    Default Quentin Tarantino Movie Discussion

    OK... I am currently watching Reservoir Dogs for, like the 237th time, and it hits me...


    Is Mr. White also Wolf from Pulp Fiction? I know Harvey plays both characters but are they one in the same?

    I don't think he is. I don't think that Tarantino's movies are intertwined in the way that say, Kevin Smith's movies are. I think that he just likes to use many of the same actors, like a lot of directors do.

    well, he mentions to Mr. White... asks how Marcelles is... also, Mr. Blond is a Vega (Vincent Vega).

    Also, officer Scagneti (sp) is mentioned as well... wasn't he in another film?

    Ah, I don't know. Maybe he is the same character, then.

    I don't think its the same guy. The characters are acted differently. Wolf, I think, is meant to be smoother, more cultured, perhaps more educated. He was definately higher up on the food chain than Mr. White. White, while being a professional thief, was still a foot soldier. White isn't dumb by any means but he doesn't strike me as the kind of person that could handle Wolf's role as a "cleaner". If you watch both movies one after the other you'll see what I mean.

    Besides...Mr. Wolf has a moustache.

    I'm with Cozener on this. Mr. White is not as cultured, smooth and bright as Wolf. Not the same.

    Maybe he's the Wolf's country cousin.

    Mr. White - Lawrence Dimmick

    The Wolf - Winston Wolf

    Two completely different guys with different personalities, styles, jobs, and names.

    The Wolf had been written specifically for Keitel, because without him, Tarentino would not have been able to make Reservoir Dogs.

    Also played a cleaner in "Point of no Return" I think. That guy looked a lot like the one in Pulp Fiction.

    Ahh. One of my ALL TIME favorite movies. I think I may be almost as obsessive over Tarantino as I am of King.

    He tends to use a lot of the same names in his films. I've noticed at least two "Bonnies" and "'Bama/Alabamas" and so on, but rarely anything to make me think that those names were meant to insinuate the characters were the same.

    Default Inglorious Bastards - A film by Quentin Tarantino

    Tarantino Teases Inglorious Bastards
    World War II remake to take its lead from Kill Bill.
    by Orlando Parfitt, IGN UK



    UK, June 20, 2008 - After announcing at this year's Cannes that his next film would definitely be his World War II actioner Inglorious Bastards, the Net has been rife with speculation about Quentin Tarantino's upcoming effort.

    A particularly juicy nugget emerged from aintitcool today, with the site reporting that QT himself told Enzo Castellari – director of the original Inglorious Bastards – in an interview for the film's DVD release that his update would be split over two films, similar to Kill Bill.

    Apparently, during research for the script – which revolves around a team of hardened criminals who break free from a transport during WWII and have to fight both the Nazi's and the Allies enroute to freedom in neutral Switzerland –Tarantino uncovered so much material he felt it couldn't be shoe-horned into one feature.

    We still haven't heard any casting confirmation, though QT faves such as Tim Roth, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, have all been discussed for roles.

    Waiting patiently for this one. I just wish American audiences would have the patience to sit through a 4-6 hour movie, so we could get it all in one chunk.
