Death Proof is two hours of women's feet and legs. I don't know if it's just a genre convention (Smokey and the Bandit is the same way) or if Quentin has a fetish.

I'm not making a list until I catch a few more, mainly The Revenant and Anomalisa. I almost went to see The Big Short but already got bored before I left the house. Maybe I'll check it at the $2 theatre, waiting for The Martian to make it there as well.

He definitely has a fetish. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

So he does.

The Quentin Tarantino Toe-Sucking Sex Email That Will Haunt Your Dreams

This one of the funniest damn exchanges I've ever read:

Quote:
Quentin: Wow so you really loved Reservoir Dogs, huh? Which of my other films do you like? (this blatant arrogance is the type of douchebaggery that really gets my gourd about Hollywood, so now my film boner has turned to film hate fuck, and I feel the need to cheekily undermine Quentin.)

Me: Oh wow. You know, I really didn't like Kill Bill...

Quentin: What? What do you mean? 1 or 2?

Me: Ehh, a little bit of both. I just didn't care for them.

Quentin: Wow...I don't think anyone has said that to my face about my seminal films.

Me: Perhaps it's because you call them your seminal films. Shouldn't you wait for someone else to say that?

Quentin: You know, you've got a mouth on you. I like that.
I'm still laughing. Assuming there's any truth to this at all, gotta give the guy his props for living a life that closely mirrors one of his own films.

It's already at the $1.50 theater in NoHo >_>

Even a $1.50 movie couldn't get Laz to drive to the valley.

It's a draft, plenty more to see in the coming months. I've spent the last year and a half or so focused almost completely on classic Hollywood and I guess it's rubbed off somewhat on my trends regarding new releases.

The Hou is easily the most breathtakingly gorgeous film in several years, but ultimately kinda disappointing as a massive fan. It's more austere than his 21st century work us been till now, lacking in charm and approachability which complements the most historical and cultural concerns of his other films. I'd rank it close to the bottom of his output after one viewing but I could see that changing eventually.

As for The Lobster, I've seen no signs of a release around here and it's screener season.

Man, I love screener season.

Incredibly, I've only seen 27 new films this year compared to 61 last year. It would be stupid of me to attempt to compare my feelings on the two years at this point.

I used to frequent that theatre when I lived in Hollywood, we were near the 101 exit on Sunset and it was a pretty quick hike. Now it's quicker for me to jump on the 2 and hit the Regency cheapo in Pasadena.

Also, for what it's worth, I'm going on a date this weekend with a girl who lives in Studio City. We'll see if she's worth repeated drives up there.

You lived over by Amoeba? Nice. That's a great central location.

The Regency has treated us well since we moved out here. I wish they did some Oscar-themed slates like our AMC did, but if you keep an eye out, you can see most of the more mainstream nominees by the end of February.

Anyone ever use the Fandor app? I'm just a few days away from the trial ending. It has quite a selection of art/indie/cult films.

Random Movie Talk, Louis the XIVth Edition

I'm at the Egyptian Theatre screening of Carol. Cate and Rooney are in the building. This is awesome.

As an added bonus, they're also showing Far From Heaven, which has been in my Netflix queue for an eternity.
