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?

Jamie Foxx’s latest video, “Blame It (On The Alcohol),” featuring T-Pain, premiered on BET’s 1-0-Shits & Snark recently, and I gotta say, it’s fuckin’ doozy. Featuring Hollywood heavyweights Samuel L. Jackson, Forest Whitaker, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Ron motherfucking Howard, and directed by Hype Williams, the clip is a throwback to when music videos were simple yet sexy and fun. Not even T-Pain’s coon antics could bring this one down. Although I have to wonder, is Nuvo really something a man is supposed to drink? I’m just sayin’.
Peep the video after the jump.
