I was in Heathrow Airport looking through the magazines in the Newsagency when I came across DVD Review with a big TARANTINO across it and "15 years of Quentin’s blood, babes and bullets!"
They talk about a variety of things, but at the end of the third article (talking about Grindhouse), it reads:
Guns, girls and grunts aside, Tarantino lets us in on an urge of his just before we let him slip back to the set to point Kurt Russell in the direction of some screaming girls. “I’d really like to do a kids’ movie, because I love the way kids respond to movies they like,” he says. “When I worked in the video store, the kids would come in and want to see the same film again and again but their parents would get mad at them. I’d just think to myself, ‘that’s cool, they like it, why give them something else?’ They know they like that movie and I love that kind of audience.” Tarantino does Spy Kids? Where do we queue?
I work in a video store and I get that all the time. Kids always want to see the same films over and over. Films that they loved. And the parents are always angry at them because of it.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind it. I don’t think any less of Rodriguez for Spy Kids. They made a lot of money. The Spy Kids films are examples of that type of film that kids watch over and over.
