Top 10 Things About Quentin Tarantino You Probably Didn’t Know

Quentin Tarantino has become one of the most popular and influential movie directors of all time. The writer/director burst onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs in 1992, and in the years since he has become known as the master of snappy and memorable dialogue, ultra-cool characters and genre-bending stories. Tarantino himself has become something of a controversial figure – fans claim that his homages show an appreciation of cinematic history while more critical types argue that he copies too much from other filmmakers and glorifies violence. Either way, it’s hard to deny his impact on the world of cinema. Tarantino himself is a very outspoken and candid public figure and as well as injecting some of his larger than life personality into his scripts he’s also done some pretty weird things off-screen, too.

5 Things Apple Must Do to Look Less Evil

It’s appropriate that the Apple logo on the iPad is black. The Cupertino, California, company’s image is taking on some awfully sinister tones lately. For a company that made its name fighting for the little guy, it’s a surprising reversal. In the past, Apple touted itself as the computer company for nonconformists who “Think Different.” Now the company is making moves that make it look like the Big Brother it once mocked. First Apple tightened its iron grip on the already-stringent iPhone developer policy, requiring apps to be made with Apple-approved languages, which disturbed some coders and even children. A short while later, Apple rejected some high-profile apps based on their editorial content, raising journalists’ questions about press freedoms in the App Store. Then, police kicked down a Gizmodo editor’s door to investigate a lost iPhone prototype that Apple had reported as stolen. Even Ellen DeGeneres and Jon Stewart have mocked Apple’s heavy-handed moves.

12 Movie Characters Who Were Set on Fire

A few days ago I gave you guys a list of memorable drowning deaths in movies. It goes without saying that drowning is a pretty horrible way to die. The only equally painful ways I can think of to be killed are being eaten alive or being set on fire. Well, we’ve sort of covered being eaten alive, which leaves us – as far as lists go – with being engulfed in flames. Being set on fire and burned alive doesn’t always result in death, but it always sucks. I don’t think anybody is going to dispute that. I managed to compose a pretty eccentric list of movie characters who were set ablaze; I was surprised to see the characters came from all genres of film and not just horror.
