I didn't say you had to have editing experience. I said you have to understand how to analyze a film better. You can't just say, "BAD EDITING!" and give no examples or actual criticisms.
Look at your criticisms:
- If you think the dialogue was weak, that's not an editing problem.
- If you think there were boring parts and it was too long, in a Tarantino movie, most of that is on the script*. There were subplots cut out of the final movie and it was still this long. Editing down another 5 or 10 minutes would still leave it at over 2.5 hours. That would've helped a few scenes, not the majority of the movie if you were bored throughout.
- Having too much violence is not an editing problem. That's a special effects and script problem.
