Watch: 4-Minute Supercut Highlights Quentin Tarantino’s Use Of Slow Motion

8 April 2016 12:25 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Quentin Tarantino is one thing as a director, he’s a master of style. In fact, certain moments of his films might make you wonder if they exist solely for Tarantino as a director to try something new — though thankfully, Tarantino as a writer manages to make even the most digressive tangents engaging and worthwhile. So it’s no surprise that Qt frequently employs slow motion, and a style of slow motion culled straight from B-movie classics no less, and rather dissimilar to the slowed-down fantastical action we might be more familiar with today. Certainly he is no stranger to slowing down action, especially in his “Kill Bill” films, but where he really seems to relish forcing us to linger is on the violence. Read More: What’s Left? Quentin Tarantino Talks The Remaining Movies He Could Make Before Retirement For those of us that needed a refresher, a new supercut from Jacob T. »

Contest: Win Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ On Blu-Ray

5 April 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Quentin Tarantino’s “The Hateful Eight” is more or less a greatest hits compendium of all the filmmaker’s cinematic affinities: the mistrust and game of show-and-tell featured in “True Romance” and “Inglourious Basterds”; the chamber drama qualities and lack of a true hero in “Reservoir Dogs”; the Western sensibilities of “Django Unchained” and “Kill Bill 2”; and the issues of race that have permeated his pictures throughout his entire career. Read More: Ranked: Quentin Tarantino's 50 Best Characters For “The Hateful Eight,” Tarantino added themes of American identity as well as wintry elements of John Carpenter’s “The Thing” and the musical signature of his frequent composer Ennio Morricone, all shot and presented in glorious 70mm. The film, Tarantino’s eighth, recently hit Blu-Ray and DVD ,and we’ve got copies of the Blu-Ray to give away.

Exclusive: Trailers For Janus Films Re-release Of King Hu's Wuxia Classics 'A Touch Of Zen' And 'Dragon Inn'

4 April 2016 8:53 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Modern marital arts pictures like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," "Hero," "The Grandmaster," and "House Of Flying Daggers" plus films like Quentin Tarantino's homage to the genre "Kill Bill," and the wire work in "The Matrix," can all draw a line back to the films of King Hu. The director combined beautiful imagery with groundbreaking action scenes, creating an oeuvre like no other, and this spring two of his pictures are returning to the big screen. Janus Films will be releasing The Criterion Collection's restoration of 1971's "A Touch Of Zen" and "Dragon Inn." The three hour epic 'Zen' follows Yang (Hsu Feng), a noblewoman and fugitive hiding in a small village, who must escape into the wilderness with a shy scholar and two aides. There, the quartet face a massive group of fighters and are joined by a band of Buddhist monks surprisingly skilled in the art of battle. »

Watch: 6-Minute Video Essay Explores The Power Of The Eyes In Satyajit Ray's 'The Big City'

1 April 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The eyes aren’t just the windows to the soul; they’re the bearer of truth, and the messengers of feelings. It’s no wonder that any director looking for a thoughtful, scrupulous shot focuses there — whether it’s Quentin Tarantino portraying the anger and frustration The Bride (Uma Thurman) feels when she’s being buried alive by Budd (Michael Madsen) in “Kill Bill Vol. 2;” or the subject of a Pixies song, Luis Buñuel’s surrealist masterpiece “Un Chien Andalou.” Read More: The Essentials: Satyajit Ray’s ‘The Apu Trilogy’ Indian director Satyajit Ray used captivating glances to exude emotion in his epic coming-of-age “Apu Trilogy,” as well as in 1963’s “The Big City,” another coming-of-age film of sorts, but this time focusing on a married couple each with their own occupational difficulties. And this video essay from Fandor explores his technique. The entire film is told through the way »

Exclusive: Quentin Tarantino Taped Over the “Hobbling” Scene from Misery in his Video Clerk Days

1 April 2016 6:27 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I don’t think it is a secret that Quentin Tarantino loves his feet. I mean, it is kind of unavoidable. His past films have been littered with female feet in possible sexual fetishism. Even though his latest film, The Hateful Eight, didn’t feature any fancy foot imagery, let’s take a look at some of his previous work before we dive into our Exclusive.

There are examples in Death Proof and Kill Bill as well. However, let’s take a look at the film that Quentin was in where it seemed like his fantasy came true, From Dusk Til Dawn.

I’ve always been curious on what caused his obsession. A few years ago, I heard a rumor that Quentin was a foot guy for a while but then he saw something happen in a film that destroyed him. He stated that when ever he could, he would glorify feet in his films. »

The Hateful Eight

26 March 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Did Quentin Tarantino stumble this time out? His tale of western killers sharing a snowbound cabin builds almost zero suspense, and the verbal excess and violent grossness lack Tarantino's usual clever, wickedly funny edge. And 70mm cooped up in a dim interior? It's A Long Day's Journey into Lincoln Logs. Totally dig Jennifer Jason Leigh and Ennio Morricone, though. The Hateful Eight Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Anchor Bay / Weinstein 2015 / Color / 2.76 widescreen (Ultra Panavision 70) / 187 min. / Street Date March 29, 2016 / 39.99 Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen, James Parks, Dana Gourrier, Zoë Bell, Lee Horsley, Gene Jones, Channing Tatum. Cinematography Robert Richardson Film Editor Fred Raskin Original Music Ennio Morricone Production Design Yohei Taneda Produced by Richard N. Gladstein, Shannon McIntosh, Stacey Sher Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino

Making up the Walking Dead: 'Growing up, I wanted to make monsters'

Starting out as a horror makeup artist? All you need is meat, corn syrup and hair conditioner – Walking Dead gore guru Greg Nicotero shares tips and techniques

What would a zombie who had been half-melted into the ground after a napalm attack look like? Its rotting flesh would be blistered and stretched – like a hot dog that had been left in a microwave too long, says Greg Nicotero, The Walking Dead’s special effects guru and Hollywood’s go-to guy for all things gory.

