Here's an entertainingly blood-filled supercut of every death from the films of Quentin Tarantino. It was edited together by Jaume R. Lloret, and here are the list of films included in the video:
- Reservoir Dogs (1992)
- Pulp Fiction (1994)
- Jackie Brown (1997)
- Kill Bill Vol. 1 (2003)
- Kill Bill Vol. 2 (2004)
- Death Proof (2007)
- Inglorious Basterds (2009)
- Django Unchained (2012)

Quentin Tarantino is basically the Grim Reaper of movies; he's killed off so many characters, it's hard to count. (Vanity Fair once put it at 560 on-screen deaths in eight films.)
Vimeo user James R. Lloret has helpfully compiled all of them into one, very bloody four-minute supercut. It starts with 1992's "Reservoir Dogs" and goes through 2012's "Django Unchained," and is scored to The Delfonics' "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" from the "Jackie Brown Soundtrack."
As violent and disturbing as it is, you can help but feel a bit of nostalgia for some of the more memorable offings, like Bruce Willis machine-gunning John Travolta in "Pulp Fiction" or Uma Thurman slashing her way through a Yakuza army or Hitler receiving a shower of bullets in "Inglorious Bastards."
Awww, good times were had by all.
Quentin Tarantino // Every Death from Jaume R. Lloret on Vimeo. »

I don't think it's a spoiler to say people die in Quentin Tarantino movies. I think it's pretty safe to assume people will die in his next movie, The Hateful Eight. Hell, people might even die in the upcoming teaser trailer for the film set to play in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend even though filming on the movie has yet to begin. That's how often people die in Tarantino movies and Vimeo user Jaume R. Lloret has taken upon himself to pore over Tarantino's filmography -- Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Kill: Bill Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Django Unchained (2012) -- and presents every death from a Tarantino film in the following four-minute supercut. Previously, Vanity Fair charted every death in Tarantino's movies can came up with approximately 560 total on-screen deaths (see the chart below the video »

A surprise trailer for "The Hateful Eight" apparently coming in front of digital prints of "Sin City: Dame To Kill For" this weekend will be the first look at what Quentin Tarantino has up his sleeve for the feature. But if you've seen his other films (and c'mon, you have), you know that his love of genre and grindhouse cinema has resulted in a catalog of stylized movies featuring distinctive dialogue, bold visuals and a bloody body count to go with it. So one Jaume R. Lloret put together a four minute supercut featuring every Tarantino movie death from "Reservoir Dogs" right through to "Django Unchained." Powered by The Delfonics' "Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time)" (featured in "Jackie Brown") this video has every bullet wound, stabbing, car crash and more across Qt's oeuvre, and will certainly do the job of perking you up if you haven't had your coffee yet. »

Everything I do tends to revolve around music. It’s mandatory that I reserve about 45 minutes of my day to unwind with some good tunes and headphones. I can’t even begin my day right if I don’t enjoy music with my morning coffee, so it only makes sense that I Have to listen to music while I write. Personally, I feel the music that I listen to while I create helps set a foundation for my writing, and also sets the mood for the particular piece I am working on. So here it is…this is the music behind my silly lists, and Exploitation Alleys.
1). Harley Poe – “Ouija”
To those of you who are familiar with the amazing Harley Poe, then you totally get this. If you aren’t familiar with their music, I suggest you give them a listen. With their upbeat, folk punk sounds mixed with horror inspired lyrics… »
Nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Award at the 70th Academy Awards in 1998, Robin Williams was in good company. He was up for the Oscar alongside Robert Forster (Jackie Brown), Anthony Hopkins (Amistad), Greg Kinnear (As Good as It Gets) and Burt Reynolds (Boogie Nights). But it was Williams's year. Nominated previously for Good Morning, Vietnam (in 1987, a role for which he did win a Golden Globe), Dead Poets Society (in 1989, arguably his other greatest role) and The Fisher King (1991), the actor gave a nuanced portrayal of psychotherapist Sean Maguire in Good Will Hunting that now seems like the obvious choice for the award. »

