Quentin Tarantino is Hollywood’s proudest geek, so it’s probably not surprising to learn that he has plenty of opinions to share about 2012’s most divisive sci-fi movie,
Speaking during an appearance on a US chat-show, Tarantino started off by praising certain elements of Scott’s film before turning to some of its glaring flaws.
“On one hand, it was actually kind of cool to see a big deal, serious science-fiction epic by a director like Ridley Scott,” began Tarantino. “Overall the experience was pretty cool having seen it.”
“But there was also a lot of dumb stuff in it," continued the director. "When it got to the point where they're on another planet and then a space cobra literally shows up, opens up its hood and the guy who's in charge of alien creatures goes, 'Hey, little fella! How ya doin?' I was like, ‘uhhhhh.... It's a space cobra!’”
A sentiment we can all share a degree of sympathy with. In the meantime, QT’s latest, Django Unchained , opens in the UK on 18 January 2012.
