Django Unchained
Quentin Tarantino stopped by the Cannes film festival for Pulp Fiction's twentieth anniversary (an anniversary that's going to make some of us feel old), where the film was the only movie to be shown on 35mm during the entire festival. As QT said "The fact that now most films are not shown in 35mm means the war is lost. The death of 35mm is the death of cinema." But...

Quentin Tarantino’s next film will be a another Western.  While many things Tarantino says about his upcoming projects should be taken with a grain of salt—remember The Vega Brothers Kill Bill Vol. 3? (though we should probably still hold out for the Inglorious Basterds-related Killer...

Django Unchained Movie Review

'Django Unchained': Will Smith Bailed Because The Role Wasn't Big Enough...

Here’s a fascinating case of an actor wildly mis-reading a script: in 2011, news broke that Quentin Tarantino wanted Will Smith to star as the titular character in his pre-Civil War era spaghetti western, Django Unchained.  Which made sense, in a way—Tarantino has a knack for oddball casting, and Will Smith starring in an actual good film is as odd as it gets these days (plus, as...

It took awhile but we all officially made it through the 85th Annual Academy Awards. There were a fair share of surprises sprinkled throughout the slightly entertaining broadcast, but now is not the time to gush about how happy we are that some people won. It's time to examine this year's list of winners and reflect on whether or not their wins were, well, deserved to be blunt.

ZERO DARK THIRTY
After weeks of debate, the American public can now see Zero Dark Thirty, and  it turns out they wanted to. The Best picture nominee ended up taking the weekend, fending off a terrible looking comedy and Gangster Squad.

Django Unchained Movie Review
There were two big shocks this weekend when it came to the numbers. One was that Texas Chainsaw 3D came at the exact right time and did much better business than anticipated. The other is just how well Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained is holding. It was a pretty strong weekend for movies in general, as almost everything held...

It's like a breath of fresh air when you walk into a movie theater and watch a film that's been one hundred percent created from a person's mind. There's no previous material that it's based off of for you to look up. The script's conception was done solely through one or two persons which blossomed into the movie that you see before you. This week we'd like to touch upon some of the original...

THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
Now that we're out of the Holiday season, Hollywood is taking a chance to breath and put their hand down their pants. There's one wide release of a horror movie (Texas Chainsaw 3D), and two expansion runs of Oscar-almost rans (The Impossible and Promised Land). Which means it's likely the top five won't change...

Django Unchained
Well, how do you like that? After an impressive showing on opening day, it looks like Les Miserables isn't the powerhouse that was expected. That's not to say it did bad business, but it may have peaked on Christmas. And Django Unchained proved exceptionally strong considering that it's three hours long and has been at the center of some...

Holidays make it hard to remember what day of the week it is. All the pictures for this weekend opened Tuesday on Christmas, which means we're coming off of a four day weekend, and are looking at another four day weekend with New Years. Many tried to get this whole week off, and kids are out of school, so the numbers have been strong already for the newcomers Les...

TOPS List image
This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

worst and most disappointing of 2012
2012, like any other year, had its host of good and bad films.  But it's hard to recall a year that also had so many disappointing films as well (not quite the same as bad films--we'll get into that below).  To the sheer, just awful dreck from such perennial underachievers as Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy, and Tyler Perry, to the frankly shocking disappointments from filmmakers who could have...

Okay, we know that some of Quentin Tarantino's movies can be a little bit long, but the man knows how to weave a good story. As usual the famed director is getting some attention for his latest movie Django Unchained. Apparently Harvey Weinstein already saw this coming and wanted to do something drastic with the spaghetti western before it hit theaters. Thank...
