Quentin Tarantino Video Essay Asks If Filmmaker Is a Feminist, Unearths Some Surprising Truths — Watch

9 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino has long trafficked in features that exalt — and often twist — the concept of the “strong female character,” from “Jackie Brown” to the “Kill Bill” franchise, “Django Unchained” to “Inglourious Basterds,” and the subject of his stance on feminism has shaped countless discussions about his work.

After the release of his “The Hateful Eight,” which featured Jennifer Jason Leigh’s character getting absolutely wrecked at the hands of a number of men, Tarantino’s treatment of his female characters again became prodigious fodder for the cultural zeitgeist. It’s that topic that is explored in a nifty new video essay, one that comes complete with some surprising answers and insights.

Quentin Tarantino’s 7 Best Scenes As a Director

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Quentin Tarantino’s films are famous for their non-linear narratives, for how they jump around in time like a skipping DVD, sometimes even willing their ways into alternate histories. And yet, despite all of their twisty plotting, his movies are increasingly defined by — and remembered for — self-contained scenes that stretch to the breaking point and seem to become iconic even as you’re first watching them. From the ingeniously knotted “Pulp Fiction” to the bifurcated “Death Proof”; from the sprawling “Kill Bill” (which is divided into 10 discrete chapters), to the snowbound “The Hateful Eight” (which limits itself to two locations and finds Tarantino challenging himself to hold a single note of suspense for hours at a time), these epic stories are shaped around chatty, taut, and indelible sequences that simmer with the potential for sudden acts of violence.

In honor of the filmmaker’s 54th birthday (and with a humble »

‘Into the Badlands’: The Hong Kong Secret That Makes the Show’s Amazing Martial Arts Possible

25 March 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The “Into the Badlands” set is a fascinating aural environment when the show’s epic fights are being filmed.

That’s thanks to the blend of accents amongst the crew — American, English, Irish — as well as the Cantonese instructions being barked out as The Widow (Emily Beecham), Tilda (Ally Ioannides), and their many stunt doubles spin about and spar with each other, filming action so in-your-face that before certain shots, cameramen have to put on lacrosse helmets.

Disney's Mulan Will Be a Girly Martial Arts Movie, Not a Musical

18 March 2017 12:54 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If director Niki Caro gets her way, Disney's latest live-action adaptation of a classic animated movie will be a bit different from recent outings. In a new interview, the filmmaker confirmed that Mulan won't be a musical Ala this weekend's Beauty and the Beast. Instead, it will be a very girly martial arts adventure the likes of which the RZA would be very proud.

Mulan will hit theaters November, 2018. And when it does, it promises to deliver quite a punch. Literally. Niki Caro, best known for her family masterpiece Whale Rider, has some big ideas when it comes to resurrecting the fairy tale Mulan for the big screen. We already know that the cast will be all-asian, as to avoid any whitewash controversy that might come with it. And now we know the movie will be a kid-friendly version of Kill Bill. She says this in a new interview with ScreenCrush courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. »

Feature: Revenge Is A Dish Best Served Cold

10 March 2017 12:15 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

If revenge really is a dish best served cold, then modern cinema is strewn with some brilliantly icy meals, not least of which is Tom Ford’s critically acclaimed potboiler, Nocturnal Animals, available on digital download, Blu-ray and DVD from March 13th courtesy of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Before we get to the fashion icon-come-auteur’s searing second project, though, let’s have a look at some of the best revenge films:

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The Bible

In The Shawshank Redemption, arguably one of the greatest tales of redemption we see Andy Dufresne imprisoned for the murder of his wife and her lover. At the start of Dufresne’s stint, the sadistic Warden Norton tells him that salvation lies within and upon realising Andy’s superior intellect and background in finance, uses him to fiddle his books. Dufresne eventually escapes, however this story wouldn’t be complete without his ultimate »

Lars von Trier talks Uma Thurman, serial killers and Cannes at first press conference since Nazi row

8 March 2017 5:36 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Set report: director and cast discuss Us-set drama The House That Jack Built during Tuesday 7 March press event.

