Despicable Me 2 Is The Only Film Quentin Tarantino's Son Has Ever Watched

Despicable Me 2 Is The Only Film Quentin Tarantino's Son Has Ever Watched

Quentin Tarantino's son is getting a lesson in true cinematic genius with Despicable Me 2.

Quentin Tarantino has revealed the only film his two-year-old son has ever watched is Despicable Me 2.

The legendary director recently welcomed his second child, a daughter, with wife Daniella Pick so the couple's first son, Leo, will have to get used to a sibling.

Born in February 2020, Leo will no longer be the only apple of his parent's eyes but he's getting to spend some quality time watching movies with his dad.

It must be quite a treat to watch films with an icon of cinema, though maybe Leo will have some growing up to do before he gets old enough to watch anything his dad made.

All of the gory violence, swearing and adult themes are a little bit beyond being suitable for a two-year-old.

Questions like 'what's the word that man keeps shouting?' and 'why does that lady keep showing her feet' are probably best left alone for a few years.

Per Variety, Tarantino explained how his son got his first taste of cinema with Despicable Me 2 after the famous director decided to entertain Leo with a minions cartoon.

He said: "I thought I was hitting a Minions cartoon, and I realize it’s Despicable Me 2. And he seemed to be interested in the opening credits, so I go, 'Okay, I guess we’re watching Despicable Me 2.'

"[Leo] gets up and he walks behind the couch, but he’s still watching the TV. We watched it for 20 minutes, until it was time for him to go to the park, and then the next day we watched another 15 minutes of it."

"And so, in the course of a week, in small bites, the first movie Leo ever watched was Despicable Me 2."

Whether Leo liked it or not, it seems as though his preferred TV shows got more of a thumbs up from his father, who explained they also watch Peppa Pig together.

Tarantino was flush with praise for the kid's cartoon, calling it 'the greatest British import of this decade', which is quite the seal of approval.

Luckily, at just two-years-old, Leo is probably too young to participate in the 'Gentleminions' trend and get thrown out of a cinema for turning up in a suit.

Meanwhile, his father suggested that, contrary to his previous plans, he might decided to stick around directing movies for longer than expected.

Quentin Tarantino had said he planned to make 10 movies in his career, counting Kill Bill as one complete film, which would mean he's only got one more left in him.

Now he's suggested he might have plans to make a third Kill Bill movie, but first he wants to take a break from his usual style and direct a comedy.
