  1. What was the name of the book you referenced about the intergalactic observers? Have not seen Django yet but after rewatching my Tarantino collection and listening to this. I am going tonight.

  2. The comment in the podcast about not being far removed from the Roman Empire reminds me of an observation someone made about the nature of film. Action movies are probably our culture’s substitute for public executions. The first two acts are spent making the case that the villain deserves to die. Then the film concludes with the hero executing the SOB.

  3. Personally i don’t think i can watch tarantino films anymore. I used to like them but once Inglorious Baterds came out i can’t help but feel bogged down from his writing style and the way he has you watch his characters monologue for twenty minutes. It’s kinda like how i feel towards Tim Burton, it’s just kinda the same thing over and over with basically the same actors. However, i would be interested to see if his kung fu film turns out any different stylistically because kung fu movies are awesome and the rza is working on it.

  4. I really need to go see this movie. I thought Christopher Waltz stole the show in Inglorious Basterds by a long way, and I’m sure he’s just as fantastic in this. I usually love Tarantino movies, but I never liked Reservoir Dogs, it’s probably the worst popular movie I’ve ever seen, so I don’t get the love for it. Never really liked anything about it, always thought it was nothing more than arguing about what color they wanted to be and some dude gets his ear cut off, but I’m positive I’ll like this one simply because of Waltz.

  5. Regarding Jule’s pistol, “Mr Nine-Millimeter”, that Samuel L. Jackson uses is a 9mm Star Model B and not a .45 automatic and, therefore, not a mistake.

    So, the airsoft pistol that Adam has is closer to Vincent’s, a Auto-Ordnance M1911-A1.

    FYI, NERD ALERT!!!

  6. So, I watched the movie over the weekend and during the dog scene I asked myself “Am I a bad person for watching this?”, then I too a surreptitious look around the theater and saw some people with their eyes closed tightly, and thought “I’d probably be a worse person if I ignored that it was happening in front of me, and that this kind of thing did happen”.

    That’s what I put my mind to. The last dog scene, during flashbacks, was most difficult, IMO.

    Also, *love* the new editor!

    Actually, what I found really interesting was how the dog scene was actually necessary to the plot, and the characters on screen had as much of a visceral reaction to it as the audience. There tends to be some elements of violence in Tarentino movies that isn’t entirely justified by the story, but how the dog scene caused such an outright visceral snap in the characters that led to the third act of the movie seemed, to me anyways, to show quite a bit of growth in Tarentino’s style. If that scene hadn’t happened, and hadn’t been such a sickening experience, then the impact on the characters would have been less understandable to the audience.
