Part of the life story that he’s told for years – that he went to jail for unpaid traffic tickets, appears to be false.
Tarantino’s lone brush with the law, according to the LA County Sheriff’s Department, is a 2000 charge for driving without a license and failure to appear in court. He paid a fine to avoid jail.
“A check of court records revealed that in August of 2000, he paid a fine of $871, which included court costs, for violation of driving without a license,” Reed said.
The payment was “in lieu of an eight-day sentence imposed by the court,” the captain added.
Tarantino is getting political. Oh joy.
The city’s police union is calling for a boycott of Quentin Tarantino films after the “Pulp Fiction’’ director took part in an anti-cop rally less than a week after an officer was killed on the job.
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.
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.
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 sits down to discuss the the new book, “The Collaboration: Hollywood’s Pact with Hitler”. The book…
…suggests Hollywood studio heads went to great pains to preserve their business with World War II-era Germany – at the expense of their artistic and perhaps even moral integrity.
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.
