Here Are All of Quentin Tarantino's Best Music Scenes in One Video

22 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

  If there’s one thing that immediately hits the viewer when watching a Quentin Tarantino film, it’s that music is extremely crucial to the atmosphere and narrative of his work. In an interview with Contact Music, Tarantino spoke about his writing process and how music plays a large role in the way he works. The quote is too good to chop up, so brace yourself for a novel-length explanation, below. While you’re here, check out this supercut of Tarantino music scenes, featuring the extremely danceable Pulp Fiction, Death Proof and more.  Music is very important in my movies. In some ways the most important stage, whether it ends up being in the movie or not, is when I come up with the idea itself, before I've actually sat down and started...

Watch: Supercut Of The Music Scenes In Quentin Tarantino's Films

21 August 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He hasn’t even shot a foot of film on “The Hateful Eight” and we still can’t stop talking about Quentin Tarantino. Earlier this week, we showed you a supercut of every death and kill in Tarantino’s filmography, and yesterday brought a look at the teaser for the director’s latest. Today we traverse into the past again, but this time with a less violent result. Yesterday, editor Javier Virto posted a short supercut on Vimeo that shines a spotlight on some of the iconic sequences in Tarantino’s films which memorably used music. All the heavy hitter are accounted for: the Jack Rabbit Slims dance, the Mr. Blonde and cop interrogation, the lapdance scene in the extended cut of “Death Proof” and many others. While you’ll have to play the songs originally used in the scenes in your head —the video cuts all the scenes into »

Watch Every Death in a Quentin Tarantino Movie So Far

18 August 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I don't think it's a spoiler to say people die in Quentin Tarantino movies. I think it's pretty safe to assume people will die in his next movie, The Hateful Eight. Hell, people might even die in the upcoming teaser trailer for the film set to play in front of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For this weekend even though filming on the movie has yet to begin. That's how often people die in Tarantino movies and Vimeo user Jaume R. Lloret has taken upon himself to pore over Tarantino's filmography -- Reservoir Dogs (1992), Pulp Fiction (1994), Jackie Brown (1997), Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003), Kill: Bill Vol. 2 (2004), Death Proof (2007), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Django Unchained (2012) -- and presents every death from a Tarantino film in the following four-minute supercut. Previously, Vanity Fair charted every death in Tarantino's movies can came up with approximately 560 total on-screen deaths (see the chart below the video »

7 Quentin Tarantino Movie Plots That Really Happened

7 August 2014 11:04 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Dimension Films

Critic Ken Dancyger, when reviewing hotshot new director Quentin Tarantino’s second feature Pulp Fiction, called it “a new phenomenon, the movie whose style is created from the context of movie life rather than real life. The consequence is twofold—the presumption of deep knowledge on the part of the audience of those forms such as the gangster films or Westerns, horror films or adventure films. And that the parody or alteration of that film creates a new form, a different experience for the audience.”

Tarantino himself has agreed with this assessment, splitting his films up further into the “realer than real” and “movie movies”. The “realer than real” – Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Jackie Brown – are still pretty divorced from reality, but they’re still more grounded than the “movie movies” like Kill Bill and Death Proof. As over the top as his characters can be, though, and »

Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight – First Poster Revealed

31 July 2014 1:57 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Weinstein Company

It’s probably safe to say we all loved Django Unchained. How could you not? The blood, the guts, the drama, the dodgy Australian accents – it was everything you could hope for in a Quentin Tarantino movie, and more besides. Then Qt himself dropped a bombshell: Django was more of a test subject. He was seeing if he could make a Western. And now that he’s learned he can – and an awesome one at that – he’s moving onto his first big frontier epic proper, in a film he calls The Hateful Eight. The Magnificent Seven’s angsty older brothers, maybe?

The film suffered a setback in January this year when the script got leaked onto the internet. Tarantino was, understandably, a little peeved at this (and by “a little peeved” we hope you know what we really mean, especially from a man so infamous for »

Shouldn't You Actually Start Filming Before You Have a Movie Poster?

