It seems that these days, everyone has an opinion on everything – or more accurately: people have had opinions for a long time, but now the internet bombards us with everyone’s opinion on everything. There is a select group of people in the world of entertainment, however, that most would agree have actually earned the right to have their opinions carry the actual weight that most of us believe our ideas should. I think most would agree that Quentin Tarantino – the seminal writer/director behind such pop-culture mega-hits as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, Reservoir Dogs, Inglorious Basterds, and so much more – would fall into that category. He recently opened up about his feelings on the recent influx of superhero movies – read on to hear his thoughts!
Quentin Tarantino’s B-Day Surprise: ‘How it Should Have Ended’ Tries its Hand at ‘Pulp Fiction’ Ending
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?
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!”
[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.
Got a favorite movie quote? Ever thought of doing something with that quote? Well, Goran Patlejch (a.k.a. Goenetix) did and while they may be simple looking, they are all awesome in their own way. From Star Wars to Big Lebowski, to Matrix and Terminator, Patlejch used his art skills to showcase famous movie quotes. Check out after the jump to see more of Goenetix movie quote art and see if maybe your favorite quote is there. (more…)
Guess Who Monday is a weekly feature here at nerdbastards where we challenge you to guess the latest known or lesser known child star of nerd pop culture from the days of yore (70’s, 80’s, 90’s), who have all grown up. Lets take a gentleman’s bet and see if you can figure out today’s ‘Guess Who’. Warning: we are not responsible for any shocked, appalled or arousing feelings which may incur.
What do you say about a girl who was born after I had already lost my virginity? In 1995? You say that in 3 years she’s gonna be totally dropping that laundry. Having turned into a smoking hot teenager, she was a VERY important person in film, and potentially? Could be an even MORE important young woman down the road. (more…)
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.
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…)
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!!
