Quentin Tarantino -- 'Kill Bill' Is Beneath Me (Photo)

21 July 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Quentin Tarantino had his "Kill Bill" kicks on full display Thursday afternoon for a lunch meeting at the Chateau Marmont. Feet are a well-known fetish of the legendary director -- but his 'Kb' shoes still aren't as cool as the pair he wore for his cement print at the Chinese Theatre. Read more »

Quentin Tarantino’s Retirement Fallacy

14 July 2016 10:44 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

We’re skeptical of his 10 films-and-done plan.

Quentin Tarantino has insisted for years now that he will make only ten films. The auteur director repeated these claims last weekend at the Jerusalem Film Festival. Tarantino had been invited to introduce Pulp Fiction and discuss his career as part of the Festival’s opening ceremonies.

During the wide ranging talk at the Jerusalem Cinematheque, Tarantino repeated his previous claims that he would be retiring after his tenth film. It must be noted, however, that he does count both Kill Bill films as one film; this leaves only two films remaining. In prior conversations about his imminent retirement, Tarantino said that he did not want to be an “old man filmmaker,” and that he does not want to “stay on the stage until people beg him to get off.” He has stated multiple times in the past that the quality of a director’s work declines over time and »

Quentin Tarantino Says to Expect Just Two More Films

12 July 2016 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jerusalem — “Shabbat Shalom,” shouted Quentin Tarantino as he burst into the stage of the jam-packed Jerusalem Cinematheque to present “Pulp Fiction” and chat about his career, his relationship with actors and what keeps him going. The director, who was the subject of an homage during the festival’s opening ceremony July 7, delivered a humor-filled talk that underscored his passion and toughness. Here’s what he said about critics, dialogue and casting, among other topics.

About his claim that he only wants to make 10 movies:

“I’m planning on stopping at 10. So it’ll be two more. Even if at 75, if I have this other story to tell, it would still kind of work because that would make those 10. They would be there and that would be that. But the one he did when he was an old f—ing man, that geriatric one exists completely on its own in the »

Quentin Tarantino Reaffirms Retirement Pledge, Talks Almost Pulling Plug On Inglorious Basterds

11 July 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Quentin Tarantino may not be the most prolific filmmaker in the business — eight mainline feature films in almost 25 years, if you lump Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 together — but such is the legacy of the esteemed director that Tarantino is never too far from cinematic conversation.

That proved to be the case at the Jerusalem Film Festival, where the helmer was at hand to discuss his most recent feature, The Hateful Eight, along with his reasons for almost pulling the plug on Inglorious Basterds.

But first, Tarantino once again reaffirmed his plans to call time on his decorated career behind the lens after his tenth feature film, meaning there’s still room for two movies beyond The Hateful Eight. Early reports may have questioned the filmmaker’s early retirement, but Tarantino remains staunch, though he did tease that he could well return to the movie world at, say, 75 with “another story to tell. »

Which Quentin Tarantino Character Is the Director's Favorite?

11 July 2016 8:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

In his long and storied career that has already spanned three decades, Quentin Tarantino has directed 7 original movies and one novel adaptation. He's created a number of iconic, quotable characters. And any true fan would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Usually artists never cite their own personal preferences, stating loudly that each one is like a child. Impossible to choose which one gets top billing. But not Quentin. While answering questions about his past movies, he didn't hesitate to declare a favorite character. Though, his answer might not surprise you too much. He says this.

"[Hans] Landa is the best character I've ever written and maybe the best I ever will write.&#160I didn't realize [when I was first writing him] that he was a linguistic genius. He's probably one of the only Nazis in history who could speak perfect Yiddish."

Colonel Hans Landa is the main bad guy in 2009's Inglourious Basterds. He is »

How Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA Became a Kung-Fu Fanatic

5 July 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmaker and hip-hop legend RZA made dreams come true for kung-fu fans on a recent Saturday night by programming a double feature of classic martial arts films “Five Element Ninjas” and “House of Traps” at New York’s Metrograph theater.

The original member of the Wu-Tang Clan made three appearances at the event and introduced the 1982 kung-fu titles, both of which were directed by prolific martial arts film director Cheh Chang and produced by Hong Kong’s legendary production company Shaw Brothers. “Five Element Ninjas” follows a young martial artist seeking revenge against the ninja who killed his teacher and brethren, while “House of Traps” centers on a team of skilled fighters making their way through a house rigged with deadly traps.

Both sold out screenings were packed with kung-fu cinema devotees, many of whom felt compelled to express their love for the genre during a Q&A with RZA, »

10 Best Movies and TV Shows to Stream in July

1 July 2016 6:53 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

July: a time for backyard cookouts, fireworks displays, and tipsy, tearful declarations of how you — sniff — just love America so much. And streaming addicts will have plenty to salute in the month to come, whether that's Netflix trotting out a new Goonies-style mystery series and reviving a certified cult animation sensation, or tempting new film options from the folks at Amazon Prime and Hulu.

