Who's Peter Goddangitbitch?

He certainly influenced people, but you are confusing that with innovation.

So what are some good movies influenced by him?

Guy Ritchie wears Tarantino's influence on his sleeve.

Fair enough. His films are as fun, at times even more fun, than Tarantino's.
But still nothing I'd get too excited about.
IMHO Takashi Miike's movies, for example Ichi The Killer, are what Tarantino could be, if he were as cool and ****ed up as he and his fans like to pretend he is.

I think Guy Ritchie's films are way worth getting excited about (I like him way more than Tarantino).

Also, Jeremy Saulnier could be thrown in the ring as someone who was both influenced by Tarantino's style and as someone who improved on it.

Perhaps on Green Room.
Blue Ruin, which I prefer, is in no way tarantinoesque.

Ja I was thinking The Green Room, especially the "this is a gun that shoots bullets" part with the bouncer.

Off the top of my head:

Get Shorty
Suicide Kings
The Gun
Very Bad Things
Boondock Saints
The Usual Suspects
Sexy Beast
And ya, Ritchie's LSATSB and Snatch.

The Usual Suspects is ten times more overrated than Tarantino.

Some fun ones, sure. None that are great.

Totally. Rewatching that movie is just painful.
