Samuel L. Jackson Reveals the Similarities Between Quentin Tarantino and Tim Burton’s Directing Styles

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Samuel L. Jackson has worked with almost everyone at this point in his career. He most recently added Tim Burton to that list with “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” an adaptation of the young-adult novel by Ransom Riggs. The actor’s unexpected takeaway from the experience is that the “Beetlejuice,” “Edward Scissorhands” and “Ed Wood” director is “very Quentin [Tarantino]-like” in his approach to filmmaking.

“It’s incumbent on you to come in there as precise and as sure as you want to do as [he is],” Jackson eleborated during the “Miss Peregrine” premiere on Monday night. “But still he expects you to come and create something that’s as unique and visual as what he’s doing.” The actor has worked with Tarantino a number of times, »

Tim Burton gave Samuel L. Jackson a gift he may or may not use to decorate his home

Now we know what kind of present to expect from Tim Burton if we ever score a part in a movie by the visionary director. Burton gave Samuel L. Jackson, who’s in his upcoming adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, quite the personalized gift when the two went out to lunch, as Jackson chronicled on Instagram:   Got an Awesome Gift from Tim Burton at lunch today A photo posted by Samuel L Jackson (@samuelljackson) on Sep 27, 2016 at 10:51am Pdt   The throw pillow featuring the Pulp Fiction actor’s head Photoshopped onto the body of a Napoleon invasion-era Russian general, is part of a set that also includes General Bill Murray, General Nicolas Cage, and General Tom Selleck. »

Dekalog (Krzysztof Kieślowski)

Despite passing away at the all-too-young age of 54, Krzysztof Kieślowski invoked a sense of humanity that even today’s greatest directors might need a lifetime to achieve. What would be his defining masterwork (if he didn’t make a number of films that could also easily fall under the definition), the 10-part Dekalog, has been restored thanks to Janus Films and is now available on The Criterion Collection after touring the country. Also including interviews with those involved and more, »

Ray Donovan Season 4 Episodes 11 & 12 Review – ‘Chinese Algebra’ & ‘Rattus Rattus’

26 September 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Mark Clark reviews the eleventh and twelfth episodes of Ray Donovan season 4…

Well, that’s it, episodes 11 and 12 are done, season 4 is over, and it’s been a marked upgrade on season 3. With its smarts, viciousness, and dark humour, I may even go as far as putting it at the top of the season pile. As for Ray and the gang, it’s been a case of small victories amidst the sucker punches, flying bullets, old wounds, new nemeses, the occasional body dumping, and Mickey almost turning every disaster into a crisis. Pretty much business as usual then.

‘Chinese Algebra’

After Abby’s recollection of Ray’s never gonna be happier moment in episode 10, and watching the opener of episode 11 as cops swarm all over the dam at Lake Hollywood and the abandoned car, and Marisol’s body, I couldn’t help asking who is responsible for, well, everything. Ever. »

‘My Best Friend’s Birthday’: Watch Quentin Tarantino’s First Film — or What’s Left of It

25 September 2016 1:58 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone knows “Reservoir Dogs” is Quentin Tarantino’s first movie. What “My Best Friend’s Birthday” presupposes is…maybe it isn’t? Made in 1987 but now mostly lost due to the ravages of time (and, more accurately, a film-lab fire), the once-70-minute film can now only be seen in its incomplete, 36-minute form. Watch what remains of it below.

Tarantino co-wrote, co-produced, directed, edited and starred in “My Best Friend’s Birthday,” which concerns a man (Tarantino) trying — and repeatedly failing — to pleasantly surprise a buddy on his birthday. He made the black-and-white comedy while working at Video Archives in Manhattan Beach, California. Roger Avary, who later went on to co-write “Pulp Fiction,” is one of four credited cinematographers.

The Revelations Of Raising Cain Recut

24 September 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

When Brian De Palma’s Raising Cain bowed in American theaters during the summer of 1992, it was anticipated by fans of the director as a welcome return to the sort of formalist genre contraption he hadn’t indulged in since the creative blow-out (forgive me) of Body Double eight years earlier. However, when the lights came up, even within the ranks of the De Palma faithful there was polarization. A handful defended it as one of the director’s masterpieces, while a greater number seemed to consider it at best middle-tier De Palma, a fully committed attempt to deal with typical De Palma-esque narrative elasticity and thematic concerns such as time, chronology and dream logic, all in the context of an examination of the morphing perimeters of American masculinity and parental responsibility which somehow, in the end, seemed as out of balance as its psychically fractured protagonist. Meanwhile, the »

As ‘Blair Witch’ Flops, Is the Found-Footage Horror Film Over?

