I suppose being a super-rich type of guy he can afford to spend years scouring the earth for these things. Sure beats making movies, huh, Quentin? Yes, that is the sound of the pathetic whining of someone who would love to be there.

Why is there so lil talk back here. This a great forum for fanboys to see the roots of our geekdom. Why do we have to flock to the star wars and star trek sights? Lets quit bickering over another prequel. Why not start fresh and enjoy the next Star Trek and the next Star Wars? And in turn revel in the past. Fuck the details and let yourself get sucked back in to the magic that was there when we saw it and can still be there while we see it again and still there when we see other different takes on what we have already seen. Go for the story; and if it is weak let all Fanboys kill it, but if it is strong; silence all fanboys who oppose it.

I read a lot of talkback but never really contribute, usually because it's bickering and I'm not interested in too many of the current crop of long awaited films. I just don't see wasting energy when there is a plethora of little known films or films I've always wanted to see. My tastes are so broad that within the last couple of years I've begun compiling lists of films to see. I just can't remember them all. Best thing I ever did. Now I write down everything that interests me and why. I'm never w/out a newly discovered classic in my dvd or vcr. And I seek out films in theatres that I would usually pass on out of ignorance. I LOVE hearing Harry's reports from the festival front and I hope it encourages more talkback and discussions of classic cinema good and bad. The more you know the history of what you love the better...

Everyone should go buy the new Faber and Faber book Cassavetes on Cassavetes edited by Ray Carney. It's amazing. Jared Irmas P.S. John Cassavete's gangster film, Killing of a Chinese Bookie, with Ben Gazzarra, is one of the greatest films of all time. If you haven't seen it rent it. It beats Woman Under the Influence by a hair.

I can't believe the guy has the huevos to show that movie. It's about two poker-faced hepcat hit men, one black and one white, who walk around together in synch...ridiculous. When you watch this movie, the Pulp Fiction-ness of it makes you laugh out loud. I guess this is QT's way of spilling his guts.

Q shows all these films with great titles like Shoot First, Die Later and The Great Texas Dynamite Chase. Kill Bill is supposed to be the exploitation flick to end all exploitation flix...shouldn't it have a better title? Not that Kill Bill isn't kinda cool, but it should be called something like Bride of Blood, or Raw Vengeance!, or To Kill Violence With Deadly Blades of Blood, or something like that. Quentin, I know you're reading this--think about it!
