  • Quote of the Day: “The King’s Speech”

  • Jose

    I remember first hearing about Tarantino being interested in a western film almost 2 1/2 years ago, and its so weird that its been so long. I think he said something about slavery being a huge role in it since you normally don’t see that in spaghetti westerns.

    And as for that quote, was that the sentence that will be muted for the PG-13 cut of the movie?

    Tarantino doing a spaghetti western? Cinema orgasm!
