Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) - News Poster

Election

We’ve all met Tracy Flick — the eager-beaver student that charms the right teachers, wins all the awards and corners the big scholarships. Alexander Payne’s witty, perceptive look at High School shows the predicament of a model teacher who can’t help but sabotage a pupil’s run for class president. Reese Witherspoon’s wholly original characterization scores big, and Matthew Broderick plays what is probably his best screen role.

Harvey Weinstein and Uma Thurman At the Kill Bill: Volume 2 premier in 2004.

There are no more pleasant words, if there were ever any to begin with, between Harvey Weinstein and Uma Thurman. As you can note from this picture of the two of them at the Kill Bill: Vol. 2 premier in 2004 she appears to be less than thrilled by his touch despite her smile. Sorry folks, you can spin it any way you want to, but a clenched fist such as that when someone’s touching you doesn’t signify that they’re liking it all that much. Plus, Harvey looks like he has a pretty firm grip on her wrists and might

‘Superman’ Movies Ranked from Worst to Best

Amongst the total tonnage of witty exchanges and cultural criticisms that have denoted the oeuvre of Quentin Tarantino, it’s not exactly surprising that David Carradine’s speech about Superman in Kill Bill: Vol. 2 sticks out. Outside of the skeptical perspective of Mr. Tarantino, the character of Superman is largely seen as a symbol of America’s promise, a summation of our greatest faiths and toils to create a world free from murder, crime, greed, and intimidation, along with all other sorts of repression, corruption, and death. Where Batman is the symbol of the wealthy as civil-justice idealists, …

Twin Peaks' Lingering Audrey Mystery: 'Husband' Clark Middleton Weighs In

Twin Peaks' Lingering Audrey Mystery: 'Husband' Clark Middleton Weighs In
As Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival came to a close, a key player was conspicuously Mia: Audrey Horne, who last was seen darting across the roadhouse dance floor, to husband Charlie, only to suddenly find herself staring into a mirror, in what appeared to be a pristine hospital setting.

The startling switch-up seemed to confirm, as many had theorized, that Audrey’s reality, chronicled in just a handful of scenes, was anything but. And that Charlie, played by Clark Middleton, perhaps wasn’t her husband, or even real.

Top Ridiculous Scenes In Movies

Some movies have been accused of stretching reality in order to keep their stories 'flowing', with viewers usually forced to suspend their disbelief. Then there are those moments when we admit there are plot devices in some serious films that are just plain ridiculous including "Kill Bill: Vol. 2", "Face/Off", "Run Lola Run", "The Untouchables" and "Rocky":

"Kill Bill: Vol. 2"

In writer/director Quentin Tarantino's 2004 revenge action thriller, 'Beatrice' (Uma Thurman) aka 'The Bride' embarks on a slice 'n dice rampage, to take out the 'Deadly Vipers' gang of killers that left her for dead on her wedding day.

Unfortunately her quest is near-terminated by 'Budd', the brother of 'Bill'  who shoots her in the chest and, with the help of 'Elle Driver', buries Bea in a coffin - alive.

Breaking News: Blumhouse & Miramax are Partnering with Malek Akkad & John Carpenter on the next Halloween

Some days, I really have to pinch myself, because getting the opportunity to be at tonight’s Halloween announcement is easily one of the coolest moments I’ve had in the seven years I’ve lived in California.

Last week, I received a mysterious call from Josh Raffel at Blumhouse Productions, who invited me to a secretive event to be held tonight, May 23rd, and other than providing me with a time, that’s all the information I was given. Once I arrived tonight, along with a select group of journalists, the mystery was finally revealed with the announcement of a new partnership behind a brand new Halloween, which is bringing together Miramax, Blumhouse Productions, Trancas International’s Malek Akkad (longtime producer of the Halloween franchise), as well as legendary Master of Horror John Carpenter in an executive producer role for the film.

25 great action films that are 90 minutes or under

facebook

twitter

google+

Want a quality action film, but you only have an hour and a half? Step this way...

Looking back over the genre, action films definitely haven’t suffered from the trend to make everything longer. They’ve always been pretty long, regularly clocking in at over two hours. Perhaps because of all the slo-mo? But while the sweet spot for action classics seems to be the 100-110 minute mark, there are those that have cut the genre right down to basics, and succeeded all the more for it.

Below is my pick of 25 great action films 90 minutes or under. Even more so than other genres, action crosses many other films - picking a pure ‘action’ flick is all but impossible. So below I’ve chosen films that retain action sequences as their main narrative device, and keep the action at the heart of the movie, rather than as a extra.

