That’s not how Hollywood works. Hollywood works by listing whoever the biggest stars are higher in the credits and casting big name actors to get people in the seats, even if there’s a better and cheaper option out there. That’s why so many animated movies have big name stars as the leads and why opening credits often…
“WHY DOESN’T MARGOT ROBBIE GET MROE LINES?”
The link between the Uma Thurman on-set accident and any other sexist controversies surrounding Tarantino really seems like a stretch to me apart from the fact that Uma is a woman. Nothing about what happened was gendered in any way—a director abused his power to coerce a star into performing a risky stunt, then tried…
I slowly lose my ability to be an ally with the current political righteousness when the movement crushes the sole out of everything that comes along, asking why the women/minority/not white guy didn’t get a bigger part or chastising them when they are the wrong color or didn’t have an obvious handicap.
It is not a public matter before he’s called out publicly. And yes, you’re allowed to bring it up again, the question is, what the fuck do you intend to achieve with it?
The man has a vision and he wants to put it on screen. So sorry reporter lady if it doesn’t fit with your activism. I mean it’s not like QT began writing the screenplay and asked himself, how can I give Margot Robbie a smaller role? Haha! That’ll show women!
QT just wants to tell a story. There’s no sinister agenda…
What’s with these headlines? “snippy”? another one said “lashed out”
QT just said he didn’t agree with her statement. That’s it.
it remains an open question whether Tarantino will be able to answer these sorts of critiques without coming off like a pissed-off middle school science teacher in the process.
QT’s movies are filled with strong female characters. There are a lot of filmmakers you could side-eye in terms of female representation; it’s a reach to knock Tarantino on this front.
Margot Robbie, cast for her physical appearance rather than acting talent?
Everytime Margot isn’t on screen, Leo or Brad should ask, “Where’s Margot????”
The main protagonist in Inglorious Basterds is a woman. Jackie Brown, his best movie imo, revived Pam Grier’s career. Am really not sure what they’re getting at here.
‘I reject your hypothesis’ is actually a good answer. There was nothing Tarantino could say that would satisfy the questioner, William Hughes, or anyone in the Hot Take #outrage Squad. Noting that he rejected the premise of the question and leaving it there was the best way to signal a disagreement that would not…
Pulp Fiction is teeming with terrific female parts too. And for all the pearl-clutching over the constant battering of Daisy in “The Hateful Eight”, it was still a meaty enough role to garner JJL critical acclaim and an Oscar nomination, which is more than what she’s been given throughout a bulk of her career (sadly)
It’s like asking Bob Ross, “Why couldn’t the bush be happier?”
Obviously I have not seen this movie nor have many people here I would imagine. The thought that the number of lines should for some reason be proportionate to an actor’s status or star power is silly. There have been very many high profile actors that have had few lines in movies of any gender. Is the thought here…
Doesn’t look like anyone’s biting, Hughes.
Kill Bill franchise is brimming with heroines and villainesses. I don’t get this.
I remember laughing so hard I was sobbing in public the first time I read about Major Major Major Major, and then trying to explain to my then boyfriend and not even being able to get the words out.
