NYC Weekend Watch: Birkin & Gainsbourg, Michael Mann, Vertov & More

4 February 2016 9:47 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

The second weekend of “Jane and Charlotte Forever” offers two from Varda, a rare Rivette picture, Serge Gainsbourg’s tribute to his daughter, Zeffirelli‘s Jane Eyre, and a Bertrand Tavernier title, among others.

Kansas City Confidential | Blu-ray Review

2 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

After falling into the public domain, Phil Karlson’s 1952 film noir Kansas City Confidential became unfairly lumped into B-grade bracket, a disservice considering the title’s odd narrative and eventual influence on contemporary filmmakers. Karlson, who would eventually turn to mainstream efforts starring the likes of Dean Martin and Elvis Presley in the 1960s and 1970s, contributed several enjoyable minor noir efforts in the 1950s. These would include 1952’s Scandal Sheet with Donna Reed and Broderick Crawford, Kim Novak casino heist effort 5 Against the House, and that same year’s Tight Spot with a peculiar role for Ginger Rogers. But none have enjoyed the staying power of this particular heist drama, now restored with its most accomplished transfer yet.

Kansas City delivery man Joe Rolfe (John Payne) is at the wrong place at the wrong time when he’s nabbed by the cops as the driver of a heist involving »

8 Problems With Reservoir Dogs Nobody Wants To Admit

31 January 2016 3:30 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Miramax Films

There’s no denying that Reservoir Dogs is a hugely important and influential film; after hitting the big time when it was first released back in ’92 by a then-unknown filmmaker by the name of Quentin Tarantino, it paved the way for a new era of independent films and changed Hollywood forever. One critic, Jami Bernard, even compared it to the iconic 1895 picture Arrival of the Mail Train, claiming that “people just weren’t ready for it.”

Filmmakers started making different kinds of motion pictures after Reservoir Dogs came onto the scene; low-budget, auteur-driven flicks began to spring up everywhere, not to mention countless copycat pictures packed with irreverent dialogue, scenes of people talking about nothing, non-linear narratives and sudden moments of unexpected ultra violence – not least of all in Tarantino’s epic follow-up, Pulp Fiction, in 1994.

Often hailed as the “greatest independent film of all-time,” Reservoir Dogs cannot »

Sundance Wrap: Race, Politics and a Pet Wolf

29 January 2016 5:28 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Some editions of the Sundance Film Festival go down in history as “The Year of…,” marking a breakthrough or obvious landmark film. Early on, there was the year of sex, lies and videotape, the year of Reservoir Dogs (even though, incredibly, neither of them won the top prize) or, more recently, the years of Beasts of the Southern Wild and Fruitvale Station. So obviously talented were the filmmakers involved that it was almost as if the other movies entered in those respective years didn’t matter. This is another of those years, one in which The Birth of a Nation

Carnage Park Review [Sundance 2016]

27 January 2016 8:45 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Somewhere between Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes and Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs exists Mickey Keating’s Carnage Park – a primal, maniacal throwback to 1970s post-political backlash. Memories of George Mihalka’s My Bloody Valentine help shape a myriad of influences that drive the director here, as he blends a West Coast criminal escapade with passionate kisses of slasher violence.

Think From Dusk Till Dawn, if you will (yes, another influence), except instead of vampires, you’ve got a patriotic lunatic who can’t accept that the times are indeed a’changing. As echoed in the opening narrative, if you tell people the “American dream” is dead, some folks might get mad – or in this case, retreat to a hellish playground constructed with only innocent deaths in mind.

California plays host to Carnage Park, a sectioned-off abundance of land owned by a military-fatigue wearing madman named Wyatt (Pat Healy). Whenever people break down, »

The 25 most underrated film scores of the 1990s

20 January 2016 5:22 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




The sensational, overlooked film scores from the years 1990 to 1999 that really are well worth digging out...

The movies went through tumultuous and exciting changes in the nineties. Quentin Tarantino exploded onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs, Generation X gave rise to slacker marvels like Clerks, and blockbusters like The Matrix put the awe back into special effects.

