Tarantino or a fake?

08.23.2004

This news item contains both the BEST and WORST aspects of the Internet. As of now, this is only a rumor, but apparently writer/director extraordinaire Quentin Tarantino has finally taken a liking to the Internet and opened up his own blog diary, in which he responds to everyone's emails and keep folks up to date on his life and projects. That said, and before you check it out believing that it is, in fact, 100% Quentin Tarantino, we have yet to confirm this fact, despite the person responding on the blog, sounding a whole lot like him (folks on our board are debating the issue right here) By the way, he supposedly has an "editor" typing everything for him, which would explain the perfect spelling/grammar (for which Quentin is not well known)

I have contacted Miramax to find out whether or not this site is really QT or not, and will hopefully get back to you with a concrete answer by the end of the day. Until then, try to figure it out on your own. Like I said before, the Internet is a great place when it wants to be, allowing major players in the industry to communicate freely and directly with their fanbase, but on the other hand, it can also be quite dangerous, since the anonymity of it all, can easily lead fakes to pretend to be other people, etc... Click below to check out the BLOG for yourself and read some of the quotes from his site below (from either the "real" or "fake" Quentin Tarantino)

In terms of the KILL BILL Special Edition commentary track:

"But KILL BILL...I couldn't get out of doing a commentary on this one because they said without it the Special Edition would just look like a stupid marketing scheme, since the original DVDs had no commentaries, just making-ofs, a deleted scene, trailers, and other small features. So like for the new DVD set it's gonna be jam-packed. Despite rumors there won't be five editions of KILL BILL out by December. This special bootleg version with commentary, docs, etc. will be the ultimate version and will be sold in the Quentin Tarantino Collection (due out in November/December)."

In terms of KILL BILL: VOLUME III:

"So I'm sitting here thinking, "Fuck, if I could, I would," and I'd like to make it my DOLLARS TRILOGY, but I don't think it's a realistic possibility at this point, alright. If I did make it it would be years and years from now (like 14 or 15) and the plot would be about Vivica Fox's daughter seeking revenge on The Bride, after she killed her mother. It's cool because that scene where she kills her in front of the girl in KILL BILL seemed sort of open to expansion. But by then Uma would be a lot older. I'd be a lot older. It would have nothing to do with killing Bill. It could be called KILL BRIDE but that's fucking corny. By then I'll be lucky to still have a job, and nobody will give a rat's ass about KILL BILL anymore (or, if I'm lucky, it'll just be a fond memory).

If I get the chance...fuck yeah I'd do it...but basically right now I've got my whole career for the next twenty years planned out. I want to take my time with directorial projects. I don't want to be taking on two fucking movies a year like Spielberg did after he sold out, alright. That isn't me. I want to keep the same quality going so in the next twenty years I'll be lucky to make five or six movies. I want to go out in glory. KILL BILL 3 might be a good bookend to my directorial career but chances are slim that it would ever actually happen. Uma hasn't really shown interest (we talked briefly about it a few weeks ago). I think she's past that shit now and I don't blame her. I love KILL BILL but the question is...in 15 years will I still want to be making it? Will Uma? Will I wanna risk fucking up the first two? Hell no. So we'll see where this shit goes.

What do you think about CGI and LOTR?

"I fucking despise CGI. If I wanted that shit in movies I wouldn't be watching movies -- videogames are fun because they're interactive, at least. Movies packed with CGI is just lame. Ain't no fucking fun watching cheap-ass Hobbits jumping about in front of lava. Sorry, LORD OF THE RINGS was another forgettable CGI-enhanced flick as far as I'm concerned. I don't respect CGI in movies because it's not a tool anymore -- it's a convenience. Fat bastards are able to sit in their chairs and edit movies now at the touch of a button. Too bad the fucking graphics look shittier than my Nintendo."
