Typical brands query[edit]

The article claims

The typical brands he uses within his films are "Acuña Boys Tex-Mex Food", "Big Kahuna Burger", "G.O. Juice", "Jack Rabbit Slim's", "K-Billy", "Red Apple cigarettes", "Tenku Brand Beer" and "Teriyaki Donut".[59]

Have all of these brands appeared in more than one of his films? Also the link doesn't actually go to a verification but just a general web site. NotYourFathersOldsmobile (talk) 11:29, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

Why include this quote?[edit]

When asked in 2013 by Britain's Channel 4 News reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, "Why are you so sure that there's no link between enjoying movie violence and enjoying real violence?", Tarantino responded by saying, "I have explained [my view on this] many times over the last 20 years, I just refuse to repeat myself over and over again."[65]

It seems like this tells us very little about his opinions, just that someone asked him the same question he had been previously asked. NotYourFathersOldsmobile (talk) 05:34, 23 December 2015 (UTC)

repertory company?[edit]

more like: how to blow up this article. by the way, the lovely Ms. Bell has collaborated only three times as an actress, bill and basterds was stunt work. hey, why not be creative, count the bill features as two films and blow up the article even more, make it six times actress…

His eighth film, The Hateful Eight ?[edit]

In the introduction you can read

His eighth film, the mystery Western The Hateful Eight

. Tarantino actually calls it its eighth movie, but is it a reason to objectively consider it as such ? If you consider Kill Bill as two distinct movies, Hateful Eight is the ninth.

Our coverage should boil down to what reliable third party sources determine to be his eighth film, not any attempt at objectivity. ‑‑YodinT 15:19, 24 July 2016 (UTC)

Biased ref #96[edit]

Hello, reference #96 (in Controversies: The Hateful Eight) currently links to an article on Breitbart, which is an ultra-biased and conservative news site. The article uses phrases like "with an obvious eye on appeasing the black press" and calls Tarantino's protest "cynical pandering" with "objectively appalling lies about the very same first responders we honored after 9/11"; if that isn't blatant conservative bias, I don't know what is. If an alternate unbiased source could be used that is nowhere near as alt-right as Breitbart, then that would be great.  Bulldog73  Bark  03:32, 1 October 2016 (UTC)
