People can say whatever they want about tarantino movies they want. I hear they're overrated, stupid, corny and all kinds of stuff, but I still think he's one of the best directors ever.
He has an extremely unique movie style, great actors, and great stories. His movies are actually fun to watch, and still great.

Totally with you on that.    
All of my relatives over 40 say that his stuff is crap and makes no sense - its all just pointless violence and racism. My unclie even calls him a "maniac and a sadist" for writing so much violence into his movies (even though he's only ever seen Reservoir Dogs and will turn around and watch old westerns or all the "Die Hard" movies any day of the week. He also has never seen Django, but is convinced that Jamie Foxx is a racist for playing a character who says "Gettin' paid to kill white people? [can't remember the rest of the line]").    
   
But if they would actually take one goddamn minute to stop prejudging the movie before they watch it and actually pay attention to the story instead of dropping jaw at the sight of blood, they maybe they would realize that the violence and general "bad things" that happen in his movies are all for a reason.    
   
For instance, in Reservoir Dogs, you spend most of the movie watching a group of racist, angry, cop-killing maniacs trying to save their own asses. But by the end of the movie, you see that all of their bad deeds have culminated in their deaths. And that is the message being sent.    
   
In Pulp Fiction, you see a couple of contract killers as protagonists (for half) of the movie. You see them succeed in their evil endeavors, but there is a reason for this too. Sam Jackson's character had to succeed to have that near death experience. This allowed him to change his ways and attempt to become a better man. Had he simply shrugged it off and continued upon his evil path in life, he likely would have been in that apartment and been killed by Butch the boxer along with John Travolta's character.     
   
TL;DR I'm taking out the residual frustrations from previous arguments with family members.
