Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino previously claimed that he wants to retire once he has completed his 10th film and it appears the director’s plan still stands, for the most part. Last year he released his eighth film, The Hateful Eight, which means we have just two offerings left, although he’s not ruling out the idea of making more later in life.

Quentin TarantinoQuentin Tarantino has been discussing his plans to only make 10 movies.

Speaking at the Jerusalem Film Festival on Tuesday (July 12), Tarantino said: “I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more. Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10.”

Leonardo DiCaprio may have made most of the headlines with his first Oscar win after five nominations for Best Actor, but perhaps just as significant was the triumph of Ennio Morricone, the legendary soundtrack composer who won his first statuette at the age of 87.

The Italian maestro has notched up more than 500 movie credits throughout his lengthy career, but finally struck gold on Sunday night as he collected the Oscar for Best Original Score to add to the Golden Globe he picked up for the same work he did for Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight.

The Hateful Eight Review

Good

Quentin Tarantino is a filmmaker who simply can't be ignored, especially when he lobs a three-hour wide-screen epic whodunit Western into the cinema. This strikingly entertaining film is packed with his trademark plot twists and dialogue that snaps and crackles in every direction imaginable. So even though it's mainly set in a single room, it's never boring. But with no discernible point, it also leaves the audience rather cold.

In the snowy Rockies of southern Wyoming, cavalry officer turned bounty hunter Warren (Samuel L. Jackson) hitches a ride on a stagecoach with shifty gunslinger John (Kurt Russell), who is escorting feisty outlaw Daisy (Jennifer Jason Leigh) to collect the reward on her head and see her hanged. They also pick up lost new sheriff Chris (Walton Goggins) before an intense blizzard forces them to take shelter at a mountain lodge run by the suspicious Bob (Demian Bichir). Inside, hangman Oswaldo (Tim Roth), war veteran Sandy (Bruce Dern) and their mysterious friend Joe (Michael Madsen) are also waiting out the storm. And as these eight people circle around each other, it's clear that each of them wants the others dead.

No, there's not a single trustworthy person in this story, and Tarantino has a great time revealing the inner murkiness within each one. This gives the actors plenty of texture to work with, as they deliver their lines with knowing innuendo, razor-sharp wit and glowering loathing. The set-up feels somewhat belaboured, but the film's second half is a cracking Agatha Christie-style mystery as we wait for the first shot to be fired. With its single setting, it feels like a particularly nasty stage play, livened up by Tarantino's wordy writing, which drops in big issues like racism and sexism without ever quite grappling with them. And there's of course also a steady stream of vicious violence, including an extended flashback featuring Channing Tatum.

In The Hateful Eight, Kurt Russell plays bounty hunter John Ruth, who captures fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who’s wanted dead or alive for murder.

To Russell, being chained to another person seemed easy when he read the script, until filming began. “That was rough,” Russell said of the experience. “That was different when I read it, I didn’t think anything of it. I though OK we’re chained together.”

"Whatever they say they are, you can't trust that. Who they even think they are, or present themselves to be, you can't trust that.

Elmore Leonard's 'Jackie Brown,' Revisiting Tarantino's True Classic


Quentin Tarantino

The widely acclaimed crime novelist Elmore Leonard died at his home on Tuesday (August 20, 2013) of complications from a stroke. His novels include the Edgar Award-winning La Brava, Out of Sight and numerous stories turned into big screen movies Get Shorty and Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown

The latter tale, adapted from Leonard's Rum Punch, appeared perfect for Tarantino in his post-Pulp Fiction era, and he cleverly cast Pam Grier - the star of Coffy and Foxy Brown - in the lead role.

It's supporting cast including Robert De Niro, Samuel L Jackson, Bridget Fonda and Michael Keaton, though Grier and Robert Foster were the real treats.

Burgeoning star Kerry Washington has well and truly proved she’s a top celebrity by getting married in secret. Only the most famous celebs have to get married in secret, you see.

