Mash-ups have become extremely common these days -- seems like every day someone is posting or sending me a link to a new one, often involving trailers and allegedly side-splitting. The mash-up I saw today, however, grabbed me and took me for a wild ride through the films of Quentin Tarantino and Joel and Ethan Coen. If you've got seven minutes to spare, I've embedded the "Tarantino vs. Coen Brothers" video after the jump for you to enjoy. And if you like these directors, you'll enjoy it.
What do these two filmmaking teams have in common, anyway? Brad Pitt may not be the only actor who was in films directed by Tarantino and the Coens (Inglourious Basterds and Burn After Reading); Steve Buscemi shares that credit too. But Leandro Copperfield, who assembled this video, found a lot of similarities: explosions, meltdowns, impromptu dances ... and gunfire. Lots and lots of gunfire. I don't need to tell you this isn't a kids' movie.
