Quentin Tarantino’s B-Day Surprise: ‘How it Should Have Ended’ Tries its Hand at ‘Pulp Fiction’ Ending

- 03-29-12Funny Videos Posted by Veronique Medrano

In commemoration of Quentin Tarantino’s 49th birthday yesterday, we bring to you a special “How it Should’ve Ended” of cult classic film Pulp Fiction. We get endings to the different stories in the film such as: Vincent Vega & Marsellus Wallace’s Wife, The Gold Watch, The Bonnie Situation, and Pumpkin & Honey Bunny. The changes in endings for all these stories do affect the overall storyline which includes the last story of ‘Pumkpin & Honey Bunny’.  I do agree with ‘HISHE’ in the respect that it would have been an added benefit to have this film’s differentiated endings is a bit longer.

Now with Pulp Fiction out of the way, the crew of “How it should’ve ended” should take a chance with Kill Bill Vol 1&2. What other Quentin Tarantino film would you have changed the ending and how?

 

And ‘Elementary’s’ Watson Will Be… Lucy Liu?!?!

- 02-28-12TV Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

As predicted, CBS has gone with a, shall we say, unconventional choice to play Watson to Johnny Lee Miller‘s Sherlock in the network’s modern-day Americanized update of Holmes in Elementary.

It’s been confirmed that Lucy Liu (Kill Bill, Charlie’s Angels) will take up the part of Dr. Joan Watson, the former surgeon and right-hand woman of expert detective Sherlock Holmes,  “a recovering addict and consultant for the NYPD,” according to TV Guide.

So what are we to make of this PC police move? Sure, Liu is a talented actress and all, but is this  is the kind of maneuver that people who hate American remakes of foreign TV shows hate. So is there a practical reason why Watson is now an Asian-American woman, or is it just cynical political correctness afoot?

I guess we’ll see for certain when and if Elementary airs in the fall on CBS.

Think you can take a punch? Maybe you can, but then maybe you just think you can. The characters on today’s list have a proven track record of taking a beating and rising up to get beat on again and again. There will be blood, oh yes there will be blood. So read this list you little girly men and women, because you can’t take the punishment these characters take. Not and keep that wonderfully cheery Nerd Bastard disposition, but don’t worry, as the Black Knight is often quoted, “It’s only a flesh wound!”

Guess Who Monday: Her Mother Knows The “Five Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique”

[Editors Note: ‘Guess Who Monday’ is a weekly feature here at nerdbastards, where we challenge you to take a look at the latest, grown up, former child star and see if you can guess who they use to be. ]

There are a bunch of you pervy pedo fucks out there that look at young actress’s and try to innocently say “How old is she again? She looks older”, “Oh, I’m just saying she’s a pretty girl”, “Yeah…I mean, when she’s OLDER, she’ll be hot”.

Yeah right. You are disgusting, and you’re not fooling anyone. I don’t care if the age of consent laws throughout most of the world are 12-16, with USA being one of the only exceptions. You are one sick son of a bitch!

With that said, today’s ‘Guess Who’ actress was indeed a cute kid in her 2004 break-out role and she certainly is growing up fast.

Who is this adorable little lass? Well, I’ll give you a hint. Her fictional mother once took out 88 men (Well, there wasn’t really 88 of them.) and her daddy was not sadistic, but masochistic.

If you haven’t got it figured out then you really need to watch more movies. HIT THE JUMP for the reveal.

It’s impossible to become a badass babe. If your a femme fatal, you come out of the womb with a gun in one hand and sword in the other. You naturally exude a combination of toughness, self-reliance, vulnerability, and sexiness. A badass babe doesn’t follow any rules. They will maim and blow up everything that gets and in their way and do it while wearing the least amount of clothing as possible.

Movies and television are chock full of these badasses and here are the top 10 bitches you don’t want to fuck with.

Top Ten Movie Villains Who Never Get Recognition

- 03-21-10Featured, Film Posted by Zach Lawrence

gooniesnewspaper

It seems that every year in some magazine or on some show, we get the typical list of baddies from the 60’s, 70’s and so on. Usually they mention the cool regulars like Vader, the Emperor, or one of the guys who tries to off  James Bond. And that’s cool, those lists never get old. The nuances varying only slightly, as the leaves change colors and the snow begins to fall, then we realize another year has been stolen from our lives. So what if some of the lame, not so cool, or dare I say, shitty bad guys got their moment, however brief or insignificant? It might look something like this.

Top 10 Most Badass Swords in Cinema

- 12-10-09Cool Stuff, Film Posted by Zach Lawrence

Some of our favorite movies of marquee value over the last century have been extremely well acted, beautifully crafted and earned tons and tons of Oscar noms and wins. But we are forgetting a very crucial part of these films. Not the DP. Not the Grips. Not the Director or the small people involved behind the scenes that you never hear about, but something SO VERY CRUCIAL, the film cannot succeed without it.

What could it be, you must be asking yourself after the buildup I’ve created here. Here it is….The Sword. Yes, in any action film, fantasy or period piece, a good sword by the main character’s side is as important as a good actor…seriously. Here is a Top 10 List of The Most Badass Swords…If you got any of your own, throw them into the pot. (more…)

Top 5 Movies I Want A Sequel Or Prequel To

- 09-02-09Film Posted by Zach Lawrence

So in no particular order, I was thinking to myself (which I do quite often) and fantasizing about a bunch of flicks I want to see prequels to. Or sequels or new versions of them in any denomination. Here it is, Wicky wicky.

Predator- This one ugly motherfucker never got his due past 2 films! AVP does NOT COUNT! Aliens got 4 movies of their own plus the two AVP’s which were as bad as either of the Fantastic 4 films… Arnold? Worthy adversary. Danny Glover?….O…K. Maybe Pred3 we’ll get a new action star of the proper caliber these virtuous warriors deserve.

300- Now, I’ve heard that we may get a prequel or something, ANYTHING! 300 continues to be one of the most innovative and original films to date, not to mention beautifully shot. I’d love to see the development of Leonidas and his men during skirmishes and tribal fights. That would be a good day.

Kill Bill- One and two simply weren’t enough for the bride to exact her revenge, it may be a tad more difficult since David Carradine…..died. Bill is dead so this can’t be done, but I’d love to see it. Maybe the sociopathic Uma working her way up the rungs of professional killing…It could’ve been done…Kung Fu?  Would have never asphyxiated himself in a woman’s dress and panties…but you went out with style sir, and I think it was bad ass.

Sin City- I hear this one is coming too, but when? A prequel or a sequel, either way, I’m there! Also, Alba HAS to drop her laundry this time. She’s ready, I’m ready, the American people are ready. I want more Marv, more Bruce Willis, even a little more development on Josh Hartnett!

Incredible Hulk- We have word of Wolverine and Iron Man already. Ed Norton put some much needed gravitas into Bruce Banner and those scenes where his eyes would go green? Goosebumps. Plus Liv Tylor was beautifully poignant and the romance was sad yet remarkably funny and soft. The movie made decent bank and was well reviewed. I think with all Marvel’s projects lined up, Disney should not put this onto the back burner….

Anybody waiting for something too? Hit me with it!!
