It Follows 700 4

Earlier this week, Quentin Tarantino took a moment to critique one of this year’s surprise horror hits, It Follows. “It’s one of those movies that’s so good you get mad at it for not being great,” he started, before going on to explain how he would’ve fixed it. (Short version: Tarantino didn’t think the film did a good job of sticking to its own mythology.)

Now the director of It Follows has responded. And while it’s gotta sting a bit to watch as an acclaimed director picks apart your movie in public, he seems to be handling it pretty well. David Robert Mitchell Quentin Tarantino comments after the jump. Read More »

It Follows

Among the many interesting reveals from Quentin Tarantino‘s recent wide-ranging interview was that he “really liked” David Robert Mitchell‘s indie horror hit It Follows. “It was the best premise I’ve seen in a horror film in a long, long, long time,” said Tarantino.

However, he continued, he had some problems with the premise’s execution: “It’s one of those movies that’s so good you get mad at it for not being great.” So how would Tarantino have made It Follows great? Read the Quentin Tarantino It Follows comments after the jump. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino interview highlights

Quentin Tarantino gave a wide-ranging interview that ran over the weekend, and the outspoken filmmaker had plenty to say about the state of the industry, in addition to speaking about his upcoming film The Hateful Eight.

The most interesting comments in Tarantino’s talk are about that new movie, as he says that it chiefly concerns racial conflict, and as such is very relevant to the strife we’ve seen as cities like Ferguson and Baltimore react to killings of young black men and women by police.

We’ve highlighted eight of the most interesting things Tarantino had to say about his new film, his career, and the state of the industry overall, and you can read those below. Read More »

Quentin Tarantio cinematography

If you’re an observant love of cinema, aside from likely knowing each and every film directed by Quentin Tarantino, you know that it’s fairly easily to recognize his work. This isn’t just because of the extensive dialogue and endless homages to classic, obscure films, but simply by the way he shoots his movies. From dancing scenes to trunk shots to sprawling overhead God’s eye sequences, Tarantino has a very distinct style.

Now a new supercut takes a tributary look at the cinemtography of all of Tarantino’s films, from Reservoir Dogs to his most recent Django Unchained. This slick video highlighting some of the best Quentin Tarantino cinematography will make you want to have a Tarantino marathon very soon. Read More »

Hateful Eight trailer

Here’s the first real trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s eighth film, The Hateful Eight, which stars Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen, and Bruce Dern as a collection of dangerous, unsavory, and possibly untrustworthy characters all holed up in a haberdashery to ride out a blizzard.

When all those people are stuck in a room together, things get tense, threats are made, and some bullets are almost certainly going to fly. And because this is a Tarantino film, you know some colorful dialogue will fill the air as well. With this cast, we can’t wait to hear it. And in case you had any doubt that Robert Richardson‘s 70mm cinematography would be incredible, this footage will set things straight, and quick.

This trailer is great; check it out below. Read More »

Hateful Eight Comic Con panel

While we can’t always see footage shown at Comic Con (official releases akin to the Suicide Squad drop are still not guaranteed) but more and more often we’re able to at least show off videos of big panels minus any footage debuts. Here is the full panel for the new Quentin Tarantino film, The Hateful Eight, which will hit theaters this coming Christmas.

And while other panels were about character descriptions, easter eggs and costumes, this one was for the hardcore film crowd — it was about lenses and projection, and even got into Tarantino’s irritation with the script leak that nearly canceled this film. And it was probably the only Comic Con panel with a mention of Luchino Visconti. Watch the full Hateful Eight Comic Con panel below. Read More »
