Something we can all agree on!

I have always been a big fan of Quentin Tarantino, which I would guess does not make me very unique as he truly is one of the best script writers and directors of our time.

His films are accessible and you can at the same time seem arty by liking him and read in greater meanings to his work, if you are in to that sort of thing.

if asked; I usually say that my favourite movie is Natural Born Killer (I know it's Oliver Stone who is the director before you make a comment):
it's a hell of a ride of a movie, but it also saves me actually thinking about all the different great movies out there and try to grade them all according to a list.

movies are not supposed to be listed, but just be taken in as they are, an expression of art, or in some cases lack there of.

The following short, is one of the best things I've seen in a long time, great dialogue, clever, funny and great editing etc.... maybe better than anything Tarantino has ever done, but without any of his work this short would never be; Anyway I sound like a cinematic wanker, which I am not, so I should just stop right here.

The following 15 minutes will not change your life or give you insight of any laws, corporate corruption or EU power hijackings. it will simply give you a 15 minute cinematic experience that I think you will appreciate highly....


  1. If you like Tarantino, i strongly recommend watching Stanley Kubricks "The Killing" (1956) which is an incredible movie and was a massive influence on Quentins trademark approach to narrative.

  2. You can say that again, daryl. 'The killing' is awesome and for certain inspired tarantino's narrative
