7 Things We Learned From Quentin Tarantino’s New Interview

24 August 2015 2:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Quentin Tarantino is never one to hold back his opinion. The acclaimed filmmaker dished on everything from the possibility of another “Kill Bill” installment to his distaste for Cate Blanchett movies and “True Detective” in his interview with New York magazine. And if you ask Tarantino, Ben Affleck is no David O. Russell when it comes to casting films.

The writer-director also teased his upcoming Western thriller, “The Hateful Eight.”

Here are the most interesting tidbits from the colorful interview.

The “Kill Bill” franchise may still have some life in it:

“No, it’s not off the table, but we’ll see.”

Tarantino loved “How I Met Your Mother,” but hated “True Detective” from the get-go.

“The last two shows that I watched all the way were ‘Justified’ and ‘How I Met Your Mother.'”

“I tried to watch the first episode of season one [of ‘True Detective’], and I didn’t get into it at all. »

The annoying part of Quentin Tarantino's new interview

24 August 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

You may have heard that Quentin Tarantino's new interview at Vulture is entertaining, and that's because it is. He discusses "The Hateful Eight," perceptions about his career and influence, and his opinion of other filmmakers. He's especially keen on David O. Russell. Many Twitter users have said that the Q&A is filled with "truth bombs," and that's sort of true, but it's also filled with tired old biases disguised as brave stances, and one particular quote caused me to twinge in agitation and boredom. "I don’t know if we’re going to be talking about The Town or The Kids Are All Right or An Education 20 or 30 years from now. Notes on a Scandal is another one. Philomena. Half of these Cate Blanchett movies — they’re all just like these arty things. I’m not saying they’re bad movies, but I don’t think most of them have a shelf life. »

Ellen Page’s Lesbian Drama ‘Freeheld’ Faces Tough Commercial Test

30 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shortly after she came out of the closet in February 2014, Ellen Page went to work playing Stacie Andree in “Freeheld,” about a real-life lesbian couple that must fight to keep pension benefits after one of them (Julianne Moore) becomes terminally ill.

Page saw the 2007 documentary short “Freeheld: The Laurel Hester Story,” and had been circling a scripted adaptation since then. “It’s always tough trying to finance an independent film, particularly when it’s about two women,” says Page, who is also a producer on the picture, along with her manager, Kelly Bush. “There’s this awful bias that women can’t carry films, which is being proven not true. Hopefully that will start to change.”

Page researched by spending time in the house where Andree and her partner Hester lived in New Jersey. “I’m grateful to tell the story, but you wish the movie didn’t exist, »

Gay Rights and Hollywood Still Have a Long Way to Go

29 June 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Activist David Mixner stood alone on a theater stage in Los Angeles at the start of this year’s Gay Pride Month, sharing his memories with an audience of friends, political figures and a smattering of celebrities, about the time Ronald Reagan saw the light.

It was 1978, and aides to Reagan, who was on the cusp of launching his presidential campaign, believed he was ready to endorse a California initiative to ban gays and lesbians from teaching in the state’s classrooms, a ballot proposition inspired by the anti-gay crusades of singer Anita Bryant.

Mixner remembered when he and fellow activist Peter Scott landed a secret meeting with Reagan, who was exceedingly charming and willing to listen. Mixner warned the soon-to-be candidate that the initiative would create anarchy: Students could retaliate for a bad grade by accusing their teachers of being gay.

Reagan didn’t immediately reveal what he was going to do, »

Why Gay Movie Stars Are Staying Locked in the Closet

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There’s a vast and growing list of prominent gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender media and entertainment figures — just don’t count movie stars among them.

Celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres, Caitlyn Jenner and Neil Patrick Harris have kicked open the closet door with little to no damage to their careers. In some cases, they’ve found themselves more in demand after revealing their sexual preferences or gender identification.

Yet there’s one glass ceiling that remains stubbornly resistant to cracks.

No A-list film actor has yet to come out publicly while at the pinnacle of his or her career. Sure, Jodie Foster gave an elliptical Golden Globes speech about being a lesbian, and out actors Ian McKellen and Zachary Quinto helped anchor the “X-Men” and “Lord of the Rings” series, and the rebooted “Star Trek” films, respectively. Yet despite their prodigious talents, none of them has the power to »

Josh Hutcherson on 'Escobar' and watching people watch his movies on a plane

26 June 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's sort of crazy to think that Josh Hutcherson is still only 22-year-old.  The Kentucky native has already been a centerpiece of two major studio franchises ("Journey" and "The Hunger Games"), appeared in a Best Picture nominee ("The Kids Are All Right"), starred in an unnecessary remake ("Red Dawn"), voiced a major character in an animated release ("Epic") and starred in two classic family films ("Bridge to Terabithia" and "Zathura").  His four-year journey as Peeta comes to an end this November, but Hutcherson is actually spreading his wings into his first real adult role this weekend with "Escobar: Paradise Lost." Directed by first-timer Andrea Di Stefano, "Escobar" centers on a Canadian surf boarder (Hutcherson) who falls for one of the nieces of the notorious Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). While the movie's storyline is fiction it was inspired by the tale of a young Italian who made »

Infinitely Polar Bear Review

21 June 2015 7:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Maya Forbes’ big-screen memoir, Infinitely Polar Bear, is a movie about family that is also sweet enough to be a family film. Dedicated to the writer/director’s parents, it is one of the more accessible titles available that deals with manic depression and mental illness. However, that should not be a slight against it. An outstanding cast, led by a superb Mark Ruffalo and scene-stealing turns from the two newcomers who play his stubborn-headed daughters, elevate the film’s somewhat digestible portrait of bipolar disorder.

Ruffalo plays Cameron Stuart, a free-spirited kid raised with a silver spoon who was later kicked out of Harvard. On campus in the late 1960s, he met the bohemian Maggie (Zoe Saldana), with whom he soon started a family. Their two daughters, Amelia (Imogene Wolodarsky) and Faith (Ashley Aufderheide), have learned how to react to a manic-depressive dad. They do not mind when Cameron »

8 June 2015 3:56 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – He is one of the hottest movie actors on the market right now, but Mark Ruffalo will tell you he’s not an overnight success.

Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank has taken home two Best Actress Oscar statuettes. Kimberly Peirce's Boys Don't Cry (1999). Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby (2004).
