All I'm gonna say is I think you oughta see GRINDHOUSE before you're sick to death over the hype about it.
I was living in Mobile and had two work-related weeks in Memphis when Pulp Fiction came out, so I caught it at a local theater during the interim weekend. Walking out of the theater afterwards, I could not recall the last time I'd had that much pure, unadulterated fun going to the movies. Tarantino's never quite lived up to that moment; Rodriguez came awfully close with Sin City. Only one other film springs immediately to mind as matching or besting that sense of amusement-park-ride since.
Though I confess to an irrational desire to see it again at the Brattle at some point. 3 hours in the Brattle's seating with some guy's head in the way would probably go a long way toward replicating the experience they were going for...

See Double Dare? It's a documentary about female stunt doubles and it features Zoe. You actually see her audition for Tarantino for Kill Bill.
Caught it last night, and grinned like an idiot for the entire ride home. This one may be worth a second trip to the movies.

Who's intellectual close friends get to call him T.C., providing it's with dignity.
I have absolutely no idea what this means, beyond the Top Cat ref, but I'm unscreening it anyway.
