Quentin Tarantino Loves Violence In Cinema (Video)

You probably look at a Taratino classic like “Reservoir Dogs” (or his coming flick “Hateful 8”) and think: Wow, this is over-the-top violent! But hey, Tarantino isn’t really about all of that blood and gore for really real.

No…yeah… He is. No apologies or eff’s given about what any hater thinks about it either. ‘Tino is all about VIOLENCE. Watch above and prepare to go ‘whoa!’

(Good point about Japan’s ultra-violent cinema in its most peaceful society; one NOT equating to the other.)

Ultimately, what I feel is it’s a problem with White Supremacy in this country.
Quentin Tarantino

Whoa. Lean in, folks. Get this frank commentary on police brutality from a member of Hollywood’s elite. Someone who could expect live his entire life without actually experiencing it, but compelled to speak on it, check out what Quentin Tarantino has to say about civic authorities abuse of power and its roots. His comments so far overall have been fiery enough to get police & organizations across the country to call for a boycott of “Hateful Eight” (the forthcoming latest Tarantino movie).

Um, yeah. Good luck with that, officers…

The Hateful 8 (Trailer)

Tarantino. He does not do many movies. But when he does… they’re among the most interesting works of art in the world! Count on the “The Hateful 8” to keep that rep up. An all-star cast featuring a lot of actors who have a lot of time in on Quentin’s sets. Should make for a power-packed delivery of this old west flavored film.

In “The Hateful 8,” set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a Black former Union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all.

Quentin Tarantino Argues With Interviewer About The Violence In The ‘Django Unchained’ Movie (Video)

There was some great dialogue going on in this interview with director Quentin Tarantino initially regarding the movie Django Unchained, which I thought was a very good film. The real dialogue involving slavery & why Quentin Tarantino made the film began to unravel when the reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy of Britain’s Channel 4 News tried to steer discussion to fit whatever agenda he was attempting to push. In Quentin Tarantino’s defense he’s answered questions about violence in his films for years so for the reporter to retread the same questions was not only a bit nauseating but derailed what could have otherwise been a good & insightful interview with more answers regarding the film. I don’t believe reporters & interviewers need to be all “buddy buddy”, “Friends”, or “D*ck riders”, when dealing with their interview subjects, but they don’t necessarily need to be a douche either.

Quentin Tarantino Considered Making a ‘Luke Cage’ Movie (Video)

Yeah man! Can you imagine? In the above clip, grindhouse movie guru Quentin Tarantino actually thought about producing a Luke Cage (one of Marvel Comics’ first Black super-heroes) movie… or something like it. Tarantino is a comic enthusiast, too. So, you know it would have been raw!

“After ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ I had considered doing a Luke Cage, Hero for Hire movie. [Hollywood producer] Ed Pressman owned the rights at that time, and we talked about it,” Tarantino said. “I talked to Larry Fish [Laurence Fishburne] about being Luke Cage, and he really liked that idea. Then I ended up writing Pulp Fiction.”

– Tarantino to MTV News

Well… you never know. In the meantime, “Django Unchained”Tarantino’s newest movie (due out Christmas Day) – should be good.

Question: Is that pro wrestler Dave Batista from WWE in the trailer, too? So that’s where he went!
