  1. Also I'm calling it now, his next pic is gonna be OJ Simpson.
  2. That's what I'm saying though, how else would one respond to a question about a scene poking fun at their father/dead friend? Like that is a situation only designed to provoke a single response. If one of them were so offended by something that happened in the movie that they made an issue of it, then that would be worth a discussion. But these people sought them out specifically so they could use the "controversy" to either get a few more clicks, or to use it as a springboard to write about Bruce Lee. It would be like me tracking down one of GRRM's relatives to ask them about the wiener wiener song from South Park. Like, yeah, it's making fun of the dude, of course people close to him wouldn't like it. EDIT: If these sort of journalists are whores, Trey Parker is an intestinal parasite.
  3. From what I understand of his process I imagine the way he does things gets pretty exhausting after a while.
  4. These fucking whores (and I use that term gender-neutrally) tracking down Bruce Lee's daughter to try and wring a few clicks out of her reaction to that scene should probably be the kind of thing I'm numb to by now...but it still pisses me off. Bruce Lee is being satirized because he's remembered as one of the baddest motherfuckers to ever live. But then a Tarantino movie without a manufactured controversy wouldn't be a Tarantino movie, now would it. The scene with all the lights and signs from a pre-gentrified LA turning back on really made this one feel like a coda to the Inglorious Basterds, Django Unchained, Hateful 8 portion of Tarantino's career. The theme for these flicks has always been using Hollywood, the power of cinema to right and rewrite history. Hateful 8 was kind of about pulling the curtain back and revealing the lies for lies. But with this one it's like he's saying "Ok, yeah, but we can still take a step out of reality when we need to. Go back to a time when things were a little simpler, a little more innocent." Also loved that he literally "put 'em on the glass" with the feet thing.

    Saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood again. Really does feel like a penultimate chapter when considered with the whole of his output, so maybe he' serious with the ten and done thing after-all.

    A scifi movie with old school practical effects would be pretty cool.

    Doesn't seem like the kind of thing he'd go in for.

    I don't recall where, but I remember seeing that the Star Trek idea wouldn't be part of his ten film idea.

    Every time I watch his movies my ranking order changes, but having just gone through them all in a row, here's what I got: 1) Inglorious Basterds 2) Kill Bill 3) Django Unchained 4) The Hateful Eight 5) Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 6) Pulp Fiction 7) Death Proof 8) Reservoir Dogs 9) Jackie Brown 4-7 could really go in any order for me.

    Reservoir Dogs tells a story through dialogue, which is impressive in its own way, but also a little different than what Death Proof does, which is make the act of conversation itself take center stage. The most compelling parts of the movie are just groups f people sitting around a bar or a a coffee table, or a a car shooting the shit. When the "stunt man" shows up with all the senseless violence, it feels like it's interrupting the important parts of the film. Somewhat of a converse to the blockbuster action stuff where the dialogue feels like it's just meant to take you from one action spectacle to the next.

    When people talk about what makes Tarantino great one of the first words out of anyone's mouth is inevitably "dialogue," and Death Proof has the best dialogue out of all his pre-Inglorious Basterds stuff. Maybe the best dialogue period.

    Personally I think Death Proof is better than Jackie Brown and maybe Pulp Fiction too, but YMMV.
  15. I gave so little of a shit about season 6 I was stoned through 90% of it and remember nothing. Might want to watch the recap, but it hasn't affected my enjoyment. Honestly, as much as I feel like the past few seasons dipped in quality, I am sad to see this show end. I don't think people are gauging yet just how much this series has done to humanize prisoners and wake people up to how fucked up our criminal justice system is in a way that's accessible. This might wind up being this generation of television's All in the Family.
