    The Los Angeles Police Protective League has come out in support of a call for a boycott of the “Pulp Fiction” director’s films after he appeared in an anti-police brutality protest organized by RiseUpOctober on Saturday in New York City. “I’m a human being with a conscience,” he said at the time. “If you believe there’s murder going on then you need to rise up and stand up against it. I’m here to say I’m on the side of the murdered.”

    Tarantino’s use of the word “murder” led to a backlash from the New York Benevolent Association. “It’s no surprise that someone who makes a living glorifying crime and violence is a cop-hater, too,” Patrick J. Lynch, the union’s president, said in a statement this past weekend. He went on to call for New Yorkers to avoid buying tickets to Tarantino films.

    “Hateful rhetoric dehumanizes police and encourages attacks on us,” Lally added. “And questioning everything we do threatens public safety by discouraging officers from putting themselves in positions where their legitimate actions could be falsely portrayed as thuggery.”

    Howard says Tarantino is coming on the show in December and he's going to ask him about this. What are the chances that will actually happen? More likely the booking gets cancelled or Howard completely pussies-out (as usual).

    It was just a top story. The NYPD and LAPD boycotting stuff like this actually does have an effect, you saw how the whole country was shitting on Bill de Blasio. So I don't know if this will work.

    Django was just ok but I'll probably see this too

    O' liberal Quentin is just trying to get publicity for another crap movie. I'm sure the police would be the first ones that he called when he's being robbed by local, urban youths. He's a douchebag.

    Reservoir Dawgs and True Romance were good.

    I think they're all pretty good, I just forget what happens in them. But I remember everything in Pulp Fiction and I've only seen it one time.

    As good as pulp fiction was its a movie to see only once. I have no desire to re watch it.

    The Hateful 8 trailer looks really bad. This will probably be the first Tarantino movie I skip.

    Never liked this asshole or his overrated movies. He basically just takes a bunch of different genres and takes the coolest parts of each and makes a movie, and then throws into some "artistic" crap like the shot turning black and white for 3 seconds for no reason in an attempt to seem deep. It's like something a film school student would come up with.

    "ok, dig this: the main characters a black pimp who was trained in the ways of the ninja and has to rescue his best ho from a gang of greaser cowboys. The leader of the Greaser Cowboys has a switchblade comb he keeps in a holster, dig? and in the climax the black pimp uses his enormous penis to reflect it back into his own skull causing brain matter and 30 gallons of blood to spatter over a 1920's style Coca Cola billboard."

    my comment was directed at the cops and Tarantino. No one shoots at cops because of what anyone says. They shoot at cops because they are scum bags and have no respect for life, theirs or anyone else's
