Location: Golfing with Stephen Hawking, he lied about his handicap. Didn't need a golf cart though, I just sat in his lap.
Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
He's recently been on UK TV advertising some new broadband/4G connection. Quite hilarious to see him make references to UK Culture. The best one being him referring to the cult Ken Barlow song 'He drinks in the Rovers'. Long story short, Ken Barlow is a character on Manchester Soap Opera Coronation Street. The local pub is called 'The Rovers Return Inn' and sometime a couple of years back a mini youtube sensation began when a few lads in a York takeaway shop came up with the Ken Barlow song.
Also its sad to see McQueen has lowered himself to be the Hayden Christiansen of the forum. I'd sooner be drunk and watch Nic Cage movies than ever share a connection with Hayden friggin Christiansen.
Reservoir Dogs (Fantastic male characters, beautiful writing and direction and not so many of the long winded monologues that he would later resort to. His best balance of style and substance imo.)
Pulp Fiction (Wonderful flowing narrative, amazing set pieces and dialogue let down slightly by the horribly indulgent portion of the film where Bruce Willis hangs out with his annoying as f**k girlfriend.)
Jackie Brown (Not as funny or as epic as his previous two but his best in terms of three dimensional characters.)
Kill Bill Vol 1 (Beautiful looking trash...)
Kill Bill Vol 2 (Beautiful looking trash that resorts in a hilariously awful anti-climax.)
Inglorious Basterds (One of the best opening scenes of any film ever followed up by a very uneven mixture of comedy and seriousness. I don't think it works at all.)
Death Proof (How Tarantino wishes women talked... nonesense film with great songs.)
The Coens destroy him tbh as far as King of the American Indies is concerned.
