‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ turns 20: Horror and the Tarantinoverse

There is a strong possibility that Quentin Tarantino has forgotten more about movies than most filmbuffs will ever know. In addition to sporting an encyclopedic knowledge of all things cinema, he is one of the most talented and respected filmmakers of his generation.

‘The Hateful Eight’ is Tarantino at his most indulgent, which can be good and bad

No one even remotely familiar with the director’s oeuvre will ever walk into the theatre expecting to get a blisteringly fast paced actioner that clicks along like it was nobody’s business. The beauty about Tarantino’s style is the very fact that he is, for lack of a better term, indulgent. His dialogue is often funny, sharp, extremely character-driven, referential, and controversial in the best way possible.

New on Video: ‘Day for Night’

“Day for Night,” a much loved, widely awarded, and truly joyous work about the trials and triumphs of making a film and the extraordinary power of motion pictures as objects of affection and obsession.

‘Crime Wave’ is an under-appreciated gem

A married couple attempt to rob a house while making a door-to-door sales call: one pitches the customer, the other fakes a trip to the washroom and searches for valuables. When their cover is blown, the husband bludgeons the man to death with a glass candy dish, and sticks a broom in the woman’s wheelchair spokes before ramming Milk-Bones down her throat. What villains! And all in the name of becoming the top sales team in the nation—that is until they’re gunned down by police at the National Sales Awards ceremony: a pitch-perfect ending to their violent crime wave.

‘Django/Zorro’ #1 is an Entertaining Team Up and Genre Mashup

Even though historically speaking, Zorro and Django were contemporaries, they couldn’t be more different. First, there is their ages. Zorro is 95 years old whereas Django hasn’t even celebrated his second birthday as a fictional character. They come in different social classes and cultures (Mexican aristocrat and former African American slave) and are children of different genres with Zorro taking his cues from the pulp and superhero genres while Django is a product of blaxploitation and the Western.

Quentin Tarantino officially confirms ‘The Hateful Eight’ moving forward

It’s Sunday and the final day of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the convention. After a crazy weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Godzilla 2, Skull Island, Mad Max: Fury Road, Crimson Peak, a ton of TV, and comic news, we’ve got one last big film announcement. As reported by Deadline from the Dynamite Comic’s panel, while promoting the Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is officially moving forward with his new western The Hateful Eight.
