11 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino On Joe Rogan Experience
Harvey Weinstein, Bruce Lee backlash, and what Kill Bill Vol. 3 would look like!
The Joe Rogan Experience has long been the go-to podcast for many a listener and many a celebrity, with Rogan's unique brand of hosting forever proving to be an engaging, entertaining watch/listen as him and his guests bounce off each other.
Rogan's podcast has become a pivotal destination for so many A-listers in recent years, whether that's Elon Musk, Robert Downey Jr., Lance Armstrong, Kanye West, Edward Snowden, Chuck Palahniuk, Kevin Smith, Mike Tyson or the Undertaker.
The point being, Joe is famed for covering such a wide array of industries and mediums with his guests. And now, the latest person to sit down and chew the fat with Rogan is iconic filmmaker Quentin Tarantino.
Much like the vast majority of JRE episodes, Tarantino's chat with Joe Rogan is one that's can't-miss and covers a stupid amount of different topics by the time the offering's 173-minute run time comes to a close. But if you've not had the chance to check out this new episode just yet - or if you simply want a taste of what to expect - we've totally got you covered here.
From having taken in this new episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, then, here are 11 significant talking points.
11. QT Would Love To Work With Chevy Chase
During a talk about the movie business in the 1980s, Tarantino talks to Rogan about how it was a decade where so much of cinema was sanitised and had to have a happy ending.
As an example, QT talked up how much kinder critics were to the '80s films of Bill Murray in comparison to those of Chevy Chase.
In many a Murray movie of that time, his character would be a total d*ck for an hour, then see the error of his ways and become a better person during the final act. On the other hand, Chase's d*ckish characters usually remained a d*ck throughout the entire picture - with Tarantino proclaiming how Chevy "don't play that sh*t".
During this discussion, Quentin enthused about how he'd "love to" work with Chevy Chase at some point, going on to namedrop Chase's work in Fletch, Foul Play and on Saturday Night Live.
The larger point being made at this part of this JRE chat, was how the 1950s and '80s were the worst decades for film due to how few boundaries were being pushed.
