Pipe-measuring contest

Pompous Film Snob has been bitten by the blog event bug — warning! alliteration overload! — of late and has invited a host of us work-for-peanuts movie nutters to participate. The topic, I’m sure you’ll agree, is a lil beaut: Pick your favorite character (major, minor, etc.) from a Quentin Tarantino film (“True Romance” and “From Dusk Till Dawn” included) and do a character study.

(Hey, PFS, do you think you could have posed a more difficult question for Tarantino groupies?)

Pop by Frank’s blog next week — actual posting date TBA — to see if your favorite character made the cut and to find out what makes him or her tick. This blogger will be deconstructing the pathology of an “Inglourious Basterds” main player, but not the one you’d expect.

The face of Jewish vengeance wears red lipstick.

  1. Oooh, so many fave characters just in IB alone. But two definitely stood out front and center.

  2. I was tempted to write about a character in Basterds, but went with Bill.

  3. Oh gosh – it’s gotta be Beatrix Kiddo right? That’s my vote, to be sure. Also, with my hours of toiling, I’m not seeing returns on these “peanuts.” The best I can get is a few sunflower seeds…

  4. Psst… Did you get my email? Drop me a line, there are slight changes afoot with our little project next weekend.

  5. @ Fitz – I thought I was doing Bill? Ah well, he’s got character enough for everyone.

    And it’s a really cool event. Perfectly film nerdy.

    • @ Fitz + Darren — Whichever one of you ends up writing about Bill, I can’t wait to read it — I never could get a read on what that guy was about!

      @ Luke — Beatrix Kiddo made my top 5, but I had to go with Shoshana if only because I’m still pissed that Melanie Laurent did not get any major awards for the performance.

  6. Don’t worry Darren, I have Butch. I have my piece written and sent.
