Review: Escape From New York's Snake Plissken Sixth-Scale Figure from Sideshow

29 January 2015 8:40 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There may be some young whippersnappers reading GeekTyrant who don’t know who Snake Plissken is. To you I say, get thee to a nunnery. Or really, just Amazon, where you can stream John Carpenter's Escape From New York. Snake Plissken is a badass’ badass. A special forces soldier turned rebel turned turned prisoner turned man on a mission, he always lives by his own conscience, and he is the man who made Kurt Russell a badass. Now, Sideshow Collectibles has immortalized him in a 1/6 Scale Figure. And because I am luckier than you, they sent me one to review.

23 January 2015 10:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a long and twisty road to principal photography on The Hateful EightQuentin Tarantino’s latest foray into the western genre. First Gawker leaked the script, resulting in the filing of a lawsuit and Tarantino’s proclamation that he did not intend to make the film.

Now the day is finally here, as The Weinstein Company announces that the director has begun filming on The Hateful Eight.

The Hateful Eight takes place in post-Civil War Wyoming and follows a group of eight people who get trapped during a blizzard. Taking refuge from the storm at a haberdashery in a mountain pass, the group are soon involved in a plot of betrayal and deception. We can expect plenty of the good old Tarantino dialogue, »
