Bad Mother Fucker.

QT BLOGATHON

So I know I've been a little MIA lately, but I've been locked in a heated battle with The Terminator, so it takes up a lot of my time. Oh, that and moving to Atlanta. Which is wild. But which also hasn't left a lot of down time for writing up reviews. And so in trying to make some time to kick my ass into gear, a couple things occurred to me:

  1. I love Quentin Tarantino. 
  2. I foam at the mouth whenever someone mentions Django Unchained
  3. Other fellow badasses share my affliction. 

And so I came to the solution. A blogathon. I personally suck at blogathoning. The Incredible Suit came up with the brilliant BlogalongaBond in which everyone reviews a Bond film every month until we reach Skyfall (I swear, it's not rabies, this happens with all December movies). Even though I'm still stuck somewhere in Roger Moore while everyone else is finally climbing out of that rabbit hole, it's a great concept. So I figured I'd apply the same rules to Quentin Tarantino, since we're all of ten months away and QT has written ten films (give or take 30 minutes of Four Rooms). What are the odds, right? So if I review a Tarantino a month, the schedule comes out looking something like this:

March: Reservoir Dogs
April: True Romance
May: Pulp Fiction
June: From Dusk Till Dawn
July: Jackie Brown
August: Kill Bill: Vol. 1
September: Kill Bill: Vol. 2
October: Grindhouse ("Death Proof")
November: Inglourious Basterds
December: Django Unchained

And so this is my pet project of the year, but I'm opening it up to anyone who's interested to join in. So maybe you write a review every month, maybe you don't. Maybe you mention it in a podcast, maybe you pull an old review out from the dust, maybe you make a list ranking the badass women The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, maybe you count all the mentions of Red Apple Cigarettes. This is the year of the Tarantino, anything goes, amiright?

Let's get this show on the motherfucking road. If anyone's interested, let me know. You can join in any time, all that jazz. Over the course of the month, send whatever you've got to mhufstader (at) gm.slc.edu and on the first of every month, I'll put up links so you can see what everyone else has got, even if I only have one madman following me on this badass fucking quest. So c'mon, daddy-os, don't be a--

  1. This is such a good idea!

    If I didn't suck so much at my own deal with blogging, I'd totally take part, too.

  3. This sounds like serious fun, though I am extremely disorganised and will forget to do this. But I will try and take part in it. QT FTW!!

  4. Welcome back! I really like this idea, but I'm probably bitching out. I'm trying to keep my goofy blogs to movies I've never seen (read: mostly shitty flicks), and unsurprisingly, I've see everything but Jackie Brown 80 bajillion times. JB...I saw once. Hmmm.

    Anyway, I'll tune in to what you're up to, 'cause this blog rules. Good luck.

    My favorite QT line ever: Well, let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

  7. @ Cherokee--Thanks! I feel you, this is more to kick my ass into gear than anything.

    @ Phips--What a coincidence, so did I! Which made me remember how completely fucking awesome that movie is. Come November, send me Inglorious Basterd's review and I'll put it up!

    @ Nikhat--Victory! One possible recruit! QT SO FTW! I really can't get enough of the man.

    @ M. Brown--Thanks, homie! Hey, I love me some shitty flicks. They're really the best kind. Jackie Brown is one of those movies that you watch once, and then it falls off your radar. But...seriously brilliant flick. I'm looking forward to getting back into it. Samuel L. Jackon's hair. His HAIR.

    HAHA. And that's definitely a brilliant one. There are way too many (in)glorious lines from him for me to even attempt to pick one out from the bunch.

    @ Russell--Yes! You so should. The more QT in this world, the better!

    @ Ty--Thanks! I would say more about Django, but I started foaming at the mouth again and I fear I might do water damage to my computer.

  10. This is the most kick ass idea. You are my BAMF for doing this. I'll be on board when I can. April is the big A to Z for me plus I'm moving, too , but I will for sure get to as many as I can.

  11. Excellent! I would eat up all of your reviews! A to Z and moving definitely take priority. Good luck with that!

  14. Ha! Just had a QT weekend and unfortunately finished the first three months. I even plan on Inglorious Basterds tonight. But I'll join in, send you my links, and can't wait for Django. GT is one of my all time favourites.
