A Striking Supercut of Sound From Quentin Tarantino’s Films

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 9, 2015 in Cinema

slurp

Sound and foley often is brushed over when people think about the work that goes into movies — but when it’s absent, you can suddenly feel that something is wrong; the movie world doesn’t feel quite as real. Quentin Tarantino is the epitome of style, but Jacob Swinney on Vimeo decided to put together a supercut not of the director’s visuals, but his sound. It easier to catch it isolation, but there’s a ton of great work here. There’s some of the obvious picks like the slurping of a nearly-empty soda… and other smaller bits like the sound of a cigarette. Check out the video below! Read more…

The Hateful Eight Shoots in January, Opens in Fall 2015

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 4, 2014 in Cinema

tarantino

After all the insanity, take-backs, and lawsuits, Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight will begin filming in January 2015. The Weinsteins also announced that the film would release in the fall of 2015, and that (just as the teaser said) the movie will be shot on 70mm film, and it’ll be the widest roll out of 70mm in 20 years. Impressive! It’ll also show up on 35mm and DCP later, but it’s the 75mm we’re all here for. I’m excited to see how this finally turns out! Read more…

A Teaser For The Hateful Eight May Be Attached To Sin City 2

Posted by Ben Huber on Aug 17, 2014 in Cinema

8poster

Quentin Tarantino has been going back and forth on The Hateful Eight a lot, but it’s now scheduled to shoot at the start of next year, last we heard. Which is what makes this news so odd: a teaser trailer for the film appears to be attached to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Hardly any production has been done on the film, and a teaser trailer is already on the way? Well, reportedly, it’s all title cards — which, you know, makes sense. It seems to be just a nice bonus for his buddy Robert Rodriguez, as it won’t even be available online (hah! I doubt it’ll stay that way. “Life finds a way.” Or a leak). Still, it’s nice to know that Tarantino is still on track and will be starting on the film soon. And maybe a few more folks will see Sin City 2, now. Read more…

Tarantino Co-Writing Django Unchained & Zorro Crossover Comic Book Series

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 20, 2014 in Cinema, Comic Books

django

It looks like Quentin Tarantino will be dabbling in the comic pages soon. Django, from Tarantino’s last film, Django Unchained, will leap into a comic book series in which he meets up with Zorro. Dynamite Entertainment will release the comic book series, which (along with Tarantino) will be written by Matt Wagner, and yes, Zorro and Django is the oddest crossover ever. I think it’s weird enough to work though, as they’re both very “pulpy” characters that could play well off of each other. Django previously was adapted as a 7-issue series by Dynamite, so it’s no surprise to see them bringing it back in a new way. I wonder how it’ll turn out! Read more…

Tarantino’s Next Film Called The Hateful Eight, Now Hunting for Actors?

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 13, 2014 in Cinema

tarantino

Deadline is reporting that Quentin Tarantino is back and has finished the first draft on his next film, reportedly titled The Hateful Eight. Last time Tarantino was on Jay Leno’s show, he mentioned that this film would be a Western. He just couldn’t stay away after Django Unchained! Tarantino is also apparently shopping his script around to several actors he wants to be in the film. Unsurprisingly, Christoph Waltz is at the top of the list. Another name Deadline is hearing is Bruce Dern (who had a small part in Django), who’s been getting a lot of buzz for his performance in Nebraska. I’m really interested to see Tarantino do another Western, so I hope we get more details soon. Read more…

New Clips from Django Unchained to Whet Your Appetite

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 16, 2012 in Cinema

django

Django Unchained is almost here… along with Christmas Day. The hype train is in full gear, so what better way to get ready for the movie than by spoiling yourself watching 3 new clips from it? Maybe you’re like me and can’t help yourself, or maybe you just want to get a feel for the tone of the film. Either way, you can catch Leonardo DiCaprio chewing the scenery and Christoph Waltz trying his best to keep Jamie Foxx in line. If you’re looking for a little bit of Samuel L. Jackson, he shows up in the final clip, intimidating Kerry Washington. Watch them after the break! Read more…

