Few directors can be said to have changed the way films are made, but Mike Nichols, who died Wednesday at 83, was one of them. His first film, "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" (1966), ended decades of Hollywood censorship of adult content and freed the movies for mature language and subject matter ever after. His second film, "The Graduate," was the first serious mainstream movie to feature a rock soundtrack (spawning Simon and Garfunkel's hit "Mrs. Robinson") and, through its casting of Dustin Hoffman, expanded Hollywood's notion of what a leading man ought to look and sound like.
Nichols wasn't born in America (he and his family escaped from Nazi Germany when he was a child), but he was one of the best chroniclers of contemporary America -- its politics, its aspirations, its dreams, its aristocracy, and its successes and failures -- in movies. His youth in Manhattan as the son »

Gavin Logan with five reasons why Quentin Tarantino shouldn’t retire…
Quentin Tarantino has recently hinted that he is thinking about retiring from making movies once he hits movie number ten. While I don’t truly believe a word of it, the thought of not having another Tarantino movie every couple of years make me want to cut off my own ear and repeatedly scream scripture into it. If it is indeed true (I applaud his noble reasons behind the retirement talk) then nobody has the right to tell him otherwise. However at the risk of sounding extremely selfish and because I thoroughly enjoy every one of his movies, the industry needs Quentin Tarantino and here’s 5 reasons why.
Whether you like or dislike the man or his movies, the one thing you can’t argue with is the respect he has garnered from actors, writers, directors and everybody »

Earlier in the week, it was reported that Universal Pictures wanted Fast & Furious director Justin Lin to return for a multi-part finale that would end the lucrative franchise. Most assumed this would be a two-part adventure, and that The Fast and the Furious would wrap up with 9 films. Now, Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley is claiming that the franchise might come to an end with ten movies, as three more sequels are being planned. Though, it may not end there.
"We think there's at least three more...I think it's still a growing franchise. We'll see what happens with Furious 7, obviously, but our box office has grown over the past three or four films and internationally, in particular. So we think that there's more to mine there. But we're »
As he embarks on his eighth film as writer/director (nine, if you count Kill Bill as two separate movies), Quentin Tarantino has been chatting about his plans for retiring from films. Tarantino is set to start shooting his new western, The Hateful Eight, in the next month or two. The cast for the movie was locked down last week, with Channing Tatum and Jennifer Jason Leigh joining Tarantino returnees Samuel L Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim, Roth, Michael Madsen and more.
In a talk at the American Film Market, however, Tarantino said that "I've got two more to go after this. I like that I will leave a ten film filmography", he said, adding that "it's not etched in stone, but that is the plan".
Tarantino, currently 51, called directing movies "a young »
I guess it is true. All good things must come to an end some day and it seems like that day is coming soon for Quentin Tarantino and the fans of his movies.
“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off…I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more,” the director said during an American Film Market panel. “I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard.”

A couple of years ago, Quentin Tarantino suggested that he’d hang up his directing gloves after reaching ten films, stating that he didn’t want his filmography to suffer as he became an “old-man filmmaker”. Well, he’s now reiterated those thoughts during a Q&A at the American Film Market, where he was promoting his upcoming western The Hateful Eight.
“I don’t believe you should stay onstage until people are begging you to get off,” said Tarantino (via Deadline). “I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie. I’m not trying to ridicule anyone who thinks differently, but I want to go out while I’m still hard. … I like that I will leave a 10-film filmography, »

Quentin Tarantino says he'll be retiring after his tenth film, which means one more film after "The Hateful Eight," his Western now officially starring Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Demian Bechir and Walton Goggins.

I do think directing is a young man’s game, and I like the idea of an umbilical cord connection from my first to my last movie.

The end is near, at least for Quentin Tarantino. The director fuelled the flames of his retirement plan this week by announcing that he’s got his sights set on retirement after his tenth film. We’re not quite ready to bid adieu to the director as he wanders off into the sunset to enjoy his golden years because he still owes us some more movies.
The 51-year-old is currently working on his eighth film, the appropriately titled The Hateful Eight. You may have heard of the title when a script leak earlier in the year led to Tarantino shelving the project and opening up a lawsuit against Gawker, the website which published the leaked script. Not wanting to give up on a good story, Tarantino decided to give his Hateful Eight a chance with the Weinstein Company announcing the film’s cast last week.
