Glorious Tarantino


Ophelia, how was your first week back?  I'm glad you are back in the game despite your hesitations and slight disappointment, I truly believe that you are taking 2 steps forward and NO steps back.   Mark my words, beautiful lady, you will be heading a magazine of your own one day!  Until then... chin up... and impress anything any anyone that crosses your path, because it is all about your rolodex.

While you two girls plan your rendezvous in Paris, this eternal intern is soaking in all the excitement of Oscars week.  Every morning I pass by the busy intersection of Hollywood and Highland where the academy awards will be held in just a few days.

With the Oscar weekend approaching, I find myself rooting for a person that should not be an underdog... but somehow has become exactly that!  Inglourious Basterds is nominated for 8 awards and is up against the critics' favorites Hurt Locker and Avatar with 9 nominations each.  If you ask me (which you didn't but I will share with you my answer regardless) Quentin should receive Best Screenplay, Christoph should receive Best Supporting and the movie itself should be Best Picture!  Avatar should sweep the tech awards and lastly Bigelow should be recognized for Hurt Locker.

Personally, I have been a fan of Quentin since the day I was born...

Reservoir Dogs... LOVE IT!
Pulp Fiction... LOVE IT!
Four Rooms... LOVE IT!
From Dusk Till Dawn... LOVE IT!
Jackie Brown... LOVE IT!
Kill Bill... LOVE IT!
Kill Bill II... LOVE IT!
Deathproof... LOVE IT!
Grindhouse... LOVE IT!
Inglourious Basterds... LOVE IT!... LOVE IT!... LOVE IT!

  1. I have the Inglorious Basterds DVD sitting on top of the player ever since it was bought like a month ago and I have still yet to see it! I'm definitely putting that under my to do list now!

  2. I hated Inglorious Basterds. Yes it was fun and occasionally funny, and there were parts that I enjoyed (like the tense bar-room scene), but I left the theatre with a bad taste in my mouth. Overall I found it sort of distasteful, and there were parts I was just downright bored.
    I think 'Hurt Locker' deserves to win both best picture and best director; it was a phenomenal film and I thought I was going to have a heart attack before it was over.
    Avatar, while beautiful, had a stale, unimaginative plot. It deserves to win for special effects etc, but any other awards would be ridiculous. Cameron can go console himself with his billions of dollars.

  3. Don't you LOVE LOVE LOVE Pulp Fiction too?? I definitely do. And LOVE SQUARED at least for Resevoir Dogs. Nobody appreciates music in film like QT does. Watch at QT movie and those songs will forever be associated with the accompanying scene. The opening scene of Bastards is enough to LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!
