Best News of the Week

plus other great things the internet gave us

Best News of the Week goes to this interview with Quentin Tarantino where he discusses the power of food in his movies. While he seems to have intentionally focused on the ritual of sharing meals together in his films, he also simultaneously integrated phenomenal demonstrations of power into these sequences. I especially appreciated how all of his actors actually eat the food while they're filming, regardless of the number of takes, to make the scenes more believable. Plus, the thought Tarantino puts into these shots to glorify certain items from a meal (essentially making them iconic by association) to the point where the viewer is craving it by the time they leave the theater is simply brilliant. Watch the full video below-only a brief six minutes that is well worth your time.

Worst News of the Week goes to these ass-hats for suing the Met in New York. Do you research next time! Hopefully, this won't result in the Met instituting an admission fee but rather just making their policies more obvious.
