Director Quentin Tarantino (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”) was praised for the film “Top Gun: Maverick”. In an interview with the ReelBlend podcast, he stated that the film is “a true cinematic show.”
“I don’t usually talk much about new movies, because then I have to praise, otherwise I end up banging someone. But in this case, I loved ‘Top Gun: Maverick’. The movie is fantastic. I saw it in the cinema. This one. Spielberg’s movies and “Love, Sublime Amor” were real movie shows. The kind I thought I would never see again, “he praised.
Tarantino said he was concerned about the making of this film after the death of Tony Scott, the director of the 1986 original. He even talked about it with Tom Cruise and the star reassured him that they had found the right story to tell in the movie.
Eventually, Tarantino accepted the creative decisions of director Joseph Kosinski, hired to take care of the film. “He’s the closest we’ll ever see another Tony Scott movie,” he said.
The public seems to share Tarantino’s opinion. “Top Gun: Maverick” grossed over $ 1 billion at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing film of 2022.
For now, Quentin Tarantino hasn’t announced any new film projects. He is currently dedicated to the podcast “The Video Archives”, which he presents together with director Roger Avary (“Rules of Attraction”).