”I chose Matt and I chose Uma because they obviously can’t read,” Lars von Trier says with the hint of a smile.

The Danish director is sitting in a village hall a few kilometres outside the town of Bengtfors in a snow-covered part of Sweden which is standing in for the state of Washington, where his next film, the serial killer-drama The House That Jack Built, is set.

Von Trier is flanked by Matt Dillon and Uma Thurman, two of the main actors in the film, and two of his producers, Louise Vesth from Zentropa and Madeleine Ekman, and they are faced by a large group of journalists, mostly from Scandinavia and some from the rest of Europe.

He continues: ”There were so many people we sent the script to, who said they would do anything to work »

‘Samurai Jack’ Review: Adult Swim Resurrects the Best Samurai of the 21st Century, and It’s Already an Action-Packed Masterpiece

1 March 2017 10:54 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Decades ago, the samurai warrior created a template for the modern action hero, inspiring silent western heroes and gunslinging detectives alike. So it follows that any modern take on the samurai really needs to prove its worth. Quentin Tarantino’s two-part “Kill Bill” charts the history of stylized action from the East to the West, but Genndy Tartakovsky’s “Samurai Jack” fuses them into a spectacular whole. The animated series originally aired on Cartoon Network between 2001 and 2004, but returns as a miniseries this March to conclude the story — and so far, it remains some of the best action-based storytelling out there. Exploiting the pliability of animation to its greatest potential, Tartakovsky transforms his influences into a hugely satisfying formula of his own making, delivering an action-packed masterpiece on par with the best of the genre.

For the uninitiated, the premise of “Samurai Jack” is relatively straightforward: In feudal Japan, a »

Uma Thurman: Turning down Lord of the Rings role was “one of the worst decisions ever made”

22 February 2017 9:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kill Bill star Uma Thurman recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to promote her role in the television series Imposters, but was also asked about the specifics regarding turning down the role of Eowyn in The Lord of the Rings.

“Yes. It was a very long time ago, and I do consider it one of the worst decisions ever made,” said Thurman. “But I had just had my first child, and I just – I don’t know, I was a little housebound… It’s really definitely a regret.”

The role of Eowyn eventually went to Miranda Otto, who can now be seen on television in Fox’s new series 24: Legacy.

Uma Thurman made an appearance on Monday night's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where the host brought up Thurman's missed opportunity to star in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Uma Thurman: Turning Down ‘Lord of the Rings’ Was One of the ‘Worst Decisions Ever Made’

21 February 2017 11:47 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On Monday night’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Uma Thurman revealed she was given the chance to play the role of Eowyn in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy but chose to turn it down.

The role, which eventually went to Miranda Otto, would have given Thurman the chance to play one of the only female characters in the saga, a fierce princess-turned-warrior pining after Viggo Mortensen’s Aragorn in the process of saving her uncle from evil mind control.

“I do consider it one of the worst decisions ever made,” Thurman admitted. The offer came right after the birth of Thurman’s first child and before she starred in Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill.”

“I would have played Eowyn in ‘Lord of the Rings,'” Colbert, a hardcore J. R. R. Tolkien fan, derided.

The Peter Jackson-helmed trilogy went on to make almost $3 billion. “Lord »

Alamo Drafthouse, Kodak Partner on 35Mm Film Celebration (Exclusive)

16 February 2017 9:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

We live in a pixelated world. Much of our day is spent staring at watches, laptops, desktops, iPods, and iPads that offer up digitized video, newsfeeds, and Facebook posts. These pixels are even dominating the biggest screens of all, as more and more movie theaters abandon film for the convenience and cost savings of digital projection. But there remain purists, for whom the flicker and luster of film remains a vital component of the movie-going experience. Quentin Tarantino, for instance, once blasted digital projection, dismissing it as “just television in cinema” and predicting it would lead to the death of movies.

Well the “Pulp Fiction” director and his partisans should mark their calendars. Alamo Drafthouse is partnering with Kodak on the first-ever “Reel Film Day,” a celebration of 35mm film. Both companies say they see the advantages of digitization, but they also want to celebrate the look, flavor, and art of celluloid. »
