But Brainiac quickly discovers Earth has a “firewall” – the Justice League. When Brainiac cleverly displaces several members of the Justice League to other time periods in Earth’s history, Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades – while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac’s assault. »

'Taxi Driver': 25 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About Martin Scorsese's Classic

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"You talkin' to me?"

It's the 40th anniversary of "Taxi Driver" (released on February 8, 1976), the movie that gave Robert De Niro his most famous line, put Martin Scorsese on the map, proved that the pre-teen Jodie Foster was an Oscar-worthy thespian, and (most notoriously) was cited by John Hinckley as an inspiration for his assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan.

In honor of the film's anniversary, here are 25 things you need to know about how Travis Bickle came to be.

1. The script, by Paul Schrader (pictured, left), was semi-autobiographical. After a divorce and a break-up with a girlfriend, he wrote the movie while living in his car, feeling suicidal, obsessing about guns and pornography, and having spoken to no one for weeks. As he recalled in 2013, "Taxi Driver" was "an exorcism through art," and it worked.

2. Martin Scorsese saw the script as early as 1972, but didn't yet have the clout to make it, »

The Great Digital Film Festival: Quentin Tarantino's 10 Greatest Female Characters

5 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

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. So get ready for Tarantino’s eighth film with “Bang Bang” byNancy Sinatra and a celebration of the badass babes that have defined Quentin Tarantino’s filmography.

Who is Tarantino’s greatest female character?

 

 

10. Honey Bunny (Amanda Plummer) - Pulp Fiction

Amanda Plummer’s Honey Bunny is a watered down version of the Mallory Knox (Juliette Lewis) in Oliver Stone’s Tarantino-penned crime satire, Natural Born Killers. Honey Bunny isn’t quite »

Read The Epic 148-Tweet 'Spring Breakers' Meets 'Pulp Fiction' Tale That James Franco Is Turning Into 'Zola'

5 February 2016 6:03 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Sometimes, it's all about the pitch, and "Zola" has a pretty good one. In his article for Rolling Stone, "Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted," journalist David Kusher describes the tale spun by Aziah "Zola" Wells as "'Spring Breakers' meets 'Pulp Fiction,' as told by Nicki Minaj." And who wouldn't be interested in that? Certainly not James Franco.

James Franco to direct Twitter tale of stripper Zola's sordid road trip

5 February 2016 5:38 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Drama is based on viral tweets by Aziah ‘Zola’ Wells – which won praise from Ava DuVernay and Missy Elliott – about her brush with a violent pimp

James Franco has signed up to direct a potentially controversial true-life drama based on a wild and unsavoury stripper road trip to Florida that went viral on Twitter.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Franco’s film will be based on the Rolling Stone article Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted, which was published in November. The piece related the story of stripper Aziah “Zola” Wells’ 148-tweet splurge, described as “like Spring Breakers meets Pulp Fiction, as told by Nicki Minaj”, in which she claimed she narrowly avoiding being tricked into prostitution by a fellow stripper and her violent Nigerian pimp.

American Crime Story: What's the Verdict on FX's O.J. Simpson Saga?

2 February 2016 8:14 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

File this under gallows humor: When Marcia Clark first heard the name “O.J. Simpson,” American Crime Story informs us, she had no idea who he was.

And though Clark would go on to prosecute the beloved sports star for two deaths in one of the biggest murder cases in United States history the lawyer at first had to be reminded that he was “the guy in the Hertz commercials.”

Recommended Discs & Deals of the Week: ‘Bridge of Spies,’ ‘Snow White,’ and More

Every week we dive into the cream of the crop when it comes to home releases, including Blu-ray and DVDs, as well as recommended deals of the week. Check out our rundown below and return every Tuesday for the best (or most interesting) films one can take home.

Bridge of Spies (Steven Spielberg)

Tom Hanks has a cold, and he needs to save America. A natural follow-up to Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln in its immersion into nitpicky political discussion, Bridge of Spies also distinguishes itself with a wittier, frequently downright sarcastic screenplay (mostly courtesy, one imagines, of the Coen brothers), more agile camerawork (the ten-minute opening jaunt through Mark Rylance’s Brooklyn morning has been a justified source of attention), and a different kind of lead »

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 »

Review: American Crime Story's O.J. Saga Is a Striking, Suspenseful Look at the 'Trial of the Century'

28 January 2016 1:54 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Four episodes into American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, FX’s dramatized examination of the famous murder case, Faye Resnick’s tell-all about her friendship with murder victim Nicole Brown Simpson hits bookstores.

The hastily slapped-together, tawdry memoir is loaded with tales of drugs, sex and violence; it’s cheap trash made even more offensive by the way it turns the deaths of two people into nothing more than a lurid grab at the worst kind of fame.

Gone to the wall – why modern movie posters are dreadful

28 January 2016 9:26 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

From The Third Man to Pulp Fiction, a good film poster can be as much a work of art as the movie it is selling. So why are so many modern posters drab and uninspiring?

There are a number of unmistakable signs that you’re in a student flat. The smell. The minimal fridge. And the walls plastered with peeling posters of films released years before anyone living in the house was old enough to have seen them at the cinema. If they have seen them at all.

Scarface, Pulp Fiction, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Trainspotting, Chinatown: all instant classics of unique and punchy design, which neither misrepresented nor undersold the movie they were flogging. Once so respected and venerated an artform, the poster has become a functional product; carelessly Photoshopped, cropped and stuffed with explosions until logic, sense and any artistic ambition have been ruthlessly abandoned. In 20 years’ time, »

Five Things You Didn’t Know About the Kill Bill Franchise

21 January 2016 12:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

As someone who loves movies, especially ones made by Quentin Tarantino, I’ve got to say that the Kill Bill films are something special. A mix of classic ’70s kung fu-style action with a thrilling and fun revenge tale, these movies did an excellent job of balancing the more superficial and fun style that they both featured with the more significant and emotional aspects of the story being told. Even though, like most film fanatics, my favorite Tarantino movie will always be Pulp Fiction, both Kill Bills, especially Vol. 1, are right behind it for the top spot on my list.

Apparently, we.ve 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, »
