Quentin Tarantino Confirms Next Movie Will Be His Last

[QUOTE]"I've been doing it for a long time; I've been doing it for 30 years. And it's time to wrap up the show," said Tarantino, 59. "I'm an entertainer. I want to leave you wanting more." The director has long promised to make only 10 films.

His films changed filmmaking as we know it.

He's already done 10 if you count Death Proof.

He could do worse than to go out with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Spielberg should have retired after Schindler's List. Every movie he's made since then has only hurt his reputation. Once directors turn 60, they lose their touch and creativity.

by Anonymousreply 14November 22, 2022 3:01 AM

Agreed R14. Schindler's List was Spielberg's last truly great film,

Terrible actor and hard to look at. Who does this asshole think he is to say the N word? Overrated director who made a few good movies but got too arrogant and rehashed every 60s and 70s film cliche to death. He has some serious paraphilias but I'm happen he uses film as his channel because I can see him totally being his Dusk to Dawn character in real life. HE was too good in that role to be just pretending. I'll check out his podcast because he clearly is a big cinephile and knows a lot about film.

Jackie Brown was great and seems so overlooked. If he stopped after that, he could have been a cult legend. I prefer Jim Jarmusch and David Lynch.

Quentin Tarantino movies are in the go-to boring straight guy "basic and safe interests" package, also including Star Wars, Spiderman, Batman, Steelers, Dodgers, Fight Club, Foo Fighters, In-n-Out Burger, Ray Bans, Entourage, Chipotle

The media really likes to pressure people to like things now writing millions of PR articles praising these movies and calling them some great commentary and how "we don't get it." So when a movie comes out by certain directors like Tarantino, Nolan, Scorsese, Spielberg, etc. We have to like it or else we're gaslighted. I really hate that

He's really obsessed with Black and Asian people, violently killing women and women's feet. None of his movies have any substance, they're all big spectacles that don't change you or make you see things differently. I don't think there's anything wrong with that but people think he's the greatest filmmaker ever but I don't see it. Isn't art supposed to change you? Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown were some of his best because they had a point. But a lot of his other movies are nonsense. I liked Kill Bill for the time but it's far from perfect, just stupid fun.

R21 Right!! He wouldn't have the courage or the balls or the mentality to do a gay themed movie. He is Old School all the way.

by Anonymousreply 26November 22, 2022 3:35 AM

His last directing film. Surely he will produce and maybe even continue to write. But I get it. I worked a few years on the production side of filmaking and it long hard work and best left for the young people. I realized I was getting old when I couldn't work 12 hours, go out and drink with the crew then come back with two hours sleep and do another 12 hours.

R26 do we want him helming a gay themed movie? I believe there are scads of scads of gay people better equipped to tell a gay story — the opportunities should go to them, in my opinion.

I rather gross straight men with their fucked up views on sexuality not tackle male homosexuality in any form. They already make a mockery of lesbianism. I don't understand why gays on here get mad about women writers at least they don't portray us as depraved perverts and emphasize the romance aspect.

by Anonymousreply 34November 22, 2022 9:41 PM

A lot of directors seem like incels to me. Like they were nerdy awkward losers in high school and found film as an escape. Then they get into the movie business and act out all their sexual fantasies in film like hiring barely legal actresses to do unnecessary sex scenes and nudity and rape. There's gay versions of this like Bruce LaBruce and Gus Van Sant.

by Anonymousreply 35November 22, 2022 9:47 PM

Well, Quentin and Daniel Day Lewis can sit around and talk about how they’re not doing movies anymore together. Maybe they can start a podcast and try to convince other actors and directors not to make movies too. Didn’t Steven Soderberg declare this once also and then went back on his word?

Why does he have to announce this? He's only 59 and there could be something he wants to film in the next 10 years. I suppose he could UNretire.

I actually like his moviemaking a lot when he’s not wallowing in sadism thinly disguised as “punishing really evil people.” He’s been a broken record with that revenge malarkey for most of his career.

It’s such a shame. He could have been a great director, and little splinters of light shine through the leering sadism, dressed up as pious retribution, in most of his movies.

I disagree on the 1950s too. 50s and 80s are such random decades to choose and I'd like to hear more in detail why he singles those two as awful aside from the modern-day. I feel of course every decade has low-effort garbage but it cranked into high-gear come to the 2000s.

by Anonymousreply 52November 23, 2022 5:20 AM

Imagine the accusations of sick perversions if a mainstream award-winning filmmaker just happened to include close-up shots of men's feet throughout his films unrelated to the plot just because he gets off on them

It gives me nightmares the thought that people had sex with Harvey Weinstein and Quentin Tarantino for their big breaks. No amount of money would be worth it to me to be touched by those ogres.

by Anonymousreply 54November 23, 2022 5:26 AM

He elaborated on what he said, R52.

[quote] In a recent episode of his and Roger Avary’s The Video Archives Podcast, Quentin Tarantino took aim at the films of today, as well as those from the 1980s. “Even though the ‘80s was the time that I probably saw more movies in my life than ever – at least as far as going out to the movies was concerned – I do feel that ‘80s cinema is, along with the ‘50s, the worst era in Hollywood history,” Tarantino recently said on his “The Video Archives Podcast” (via NME). “Matched only by now, matched only by the current era!” Tarantino compared today’s lacklustre cinema to the political correctness and set of rules of the ‘50s and ‘80s; The restriction of creativity and cinematic innovation, the requirement to stick to the status quo prevented the most important filmmakers from the 1950s from properly flourishing in the industry. “In the ‘80s, it was self-censorship. It was just the rise of political correctness after the 70s where everything was just ‘go as far as you can,’ then all of a sudden everything got watered down. Everything was cynical, then all of a sudden in the ‘80s all that was washed away and the most important thing about a character was that they were likeable…Every character had to be likeable and the audience had to like everybody”.

by Anonymousreply 55November 23, 2022 5:37 AM

Funny enough I think those restrictions led to more creativity from the creators and use of symbolism, innuendo and other shortcuts. Pushing the limits just for the sake of it can lead to shitty films with no purpose as well. While the Hays Code did get in the way of many directors' visions, they simply used nuanced methods and still got what they wanted even if it wasn't blatant. There is a serious lack of suggestion nowadays, everything is just blatant or the audience is handheld too much.

Also, I really don't see how 80s films were PC in anyway. The movies seemed to promote more nationalism, consumerism, stricter gender roles and praise of white suburban life. But were they really PC? Many of the characters didn't even seem likable just upwardly mobile, straight, usually white and fit the Reaganist ideal of hedonistic, greedy and ambitious. To people outside that world, those movies were actually offensive and removed from reality. Plenty of sexual harrassment played for laughs, homophobic and racist jokes, use of violence to resolve conflicts, ethnic stereotypes, xenophobia, etc.

Jackie Brown is Quentin Tarantino’s best movie.

I think Robert Rodriguez's movies. He doesn't pretend like he's making high art. He makes engaging action films with some surprising social commentary sprinkled in.
