One of the most famous scenes in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs is the opening diner sequence, where the group of gangsters debate the meaning of Madonna’s 1986 hit “True Blue.” After watching the film, Madonna sent Tarantino a signed copy of her album Erotica with the note, “To Quentin, It’s about love, not dicks.” That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, so turn up K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the 70s and get to know more about Reservoir Dogs!

Quentin Tarantino’s eighth movie is named The Hateful Eight. How perfect is that?
On Saturday, Tarantino flew into New York from his home in Los Angeles to make an appearance at a rally protesting instances of police brutality in the city.
Quentin Tarantino, along with Paul Thomas Anderson, is one of the few filmmakers fighting to preserve the essence of film. We already knew that Tarantino fans and cinephiles will get a special treat this holiday season when his upcoming The Hateful Eight opens early for a limited 70mm presentation in approximately 100 retrofitted theaters. But those who catch the western in its Ultra Panavision film format will also be treated to an extended cut of the movie.
Most movie fans love Netflix because it allows them a rotating library of movies plus original shows to stream instantly for a fixed price. But the king of all the movie fans, Quentin Tarantino, says he’s never used Netflix and has no plans to. He’s still watching his movies on VHS and DVD thankyouverymuch.
Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction was groundbreaking in many ways, particularly in the way its characters talked. The film uses the F-word 265 times, which in 1994 was second only to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, which had 300. In the years since Pulp Fiction hit theaters, the usage of the word spiked and now Pulp Fiction is not even listed among the Top 25. That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, so grab a Royale With Cheese and get to know more about Pulp Fiction!
As noted in the trailer for The Hateful Eight and as highly promoted by Quentin Tarantino himself, the director utilized Ultra Panavision 70 lenses along with 65mm film to create a widescreen effect that hasn’t been on the big screen in decades. According to a new report, Gareth Edwards may be taking a little inspiration from Tarantino on Star Wars: Rogue One.
It Follows was a major sleeper hit when it was released earlier this year. Originally meant for VOD, director David Robert Mitchell’s film performed so well in a limited release, it was expanded to over 1,200 theaters two weeks later. Audiences loved it and it has a 96% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Yesterday, in an interview with Vulture, Quentin Tarantino said that he liked the film, but was frustrated because it could have been great. How could it have been great? Allow Quentin to explain.
