    Today is the birthday of Quentin Tarantino., born in 1963.

    He is an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer and actor. In the early 1990s, he began his career as an independent filmmaker with films employing nonlinear storylines and the aestheticization of violence. His films include Reservoir Dogs (1992) , Pulp Fiction (1994) , Jackie Brown (1997) , Kill Bill (2003,2004) , Death Proof (2007) , and Inglourious Basterds (2009) . He has earned an Academy Award, a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA and the Palme d'Or, as well as Emmy and Grammy nominations. His movies are generally characterized by stylistic influences from grindhouse, kung fu, and spaghetti western films. Tarantino also frequently collaborates with his friend and fellow filmmaker Robert Rodriguez.

    Robert Frost's " Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" was used by Quentin Tarantino in Death Proof. Character Stuntman Mike recites the last bit, to get a lapdance from character Arlene, played by Vanessa Ferlito.

    '3 IDIOTS' just one of my favorite movies.I love that movie because It's humorous, full of moral and good values, and most of all I felt like being related/connected to that movie because same as the characters I'm an engineering student. I also love 'Howl's moving castle', 'X-men', Clash of the Titans',
    'Percy Jacson & the lightning thief', 'Vampires assistant', 'Sorcerers Apprentice',
    'Pirates of the Caribbean', and more....: D

    Hmm... let me think.
    My favorite movies are....
    A Walk To Remember,
    2012 etc.
    'A Walk To Remember' is an emotional film which still keeps a moral theme i.e to be optimistic to any situations.

    Just caught a little thing by Jarmusch titled 'Coffee and Cigarettes'. Some of the bits (it took 17 years to compile) were truly mind-boggling. Being a big Mahler fan I loved the section when 'I have been forgotten by the world', the saddest and most beautiful song ever written, permeates a dirty lunchroom. Overall, there is much more to be gained from the film, like the White Stripes talking about Tesla.

    'Let me in' one movie where i feel the remake is better than the original. Spellbinding.
