Slow motion is used so often today that it’s easy to forget that filmmakers use it as a storytelling tool beyond making action simply look cool.

It’s no secret that Quentin Tarantino steals from other movies to inspire his own. The filmmaker has admitted so himself, and he doesn’t care what you think:
I steal from every movie ever made. I love it – if my work has anything it’s that I’m taking this from this and that from that and mixing them together. If people don’t like that, then tough titty, don’t go and see it, alright? I steal from everything. Great artists steal; they don’t do homages.
And his latest film, The Hateful Eight, is no exception. But since Tarantino likes to reference some more obscure films, one cinephile has put together a guide to the movie references the filmmaker made in his western. Read More »

The Intern was a box-office hit. Nancy Meyers‘ film, which cost $35M, made over $190M at the worldwide box-office. This huge success isn’t that surprising, considering Meyers’ history of making hits. What is maybe a little surprising is how fond director Quentin Tarantino is of the film.

As it slowly limps out of theaters, Quentin Tarantino‘s The Hateful Eight feels destined to go down as the director’s most divisive film. Critics and audiences were split. It made /Film’s top 10 of 2015 but won’t earn half of what Django Unchained grossed at the box office.

With the notable exception of the long break he took between Jackie Brown and Kill Bill Vol. 1, the always-controversial filmmaker typically has had another movie ready to go two or three years after his previous release. Could his next movie be a gangster movie set in 1930s Australia? Because he’s talking about that now.
