Jeff Wells has posted three awesome clips of Quentin Tarantino telling stories from the Directors on Directing panel in Santa Barbara this weekend. I’ve embedded all three after the jump. The first clip is about how directors raise the bar on each other and Tarantino recounts a story Brian DePalma told him about Martin Scorsese and Blow Out vs. Raging Bull. The second story is about how he had to prove himself the first week directing Reservoir Dogs. And the third story is about how James Cameron‘s Avatar might have affected Kill Bill if it had been released first. I could listen to Tarantino tell his stories all day long (which reminds me, why doesn’t XM/Sirius hire this guy to do a weekly one-hour satellite radio show?) Watch the clips after the jump.

Cool Stuff: Justin Reed’s Movie Art

Justin Reed is a 30-year old Vermont artist who has created a number of awesome movie-inspired artwork over the past few years. He has a BFA in Illustration from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, and has had art exhibition in galleries in and out of the country (every place from Canada to Los Angeles). I’ve included nine of my favorite pieces that Reed has created after the jump.

Unfortunately, Reed is not selling prints of any of this art work at this time, but if that changes, I’ll let you know. And of course, he also does commissions, so if you want to hire the guy, head on over to his website for full details.

tarantinolong1.jpgEver since the success of Pulp Fiction, director Quentin Tarantino has openly discussed his idea a sequel and prequel to Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The Vega Brothers would have united the characters played by Michael Madsen and John Travolta in both films (while the characters were never linked as brothers in the story, they both had the same last name). Now Tarantino has revealed what the movie would have and could have been, and it’s current status:

“I even had a title for it. It was called Double V Vega. It actually would have taken place during the time Vincent was in Amsterdam, when he was running one of Marcellus’ clubs in Amsterdam. And Vic goes to visit him,” revealed Tarantino on Opie and Anthony.

“But we’re a little older now, and since they both died – it would have to be a prequel,” said Tarantino. “I actually came up with a way I could have done it, even being older and dead where they all had older brothers and both of their brothers got together because the two guys died. And they wanted revenge or something like that. But now, they [the actors] are too old for that.””I got to say, it’s kind of unlikely now.”
