Quentin and Me
Quentin & MeCinematic musings by Christopher C. Happ ©2005
Cocaine, vampires, martial arts, killers and hot babes. Up until a week ago, I may have been the only man in America without a DVD player; hey, I still got some eight track tapes! VHS tape has served my purpose but with prices low and titles plentiful it was time to move ahead. I’m so jazzed; I might even get an electric can opener!
Just like my audio leap from LP’s to cassettes to finally CD’s; my mission now was to track down all my favorites. Rather than buy a bunch of DVD’s that I’ll be retiring in another forty years, I chose the Blockbuster rental route. It’s quick and easy and no late fees; yeah we’ll see about that in the year 2045; when I take ‘em back!
My all time favorite film is True Romance (1993). I caught this one on HBO back then and taped it after viewing the previews. My VHS copy was trashed so this was my first rental. This is a twisted tale starring Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette, Dennis Hopper, and Gary Oldman and believe it or not a very young Brad Pitt and James Gandolfini—(The Sopranos) This film is in a genre that I refer to as “Twisted Love Stories
