If you're looking for a Bing Crosby
-style Christmas special on Encore -- well, look somewhere else. Actor Michael Madsen
, Kill Bill Vol. 1
) hosts "A Very Quentin Christmas," presenting all five of Quentin Tarantino
's movies shown together for the first time uncut, commercial-free and in letterbox. And that's not eggnog he's drinking either, buster.
Remember back in the day when the family got together to watch Bing, his family and celebrities like Michael Caine
sing Christmas tunes in front of a beautiful tree and a baby grand piano? Wipe those happy memories right out of your head. Madsen dons the hat, but that's where the similarity ends. He regales us with tales of Quentin T, manhandles an elf, and shows us all of Quentin's films. Now that's what I call a Christmas present....ho, ho, friggin' ho.