Creatively cooking up these sorts of scenarios and bringing them to life is all part of his job – and his excitement about it is infectious. “Growing up, I wanted to make monsters,” says the 52-year-old, whose special effects filmography includes Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill, Sin City and Scream.

Exclusive: Pam Grier Gets Ambushed In Clip From Blu-ray Release Of Grindhouse Cult Fave 'Black Mama, White Mama'

21 March 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

You may not have seen "Black Mama, White Mama," but it's likely you've heard it. Quentin Tarantino used "Police Check Point" from the score by Harry Betts in "Kill Bill," but if you want to see the movie that first sparked the director's interest, it's now hitting Blu-ray and we've got an exclusive clip from the release. Starring Pam Grier, and with a story credit belonging to Jonathan Demme, this grindhouse take on "The Defiant Ones" follows Lee (Grier), a tough prostitute and Karen (Margaret Markov), a revolutionary, inmates at a tough women's prison where they almost immediately clash. Packed off to a maximum security facility, their transport is ambushed by Karen's guerrilla friends and the two escape into the Filipino jungle. Chained together and with differing escape plans, their clash intensifies as Lee wants to retrieve a stash of stolen cash to get her off the island and Karen »

But for some, The Hunger Game: Mockingjay Part 2 didn’t deliver the satisfying conclusion that we were all hoping for. […]

Happy Valley series 2 episode 6 review

Happy Valley’s superb second series draws to a dramatic conclusion that reveals how connected its multiple stories really are…

Warning: this review contains spoilers.

Happy Valley’s first series was satisfyingly circular. It started with Catherine Cawood stopping a man set fire to himself and ended with the same. In between it told a grippingly tense story about a police sergeant grandmother taking due revenge on a sadistic misogynistic. Think Kill Bill, if The Bride had ticked all that sword business off her to-do list while banging up scrotes, making packed lunches and putting a hot pot on for tea.

The start and close of series two also had parallels. Alison Garrs shooting her serial-killer son recalled Catherine mercy-killing that dying sheep in episode one. “I don’t think you’d like prison”, Alison had told Daryl, a phrase typical of Happy Valley’s appealingly unshowy, »

Listed: Epic Movie Showdowns

10 March 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This year sees at least two epic showdowns from four mega superheroes.

On March 25th, Batman and Superman have some beef to sort out in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Then on May 6th, Captain America and Iron Man have some irreconcilable differences in Captain America: Civil War. While these characters play together on the same team at one point or another, whether it's Batman and Superman in the Justice League or Captain America and Iron Man in The Avengers, these films will prove that even friends can have some animosity.

That's why we decided it would be a good time to take a look at some of the most epic showdowns in movie history. However, in most cases, these characters are not, never were, and never will be alliances. Cinema has lent us some pretty crazy battles, and we featured the very best in our top ten countdown. »

Review Round-Up: Nina Forever, Camino and The Corpse Of Anna Fritz

7 March 2016 12:30 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Nina Forever: Relationships are complicated, and even when you think you’ve moved on past a former lover, you still carry traces of that person’s influence with you for a while. That’s the theme at the heart of Nina Forever, the darkly comedic feature film debut from Ben and Chris Blaine that follows new couple Holly (Abigail Hardingham) and Rob (Cian Barry) as they contend with the return of Nina (Fiona O’Shaughnessy), Rob’s former girlfriend who was killed during a car accident and decides to pop up during their first time having sex. And that’s only the beginning of the awkwardness that continues to build between the trio throughout Nina Forever.

What I really enjoyed about Nina Forever was the approach that the Blaine Brothers take in tackling their complicated ideas; there are no easy answers here and the way the filmmakers handle topics like obsession, »

Broforce Review

4 March 2016 4:35 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Broforce embraces one mantra of game development that console and PC remasters regularly prove: nostalgia sells. It idolizes the action heroes that made the ‘80s and ‘90s a golden age of practical explosions and one-liners, replicating their antics with a 16-bit visual style that middle-aged gamers surely remember.

Rambo, John McClane, Snake Pliskin, and Robocop are all represented here, but not officially (imagine the licensing costs). Instead, you meet parodies along the lines of Rambro, Mr. Anderbro, and dozens more “please don’t sue us” protagonists. Developer Free Lives roasts the writing in the pun oven, sprinkling the cheesiness on thick.

To demonstrate, Broforce cooks up a stereotypical campaign about Americanizing insurgents. Initially. A cigar-chewing commander sends players to all corners of the globe, where you run, gun, and raise the flag at the end of a level to liberate countries like Veetman and Arstotzka. In other words, you nuke »
