Quentin Tarantino Finally Responds to Harvey Weinstein Sex Scandal

14 October 2017 9:19 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Silence is deafening sometimes, and that's definitely the case when it comes to Quentin Tarantino in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations that have flooded Hollywood this past week. A list actresses and actors have come forward to speak out against Weinstein, all to varying degrees. And some, like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, have faced their own backlash when condemning the man. But Quentin Tarantino has so far stayed silent. Which has left some wondering what he has to hide, if anything, or if he simply doesn't want to hurt his relationship with the embittered producer. Now, the director has sent out a statement in an unusual way, using an actress as his mouthpiece.

People are incredible interested to hear what Quentin Tarantino has to say, as Harvey Weinstein literally made the man's career what it is today. Quentin Tarantino has long called Harvey Weinstein one »

15 Actors Almost Cast as Superman

30 September 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

"It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Sylvester Stallone?!" Christopher Reeve cast such a long shadow after his incredible portrayal of Superman it took years to get another actor into the cape. (And lookalike actor Brandon Routh's performance in Superman Returns was nothing short of homage.) But before Christopher Reeve, and in many developmental stages along the way, under the guidance of directors like Tim Burton, Brett Ratner, and McG, a handful of major movie stars came close to securing the role of DC's Last Son of Krypton. Here, we're looking at 15 actors who were almost Superman.

Paul Newman

Paul Newman, the late screen legend who starred opposite Robert Redford in the cinematic classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, among other notable roles, turned down Superman not once, not twice, but three different times. He was offered the lead role, as well as the roles of Lex Luthor and Superman's dad, »

The 25 Best Female Movie Performances of the 21st Century

22 September 2017 9:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Much has been made about the dearth of strong female roles in contemporary cinema, and the problematic depictions of women in many recent movies, but the past two decades have provided plenty of counterexamples. While the onus is on writers and directors to craft strong female characters, the actresses themselves bring these figures to life, and they’re often the main reason we keep being drawn back to these works.

In no particular order, our favorite — and we’d like to think the best — female performances of the 21st century.

Isabelle Huppert, “Elle

Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle” begins with a laugh that catches in your throat: A wide-eyed cat looks off-screen to the screams of a man and woman in apparent orgiastic bliss. Then comes the cutaway, which reveals a far more nefarious incident: Middle-aged Michéle (Isabelle Huppert), in the process of getting raped by a masked assailant on the floor of her home. »

Interview: Author Joe Ballarini Discusses A Babysitter’S Guide To Monster Hunting and the Upcoming Film Adaptation

19 September 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

If you've read my work on Daily Dead or listened to my ramblings on the Corpse Club podcast, then you might be aware of my deep love for Dance of the Dead, Gregg Bishop's midnight movie masterpiece that blended prom, zombies, and the music of Pat Benatar (via a great cover) into one of the most memorable rentals I ever enjoyed from Blockbuster. When I saw that Joe Ballarini, the screenwriter of Dance of the Dead, had written a new book (for children and adults) called A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting, I knew that I had to talk with him about it, and I recently had the great pleasure of doing just that.

In addition to A Babysitter's Guide to Monster Hunting—the first in a planned three-book series from Katherine Tegen Books (an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers)—Ballarini also discussed his plans for the future installments in »

Movie Review – The Villainess (2017)

15 September 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Villainess, 2017.

Directed by Byung-gil Jung.

Starring Ok-bin Kim, Ha-kyun Shin, Jun Sung, Seo-hyeong Kim, Eun-ji Jo, and Ye-Ji Min.

Synopsis:

A woman assassin leaves a trail of bodies behind her as she seeks revenge.

The Villainess starts off with one hell of a chaotic fight sequence reminiscent to, Kill Bill, The Raid and Hardcore Henry (the entire extended battle takes place from the first person perspective and is all one highly impressive unbroken take), and is violent and visceral to the extreme complete with blades, guns, and blood painting the walls red. Going in blind, I legitimately thought the whole movie would play out this way, but then things shift into a more conventional structure and narrative. Sook-hee is on a warpath of vengeance until she can bring justice to the man that murdered her father in cold blood.

At the same time, a government agency views Sook-hee as »

Film Review: Stephen King’s ‘It’

5 September 2017 11:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Stephen King’s “It” has always been a tough nut to crack. Though the mammoth novel has been reduced to a few indelible images and quotes over the decades — a killer clown, a balloon, “you’ll float too” — King’s story of seven youngsters who come of age while confronting a shape-shifting demonic presence in small-town Maine, then come home as adults to deal with its return, is quite a lot of things. It’s a messy, druggy attempt to distill decades of horror tropes into a chaotic fever dream; a portrait of a fictional town as obsessively mapped as Joyce’s Dublin; a meditation on childhood, trauma, and forgetting; “In Search of Lost Time” bloodied up for the grindhouse.

