April Showers: Pulp Fiction

6 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

the waterworks continue

Will you give me oral pleasure?

I was casually skimming through Pulp Fiction the other day and watched scenes from the Bruce Willis portion. It's the storyline that's easiest to forget since it feels less energized by Tarantino's then shockingly fresh auteurial voice and rapid pop-culture infused dialogue and more like a general riff on cliché movie tropes (the boxer who won't take a fall, an antihero on the run, etcetera)... well at least until The Gimp shows up. But watching it again, I was reminded that Quentin Tarantino's movies used to be more firmly rooted in accessible humanity. We didn't know it at the time of course because his work was then so "new" and stylized that it didn't feel intimate in the way the movies have taught us to expect. But post-Jackie Brown his work became increasingly cartoonish (this is not always a »

Alejandro González Iñárritu Is Leonardo DiCaprio’s New Martin Scorsese

15 April 2014 2:40 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Leonardo DiCaprio is a busy man, known for stockpiling projects. Deadline reports that up next will be The Revenant with director Alejandro González Iñárritu. They will start filming this fall for a fall 2015 release. The two almost shot the film a couple of years ago, but DiCaprio decided to go with The Wolf of Wall Street instead. It's based on the Michael Punke novel, and Leo will play a 19th century fur trapper who, after being mauled by a bear, is robbed by some associates and left for dead. He, however, survives so he can get his revenge. It's kind of like Kill Bill, if it starred dudes and Quentin Tarantino were able to act on only one influence at a time. »

Baz Luhrmann in talks for Kung Fu remake

13 April 2014 9:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Baz Luhrmann – director of Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rogue! and The Great Gatsby – has entered talks with Legendary Pictures with regards to helming the upcoming big screen adaptation of the classic 1970s TV series Kung Fu. Should he finalise a deal, it’s said he’ll also rewrite the script, which has been penned by John McLaughlin (Black Swan).

Premiering in 1972 with a full length TV movie, Kung Fu starred David Carradine (Kill Bill) as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk travelling through the American Old West in search of his half brother. The series ran until 1975, with a total of 63 episodes, and was followed by the TV features Kung Fu: The Movie (1986) and Kung Fu: The Next Generation (1987), along with a spin-off series entitled Kung Fu: The Legend Continues between 1993 and 1997.

Baz Luhrmann Looking At ‘Kung Fu’ For Next Picture

12 April 2014 1:43 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Kung Fu was a massive hit on television back in the 1970s. It starred Kill Bill star David Carradine as a monk named Kwai Chang Caine, who ‘walked the earth’ literally kicking butt using some pretty decent kung fu moves. Now it looks like Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann is looking to bring it to the big screen.

The filmmaker is in talks to direct the film, which previously had actor-turned-director Bill Paxton attached.

The original show ran on ABC in the Us from 1972 to 1975. It was created by Ed Spielman, directed and produced by Jerry Thorpe.

Luhrmann doesn’t seem the obvious choice for a Kung Fu movie, but it’s certainly an interesting one.

Deepikas elaborate stunts in Rajinikanth starrer

11 April 2014 3:19 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Very early in her career when she did two back-to-back double roles in Om Shanti Om and Chandni Chowk To China, Deepika Padukone got to do some martial arts in the latter. But nothing like what she has done in the new Rajinikanth release Kochadaiyaan. Since then Deepika has been pining to show her athletic skills on screen. Says the actress, "I come from a family where sports is a given. We are very outdoor types. Doing my own stunts on screen is a dream situation for me." Deepika's one 10-minute stunt in Kochadaiyaan has been choreographed by Peter Hein. Hein has done the stunts for Rajinikanth's Robot. Apparently Rajinikanth personally requested Hein to make Deepika's action sequences "super-hero styled." Deepika's stunning stunts in Kochadaiyaan are described by the film's co-producer K Murli Manohar as "never before action by a female star from any part of the world...on a »

Nurse 3D Blu-Ray Review

8 April 2014 6:02 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Nurse Ratched terrorized Chief Bromden and Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, nurses have been slotted into two categories by Hollywood writers. There’s the battle axe, like Ratched and Sister Jude in American Horror Story: Asylum (to give a more recent example), and the naughty nurse, like Dakota Block in Planet Terror, Elle Driver in Kill Bill and any number of adult actresses. To my knowledge, however, no film has ever combined the two with such nutty results as Nurse 3D.

