    I have a real dislike for Tarantino. He always comes across as really arrogant. Plus his films are always an hour longer than they need to be. I don't mind watching a 3 hour film as long as there's 3 hours worth of film there to watch.

    Django Unchained was brutal and brilliant.

    I've only heard good things of it, but as I say, personal bias. :p

    Say what? Must reframe from posting the Frisky Dingo/Archer 'What do you mean video' with the male nudity at the end.

    How is this even possible given the sheer brilliance of all of his movies? I don't think he comes across as arrogant. He's just extremely excitable when talking/discussing movies since he has such a passion for them. Kill Bill remains in the top of my all time favorites.

    I don't particularly dislike Tarantino, but the only movie of his that I really liked was Pulp Fiction. The rest (the ones I saw anyway) were just kind of "meh" for me.

    I love the Kill Bill movies myself. Its a shame part 3 and the anime prequels look unlikely now.

    He can talk about retiring, but so did Stephen King.

    Not retiring IIRC, just wanted to work on other projects.

    I thought he said Django Unchained was his last movie? I don't think he'll be able to stay away from directing though.

    Random: Tarantino's mom was one member of Wilt's 20,000 club.;)

    Loved all of Tarantino's flicks. He is arrogant, no doubt about that, but many artists are. If he doubted his ability, I don't think he'd pull off his films.

    There are 3 scenes in Inglorious Basterds alone that are basically master-class directing and script writing.

    Great... Star Wars episode 7 might be delayed so J.J Abrams can make Star Trek 3...

    Okay, I just have to share the most recent embarrassment my home country is making global headlines with:

    Austria's Turkish Cultural Center created a controversy over Jabba's Palace Lego Playset. :rolleyes:

    The Turkish Cultural Center in Austria got themselves riled-up over nothing. Truly silly how overly sensitive some people are for the sake of causing a fuss and getting some attention as a result of it. I thought this merely a hoax when someone first told me.

    "In response, Lego said that "Jabba's Palace" wasn't modeled after any mosque or other holy place, but after, um, Jabba's palace."

    Eww, if it isn't Maul the toy whore

    I'd never believe that a scene in which someone asks for and drinks a glass of milk could become so sinister.
    Where is this info?
    Why hasn't that Turkish center been reprimanded for even insinuating that the Hagia Sophia monument even remotely resembles Jabba's palace?

    We still talking about Django?

    Django is a bloody awesome film. Though it does drag on a bit towards the end.

    I'm either gonna see Zero Dark Thirty or Django on Sunday, I guess they both look alright, but I'm leaning towards seeing Zero Dark Thirty a bit more.

    I would say Django just for Christopher Waltz's performance.
