“All you need for a movie is a gun and a girl.”
Quentin Tarantino took Jean-Luc Godard’s quote to heart, populating his blood-splattered films with some of the most iconic female characters in the last twenty-five years. There’s almost always a female lead or, at the very least, a villain.
Quentin's next movie, The Hateful Eight, isn't any different. Early press for the film has raved about Jennifer Jason Leigh and her performance as Daisy Domergue.

There aren’t many directors like Quentin Tarantino. He burst onto the scene in the 1990s with a pair of unprecedented features, carried on through into the 2000s with bold and visually impressive films that looked to build upon his fanboy cinephilia, and is now making the sort of grand, American epics (in the proper sense of that word) you’d expect of a director of this talent approaching his mid-50s.

Kodak has unveiled a prototype of a new Super 8 camera as part of the company’s efforts to revive the 50-year old film format.
On display at CES in Las Vegas this week, the camera (pictured) “combines the classic features of a Super 8 with digital functionality,” Kodak said.
The camera unveiling is the first stage of Kodak’s ‘Super 8 Revival Initiative’ which Eastman Kodak chief executive Jeff Clarke described as “an ecosystem for film” that will include the launch of more cameras, film development services and post production tools.
The original Kodak Super 8 camera was introduced in 1965.
