RZA on His New Film, ‘Black Panther’ and Inclusivity: ‘We Would Love to Have an Easier Path’

RZA on His New Film, ‘Black Panther’ and Inclusivity: ‘We Would Love to Have an Easier Path’
RZA is on the cusp of two professional milestones. This November, his legendary hip-hop group, the Wu-Tang Clan, will ring in its 25th anniversary with a series of Down Under concerts. And early next year, he will bring audiences his third film as a director, “Cut Throat City.”

Born Robert Fitzgerald Diggs, the artist began releasing features six years ago. Rather than a career pivot, moviemaking represented coming full circle in the entertainment industry: the very first Wu-Tang album (“Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers”) took its name from the 1978 film “The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.” In it, a fugitive college student travels to a Shaolin temple to master kung-fu, plotting revenge on his tyrannical government. During “RZA: Movies, Music, and Martial Arts” — his recent Hall H talk at San Diego Comic-Con — RZA recalled why Liu Chia-liang’s epic resonated for him and his bandmates.

Al Pacino Joins Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” just landed another legendary actor: Al Pacino.

Pacino will play Marvin Shwarz — Leonardo DiCaprio’s character’s agent in the Sony film — marking his first collaboration with Tarantino. Dating back to his first feature film, 1992’s “Reservoir Dogs,” Tarantino has always cast movie stars he grew up watching, from Robert Forster in “Jackie Brown” to David Carradine in the “Kill Bill” films. Pacino fits that mold of A-list actors who rose to fame in the 1970s.

Also joining the cast are Damian Lewis, who will play acting icon Steve McQueen, Luke Perry as Scotty Lancer, Emile Hirsch as hairstylist Jay Sebring, Dakota Fanning as Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme — a member of the Manson family — Clifton Collins as Ernesto the Mexican Vaquero, Keith Jefferson as Land Pirate Keith, and Nicholas Hammond as legendary director Sam Wanamaker.

Joseph Baxter Dec 20, 2018

Uma Thurman will headline Chambers, a supernatural-ish Netflix television drama.

Uma Thurman is set to board the Netflix content juggernaut. The actress will headline a series for the streaming giant, a 10-episode hourlong offering with supernatural themes, called Chambers.

It is the creation of writer Leah Rachel, an actress who's been juggling creative duties, having written for the 2012 TV series, Audrey, and directed a few short films. Rachel will serve as co-showrunner with Akela Cooper, who wields more experience in that department, having written and produced shows such as Luke Cage, American Horror Story, The 100 and Grimm.

Chambers will depict the story of a young heart attack survivor whose life was saved by a heart transplant. However, she starts to raise crucial questions about her new heart, eventually learning the terrible truth about the donor’s death.

Is Quentin Tarantino Going to Direct a Star Trek Film?

This is one of those blogs that requires an epic Khan-like scream from readers who are devout Trekkies. Based on Tarantino’s stated desire to write for Star Trek from the 1960’s episodes, and getting an apparent serious look from Paramount, there may be cause for concern. But first, we need to ask ourselves why Paramount, J.J. Abrams, or anyone else would consider adding Tarantino to the Director’s List of a Star Trek film. His style is questionable for movie critics and for movie goers alike. Kill Bill was a violent gore fest using thousands of gallons of fake (we hope)

10 awesome martial arts fights in the snow

Craig Lines Dec 6, 2017

Christmas and martial arts movies? They rarely crossover. But amazing fights in the snow? Now we're in business...

I love martial arts movies and I love Christmas so I'm kinda sad that the two have never really come together (Kung Fu Panda Holiday doesn't count). I'd hoped to find at least one good example to write about, as we move into the festive period, but I guess since most martial arts films come from Buddhist countries and Christmas is a Christian holiday, I was destined for disappointment.

I did briefly consider making one up with the aid of Photoshop, but wasn't sure I could get away with it so, alas, The 25th Advent Chamber Of Shaolin is not to be. For what it's worth, I'd got as far as an apprentice monk named Ho, fighting his way through 25 'doors' of a giant temple designed to resemble an advent calendar.

New Star Trek Movie Teams Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams

New Star Trek Movie Teams Quentin Tarantino and J.J. Abrams
Get ready for some incredibly unexpected, but possibly amazing news, sci-fi fans. Quentin Tarantino, the man behind movies like Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill, is developing a Star Trek Movie with J.J.

I'm Your Biggest Fan! - Reeves, Gerwig, and Chance

By Salim Garami

What's good? Apologies because I don't have much to say or talk about this week, except remark on how I'm still in a pretty pleasant mood moving out of Thanksgiving weekend and into the holiday season.

And part of what prolonged my pleasant mood was to find an admittedly 2-year-old video of movie star Keanu Reeves on promotional tour promoting John Wick in Japan discussing his admiration for martial arts film legend Sonny Chiba (of The Street Fighter or Kill Bill fame), influencing his physical choreography and style. Lo and behold, Chiba was in the studio ready to meet with Keanu and the Matrix star is suddenly starstruck to meet him and begins waxing rhapsodic over Chiba's work. Seeing such a household star in the industry be taken aback by the presence of figure that certainly isn't as well-known internationally as Reeves brought a smile to my face.

Why Kesha Really F*cking Deserved to Be Nominated For Album of the Year

Image Source: Getty / Kevin Mazur This week, the Recording Academy announced the nominees for the 2018 Grammy Awards. With so much good music in the past year, it came as no surprise that the competition was as fierce as the categories were packed. And while those who did receive nods absolutely earned their keep, many artists were left out of crucial categories, and others were left off the list altogether. Suffice it to say, many fans are not pleased. And sure, there are many artists who deserved more, but nothing left me more disappointed than the Academy's failure to recognize Kesha's 2017 album, Rainbow, in the album of the year category. Granted, Kesha wasn't completely snubbed by the Grammys this year. The singer received a best pop performance nomination for "Praying," and Rainbow was nominated for best pop vocal album, but it's not enough. I wanted more!

2017-11-28T06:13:19-08:00Actress Accuses Harvey Weinstein of Sex Trafficking

A new lawsuit filed by an actress against Kill Bill producer Harvey Weinstein alleges that Weinstein engaged not just in sexual harassment and assault, but international sex trafficking as well. The allegations arise from the claims of actress Kadian Noble, who says that Weinstein targeted her in Europe and then groomed her for work in the United States, suggesting that she needed to trade sex for help with her acting career.

Via Page Six.

Harvey Weinstein was slapped with a civil lawsuit Monday charging him with sex trafficking tied to an alleged assault in Cannes, France.

Aspiring actress Kadian Noble’s lawsuit claims Weinstein first “groomed” her for the alleged assault in London, when he told her that “he had a role in mind for her and that ‘it will be good for you.'”

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