The Academy has invited 683 new members to join their ranks

30 June 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega, »

Real-Life Bears and Advice From Tarantino: 7 Of The Craziest Stories From Behind The Scenes Of ‘Swiss Army Man’

21 June 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Swiss Army Man” opens in limited release this Friday and nationwide on July 1. You’ve likely heard a lot about the film already, from the walkouts at its first Sundance screening all the way to star Daniel Radcliffe touring NYC with his stunt dummy.

Yet in a month of poorly reviewed sequels, “Swiss Army Man” stands alone as a full, pure, emotional experience. The film’s co-directors, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, combine a sense of absurdity and seemingly low-hanging-fruit fart jokes with pathos and soul. They have created a new, magical thing.

This week, IndieWire’s deputy editor and chief critic Eric Kohn sat down with the Daniels, as they liked to be called, at a panel at New York City’s Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center. Showing the audience clips from the film and their previous music videos, the Daniels talked about the collision of self-awareness and genuine »

Celebrity Apprentice Contestant Vivica A. Fox Slams Donald Trump: ''He's Turned Into an Absolute Jerk''

14 June 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Vivica A. Fox admits she used to like Donald Trump. She says he was an "absolute gentleman" when she was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice. But not anymore. "He's turned into an absolute jerk and I mince no words when I say that," Fox told me earlier today while promoting Independence Day: Resurgence. "The negativity that spews out of him on a constant basis, he has brought reality [television] to politics and I've never seen it go to such a low point that it's went to." In other words, Fox is supporting Hillary Clinton for president. "We have to continue that path of progress. Barack Obama is grace under fire," the Kill Bill actress said. »

Splash remake is on the way, says producer Brian Grazer

7 June 2016 10:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In an interview with CNBC, producer Brian Grazer (Inferno, A Beautiful Mind) has said that one his earliest films Splash is getting the remake treatment.

Released in 1984, Splash was Grazer and producing partner Ron Howard’s first significant hit, with Howard also directing. Tom Hanks (A Hologram for the King) and Darryl Hannah (Kill Bill) starred in the film.

In the interview, attention turned to Grazer’s original treatment of the film, which was entitled Wet and was told from the mermaid’s point of view rather than the human man’s, played by Hanks.

“I’m actually gonna do Splash today,” said Grazer. “I’m actually going to do it from the point of view of… I can’t say anything about it. There’s a movie star involved, I haven’t announced it. We’re going to do a version of [Wet], but I can’t tell you the twist. »

Quentin Tarantino’s Music Supervisor Mary Ramos on Telling Stories Through Music

3 June 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

On Saturday Quentin Tarantino’s music supervisor, Mary Ramos, will be a keynote speaker at music biz event Midem in Cannes, France. Variety spoke to her about her 23-year career, including her work on Tarantino’s movies — from “Pulp Fiction” to “The Hateful Eight” — and other pics, such as this year’s best-picture Oscar-winner “Spotlight.”

So is Tarantino different from other directors? “Every director I work with has their own unique storytelling style. They’ll tell a story filtered through what’s important to them. It’s my job to help them tell their story through music,” Ramos says.

“What makes Quentin standout is his bold use of music. Often times it is a main character in his movies. The reason is the referential element to his storytelling. We respond to Quentin because music is so much in the forefront and it’s such a bold use, like using David Bowie »

Joshua Reviews Na Hong-jin’s The Wailing [Theatrical Review]

2 June 2016 7:17 AM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

It’s not every day that a film premieres at a prestigious, iconic film festival like Cannes, only to hit theaters within weeks of its debut. But then again, The Wailing isn’t an everyday feature film.

Hitting theaters this week from the equally singular distributors Well Go USA, The Wailing is the latest film from beloved Korean director Na Hong-jin (The Chaser, The Yellow Sea). An esoteric thriller even by Cannes standards, the 156 minute film opens with a face that’s going to be familiar to many fans of world cinema, Kunimura Jun. Jun, best known for films ranging from Audition to Kill Bill, is in rare form here however, as a mysterious newcomer to a small South Korean village, Goksung. Simply, and startlingly, known as “The Jap” to locales, his arrival brings with it a wave of violence and death, sparked by an illness that causes many natives »

Fantaspoa 2016 Interview: Brian Trenchard-Smith On Turkey Shoot And Dead End Drive-in

25 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Fantaspoa’s tradition of paying homage to living legends of genre cinema, such as Lloyd Kaufman, Richard Stanley and Fabio Frizzi, continues in 2016 with a mini retrospective dedicated to fearless filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith, key figure of the so-called Ozploitation subgenre. In part thanks to the likes of Mark Hartley, director of the Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! documentary, and Quentin Tarantino, who dedicated a Kill Bill screening in Australia to Trenchard-Smith, new generations are learning about the importance of this crazy wave of Australian cinema, which even had a representative this year at the Academy Awards in the form of George Miller and his brilliant Mad Max: Fury Road. In conversation with Trenchard-Smith, this is what he had to say about...