Paz de la Huerta proves an inspired choice to play Abby Russell, a devoted nurse by day who stalks through clubs at night, murdering men she seduces into cheating on their wives. When Abby goes out drinking one night with new nurse Danni (Katrina Bowden) and finds herself intensely attracted to the young woman, she spends the night with her and begins to pursue her romantically. »

‘Nymphomaniac’ a philosophical take on addiction

7 April 2014 7:38 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Nymphomaniac

Written and directed by Lars von Trier

Denmark, Belgium, France, and Germany, 2014

Lars von Trier will never change, nor should he.  Being a showman at heart, his career—and image—have been referred to as both serious and preposterous, and his latest work, Nymphomaniac, will not settle the debate, as it embodies the kind of wink-wink self-indulgence detractors loath, while providing enough intellectual insight and cinematic energy to be a worthy entry in the director’s already impressive oeuvre.  In fact, Nymphomaniac is best viewed as a von Trier highlight reel, where aspects of his previous work are combined and referenced.

Starring a never-better Charlotte Gainsbourg as the sex-addicted Joe (Stacy Martin plays the younger Joe), Nymphomaniac opens to the sound of dribbling water playing over an empty black screen, and the moment is one part cheeky symbolism, one part atmosphere; von Trier setting the stage for the long »

This Guy Mapped Out the Entire 'Kill Bill' Timeline So You Don't Have To

4 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Nerve | See recent Nerve news »

This Guy Mapped Out the Entire 'Kill Bill' Timeline So You Don't Have To "Chronology is for dweebs." - Quentin Tarantino by Conor Gallagher  Quentin Tarantino has pretty much cemented himself as an all-star filmmaker. He consistently brings us cult hits, amazing action, and in recent years, Academy Award-winning films that tackle tightly-wound issues with a humor and dexterity that few could match. Along with that superb storytelling comes artistic freedom and sometimes, a hell of a lot of confusion. Thankfully, Noah Smith is here to help.  Flavorwire found Mr. Smith's most recent gem in the form of a chronological Kill Bill infographic/timeline. As anyone who has seen a Tarantino movie can attest, time flow and general chronology don't really make sense until the end — if at all. (What was in the suitcase?) Add in the fact that Kill Bill was one giant [...] »

Film Review: ‘In the Blood’

3 April 2014 11:12 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Pulses are likely to remain level during “In the Blood,” a serviceable vehicle for Mma champ Gina Carano (“Haywire”). In a plot that variously recalls “True Lies,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight” and “Kill Bill,” Carano plays a new bride looking forward to a tranquil domestic life who’s forced to deploy her secret, all-purpose beatdown skills after her husband disappears. Given the limited release (the film is opening simultaneously on VOD), B.O. potency will depend on getting the word out to Carano’s fans, who may already be used to watching her on pay-per-view.

Perhaps inadvertently, the kidnapped-vacationers plot revisits territory director John Stockwell explored in 2006′s organ-trafficking thriller “Turistas,” down to a subplot involving a nonconsensual transfusion. A prologue sets the stage on the mean streets of Bridgeport, Conn., in 2002, when Ava (played as a teenager by Paloma Olympia Louvat) witnesses and avenges the murder of her self-styled »

30 Funniest Movie Bloopers

3 April 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Everybody loves movie outtakes and bloopers. Maybe it’s because they humanize the stars we’ve chosen to exalt, painting them in a light where they’re really no different from us. On the other hand, maybe it’s just because they’re funny. Either way, “gag reels” are a staple of DVD and Blu-Ray releases, and are likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future.

Here we’ve scoured hours of footage online to find thirty of the absolute funniest blunders, jokes, and plain old crack-ups in filming history. Sure, they caused the director to yell for another take (or maybe even break from filming for the day), but they were still entertaining enough to commit to immortality. They’ll live on as long as the films we’ve loved and lamented.

As always, the “comments” space is there for you. Think we missed something, or gave a »

TV Review: From Dusk Till Dawn (Episode 1)

30 March 2014 4:58 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

 

 

I’ll just come right out and say it: when it was announced that Robert Rodriguez was planning on turning his film From Dusk Till Dawn into a TV series for his new El Rey cable network, I was about as excited for it as I would be for someone to shoot me in the gut and leave me bleeding to death. While I am an Huge fan of the first few Rodriguez films, I just haven’t enjoyed much of his recent efforts whatsoever. So, when the El Rey network sent me the first five episodes, I binge-watched them all and imagine my surprise when not only where they decent, but actually Good…strike that, Really Good. So if you feel so inclined, read on!

