2008’s Rambo said everything it needed to about its titular character. Writer, director, and star Sylvester Stallone gave the character closure, just as he did for Rocky Balboa with 2006’s Rocky Balboa. Nevertheless, the Creed star has expressed interest over the years in making another sequel, possibly called Last Blood Rambo. But apparently he’s had a change of heart.

Learn why Stallone will not direct another Rambo sequel after the jump.

directors roundtable

Around the end of every year, The Hollywood Reporter releases one-hour roundtable video interviews with writers, actors, directors, and more. Often the filmmakers will discuss their work with a surprising amount of honesty. This year is no different, and once again, they’ve found a few filmmakers you’d want to spend an hour with, including directors Quentin Tarantino (The Hateful Eight), Ridley Scott (The Martian), and Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs).

After the jump, watch the one-hour long chat.

Now that the police unions have abandoned their bizarre, supervillain-esque plot to take down Quentin Tarantino, it’s someone else’s turn to put a metaphorical target on his back. Just his new film The Hateful Eight rolls into theaters, Tarantino is getting sued over his last movie, Django Unchained, by two screenwriters who claim he ripped off their own original screenplay. More about the Django Unchained lawsuit after the jump.  Read More »

The Hateful Eight Expanding

The Hateful Eight expanding its release sooner than expected is hardly bad news. Quentin Tarantino‘s western has already grossed almost $5.66M at the box office in the past week, playing on just 100 screens. Who would’ve thought people would’ve been this excited about the ninth film from Tarantino? Following The Hateful Eight‘s success, The Weinstein Company is now making the film available to a mass audience.

quentin tarantino movies ranked

I’ve spent the past few weeks immersing myself in the world of Quentin Tarantino. To prepare for the release of his latest film, The Hateful Eight, I ranked each and every one of his characters. Then I wrote about The Hateful Eight itself, which I saw in its glorious “roadshow” version. Now, it’s time to close the book on this subject for a little while… or until Mr. Tarantino decides to get around to making another movie. It’s time to rank all of his movies. Because this is the internet and ranking things is what we do.

So how do you rank the work of a filmmaker whose worst movie is still an exceptional piece of cinema? With great difficulty. This kind of thing isn’t science. This isn’t definitive by any means. Consider this an opportunity to talk about Tarantino’s work, to debate and discuss his movies. You will most certainly disagree with this ranking and that’s kind of the point.

Now, let’s dive in.

the hateful eight roadshow

Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight opened on 100 screens this past week as part of a unique, limited engagement. These 100 theaters would not be screening the movie through digital projection, but on 70mm film, a format that is all but extinct. That alone is an ordeal and a half, but that unique projection would only be one aspect of this “roadshow” release. There would also be an overture. And an intermission. And souvenir programs. Tarantino’s obsession with classic film presentation has climaxed – to watch The Hateful Eight in this format is to take a three-hour journey back in time, to an age where movies were truly sold as proper events.

As a sucker for Tarantino’s work (did rank all 122 of his characters) and an even bigger sucker for unique, one-of-a-kind theatrical experiences, I knew there was no way I was going to miss seeing The Hateful Eight in “glorious” 70mm. So, here’s how it all went down.

halloween franchise

Dimension Films has been spearheading the Halloween franchise since 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. Under their banner, the violent saga the masked “boogeyman” Michael Myers continued on for three sequels before it was rebooted under director Rob Zombie. After two films, Zombie stopped away and Marcus Dunstan boarded the franchise to helm a third movie that would have acted as a soft reboot of the whole series. Halloween Returns was supposed to film in July. It didn’t.

Now, whatever behind-the-scenes problems were plaguing Dimension and this iconic series have spilled into the public eye. The studio has lost the rights to the Halloween franchise, which means… Well, it certainly means something, although we have no idea what that something means quite yet.

Quentin Tarantino and Paul Thomas Anderson

This holiday weekend sees the release of Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth film, The Hateful Eight. The western has a traditional theatrical release along with a special 70mm roadshow engagement that has extra footage and an intermission for the film that runs over three hours long. And now the director has sat down with another master filmmaker for a fascinating discussion.

Paul Thomas Anderson, whose film The Master got a special 65mm release as well, sat down with Tarantino for a 40-minute conversation about the fate of 70mm, the future of film in general and some of their greatest movie experiences. It’s a great way to spend some time this holiday weekend. Read More »

Quentin Tarantio cinematography

We all know how annoying it is when a cell phone goes off during the middle of a movie. Now, imagine how much more bothersome it is for a cell to go off during the shooting of a movie. Just think of some actor giving a scene their all, the lighting is perfect, and right before they get the perfect shot.. it’s killed by somebody’s android phone. That must happen, and apparently, it’s occurred more than a few times to Quentin Tarantino.

Learn why the writer-director behind The Hateful Eight doesn’t permit cellular telephones on his sets after the jump.

Mad Max Fury Road - Max and Furiosa

The top 10 list I always look forward to the most towards the end of any year is the one from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. His taste is not only varied, but sometimes a little outside of the box. The director once included Woody Allen‘s Anything Else on a list featuring his favorite movies of the past 20 years or so — which, ever since he did that, has made me want to reevaluate Anything Else. Unlike the past few years, Tarantino has yet to reveal his top picks of the year, but he has declared his love for director George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road.

Read about Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movie of 2015 after the jump.
