well I just think that when making a film, one should definitely not look at the money side or how well it’s gonna do…
recently I watched the Paul Newman interview on the Butch & Sundance DVD and he said, that some movies are just being made for “the movie being made” and the others are being made for the money, for a budget, for a schedule, for a release date.
that pretty much gets it to the point. people nowadays are working business in movies, they’re not trying to get a great idea on screen, they’re trying to get any idea on screen to make money with.
now i think, QT’s approach to movie making is very good, he thinks about what he’s like, what the fans would like and and he doesn’t really care about the success at the box office.
these two points you posted, I actually agree with it.
- there are tons of movies that just suck, but have a few scenes in it that make you buy the movie (Mission Impossible 2, for example)
- of course Blonde is a fucking asshole (see topic in the Dogs section), I never doubted that. I don’t know why people sympathise with the fucker, I don’t get that. I didnt like him before OR after he cut the poor SOB’s ear off…
