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

2 February 2016 8:49 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

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. Note that if you’re looking to support the site, every purchase you make through the links below helps us and is greatly appreciated.

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, »

In Quentin Tarantino.s Pulp Fiction, he played .Flock Of Seagulls,. a.k.a. the guy on the couch who gets shot and killed while Samuel L.

This is one of the most iconic scenes of the film, and as a result modern cinema, however, there is one thing you may not know about it: Steers repeatedly messed up takes due to his animated reactions to the sequences. gunshots.

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.

The Two Pulp Fiction Spinoffs Quentin Tarantino Wanted To Make

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

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, »

With the use of some beautiful hand-drawn animation, an enlightening and funny narration, and Powley’s versatile performance, this is about as intimate as a subjective picture gets.

2 Rabbits Review

19 January 2016 7:00 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

2 Rabbits is the kind of film that’s spawned from an obsession with fragmented criminal thrillers akin to Pulp Fiction, The Boondock Saints, Snatch, so on, and so forth. But these movies are either masterfully crafted or luckily hyped, and while Afonso Poyart commands style, his storytelling can’t quite pull off the chaotic abandon of such unwieldy voices. As you can tell from the image above, expect the unexpected from Poyart’s mind, yet the barrage of visual obscurity becomes overbearing as his screenplay refuses to stop shifting. No one is who they seem, and no character is insignificant – but with so many moving parts, it’s hard to keep them all working fluidly.

While a host of characters make an appearance, the linchpin to it all is a slacker named Edgar (Fernando Alves Pinto). His plan, in its simplest form, is to bring justice back to Brazil, while »

Quentin Tarantino Reveals What Links All His Movies

19 January 2016 5:20 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

For decades, dozens of fan theories have circulated on the connectivity of Quentin Tarantino’s movies, suggesting that the master filmmakers movies are all part of a bigger tapestry. Many believe all his movies, and not just those that he has directed, inhabit the same universe with disparate characters been revealed to be connected to each other in some way, most famously Vic Vega from Reservoir and Vincent Vega from Pulp Fiction being brothers. Tarantino himself has pretty much kept  away from the debate until, but now, speaking on Australian news show The Project yesterday, he has  revealed that those theories weren’t exactly wrong, they were just thinking a bit too small. You see, the man hasn’t cultivated just one universe in his movies, he has cultivated two. We’ll let him explain: There is actually two separate universes. There is the realer than real universe, alright. And »

What John Travolta Learned from Playing Robert Shapiro in American Crime Story: 'Every Week There Was Something New'

18 January 2016 9:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

John Travolta's portrayal of Robert Shapiro in the upcoming FX series American Crime Story: The People vs, O.J. Simpson was not just an eye-opener, but also a learning experience. "Every week there was something new," Travolta, 61, exclusively told People during the FX Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour on Saturday in Pasadena, California. "For me, it was the legal system and the judicial system. I didn't realize how they were so designed for themselves and not really for the humanities for for fairness, but how clever can you be to work the system. That was interesting to me as an overall thing. »

7 badass tracks from Ennio Morricone’s The Hateful Eight score

17 January 2016 2:42 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sean Wilson breaks down the Oscar nominated score for Quentin Tarantino’s blood-splattered epic…

Proud recipient of an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe, Ennio Morricone’s spine-tingling score for Quentin Tarantino’s Western opus The Hateful Eight is rich with a sense of menace and paranoia.

Morricone’s first Western soundtrack in over 30 years is also the first commissioned orchestral soundtrack for a Tarantino project; in the past, the controversial Pulp Fiction filmmaker has been reluctant to trust a composer with the essence of his movie. But if you’re going to trust it to anyone, the legendary Morricone (reportedly responsible for over 400 scores) has got to be that person. Here are the awesome cues that put the hate in The Hateful Eight.

L’Ultima Diligenza di Red Rock

The overarching theme of Morricone’s brooding and gripping soundtrack tells you everything you need to know: something violent and dangerous is riding into town. »

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.

Synopsis:

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.

Police claim victory as Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight struggles

15 January 2016 1:30 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino’s bloody western has so far made just $61m worldwide and could be the director’s weakest-performing film since Grindhouse

A New York police union chief has claimed victory over Quentin Tarantino after the Oscar-winning film-maker’s new western, The Hateful Eight, struggled at the box office.

Patrick J Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association of the City of New York, was one of the first officials to call for a boycott of the Pulp Fiction director following his appearance at a rally in support of campaigners against police brutality on 24 October.
