Twilight, Harry Potter and The Hunger Games have also asked us to pay more for the same amount of story
"This is one for the fans!" screamed Quentin Tarantino in self-congratulatory mode, during a 2001 interview on the subject of his forthcoming samurai epic Kill Bill. The film was set to compensate loyal followers for years of creative inertia, so it seemed more than a little odd when he later split the movie in two at the behest of its producers. His beloved fans would now be expected to pay for two separate tickets and wait an extra six months to see Bill meet his maker, and all to ensure a larger box office take for backers Miramax Films. The reaction was far from appreciative.
Fast-forward a decade and last year's announcement that The Hobbit – just 310 pages long in book form – would be stretched across three lengthy epics (1) was met with »

Starring Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill stunt double Zoe Bell (Whip It), the film focuses on a group of abducted women who are forced to fight to the death against each other, for the pure satisfaction of some mysterious spectators. Bell co-stars alongside Rachel Nichols (Criminal Minds), Tracie Thoms (Looper), Sherilyn Fenn (Gilmore Girls), Doug Jones (Hellboy), Bruce Thomas (Kyle Xy), Bailey Anne Borders (The Change-up), Rebecca Marshall (Two And A Half Men), Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena: Warrior Princess) and Allene Quincy (All My Children).
Directed by Josh C. Waller (McCanick), Raze premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival and the Chicago International Film Festival. No word as of yet of a UK release date. You can watch the trailer here.

Everybody is kung-fu fighting for sure, but it takes more than that to make a great martial arts movie. The Guardian and Observer critics pick the 10 finest ever made
• Top 10 movie adaptations
• Top 10 animated movies
• Top 10 silent movies
• Top 10 sports movies
• Top 10 film noir
• Top 10 musicals
• More Guardian and Observer critics' top 10s
The film that kick-started Hong Kong cinema's kung-fu renaissance and launched Jet Li towards a future of substandard western action movies. Its subject was already well known to local audiences: Wong Fei-hung was a real person: a turn-of-the-century martial arts master and healer who's become something of a folk hero. Like Sherlock Holmes or Robin Hood, he'd been portrayed many times before. Jackie Chan played him in Drunken Master, and a long-running Wong Fei-hung film series during the 1950s and 60s gave roles to the fathers of Bruce Lee and Yuen Wo-ping, »
Once Upon a Time, in the Digital Age…: Chen’s Latest a Message Heavy Oddity
A critique of the hounding one sidedness of the omnipresent media mixed with a heavy swirl of romance and melodrama dictates Chen Kaige’s latest feature, Caught in the Web, an oddly flat critique of the life and times in which we live, especially considering the controversy courting director’s past work, including his much hailed Farewell, My Concubine (1993). Despite dealing with modern issues of modern technological advances further mutating and bastardizing notions of journalism in a sensational driven news medium, Kaige’s film peculiarly feels out of touch, a generational rift in attitude and communication, or something that thinks it’s a bright critique of “the youth today” in a world still spinning swiftly out of control. While performances and visual aesthetics are engaging, there’s a definite shortage of narrative cohesiveness, and »

The "From Dusk Till Dawn" TV series has a lot of things going for it, whether or not you're a fan of the premise. It's got director Robert Rodruigez very involved, Don Johnson reprising his role as Earl McGraw and a strong cast including DJ Cotrona, Wilder Valderama and Robert Patrick. Now has one more exciting element to sweeten the deal as well.
Texas Monthly (via /Film) first noticed that a structure very familiar to fans of Quentin Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction" had popped up in Austin, Texas: a real-life Big Kahuna Burger. Rodriguez answered the question about the building's presence himself on Twitter.
"'That's one tasty burger.' #FromDuskTillDawn only on the @Elreynetwork," he posts.
So that means there's at least one connection to the world of Tarantino's movies in the "From Dusk Till Dawn" series. That shouldn't come as a surprise to fans, though. The way that Tarantino's »

