Quentin Tarantino has shared his views on what he thinks is ‘one of the worst’ movies ever made - and let’s be honest, if anyone knows good movies, it’s this guy.
The legendary filmmaker has shared his thoughts on a flick he says is ‘the cinematic equivalent of a bird sh***ing on your head’ - so he’s not a fan, in case that wasn’t clear.
Writing in his book Cinema Spectacular, Tarantino hits out at two films by American director Robert Altman, who made The Long Goodbye in 1973 and Nashville in 1975 - you can see a trailer for the one he thinks is the worst here:
But two of his movies didn’t go down well with Tarantino, who wrote: “Brewster McCloud is one of the worst movies to ever carry a studio logo, and that’s fully acknowledging Altman also made Quintet for a studio as well.
“Quintet is just terrible, boring and pointless. But Brewster McCloud is the cinematic equivalent of a bird shitting on your head.” Ouch.
If you haven’t seen it, 1970s Brewster McCloud is a satirical black comedy about a recluse named Brewster McCloud, played by Bud Cort. McCloud is attempting to build himself a set of wings so he can fly away - but when he becomes a suspect in a string of murders, his fairy godmother, played by Sally Kellerman, comes to the rescue.
While Tarantino may not be a fan, the movie has a not-too shabby 6.9 on IMDB, while over on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes it has a pretty solid 86 percent.
Recently, Tarantino revealed the seven movies he believes to be perfect - and there’s some pretty unusual choices in the mix.
Appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tarantino said: "Well, there’s not many of them, that just bemoans that the film art form is hard.
"And look, when you say perfect movies you’re talking about any individual person's aesthetic but even trying to account for all aesthetics.
"Perfect movies kind of crosses all aesthetics to one degree or another. It might not be your cup of tea but there’s nothing you can say to bring it down."
Those on his list were 1974 classic slasher flick Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which he said was one of a select bunch of 'very few perfect movies', as well as Jaws, The Exorcist, Annie Hall, Young Frankenstein, The Wild Bunch and Back to the Future.
