Quentin Tarantino will only make one more movie.

You like this idea? My view is as long as you can do it do it.

I'll tell U what the Eye in the Pimp stand 4!

Im not really the biggest Tarantino fan. It's like, ever since Pulp Fiction he's been a parody of himself. His dialogue is not as cool as he evidently thinks it is. There's definitely flashes of brilliance throughout his career but he's too inconsistent to be considered one of the greats. I really enjoyed Once Upon A Time In Hollywood though. And, believe it or not, I thought the book was even better. So I wouldn't be averse to his quitting movies in exchange for a career in writing novels. Maybe he can do books of the movies he never got around to making. It might be the only way we'll ever get The Vega Brothers.

I assume you're not a fan then? lol

I can understand that. The man comes across as a complete arsehole in every interview I've ever seen him do. Really full of himself.

I can't stand him, and I don't think his movies are that interesting. My friend was hysterical during Pulp Fiction. I was aghast and found no humor in it. It was just long and stupid.

Django Unchained was worth one viewing.

I can't say I've watched his other movies beyond clips here or there, although I think maybe I did watch the first part of R.Dogs.

Yeah that's fair enough. His movies aren't for everyone. For what it's worth though, I would recommend Jackie Brown. Because it's based on a book you don't have that "Tarantino dialogue" that ruins his other movies. A lot of the best lines in the movie are lifted directly from the book. In fact, you could just do yourself a favour and read the book instead. Other than Tarantino changing the ethnicity of the lead character it's exactly the same story. The book is called Rum Punch and is actually a sequel to another book called The Switch. So I'd recommend reading that one first.

I think his greatest strength as a director is depicting action. It's a pretty rare skill to be able to build scenes where you know what is happening at every moment, where everything is clear and not a muddle of closeups and cuts. Watch Kill Bill for its precision and clarity.

Lately, of course, he's gotten lazy. Instead of writing original stories, he takes existing, historical ones and gives them his own fantastical conclusions.

After rewriting Hitler and Manson, I expect his final film to take on, oh, Columbine. The high school's karate club combines forces with the drama club (the Jets and Sharks are in their final rehearsals) and the chemistry club, who fashion crude bombs at the last minute, to thwart Klebold and Harris's planned slaughter. Evil nerds get what's coming from film's nerd avenger.

What am I thinking? Tarantino would have too much sympathy for those guys. Never mind.

It's kind of sad that that sounds plausible.

Overrated hack who bad mouths Bruce Lee everywhere he goes and I'm not talking the scene in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Brad Pitt. He goes on podcasts and trashes him. Ripped him off for his movies enough times though.

And now he's saying Marvel actors aren't real movie actors.

So - Samuel L. Jackson - who was in, arguably, Tarantino's biggest hit, isn't a movie star or real actor because he plays Nick Fury?

Robert Downey Jr., who has a laundry list of hit roles and movies, isn't a real actor?

Who else: Mickey Rourke, Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Josh Brolin, Tom Hiddleston... I mean, seriously? He could attack the franchise or the movies, but to take to the level of calling people, many of whom have been in it way longer than him, not real actors is just glib. And frankly, a good heaping of jealousy - a trope I rarely go to on things like this.

I actually expect no less level of assholery from this guy.

To be fair to the guy, I don't think that's what he meant. I think he was just commenting on the fact that there are no major movie stars anymore. Other than Tom Cruise, of course. Marvel movies have been successful because they are Marvel movies. Would anyone really be interested in movies like Shang Chi or The Eternals if they weren't Marvel movies? I saw a clip of an interview Anthony Mackie did where he essentially made the same point Tarantino made. He used Schwarzenegger and Stallone as examples of movie stars and said people like that don't exist anymore in modern Hollywood.

Of course, Tarantino IS an arsehole but I don't think he's necessarily wrong in this instance. The MCU has some great actors but few, if any, that you could call a "movie star" in the traditional sense. There are no Stallone's*, Cruise's or Schwarzenegger's.


*Of course, Stallone is in Guardians Of The Galaxy but he's not the lead.

I forgot to mention Quentin Tarantino creepily defended Roman Polanski on the Howard Stern show. Howard and Robin really thought it was weird too the way he was saying the 13 year old girl knew what she was doing and it wasn't rape. It was really pretty sick. Both Howard and Robin argued with him but he just kept digging a bigger hole for himself.

This is probably the stupidest argument I've ever heard. And I've heard (and been part of) some very stupid arguments. It sounds like Tarantino is arguing over the dictionary definition of the word "rape" and because he believes that it was not a violent act then it was not rape. Which is really fucking stupid to begin with because it is absolutely rape. But to make things worse, it doesn't even come across that he has any problem with the idea of a grown man having sex with a 13 year old girl as long as the girl gives consent (which a 13 year old can't do anyway). Any time that question is posed in this interview he just repeats "it's against the law". Like, he's just stating the facts without actually condemning the act. Even if we agree with his premise that Polanski is not a rapist (which he is) then we have to accept that he's definitely a paedophile. Which is fucking worse!

I have no idea what Tarantino was thinking here or what point he thought he was trying to make but he's made himself look like an even bigger prat than I already thought he was.

Sequel to “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” has my vote.
Perhaps set in the 1970’s

I think he's just trying to shit on something he has no part of, and that has been wildly more successful than anything he's done. And that's saying something considering his following.

I think he considers himself Hollywood elite who looks down on everyone else. When in fact... he's not. His insecurity shows through in everything he does. Including talking.

Yeah I don't doubt that there's an element of jealousy to his comments. And I think you've hit the nail right on the head regarding his insecurities. He likes to position himself as like a modern day Hitchcock combined with Kubrick but deep down he knows he's nowhere near their level.

"I'm not a Hitchcock fan" and then literally 10 seconds later he says "Hitchcock is one of the greatest directors who ever lived". It's like his brain can't keep up with his mouth. Shit just comes out and I wonder does even he know what he does be talking about half the time.

I've only seen a few of his movies. Well first of all it's a different era. I think all of his movies look great and are shot very well. But I have to say "the Birds" scene had me laughing, it's when the children are getting attack. It looks like they are jogging in place in front of a blue screen.

This was in 1963 though. And it still has better special effects than She Hulk, Thor: Love & Thunder and Black Adam. Where The Birds differs from those is that it's a good film regardless of the effects lol
