Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino: Inglourious Basterds
We know the holidays can be a a difficult time to be around the family, so why not talk about something we can all agree on: killin' Nazis with Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds!
Listen in, go back and watch if you've not yet seen this masterpiece of alternate history war fiction, and if you know the whip cream strudel scene, let me know if you too think it's a lot more sexual than it seems!
If you're new, and are just tuning in, check out our other QT work. If his movies aren't your thing, we do a lot with books too; check those out! We'd like to think we've got something for everyone.
On our next cast, we're moving onto QT phase three with his final three films: Django Unchained, Hateful Eight, and most recently Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill Vol. 2
Hey there kiddo... let's finish this, shall we? Listen in as we talk about the second half of what Tarantino considers a single film; part samurai warrior, part spaghetti western.
Let's talk all things The Bride.
When you're done with this cast, check out our other conversations on Tarantino. Or better yet, check out his next film we will be talking about: Inglorious Basterds. That's right, we're skipping Death Proof. Leave your hate comments on firstname.lastname@example.org. One of us will patiently answer them in a dead language.
Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino: Kill Bill Vol. 1
There's only one thing left to do, and that's...review Quintin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1. Ok, maybe more than one thing left to do, since we're also drinking some mezcal.
Oh, and there's five other movies to talk about! If you like what you're hearing, please grab Kill Bill Vol 2 and circle on back in two weeks when we talk about that very same movie. After than we're on to Inglorious Basterds.
Pull up a chair and listen on in. If there's something you'd love to hear, hit us up at email@example.com.
Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino: Jackie Brown
Well, well, well, look who we have here. It's another Tarantino film. That's who. Welcome back to the Nerds Review Tarantino series, this time looking at Jackie Brown. Grab something cold to drink, and listen on in!
Your homework for next time is to watch both Kill Bill movies -- they're like chips; once you pop, your @ss ain't gonna stop, to quote friend of the cast, Samuel J. Jackson.
Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino: Pulp Fiction
Mmmmm Mmmmmm...that's a tasty podcast! We're back with movie two of our Tarantino study: Pulp Fiction! Listen in as we do terrible impressions of the best moments, and awkwardly use the phrase gimp mask a little too often!
But seriously, we talk about what aged well, what didn't age so well. If you don't remember that magical dance scene, go back and watch! Then, get ahead of our next cast by watching Kill Bill vols 1 and 2.
If you haven't yet, check out some of our earlier work too. Like anime? Hate anime? Listen in to our Akira cast. Or maybe listen to our Thrawn cast to figure out who they're talking about in Ashoka!
Nerds Review Quentin Tarantino: Reservoir Dogs
Well, well, well. If it isn't Mr. Nerd. We're back, and we're taking a different tack with the start of this season. Since we love all things nerd-related and adjacent, we're going to be talking about Quentin Tarantino's work, chronologically. Up first is Reservoir Dogs: the film that thrust the man into our orbit.
Listen in as we chat about the man himself, and if you haven't seen the film in a while, go back and give it a watch. Up next in our study is one tasty film, Pulp Fiction.
