This was a very #exciting tweet for me to tweet, as you might guess. (Do I need a hashtag on #exciting? Ah why not.)
For those who don’t know, I’m fifteen years old and I’ve been raised in a home where if you go on the Internet, all you see about director Quentin Tarantino is that he’s an auteur, but if you go to your parents, he’s an exploitative “pig” who’s sense of decency is limited to 50 F-bombs and a quick murder, rather than 250 F-bombs and three graphic murders.
For those who already knew that, I’m sorry you had to hear my naïve complaints again. Just know that my complaints end soon. This weekend, I watch Jackie Brown, a Tarantino film with (none other than) Samuel L. Jackson. I’d like to give a Pulp Fiction one-liner at this moment, but that would put me into a stream of them; I can recite at least 7% of the movie and I haven’t seen a good 2% of it.
Okay…why not. How about Ezekiel 25:17 (Tarantino’s version), the Bible verse I’m memorizing for confirmation?
“The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee.” –Samuel L. Jackson
Anyway, I hope you are all as excited to read my Jackie Brown review (which should be up in about two weeks) as I am to watch the movie itself.
