Quentin Tarantino Swears By VHS… Even Now

tarantinoWe all remember that sweet sound of the internal motor rewinding the VHS tape back in the day, when it was time to check out a new movie from the rental store.  Although most have moved onto Blu-Ray and even beyond Blu-Ray to streaming, one man who is staying put is Quentin Tarantino.  This is what he has to say:

“I am not excited about streaming at all. I like something hard and tangible in my hand. And I can’t watch a movie on a laptop. I don’t use Netflix at all. I don’t have any sort of delivery system. I have the videos from Video Archives. They went out of business, and I bought their inventory. Probably close to eight thousand tapes and DVDs… I have a bunch of DVDs and a bunch of videos, and I still tape movies off of television on video so I can keep my collection going.”

Again, not a huge surprise here, and David O. Russell, it appears, is not a huge Netflix fan either:

“There’s a lot of stuff going on with the licensing and the deals where they no longer have certain movies. It used to be that Amazon had everything, but Amazon changed their deal. And I’ll say it to the guy I know who owns Netflix: it’s a bunch of dreck.”