New Django Unchained Trailer to Get You Excited for Christmas

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 1, 2012 in Cinema

django

Perhaps I’m a terrible person, but I may just be excited for Django Unchained a teensy bit more than actual Christmas. Quentin Tarantino’s latest film opens Christmas Day, and to me that might just be the best gift a film fan could ask for. Recently I’ve been wondering who many more films we’ll be getting out of him, given that he’s been talking about retirement. He says he wants to quit while his filmography is still good and never produce a stinker like many other directors who continue past their prime. That’s such a Tarantino thing to say (and by extension, a film fan thing to say), so I’m really not surprised by his remarks like so many other people. Till then, his work still looks solid! Watch the trailer below. Read more…

Tarantino XX Blu-ray Box-Set is Packed Full of Violence

Posted by Ben Huber on Oct 11, 2012 in Cinema

tarantino

Are you a big Quentin Tarantino fan? Big enough to re-buy all of his films on Blu-ray? Coming this November is Tarantino XX, an 8-film collection picked by Tarantino to illustrate the first 20 years of his career. The collection includes Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, Jackie Brown, Death Proof, and True Romance. All great films, but I suspect many of you already own these films on Blu-ray (I know I do), so it depends on whether 5 hours of new special features is worth the entry price of $89.98 via Amazon. If you’re picking up, at least you’ll get a fantastic cover and box to hold all the films! Tarantino XX drops November 20th. Read more…

RZA’s The Man With the Iron First Looks… Ridiculous

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 30, 2012 in Cinema

When I say ridiculous, I mean it in a good way. RZA will be directing a new film that looks to be equal parts insane and awesome – and it’s being produced by Quentin Tarantino. Co-starring with Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu, The Man With the Iron Fist is set in 19th century China as a blacksmith must protect his village from traitorous threats. Who knows if the film will be good, but I will bet on one thing: it’s sure to be entertaining. No news on a specific release date yet, but hopefully we’ll see the film come out sometime this year.

Django Unchained Trailer Features Guns, Jokes, and DiCaprio Laughing It Up

Posted by Ben Huber on Jun 8, 2012 in Cinema

Have I told you I’m really excited for Quentin Tarantino’s latest, Django Unchained? Because I am. And this trailer just shot up and cemented its position as one of my most anticipated films this year. Jamie Foxx plays Django, a slave in the south who partners up with a German bounty hunter (the always enjoyable Christoph Waltz) to track down the man who took his wife. Leonardo DiCaprio plays an insane plantation owner and honestly, it just looks like he’s having the time of his life hamming it up. It’ll be worth it just to see DiCaprio play a villain for once! Django Unchained arrives Christmas Day – so it looks like I’ll be up late Christmas Eve checking this out.

New Teaser Poster for Django Unchained Channels Saul Bass

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 13, 2012 in Cinema

We’ve received very few looks at Quentin Tarantino’s new film, Django Unchained, so far. It’s coming out this Christmas but all we had to show for it were a few leaked set images, one featuring Christoph Waltz in costume. Well, we’ve finally got a little taste, in the form of a teaser poster. Now I’m going to state the obvious here and say that this poster looks very Saul Bass-esque – and given Tarantino’s love of film, this should be no surprise. Check it out below. Read more…

Scott Pilgrim to Receive Midnight Screenings in LA

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Aug 30, 2011 in Cinema, Comic Books

Scott Pilgrim group shot

If you’re in the Los Angeles area you may be in luck. Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema has announced that they’ll start hosting a monthly midnight screenings of Edgar Wright’s modern cult-classic, Scott Pilgrim vs the World. It feels so weird calling it a classic, but the film’s cult status can’t be denied. At least some of you might actually get to see it in theaters for the first time. and judging by its ticket sales, that’s probably everyone you know. The first screening will take place on Friday, September 23rd and attendees are encouraged to come dressed in costume. For more info regarding future screenings, check out the New Beverly Cinema’s official site for a full calendar of upcoming events. It’s a shame that its only happening in Los Angeles,  but I still hope to attend at least one of those screenings at some point.