She tied the knot with sports star Nnamdi Asomugha in the ceremony. And so secret was, no one even really knew the pair were dating, let alone getting ready to get married! Of course, there’s no official word from them, but People magazine say the parents are their main source. ABC News confirmed the whole shebang, providing everyone with a handy marriage certificate just in case anyone didn’t believe it. The actress’s parents Earl and Valerie Washington signed the document as witnesses to the nuptials while Chisaraokwu Asomugha was listed as the minister. Washington’s star has really risen since her role in Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, in which she played Django’s long lost wife.

Her show Scandal is one of the most thrilling shows on TV at the moment, and the critics have lauded praise over her. Last year She told Elle: "I’m the luckiest broad in Hollywood now... To be the lead actor on Scandal and to be in the highest-earning [Quentin] Tarantino movie [Django Unchained] - I don’t get to ask for more. I was not that girl [growing up].

British director Stephen Fears headed the jury in 2007, when he and his team chose Romanian movie 4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days as the Palme d'Or winner ahead of the Coen's No Country For Old Men, David Fincher's Zodiac, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly and Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof. "They were very anti-American, the jury. But I kept saying that American films are watched all over the world. This cut no ice with a few bolshy women on the jury," Frears told the BBC ahead of the Festival this week, "I don't know, you try and behave sensibly. I hear all those stories about people manipulating things, but there didn't seem to be any of that. There were no orders from above - nobody tried to interfere, but there were a few basic rules which you had to follow," he added.

Sitting in a darkened room and watching the very best movies of the year before anyone else sounds pretty fantastic right? "...you're terrified of is going to sleep," said Frears, "...so I had coffee brought to me to stay awake - it was manageable. I didn't write notes but I had a friend with me and she and I would discuss the film afterwards." On whether he still recognised that he had chosen the best movie in competition, Frears was unequivocal, saying, "Oh yes, it was a wonderful, original film. I'm sure it benefitted from winning, it was a very accessible film. I'm sure if you spoke to distributors, I'm sure they would say Michael Haneke's film [2012 Palme d'Or and Oscar-winner] Amour has done really well."

Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained Suddenly Cancelled Due To ‘Technical Reasons’


Quentin Tarantino

With China emerging as the largest international market for Hollywood cinema, Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained had a huge stance to boost its worldwide box office gross, before it was suddenly cancelled.

"We got the notice from our headquarters around 10:00 a.m. this morning but it was too late to cancel two viewings," said an official at one of several Shanghai theatres contacted. “We were only told that it was due to some technology problems and were told to cancel it. They didn't tell us when the film would be shown again." The Chinese government censors all movies before they can be released, and by their standards, Django would take some serious work. Nudity, politically contentious content and extreme violence are things they look for. And we’re guessing Tarantino’s slave revenge film was called up on all three, even though he thought he’d made the necessary changes. Some reports even suggest the film started playing before they pulled the plug, with some Chinese bloggers writing up the situation on their personal sites.

Will Smith In Django Unchained, Near Miss Or Missed Opportunity?


Will Smith Quentin Tarantino

Will Smith has finally opened up on his Django Unchained role that never was, saying he refused to play the character of Django as he wasn’t the lead in the film. But was this a blessing in disguise?

He initially said "I was in the middle of Men in Black 3 and [Tarantino] was ready to go, and I just couldn't sit with him and get through the issues, so I didn't want to hold him up." But now Smith has revealed the real reason, his ego! “Django wasn’t the lead, so it was like, I need to be the lead. The other character was the lead!” he tells Entertainment Weekly. “I was like, ‘No, Quentin, please, I need to kill the bad guy!’” And while many people will be putting their tongue behing their bottom gum and making this noise: “uuuuhh”, he’s actually right. Django may have been marketed as the lead character, but Christoph Waltz as Dr. King Schultz was considered by many film fanatics to be the genuine lead, despite the fact he won Best Supporting actor at the Oscars. Smith loved the film though. He said, “I thought it was brilliant. Just not for me.”

Seth MacFarlane Finds His Audience With MTV Movie Awards Nomination Domination


Seth Macfarlane Quentin Tarantino

There was always a sneaking suspicion that Seth Macfarlane as Oscars host wouldn't go down well. His cheeky (smarmy) grin and risky (lewd) jokes aren't exactly in-sync with the Academy’s ethos. It was the ‘We Saw Your Boobs’ song that really brought it home.

