The Quentin Movie-Q
Start writing a post

According to Luis Putnam Turco's 'Book of Forms' published in 2012, a "Movie-Q" is a type of poem invented by Bill Knott, a four line poem that is intended to be humorous, or piquant, or pointed. The complete title of the film must appear in the poem with a rhyme scheme of aabb (the first two lines must rhyme with one another and the last two lines must rhyme with one another). Over the summer, I decided to take my own shot at the poem and invent a three part "Movie-Q" based on three movies by my favorite film director: Quentin Tarantino. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the "Quentin Movie-Q", soon to be updated with all eight with of his films as well as any future films he will produce in the future. Enjoy.


We all saw which of the dogs in Reservoir Dogs was incognito when,
after that super-sounds of the seventies boogie-down by Madsen,
that turned Marvin into Van-Gogh,
Orange lit Blonde before Blonde lit the scarecrow.

Hans Landa, with his colossal calabash pipe, knew
Mr. LaPadite was no match to his visit that would end with adieu.
But was the Jew Hunter any match against Aldo the Apache,
to be in cahoots with the Inglorious Bastards at the cost of being labeled a Nazi?

Pulp Fiction is so cool!
You gotta love the end where the sly tongued Samuel
read Roth the omnipotent Ezekiel 25:17,
gettin’ his Bad Mother Fucker and leaving after one helluva scene.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
