The Lesson Quentin Tarantino Learned From Grindhouse's Failure

24 August 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Quentin Tarantino has experienced tremendous success throughout his entire career, but there is one notable title on his resume that didn.t go as planned at the box office. When released in 2007, the double-feature Grindhouse wound up being unable to find an audience, despite a large number of big names attached to it. Obviously Tarantino has bounced back in a big way since then, but he did take one very important lesson from the experience: he can.t expect the audience to go along with him on every single idea. The filmmaker is currently hard at work putting together his next big feature, The Hateful Eight, but took time out of his busy schedule to sit down for a lengthy interview with Vulture, and it was actually while talking about his greatest successes that Tarantino began to talk about his greatest failure. Asked if the big box office takes for »

Quentin Tarantino thinks Wes Craven held Scream back from greatness: 'He was the iron chain'

24 August 2015 1:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scream might be seen as a '90s horror classic, but Quentin Tarantino thinks he could've done a better job than the film's director Wes Craven.

In a wide-ranging interview with Vulture, Tarantino addressed his aversion to becoming a franchise director for hire, but revealed that he was interested in putting his own stamp on Kevin Williamson's Scream script in the '90s.

"I could have imagined doing the first Scream. The Weinsteins were trying to get Robert Rodriguez to do it," he said.

"I don't even think they thought I would be interested. I actually didn't care for Wes Craven's direction of it. I thought he was the iron chain attached to its ankle that kept it earthbound and stopped it from going to the moon."

The Django Unchained director also admitted that he turned down the chance to make high-profile blockbusters Men in Black and Speed »

20 Best Sound On Sight Podcast Episodes

23 August 2015 12:36 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A while back, when we released the 400th episode of the Sound On Sight podcast, a few close friends and longtime listeners requested we compile a list of our favorite shows we recorded over the years. Now that the podcast has officially come to an end, I decided to finally set aside some time in my schedule and give them what they want. Initially, I set out to pick ten, but after 500 recordings and 8 long years, it was simply too hard to choose so few, so I opted for 20 instead. In selecting these episodes, I tried to show the wide range of genres we covered over the years, including Spaghetti Westerns, Italian Horror, Southern Gothic, underground cult, family friendly, foreign language and even Hollywood classics. We’ve been blessed with several guest hosts and interviews with many filmmakers including genre legends George A. Romero and John Landis, to name a few. »

Interview with 'Lamb Feed' Director Michael S. Rodriguez

5 August 2015 12:02 AM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

Jonathan Weichsel

MoreHorror.com

Michael S. Rodriguez is the director of the twenty-seven minute short Lamb Feed and the thirty minute short Night of the Sea Monkey. I sat down and interviewed him about his work.

Jw: I reached out to you to watch your films after you wished me happy birthday on Facebook, because I enjoyed Meghan Chadeayne's performance in Naked Zombie Girl, which I caught at Beyond The Beaten Path, and I saw you had directed a short starring her, Lamb Feed, and I was interested in seeing what else she has done. So I am wondering, what is it like working with Meghan? What is it that attracts you to her work?

Mr: Along with being close personal friends we are also business partners and I find Meg to be a completely focused professional that is an absolute delight to work with. When I call action »

30 July 2015 7:04 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The first season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series was full of unexpected twists, making the show stand on its own, venturing far off from the Robert Rodriguez film it was based on. It’s was definitely an interesting debut season,which from we were recently sent via El Rey, will be taken into even crazier places when the show returns for its second season on August 25th.

Returning this season are stars D.J. Cotrona (G.I. Joe: Retaliation); Zane Holtz (7 Minutes, The Perks of Being a Wallflower); Jesse Garcia (Quinceañera, “Sons of Anarchy“); Eiza González (“Amores Verdaderos“); Wilmer Valderrama (“That ’70s Show,” To Whom It May Concern); Madison Davenport (Noah, “Shameless“); Brandon Soo Hoo (Tropic Thunder, Ender’s Game, Incredible Crew) and Jake Busey (Contact).

Quentin Tarantino Takes 'The Hateful Eight' to Comic-Con (Panel Video)

17 July 2015 2:26 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Every time Quentin Tarantino makes another idiosyncratic movie, I think, "this time, it will just be for the cinephile crowd." And each time I have been wrong--except for his contribution to the 2007 double header "Grindhouse," "Death Proof," starring Kurt Russell. When the Weinstein Co. took Tarantino's "Django Unchained" to the San Diego convention in 2012,  Tarantino wowed the Con with footage and did so again this year with his new western "The Hateful Eight," with a specially edited 7-minute piece of celluloid projected on the huge Hall H screen in glorious 70 mm. Tarantino started with a Weinstein promo reel narrated by Hall H no-show Samuel L. Jackson designed to sell the virtues of 70 mm and the road show format that was once widely used by the Hollywood studios to take an anticipated new film from city to city with extras before it went broader. (In this case the movie will be »

"I just got fired by my wussy acting agent because I spoke up about the bulls**t in Hollywood," she wrote.

Eli Roth, Knock Knock, and his impact on horror

11 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Eli Roth returns to the big screen with the Keanu Reeves-headlined Knock Knock. Wil looks back at his impact on horror...

It’s 13 years since Eli Roth made his debut with the grisly, inventive virus thriller Cabin Fever. And despite only directing four other full features since then — the latest of which, Knock Knock, is about to be released on June 26th — he’s made an indelible mark, a gory, bloody mark, on American horror cinema.

He’s one of that rare breed of directors, like a Scorsese or a Tarantino or a Hitchcock, that you know what they look and sound like. That aren’t just names behind a camera, but faces in other people’s movies, chat show guests, and have celebrity other halves. It doesn’t always mean that they are a great filmmaker, but it usually means that they are far more than just a person with technical skill. »

Jonny Quest Taking Off At Warner Bros. With Robert Rodriguez

26 May 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros.’ quest to turn Hanna-Barbera cartoon Jonny Quest into a live-action franchise is back on, now that Robert Rodriguez has climbed into the director’s chair.

The studio has been eyeing the cartoon, which originally aired back in the ’60s, as a family-friendly property for years. With Rodriguez on board, and also penning a script alongside Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean), expect the project to accelerate into production. The pair are rewriting a Black List script by Dan Mazeau.

The original series centered on a boy who accompanied his scientist father on adventures around the globe. With the help of bodyguard Race Bannon, Calcutta orphan Hadji and his pet bulldog Bandit, Quest went up against all manner of evildoers and nefarious organizations. Though the original Jonny Quest series only lasted one season (it was canceled due to production costs), it lived on through syndication and was revived in »
