But you're still a fat lonely bitter pussy, Pot.
When did Mandingo fighting become part of the cultural narrative of American slavery?
Honestly, It was the first I heard of it, but it seemed like something that would've been.
I thought mandingo meant huge black cock
And Jackie Brown is just separate.
It's surreally real
There's apparently a strong argument for Inglorious Basterds being the defining moment as the turning point for his alternate universe. People have pointed to the fact that the bear jew has the same last name as some characters in the regular universe and that there are apparently some other connections to be found. The argument for it being in the real category goes that, as Hitler was killed by a crack American squad in a movie house in a big massacre, it tended to provide more credence to violence and pop culture as normal things in society. As a result, people in Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are more comfortable with violence and pop culture as important parts of everyday society.
I'm writing this poorly, but this has been dissected at length in multiple places. Edit: a quick google search brought this up.
Now, I'm not implying that Quentin is racist - hell the Dennis Hopper monologue in True Romance is some of the funniest shit he's ever written. But to me it seemed like Django was nothing more than a feature length excuse for him to wallow in this obsession for nearly three hours. Maybe I'd have felt differently if Django wasn't the most boring character in the whole movie. Fox was mainly just asked to sit there looking hard and menacing in his sunglasses, while Dicaprio and Waltz got all the great lines. And that was my biggest issue with the movie: SPOILERS: if you're going to kill your two best characters with nearly 45 minutes remaining in the film, your "hero" had better interesting enough to carry the movie by himself. It's not enough that all the bad people get their comeuppance in the end if they're far more compelling than the man you're supposed to be rooting for. If this movie was truly empowering to blacks he would have written Jamie Fox a better character.
You touched on this when Woltz died and you got bored
