This week: Quentin Tarantino's eighth film, the Oscar-winning "Django Unchained," starring Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio and Samuel L. Jackson, finds emancipation on DVD and Blu-ray after a celebrated run at the box office.
Also new this week is the pitch-black comedy "Small Apartments," the Southern ghost story "The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia" and the Criterion Collection Blu-ray debut of "Repo Man." Get More »
Here's something you probably didn't expect to find on your favorite movie site today: SCIENCE! (With a cinematic twist, of course.)
Scientists have recently discovered three new species of the "Cystomastacoides" genus of wasps. According to sci-news, the Cystomastacoides wasps are known for their deadly reproductive habits — basically, they put still-developing eggs inside other insects until the eggs slowly render their hosts either sterile or dead. Pretty gross, actually. But compared to the level of gore in Quentin Tarantino's movies... Get More »
There are times when you kind of just have to tip your cap to the internet and give it a hearty round of applause. Or — better yet — a thumbs up. If you're feeling generous, like the Johns Rambo and McClane, maybe even a double thumbs up.
We're thankful for the internet today because of the photoshopping skills of the creator of Thumbs & Ammo, a website solely devoted to taking movie photo stills and photoshopping a thumbs up in place of a gun, as our brothers from another mother at Screenrant discovered this morning. That's it. Yes, that's the entire website. Sounds simple, right? That's because it is, and it's amazing. Get More »
It's a fact of life for an actor/writer/director after doing a movie: Just before the film debuts, you meet with the press and answer questions like, "What was it like to work with Matthew Modine?" and "Before playing a mime, did you meet with any mimes to prepare?" It's a part of the biz, so to speak, and the process is generally unremarkable.
Except when it isn't. Whether the interview becomes awkward, hilarious, charming or weird, it also always becomes magical, as we saw when the Internet exploded this week over Mila Kunis's playful flirtation with a quirky British chap. Get More »
Hey guys, remember that hilarious batch of fake Quentin Tarantino posters we made up a couple weeks ago, highlighting all the historical revenge fantasies we wish Tarantino would film? Well, it looks like someone at "Saturday Night Live" must have been paying attention, because last night they actually filmed one of our ideas.
But even we couldn't have guessed at how damn funny "Djesus Uncrossed" would be.
Of course, we called our version "Biblical Proportions," but it's basically the same thing: Christoph Waltz plays a resurrected Jesus who sets out on a bloody rampage of revenge, aided by the greatest posse ever assembled.
Check it out, courtesy of NBC.com. And don't worry, "SNL," you're more than welcome to swipe our ideas any time you like.
Hey, have you ever noticed that there are a ton of people killed in every Quentin Tarantino movie? You have? Us, too. It would be interesting if someone took the time to sit through every one of his films and not only count the number of dead people, but tell us how they all died. If a cool graphic was made about it, all the better. Get More »
You've got to hand it to Quentin Tarantino: The guy sure knows how to dispense some righteous justice. First he retroactively avenged the Holocaust with his history-warping "Inglorious Basterds" and then he put the smack down on slavery with his juicy pre-Civil War revenge fantasy "Django Unchained." There's just nothing quite so satisfying as seeing some of history's greatest injustices fixed through two hours of big screen slaughter.
And now we'll get one more; speaking to reporters at Sunday night's BAFTA winners press conference, Tarantino said, "This [rewritten history theme] begs a trilogy, it begs to have a third movie on this theme. I haven't decided about what yet, but I wouldn't be surprised."
Humanity has done so many horrific things over the past few millennia that there's literally no end to the number of revenge fantasies Tarantino could make. With that in mind, then, we dreamed up posters for some of the most egregious wrongs in history that are crying out for the Tarantino treatment. Get More »
"Django Uncahined" is one of the most controversial films of the year for one simple reason: Any movie about slavery is, by default, one of the most controversial films of the year. Because, you know, slavery.
But any time there is controversy, that means there's also a great opportunity for comedy. And now the folks at Tomm Fondle have have put together their own response to "Django Unchained," which spoofs not the film itself, but rather society's reaction to the film.
So check it out. Because while some things are worth feeling guilty about, but you should never feel guilty about having a good laugh.
In the 19 years since "Pulp Fiction" hit theaters, the film that made Quentin Tarantino a superstar has become a bona fide cinematic classic. Hell, it was a classic from the moment it first screened at the Cannes Film Festival. But as a new oral history of the film in Vanity Fair shows, "Pulp Fiction" was almost a very different film.
Forget Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis and John Travolta. How about "Pulp Fiction" starring Paul Calderon, Matt Dillon and Daniel Day-Lewis? Get More »
The controversy over Quentin Tarantino's slave revenge fantasy "Django Unchained" shows no signs of letting up, as former 2 Live Crew frontman Luther Campbell has just written a scathing denunciation of Spike Lee over Lee's scathing denunciation of Tarantino.
And the auteur behind the insightful thinkpiece "Me So Horny" has a message for lee: Me so angry. Get More »
