For some, movies are occasionally too violent, vulgar or plain boring to sit through. Ryan recalls some memorable cinema walk-outs...
For better or worse, there’s nothing quite like watching a movie in the cinema. There’s the sense that you’re all sharing a new experience. The feeling of expectancy when a movie the whole audience has been looking forward to seeing unfolds on the screen. The enjoyment of laughing in unison at a golden comic moment.
On the flip side, there’s the uniquely unpleasant sensation of a person behind you kicking the back of your seat. Or the horrendous human being who can’t resist checking his phone for the duration of a movie, meaning you end up having to ignore an eerie blue glow emanating from the corner of your eye for about 120 minutes.
Memories like these, whether good or bad, are all part of the cinema-going experience, »
It's hard to believe that on this day 20 years ago, Quentin Tarantino unleashed "Pulp Fiction" onto the world.

As Tarantino begins his next film "The Hateful Eight" with the recently cast Jennifer Jason Leigh, and has now taken over programming at the New Beverly theater in Los Angeles, it's high time to revisit his favorite films list, a fitful collection of gore-splattered genre films, westerns and American classics. Below, brush up on your "Pulp Fiction" with a few classic clips. (And you can stream the film on Netflix.) Quentin Tarantino's Top 12 films 1. "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" (1966, dir.

It looks there will be some casting changes after all between the script reading of Quentin Tarantino's latest western The Hateful Eight and the actual film production. When the script was read live at an event at Lacma back in April, it was Amber Tamblyn who read the part of Daisy Domergue, the lead female role, a woman wanted for murder and due to hang for her crimes. She's the prisoner being handled by two bounty hunters and a local sheriff in Wyoming after the civil war. But the group finds themselves stuck in town with four other men as a storm passes outside. But The Wrap reports Jennifer Jason Leigh now has the part. However, we're waiting for the rest of the cast to be confirmed. Samuel L. Jackson and Kurt Russell played the bounty hunters at the script reading in April, and those two have pretty much »

Jackson, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen, who have also been confirmed to star in the movie. The last we heard, Viggo Mortensen was also rumored to be in talks to join the film as a "ruthless gang leader." The movie is scheduled to start shooting in January 2015, and this is what it's about:
The Hateful Eight follows the steadily ratcheting tension that develops after a blizzard diverts a stagecoach from its route, and traps a pitiless and mistrustful group which includes a competing pair of bounty hunters, a renegade Confederate soldier, and a female prisoner in a saloon in the middle of nowhere.

According to THR, Jennifer Jason Leigh has been cast as Daisy Domergue, a.k.a. "The Prisoner,” in Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming Western The Hateful Eight, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, and Michael Madsen. That is, unless someone leaks Tarantino's second draft of the script, too, in which case we’re probably going to have to start this process all over again. »

When the director held the live reading of his screenplay back in April, Amber Tamblyn read the role of Daisy Domergue, a woman who is wanted for murder and set to hang for her crimes. Jennifer Jason Leigh actually attended the live screenplay reading in Los Angeles, sitting next to The Weinstein Company chairmen Harvey Weinstein and Bob Weinstein along with producer Stacey Sher. The role was one of the most coveted for Hollywood actresses in recent months, with Jennifer Jason Leigh beating out other notable performers such as Michelle Williams, Hilary Swank, Robin Wright and Demi Moore.
Quentin Tarantino has cast Jennifer Jason Leigh has the female lead in his upcoming film, The Hateful Eight. The actress is the first official cast member to join the project, as the other names that have been mentioned (Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Walton Goggins) have not yet been confirmed. However, the report does mention that Bruce Dern, another one who was expected to show up, is set for a role in the film.
As for Leigh, she’ll play Daisy Domergue, “a woman wanted for murder who begins the story in the clutches of bounty hunters.” Said bounty hunters will reported by played by Jackson and Madsen, but again, we haven’t heard anything official about their involvement just yet.
In terms of the plot, The Hateful Eight will start off with the three aforementioned characters who, along with the sheriff, take off in »

We can all breathe a sigh of relief that Tarantino has chosen terrific character actress Jennifer Jason Leigh for the female lead in "Hateful Eight." Her classy low-key acting style in mostly present-set films doesn't exactly scream "Tarantino." But there's a reason for that: he's casting against type. It will be great fun to see Leigh take a bite out of the role of a wanted murderess in wintry Civil War-era Wyoming with a $10,000 hit on her head. Daisy takes a lot of abuse in this claustrophobic Western homage while trapped in a blizzard with a surly lot of stagecoach travelers, bounty hunters and a Confederate soldier. From too-cool Mia Wallace in "Pulp Fiction" to the female revenge-seekers in "Kill Bill" and "Inglorious Basterds," Tarantino writes juicy women's roles, and his actresses make meals out of them. At Tarantino's historic Los Angeles live read of the "Hateful" script, Amber Tamblyn read for Daisy, »

So far, info on the cast for Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight has been little more than speculation. While we have a good idea that actors such as Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Walton Goggins will have roles in the film, thanks in part to their participation in the live-read of the […]

With names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Evan Rachel Wood, Geena Davis and Hilary Swank leading the charge when it came to the rumored list of actors lining up to take the lead female role in Quentin Tarantino's next film, The Hateful Eight, it is most likely to come as a surprise to learn that role has gone to none other than Jennifer Jason Leigh. Leigh will take the role of Daisy Domergue, a character portrayed by Amber Tamblyn during Tarantino's live read. While I haven't read the screenplay that began circling the Internet last spring I do know Leigh is older than Tamblyn, which suggests he may have added a few years of wisdom to the character in his rewrites. As for the story, the ensemble Western centers on bounty hunters returning human plunder to a town called Red Rock in exchange for hefty rewards who run into a Southerner on the road. »

The Wrap reports that Leigh will be playing the character of Daisy Domergue, a woman wanted for murder who is due to hang for her crimes. The role was played by Amber Tamblyn during Tarantino's live-read of the script. More after the jump. Leigh marks an unexpected and welcome addition to the Hateful Eight ensemble. The actress has been doing excellent work for years, »