Where You'd Heard Oscar Nominee Ennio Morricone's Music Before The Hateful Eight

Where You'd Heard Oscar Nominee Ennio Morricone's Music Before The Hateful Eight
Well, more like, where haven't you heard it? The 87-year-old Ennio Morricone, who this year is nominated for his sixth Academy Award, is far from just being Quentin Tarantino's favorite composer ever: He's one of the most influential composers in modern cinema and maybe 20th-century music as a whole. As of this writing, Morricone is credited as a composer on 527 works at IMDb.com. Morricone played trumpet in jazz bands in the 1950s and eventually became a studio arranger for RCA. He achieved international fame with compositions for Sergio Leone's 1960s string of so-called "Spaghetti Westerns," including the Clint Eastwood vehicle The Good,

Samuel L Jackson as Major Marquis Warren in The Hateful Eight

Before Harvey Weinstein introduced "Quentin Tarantino's leading lady, Uma Thurman" at The Hateful Eight brunch with Jennifer Jason Leigh and Walton Goggins, I spoke with Samuel L Jackson on John Huston's The Unforgiven with Burt Lancaster, Audie Murphy and Audrey Hepburn and he charmingly reminded me of his evil character as the power behind Leonardo DiCaprio's throne in Django Unchained. Thurman and Jackson were in Pulp Fiction together, as was Tim Roth and she remembers the meeting that eventually led to Kill Bill: Vol. 1 and Kill Bill: Vol. 2. Jackson also starred in Jackie Brown and was the narrator in Inglourious Basterds.

Harvey Weinstein Talks ‘Hateful Eight’: ‘Star Wars’ Took a Bite Out of Box Office

Harvey Weinstein Talks ‘Hateful Eight’: ‘Star Wars’ Took a Bite Out of Box Office
Updated: “The Hateful Eight” earned a solid $16.2 million in its first weekend of wide release, but the reception for the blood-drenched film pales in comparison to director Quentin Tarantino’s previous efforts.

In fact, that stands the lowest result for one of the director’s solo efforts since “Jackie Brown” kicked off to $9.3 million in 1997. It trails the debuts of “Inglourious Basterds” ($38 million), “Django Unchained” ($30.1 million), “Kill Bill: Vol.1” ($22.1 million) and “Kill Bill: Vol. 2” ($25.1 million).

Harvey Weinstein, the indie mogul who has fielded every one of Tarantino’s releases, took umbrage with an earlier version of this article, calling Variety to press his case that the piece did not fully account for the box office juggernaut that is “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The seventh film in the science-fiction franchise has dominated ticket sales, racking up more than $740 million domestically in its first three weeks of release.

Quentin Tarantino Updates on 'Kill Bill 3': 'I Am Talking to Uma About It'

Here comes The Bride ... again? It has been more than a decade since Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman collaborated for the two-part martial arts epic, "Kill Bill: Vol 1" (2003) and "Kill Bill: Vol. 2" (2004). What about Vol. 3? Quentin has hemmed and hawed about it for a while now, saying back in 2009 that he planned to make "Kill Bill 3" in "couple years." Then again, back in 2013 he said he doesn't think about "Kill Bill 3" that much at all.

But when Variety recently asked if "Kill Bill 3" was still a possibility, Qt gave a hopeful answer:

I'm not committing to it, but I wouldn't be surprised if The Bride made one more appearance before the whole thing is said and done. I am talking to Uma about it just a little bit. Some of the stuff that I'd written that never made it into the movie that maybe I could use."

Quentin Tarantino Reveals Plans for ‘Kill Bill 3’ (Video)
It’s been 11 years since Uma Thurman’s “Kill Bill” heroine last graced the big screen and 12 years since The Bride first fought her way to audience’s hearts. But she’s not dead yet.

Director Quentin Tarantino told Variety that “Kill Bill 3” is still a possibility.

“I’m not committing to it, but I wouldn’t be surprised if The Bride made one more appearance before the whole thing is said and done,” he said during a recent interview as part of our “Contenders Conversations” series. “I am talking to Uma about it just a little bit. Some of the stuff that I’d written that never made it into the movie that maybe I could use.”

Although Tarantino is now looking forward to catching up with Sofie Fatale, Elle Driver and other characters, he wasn’t initially interested in writing or helming a third installment: “I felt I

‘Hateful Eight’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Says He’s the Base in Quentin Tarantino’s Bouillabaisse

‘Hateful Eight’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Says He’s the Base in Quentin Tarantino’s Bouillabaisse
A version of this story originally appeared in the Nominations/SAG/Golden Globes issue of TheWrap magazine. “The Hateful Eight” is the sixth movie Samuel L. Jackson has made with Quentin Tarantino, starting with his Oscar-nominated role in “Pulp Fiction” and continuing through “Jackie Brown,” “Kill Bill: Vol. 2,” “Django Unchained” and a voiceover role in “Inglourious Basterds.” The 67-year-old actor is essentially Tarantino’s comrade-in-arms, with his role as a mysterious bounty hunter giving him another opportunity to spew fast-paced dialogue and take part in bloodshed (Warning: Slight spoiler below.)

Iran’s Film Industry Hopes Nuclear Deal Will Help Open Up Biz Internationally

Iran’s Film Industry Hopes Nuclear Deal Will Help Open Up Biz Internationally
Will the Iran nuclear deal energize the country’s filmmakers and open up the Iranian film industry internationally?

Now that the landmark accord between Iran and the U.S., Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia has been officially adopted, it’s likely that economic sanctions against Iran will be lifted. That may even open roads for foreign film companies, including the Hollywood studios, into a country where more than half of the 81 million citizens are under 30.

For the U.S. film industry, it was never illegal for an Iranian national to acquire an American movie and show it, but U.S. distributors nevertheless have been subject to restrictions on doing business in the Middle Eastern nation.

“We are not allowed to invest in distribution or promotion on a film, which you would normally do, which makes (such an investment) not a very interesting proposition,” says Chris Marcich, president of international for the Motion Picture Assn.
