Movie Picture of the Day 8/7/13

True Romance Slater Arquette theatre

Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette enjoying a movie in one of director Tony Scott’s best films, True Romance (1993).  The film was written by Quentin Tarantino.

It’s amazing how many films have scenes where people are in a movie theatre watching a movie.  You are watching a movie about someone watching a movie.  I don’t mind, but it’s a funny thought.

Sad fact: Tony Scott and 3 big names from this film (Dennis Hopper, James Gandolfini, and Chris Penn) all passed away within the last 7 years.  Hopper was the only one that wasn’t taken before his time.

Happy Birthday to Tim Roth

Reservoir Dogs Roth

Happy Birthday to Tim Roth!  The highly talented actor turns 52 today.

Reservoir Dogs Roth Keitel

What a strange coincidence that Mr. Orange from Reservoir Dogs (1992) was born a day after his co-star Mr. White (Harvey Keitel).  Well, 22 years and one day to be exact.  Another coincidence is that both actors are probably most popular for the same 2 movies, Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Pulp Fiction (1994).  They both played their own part in helping to make Quentin Tarantino famous and in return he helped to boost their careers.

Pulp Fiction Roth

Even though Roth never really reached superstar status, he has still had a pretty successful career.  Besides the 2 films that I mentioned, my other favorite Tim Roth films are

What is your favorite Tim Roth movie?

Note: Random movie connection: Chris Penn played Nice Guy Eddie in Reservoir Dogs and he was also in Deceiver with Tim Roth.  It’s interesting to me how often actors work together in multiple different movies or work with the same directors on different films.
