Kaboom Cereal from Kill Bill

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.”

No Mistaking A Tarantino Film

Variety has a pretty long (for them) article about Quentin Tarantino’s directing style. Its an interesting inside look at his methods and how the actors involved perceive them.

“The first thing he does is clear the entire set of all crew, and you just run the scene until you’ve got it down, and everyone feels their movement and behavior are natural in the space,” Roth says. “His movies are so detailed and beautifully composed, you feel like he has a graphic novel in his head. But it’s the opposite. All the camerawork is determined by the actors.”
