But it deserves credit because he made it just like people used to make bad films. Giggle giggle.

WTF? You are judging EXACTLY by the paint brush. You aren't looking at the fact that he made a bad film. You are trying to give him credit for making a bad film like they used to make bad films.

So he tried to make a bad film and did a bad job. CLEARLY, he should be lauded for that.

He wasn't trying to get bad reactions from the audience. He said it was his best script and he thought kids from today who never saw the 70's films would LOVE it and they might rediscover the old 70's films because of it. It's not like he put that film up there like an Andy Kaufman performance.
Tarantino did a bad job making a cheesy film. You can cop pleas and make up excuses for why he's misunderstood but I think if you look at it on a basest level, the fact is clear: it is a bad movie.
