Zitat des Tages von Quentin Tarantino:
I'm a big collector of vinyl - I have a record room in my house - and I've always had a huge soundtrack album collection. So what I do, as I'm writing a movie, is go through all those songs, trying to find good songs for fights, or good pieces of music to layer into the film.
I always do an all-night horror marathon on Saturdays where we start at seven and go until five in the morning.
It's very important that every movie I do makes money because I want the people that had the faith in me to get their money back.
I've always thought John Travolta is one of the greatest movie stars Hollywood has ever produced.
If I really considered myself a writer, I wouldn't be writing screenplays. I'd be writing novels.
I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learnt some great dialogue.
I'm definitely not on Twitter. I do have a Facebook page and Facebook friends. It's a lot of fun, especially if you don't just start friending people you don't know.
I don't think Pulp Fiction is hard to watch at all.
Everything I learned as an actor, I have basically applied to writing.
My mom took me to see Carnal Knowledge and The Wild Bunch and all these kind of movies when I was a kid.
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.
I loved history because to me, history was like watching a movie.
I've always wanted to work with Warren Beatty.
I am a genre lover - everything from spaghetti western to samurai movie.
I actually think one of my strengths is my storytelling.
I couldn't spell anything. I couldn't remember anything, but I could go to a movie and I knew who starred in it, who directed it, everything.
I have a lot of Chinese fans who buy my movies on the street and watch them, and I'm OK with it. I'm not OK with it in other places, but if the government's going to censor me, then I want the people to see it in any way they can.
Movies are not about the weekend that they're released, and in the grand scheme of things, that's probably the most unimportant time of a film's life.
I don't believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more.
Novelists have always had complete freedom to pretty much tell their story any way they saw fit. And that's what I'm trying to do.
I don't believe in elitism. I don't think the audience is this dumb person lower than me. I am the audience.
I'm a historian in my own mind.
It's a standard staple in Japanese cinema to cut somebody's arm off and have red water hoses for veins, spraying blood everywhere.
All my movies are achingly personal.
To me, America is just another market.
The good ideas will survive.
Reservoir Dogs is a small film, and part of its charm was that it was a small film. I'd probably make it for $3 million now so I'd have more breathing room.
I love Elmore Leonard. To me, True Romance is basically like an Elmore Leonard movie.
I wasn't trying to top Pulp Fiction with Jackie Brown. I wanted to go underneath it and make a more modest character study movie.
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. But I knew CGI was gonna start taking over.
I've always considered myself a filmmaker who writes stuff for himself to do.
I'm very happy with the way I write. I think I do it good. But I've never really considered myself a writer.
Violence is one of the most fun things to watch.
I want do a Mandarin language movie. It'll probably be the next movie I do after the one I do next.
A writer should have this little voice inside of you saying, Tell the truth. Reveal a few secrets here.
Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.
