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 »

It always makes me sad when Quentin Tarantino talks about retirement. He is a filmmaker who changed my life, and I never want him to stop making films. Reservoir Dogs is why I am in film school. Now, I do not want to make films like his, but he grabbed my attention by showing me different ways stories could be told. Well, at the American Film Market, he asserted once again after his tenth film, he will be retiring from directing. His next film, The Hateful Eight, is his eighth, so that does not leave us all with a lot of time. I would not be surprised if he changes his mind, but if he doesn't, it will be a sad day for everyone. Speaking of The Hateful Eight, which is being shopped around at Afm for foreign distribution, he hopes the film will cause a halt in the digital takeover, »

Quentin Tarantino burst onto the movie scene twenty years ago with Reservoir Dogs and was followed up by the multi-stranded non linear plotted Pulp Fiction. The films saw him cemented instantly onto the list of best directors ever, with follow up movies Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds and the Kill Bill series further proving his worth. Tarantino fanatics though may want to start bracing themselves as it seems that the outspoken visionary is planning his retirement. Whilst speaking sat a Q and A panel for his latest project The Hateful Eight he remarked that he’d quite like to fill his time “writing plays and books, going gracefully into [his] tender years.” He followed this up saying:
“I don’t believe you should stay on-stage until people are begging you to get off. I like the idea of leaving them wanting a bit more. I do think directing is a young man’s game, »

Quentin Tarantino has been giving American audiences a jolt with his collision of homage, over-the-top violence, and mesmerizing monologues since he burst on to the scene in 1992 with Reservoir Dogs. But enjoy it while you can. The writer-director behind such exhilarating cinema as Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds is already talking retirement. The American Film Market is spewing out all kinds of news, announcing J.D. Salinger biopics and revealing a movie poster for a John Cusack/Jackie Chan movie that has us flabbergasted. Then there's Quentin Tarantino's retirement. According to Deadline, Tarantino's soon-to-shoot The Hateful Eight will be one of his last three films. In promoting Hateful Eight to foreign distributors, Tarantino trotted out castmembers like Walton Goggins, Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh. It was the last of these who tipped the retirement talk, saying she was grateful to get a chance to »
Jinga’s Julian Richards commented: “Ab Negative combines classic British gangster tropes with an intricate plot more typical of American crime thrillers. It may look like another Lock Stock but it has more in common with Reservoir Dogs and The Usual Suspects.”

20 years ago last month, “Pulp Fiction” hit theaters and became an instant cult classic. Quentin Tarantino’s second turn as a feature director—the film followed “Reservoir Dogs”—'Pulp' was also a critical success, garnering the helmer an Academy Award for Best Screenplay (along with Roger Avary). Part of the Miramax Oscar campaign, though strong enough to stand on its own laurels, the film also received nominations for Best Leading Actor (John Travolta), Supporting Actor (Samuel L. Jackson), Director, Actress in a Supporting Role (Uma Thurman), Editing, and Best Picture. 14 years after “Pulp Fiction” made its debut, the cast and crew reunited onstage on April 28, 2008 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater as part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ “Great To Be Nominated” series. To be fair, it’s more of a crew reunion than a cast one. Of the remarkable helping of A-listers who appeared in the film, »

After months of speculation, the full cast line-up for Quentin Tarantino’s next pic, The Hateful Eight, has officially been announced. Following Deadline’s breaking news this morning, which suggested Channing Tatum was circling a part in the western, The Weinstein Company delivered a press release to verify the rumours.

I'm still trying to stay relatively in the dark about The Hateful Eight, Quentin Tarantino's western that had a script leak and a major reading. I saw the teaser that was just some shiny After Effects and liked it, I heard goo things from people more engaged in the project than I and liked it. I know the film will be shooting in Telluride Colorado and "presented in 70mm" and I like those things too.

While I understand exactly why his first impulse was to walk away from "The Hateful Eight" when the script initially leaked in January, I am glad that Quentin Tarantino reconsidered. I was there on April 19th when Tarantino staged the script as a live read, using the draft that leaked, and I thought it was a fascinating evening. That draft essentially ended like "Reservoir Dogs," and it seemed anti-climactic after the careful way the rest of the script builds. Then again, this was always meant to be a first draft, and I've got to assume that the ending was always going to be the thing that Tarantino focused on getting right. In general, I think he's demonstrated a knack for knowing exactly how a film should end. We've heard that Tarantino is forcing anyone interested in investing in the film during Afm to drive to the Beverly Hills offices of »

Some 201 films from 60 countries make the 25th edition of Stockholm Film Festival the biggest so far. Unspooling through Nov. 16, the festival is honoring Uma Thurman, Mike Leigh and recent Golden Lion winner Roy Andersson.
The Stockholm Film Festival turns a quarter of a century by looking back on the early years. When the festival was first held in 1992, “Reservoir Dogs” won the Bronze Horse, fest’s prize for best film. Only two years later Quentin Tarantino was back at Stockholm, winning another Bronze Horse for “Pulp Fiction.”
Tarantino has repeatedly expressed his delight for the festival. And to celebrate the 25th festival, the director’s muse Thurman will receive the festival’s achievement award.
“We’ve had her in mind for some years. By inviting her to the 25th edition, we also connect to our past in a nice way,” says festival director Git Scheyinus.

Maybe the most interesting thing about Hit by Lightning is that the only two women with speaking roles have separate, faintly unplaceable European accents. Unfortunately, they never share a scene. Through an Internet dating service, Ricky Miller (Jon Cryer), a middle-aged human cringe who manages a chain restaurant, meets Danita (Stephanie Szostak), the embodiment of a moronic, misogynist stereotype — "You're, like, Maxim-hot and you don't even know it," says Ricky. She can actually cite Steve Buscemi films Reservoir Dogs and Fargo, which is supposedly remarkable, making her the dream girlfriend of frat dudes from 1996 and also probably Kevin Smith and definitely Ricky. "Put on Espn and text me when you hear the hockey scores," she tells him, a »
While we await the release of his adaptation of J.G. Ballard’s High-Rise, British filmmaker Ben Wheatley has announced details of his next film – and his first set in the U.S. – Free Fire, which will star Luke Evans (Dracula Untold), Armie Hammer (The Lone Ranger), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) and Olivia Wilde (Her), along with Wheatley regular Michael Smiley (Kill List).
“The idea for Free Fire came from my love of hard-boiled crime movies; from The Asphalt Jungle, The Big Sleep, The Killing and The Big Combo through The Driver, Le Samourai and The French Connection, to the modern cycle of Goodfellas, Casino, Hard Boiled and Reservoir Dogs,” said Wheatley. “Free Fire will take you and stick you in the middle of the action. I want the film to have the stylish, no-nonsense feel that you get in Peckinpah’s The Getaway. It’s a modern ‘70s movie. Muscular, »

The story is set in 1978 Boston, following a woman named Justine (Olivia Wilde) who has set up a meeting between two Irishmen (Cillian Murphy and Michael Smiley) and a gang lead by Luke Evans and Armie Hammer for an arms deal. When shots are fired before the deal is made, the meeting turns into a deadly game of survival.
Here's what director Ben Wheatley had to say about Free Fire in a statement.
"The idea for Free Fire came from my love of hard-boiled crime movies; from The Asphalt Jungle, The Big Sleep, The Killing and 'The Big Combo' through The Driver, Le Samourai and The French Connection, to the modern cycle of Goodfellas, Goodfellas, Hard Boiled and Reservoir Dogs. »
