Last century, along with Trev Neal, I used to present a fake game show on Saturday morning television called Every Loony Wins. It didn't stop there.

With long, straggly strands of hair seemingly attempting to conceal a receding hairline that reached noticeably high across his forehead, I couldn't help but wonder: is Tarantino one step away from taking Donald Trump's title of Combover King?

Why Those Hurling Abuse at Tarantino for Django Unchained Are Motivationally Just as Bad as These Racial and Cultural Paradigms They Claim to Be So Against

Rather than spending time hammering Tarantino for his use of violence in his films, how about we get the US government on the blower? They're the ones who insist on upholding a Constitution that allows gun ownership, which was put together at a time when people only ever owned muskets.

Is there any merit to this kind of shock viral advertising? This rather disturbingly titled viral - 'ça sent le sapin' (Smells Like Pine) was removed by Cuisinella themselves who branded it as 'Sick' - not before racking up a few hundred-thousand views and gaining the attention of viral ad fans everywhere though.

Jack Pelling

The story is refreshingly uncluttered, and the screenplay is packed full of great one liners, machismo grandstanding but also has a coarseness that reflects the unpalatable agendas of his antagonists. Tarantino is also on top of his game with the pen.
