Film director Quentin Tarantino he is not comfortable with the new films that have been released in the last decade, and for this reason he does not even shrink from making a stark criticism of current cinema, dominated by superhero premieres.
During an appearance on The Video Archives podcast (via joblo), the creator of Pulp Fiction spoke of what he believes are the worst stages of cinema.
“Although the ’80s were probably the time when I saw the most movies in my life, at least as far as going to the movies was concerned, I think that the cinema of the 80s is, along with that of the 50s, the worst era in the history of Hollywood. Tied only for now, tied only for the current era!”, said the manager.
However, Tarantino does not consider everything that has come out lately to be bad.
He says that the 1970s is what he considers to be the best in American cinema, and the director values bets from these years positively. “who do not conform, those who stand out from the rest” What Top Gun: Maverick, West Side Story, Crawl Y Dr Sleep. In fact about the sequel top gun and Steven Spielberg’s musical the director said that “They provided a true cinematic spectacle, the kind I almost thought I wasn’t going to see anymore. It was fantastic”.
