14 October 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Uma Thurman's ex-fiancé Arpad Busson has just sued the actress for custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Rosalind. Multiple outlets report that the French financier filed an emergency order in New York Supreme Court earlier today, however the papers are sealed. Specifics regarding his filing are unknown currently, and his attorney declined to comment to E! News on the matter. The Pulp Fiction star dated Busson on and off since 2007, but the two ended their engagement in April of this year.

Thought billionaire playboys made for unlikely vigilantes? You haven’t met Miss Meadows, the heroine of Karen Leigh Hopkins‘ offbeat indie thriller of the same title. Played by Katie Holmes, this prim and proper elementary school looks so sugar-sweet, bluebirds literally follow her around while she tap-dances down the street. But what her community doesn’t know […]

Watch: Trailer & 2 Clips For Crime Thriller 'The Lookalike' Starring Gillian Jacobs, Justin Long & More

14 October 2014 2:55 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Okay, here's another random movie seemingly coming out of nowhere, featuring some people we like, that is hopefully better than it looks. The trailer and a couple of clips (via Indiewire) have arrived for the crime thriller "The Lookalike," and we'll let you make the judgment call about quality for yourself. Starring Justin Long, John Corbett, Gillian Jacobs, Jerry O’Connell, Gina Gershon, Scottie Thompson, and Luís Guzman, and directed by Richard Gray, the movie centers around a drug lord whose two goons accidentally kill his favorite gal and have to find a replacement. It's a journey that sees no shortage of wacky characters getting into the mix. This looks far more serious than the premise suggests, while also feeling like it was cut the from the same cloth as every sub "Pulp Fiction" knock off from the '90s. "The Lookalike" opens on in theaters and on VOD on November 7th. »

'Pulp Fiction' spawn: The best and worst of the Tarantino clones that followed

14 October 2014 1:58 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Pulp Fiction opened in theaters 20 years ago today, the mainstream moviegoing audience was introduced to a dynamic new Hollywood talent. Quentin Tarantino was a 31-year-old hipster whose formal film education never rose much higher than working as a clerk in a Manhattan Beach video store. A walking encyclopedia of film history who fetishized some of the more obscure genres, Tarantino had a gift for dialog and his own visual toolbox that expanded the language of cinematic storytelling. Pulp Fiction was the culmination of a two-year stretch where the director went from Nobody to Wunderkind, beginning with the Sundance premiere »

Et Flashback: On Set with 'Pulp Fiction' 20 Years Ago

14 October 2014 1:07 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

20 years later, we're still loving Pulp Fiction!

Can you believe it's been 20 years since we first learned what a "Royale with Cheese" was in Quentin Tarantino's classic Pulp Fiction?

Et was on the set a year before the film's release back in 1993 with stars John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, and the creator himself, Quentin Tarantino.

"The intensity level is way up, and the comedy level is way up and that’s even disturbing," Tarantino told Et. "I'm trying to also make you laugh at things you've never laughed about."

And while we couldn't imagine anyone else as Vincent Vega, there was once a time when the John Travolta casting choice came as a shock.

"A lot of people read the script before we cast and they’re thinking of a zillion different names and then you say John Travolta – they go… what!?" Tarantino »

What Did Critics Write About Pulp Fiction When It Debuted 20 Years Ago?

14 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Twenty years ago, Quentin Tarantino sucker-punched moviegoers with Pulp Fiction, a sprawling, pop-culture-filled romp that secured him as one of the most enticing, up-and-coming filmmakers of the '90s. Critics were transfixed — for better or for worse — by the film and its director's obsession with obscenity, violence, and unconventional narrative structure. Some swooned at Fiction and Tarantino (The New Yorker's Anthony Lane, though not entirely taken with the film as a whole, went as far as saying Tarantino had invented his very own kind of plot). Others, like Howie Movshovitz and Stanley Kauffmann, seemed to bristle at what they perceived to be Tarantino's disconnectedness from reality, which some argued was rooted in the writer-director's version of film school: working at a video-rental store. We've taken a trip to the archives to round up a few takes on Tarantino's classic."[A] triumphant, cleverly disorienting journey through a demimonde that springs entirely from »