"This might be the one time I'm speechless," said the late, great Robin Williams during his Best Supporting Actor Oscar acceptance speech for "Good Will Hunting." Williams passed away Monday at the age of 63. -Break- Join the Robin Williams discussion right now in the Gold Derby message boards Williams' Oscar triumph in 1997 propelled this one-time jokester from a popular comedian to a bonafide acting heavyweight. After three previous losses in the Best Actor race -- "Good Morning, Vietnam" in 1987, "Dead Poets Society" in 1989 and "The Fisher King" in 1991 -- Williams finally claimed Oscar gold in the supporting race for playing therapist Dr. Sean Maguire in the uplifting Boston-set drama. In his acceptance sppech, he cited his four fellow nominees: Robert Forster ("Jackie Brown"), Anthony Hopkins ("Amistad"), Greg Kinnear ("As Good as it Gets") an »
The calls have been heard loud and clear, both on stage and off at the Oscars or in the annals of the web and at the box office: the world demands more movies with women, about women, by women and for women.
Every week a movie seems to be failing the Bechdel test, and every week a separate movie ends up walking away with the lion’s share at the box office. From hits like Maleficent, The Fault in Our Stars and Lucy to monster franchises like The Hunger Games, the old notion that teenage boys are the ones driving the demand at the movies is rapidly eroding. The Hollywood Reporter pointed out that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy opened to a 44 percent female audience on the film’s opening weekend, the highest share for any Marvel movie to date.
And although they’ve taken their sweet time, Hollywood »

Critic Ken Dancyger, when reviewing hotshot new director Quentin Tarantino’s second feature Pulp Fiction, called it “a new phenomenon, the movie whose style is created from the context of movie life rather than real life. The consequence is twofold—the presumption of deep knowledge on the part of the audience of those forms such as the gangster films or Westerns, horror films or adventure films. And that the parody or alteration of that film creates a new form, a different experience for the audience.”
Tarantino himself has agreed with this assessment, splitting his films up further into the “realer than real” and “movie movies”. The “realer than real” – Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown – are still pretty divorced from reality, but they’re still more grounded than the “movie movies” like Kill Bill and Death Proof. As over the top as his characters can be, though, and »

In 1995 and 1997, Robert Anthony De Niro Jr. had Heat and Jackie Brown released into cinemas. Not his best films or his best performances, perhaps, but mesmerising work in excellent pictures directed by master filmmakers: the former saw him convince for Michael Mann as the cool, meticulous leader of a gang of career criminals; the latter had Quentin Tarantino give viewers a dim crim whose uncontrollable anger contributes to the unravelling of a heist.
For a whole generation of moviegoers who have grown up since, however, the adulation that's universally showered upon De Niro must be perplexing. Occasionally he summons up a portion of his old intensity – his turns in What Just Happened, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle are the (slim) picks of the last 15 years – but for anyone who got into movies from the late '90s on, he's the funny guy in Analyze This and Meet The Parents, »
English, motherf–er, do you speak it? Because Samuel L. Jackson does, or at least all the one word he needs to know.
In the grand tradition of reducing celebrities and characters to their favorite lines, the Huffington Post put together this supercut of every time Jackson has said “motherf–ker” on film. You can see the full analysis on their website, which breaks down the mothef–kers by film, including the detail that 1997’s Jackie Brown takes the lead with 37.
If written text is more your style, then rest assured that Jackson has produced just as many variations of »

They're now officially counting Kill Bill as One feature so that The Hateful Eight can be Quentin Tarantino's official "8th" film. Convenient, eh? But that's okay because they should've been one film all along. And oh what gross film-splittings have occurred in their wake.
Question: Shouldn't you start filming before releasing a poster?
The movie is not scheduled to start filming until 2015... and the poster assumes everything will happen on schedule and it will be out by the end of that year. Good luck, movie! This reminds me of Amir's rants about all those opening day announcements for secret movies. Hollywood has a preemie problem.
And may Quentin get this out of his system since this'll be his second consecutive nearly all male western. May he some day return to writing great female roles again because he's slipping into terrain that other writer/directors have covered sufficiently throughout time. »

