"I’m no hero," Tina declares in season three. "I put my bra on one boob at a time like everyone else." But for many, Tina does represent a new kind of hero. She weathers the anxieties of adolescence while gently testing the waters of her confidence. Tina might not be great at public speaking, but her message is clear: embrace your weirdness. Embrace your Tina.

“If you get the passion to do it and you do it and it doesn’t work out, I worked for three years on a 16mm film that ended becoming nothing but guitar picks. I was very disappointed when I realized it wasn’t any good, but it was my film school and I actually got away really cheap. When it was all over, I knew how to make a movie. I didn’t want to show anybody that but I had the experience.” —Quentin Tarantino
Quentin Tarantino: Hollywood’s Boy Wonder takes you into the world of the filmmaker who went from working at a video rental store to becoming a Sundance favorite with Reservoir Dogs and then a Palme d’Or winner with Pulp Fiction. The documentary is comprised by telling interviews with Terry Gilliam, Samuel L. Jackson, and others, though much of the screen time is spent with Quentin Tarantino himself, who shares his thoughts on his past, his then early film career, and his approach to filmmaking. An important lesson to take from the documentary is that success does not happen overnight. From his first attempt at film with My Best Friend’s Birthday to Reservoir Dogs, Tarantino struggled to get his film career started. When speaking of Hollywood, he says, “in this town you can die of encouragement,” and explains how for 3 years, he was always two weeks away from having a budget. As the documentary shows, even when an additional 2 years passed by, Tarantino kept working at it, which is the crucial lesson to take from his film career… Good filmmaking is Passion, Patience, and Perseverance. —A-BitterSweet-Life

Women are not objects! I am a 16 year old girl who feels the need to cover my body in public because of perverted assholes like this. I am completely disgusted by that video and the comments on it.
