Quentin Tarantino is one of the most talented and brilliant directors and writers to ever live and some of that genius can't be contained when he's speaking his mind. Here are some of his best lines.
1.) "Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He's weak... he's unsure of himself... he's a coward. Clark Kent is Superman's critique on the whole human race.”
2.) "When I was on The View, Barbara Walters was asking me about the blood and stuff, and I said, 'Well, you know, that's a staple of Japanese cinema.' And then she came back, 'But this is America.' And I go, 'I don't make movies for America. I make movies for planet Earth.'"
3.) “Sure, Kill Bill is a violent movie. But it's a Tarantino movie. You don't go to see Metallica and ask the f***ers to turn the music down."
4.) "When you gotta go out and make a movie to pay for the kid's private school and for the three ex-wives, don't talk to me about your artistry. It's their job. It's not my job. It's my calling."
5.) “I'm not a Hollywood basher because enough good movies come out of the Hollywood system every year to justify its existence, without any apologies.”
6.) “Anything that I'm not interested in, I can't even feign interest.”
7.) "CGI has fully ruined car crashes. Because how can you be impressed with them now? When you watch them in the '70s, it was real cars, real metal, real blasts. They're really doing it and risking their lives."
8.) "L.A. is so big that if you don't actually live in Hollywood, you might as well be from a different planet."
9.) "I steal from every movie ever made."
10.) "I don't think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience."
11.) “That's when you know you've found somebody really special. When you can just shut the f** up for a minute and comfortably share silence.”
12.) “I tried to watch the first episode of season one of True Detective, and I didn’t get into it at all. I thought it was really boring. And season two looks awful. Just the trailer---all these handsome actors trying to not be handsome and walking around looking like the weight of the world is on their shoulders. It’s so serious, and they’re so tortured, trying to look miserable with their mustaches and grungy clothes.”
13.) "I really liked The Town, which also came out in 2010. It was a good crime film. However, next to The Fighter, it just couldn’t hold up, because everybody in The Town is beyond gorgeous. Ben Affleck is the one who gets away with it, because his Boston accent is so good. But the crook is absolutely gorgeous. The bank teller is absolutely gorgeous. The FBI guy is absolutely gorgeous. The town whore, Blake Lively, is absolutely gorgeous. Jeremy Renner is the least gorgeous guy, and he’s pretty f—ing good-looking. Then, if you look at The Fighter, and you look at those sisters, they’re just so magnificent. When you see David O. Russell cast those sisters, and you see Ben Affleck cast Blake Lively, you can’t compare the two movies. One just shows how phony the other is.
