Pulp Fiction made a lot of actors famous, brought the careers of some back from the dead and solidified the entire cast in pop culture legacy. But one person whose Pulp Fiction appearance never brought him fame and fortune, and who avoided the spotlight at all was Stephen Hibbert, a writer and actor who played the Gimp.
Yes, walruses. Human Centipede. Horror movie, with Quentin Tarantino. It’s called ‘Tusk’. And I don’t even know.
It was kind of surprising to learn that there were Django Unchained action figures made, and it’s now disappointing they’re being discontinued after receiving multiple nasty complaints. Django Unchained is a brutal movie about a brutal period in American history, and I suppose people felt the toys downplayed the seriousness of the crimes of the era.
Welcome to the latest light-hearted romp from the wonderful mind of Quentin Tarantino, the man who brought you such family favorites as Reservoir Dogs and Inglourious Basterds. Coming up against Les Miz in the battle for holiday premier supremacy is Django Unchained starring Jamie Foxx as the titular anti-hero who seeks to rescue from the vile pits of the slave trade his treasured beloved with help from Christoph Waltz (Dr. King Shultz). Surrounded by much hype and burdened by expectations from QT loyalists like myself can this journey of violent retribution rise to the challenge?
It’s not surprising that someone would ask Spielberg if he’d be interested in directing the next Star Wars movie, but Tarantino? I’d love it, but hardcore Star Wars fans probably wouldn’t. And now it’s official that neither Spielberg nor Tarantino are interested, so you can cross those two names off the list. What about Kevin Smith?
It seems that in every Tarantino movie, someone has their signature weapon. Whether it’s Butch’s pawn shop samurai sword in Pulp Fiction, The Bride’s Hattori Hanzo sword in Kill Bill, a 1971 Chevy Nova in Death Proof or the Bear Jew’s baseball bat in Inglourious Basterds, there’s always that one weapon. And in Django Unchained, we’ve got Leonardo DiCaprio with a hammer. Oh, I bet that hammer’s gonna meet some brains.
