Oscars: The Contenders For The Top Spots And Drew's Picks

4 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

The Oscars, or the Academy Awards, are one of my favorite award ceremonies of the year for a few reasons. Primarily, it gives all the filmmakers, actors, actresses, and people behind the camera their chance to shine and to be recognized for all of their hard work, they then get to take home that trophy and have "bragging rights" for the rest of their careers. Additionally, the Oscars can create massive controversy like when Citizen Kane, Goodfellows, or Vertigo were snubbed, or lets just look at 1994 when Forrest Gump beat both The Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction. Even more recently, the 2010 awards where The King's Speech won over Inception, Black Swan, The Social Network, and The Fighter. Have you ever tried watching The King's Speech, and if you have, have you been able to stay awake through the entire movie?

Either way the Oscars are still a fun topic of »

Scientology Didn't Want John Travolta to Do Pulp Fiction

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When Pulp Fiction hit theaters in the fall of 1994, it wasn't only an instant hit, but it kickstarted Samuel L. Jackson's career, while reviving John Travolta's fading career. Both actors earned Oscar nominations for their portrayals of assassins Vic Vega and Jules Winnfield. Today we have new details that reveal John Travolta may have not even taken on the role, had he listened to some advice from a high-ranking member of the Church of Scientology, which he has belonged to for over 40 years.

During the latest episode of A&E's new documentary series Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, the actress hosted a Q&A session with former Scientologist Mike Rinder, who revealed that John Travolta asked him to review Quentin Tarantino's screenplay for Pulp Fiction, before he agreed to take on the role of Vic Vega. If the actor would have listened to his advice, the »

How ‘Patti Cake$’ Director Geremy Jasper Went from Indie Rocker to Breakout Filmmaker — Sundance 2017

23 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Patti Cake$” has lived up to the hype. After its Eccles Theater premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on Monday afternoon, the film scored two huge standing ovations, and another for breakout star Danielle Macdonald.

Patti Cake$ just dropped a hip hop bombshell on the Eccles. This movie could be huge. #sundance pic.twitter.com/Oqf0hcZpMA

— erickohn (@erickohn) January 23, 2017

This moment was a long and winding journey for writer-director Geremy Jasper. To look at him, you would never guess his alter ego would be Patricia Dombroski (aka Patti Cake$, aka Killer P, played by Macdonald), a 23-year-old, heavy-set Jersey girl with dreams of rap stardom. Jasper is tall, extremely easygoing, and has the style of a Williamsburg creative. In his 20s, he was the front man for a popular indie rock band, The Fever, and starred in Benh Zeitlin’s breakout short, “Glory at Sea.”

First Trailer For TV Series ‘Snatch’ Will Bring You Back To The Good Old Days Of Guy Ritchie

17 January 2017 6:45 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At one time, Guy Ritchie’s brand had him leading the post-”Pulp Fiction” wave of directors following in the wake of Quentin Tarantino, with his own distinctly British crime pictures that mixed action and comedy with equal verve. Now he’s just a guy stuck in the blockbuster rut making stuff like “Sherlock Holmes” or this summer’s “King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword.” Yawn.

NYC Weekend Watch: Spielberg, Rohmer, ‘Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence,’ ‘The Keep’ & More

13 January 2017 8:37 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City 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.

Three Spielberg pictures screen this weekend, while Rohmer is highlighted with Pauline at the Beach and Full Moon in Paris on Friday.

Which Hollywood superstars have their own plane?

13 January 2017 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

So you’ve finally made it in the big time and you think to yourself, I now have a private island and yacht, but what else can I buy myself to implement my Hollywood status? Oh I know, I’ll buy myself a private plane. The quality of life is what separates a common man from celebrities and adding a jet to their collection is just an enhancement to their life quality and quite possibly their personality too.  A number of Hollywood superstars own a plane and maybe it’s just to show off that they can buy one and another annoying factor is that they don’t have to deal with any of the stressful parking that us ‘normal’ people have to endure. That said, I can’t promise you that you’ll be a Hollywood superstar anytime soon, but one thing I can promise you, is using sites like this http://www. »

Trainspotting review – Danny Boyle's classic holds up terrifically well

12 January 2017 2:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This supercharged 1996 story of drugs, violence and growing up has lost none of its edge ahead of the release of sequel T2

Prior to the guys’ Take-That-style reunion in the forthcoming sequel T2, here is a very welcome big-screen rerelease of Danny Boyle’s original Trainspotting, 21 years on. It holds up terrifically well. This movie was the first, maybe the only successful 90s British attempt at answering films like Goodfellas or Pulp Fiction; it has a version of their spirit and power – and matches them for hardcore violence, horror and drugs. But John Hodge’s screenplay, taken from the novel by Irvine Welsh, brings in a grittily British kind of social-realist pessimism. Watching it again, especially during the periodic “family” scenes in pubs after court appearances and funerals, I thought of Ken Loach’s Poor Cow.

