Ugh, QUENTINNN. I know, every time I weigh in to discuss how I feel about our friend QT, we have to have a big fight about it, because some of you love him so much and he is your best friend and you hang out together all the time while discussing how totally influenced by Godard and Bruce Lee and old GI Joe commercials that one scene in his last movie is, which is actually what Quentin Tarantino does to achieve orgasm instead of having sex, so you are his favorite as well, apparently. “But there are sexy ladies! With fight scenes! Being sexy! And fighting,” is what you will say to me, when I discuss his works. And yet, I still vote No on the Listening to Quentin Tarantino Speak and/or Watching His Films Without Developing a Massive Irritation Headache question. But I still love you, even if these Tarantino movies you keep watching are my double-plus-unfavorites! So it is all right, really.
Oh, but guess who named date-rape-fest Observe and Report one of his favorite movies OF THE YEAR? Yep. Vulture just told me about it, so it is true! And also, there is ANOTHER major irritation-source packed away in (SPOILER ALERT) Quentin Tarantino’s list as well. See if you can guess which one it is! And also, Precious? “Hmm, I love how many terrible things happen to a lady in this movie, but it could use more kung-fu fighting,” is probably what Quentin Tarantino (or the version of him I have constructed out of sheer animosity in my head) thought upon seeing Precious.
You know, just this morning I was worrying about losing my edge, what with the very positive place I have arrived at in my life? And yet, all it takes is Quentin Tarantino (YOUR FAVORITE. I KNOW. I WILL NEVER TAKE QUENTIN AWAY FROM YOU, I PROMISE) to bring me right back into a place of productive irritation once again. Good to know!
