because Thomas Edison loved a good ass-kicking

Quentin Tarantino believes violence is what makes movies good. Not just his movies: all movies, according to the London Evening Standard:

In general cinema, that’s the biggest attraction. I’m a big fan of action and violence in cinema… That’s why Thomas Edison created the motion picture camera — because violence is so good. It affects audiences in a big way. You know you’re watching a movie.

Or perhaps because Tarantino got a sneak peak at the director’s cut of Bright Star — which restores the awesome gory duel between poets John Keats and Charles Armitage Brown the studio forced Jane Campion to cut — and really does simply believe the film is stronger and more effective with that shot of Keats’ intestines spilling out onto Hampstead Heath.

This has been your WTF Thought for the Day.
