And isn't it possible that we tend to think of men as the pop culture quoting gender, so some can't accept women doing it?
Well, can't accept them if they do it poorly, or if the script isn't as good. I mean, I'm not really buying the theory that I just can't "handle" Quentin Tarantino's Empowered Women. I suppose the acting probably suffers partially from DP having one foot in Planet Terror, full-blown retro-grindhouse camp, and one foot in QT's more singular exploration of his own ideas. I.e. actors thinking to themselves "oh wait, this is SUPPOSED to be cheesy, right?" The women handling QT's dialogue in DP don't feel as in on the joke as they should; it's stiff.
Anyway, one could say the same of Fellini and Godard, too. They create worlds that are very particular to who they are (or were).
I can't really speak to that, but sure -- I'm certainly not the one who has a problem with it. I understand how it could annoy someone, but obviously I like QT's world/style/voice, even if it didn't work for me in DP as well as some others.