Katie Holmes is a Cute Little Killer in Second 'Miss Meadows' Trailer

14 October 2014 11:36 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Kind of a Pulp Fiction, Mary Poppins." That line in the new trailer for the quirky thriller Miss Meadows sums it up rather perfectly, but somehow we don't think the film will measure up to either of those revered films. Katie Holmes plays a wholesome, charming school teacher who isn't afraid to get her hands dirty when the opportunity calls for it. Delivering justice with a tiny little pistol she keeps for her purse, she's ready to keep the bad guys away from her children and the nice town in which she lives. But can she keep her secret from the local law enforcement, including the sheriff played by James Badge Dale? Watch! Here's the new trailer for Karen Leigh Hopkins' Miss Meadows from YouTube: Watch the first trailer for Miss Meadows, starring Katie Holmes, right here.

'Pulp Fiction' Turns 20: Quentin Tarantino's Top 12 Films (Clips)

14 October 2014 8:56 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

It's hard to believe that on this day 20 years ago, Quentin Tarantino unleashed "Pulp Fiction" onto the world. After winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes in May 1994, this unexpected masterpiece went wide on October 14 which, for an indie directed by a newcomer, was unheard of. The rest is history. As Tarantino begins his next film "The Hateful Eight" with the recently cast Jennifer Jason Leigh, and has now taken over programming at the New Beverly theater in Los Angeles, it's high time to revisit his favorite films list, a fitful collection of gore-splattered genre films, westerns and American classics. Below, brush up on your "Pulp Fiction" with a few classic clips. (And you can stream the film on Netflix.) Quentin Tarantino's Top 12 films 1. "The Good, The Bad & The Ugly" (1966, dir. Sergio Leone) 2. "Apocalypse Now" (1979, dir. Francis Ford Coppola) 3. "The Bad News Bears" (1976, dir. Michael Ritchie) 4. »

‘Pulp Fiction’ at 20: Why It’s the Coolest Film of the ’90s

14 October 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Like a shot of adrenaline to the heart, “Pulp Fiction” changed the movie landscape when it opened on Oct. 14, 1994. Quentin Tarantino’s ode to crime and pop-culture was a bold new cinematic vision in a decade that badly needed one. Before “Pulp Fiction,” prestige films like “Dances with Wolves” and “A Few Good Men” seemed content to play it safe, while blockbusters like “Jurassic Park” and “The Fugitive” focused squarely on the mainstream. Overnight, the term ‘Tarantinoesque’ became shorthand for audaciously stylized ultra-violence and genre-bending thrills. On its 20th anniversary, here’s why “Pulp Fiction” remains the coolest movie of the ’90s.

The Soundtrack: From the rumbling reverb of Dick Dale’s surf-rock rendition of “Misirlou” to the soulful crooning of Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” and the strip club sexiness of Kool & the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie,” the “Pulp Fiction” soundtrack effortlessly mixes musical styles the way the film blends genres. »

The 20 Best 'Pulp Fiction' Quotes Ever, Ranked

14 October 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The "King Kong of crime movies" is 20 years old today.

Rolling Stone gave "Pulp Fiction" that moniker upon its release, and it's hard to argue that the name doesn't still ring true two decades later. The Quentin Tarantino classic roared out of the gates after winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes, intertwining tales of violence and redemption in 1990s Los Angeles, much to the delight of the world.

And it seems the world has not forgotten.

"Pulp Fiction" is quoted endlessly even today -- yet it still (somehow) manages to remain fresh. The self-righteousness of Samuel L. Jackson's Jules Winnfield announcing itself at every turn, the quiet calm of Uma Thurman's Mia before the storm, or the deadpan humor of Bruce Willis's Butch.