*Note: these reviews will contain a lot of spoilers, so if you haven’t watched each episode yet, you might want to do that first, »

‘Kick-Ass’ lacks thematic consistency but packs in a lot of guilty fun

29 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Kick-Ass

Written by Jane Goldman and Mathew Vaughn

Directed by Matthew Vaughn

USA, 2010

As the famous saying goes: ‘And now for something completely different.’

There are some films studios love to make and one of those particular genres is the superhero/comic book movie. Another thing studios love to put into their films is plenty of action, with epic battles pitting valiant heroes against nefarious and deadly villains. A slick, polished look as well as a clever editing to heighten the experience, funny dialogue, memorable supporting characters, all of these are equally staples of what Hollywood enjoys churning out, especially when producing films based on superheroes. Most, if not all of these elements are ready and present in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass. However, the search for financial support within the studio system proved a bit more challenging than usual, the reason being that Kick-Ass, for all its tantalizing strengths, is »

Kevin Costner Talks Western Film Series Plans

29 March 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There are, essentially, two different worlds in cinema. In one, it is about art and original storytelling – the expression of unique ideas and voices for the purpose of thought-provoking entertainment. In the other, it is specifically designed to make money. The former gives us films such as Donnie Darko, Whip It and Being John Malkovich. The latter gives us Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Occasionally, a rare individual demonstrates the possibility of crossing that divide, and participates in projects that – sometimes - have feet in both camps. Alfonso Cuaron can do it. The Coen Brothers can do it. Tom Hanks can do it. And sometimes, believe it or not, Kevin Costner can do it, too.

There are some less than fragrant titles on Kevin Costner’s resume – as you would expect from an actor whose breakout role happened almost thirty years ago, in Silverado. The difference between Costner and most other long-serving filmmakers, »

Rumer Willis Does Dad Proud in New Tarantino Musical (Photos)

29 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Twenty years after "Pulp Fiction" exploded onto the scene, Bruce Willis's daughter, Rumer Willis, is tearing it up in a live Quentin Tarantino musical mash-up that pays homage to the indie blockbuster and every other Tarantino flick. And surprise, surprise, she's terrific.

Rumer Willis takes on multiple roles, most notably Mia from "Pulp Fiction" and The Bride from "Kill Bill" in "For the Record: Tarantino," which opened March 27 at Dba in West Hollywood, CA.

As The Bride, Willis belts out "Bang, Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" in bridal attire, fights O-Ren Ishii with a samurai sword and, as Mia, does a seductive dance as she sings "Son of a Preacher Man." She also recreates the famous dance contest from the film, move for retro move.

Previous "For the Record" productions were homages to the films of Baz Luhrmann (in which Willis played Juliet), Martin Scorsese and Robert Zemeckis. »

Teen Wolf season 3 finale: The Divine Move

25 March 2014 12:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Review Ron Hogan 25 Mar 2014 - 07:09

Teen Wolf is in stronger shape than ever in its season three finale. Here's Ron's review...

This review contains spoilers.

3.24 The Divine Move

The game of Go is many things to many people. It's a game of strategy, it's a way to meditate, it's a way to pass the time, it's a way to keep a werewolf under control in an internment camp... but most of all, it's a metaphor. Stiles has been playing Go versus his bandage-wrapped metal-mouthed mummy mental invader repeatedly this season, and it doesn't seem like things are going Stiles' way. However, there's one option left, the so-called divine move. Not so much a strategy as a stroke of luck, the divine move is the move that tilts the balance of the Go board and completely changes the game.

Teen Wolf's third season may have been its version of the divine move. »

If you’ve seen the fabulously entertaining Ozploitation documentary Not Quite Hollywood — which tracks the rise of Down Under genre films in the ’70s and ’80s — then you will be familiar with producer and Quentin Tarantino favorite Antony I.

Well, good news! This month, Severin Films is releasing all three terror flicks in Blu-ray/DVD combo packs (as well as the self-explanatory DVD, Ozploitation Trailer Explosion) which »
