How to spot an undercover agent (according to the movies)

2 September 2015 7:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

To salute the release of American Ultra, we hunt down the subtle ways to spot an undercover agent on the big screen...

American Ultra - out in UK cinemas tomorrow - sees Jesse Eisenberg play a strung-out, stoner slacker, who as it happens is also a deep cover agent trained to be a lethal killing machine by the Us government. And when he’s marked for extermination, he stops getting high, and starts kicking ass and taking names.

From character pieces about the nature of identity to ludicrous third act reveals, the idea of someone going deep undercover has been a go-to trope in films for a very long time. But what if you are worried that someone around you could secretly be a deep cover agent? If so, here are some tips from the movies to spot if someone isn’t quite on the level.

Rabid Dogs review [FrightFest 2015]: “A sinister and fast paced affair”

1 September 2015 11:34 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rabid Dogs review: Offers a polished sheen to the gritty grime of the original. Rabid Dogs review

Director: Eric Hannezo

Cast: Francois Arnaud, Franck Gastambide, Guillaume Gouix, Lambert Wilson, Virginie Ledoyen

Certificate: Tbd

Running Time: 90 Minutes

Synopsis: After a bungled heist, a group of theives take a woman, a man, and his daughter hostage.

In 1974 Mario Bava’s film Rabid Dogs was derailed after the production company behind it went bankrupt. It wasn’t released for over 20 years, and even then was unfinished and had to have new scenes shot by Lambeto Bava, Mario’s son. It’s still a very celebrated film, but now we have a French remake to that Italian lost & found classic, which is every bit as nasty and pessimistic as its predecessor.

Starting with a bungled heist, we’re immediately hit with a Heat inspired shoot-out of high intensity and nail biting uncertainty. It’s »

Jules Dassin Classic “Rififi” To Premiere In New Dcp Version At Laemmle's Royal In L.A., September 4

30 August 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

Rialto Pictures will beloved French heist film Rififi by director Jules Dassin, for the first time on Dcp, at Los Angeles' Laemmle Royal, for one week beginning Friday, September 4.

Jules Dassin (1911 - 2008) began his filmmaking career in the early 1940s and is known for his hits Brute Force (1947), The Naked City (1948), and Thieves' Highway (1949). His career later took a hit when he was blacklisted for Communist activities during the McCarthy Era. Dassin's move to France helped revive his career and was the setting for the hit film Rififi that set his career in motion once again. After the film's successful French release, Dassin was awarded the directing prize at Cannes which allowed Rififi to be released in the U.S. where it enjoyed a successful art house run. Rififi is renowned for being one of the early 'heist' films and served as an inspiration for later films in the genre. »

Quentin Tarantino: The Complete Syllabus of His Influences and References

28 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Quentin Tarantino is undoubtedly one of the (if not the) most influential American film directors of the last quarter-century. His gritty, ultraviolent, fast-paced, and impeccably hip writing style and visual eye have made a mark on both underground and mainstream film like no other. Following the one-two punch of 1992's Reservoir Dogs and 1994's Pulp Fiction, Hollywood was (and arguably still is) flooded with style-aping films that could be referred to as Tarantino-esque. Indie filmmakers of all stripes have surely benefited from the increased exposure that his quick ascension gave to subterranean cinema.The weird thing about Tarantino's influence, though, is that it is derived from his own pop-cultural cherry-picking: Every film he's directed or written has been loaded with countless homages, lifts, and references to books, movies, TV shows, and music that coalesce into a pop-cultural galaxy of their own. When these references and influences are considered as a whole, »

Why Samuel L. Jackson Blew His Reservoir Dogs Audition

26 August 2015 3:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It.s hard to believe there was a time that Samuel L. Jackson was not a movie screen mainstay, or that there was a time when Quentin Tarantino didn.t just give the guy whatever role he wanted. It.s true though. Jackson once read for a part in Reservoir Dogs though he did not get the part. Why not? It was that motherfucker Tarantino.s fault. Speaking with Vulture, Jackson (who uses the expletive lovingly in reference to his dear friend Quentin Tarantino) opens up about the audition that did not go well at all. After making a splash with Spike Lee.s Jungle Fever, Jackson went in to read for a part in a new film for an unknown screenwriter. He thought he would be reading with Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel. Instead, he did his reading with a couple of guys who didn.t know the lines »

The Unfortunate Mistake That Actually Helped Samuel L. Jackson's Pulp Fiction Audition

