    Interesting that Kurt Russell is featured prominently on the poster but isn't listed in the credits.

    Before he started this "10 films" thing and was counting Kill Bill 1 & 2 as one film, Kill Bill 2 was actually referenced as "the 5th film by Quentin Tarantino." It's right on some of the movie posters. It was later changed to "The New Film From Quentin Tarantino."

    FWIW, I think the "10 films" thing is arbitrary and stupid. If he has more movies in him, he should make them. The great ones did. Spielberg, Hitchcock, and many of the other greats have more than 10 great films to their credit.

    I think he came up with ten films when he saw the battle going on over if movies would continue to be shot on film. That was when he, Chris Nolan, and others were talking to the companies that actually make film stock to get them to continue to do so. There was all that talk about it no longer being worthwhile to continue to produce film stock if people were all shooting digitally. Plus theaters had all been moving to digital projection.

    I think this is when Tarantino saw the writing on the wall and thought I am only going to do this for so much longer. He's not going to shoot digitally, he does not want to do it. There is likely a time limit on how much longer film stock will be produced and my thought would be as fewer and fewer people use it it will get more and more costly to shoot on film until it is gone. With the way funding motion pictures is going if he wanted to make another 3 to 5 films he probably is going to have to turn to a Netflix or Amazon that wants to stream his work for funding. Sure, he could get a Scorsese deal to get his work shown in some theaters but Quentin is a film snob and does not want to do it. Plus, I think at some point Netflix or Amazon will likely pass on paying the extra cost to shoot something on film because why do it when theaters and streaming are all digital anyway.

    So, he set this limit (60 years old or ten films whichever comes first) because he knows he will soon not be able to work the way he wants to work.

    On counting his films and how many he has made...well...he said he would make 10 feature length films. That removes Four Rooms as he shot just a segment of that. He calls Kill Bill one story, that's his intent that it be seen as one story and he likely feels that he had to present it that way because he could not get a 6 hour film into theaters in one go. So, I'm fine with that.

    Death Proof I don't think was shown on it's own in theaters was it? It is "feature length" and he appears to count it but if he chose not to count it that would be fine with me. Basically, it was made as part of the Grindhouse package.

    However, it seems to be part of his 10 so there's no debate there.

    Plus, now that he has set a clock as well as a number, he's running out of time to hit his ten and he knows it. He intends to take a year off so that means he will be at least 57 before he starts work on his next picture. He is going to write it, so likely a year on that. Then he has to get it set-up, cast, shoot it, cut it, and get it out. So, really he is now on the clock.

    He seems to care less about the ten than he does being done when he turns 60.

    It was released internationally on its own and it's played at the theater that Tarantino owns in America. I believe the reasoning to split the movies up was that the idea of a double feature wasn't done or not that popular in most international markets (though you could theorize that after Grindhouse failed financially in the US, Dimension needed to get as much out of the movies as possible so selling two tickets was better than one).

    One of my favorites of the entire series of Bounty Law is the two parter " Incident in Perrytown". It doesn't have any filler, and even the recap at the beginning of part. 2 is edited in a way that makes you excited for the new episode.

    "Salty, the Talking Sea Otter". Is a guilty pleasure, and I hear "Nebraska Jim", and "Hell Boats" are both getting Blu-Ray releases later this summer.

    It is a great time to be a Rick Dalton fan.
    :lol::lol::lol::rock:


    Edit: Glad I copied the page as it seems to be down now. That's no fun they should have kept it up.
    I didn't get a chance to see if Cliff Booth had one.

    More from the Rick Dalton IMDB page:

    Personal Details

    Other Works:
    (1965) Hullabaloo: Rick Dalton appeared on the show to promote his film “Tanner”. He was featured alongside famous British Invasion band The Kinks.

    (1967) TV Commercial: Red Apple Cigarettes “Take a bite and feel alright” campaign. NOTE: Introduced Red Apple’s “Low Tar” tan pack, the company’s first foray into filtered cigarettes.

    (1968) TV Commercial: Big Kahuna Burger NOTE: The catchphrase “Pineapple? On my burger?” was originally ad-libbed by Dalton backstage before the director chose to write it into the spot. The phrase went on to appear in five more commercials over the next two years.

    (1969) TV Commercial: Old Chattanooga Beer NOTE: Archival footage of Rick’s role in “Bounty Law” was used in the commercial to appeal to the beer brand’s cowboy aesthetic. Rick was reportedly not happy with this choice, fearing that it typecast him as a TV star.

    I think it's a safe bet that The Kinks are on the soundtrack.


    I hear they make a tasty burger.

    Saw a new trailer for this tonight. Wow. A mixture of comedy, drama, and tragedy. Great period detail. A horrible ending based on truth that was stranger than fiction. Looks to me like one of his best movies ever. Best picture nominee?

    I like the fake imdb profile. That's great. The poster art is wonderful too. I think it's pretty cool that he made an appearance in "Bachelor Father." Pretty awesome.
