Such breathless reporting.
Remember the box of Kaboom cereal that Vernita Green used to hide a gun in Kill Bill?
Well, Ace has put together a post with everything you could ever want to know about Kaboom cereal. My favorite tidbit:
Kaboom was for people — children, I mean — who had decided to give up on life. And it’s a sad thing for a six year old to have already thrown in the towel and said, “Ah well. The hopes and dreams of kindergarten are ultimately exposed as so much folly. Give me the Kaboom, Ma. I’m ready to settle.”
How to turn Tarantino films into a Burlesque show.
CP: Since this is Tarantino, are we going to see a lot of feet?
MR: I’ve been trying to think of how to work that in with my Kill Bill act — if I’m doing the Bride and I’m going to fight with swords, I think I should be barefoot because it’s safer.
Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono is upset that people keep asking about the Tarantino influence in his new film because of the yellow track suit (Kill Bill style). He’s ticked because it was a Bruce Lee thing, not a Tarantino thing.
His film is called Why Don’t You Play In Hell?

Bloody and brutal with kids as the main characters in a post apocalyptic world, School’s Out Forever makes the dystopia of the Hunger Games seem like a walk in the park.
Sad news today that Elmore Leonard has died.
Back in February of 2012, there were rumors that a prequel to Jackie Brown – sans QT involvement – was going to be made based on the Leonard novel The Switch (it apparently never happened). CORRECTION – the prequel is happening and its called Life of Crime.
Leonard is currently most famous because of the Justified TV series – which was based on his novels as well.
