He's known for not holding back with his opinions on Hollywood movies that aren't his own. Heck, he's even outspoken about his own works at times – both in praise and criticism.
One of Quentin Tarantino's latest slams was directed at Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett, the director claiming in an interview that none of her "arty" movies "have a shelf life". Ouch. Even more recently, however, Tarantino targeted David Robert Mitchell's supernatural horror movie It Follows.
The picture was received remarkably well by critics and scary film fans when it was released last year. But it turns out Tarantino wasn't one of the many people that did enjoy the eerie story of a sexually-transmitted disease that takes the form of an evil entity that stalks its victims and eventually kills them if they don't pass the disease on. In fact, he could tell you exactly where it all went wrong...
Speaking about what he thought of the picture, Tarantino told Vulture: "It's one of those movies that's so good that you start getting mad at it for not being great. The fact that he didn't take it all the way makes me not just disappointed but almost a little angry."
The 52-year-old wasn't finished there either, going on to share his negative thoughts on how the film depicted the entities, the 'its'. "Mitchell broke his mythology left, right, and centre. We see how the bad guys are: they're never casual. They're never just hanging around. They've always got that one look and they always just progressively move toward you," he continued.
"Yet in the movie theatre, the guy thinks he sees the woman in the yellow dress and the girl goes, 'What woman?' Then he realises that it's the follower. So he doesn't realise it's the follower upon just looking at her? She's just standing in the doorway of the theatre, smiling at him, and he doesn't immediately notice her? You would think that he, of anybody, would know how to spot those things as soon as possible. We spotted them among the extras."
The Django Unchained and Grindhouse director then went on to reveal that he thought part of the storyline didn't add up, particularly the changing nature of the 'its' themselves. He said: "The movie keeps on doing things like that, not holding on to the rules that it sets up. Like, okay, you can shoot the bad guys in the head, but that just works for 10 seconds? Well, that doesn't make any fucking sense. What's up with that?
"And then, all of a sudden, the things are aggressive and they're picking up appliances and throwing them at people? Now they're strategising? That's never been part of it before. I don't buy that the thing is getting clever when they lower him into the pool. They're not clever."
After ripping the depiction of the villainous 'its' apart, Tarantino concluded by pointing out the flaws in the main character too, judging her actions towards the end of the film. "Also, there's the gorgeously handsome, geeky boy — and everyone's supposed to be ignoring that he's gorgeous, because that's what you do in movies — that kid obviously has no problem having sex with her and putting the thing on his trail. He's completely down with that idea," he said.
"So wouldn't it have been a good idea for her to f*** that guy before she went into the pool, so then at least two people could see the thing? It's not like she'd have been tricking him into it. It's what I would've done."