But with seven nominations at this years MTV Movie Awards – matched only by Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained – MacFarlane seems to have found his true audience. Ted, like Django is up for Movie of the Year and Best Fight amongst others, and is expected to pick up a few awards come April 14th. Ted star Mila Kunis – who recently made everyone love her by just talking to someone about normal things - is up for Best Female Performance alongside Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook actress Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway in Les Miserables, Emma Watson in The Perks of Being A Wallflower and Australian comedian Rebel Wilson, who will host the show. Watson said of being nominated: "I am so excited to have been nominated for three MTV Movie Awards for Perks of Being a Wallflower! I love the show and I love this movie! I'm so thrilled."

Djesus Uncrossed – Christoph Waltz Stars In Django Unchained Spoof As The Son Of God


Christoph Waltz Quentin Tarantino

Not content with satirising Nazis or the slave trade, Christoph Waltz has applied his incredible on-screen charisma to a couple of fantastic Saturday Night Live spoofs.

The first (our favourite) sees Bafta-winning Waltz star as Djesus in ‘Djesus Uncrossed’ – a tale of redemption as Jesus (that guy from best-selling book, The Bible) goes on a killing spree having released himself from his cave of doom. The spoof vid features plenty of references to Django, like, “The H is silent,” but also hails back to Tarantino’s other historical movie, Inglorious Bastards, as Brad Pitt’s character gets a makeover.

Did Samuel L Jackson Drop F-Bomb On Saturday Night Live? (Video)


Samuel L Jackson Quentin Tarantino Kenan Thompson

Well, the answer is yes and no, really. Django Unchained star Samuel L Jackson appeared on the comedy show this past weekend to promote Quentin Tarantino's latest movie, but things nearly went oh so wrong.

Pretending to be annoyed at being interrupted during the mock talk show 'What's Up With That?', Jackson half uttered an F-bomb, before stopping himself. Playing the host of the game, comedian Kenan Thompson looked startled, cracked a smile and said, "C'mon, Sam. That costs money!" to the delight of the live studio audience. Moments after the show had aired, Jackson attempted to explain himself on Twitter "I only said FUH," he insisted, before tweeting a photograph of himself looking mortified. Cursing on the comedy show is a rarity, with Jenny Slate being the last cast member to swear nearly four years ago. On that occasion she accidentally said f*cking instead of freaking. Hopefully Sam won't be repeating the stunt when he appears on the Today Show on Monday (December 17, 2012). Now that would be embarrassing. 

His new movie Django Unchained hits theaters in the U.S. this weekend, and still boasts a perfect 100% score on review aggregating site Rotten Tomatoes.

Newtown Shooting Reaction: Jamie Foxx, Quentin Tarantino On Violence And The Film Industry


Jamie Foxx Quentin Tarantino Kerry Washington

Well, it was about time. The school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut that occurred on Friday and, as the nation mourns the victims, the debates about violence in the media are just beginning.

The latest person to comment on this is actor Jamie Foxx, who, a bit ironically, stars in Django UnchainedQuentin Tarantino’s upcoming flick about slavery, which will feature quite a lot of explicit and violent scenes. While promoting the film on Saturday, the star braved the difficult topic, saying that Hollywood can no longer ignore the fact that on-screen violence influences people on some level.

"We cannot turn our back and say that violence in films or anything that we do doesn't have a sort of influence. It does," Fox said in an interview. Meanwhile, director Quentin Tarantino, who is known for his extremely violent and gory scenes, which are all part of his signature style, is once again struggling to defend his artistic freedom. Tarantino went on a bit of a tangent, explaining that he was tired of defending his films each time the nation was shocked by gun violence. He stated that “tragedies happen” and that blame should fall on those guilty of the crimes.

Silver Linings Playbook Could Provide An Injection Of Humour To The Oscars


Bradley Cooper Jennifer Lawrence Quentin Tarantino

With The Golden Globes nominees being announced, and the Screen Actors Guild ones just a few days before, if you were refusing to believe this was awards season, then you better believe we're smack bang in the middle of it.

