First time poster, saying hey.
I figured I would make a hello topic of some sorts.
Also I'm writing a book/movie script, and was wondering if anyone would read the first part (first book/film) and critic it. so I can improve it. If you want to just reply here with a contact or email so i can send you a digital copy.
Thanks again and I plan on being a active member.

I became a fan of Quentin Tarantino after seeing Reservoir Dogs in 1992. Ever since Ive been following his career and watching his films and his other projects. The reason I like QTs films is because I feel that he has brought back true cinema to film. Hes sort of a mix of all my favorite directors rolled into one. From the B movie directors to directors like Scorsese and Kubrick. His films excite me and I hope he keeps making them for a long time.

My Favorite directors are: Alan Parker, Abel Ferrara, Sam Peckinpah, PT Anderson, Martin Scorsese, and Orson Welles.
Some of my favorite films are: The Thing (1984) version, Clockwork Orange, Appocalaypse Now, Bad Lieutenant, Angel Heart, The Wild Bunch, Hard Eight (Sydney), and Raging Bull.
I was in film school when Pulp Fiction came out and exploded. Everyone and their mother tried to make a Tarantino film at school after that. There were a ton of horrible attempts. It was pretty amazing being there are that time though, because it just seemed like a new era was finding its legs in independant cinema. You just got this feeling, the indy filmmaker had a serious chance against the studio boys from that point on. Us future filmmakers really felt Tarantino gave us a little more hope that we could make it.
Anyway, I write scripts, play soccer and tennis, and party with the ladies hard into the Los Angeles night every weekend. Peace.
