A screenwriting technique in which
two or more characters have a conversation that
has nothing to do with the plot of the movie or the current situation, but is usually added
to lighten the mood, or to develop character. This method can either work to the movie's advantage, or just slow it down.Coined
by Doug Walker, AKA the Nostalgia Critic, in his review of M. Night Shyamalan's "Signs."
1. Ugh, that new M. Night Shyamalan movie was horrendous. The plot
was nonsensical, the characters were dull, and there
was WAY too much Tarantinoing.
2. The movie was pretty
violent, but the Taratinoing lightened up the mood considerably.
