every quentin tarantino character ranked

Every single Quentin Tarantino character is full of life. Look to the fringes of his films and you’ll find supporting characters with more personality and spark than leading characters in other movies. Minor characters, who appear for a single scene and vanish forever, are given lines of dialogue that would be the highlight of other films. Few living filmmakers stack their films with so many memorable names and faces.

And with his new movie, The Hateful Eight, about to hit theaters, it’s time to something really, really dumb: rank every single Quentin Tarantino character of any significance from worst to best. Bear with me. This is going to take awhile.

VOTD: The Significance & Importance of Movie Props

Pulp Fiction - Christopher Walken

While there are certain movie props such as a lightsaber, a time machine or a briefcase that have become iconic pieces of cinema, it’s easy to forget that movie props are everywhere when we’re looking at any single frame of a motion picture. Sometimes a movie prop is so important that it’s in the title of the film and the driving force of the entire story, as with The Maltese Falcon or Raiders of the Lost Ark, and other times they just add to the authenticity of any given scene.

A new video essay takes a look at the importance of movie props on film, whether they’re big or small, subtle or in your face and how they enhance the characters, story or setting of films across the board. Watch! Read More »

Craig Drake Solo Show II 8

Craig Drake‘s work can stop you in your tracks. Drake uses what feels like a bare minimum of elements to perfectly represent his subject in a striking and distinctive way. You might call it “minimalist,” but that would be a discredit to the energy contained in each piece.

In 2014, Drake had a very-well received solo show at the Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles. A few of the pieces even made my best of the year list. This year, the did a follow up show that contained even more beautiful work based on properties we all know and love. Stuff like Star Wars, Tron, Kill Bill, Akira, Pulp Fiction and more. Below, check out images from the latest Craig Drake Solo Show. Read More »