25 August 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's hard to believe Samuel L. Jackson having to audition for anything these days, but if you were to travel back a couple decades you'd catch the man who would be Nick Fury reading like the best of them at a cattle call. Twice in those days of Jackson's early climb to fame, he'd run across Quentin Tarantino and audition for him. While Samuel L. Jackson missed out on that first part (in a "little" movie called Reservoir Dogs), he nailed his second audition which was for a part in Pulp Fiction. And we all have Laurence Fishburne to thank for it, as a mix up in the casting department fueled Jackson's rage-filled reading. While Vulture interviewed Samuel L. Jackson in connection with his work in Quentin Tarantino's latest film The Hateful Eight, the subject of the auditions he had for Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction was discussed. While »

Quentin Tarantino Misses the Point About Hollywood Blockbusters

25 August 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Read More: Tarantino Opens Up About 'Hateful Eight,' Disses Cate Blanchett and 'True Detective' In the pantheon of contemporary American filmmakers who do what they want, no personality looms larger than Quentin Tarantino, as the filmmaker himself gladly reminds anyone who asks. Like his movies, Tarantino speaks in lengthy paragraphs filled with vivid observations about the state of popular culture and his role within it. But his assessments of the industry tend to reflect the insular world of filmmaking that he has inhabited from the start. In a meaty interview this week with Vulture's Lane Brown, the master stylist takes a break from his upcoming minimalist western "The Hateful Eight" to share his thoughts on a wide variety of topics, from his capacity to produce compelling work more than two decades after his initial success with "Reservoir Dogs" and "Pulp Fiction" to his adoration of Barack Obama. Though typically self-assured, »

Samuel L. Jackson, Tarantino’s Leading Man

25 August 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Samuel L. Jackson remembers the exact moment he met Quentin Tarantino, because, well, it’s hard to forget the motherfucker who screwed up your audition for Reservoir Dogs. That was 24 years ago, and Jackson still calls Tarantino a motherfucker, though now “it’s the endearing motherfucker, not the curse motherfucker,” he says, as in their common greeting, “What the fuck, motherfucker!”Jackson tells the tale of their first encounter with the kind of affectionate shit-talking born of deep friendship; they’ve just finished their sixth movie together (The Hateful Eight, out December 25). It was 1991, the year Jackson, a theater veteran just getting into movies, won Best Supporting Actor at Cannes for Jungle Fever. He’d shown up to casting for this unknown screenwriter’s first feature having memorized a scene he thought he’d be playing with Tim Roth and Harvey Keitel. Instead, he got stuck reading with two bozos he’d never seen before, »

Quentin Tarantıno on White Supremacy, Obama, and Why He Doesn’t Worry About a Transformers Future

23 August 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

We’re five months from the release of The Hateful Eight. How close to finishing are you? We’ve got a little bit more than an hour finished right now. I just got back from seeing an hour of the movie cut together. Are you happy with it? I’m not committing suicide yet. It is what it is. We’re rushing and trying to get to the end. Then you go through it and try to make it even better. But first, you just get to the end. Every movie I’ve ever done, there has always been some date we were trying to meet, whether it was with Reservoir Dogs, trying to meet the Sundance date, or Pulp Fiction, meeting the Cannes date. But we always pull it off. And this way you don’t have that situation where you finish the movie and then the people who »

20 Best Sound On Sight Podcast Episodes

23 August 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »

The Wolfpack review – camera-ready subjects of a revelatory documentary

23 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Raised in seclusion from the real world – but not from the world of movies – the six Angulo brothers make engaging fodder for this fascinating study

Director Crystal Moselle first met the long-haired Angulo brothers in Reservoir Dogs drag (shades and suits) as they enjoyed a rare outing on the streets of New York. Raised in seclusion by their dominating Peruvian father, Oscar, the boys had been home-schooled and sheltered from the world – one year, they didn’t leave their Lower East Side apartment at all. Instead, they learned about life through watching and restaging popular movies (The Dark Knight proves a transformative text), honing the performance skills which make them such camera-ready subjects for this revelatory yet admirably unsensationalist documentary.