Tarantino Picks His Fave Films of 2009

Posted by Michael Pinto on Dec 15, 2009 in Cinema, Star Trek

There were some films on Quentin’s list that I loved like Star Trek, but his admiration for Observe and Report leaves me puzzled. I’ll be honest: I didn’t film the film but the trailer unsold me rather quickly. I love the fact that Tarantino mentioned the Thai film Chocolate which was directed by Prachya Pinkaew. Here’s the trailer which looks amazing: Read more…

Our Top Ten Tarantino Dynamite Dames

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 20, 2009 in Cinema

Shosanna Dreyfus from Inglourious Basterds played by Melanie Laurent.

Quentin TarantinoOn the face of it Inglourious Basterds looks like a clear cut “World War II guys film” if there ever was one, but the inclusion of the character Shosanna Dreyfus made me realize that there was a bit more going on here. In fact in interviews Quentin Tarantino states that Shosanna was “always a main character”. Which made me reflect on the wealth and diversity of ladies that Tarantino has always featured in his films — in fact it’s something that makes his films into something much more interesting than what you see out of Hollywood. Of course part of his magic is that often Tarantino will write a role with a particular actress in mind. Here are my favorites characters that he’s conjured up over the years: Read more…

Inglourious Basterds: I Can’t Wait Until August 21st!

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 6, 2009 in Cinema

This is the latest viral video promotion for Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds — it’s a film within a film trailer. I spotted this last night on YouTube but I didn’t click on the thumbnail to make the connection (shame on me). But one thing I know for sure: Come August 21st I’ll be waiting in line to see this film on opening night. Read more…

Inglorious Basterds: Latest Trailer

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 25, 2009 in Cinema

I don’t care if it’s good, bad or silly: I’ll stand in line for any Quentin Tarantino — so by default this is the film I’m looking ahead to seeing this summer. Part of me is still trying to get use to Brad Pitt’s southern twang matched with Tarantino’s wisecracking dialogue. The plot of this film reminds me a great deal of The Dirty Dozen with a touch of Pulp Fiction thrown in for fun. Below is another clip I found from late May when Tarantino first showed the film in Cannes, it’s very cool as it has a full scene with a set up by Quentin at the start of the video: Read more…

David Carradine: Reminiscing About Kung Fu in 1991

Posted by Michael Pinto on Jun 5, 2009 in Cinema

Last night Larry King put together an amazing panel on David Carradine which featured Quentin Tarantino and Rob Schneider. For me the highlight of the segment featured Quentin Tarantino showing off his vintage Kung Fu lunchbox that he still had from his childhood. You can tell with the guests that there was a great deal of respect in the room for the man. Instead of focusing on the cause of his death I’d rather focus on his life — above is a Larry King interview with Carradine from 1991 which is riveting. Read more…

Kill Bill in One Minute and One Take

Posted by Michael Pinto on Mar 21, 2009 in Cinema

As a Quentin Tarantino fanboy I love this fan made remake of Kill Bill (parts 1 and 2 no less). The credit goes to directors Joe Burgess, Rocco Sulkin and Will Tribble of the University of York Filmmaking Society. And on a related note here’s a Lego Batman version of Kill Bill which I also got a kick out of: Read more…

Inglourious Basterds: Quentin Tarantino Goes to War

Posted by Michael Pinto on Feb 12, 2009 in Cinema

Brad Pitt’s accent doesn’t quite cut it for me in this trailer (compare him to the performance of R. Lee Ermey in Full Metal Jacket) but I’m sure Quentin Tarantino will have enough guts-n-gore to make up for that! And of course even if QT isn’t making a great film he never commits the sin of making a dull film, you know that when you enter the movie theater you’re going on a long roller coaster ride.

Pulp Muppets

Posted by Michael Pinto on Nov 15, 2008 in Cinema

This video mash up of the Muppets and Pulp Fiction got me to thinking: What I liked so much about this film was that it wasn’t based on any existing book, it was an original story. In fact like all good films of the crime genre it has very little to do with crime — and is all about people. I’d love to see Quentin Tarantino get back to basics again, although being a fanboy I’ll gladly stand in line for anything he directs.