30 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

They're now officially counting Kill Bill as One feature so that The Hateful Eight can be Quentin Tarantino's official "8th" film. Convenient, eh? But that's okay because they should've been one film all along. And oh what gross film-splittings have occurred in their wake.

Question: Shouldn't you start filming before releasing a poster?

The movie is not scheduled to start filming until 2015... and the poster assumes everything will happen on schedule and it will be out by the end of that year. Good luck, movie! This reminds me of Amir's rants about all those opening day announcements for secret movies. Hollywood has a preemie problem.

 And may Quentin get this out of his system since this'll be his second consecutive nearly all male western. May he some day return to writing great female roles again because he's slipping into terrain that other writer/directors have covered sufficiently throughout time. »

Fast & Furious 7 is set for release on April 10th, 2015, with James Wan (The Conjuring) directing a cast that also includes returning stars Dwayne Johnson (Hercules), Michelle Rodriguez (Resident Evil), Jordana Brewster (The Faculty), Tyrese Gibson (Transformers), Ludacris (New Year’s Eve), Lucas Black (Jarhead) and the late Paul Walker alongside Jason Statham (Crank 2: High Voltage), Kurt Russell »

Kurt Russell: Quentin Tarantino's 'Hateful Eight' may shoot early next year

16 July 2014 7:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) Kurt Russell just made a lot of Quentin Tarantino fans happy. The "Death Proof" star recently appeared on Fox 29 in Philadelphia, where he revealed, “I’ve got a Tarantino project called "'The Hateful Eight' that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year.” Russell took part in a live reading of the script after it leaked online. For a while, Tarantino was going to scrap the project as a film, but in May word got out that it could begin shooting as early as November. Russell stars alongside Samuel L. Jackson in the Wild West film as rival bounty hunters who get stuck in a saloon as a blizzard rolls in. They will be joined by Walton Goggins’ Awol Confederate soldier, Amber Tamblyn’s convicted criminal, and characters played by Bruce Dern and Michael Madsen. (via FirstShowing.net) »

Quentin Tarantino to shoot The Hateful Eight early next year, according to Kurt Russell

14 July 2014 12:51 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in January, Quentin Tarantino was all set to follow up Django Unchained with another Western – that is until Gawker posted a leaked version of the script for The Hateful Eight online, with Quentin then deciding to take his ball home and put the brakes on the film. A few months later at Cannes, Tarantino revealed that he’d been considering if and how to move forward with the project, which was followed by a rumour that cameras would start rolling in November.

Well, it looks like that rumour was wide of the mark, but only slightly, as Kurt Russell has indicated that The Hateful Eight will go ahead, and is likely to shoot in the early part of 2015, with the Death Proof star telling MyFoxPhilly that “I’ve got a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around the beginning of the year. »

Kurt Russell Leaks Hateful Eight Start Date

14 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

There was a terrible span where Quentin Tarantino's proposed western The Hateful Eight looked like it'd be shelved forever, mostly out of spite. But thankfully, Tarantino has forgiven fans for their voracious nature, and The Hateful Eight is poised to ride after all! And production could start early 2015, so says one of its slated stars Kurt Russell. The former baseball player turned beloved actor who previously collaborated with Quentin Tarantino on Death Proof was talking about his involvement in the new to Netflix documentary The Battered Bastards of Baseball on the Fox affiliate out of Philadelphia. But First Showing tipped us to The Hateful Eight update Russell dropped amid talk of his dad, Portland Mavericks owner Bing Russell, and baseball. Speaking about what's next for the still hotly sought performer, Kurt Russell said: "There's a Tarantino project called The Hateful Eight that looks like it may go somewhere around »

Robert Rodriguez-Hosted Director’S Chair Returns With Guillermo Del Toro/Quentin Tarantino Episodes; Premiere Information

10 July 2014 11:04 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Earlier this year, Robert Rodriguez gave fans one hell of an episode of his filmmaker on filmmaker interview show, The Director’S Chair, with its John Carpenter episode. Giving fans an in depth conversation with the master of horror, Rodriguez and Carpenter spoke about the director’s motivations, stories and ideas behind some of his most adored films. Never one to slow down, Rodriguez is set to unleash a pretty impressive one-two punch with the recent announcement of episodes featuring conversations between the prolific director and filmmakers Guillermo Del Toro (Hellboy, Pan’S Labyrinth) and Quentin Tarantino (Pulp FictionDeath Proof). The Del Toro episode premieres on July 9th, with the Tarantino being split into two parts, the first airing on August 13th and the second on August 27th.

