I am a huge Quentin Tarantino fan (even if my opinion that his best films are Jackie Brown and Death Proof are in the minority) but it is with great trepidation I await his upcoming Django Unchained.
The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Leonardo DiCaprio, and tells the story of Django, a freed slave who treks across America with a German dentist-turned-bounty hunter to rescue Django’s wife Broomhilda from a charming but sadistic plantation owner.
Yes, it’s Kill Bill set during those awful days of American slavery.

This is totally random, but whatever. This is what the kids refer to as GPOY … I think.
I’m up, reading, writing, blogging, et cetera, but I need some ambient background noise or else I cannot concentrate. Some days, music will do; others, I need movie dialogue in the bee-gee.
Well, this morning I’m popping Jackie Brown into the PS3. If you didn’t know already (and really you should know this by now), Jackie Brown is my favorite Quentin Tarantino film. It’s simply brilliant and criminally underrated. And if I’m not mistaken, it’s the only one of his films not available on Blu-Ray.
Harvey, what the fuck are you doing, man?

That’s pretty much all I can say after reading Quentin Tarantino’s latest screenplay Inglorious Bastards. Grammatical and spelling errors aside, this is hands down one of the best scripts I’ve had the pleasure of reading this year.
I’m a fan of Tarantino’s work, but I am by no means what you would call a “fanboy.” I find some of his work – namely Reservoir Dogs and the Kill Bill saga – to be quite flawed. Then again, I am different from your typical QT fan in that I simply love Jackie Brown and Death Proof above all his other works.
But Inglorious Bastards is genius, and it’s genius not because of snappy dialogue or pop culture references or foot massages or whatever else you want to ascribe Tarantino’s success to. Inglorious is genius because it tells a damn good story. While I won’t reveal any spoilers, I will discuss characters and plot points, so if you don’t want to know more, then don’t read after the jump. Continue reading
