Quentin Tarantino on Kanye Saying Django Was His Idea, Perfect Movies & His Best Audience Member

Published on October 28, 2022

Quentin talks about loving parenthood, his son Leo being the greatest audience member, his hit song “Dinosaur Walk,” his collection of essays about movies called Cinema Speculation, his mom dating Wilt Chamberlain, going to the movies as a kid, dedicating an entire chapter to film critics, which movies he thinks are perfect, Kanye suggesting that Quentin and Jamie Foxx got the idea for Django Unchained from him, and the one classic movie he has never seen.

    Friends? Those that steal labor don’t qualify for that title. Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Kimmel Live haven’t paid for labor received.

    Friends may compromise for each other, we may volunteer at times, but when a rate is given, and there are union minimums, friendship means doing your best to match them. Friends pay each other and have each others’ back. Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Kimmel Live have not paid for material used and profited from. Funny, it’s usually called, “selling your soul” but it was actually an act of enslavement. You were sold.

    Someday, I suspect they will address my comments.

    Quentin seems to be a little unhinged and whacky.

    Tarentino strikes me as rather immature despite his obvious intellect.

    I want to read his book now. Btw Q.T. Please watch “The Sound Of Music” as it is definitely another perfect movie. Great interview.

    I knew Kanye was spouting out another egotistical lie when he said he came up with Django and someone as creative as Quentin just stole that idea and made the movie from that. He really tried claiming the success of Django all to himself. And according to Quentin it was actually a funny slave musical based on Gold Digger 😂😂 Doesn’t surprise me one bit

    All of these Hollywood players fawning over their children after encouraging generations of young people to avoid settling down and raising families.

    I tapped-out 3 minutes in. Hearing about other people’s kids is BORING AF, especially when delivered in a rambling word-gumbo. Have a minuscule amount of self-awareness, this is coming from a parent…

    Hmm, do you really need to be on drugs or alcohol, just to be on TV. Awesome film maker 😍

    I can’t believe Quintin didn’t mention the original “Night Of The Living Dead” as one of the perfect movies. It’s certainly right up there with the original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”. I consider both movies not only great horror movies, but great movies period. Perhaps he was just thinking too hard. Good interview regardless.

    Quentin was so funny and nice, and yes, “ Young Frankenstein”!🎉

    How can Kayne say anything is his idea?? He needs to learn to think first.