Trainspotting is supercharged with sulphurous humour and brutal recklessness: it charges at you like »

Quentin Tarantino Movies Ranked Best to Worst

12 January 2017 7:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Quentin Tarantino is many things. Above all of them he is one of America's most important living directors. In a day and age when everything is a prequel, sequel or part of some tentpole, popcorn extravaganza, Tarantino is someone who has created his own tentpole extravaganza from scratch. He has his own genre: Quentin Tarantino movies. That he is able to make them personal and a piece of art in the process, is further testament to just how special this director is.

Apparently, we aren't going to have him around making movies for too much longer. This isn't some hard and fast rule he's putting out there (if the right project comes along he's not going to not do it), he just seems to feel that 10 is a nice round number and it would be a good place to stop. While it might not make much sense to even announce you're quitting, »

14 incredible Polish film posters for Hollywood movies

11 January 2017 2:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 12, 2017

From Pulp Fiction and Crocodile Dundee to Braveheart and Masters Of The Universe: a salute to the Polish film poster.

We’re in an era now where movie marketing tends to be more uniform, and particularly when it comes to a big Hollywood blockbuster, there’s a lot of control exerted over promotional artwork, and how it’s allowed to vary from country to country.

Yet that wasn’t always the case. As and when films were shipped around the world, even as recently as the 1990s, some territories really managed to give otherwise fairly traditional movie posters in particular a particularly notable spin.

Poland got particularly good at this. Thanks to poster designers such as Mieczyslaw Wasilewski, Waldemar Swierzy, Wiktor Gorka, Andrzej Pagowski and Wieslaw Rosocha, latitude was taken to come up with some really wonderfully striking poster visuals.

How to Make the Big Kahuna Burger from Pulp Fiction

6 January 2017 2:32 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Quentin Tarantino is known for a great many things in his movies. You can usually count on quite a bit of violence, some unique way of storytelling and on more than one occasion, a presumably tasty burger. The burger in question first showed up in 1994's Pulp Fiction and came from a chain of restaurants known as Big Kahuna Burger. Now, a fan of Quentin Tarantino's movies has made that fictional burger a reality.

A YouTuber by the name of Andrew Rea recently posted a video to his YouTube channel in which, he actually makes a Big Kahuna Burger. For some reason, he includes a clip of the Frasier theme song in the beginning of the video, but then he does a more logical cutaway to the famous Pulp Fiction scene in which Jules (Samuel L. Jackson) eats the burger and reveals that it is from a "Hawaiian burger joint. »

‘Pulp Fiction’: Watch a Food Blogger Show You How to Make the Perfect Big Kahuna Burger

Anyone who has watched more than one of Quentin Tarantino’s films knows about the Big Kahuna Burger. But, for those who don’t happen to be fans of the filmmaker or simply have not paid enough attention, this is a fictional chain of Hawaiian-themed fast food restaurants that have appeared in at least four of Tarantino’s movies: “Death Proof,” “Four Rooms,” “Pulp Fiction” and “Reservoir Dogs.”

Tarantino also included this fictional burger joint in the script of his 1996’s Robert Rodriguez–directed film “From Dusk Till Dawn”.

Great Job, Internet!: Here’s how to make the Big Kahuna Burger from Pulp Fiction

4 January 2017 11:00 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The Big Kahuna Burger is one of many recurring figures that establish a consistent universe among Quentin Tarantino’s movies, along with the Vega brothers and Red Apple cigarettes. The Hawaiian burger joint pops up in Death Proof, Four Rooms, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs, as well as Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn. It’s the burger that Samuel L. Jackson maliciously takes a huge bite out of while tormenting a chap named Brett early in Pulp Fiction. “This is a tasty burger!” Jackson tells the terrified man. If you would like to make that tasty burger and experience the joy that Jules did, a new video is here to help.

The video sort of cheats, since, by its own admission, the Big Kahuna Burger itself is not exactly inspiring—just some cheese and ketchup. It jazzes it up by smashing the beef against a smoking hot cast-iron »
