Perhaps one of the best kept secrets in cinema is that list of movies and series that the most famous directors regret having seen. Although in not a few cases they have spoken about it, it is not usually common for them to refer in bad terms or in a negative way to the productions of other colleagues. However, from time to time they give clues. It is the case of Quentin Tarantino.
During the last months, the director has gone through some microphones and recorders to leave ideas in relation to current events in cinema and his career. Among these reflections, the ones that have attracted the most attention are those that have to do with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the DC Extended Universe. Bottom line: Quentin Tarantino wants nothing to do with it.
The funny thing, in this context, is that none of the movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe or the DC Extended Universe is on his personal list of feature films that he would never recommend or consider the worst. Next, based on a work by Start Factswe present five productions that Quentin Tarantino does not want to know anything about again.
Five movies you shouldn’t spend time on, according to Quentin Tarantino
Within the director’s suggestion list, there are different types of films. These are the ones that Quentin Tarantino does not recommend:
Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions
matrix It is one of the director’s favorite films. However, the aftermath of it affected his overall idea of the franchise. At the time, the filmmaker came to say the following: “The aftermath they ruined the mythology for me and actually moved [la película de] matrix down on my list.”
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me
21 years ago, Quentin Tarantino questioned one of his cinematographic influences, David Lynch. In 1992, he was quite critical of Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me. At that time, said: “If all you do is these little arthouse movies for 10 years for a million or two dollars, you can go to hell.”
Natural Born Killerswritten by Quentin Tarantino himself
This case is very curious. the script of Natural Born Killers, released in 1994, was written by Quentin Tarantino. However, the direction was by Oliver Stone. Why is this important? From Tarantino’s perspective, Stone altered various parts of his script. In this regard, he explained that after writing the script he found that the film was different: “Why didn’t (Stone) do at least half of that? [escrito en el guion]? It was made for him!”
The Hunger Games
Quentin Tarantino is a faithful follower of battle royale (2000). Therefore, based on this cinematographic reference, the director questioned the franchise of The Hunger Games. On the Jimmy Kimmel show, he said the following in 2022: “I am a big fan of the Japanese movie battle royalewhich is what it was based on The Hunger Games. Well, The Hunger Games they just plagiarized it. It would have been amazing to have directed battle royale”.
A case similar to that of matrix. Quentin Tarantino had been left with a good taste in his mouth in relation to the first film. But with the following the charm is over. In Consequence of Sound said the following: “The aftermath was horrible. They are like the fruit of a poisonous tree”.