To honor the 20th anniversary of "Pulp Fiction" and its collection of unforgettable characters and dialogue, here are the 20 best quotes from the crime classic. »

20 People Have Done The Creepiest Thing Possible After Watching Pulp Fiction

13 October 2014 2:38 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The 20th anniversary of Quentin Tarantino.s legendary cinematic opus, Pulp Fiction, is almost upon us. Not only did it introduce the world to arguably the two coolest gangster henchmen in cinematic history, but its dark and twisty journey through the seedy underworld of Los Angeles life proved that Tarantino was one of the most vivacious and provocative directors of his era. He managed to achieve all this even though his film included a character simply called The Gimp - a character that is part of one of the strangest backstories you've ever heard about the revolutionary indie title. Steve Hibbert, who played Pulp Fiction.s Gimp back in the early 1990s, has been discussing his role in the film to celebrate its impending anniversary, and he.s revealed that he has been privy to some quite disturbing responses to his performance.

DVD Review – Kite (2014)

13 October 2014 7:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kite, 2014.

Directed by Ralph Ziman.

Starring Samuel L. Jackson, India Eisley, Callan McAuliffe, Carl Beukes, and Deon Lotz.

Synopsis:

When her cop father is killed, a young woman tracks the murder with the apparent help of his ex-partner.

Kite, the live action remake of the 1998 Japanese Anime, sees Samuel L. Jackson continuing his recent run of straight to DVD appearances. As it happens a live action Us version of the popular Anime didn’t quite have enough interest for the big screen. Never-the-less, Brian Cox’s (not that Brian Cox) screenplay is a largely faithful retelling of the original story.

Kite tells the story of Sawa an orphaned girl haunted by the murder of her parents before her eyes. She spends her teens and early adult years dependant on drugs which help keep her memories repressed. She was also trained and raised to become an assassin by Karl Aker (Jackson) her fathers former police partner. »

12 Movies to See After You Watch ‘Pulp Fiction’

10 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Quentin Tarantino‘s Pulp Fiction is one of the most influential movies ever made, which is interesting given that it’s also one of the most influenced movies ever made. The 1994 feature, which was released theatrically 20 years ago this month, is like the Paul’s Boutique of film given all the cinematic samples it’s comprised of. Tarantino is the uber movie geek, and he shows it over and over again in his own work, and this collaboration with co-writer Roger Avary might take the cake as far as how many allusions he can fit in, whether they’re spoken references or shots that perfectly mimic and repurpose those of his favorite classic films. You can find homages in the plot, dialogue, character names, props, cinematography and more. Because there are so many movies referenced in Pulp Fiction, and because you can find many places online that attempt to list them all, I »

The Gimp Unleashed: Pulp Fiction’s Creepy Bondage Slave Tells All

10 October 2014 8:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Hello. This is the Gimp. I hear you’ve been looking for me?” In one of the strangest moments in Pulp Fiction, the two pawnshop rapists who have kidnapped boxer Butch Coolidge (played by Bruce Willis) and crime-lord Marsellus Wallace (Ving Rhames) task a leather-clad bondage slave — “well, bring out the Gimp ...” — with watching over Butch as they set about to violate Marsellus in a separate area of their basement dungeon that is also referred to, cryptically, as “Russell’s old room.” The Gimp didn’t make for much of a security guard, but the character certainly made an impression on Pulp Fiction fans, in part because of all the mystery surrounding him. Who is this masked man? Why is he helping these sadists? What on Earth was this guy thinking?To get answers to these and other burning Gimp-related questions, we looked around for the actor who played him »

Quentin Tarantino Casts Jennifer Jason Leigh in 'Hateful Eight'

9 October 2014 5:42 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

We can all breathe a sigh of relief that Tarantino has chosen terrific character actress Jennifer Jason Leigh for the female lead in "Hateful Eight." Her classy low-key acting style in mostly present-set films doesn't exactly scream "Tarantino." But there's a reason for that: he's casting against type. It will be great fun to see Leigh take a bite out of the role of a wanted murderess in wintry Civil War-era Wyoming with a $10,000 hit on her head. Daisy takes a lot of abuse in this claustrophobic Western homage while trapped in a blizzard with a surly lot of stagecoach travelers, bounty hunters and a Confederate soldier.  From too-cool Mia Wallace in "Pulp Fiction" to the female revenge-seekers in "Kill Bill" and "Inglorious Basterds," Tarantino writes juicy women's roles, and his actresses make meals out of them. At Tarantino's historic Los Angeles live read of the "Hateful" script, Amber Tamblyn read for Daisy, »