Motorbike chases are awesome. They are the quintessential action piece. They represent speed, power, and individuality. When we see a motorcycle, we see the rider as a cool, lone hero or heroine. We have to think only of certain pop culture icons and their motorcycles to get the picture – we can all remember the image of The Bride and her yellow Kawasaki in Kill Bill, Keira Knightley atop the sleek Ducati in the Chanel advert and Jack Nicholson riding his chopper in Easy Rider. These examples are memorable yet don’t even feature a chase. The motorcycle alone is a symbolic machine we can all admire. So if we add a chase to the equation, we’re given a fast, cool and symbolic piece of cinema – a two wheeled slice of awesome pie.
Chase scenes in films often stand out as they provide audiences with a breath-taking spectacle. The most common type of chase, »

Director of witty French comedy-thrillers
Since the dawn of cinema, France has simultaneously and uninterruptedly produced good mainstream movies and arthouse films. Georges Lautner, who has died aged 87, unabashedly claimed that the almost 50 films he directed from 1958 to 1992 belong to the former category. Lautner's mainly cops-and-robbers movies were among the most popular films ever made in France.
"I didn't want glory or to make masterpieces but popular films that would please the greatest number," he once explained. "International recognition didn't interest me. I was passionate at what I did with my faithful team. We made the films we wanted as quickly as possible. But with time, my commercial films appear almost intellectual."
Lautner's underestimated films were never invited to Cannes until, in 2012, the festival put together a belated "Homage to Georges Lautner". His death prompted President François Hollande to declare that his films had "become part of the cinematic heritage »

Japan, 1915, the northern island of Hokkaidō. In the midst of the cold harsh winter, disaster strikes when a giant bear attacks: killing the man instantly, but taking the woman with him for some tasty dining later on. It is Red Spots, the infamous bear that is known for eating only women. He has already killed more than 10 females and is terrorizing the small villages on the island. For a long time, bear hunters have tried to kill him, but none of them have succeed. Enter hunter Eiji (Hiroyuki Sanada), who joins a group of fellow hunters to hunt down and kill it. While tracking the bear’s trail, he encounters a woman from his past (Mika Muramatsu) who has her own score to settle with the ruthless animal. »
With his last few films Quentin Tarantino has branched out from the crime / gangster genre where he made his name, tackling martial arts (Kill Bill), World War II (Inglourious Basterds) and the Old West (Django Unchained). However, appearing on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last night, Tarantino has revealed that he's set to stick with the Western for his next project, although he wasn't giving much (i.e. nothing) away about his plans to revisit the genre.
"I can't talk that much about it but I will say one thing," Tarantino told talk show host Leno. "I haven't told anyone about this publicly, but I will say the genre. It's a western. It's not a Django sequel, but it's another Western. I had so much fun doing Django and I love westerns so much, that after I taught myself how to make one, it's like 'Ok, now let me »

Speaking this week as a guest on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Tarantino talked a little about his next project, revealing that it will be another Western, but it won’t be a sequel to Django Unchained.
“I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a Western… I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘Ok! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.’”
This comes as a bit of a shame to anyone still quietly hoping (against hope) that Tarantino might return to the world of the Bride for Kill Bill Volume 3.

Tarantino said on 'The Tonight Show With Jay Leno' show that he hasn't told anyone this publicly but he will say that the genre of his next film is definitely western, the Independent reported.
The 50-year-old director said that after Django Unchained, he taught himself how to make another one.
The 'Kill Bill' director added that his latest film wouldn't be a sequel to his Oscar winning film. (Ani) »

Jennifer Lawrence plays a young woman who is not defined by her relationship to men, and who is bringing down the system
All hail Katniss Everdeen of The Hunger Games trilogy. If you are the mother of a pre-teen girl, you will know the whispered relief around these films. "About time. Go!" If you would like your teenage daughter to see something other than the underclass sobbing on a crass talent show, orange twentysomethings Botoxing themselves, or girls who are just "naturally thin" and who giggle when their clothes just drop off, then you will already know about them. If, like me, you simply would like to see a young woman not defined by her relationship to men, crack open the pick 'n' mix.
