Filmmaker has a knack for colorful commentary

Over the years, Quentin Tarantino has had a knack for offering colorful commentary on just about anything. Here are a few quintessential Quentin quotes.

“I steal from every movie ever made.”
Empire Magazine

“I’m not going to be this old guy that keeps cranking them out. My plan is to have a theater by that time in some small town, and I will be the manager — this crazy old movie guy.”
Entertainment Weekly

“Sure, ‘Kill Bill’ is a violent movie. But it’s a Tarantino movie. You don’t go to see Metallica and ask the fuckers to turn the music down.”
Uncut Magazine

“I’ve always thought my soundtracks do pretty good, because they’re basically professional equivalents of a mix tape I’d make for you at home.”
BBC

“I write movies about mavericks, about people who break rules, and I don’t like movies about people who are pulverized for being mavericks.”
