Kelley Vs. Nakamura: Pop Culture Cornucopia Part Duex!!

In my most recent posting, I compared the approaches of two filmmakers by focusing on their most recent flicks. Edgar Wright’s SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD and Quentin Tarantino’s INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS were examples of cinematic pop culture commentary/homage. I recently caught another two films back to back that are approached with a similar motive in mind. And deal with a comparable conceit: the end of the world. They are not post apocalyptic. They both deal with happenstance and coincidence, intertwining tales that eventually lead up to a defining moment.
