Everyone knows that Quentin Tarantino certainly doesn't like to hold back when it comes to banging on about himself and his art, so here are some prize quotes for you straight from the horses mouth (or more accurately, via Metro). Some are hilarious, some are pretty shocking, but all of them are completely priceless, so consider this a disclaimer for any potential offence taken.

Quentin Tarantino

On collecting movies:

If you're a film fan, collecting video is sort of like marijuana. Laser discs, they're definitely cocaine. Film prints are heroin, all right? You're shooting smack when you start collecting film prints. So, I kinda got into it in a big way, and I've got a pretty nice collection I'm real proud of.

On spending 10 days in an LA jail for nonpayment of $7000 worth of parking tickets:

I was kind of excited about going to jail the first time and I learnt some great dialogue.

On film violence:

Violence is one of the most fun things to watch.

On special effects in movies:

This CGI bullshit is the death knell of cinema. If I’d wanted all that computer game bullshit, I’d have stuck my d*** in a Nintendo.

On his future as a film-maker:

I hope to give you at least 15 more years of movies. 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.

On Guy Ritchie marrying Madonna:

I guess I’ll have to marry Elvis Presley to get even.

On films:

Movies are my religion and God is my patron. I’m lucky enough to be in the position where I don’t make movies to pay for my pool. When I make a movie, I want it to be everything to me; like I would die for it.

On where he gets his inspiration from:

I steal from every movie ever made.

On Kill Bill:

Sure, Kill Bill’s a violent movie. But it’s a Tarantino movie. You don’t go to see Metallica and ask the f*****s to turn the music down.

On dogs:

Dogs got personality. Personality goes a long way.

On whether film violence influences children:

What if a kid goes to school after seeing Kill Bill and starts slicing up other kids? You know, I’ll take that chance! Violent films don’t turn children into violent people. They may turn them into violent filmmakers but that’s another matter altogether.
