Geeks Rule!

 

Welcome

I’ve named my blog after two very fine films (A Clockwork Orange and Pulp Fiction) by two very fine Directors (Quentin Tarantino and Stanley Kubrick) here’s why you should agree and read on:

Quentin Jerome Tarantino – Well you can’t beat that name for starters
Has an IQ of 160 despite dropping out of High School at age 16
Wrote Reservoir Dogs while working in a video store
Revived the careers of John Travolta, Bruce Willis and Uma Thurman
Makes reference to his favourite cult movies in his films
Has a good ear for music
Created the Big Kahuna Burger and Jack Rabbits Slims
Has an obsession with feet
Pretty much changed the scope of cinema and film making after Pulp Fiction
Loves Aussies!

Stanley Kubrick – Again killer name
Produced A Clockwork Orange, only one of the most memorable British films of all time, one that still holds up today
Not only is A Clockwork Orange unusual and disorientated, its a cinematic masterpiece…basically it’s movie Crack!
Stanley is the master of the slow method movie making
Works in a variety of genres
Is a complete and utter perfectionist and is known for his technical skills and reclusiveness
Plays with surrealism and expressionism
He started off as a photographer ( this gives me hope, as I too am a photographer)

Have I converted you?