The second attempt to adapt King’s 1,100-page doorstop for the screen, director Andy Muschietti’s “It” is also a lot of different things. Focusing entirely on the childhood-set portions of King’s book, it »

‘Twin Peaks’ Star on Playing the Series’ Most Mysterious Character and That ’Thrilling’ Finale

4 September 2017 1:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Audrey Horne, one of the most popular “Twin Peaks” characters finally returned for the Showtime revival, fans were left with more questions than before. The scenes between Audrey (Sherilyn Fenn) and a man named Charlie (Clark Middleton) were baffling, claustrophobic and antagonistic, at the very least.

In the scenes that spanned four episodes, Audrey seemed obsessed with going to the Roadhouse to find her lover named Billy, but her husband Charlie preferred to stay in and finish his paperwork, since it’s late and he’s already sleepy. The bickering usually alternated between Audrey insulting Charlie and urging him to put on his coat in order to go out to the Roadhouse.

Celebrating 45 Years of King Boxer

4 September 2017 5:41 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Craig Lines Sep 6, 2017

45 years on, we revisit King Boxer, and find a genuinely great martial arts movie...

Asian martial arts are now deeply embedded in western pop culture, but this wasn’t always the case. In fact, it wasn’t really until the early 1970s that they made the transition into the mainstream, thanks in no small part to the release of a film called King Boxer. Of course, nothing occurs in a vacuum. By the late 1960s, martial arts were already being taught more widely in the west. Bruce Lee was making waves with his role in The Green Hornet (although his martial arts films, while huge in Hong Kong, were yet to break the Us market). James Bond had a ninja encounter in 1967’s You Only Live Twice. Kung Fu, the seminal ABC series starring David Carradine, hit TVs across America in 1972. The west was primed and ready »

The 25 Best Performances Not Nominated for an Oscar in the 21st Century, From Kristen Stewart to Andy Serkis

2 September 2017 6:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Awards aren’t everything, but no one ever complained about having their hard work recognized. Consider that the impetus behind this list, which looks beyond awards season to shine a spotlight on the performances that have most affected us — if not necessarily the Academy — over the last 17 years. Some were contenders that got snubbed, while others were too out-there to ever be considered; all are worth praising.

Many others were and are, too — so many, in fact, that 25 spots weren’t enough for them all. Consider Denis Lavant’s bravura turn in “Holy Motors” or Maggie Gyllenhaal’s brilliant work in “Secretary,” among so many others, and remember that the first nine months of every moviegoing year feature plenty of performances worth remembering.

25. Jeon Do-yeon, “Secret Sunshine”

10+ Years Later: Kill Bill Represents Peak Tarantino

1 September 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

All of Tarantino’s work has an air of overt respect for filmmaking. I think that’s why we let him get away with such cinematic bombasity (and cruelty) - because everything he does seems to so sincerely honor the legacy of cinema, in all its regional and aesthetic diversity, even as he utterly reinvents much of it. This convergence of reverence and creativity - a symbiosis that defines him as an auteur - is nowhere more concentrated and original than in Kill Bill. As he has aged he’s matured, and with experience he has developed in all facets of his film-making, but returning to Kill Bill after a long break, with the hindsight of all his subsequent work, it’s clear to me that Kill Bill is...

The unmade Snake Plissken project

30 August 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Padraig Cotter Sep 4, 2017

Corey Mitchel talks us through the unmade Snake Plissken anime follow-on from Escape From L.A....

The last time Snake Plissken escaped on the big screen was 1996’s Escape From L.A., and while that movie had moments it failed to connect with viewers the way Snake’s original adventure did. Escape From New York remains a cult classic for many reasons: its grim depiction of the future, John Carpenter’s taut storytelling, the moody score and the memorable cast of characters, led by Kurt Russell’s insanely cool outlaw Snake Plissken.

Despite being an amoral anti-hero with few redeemable qualities, Snake holds a special place in the heart of genre fans. Sadly Escape From L.A.’s financial failure and tepid response pretty much doomed any further outings with Russell playing the role, and the actor has since ruled out playing an aged version of Snake.

24 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Korean action cinema bursts through to new horizons in the hyperkinetic pulp blade and bullet ballet The Villainess. Equal parts Kill Bill, Nikita, John Wick, Hardcore Henry and Hk-era John Woo, the second film from Confession of Murder director Jung Byung-gil is an inspired but exhausting entry. Sook-hee was brought up to become an assassin by Korean-Chinese criminals but after escaping her situation she is recruited by South Korea's intelligence agency to become a sleeper agent for ten years, after which she can gain her freedom. She thus assumes the role of a theater actress until two men begin to disrupt her life, one from the past and one from the present. With ambitious set pieces filmed in several unusual ways, Jung and his team...
