    On his ‘The Video Archives Podcast‘, the 59 year old said that the current movie era is tied with the 1980s and 1950s as “the worst in Hollywood history.”

    Even though the ‘80s was the time that I probably saw more movies in my life than ever – at least as far as going out to the movies was concerned – I do feel that ‘80s cinema is, along with the ‘50s, the worst era in Hollywood history,” Tarantino said.

    He further added, “Matched only by now, matched only by the current era!” The director also noted that “the [films] that don’t conform” are “the ones that stand out from the pack” currently.

    Tarantino also named ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘ his best film ever made. “For years people used to ask me stuff like that,” he said. “And I would say something like, ‘Oh, they’re all my children.’ I really do think ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ is my best movie.”

    While promoting his new book Cinema Speculation, the ‘Django Unchained‘ director was asked his views on Marvel studios and its director. He said he will never make a Marvel film.

    You have to be a hired hand to do those things,” he said. “I’m not a hired hand. I’m not looking for a job.” In his book, Tarantino wrote that filmmakers today “can’t wait for the day” superhero genre fall out of favor.

    The director then said that he likes big-budget films but not the Marvel ones. “Of course, I liked ‘Star Wars.’ What’s not to like?”, he said. “But I remember — and this is not a ‘but’ in a negative way, but in a good way.
