be said about many spag directors. At least, H8 is not a homage at all imo. If done in seventies by a director with italian name (and some ita ancestors backing it up) and Morricone, it would be certainly considered spagh, such as many not so spagish Sws are.
A year ago, we even voted for Uncle Quentin to get into SW Hall of Fame.
Well, I feel ehm, ehm, that H8 won’t be allowed to stay in anyway, so I chose an alternative.
