ReelBlend #77: Our Quentin Tarantino Interview

Leonardo DiCaprio in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Powered by RedCircle

We don’t get to say this too often. This week, Quentin Tarantino joins us as a guest on the ReelBlend podcast.

No, we still can’t believe it, either.

Jake, Kevin, Sean and Gabe had the opportunity to sit down with legendary, iconic director Quentin Tarantino in Los Angeles to discuss his new film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. In the process, the guys also dove into specific aspects of his career, spanning a wide range of topics.

We discussed the Pulp Fiction prequel he planned (and get into why he never did it). We break down his feelings about doing a Star Trek movie, and whether or not he’d be comfortable making that his last film. We discuss he filming of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, in depth!

And, of course, we bring the infamous Kill Bill debate right to the man himself.

Needless to say, if you like Tarantino, or this podcast, this is the episode you have been waiting for. So give it a listen!

Quentin Tarantino being on the podcast, alone, would make this episode a must listen. But the guys also go through their normal segments. They read a few new reviews. (Send us a review at!) They discuss the trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. (How do you think Jake feels about it?) They chat Lion King box office. And they play George Clooney Blend, with some very personal answers.

This is a special one.
