I just watched Hostel 1. Tarantino at its best. This micro site makes sense now.

One thing about the movie Hostel I hated was the terrible insight in culture. He portraied people in such a wrong way. The most terrible thing was when he tought EVERYBODY in The Netherlands talk German. I was so aggrevated in that part. To give a whole country a wrong language is unforgivable for such a big moviemaker.

Maybe it was intentional. Just to point out that everything was skewed. I mean Slovakia isn't like it was portrayed either.

My point, he messed it all up. I don't think it was intentional but just very bad research. It is not the first time I heard Americans talk about Dutch people like they were Germans. When you corrected them, the first thing you hear is...whats the diffrence. 75% of the time they think the whole Eastern of Europe talks Russian. I just find it a bit narrowminded. If Tarantino just did his homework about the country's involved, he could make a diffrence about the way the rest of the world thinks of 'the ignorance' of Americans.

Yes I do realise I am acting just in the same way by thinking all Americans make these mistakes. Obviously I do not think this, but I know a lot of people do. So he had the chance of making a little diffrence that way. Sadly he just made it more obvious.

FYI, Quentin Tarantino is not the director of Hostel, Eli Roth directed it.

Great concept and pretty good execution. What I really like about this piece is that it leverages the unexpected.

Most of the web has become so focused on being predictable and immediately obvious that there is a whole side of traditional entertainment that is being lost. If you go back 15 or more years, CD-ROMs were packed with "easter eggs" and video games were all about the special key sequences that would open up new levels and mini-games. These days I feel like the art of surprise has been lost.