A Dozen Summers review – pre-teen angst it's hard to care about

20 August 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Twelve-year-old twins lead a film crew through their lives, in a project directed and written by their real-life dad. There are some insights but the execution is excruciatingly amateurish

In Leicester, 12-year-old twin girls (Scarlet and Hero Hall) pressgang a passing film crew into making a movie about their lives. Although they are supposedly directing the show and can insert an edit by snapping their fingers, they still face typical adolescent problems such as bullying, embarrassing parents (the girls’ father is played by their real-life father Kenton Hall, who takes the writing and directing credits here), and unrequited love for cute boys who don’t notice them. How do you give a film like this a fair star rating? Some of the banter and the fourth-wall-breaking gags are reasonably funny, such as when the kids get “slow-motion sickness” after a Reservoir Dogs-style street saunter with their pals. But the execution is excruciatingly amateurish, »

Six reclusive New York brothers recreated The Dark Knight - and it's incredible

20 August 2015 8:29 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

New documentary The Wolfpack explores the incredible story of the Angulo family, whose seven children found themselves locked away in a Manhattan apartment for 14 years.

Cut away from the outside world, the six brothers escaped through cinema, learning about the world outside through movies and even recreating them on-camera with transcribed scripts and homemade costumes.

As well as Quentin Tarantino films Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, the Angulos were huge fans of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy.

Watch the clip above to see a Diy batsuit made of cereal boxes and the Angulos' recreation of this iconic Dark Knight scene.

Crystal Moselle is behind the camera for The Wolfpack, which won the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.

You can catch The Wolfpack - complete with Diy Tarantino, The Usual Suspects and Nightmare on Elm Street - in UK cinemas from tomorrow (August 21). »

New Posters For The Hateful Eight Complete Quentin Tarantino’s Dastardly Ensemble

19 August 2015 3:03 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Now that the visually stunning and typically violent first trailer for The Hateful Eight has been released, a batch of new posters for the upcoming western have arrived that complete Quentin Tarantino’s titular and dastardly crew of bounty hunters.

In recent weeks, The Weinstein Company has issued one-sheets featuring the likes of Bruce Dern’s The Confederate, along with Kurt Russell and Jennifer Jason Leigh characters – who are on board to portray The Hangman and The Prisoner, respectively. Today’s new arrivals essentially round out the rest of the villainous ensemble, with Samuel L. Jackson, Walton Goggins, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, and Demian Bichir all getting a piece of the gunslinging action.

Bringing the icy hills of Wyoming to the screen like never before, Tarantino’s ensemble cast is matched only by The Hateful Eight‘s stunning aesthetic. Captured with the 70mm format in mind, »

Vacation review: National Lampoon's Hangovered reboot is funny even if Chevy Chase isn't

19 August 2015 2:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Directors: John Francis Daley, Jonathan M Goldstein; Screenwriters: John Francis Daley, Jonathan M Goldstein; Starring: Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Chevy Chase; Running time: 99 mins; Certificate: 15

As entirely unnecessary reboots go, Vacation isn't half bad. When held up to the ridiculously harsh ratings coming out of the Us for this Chevy Chase vehicle Mot, it seems positively good. But then it's probably worth remembering that the 1983 original wasn't overly well received either. Fart gags, it seems, are never in fashion.

And as you'd expect from a film starring Ed Helms, it's been Hangovered for a new generation by writer/directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan M Goldstein - one in-gag has his kids slyly, but quite understandably, saying they've never heard of the original - with the shit and puke dial turned right up. Yet there are still enough genuine laughs throughout to make it a worthwhile »

The Wolfpack review: “Absorbing, frank and remarkable”

19 August 2015 12:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Woflpack review The Wolfpack review

The Wolfpack tells the true story of a group of children, and their mother, who have been confined to their 16th story apartment in New York’s Lower East Side for 14 years. In their own words, they were not allowed out of that apartment for more than a few closely monitored days each year, and in one particularly year, they didn’t leave it at all. Their father Oscar controlled the only key to the apartment, with their mother home-schooling their children’s education with their life experiences being lived through movies which they would watch and re-enact in their bedrooms.

The Wolfpack hails from acclaim at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it was awarded the U.S. Documentary Grand Jury Prize. Director Crystal Moselle takes us on a journey through the lives of this fascinating family as they start to experience the world first-hand, »

The Wolfpack, film review: Moselle's modern-day folk tale leaves a lot of questions unanswered

13 August 2015 8:45 PM, PDT | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

Moselle's documentary is fascinating and a little perplexing, a modern-day Kasper Hauser-style folk tale about six brothers (and a sister) living in New York who spent almost their entire childhood locked away from society. Their father has a misguided idea about protecting them from the dangers of the outside world and so tries to cocoon them. What doesn't make any sense at all is that the father, desperate to keep them away them from drugs and violence, nonetheless encourages them to watch Reservoir Dogs and The Dark Knight. »
