I have to admit that this is one of the hardest lists I’ve ever tried to throw together. If there’s one thing Quentin Tarantino does well, it’s write great characters. However, if there’s one thing I love, it’s challenging myself. So, here’s my Top 5 Quentin Tarantino characters. Enjoy:

5. THE BRIDE (aka: BEATRIX KIDDO).

FILM: KILL BILL VOL. 1, 2 & 3 (announced)

While many will say that QT made Kill Bill because of his infatuation for Uma Thurman’s feet, I believe there’s a lot more going on here that gets ignored. Kill Bill is an interesting take on storytelling, even from a guy who prides himself on trashing traditional methods of storytelling. I think QT used it as an attempt to do what James Cameron did with the character of Ellen Ripley in the Aliens franchise. That is, to create a strong female protagonist in a male dominated landscape.

If last week’s traffic taught me anything, it’s that you like it when your friendly neighborhood Kaiderman talks film. Which is great because if there’s one thing I can do, it’s talk about film at great, great, often disturbingly great length. So here goes:

Being that it’s nearing the end of the year, we are being inundated with “Best Of” lists. So, I really didn’t want to do one. However, the more of them I read, the more and more I disagree and wanted to voice my own opinion. That of the fan and not of the critic. Technically, I should be doing the “Best Of The Decade” list (the decade ends this year, not next year… do the math). Unfortunately, due to the foolish ways of my youth, most of the decade is somewhat of a blur to me. So, I settle for this. Not really a best and worst list.
