Maverick director Quentin Tarantino dislikes the recent films of MARTIN SCORSESE - because they've lost their edge and have become "kind of geriatric".

Tarantino is less than impressed with the Gangs of New York filmmaker's current work, and believes he's no longer the creative force he was when directing classics like Raging Bull and Goodfellas.

But the outspoken Kill Bill: VOL 2 director defends Scorsese's right as an artist to make what he wants.

He says, "If I say Martin Scorsese's movies are getting kind of geriatric, he can say, 'F*** you, man!'

"I'm doing what I want to do, I'm following my muse.' And he's 100 per cent right.

"I'm in my church, praying to my god and he's in his church, praying to his. There was a time when we were in the same church - I miss that. I don't want to do that church."
