Quentin Tarantino is talking about his retirement again

Quentin Tarantino is really serious about this retirement business, isn't he?

It would appear that every time he gets a chance to speak, he wants to make sure everyone knows that, after he registers 10 films to his credit, he's hanging it up to go do something else - novels, plays, angry Reddit threads about ruined childhoods, something. He reiterated that very same point over the weekend as he received a lifetime achievement award at the Jerusalem Film Festival. 

"I am planning to stop at 10 (films), but at 75 I might decide I have another story to do.” 

If we're counting KILL BILL as one film across the two volumes, that leaves only two films left for Tarantino to make before he leaves the life and he's officially out. He's also only 53 years old at the moment, so, if he does later decide he wants to make a comeback, we're going to have to wait 22 years for that to happen and unfortunately some of you will be dead and are going to miss it, so that's a bit of a bummer. But I think this is all about appreciating what you have in the moment before it's gone. 

If QT is really serious, then we should treasure the time we have left with him by looking forward to what he's got left in the tank and also understanding what we're going to be losing by revisiting his old films. For example, INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, which Tarantino claims contains the best character he has ever written but that also almost didn't exist. 

“Landa is the best character I’ve ever written and maybe the best I ever will write. I didn’t realise [when I was first writing him] that he was a linguistic genius. He’s probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish.”

"I was getting worried. Unless I found the perfect Landa, I was going to pull the movie. I gave myself one more week and then I was going to pull the plug. Then Christoph Waltz came in and it was obvious that he was the guy; he could do everything. He was amazing, he gave us our movie back.”

Whew... That was a close one. We're not going to have too many more of those with Tarantino in the future, so enjoy them while they last.

Good!

I hope the door slams shut on your way out.
Oh, and do us all a favor and blowtorch that door until it's melted completely into the foundation. Also, make sure all windows are nailed shut.

Well, if he stops making films and does tv, I could be ok with that. Something like a season of True Detective with Tarantino at the helm could be great.

I would love to see him do a mafia/gangster type film. Just imagine the dialogue, cast, and explicit violence and action he Collins write, wrangle up, and direct.

Film 10 isn't for atleast 5 more years.

He's not going to start shooting Film 9 until late 2017/early 2018.
Don't burn your Tarantino stocks yet.
Also he's not specifically saying he's gonna do something at 75. He's saying "I'm gonna go do something else for awhile after 10, but there's no reason I can't go back on that."

I agree he's probably overhyped/overrated, but I've never not been extremely excited to see one of his movies.

Ah man, no more over hyped mediocre. overly long, snorefests filled with pointless annoying jargon that do nothing but inflate the guy's ego while fanboys blindly think they're watching great cinema

I wish he'd shut the fuck up

Dude hasn't made a good movie since Kill Bill. Everything since then has been bloated and dull.

I agree bro. He's gotten almost preachy. I loved kill bill especailly volume two. Since them his movies have dissapointed me. It seems his style has evolved to a place my movie interest does not travel too. OH well, I suppose it would be unrealistic to love all his movies.

True, and I get that some people like what he's doing now. Just doesn't do it for me.

Dude thinks Kill Bill is better than Inglorious Basterds.

Sad.

I don't (want to) believe him.

Steven Soderbergh, Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino have all said for years they're going to retire young. Soderbergh has been saying 'this is my last movie' for years now. Tarantino is one of my most favorite directors and I hate the thought of him retiring, although I'd rather have 10 extremely solid films of his masterwork that would be studied for generations than to have him going down the road of Francis Ford Coppola. Directors can lose their touch with age. 2 words: Crystal Skull
