Invoke the word autocorrect and most people will think immediately of its hiccups—the sort of hysterical, impossible errors one finds collected on sites like Damn You Autocorrect. But despite the inadvertent hilarity, the real marvel of our mobile text-correction systems is how astoundingly good they are. It’s not too much of an exaggeration to call autocorrect the overlooked underwriter of our era of mobile prolixity.
Without it, we wouldn’t be able to compose windy love letters from stadium bleachers, write novels on subway commutes, or dash off breakup texts while in line at the post office. Without it, we probably couldn’t even have phones that look anything like the ingots we tickle—the whole notion of touchscreen typing, where our podgy physical fingers are expected to land with precision on tiny virtual keys, is viable only when we have some serious software to tidy up after us. Because we know autocorrect is there as brace and cushion, we’re free to write with increased abandon, at times and in places where writing would otherwise be impossible. Thanks to autocorrect, the gap between whim and word is narrower than it’s ever been, and our world is awash in easily rendered thought.

You know what? Sassy McJean-Shorts is fresh out of the gym rocking a killer smile and looking a helluva lot cuter than that birch pole of a supermodel behind her, so fuck it. She wins all of the style points.

When Brad Pitt’s character, Lt. Aldo Raine, pretends to be an Italian actor near the end of the movie, he uses name “Enzo Girolami”, which is the birth name of the director of original Inglorious Bastards  (The Inglorious Bastards (1978)), Enzo G. Castellari.

In a scene in the movie theater, Eli Roth’s character Sgt. Donny Donowitz uses the alias “Antonio Margheriti”. This alias is named after cult Italian director Antonio Margheriti (director of such films as Cannibal Apocalypse (1980)), one of Roth’s and Quentin Tarantino’s favorite directors.
