When the weekend rolls around after an exceptionally long week – one of my favorite downtime activities is NetFlix bingeing. Truth be told, it’s one of the only types of bingeing I actually suggest – but cuddle binges, kitty binges, nature binges and festival binges are pretty excellent as well. Whenever we roll over to a new month, I always take to the site to check out the latest and greatest in movie releases and updates – and low and behold, the first thing I see when I login is Kill Bill v1 -then Kill Bill v2 – and Pulp Fiction…and I had to start giggling. I’m such a Tarantino fangirl and they have everything he’s ever put his awesomely creative brain towards as director, producer, writer, cinematographer, actor and more. All Tarantino have a few commonalities: an epic cast – and quite often the use of recurring actors, a uniquely beautiful way of blending the score into the movie, and last but definitely not least mindblowing script. For the last week, I’ve been getting a daily dose of incredible dialogue and witty banter that I’ve been itching to share. Without further ado, my favorite words of wisdom from Tarantino – enjoy!
“If my answers frighten you then you should cease asking scary questions.”
“Fuck pride. Pride only hurts, it never helps.”
“They say the number one killer of old people is retirement. People got a job to do, they tend to live a little bit longer so they can do it. I’ve always figured that warriors and their enemies share the same relationship. So, now that you’re not gonna have to face your enemy no more on the battlefield, which “R” you filled with? Relief … or regret?”
–Kill Bill Vol2
“Are you going to bark all day, little doggy? Or are you gonna bite?”
“Eddie, if you keep talkin’ like a bitch, I’m gonna slap you like a bitch.”
“You can’t trust Melanie but you can trust Melanie to be Melanie.”
“What the fuck happened to you, man? Shit, your ass used to be beautiful!”
– Jackie Brown
“Gentlemen, you had my curiosity – but now you have my attention.”
