i remember reading an interview of a guy from video archive who said QT got pissed at him because he laughed at American Ninja.

Haha, that’s one of the greates QT-related things I’ve ever heard, as I love American Ninja. Bet he loves the other Cannon-greats too. Cannon got a reference in Four Rooms too.


#63

i remember that the guy said smg like "Quentin said ‘don’t laugh, i take these movies seriously’ "


#64

He takes movies seriously???questionmark

Why does that surprise you?



That’s one of the most important and great character traits of his. He hates it when people make fun of a movie, or put themselves above it, etc. Like making fun of “silly” movies and B-movies, camp, trash, etc. He is a true movie lover in my eyes.

In a german newspaper tarantino had to name his favourite screenplays of all time (in 2004): he called “out of the past” one of the best! So it´s one of his favourite crime films.

Does anyone own this list?


#71

i didn’t know it, thanks. but where does it come from? actually i’m very surprised he would name two films by Shunki Iwai as his favorite japanese films of all time!! i liked the films i’ve seen from him but i would never consider him the best…

Elvis Mitchell: Under the Influence" Quentin Tarantino (2008)

I couldn´t find the whole interview anywhere.

He names some of his favourites in there and he talks about douglas sirk, bogart, melodrams etc.



Can anyone report from this?



The list with the japanse titles (link above) is from the empire magazine (2003/2004)


#73

Ahhh, he has forgotten THE LONG DAY OF VENGEANCE. He used the title track in Kill Bill Vol. 1 and in an interview he said that this is one of his favourite spaghetti western movies.



I´m still waiting of his “war” or “guys on a mission list”. I need to buy more unknown movies …


#74

tonight in german television “das vierte”: “Take A Hard Ride” (Einen vor den Latz geknallt) feat. Lee Van Cleef, Jim Bron, Fred Williamson (dir.: A. Dawson).

I have a book about tarantino. he days that this is one of his three favourite dawson-movies and one of

his favourite sp. westerns. ok, he didn´t take this movie in his recent list and the book is from 1994…

Well if QT likes spaghetti westerns so much he should get a kick outta the rerelease of COMIN’ AT YA! in 3-D!

Tony Anthony even pays homage to Quentin in an early segment in his promo for the film…



check it out!



Been in collaboration with Tony Anthony for a long time with this and now it’s finally ready to hit the net.



The following is the official website for the re-release of Comin’ At Ya! in 3-D.



http://www.cominatyanoir3d.com/



The site contains a 5 minute promo reel of the film.

In flat only. Just keep in mind it will be in 3-D in the theatres.

Some slight changes have been made to the film (for the better).

Think what George Lucas did to Star Wars in 97’ only this time it won’t suck.



After you view the promo take the time to explore the site.

We have a gallery of the new film’s posters as well as a short history on how this re-release came about.



As the weeks go by much more will be added so be sure to register yourself on our mailing list so you can be one of the firsts to be notified of the additions.

Soon we’ll have an online store that sells posters, t-shirts, baseball caps and even the films rousing score by Carlo Savina.

A video gallery will be added eventually and will feature radio and tv spots from the original theatrical release of Comin’ At Ya! back in 81’.

Behind the scenes footage, interviews and video reviews of other Spaghetti Westerns will be made available for download.



The site also has great sounds to set the mood on every page, so be sure to have your volume up!

At the moment the sound is only for Internet Explorer users.





Check it out and register with us!

And come back often!

;D Holy fuck, I still need to see SO many movies. It will take time I guess, most of the list is spot on. The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly will always remain the best western ever made. Gotta love Tarantino

Is this gonna’ be in the theater or no? I’m pretty pumped to see a classic looking western in 3d, which is kick ass!
