Quentin's Qorner: A New Sport Idea!
Quentin’s Qorner is a weekly column written for OSN by award-winning director Quentin Tarantino about his views on his own movies and how they relate to the world of sport. This is the final installment in a series of three articles. Click here to read the others in the series.
Anyway, my idea this week is a brand new sport that I call “Movieball,” because it involves one of my favorite passions: movies. The first thing you’ll need to do to play Movieball is gather as many movies as you can. Any type of movie will do – old movies, new movies, good movies, great movies, DVDs, VHS, Laserdiscs, Betamaxes, or even Blu-rays! Then, grab your flamethrower (if you don’t have one, you can borrow one of mine) and melt those movies down into a viscous molten liquid. Mold that liquid into an orb and let it cool. That will be your movieball.
|You could even play SUPER movieball. Not sure how/if it would be different from regular movieball yet.|
Next, bring your movieball and as many weapons as you can carry to my backyard and have at it! Winner gets to come inside afterward for a glass of lemonade and a tub of authentic cinema popcorn I saved from the Reservoir Dogs premiere! You remember Reservoir Dogs, right? What a great movie! I wrote and directed it, which I think is pretty cool.
Now, does anyone know a surgeon that’s good at removing film from your retinas? I’d love to speak with them!
Quentin Tarantino loves movieball. This column will return. --Nathan Mostow