Welcome back to Mystery DVD Club. The idea behind this is simple: we went and bought a whole host of films that we hadn't heard of before, none of which cost us more than a few pounds. Then, we sent them to a bunch of our writers, without telling them what 'film' they were going to receive. Could we unearth a hidden gem? Aliya is hopeful...
When you start looking into the career of Isaac Hayes, you find out he was good at a lot of things. He co-wrote great hits such as Soul Man and When Something Is Wrong With My Baby. He produced a lot of brilliant records for Stax. He was a hugely successful singer, and reinterpreted a lot of Burt Bacharach classics into long soulful epics. He was the voice of Chef in South Park. »
File this under "inevitable Internet gold": Huffington Post's Ben Craw and Oliver Noble have put together an impressive, mind-boggling supercut of every time Samuel L. Jackson has said "motherfucker" in a movie. That's exactly 171 motherfuckers from 27 different movies, uttered in under four minutes and presented in chronological order, from 1988's School Daze to this year's RoboCop.

Backstrom has secured a father for Rainn Wilson's title character. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Robert Forster will join the first season of the Fox drama, appearing in two episodes. The straight-to-series order, set for a midseason debut, cast the Jackie Brown and Descendants actor as Sheriff Blue Backstrom — something of a local legend in the town of detective Everett Backstrom (Wilson). Their relationship is muddied by Everett's memories of Blue as an abusive father, but the senior Backstrom has a good reputation for his savvy police work.

This week’s Blu-ray and DVD releases are an eclectic bunch, to say the least. Not only is Steve Miner’s criminally overlooked horror/comedy creature feature Lake Placid swimming its way onto Blu-ray, but Severin Films is also releasing a trio of controversial cult classics- Bloody Moon, The Baby and Bloody Birthday-all in high definition for the first time ever.
The Time Machine is also getting a Blu-ray release this week, along with Gareth Evans’ stunning action masterpiece The Raid 2 and a handful of indie horror films, including the wickedly entertaining horror musical Stage Fright starring Minnie Driver and Meat Loaf. Overall, it’s a good week to be a genre fan with oddball tastes because there’s a whole lot of wonderfully weird stuff arriving this Tuesday.

I remember the so-called prequel being announced back in 2010; at the time there wasn't much info on it - definitely not what actors would appear in it. We would later learn that Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def) and John Hawkes (star of Sundance 2012 hit "The Surrogate") had signed on to star in the film, and are joined by Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Isla Fisher and Will Forte. Dan Schechter directed the film from his own script adaption. Titled "Life of Crime," based on Elmore Leonard's novel "The Switch" (the original 1997 film, "Jackie Brown," which starred Pam »

They're talented, individual, but could, possibly, do with a bit of editorial guidance. Could these directors use a boss, we wonder?
In truth, we're a bit frightened about this one. Several times in pub/coffee shop/cider drinking in the park conversations, we've chatted about film directors who perhaps have got too powerful, that they seem to be able to get their own way without having someone to call bullshit on them - be it a good boss, or a very good friend that they trust and listen to.
This can be a very good thing. After all, we want film directors to be free to tell their stories. We don't want studio suits calling the shots. And some directors use their independence wondefully well, without losing what bought it to them in the first place (so, Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, Robert Zemeckis and such like).
Today we have posters for "Life of Crime," a prequel to Quentin Tarantino's "Jackie Brown," Eli Roth's "Green Inferno" cannibal horror film, and Jeremy Renner's "Kill the Messenger." Check everything out below. Life of Crime: The wealthy husband of a kidnapped wife doesn't want to pay her ransom. The film stars Jennifer Aniston, Tim Robbins, Mos Def, Isla Fisher, Will Forte and John Hawkes. It's set to hit theaters on August 29th. Green Inferno: A group of student activists travel from New York City to the Amazon to save a dying tribe. Unfortunately, they crash in the jungle and are taken hostage by the very natives they protected. Set to hit theaters on September 5th. Kill the Messenger: A reporter becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign that drives him to the point of suicide after he exposes the CIA's role in arming Contra rebels »