Silver Linings Playbook represents one of the more lighthearted Oscar hopefuls, despite the fact it deals with subjects like bi-polar disorder and death. Sombre topics indeed, but the film is very much marketed as a romantic comedy, with a specific brand of 'funny'. 

Four Golden Globe nominations for best comedy or musical, actor and actress nominations for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, and a Best Screenplay one increase Oscar hype for the film, and considering films like Lincoln, Life of Pi and The Master are in contention, Silver Linings might be the light dose of comedic relief needed.

Golden Globe Awards Nominees Announced! - The Full List Here


Daniel Day Lewis Steven Spielberg Quentin Tarantino Ben Affleck Leonardo Dicaprio

The Golden Globes have just announced their nominees for their forthcoming awards shows. Alongside the recently announced Screen Actors Guild and Critics Choice Awards, the Globes are generally believed to be a good indicator as to whose going to fare well at the all-important Oscar Awards next year.

In keeping with those other recent nominations, Lincoln is once again leading the way with seven nomination, including a best actor nod for its star Daniel Day-Lewis. Surely the Oscar is already his. A lot of other usual suspects also feature heavily, including Django Unchained, Argo, Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables. Rust And Bone will be disappointed to miss out on the best picture category, whilst Richard Gere makes a perhaps surprise appearance in the best actor category. 

We'll just get down to it and give you the full list, as reported by Yahoo.

Tom Hanks And Will Smith Team Up At Governor's Awards 2012


Tom Hanks Will Smith Jeffrey Katzenberg Quentin Tarantino Hal Needham

It's been a relatively quiet year for both Tom Hanks and Will Smith, though both teamed up for the Governor's Awards 2012 on Saturday evening (December 1, 2012). Producers of the show had enlisted the Hollywood giants to present DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg with the first Oscar of awards' season.

Katzenberg received an honorary award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science for his humanitarian work. Smith introduced the revered producer, while Hanks gave fitting speech about the CEO's generosity and his fundraising efforts after the 9/11 attacks. "Jeffrey Katzenberg doesn't have to do any of these things. But Jeffrey Katzenberg cannot help but to do all of these things - it is in his DNA. Jeffrey Katzenberg is a brilliant man, a hardworking man, a visionary and one of the most powerful men (in Hollywood)." Joking about his time spent with Katzenberg, Hanks added, "It's not just the invitation to breakfast. It's the lunch that lasts exactly 47 minutes. It's the follow-up phone call. It's the tour of the facility. It's the follow-up phone call. It's the letter to remind you of the phone call and the tour of the facility. And finally, it's the contribution you make."

Elsewhere at the ceremony, Quentin Tarantino gave a speech for stuntman Hal Needham, who revolutionized the stunt business by appearing in 310 feature films. "He is the man," said the Django Unchained director, "Before he became a director, he pushed the boundaries of what could be done.I have ripped off many shots from you. Today, I say thank you very much."

Leonardo DiCaprio And Erin Heatherton Break Up After 10 Months Together


Leonardo Dicaprio Erin Heatherton Quentin Tarantino Blake Lively Gisele Bundchen

Leonardo Dicaprio and Erin Heatherton have called time on their relationship after ten-months together.

Leo and Victoria's Secret model Erin are said to have decided on an amicable split and just decided that the time was right to move on, a source told US Weekly. The unidentified source said, "They split a few weeks ago. There's no bad blood -- they still care about each other a lot. It was just time to move on."

DiCaprio, who will next be seen in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, and Erin were first rumoured to be dating when they were spotted sight-seeing in Sydney, Australia, whilst the actor was filming The Great Gatsby in December 2011. As the months went on, the prospect that 'this might be the one' for Leo looked all the more likely, however now it seems that another one has been thrown in the pile and DiCapro, 37, will be returning to bachelor life.

Denzel Washington Set For Oscar Success With ‘Flight’?


Denzel Washington Robert Zemeckis John Gatins Bruce Greenwood Daniel Day Lewis Joaquin Phoenix Bradley Cooper John Hawkes Ben Affleck Jamie Foxx Quentin Tarantino

Denzel Washington’s latest film, Flight, has garnered much praise already – and for all the right reasons too – with Washington already tipped for Oscar glory for his staring role.

