friday movie quote

Inglourious Basterds

“Sgt. Hugo Stiglitz?… Lt. Aldo Raine. These are the Basterds. Ever heard of us?… We just wanted to say we’re a big fan of your work. When it comes to killing Nazis, I think you show great talent. And I pride myself on having an eye for that kind of talent. But your status as a Nazi killer is still amateur. We all come here to see if you wanna go pro.”

-Lt. Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt), Inglourious Basterds (2009)

patterns of farce

I was watching MeTV’s Super Sci Fi Saturday Night last weekend, when I got to see one of my favorite Star Trek episodes, “Patterns of Force.” Sure, it’s heavy handed in its messaging and filled with plot holes, but I still like it for some reason.

Anyway, as I awaited the start of the episode, it occurred to me that it had some similarities to a certain Quentin Tarantino movie. So I re-imagined the show a bit — hey, Hollywood does it all the time, right? — and I came up with this movie poster.

Inglourious Trekkers

I guess this is how you spend Saturday nights when you don’t have a social life.

friday movie quote

virgil

“Now the first time you kill somebody, that’s the hardest. I don’t give a shit if you’re fuckin’ Wyatt Earp or Jack the Ripper. Remember that guy in Texas? The guy up in that fuckin’ tower that killed all them people? I’ll bet you green money that first little black dot he took a bead on, that was the bitch of the bunch. First one is tough, no fuckin’ foolin’. The second one… the second one ain’t no fuckin’ Mardis Gras either, but it’s better than the first one ’cause you still feel the same thing, y’know… except it’s more diluted, y’know it’s… it’s better. I threw up on the first one. You believe that? Then the third one… the third one is easy, you level right off. It’s no problem. Now… shit… now I do it just to watch their fuckin’ expression change.”

-Virgil (James Gandolfini), True Romance (1993)
