I can understand somebody just going ape-shit on paparazzi. To me, they are nothing but scum, and that's that (and if it wasn't a paparazzi, I should have asked first to do that). That said, I laughed like crazy because Tarantino just seems so weird. But hey, if that's where his inspiration come from, let him kick many paparazzo ass...  :-D

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

The friends of Friends: 17 gimmicky cameos intended to boost TV ratings
Source: The Onion AV Club

12. Quentin Tarantino, All-American Girl ("Pulp Sitcom")
http://www.avclub.com/content/feature/the_friends_of_friends_17/2

Quentin Tarantino made his name by spinning pop-culture trash into arthouse-approved gold, though he actually seems content with just the trash, as his checkered IMDB entry shows. Rivaling his stint as a celebrity judge on American Idol as the least distinguished entry on his résumé is his role as criminal video supplier Desmond Winocki on Margaret Cho's forgettable mid-'90s sitcom All-American Girl. Humbly recognizing that Pulp Fiction was a slightly more important cultural touchstone than All-American Girl, the show didn't bother integrating Tarantino into its well-worn family-sitcom fabric. Rather, the show tried to integrate itself to Tarantino, spinning off a series of lame references to his movies already picked over by every sketch-comedy troupe in the country. (The mysterious briefcase! The twist contest! The samurai sword!) All-American Girl lasted just one more episode.

I dont know about that Tarantino cameo, but I definitely think Jessie Spano and A.C. Slater were robbed in that dance off.

Double check that TiVo: Miley Cyrus, Quentin Tarantino, JHud on 'Idol'

And then there were seven. And then they sang "Songs of the Cinema." Which may or may not encompass every song ever written.

Oddly enough, director Quentin Tarantino -- best known for directing blood-thirsty films like "Pulp Fiction" -- is coming to "American Idol" next week to shepherd our Final 7 through "Idols at the Movies" week.

Tarantino an "Idol" fan? Believe it or not, yes; he has actually appeared on the show before. Who do you think is his favorite Season-8-er? Since sly and sexy Uma Thurman is his muse, maybe Tarantino likes the subtle cool of Matt Giraud.

After Tarantino takes the stage on Tuesday, Jennifer Hudson will appear the following night. The Oscar-winning actress and "Idol"-alum will be joined on Wednesday by -- wait-for-it, wait-for-it -- Miss Miley Cyrus.

Thus, if you are attending the elimination show on Wednesday, be sure to bring earplugs. Tween screams have been known to edge into the whistle range when Cyrus enters a building. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Hudson will perform her new single, “If This Isn’t Love,” and Cyrus will sing a song called "The Climb," from the upcoming “Hannah Montana: The Movie.”

We need QT to be more like Woody Allen. Making a movie every 6 months.
The Beatles know Jesus Christ has returned to Earth and is in Los Angeles.

What in the world does this sentence mean?  Should Matt Giraud feel honored?  Offended?  Or just confused?
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Quentin Tarantino Talks The 'Casino Royale' Bond Movie He Wanted Pierce Brosnan For; Still Wants Credit For 2006 Reboot
Source: ThePlaylist

You've probably heard by now at one point in the aughts (circa 2004/2005) Quentin Tarantino was toying with the idea of directing a James Bond film and the 007/Ian Flemming story he wanted to tell was, "Casino Royale." As he puts it, on a recent appearance on the Jonathan Ross BBC show to promote, "Inglourious Basterds," the notoriously hands-on producers of that franchise thought the original novel was "unfilmable" and didn't want to make it (even though a satirical version was made in 1967 with Peter Sellers, David Niven and Woody Allen). But of course they eventually did reboot the series with Daniel Craig and it was obviously one of the best Bond films in almost decades (too bad about that "Quantum Solace" though).

Tarantino wanted Pierce Brosnan as his Bond, but as he told reporters in 2005, "Once I heard Brosnan isn't going to be doing any more Bond films, that killed it as far as I was concerned." In this BBC interview, the filmmaker says he was responsible for kick starting the re-interest in 'Royale,' and naturally, not all that humbly. "The reason they did 'Casino Royale' all comes down to me," he said pointedly. "But after I said it and talked about it, then all the big things on the Internets was that's what all the fans want to see. So that's when [the producers] said, 'Oh, maybe it's not so unfilmable now.' " He's not kidding either. In a 2007 interview the director said, "I resent that none of them gave me a shout out to recognize that I'm the one who got them to make 'Casino Royale'." We're probably all better Quentin did bother, no?

Quentin Tarantino saves L.A. theater
Filmmaker now serving as landlord of New Beverly Cinema
Source: Hollywood Reporter

The purchase, though, was not a smooth process. According to Torgan, the original landlord and prospective buyer moved to block Tarantino's bid. The sides haggled for months, but eventually a deal paved the way for a buyout. (A nondisclosure agreement prevents the Torgans or Tarantino from revealing the purchase price or the identity of the former landlord.)

Tarantino is now the owner, but he allows Michael and his family to run the theater's daily operations -- with his occasional input.

"Quentin couldn't be a better landlord," Torgan said. "He's involved with suggesting movies when he likes, but he lets us do most of the booking."

Tarantino recently organized an Angela Mao kung fu night featuring "Return of the Tiger" and "Stoner" as well as an "all blood" night with "Blood Spattered Bride" and "Asylum of Blood."

"I can make programming suggestions when I want to," Tarantino said. "It is cool to have a theater that I can use to show what I like."

Tarantino held his "Inglourious Bastards" DVD screening event at the New Beverly. And he will welcome guest programmer Jason Reitman, a pal from this year's awards circuit, to the theater Friday for six days of Reitman's favorites.

Since taking over the property, Tarantino has made it possible for the New Beverly to undergo some badly needed renovations such as new light fixtures and seats and a digital projection system. But he doesn't want the place to change too much. The 35mm projector is still the preferred screening method, popcorn and sodas remain cheap -- and the Torgans are still in charge, with an Oscar-winning angel over their shoulder.

"As long as I'm alive, and as long as I'm rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm," Tarantino said.

more on this very nice story:

QUENTIN TARANTINO has stepped in to save a Los Angeles movie house from closure - he's agreed to buy the cinema to keep it in business.

The Hollywood director has been watching films at the New Beverly Cinema since he was a teenager and several years ago he was devastated when he learned the family business was suffering financial difficulties.

He contacted the manager, Sherman Torgan, and offered to give the movie theatre $5,000 (£3,125) a month to keep the business running.

He tells Reuters, "It was going to be turned into a Super Cuts (hair salon). I'd been coming to the New Beverly ever since I was old enough to drive there from the South Bay - since about 1982. So, I couldn't let that happen.

"Since I'm a print collector and I screen movies at my home, I heard from other collectors and projectionists that Sherman might have to close down. So, I just started paying him ($5,000) per month. I considered it a contribution to cinema."

But after Torgan passed away in 2007, the landlord who rented the space to the family was determined to sell up and Torgan's son Michael contacted Tarantino - who stepped and bought the building in a bid to keep his beloved cinema open.

Tarantino adds, "I always considered the New Beverly my charity - an investment I never wanted back. I already had a good relationship with the family and the theatre, so it was a natural step (to buy the cinema). It is cool to have a theatre that I can use to show what I like. As long as I'm alive, and as long as I'm rich, the New Beverly will be there, showing double features in 35mm."

Notice the year 2007.  This happened months and months ago, and if it's appearing as news now it's simply award season puff.
