    Who else was grossed out by 1:05 - I love Fallon and Tarantino and still can’t watch this network/ratings stuff. It’s like purposely aimed at our collective lowest level of everything

            3:33 Are you serious🙄....
            Jimmy thinks it's a DVD and Quentin thinks it's a blu-ray and they're looking at it like it's a piece of alien tech.

            I know people stream a lot nowadays, but at least Quentin should know what a BD 4k looks like... it literally says it at the top of the box that he's clearly looking at because he's remarking on the color.

                        I love how Tarantino always mentions Jackie Brown, it's his most character-sympathetic movie and stands out among his filmography for the way the characters feel really loved and honored by the filmaker, not just as cool caricatures.

                          I really enjoyed "Jackie Brown," and was amazed by the performances Tarantino got out of Pam Grier and Robert Forster -- two actors long-since discarded by the mainstream. Before, while I had appreciated QT's style, I considered him more of a showman than a top director. Jackie Brown put everything in perspective -- Tarantino is a top director and a great showman.

                              How weird is it that he was doing a cover of the world’s best known cover artist?
                              Fred Willard was on SNL once and he did an impression of an Elvis Presley impersonator.

                                  I've heard rumours of the Elvis Golden Girls scene years but never seen it before. Is this the first time the footage has emerged?

                                            He is so much fun to listen to. He is so passionate about whatever he is talking about at the moment, you can’t help but be captivated and enthralled.

                                                          Tarantino has become such a great storyteller in his interviews over the years. I love the guy from way back when, but his mania and enthusiasm has, I think with age and such tremendous success, mellowed him a bit.
