    Quentin Tarantino's Unrealised Silver Surfer Project

    In case anyone is interested in this kind of thing, I've started my own amateur film podcast called Double Reel. I've just released the second episode, which includes a discussion on Tarantino and Silver Surfer, how close he got to making a film of it, would he still do it, what would it be like? A lot of speculation obviously but if you like geeky film stuff you might like it.

    How serious do you think QT is about stopping after 10 films?

    Quentin Tarantino's Unrealised Silver Surfer Project

    Thanks - I'm trying to find out more about it for a podcast. Basically I'm trying to build up a picture of what that film would be like, if in some kind of parallel universe it got made
  4. Kind of off-topic, but I know there's a few comic book fans and Marvel aficionados on here. I was reading about film projects that never took off and one of them was about Tarantino. Now he talks a lot about films he'd like to make and most of them never got last the "mentioning them one in an interview" stage. But apparently in the 90s he wrote a screenplay for Silver Surfer and submitted it to the film company that held the rights, but was turned down. Has anyone heard about this? Is there anywhere that has more details on that script or how close it got to being made at all?

    Non-political alternative to HDTGM?

    As it happens I've just started my own little amateur film podcast, so to help the OP out I'll ensure my next episode does a feature on Marxist European cinema, with in-depth reviews of Bertolucci's 1900, The Battle of Algiers and basically everything by Ken Loach

    Musical Mondays Week 85 Velvet Goldmine

    Fun fact: Ewan McGregor tells a story of how he and Christian Bale had to film a rooftop sex scene where the director and camera crew were positioned on the next building. There were instructions beforehand but once they were, so to speak, up there, they were on their own. So Ewan and Christian got on with it, and did their sexy acting for what seemed like a very long time. They then thought, "well they must have enough footage now" and Ewan turned to the next rooftop and shouted to the crew "Was that OK!?!?" At which point they saw that the director and crew had already packed up and left.

    Episode 233 — Space Jam LIVE!

    Some of these references to European sports might confuse our American friends so I'll provide some additional explanations for mine. Rugby: I was my team's Hooker, which meant I was paid to sleep with my teammates to keep up their morale Soccer: I was the left winger, so I was responsible for ensuring all the players were unionised and had adequate social security Cricket: my speciality was leg breaks. My teammates were each trained in treating different types of injuries Darts: there was no one better than me at finishing on a double. I wasn't bad at drinking the beers as well

    Are you THE Treat Williams??
  10. What if James Brolin's commitment to the cause was such that he was inhabiting the role of Bo Derek at all times in 1979 to fulfil his mission? So he would have filmed "10" with Dudley Moore as Bo Derek as part of his cover. In fact, what if he *created* the character of Bo Derek solely for his Disguisey missions, including marrying filmmaker John Derek and building an acting and modelling career? What if there was NO BO DEREK, and it was always James Brolin all along?
  11. If that's the case he could have done a lot worse than Jennifer Esposito

    92nd Academy Awards Nominations

    Yeah but only two movies were made last year that were directed by women, right?
  13. What kind of idiot wins the world wrestling championship against their will?? If they did that to me, not only would I gratefully accept, I'd defend my goddamn title.