However, the 90s was also a sensational decade for film music, gifting us classics including the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic, Total Recall, Braveheart and countless others. But the sheer quality of these soundtrack treasures shouldn’t overshadow those undervalued hidden gems that demonstrate the extraordinary range and versatility of our finest film composers, ones that may have passed you by. So here’s our selection of those incredible works: ranging from the earworming to the unsettling, the melodic to the chaotic, these are the scores that simply demand your attention. »

The Two Pulp Fiction Spinoffs Quentin Tarantino Wanted To Make

19 January 2016 4:28 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Apparently, only got two Quentin Tarantino films left. This means that any news regarding his future films is instantly lapped up, but it also makes news about films that never made it to the big screen is just as interesting too. Tarantino has confirmed as much by announcing two Pulp Fiction spin-offs he wanted to make, and that the world is now a lesser place for being without. While out promoting The Hateful Eight in Australia, Quentin Tarantino admitted to film blog So Is It Any Good? that he has previously been very tempted to make films that paired up brothers Pulp Fiction.s Vincent Vega (John Travolta) with Reservoir Dogs. Vic Vega (Michael Madsen), on their own criminal adventure. But he didn.t stop there though, because he revealed that he also considered a spin-off that revolved around Samuel L Jackson.s Jules, strutting across the globe »

Every Quentin Tarantino Movie Exists In The Same Universe; Director Eyeing 1930s Aussie Crime Drama As Next Project

19 January 2016 10:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

His decorated body of work has long been the subject of intense scrutiny, praise and adulation, whether it’s his genre-mashing Pulp Fiction or, more recently, a barnstorming Civil War thriller in the vein of The Hateful Eight. But do all of Quentin Tarantino‘s movies exist in the same universe? The answer to that question is a resounding yes, according to the director himself.

Speculation that the Tarantino-verse was real first came to light when Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction‘s Vincent Vega shared a surname, only for the filmmaker to confirm later that the pair are actually brothers. But the connections – subtle though they may be – run deeper than that.

When quizzed about the possibility by The Project, Tarantino confirmed that there lies a “realer than real” universe underpinning his film catalog. “So From Dusk Till Dawn, Kill Bill, they all take place in this special movie universe, »

'From Dusk Till Dawn': 10 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Clooney's Cult Hit

18 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"From Dusk Till Dawn" looked like a box office misfire for hot young filmmakers Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez when it was released 20 years ago this week (on January 19, 1996). But like the strip-club vampires who ambush the fugitive Gecko brothers, "Dawn" has proven surprisingly resistant to death.

Despite its modest ticket sales, the bloody film became a cult hit that spawned a theatrically-released making-of documentary ("Full Tilt Boogie"), two straight-to-video sequels, and a horror series on Rodriguez's El Rey cable channel that will soon begin its third season. More important, it gave George Clooney his first big break in movies after his TV success on "ER." It also marked the first full-length collaboration between Tarantino and Rodriguez, and gave Salma Hayek the most iconic scene of her career, as a snake-wielding table dancer/queen of the vampires.

In honor of the film turning 20 years old this week, here are 10 things »

Movie Review: The Hateful Eight

17 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

Quentin Tarantino can do whatever he wants. At this point in his career, twenty-two years removed from the pop-culture milestone Pulp Fiction (1994), the lowbrow aficionado has dabbled in everything from Kung Fu (Kill Bill, Vol. 1 & 2 [2003/04]) and Blaxploitation (Jackie Brown [1997]) to world war (Inglorious Basterds [2009]) and revisionist westerns (Django Unchained [2012]). Each crucially dependent on their assigned genres, but unmistakably stamped by an artist who loves to screw with the status quo. No other filmmaker can channel the sophistication of Jean-Luc Godard and the violence of John Woo through the veil of a 1970s exploitation flick – much less attempt to in a coherent state of mind. But this is where the Oscar nominated Tarantino resides full time: right on the edge of cinematic sanity.

Proudly marketed as the director’s eighth film, The Hateful Eight is another high-tension affair; punctuated by a script you could bounce a bullet off of. Racial slurs, »

BFI Review – Pulp Fiction (1994)

17 January 2016 8:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pulp Fiction, 1994.

Directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth and Rosanna Arquette.


Three stories play out in expert fashion in La, with drugs, money and guns all at play in Quentin Tarantino’s incredible second film.

It truly is a testament to Pulp Fiction how it remains a timeless joy to watch on every viewing, over twenty years after it’s 1994 release. That definitive shot of Travolta and Jackson, two guns raised, is the iconic image Banksy decided to parody, replacing guns with bananas. The soundtrack, stuffed with songs eternally attached to Tarantino’s second film, include the standout ‘Pulp Fiction’ track, Miserlou. “Royale with cheese”, “Ezekial 25:7”, “Zed’s Dead Baby, Zed’s Dead” – endlessly quotable lines, reinforcing how poetic and punchy Tarantino’s writing can be. It’s laid back sloucher’s, donning dressing gowns and »

10 Actors That Quentin Tarantino Brought Back From The Grave

15 January 2016 7:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Aside from being a great and individual filmmaker, Quentin Tarantino also has a knack for reintroducing forgotten actors to the world. Working with up-and-coming talent can be his forte, too (he gave Michael Fassbender something of a mainstream break with Inglourious Basterds, while Tim Roth got a boost from Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction), but no one utilizes underrated and under-used actors like Qt.

