Sam Jackson is always an interesting interview.
Another book recommendation for you. This one is a bit odd as I found it in the children’s section of Barnes & Noble while picking out a Skylanders book for my 5-year-old son. Its a whole series, and the covers were just so outrageously ridiculous (see what I mean) that I had to check them out. Turns out, its a pretty good story and I’m working on the 2nd book already. Wereworld Book 1: Rise of the Wolf.
Such breathless reporting.
How to turn Tarantino films into a Burlesque show.
CP: Since this is Tarantino, are we going to see a lot of feet?

To keep the site moving during the down periods in Tarantino’s productivity, I thought I’d start sharing other films and books that keep me entertained. This is the first of those posts:
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.
Tarantino’s girlfriend was accused of plagiarism. Never a good thing.

Get The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler from Amazon.
Much like Tarantino’s career – we are not dead yet. Though our previous server is, along with lots of data that wasn’t backed up properly.
Oh well, it was a nice unwanted vacation, but we are back in action now and hopefully can get things rolling again.
Meanwhile, the John Schlesinger Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing was presented to Quentin Tarantino — the first American ever to take an award that has recently been handed to the likes of Christopher Nolan, Danny Boyle and Anthony Minghella.
