This final note today. An item that kinda makes you shake your head a bit.
Quentin Tarantino, as you might know, has a new movie out: “Django Unchained,” about slavery and rebellion and revenge. Not a theme that you’d think would easily lend itself to gimmicky marketing tactics.
Or would it? You can now buy — should you so choose — poseable eight-inch action figures of the main characters. Slaves, masters, the whole thing.