Regarding the two newest episodes, Rodriguez had this to say: “These are engaging conversations that shed light on the minds of today’s greatest filmmakers. »

Franco Nero returning as Django in Django Lives

26 June 2014 7:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After Quentin Tarantino revived the franchise in 2012 with Django Unchained, original star Franco Nero is set to return to the role of Django almost 50 years after the character’s first appearance in Sergio Corbucci 1966 Spaghetti Western (and almost thirty years since his second appearance in 1987′s Django Strikes Again!) , with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Nero will strap on the holster once again for Django Lives, which has just begun filming.

The new is being directed by regular Tarantino collaborator Joe D’Augustine, whose editing credits include Kill Bill, Death Proof and Inglourious Basterds, and “will be set in 1915, with Nero playing the role of an older Django working as a consultant to producers of silent movie westerns who gets involved with racketeers.” Also set to feature in the cast are Mark Boone Junior (Batman Begins), Noah Segan (Looper), and Tomas Milian (Traffic).

The Art of the Steal Review

20 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

“If you got no trust then what do you got?” muses Kurt Russell’s ex-con Crunch Calhoun. With a name like that he may sound like a Scottish breakfast cereal but imagine a PG version of Stuntman Mike from Tarantino’s Death Proof and you’re nearly there. Lured back into the game by his shifty brother Nicky (Matt Dillon), our poor man’s Evil Knievel can’t resist the temptation of ‘one last job’ in this heist caper.

With the action played out in 90 derivative minutes across Canada and Detroit it’s “America lite” jokes one character. Though it might as well be ‘Ocean’s Eleven lite’ as Crunch enlists the help of his apprentice Francie (Jay Baruchel) to ‘get the old gang back together’ for a multi-million dollar art scam involving several MacGuffins including a 3ft cubist sculpture of a vagina (no, really). Meanwhile with Interpol (or in »

Kurt Russell's 5 best movie roles - from Plissken to Elvis Presley

20 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Like a long-lost childhood friend returning after years in the wilderness, Kurt Russell is finally back on leading man duties in new heist caper The Art of the Steal. To celebrate the perennially-mulleted icon's return to the big screen, here's a look at five of his classic roles...

Elvis Presley - Elvis (1979)

Made just two years after the American icon's tragic demise and therefore placed under intense scrutiny by a still-devastated public, John Carpenter's TV movie Elvis managed to win over those suspicious minds with a terrific portrayal of the hip-shaking star by the Emmy-nominated Russell.

Such an iconic, identifiable, and effectively deified figure was never going to be a simple task to imitate - just look at the casting issues over Freddie Mercury in the planned biopic. It speaks volumes for Russell's versatility that he donned the blue suede shoes with such assurance to deliver a rousing performance »

If Clint Eastwood Can Do It, Anyone Can: 10 Directors Who Need to Make a Musical

18 June 2014 8:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Sometimes good musicals come from directors you might not expect. Brian De Palma made Phantom of the Paradise. Robert Altman made Popeye. And now Clint Eastwood brings us his adaptation of the Broadway hit Jersey Boys. So since anyone can make a musical, here are some directorial candidates who need to make one Asap.   Quentin Tarantino Even when holding back a little to fit a concept (yes, I'm talking about Death Proof), Tarantino always manages to bring some kind of must-see filmmaking bravado and originality to his work. Applying that to a musical would have to result in something unique and exciting. And probably bloody.   Edgar Wright The detailed comic precision that goes into every Edgar Wright movie would play well in a musical setting. Shaun...
