Quentin Tarantio is a terrible person

Quentin Tarantino: "'True Detective' is awful"

Quentin Tarantino pokes at the popular US series "True Detective" and its leading actors Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn ...

Quentin Tarantino (52, "Django Unchained") likes to call things by their names and makes no secret of his opinion. Not even when it comes to colleagues. In an interview with the portal "vulture.com", the 52-year-old filmmaker gave the award-winning HBO crime series "True Detective" a violent swipe: "I tried to watch the first season [...] and found it it's really boring. " Then he takes on the second season. They look "terrible": "Alone in the trailer - all these beautiful actors who try not to be beautiful and run around as if they were carrying the burden of the whole world on their shoulders."

"True Detective" is "boring," and "The Newsroom" is praised

Tarantino's criticism goes straight to the "True Detective" leading actors from season two: Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch. The series fans should disappoint the tough judgment of the provocative Oscar winner. Does the maker of cult films like "Pulp Ficiton" and "Inglourious Basterds" even like anything on TV? "The last two shows I watched from cover to cover were" Justified "and" How I Met Your Mother, "" explains the pithy Texan. But only the series "The Newsroom" really knocked him off his feet: "That was the only show that I literally saw three times."

A hit: the new Tarantino western "The Hateful Eight"

Tarantino is currently working on the western "The Hateful Eight", which will be released in German cinemas on January 28, 2016: The film, with stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Kurt Russell in the lead roles, will be played for a number of years the American Civil War. It revolves around a total of eight characters, all of whom have a dark past. During a heavy snow storm, the dubious figures are stuck in a stagecoach station - and the typical Tarantino story takes its course.
