What if we lived in a world without Quentin Tarantino movies? I’m sure most people would hate it. The guy is a legend. He is actually one of the main people in Hollywood that i look up to. All his talent, his success – and he never went to film school. Tarantino recently announced that after his 10th film, he will retire from directing. Of course if you listen to music or watch sports, Jay-Z retired twice and is still going, Michael Jordan retired twice and so on and so on. To sum it up, people can always come back after a retirement. If you are doing your math, that means Tarantino has two more movies until he calls it quits(Yes he counts Kill Bill as one movie). He recently spoke to buyers(promoting The Hateful Eight) at AFM about the retirement:
“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” he explained. “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, and so I’ve got two more to go after this.
“It’s not etched in stone, but that is the plan. If I get to the 10th, do a good job and don’t screw it up, well that sounds like a good way to end the old career. If, later on, I come across a good movie, I won’t not do it just because I said I wouldn’t. But 10 and done, leaving them wanting more — that sounds right.”
