Ironical but somewhat true.

I get what you mean; I never liked Pulp Fiction
that much, and I only liked the first Kill Bill
; however, Reservoir Dogs
is excellent. Over all, I think Tarantino's style is not improving.
Overrated filmmakers, well needless to mention that I abhor Spielberg & Cameron.
Peter Jackson (the King Kong re-maker and the guy behind the overrated "Lord of the Rings Trilogy") is in my opinion the XXIst century's alternative to D.W. Griffith.
But Griffith actually brought about some important changes to cinematography, still visible today.
EDIT: Just remembered a good TV show: Deadwood
; unfortunately they stopped airing it here, and I lost track of it.
