Tarantino Said He “Couldn’t Care Less” About What Black Critics Had to Say

Let me start off by saying that I LOVE Tarantino movies.  They are so interesting and full of action.  Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2 are so bad ass.  I watch them at least once a month.  Now, that I got that out of the way, let’s talk about his recent comments regarding his film Django Unchained.  Tarantino recently interviewed with New York Times T Magazine where he talks about critiques from Black critics.  He said:

If you’ve made money being a critic in black culture in the last 20 years you have to deal with me,” he told T Magazine. “You must have an opinion of me. You must deal with what I’m saying and deal with the consequences … if you sift through the criticism, you’ll see it’s pretty evenly divided between pros and cons. But when the black critics came out with savage think pieces about ‘Django,’ I couldn’t have cared less.”

Quote from Huffington Post.  You can read the entire article here.

I am not offended by what he said.  It’s not because I’m a big fan of his.  Screen writers have their own interpretations and visions.  Dajango was Tarantino’s vision or his interpretation.  If you don’t understand or agree with what he is expressing, is it his fault? No. It’s okay to disagree.  It’s okay to have your own opinion.  You don’t have to like his movies.  That is all he was saying.  I feel he would have told white critics the same thing.  Actually, I think any screen writer would have said the same thing.  In my opinion, all of this hype is over nothing.

  1. I agree with that. Just like people who comment on my posts or videos and don’t like them and send hatred messages, that’s their opinion. I don’t care one way or the other. People really do have the tendency to take things out of context and it’s always negatively. I too like Tarantino films. People get all bent out of shape for nothing.
