People wanted to see an entertaining movie. Even if it was dumb like Planet Terror. Instead, Tarantino delivered a mind-numbingly boring movie. He might have actually lowered the bar.

And I don't think people are throwing around the "genius" shit. They are simply calling it how they see it. Tarantino made a boring film. If that was his intention, congrats, but I'm not going to say he deserves praise for making a bad film like bad filmmakers made bad films 30 years ago.