It’s something he’s done his entire career, from his first film (Dogs) to his last (The Hateful Eight). Each Tarantino movie has its merits, and each one invariably finds Tarantino bringing an actor – figuratively, of course – back from the grave.

All of the following were considered box office duds when Tarantino gave them prominent billing in one (or more) of his films. Given the opportunity, all of them gave career-defining performances for the director.

So, join us as we take a look at ten »

The Hateful Eight review – hard to hate but tough to love

10 January 2016 1:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Tarantino’s latest is a wild west Reservoir Dogs, full of his usual exuberant violence but lacking the element of surprise

“You’re starting to see pictures, ain’t ya?” Quentin Tarantino’s latest is a typically talkative quasi-western set in the still-unresolved aftermath of the Us civil war. Photographed in super-wide Ultra Panavision 70, and released in standard “multiplex” format and extended 70mm “roadshow” versions, it’s everything you’d expect from this exasperatingly unruly writer-director: cinematically adventurous, generically self-conscious, entertainingly performed, editorially ill-disciplined.

Chief among its pleasures is Robert Richardson’s superbly choreographed cinematography, which masterfully captures both the landscape poetry of the American interior west, and the chamber-piece stagings of the western interiors – a cabin, a barn, a stagecoach – in which much of the action plays out. There are rambunctiously hairy turns from the grizzled male ensemble, while Jennifer Jason Leigh’s black-eyed antiheroine proves more than a match for any man. »

The Hateful Eight review: “Solid bloody stuff from Tarantino”

9 January 2016 3:08 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Hateful Eight review: Tarantino delivers a slower-paced western that is more Reservoir Dogs than Django Unchained. Samuel L. Jackson // The Hateful Eight review

The Hateful Eight review by Paul Heath, January 2016.

The Hateful Eight is Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth film, a fact made quite clear even in the opening credits of his new western opus. It follows Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill (Vols 1 and 2), Death Proof, Inglourious Basterds, and Django Unchained to the screen in both a 70mm Panavision (roadshow) format, and your regular digital version, the format from which we are reviewing it.

The set-up is relatively simple. A bounty hunter named John “The Hangman” Ruth (Kurt Russell) is transporting his prisoner (Jennifer Jason Leigh) across country to be executed in the town of Red Rock. Along the way they encounter another bounty hunter (Samuel L. Jackson), and a wandering man (Walton Goggins) who claims »

Here's Why You Never Fall Asleep on a Quentin Tarantino Set

8 January 2016 5:18 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Quentin Tarantino is a director unlike any other, and it certainly shows when you go see one of his movies. His latest, the revenge Western The Hateful Eight, is currently playing nationwide, after a successful roadshow release. Longtime Qt collaborator Tim Roth recently appeared on NBC's late-night talk show Late Night with Seth Meyers, where he revealed the two things that no one working on a Quentin Tarantino movie is allowed to do on set: fall asleep, and bring your cell phone to work. Here's what the actor had to say about the first rule, and what will happen if this rule is broken.

"There are two things you're not allowed to do. One is fall asleep on set, and the other is bring a cell phone on. If you fall asleep on set, the camera crew are ready for you. They've got Big Jerry in a bag. Big Jerry »

The Hateful Eight | A War | Partisan | Bolshoi Babylon | Sanam Teri Kasam

There are epic, snowy vistas to admire, but at heart this is a one-room, almost three-hour chamber piece. It’s a storytelling test for any film-maker, one that Tarantino passes with flying colours (mostly red). As the title suggests, there are no discernible good guys – or gals – here; only eight vividly rendered shades of bad. They’re a gallery of old west archetypes: bounty hunters, civil war veterans, lawmen, “cowpunchers” and, almost stealing the show, Leigh’s demented murderer. Holed up together in an isolated cabin by a blizzard with a mystery to thrash out, they engage in a delectable game of lies, threats, interrogations, reveals, reverses and, of course, eloquent, Tarantino-spun yarns. It’s like some unholy fusion of Agatha Christie, Bonanza and Reservoir Dogs, with the escalating distrust and plentiful weaponry leading inevitably to a violent climax. »