The film itself, directed by Robert Zemeckis and written by John Gatins, tells the story of an airline pilot who saves a flight from crashing, however the post-flight investigation into the plane’s malfunctions reveals some worrying revelations. Washington stars as said pilot, Whip Whitaker, who on top of being a veteran of his trade is also a serious alcoholic. The film also stars Bruce Greenwood as the character Charlie Anderson.

Whilst still a newcomer to the box office, critics look as though they can’t get enough of Washington and his performance, and betting sites have already placed the double-Oscar winner among the top contenders to achieve Oscar glory at next years ceremony.

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Review


Very Good
There's a zing of postmodern fun to be had while watching a film that documents itself being made. And while it's a clever look at the secret world of product placement, you never quite feel like the movie itself really gets up to speed.

In order to make a documentary about the shady world of brand integration in films and television, Spurlock decides to sell his new project to the highest bidders. And discovers that there's a parallel world of public relations, advertising, product specialists and neuro-marketers who make a lot of money doing this. After a slow start, sponsors climb on board, and Spurlock makes sure to keep their products on-screen as he conducts interviews with experts.

But does this compromise his journalistic or artistic integrity?

Grindhouse Review


Excellent
Longtime buddies Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez have worked together before (Four Rooms, Sin City), but this takes it to the next level. Grindhouse is their shared B-movie fantasy: a three-hour, bare-knuckled double feature epic, an unapologetic celebration of '70s-era hardcore schlock that's authentic, witty beyond expectation, and unerringly crowd-pleasing.

In a recent TV interview, Tarantino said he and Rodriguez had always wished those low-budget flicks were as good as their posters -- and they set out to achieve that, decades after the movies' heyday. With an obvious passion for the genre, the pair has recreated the experience of being at some cheap Texas drive-in with two features, fake coming attractions, missing reels, local ads, and announcements from theater management. Even if you don't catch on to everything, just watching the package is a complete thrill.

The Cutting Edge: The Magic Of Movie Editing Review


Very Good
While "magic" may be a little strong, The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is a surprisingly interesting film. If you're a filmmaker or an aspiring critic, it may well be essential viewing.

This documentary is precisely what it's title purports to be, an in-depth and instructive look at movie editing that literally spans 100 years of film history, from The Great Train Robbery to Cold Mountain. Through interviews with a copious number of directors and editors, The Cutting Edge covers everything from basic editing techniques like the matching of cuts to modern editing theory as inspired by MTV and The Matrix. The film goes into extreme detail in parts, like when we get to see James Cameron's trick of removing one frame per second out of Terminator 2 to give it more momentum and realism. It's all a little bit insidery and self-congratulatory, but the movie works far more often than not. Any film buff will find it hard not to like.

Kill Bill: Volume 1 Review


Weak

In the wake of "Reservoir Dogs," "Pulp Fiction" and "Jackie Brown," film buffs have come to expect intrepid sub-Hollywood scavenger Quentin Tarantino to bowl us over with ingenious, amped-up, style-blending B-movie off-shoots made with a quantum leap of depth and cinematic panache.

Influenced by cut-rate, under-the-counter samurai imports, spaghetti Westerns and popcorn-munching exploitation flicks of bygone eras, the writer-director's two-part revenge saga "Kill Bill" ("Volume 2" is due in February) has sexy, gritty, droll, deluxe Tarantino élan coming out its ears -- and absurdly grisly dam-bursts of stage blood spurting from other violently severed body parts in ambitious marathon swordfight scenes. But while the picture oozes style (and blood), it comes up short on substance -- which is what has always set Tarantino's grindhouse homages head and shoulders above the pulp pictures that inform them.

Choreographed by both kung-fu genius Yuen Wo-Ping ("The Matrix" movies, "Charlie's Angels," "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," etc.) and Japanese Kenjutsu legend Sonny Chiba (who plays an eccentric master sword-maker in the film), these focal-point fights are the culmination of a plot about a sultry, strong-willed former assassin (Uma Thurman) who was left for dead when her employer -- possibly peeved by her resignation, although "Volume 1" is vague on that point -- turned her wedding into a massacre.
