Very Interesting. Never really looked at that side of his films.
damn i want one of those milshakes from the Pulp Fiction scene now :/
Okay, I wasn’t hungry before…
His “conversation at the table” scenes are his best ones. I mean, it’s a conversation, frequently about mundane themes, but you watch it, you don’t realize they’re 10 minutes long, you enjoy them, and that’s rare in most movies (at least for me).
I’ve always thought that Big Kahuna burger looked incredible.
I want that goddamn strudel so bad
I always thought that burger looked just amazing, proof the cinematography is good when it makes your stomach react
He was able o have them discuss the plot in Django when they were in the canyon eating beans. Classic cowboy food, beans.
The scene of Bud in his trailer sloshing drinks into jars from the blender has always seemed very visceral to me.
Ah, ah, ah! Wait for the creme.
I’ve never wanted strudel more than watching that scene with Shoshanna,
side note: she has a very pretty face.
Oh QT i believe the word is symbology
Funny that he mentions hating watching movies where people are pretending to sit there and eat, or altogether avoid eating. The ONE scene that bugs me in Reservoir Dogs dogs is when Pink and White are standing in the hide-out *pretending* to smoke *unlit* cigarettes.
Edit: Alot of people are saying Pink’s (Buscemi’s) cigarette is lit, I will have to rewatch to confirm. (As if I needed an excuse to watch it again =P)
> just kept ingesting sweat crap
Reminds me of a character from Death Note
TIL Tarantino’s second career should be food commercials.
Stanley Kubrick did this in his films where the bathroom is where the most interesting scenes went down.
2001 – The bathroom instructions
Full Metal Jacket – Leonard snaps and kills Sgt and himself
Shining – Jack meets Grady the caretaker
Clockwork Orange – singing in the tub
Eyes wide shut – Woman that OD’ed was moved into the bathroom.
I could listen to Tarantino talk about his films for hours, he’s so entertaining to listen to, especially when he’s revealing some of the thought that went into each scene.
That is Elvis Mitchell he is talking to. If you love movies check out his podcast. He not only talks to guys like Tarantino, Nolan, and Paul Thomas Anderson on the regular, but he always makes great observations like this food clip. That entire interview can be found [here](http://www.kcrw.com/etc/programs/tt)
I love it when movies have food and eating in them. Kubrick also had great eating scenes: the astronauts traveling on the moon eating chicken salad sandwiches with coffee; Alex eating spaghetti and drugged wine; Alex being hand-fed by the Minister; Jack Nicholson eating bacon and eggs and downing ghost-scotch with great gusto.
Now gentlemen, if you care to join me in the parlor. We will be serving hhhhhhwhite cake
The biggest craving I’ve ever had from a movie were those god-damned Butter-beer’s from Harry Potter. They sound like magic in a glass…
Thanks so much for this OP, you’re awesome.
I’M SO HUNGRY.
This was just fantastic OP. I want to see more of this kind of post in /r/movies.
I’ve always loved the food scenes, especially the cream in Inglorious Bastards. Ever since I’ve seen it in theaters I’ve wanted some strudel and cream.
Goddamnit, now I’m really hungry and I want to watch a Tarantino movie.
EDIT: I’ve had some pies and I’m watching *Death Proof*. It’s alright.
I never made the connection that the characters in qt’s films actually eat their food. I always hate watching actors wave around a slice of pizza for the whole scene without eating it. qt is da man
Everyone loves a dish of [Quentin Tortellini](http://youtu.be/80dNM9AOXGo)
The suspense aspect of many of the conversations in Tarantino’s films adheres to Hitchcock’s idea of “the bomb under the table”, where the suspense rises from the audience’s knowledge of something still hidden from one or more of the characters in the scene.
The one in the beginning of Inglorious Basterds takes this even further by having both the characters pretty much know about “the bomb under the table” but unwilling to show their hands and making it just a cruel prolongued game of cat and mouse before the inevitable.
I left the theater after seeing Django craving that delicious beer from the tavern scene. It was so awesome to hear him talk about that. He wanted me to go have that beer.
You have no idea how bad I wanted Jack Rabbit Slims to be a real place I could go to after that movie came out. Alas, it was a set 🙁
I like how the very last image is the cigarette stubbed out in a piece of pie – that shit speaks volumes.
Didn’t realize the first time around how much sweets Calvin Candie ate throughout Django Unchained. One would think it would be really obvious, but somehow it escaped me.
Another amusing observation is that Dr. Schultz is/was a dentist and the main antagonist has a terrible set of rotting teeth. It’s another nice touch that makes me appreciate the movie even more.
Recipe for a Big Kahuna burger. And yes, it is one tasty burger. Don’t be afraid of the sauce. (There are many recipes out there, but I think this one is the best. Especially good with Tiki decor in summer. It is stupendous with Mai-Tais as the “frosty beverage”.)
2lbs hamburger (20% fat is most flavorful.)
4 tbs Teriyaki marinade (La Choy is best)
6-8 pineapple slices
6-8 slices of provolone
1 pkg large buns (King’s Hawaiian hamburger buns are rare in much of the US, but ordinary buns are fine.)
lettuce, sliced purple onion, tomato, sliced jalapeno, peperoncini or
banana pepper. Some use Monterrey Jack or Swiss, but avoid Cheddar just this once.
Big Kahuna Secret Sauce: equal parts ketchup and brown sugar, plus
1 tbsp Dijon mustard. Simmer all ingredients untill sugar is melted and fully blended.
Marinate hamburger for at least 20min. BBQ flame grill both burgers and pineapple slices then melt cheese over burger before serving.
Never in my life have I wanted a crustless bologna and cheese sandwich more than after Kill Bill 2.
Anyone ever notice that Brad Pitt is a great eater? I think the best example is Ocean’s Eleven. That guy just makes food look good.
