Django Unchained (2012) Movie Review

24 December 2012 1:07 PM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Sergio Corbucci’s 1966 spaghetti western, “Django”, is legendary as the film that launched 100 unofficial sequels. This is obvious hyperbole and urban legend—to date only 30-something are accounted for—but it still spawned a crap load of badass westerns. These movies run the gamut from trying to recreate the grim tone and setting of the original, to offerings like “Sukiyaki Western Django”, Takashi Miike’s manic mod take on two feuding frontier clans. The latest, and highest profile installment, Quentin Tarantino’s “Django Unchained”, falls somewhere in between. Set in 1858, a few years before the Civil War, Tarantino’s second consecutive dive into historical waters presents a grim, stoic bounty hunter, but also uses the writer/director’s trademark quick, witty banter to skewer one of America’s darker chapters: slavery. The film juxtaposes the past with the modern. Setting, costumes, and story all scream old timey, though the music, »

First Look: Ken Watanabe in Japanese Remake of 'Unforgiven'

25 October 2012 4:09 PM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

Back in August, we reported that Ken Watanabe, best known for his roles in The Last Samurai, Inception and Letters from Iwo Jima, would be headlining a Japanese remake of the Oscar-winning Clint Eastwood movie Unforgiven, titled Yurusarezaru Mono. Production has been moving along and the film is currently being shot in northern Japan in a remote area of Hokkaido. Press was recently invited to the set and today we get our first look at Watanabe as a samurai with a violent past named Kamata Juube, courtesy of Tokyo Hive. Pictured in the first look image below with Watanabe is Sato Koichi (Sukiyaki Western Django) as the feared local police cheif portrayed by Gene Hackman in the original. The film takes place after the collapse of the Edo shogunate in 1880 and follows Juube, who...

Sneak Peek The Official "Django Unchained" Trailer

6 June 2012 6:35 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek the first trailer from director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming western action feature "Django Unchained" :

"...set in the South two years before the Civil War, 'Django Unchained' stars Academy Award-winner Jamie Foxx as 'Django', a slave whose brutal history with his former owners lands him face-to-face with German-born bounty hunter 'Dr. King Schultz' (Academy Award-winner Christoph Waltz).

"Schultz is on the trail of the murderous 'Brittle brothers, and only Django can lead him to his bounty.  

"The unorthodox Schultz acquires Django with a promise to free him upon the capture of the Brittles – dead or alive. 

Success leads Schultz to free Django, though the two men choose not to go their separate ways. Instead, Schultz seeks out the South’s most wanted criminals with Django by his side. Honing vital hunting skills, Django remains focused on one goal: finding and rescuing 'Broomhilda' (Kerry Washington »

Takashi Miike Film Lines Up Graphic-Novel Adaptation 'Lesson Of The Evil,' Wants To Have It Ready For Venice

7 March 2012 11:46 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Curiously missing from many top ten lists of last year was Takashi Miike's “13 Assassins,” his sweeping ode to the samurai epic with enough stunning imagery and action to match its thematically rich story. The prolific director is occasionally known for tossing off films with a whiff of exercise and effort (read: “Ninja Kids!!!”), but that film displayed such mastery behind the camera, including a final 45-minute battle of incredible geography and flow, that one couldn't help but be blown away. Now, Punch Drunk Critics has dug up news of his latest project, an adaptation of the best-selling graphic novel “Aku No Kyoten” ("Lesson of the Evil"), and those who are new to Miike's wonderfully diverse filmography are sure to be surprised while his other fans crack a giant grin.

The adaptation, set to shoot in April this year, marks the reunion between actor Hideaki Ito and Miike, last seen »

Takashi Miike Directing Killer Teacher Story ‘Lesson of the Evil’

6 March 2012 7:02 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

When did movies about teachers start getting so dark? DreadCentral reports that genre director and icon Takashi Miike has signed on to direct Aku no Kyoten (translated to Lesson of the Evil), an adaptation of the 2010 graphic novel by Yusuke Kishi.

The movie will star Hideaki Itô (lead of Miike‘s Sukiyaki Western Django) as the beloved and charming teacher Seiji Hasumi, who uses his outgoing outward appearance to mask his sociopathic and psychotic tendencies. The darkness inside Hasumi manifests itself in the murder of his students, which he considers “mercy killings,” as the students are dealing with bad parents as well as constant bullying. That, sadly, sounds far more proactive than what actual teachers and school faculties do to combat those problems. Filming is set to start in April, with a hope to premiere the film at this year’s Venice International Film Festival in August, before a planned theatrical release in November. »
