In the script I own he is only credited for "Radio Background Dialogue" (I just checked).
But I could be wrong.
That's what IMDb says too. I suspect he was more involved than that. According to Avary, he had to stop associating with QT cause the guy would just suck ideas out of him and then . . . suddenly they were QTs ideas.

Which can be accounted for by the fact that the two together can achieve a creative synergy that neither apart is capable of (although some think that Avary's Rules of Attraction--which I haven't seen--has merit).
True.

We'll probably never know...
I could check my Quentin Tarantino: The Man and His Movies book by Jami Bernard. I think it has something on this subject.

Peter Gunn (1989)
Bought the dvd thinking it was the original one. Edwards redoes the 60's (well, the '60's tv version of the '60's ) in the '80's like nothing had happened. Yeah, like noted at IMDB, the scene in Gunn's apartment is exhilarating. But I don't even like the music except the famous theme. Still Strauss is very good and this earns the movie a 6\10.

Next of Kin (1989) - 5/10

Not much to say. Appalachia versus the big city. Bunch of actors playing roles they've been playing/will play their whole lives.

You never said, it was QT who said it was what he was trying to do. Since Kill Bill vol.1, he always try to put at least one "best fight/car chase/car crash/final/etc scene ever" in each of his movies. I'm ok with that (trying this kind of things is a great way to do great scenes), but to me, the final of Kill Bill 1 was just a really good fight scene (I have in mind many other better ones that I wouldn't even call "great").
Unlike the car crash of Death Proof, which is really one of best ever.
And I think you'll agree about the car chase of Death Proof, which is good and fun but not great either.

agree with the bold.

vol. 1 has its scenes: the animation, which I liked. japan at night, specifically the motorcycles cruising the streets. the beheading which I feel like I've seen somewhere before. the flashback was pretty good. the final fight and the hospital scenes are the only other weak sequences that I remember. I liked when Uma visited Chiba but it's tough to argue how necessary those scenes are to the story, unless there's something I'm forgetting, which is possible. I haven't seen it in awhile. Vol. 2 was just very average all around and the showdown was even more mediocre than the final encounter in vol. 1.


what are your favorite fight scenes? I'm curious.

I knew you'd agree about the bold Smiley My favorite fight scenes:

1) Apocalypse Now, Col. Killgore attacking the village (of course)
2) The opening of The Wild Bunch
3) The lobby scene in The Matrix
4) Custer attacks the indian village in Little Big Man
5) Indiana Jones And the Last Crusade (against the tank)

And, in no particular order, some of the scenes that are not great but good enough to be better than the final of Kill Bill 1:
The last scene of Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid
The opening of Saving Private Ryan
Most of the fights in Terminator 2

Of course I didn't count the chases, with or without car (We Own The Night, truck vs bicycle in T2, half of the scenes of Mad Max 2, a few scenes of The Matrix, the begining if Casino Royal, two scenes of Blade Runner...), but a few of them could be considered as "fight secnes" too.

What about you?
(if somebody else answers we'll have to open a new topic)

Fixed!

(I'm a free man, I have the right to love the final scene of Pat Garrett and the Sundance Kid if I want, you fascist former republican!)

Is that the scene where the Bolivian Army shoots the Mexican kid who's throwing rocks at Garrett?

The Fortune Cookie (1965) - Were it not for the character of the pro football player (it is not credible today, but maybe even 40 years ago) this would be the perfect comedy. As it is I give it only a 9\10.

I'm of the group that feels it loses all momentum after Lemmon leaves the hospital. I agree that the athlete was a terrible character.

Il momento della verit (1965) "The Moment of Truth" - 7.5/10
I like to think that I'm for animal rights and stuff but I couldn't help liking this movie. The bullfights are cool, mystical and honestly dangerous. Very cinematic subject. The fights are obviously real and that's why they never get boring. The story of the young bullfighter is not totally original but interesting enough. And all the time you know there's only one way his journey can end.