18 September 2016 2:46 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Now that “Blair Witch,” the abysmal shaky-cam horror sequel that no one was waiting for, has come and bombed, you might be tempted to say that a certain genre is ready to lay down and die. But you’d be wrong. In the megaplex, of course, the found-footage horror film enjoyed a quick rise, a brief reign, and (now) a spectacular fall. It was launched, in 1999, with “The Blair Witch Project,” which in addition to being a highly original and — yes — unsettling movie became a fascinating phenomenon in two ways. First off, its success was beyond staggering, and not just because its $140 million domestic gross gave it the greatest budget-to-profit ratio of any movie ever made. Budget aside, “The Blair Witch Project” put more butts in seats than “Pulp Fiction” did. Clearly, that had something to do with the dread and intrigue generated by the uniquely austere thriller up onscreen, »

Oliver Stone Reveals ‘Natural Born Killer’ Secrets, From Working with Tarantino’s Script to Bob Dole’s Angry Reaction

16 September 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 1994, Warner Bros. released Oliver Stone’s film “Natural Born Killers,” about two lovers (Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis) who embark on a murder spree and are subsequently glorified by the media. Though critically acclaimed, the film immediately garnered much controversy for its violent content, later inspiring copycat murders, and later inciting a denouncement by Presidential candidate Bob Dole.

"A Tear in the Ocean": The Final Days of Alexis Arquette

They were gathered around a hospital bed in Cedars-Sinai, the famous brothers and sisters of Alexis Arquette, who lay before them in a medically induced coma. Alexis — who had been born Robert Arquette and had been straddling genders for much of her post-adolescent life — had been battling health problems related to her positive HIV status for years. A Hollywood nightlife fixture and charismatic performer who stole scenes in films like Last Exit to Brooklyn, Of Mice and Men, Pulp Fiction, and, perhaps most memorably, The Wedding Singer, Arquette had contracted the virus over two decades ago, when

De Palma (Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow)

Earlier this year, Kent Jones’ Hitchcock /Truffaut — a documentary on the famous interview sessions between the two directors — boasted perhaps the most chaotic, dignity-threatening queue of any film screened at Cannes. There is a craving for this sort of thing among cinephiles it seems and it’s easy to see why. Directors just seem to open up much more when speaking to one of their own kind. Brian De Palma, the subject of this fine documentary, »

‘La La Land’ review [Tiff ’16]

12 September 2016 3:47 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

La La Land review: Damien Chazelle follows up the beat-perfect Whiplash with a film that somehow manages to out-play its predecessor.

La La Land review by Paul Heath, Tiff ’16.

La La Land review

La La Land is the film with all of the hype. I haven’t read or heard a bad thing said about it.The buzz is so good on this one that it is the film to beat at the Venice, Toronto and London Film Festivals this year.

The film follows two characters, Ryan Gosling‘s struggling jazz pianist and Emma Stone‘s equally hard up aspiring actress in modern-day Los Angeles. Both are on their own paths of discovery; Gosling’s Sebastian working a dead-end musical job playing Jingle Bells in a seedy bar in downtown L.A., while Stone’s Mia waits tables and serves coffee on the Warner Bros. lot, dreaming of filling the »

Alexis Arquette, Actress and Transgender Activist, Passes Away at 47

12 September 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Alexis Arquette, the transgender actress born Robert Arquette, passed away at the age of 47 yesterday. The news was confirmed by the actress' siblings, Patricia Arquette, David Arquette, Rosanna Arquette and Richmond Arquette. No cause of death has been given at this time. But here is part of the statement written by Patricia Arquette, on behalf of the entire family.

"Our sister, Alexis Arquette, passed away this morning, September 11th, 2016. Alexis was a brilliant artist and painter, a singer, an entertainer and an actor. She starred in movies like Last Exit to Brooklyn, Pulp Fiction, Jumpin' at the Boneyard, Of Mice and Men, The Wedding Singer and The Bride of Chucky. Her career was cut short, not by her passing, but by her decision to live her truth and her life as a transgender woman. Despite the fact that there are few parts for trans actors, she refused to play roles that were demeaning or stereotypical. »

Alexis Arquette: 1969-2016

11 September 2016 10:01 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Den Of Geek Sep 12, 2016

Alexis Arquette has died, it's been announced. She was just 47.

Some very sad news. It’s been announced that actor Alexis Arquette has died. She was just 47 years old, and was surrounded by her family as she passed away.

Arquette featured in films as diverse as Pulp Fiction, Lords Of Dogtown, Bride Of Chucky and Last Exit To Brooklyn. Perhaps her highest profile role was her scene-stealing turn as George in The Wedding Singer.

Arquette also won wide praise for the documentary Alexis Arquette: She’s My Brother, in which she documented her reassignment surgery. Her work was credited with bringing greater awareness to and of the transgender community.

Rest in peace, Alexis Arquette. Our thoughts are very much with her family and friends.

We'll Never Forget Alexis Arquette Simply Because of This 1 Role

11 September 2016 4:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Alexis Arquette died at age 47 on Sunday, and while she was known for her famous family (her brother is David Arquette, her sisters are Patricia and Rosanna Arquette), she was a fiercely talented actress in her own right. Alexis had 70 film and TV credits to her name, including Pulp Fiction, She's All That, and Friends. However, when I think of Alexis Arquette, there's one film that pops into my mind: 1998's The Wedding Singer. She played Robbie's (Adam Sandler) eccentric backup singer, George. No one could have played that part like she did, and her presence elevated that romantic comedy to a whole new level. Watch her shining moment, a gloriously unique version of Culture Club's "Do You Really Want to Hurt Me," above. It's impossible not to appreciate her genius. Fearless. She made such an impact in this role that Boy George himself spoke out about her death on Sunday. »
