Amputation in movies: The Four Rooms (1995)

Quentin Tarantino is one of my favourite directors.
He uses so much all-american imagery in his movies and twists it in his very own, unmistakable fashion. Zippo, an American icon, is a full-time actor in most Tarantino films, with The Four Rooms being the zenith of the lighter’s stardom.

Treat small hand burns, reduce pain without medication and heal faster

When I was a kid, we used to like burning camp fires a lot. Fire is magnificent. Gathering wood in the forest, setting up the fire, gathering even more wood to keep it burning, and finally sitting around it mesmerised by the flames… there’s something fascinating about it. That’s what our prehistoric ancestors did. That’s what helped them live longer, survive the Ice Age and eventually evolve in what we are now.
Beautiful fire

This is a dream sequence for people who have injured or lost fingers, limbs or organs:The Fifthe Element
The Fifth Element was released in 1997 and the CGI looks dated now, but the costumes by Jean Paul Gaultier are still too haute couture for everyday wear. Anyway, the concept behind this scene is fascinating.
