If you’re a Quentin Tarantino fan, then you know that there are tiny connections that link all of his movies together so that they all exist in the same universe. Tarantino actually clarified how these connections work earlier this year after The Hateful Eight was in wide release:
“There are actually two separate universes. There’s the realer than real universe, and all the characters inhabit that one. Then there’s this “movie” universe, so From Dusk Till Dawn and Kill Bill take place in this special movie universe. Basically, when the characters from Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction go to the movies, Kill Bill and From Dusk Till Dawn is what they go see.”
Now a stylish new video illustrates perfectly and entertainingly how all these movies are connected by jumping back and forth between them. There are even some of the more subtle references that you may have never picked up on, including some stuff from one of Tarantino’s “lost” movies.

Mondo has again teamed with filmmaker Quentin Tarantino to release a poster print for his latest film, The Hateful Eight. Created by artist Jason Edmiston, we are excited to exclusively premiere this new print, which will be offered as a timed edition — which means that unlike with the usual super limited edition Mondo prints, you’ll have an opportunity to buy one of these if you really want it. And if you like this film you won’t want to miss out. Find out the details on the timed edition and learn about a special insert that will be randomly inserted into one lucky fan’s poster tube.

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 88th annual Academy Awards are this Sunday and this looks to be one of the most contentious ceremonies in years. There are no clear frontrunners in more than a few categories and many of the major nominees have as many detractors as they do boosters. For those who take an interest in awards season, it’s a rollercoaster. A glorious, insane, and frequently infuriating rollercoaster.
And while we here at /Film are not professional awards prognosticators, we are going to dive into this race head-on like the spirited amateurs that we are. We have put aside what we want to win and and have started focusing on what we think will win (which is easier said than done, because we’re team Mad Mad: Fury Road around these parts). We’re going to predict this year’s winners – and whoever gets the most right is going to win a shiny non-prize.

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.
After the jump, read Tarantino’s thoughts on the drama, the state of female directors, and perhaps his favorite writer working today.

It’s no secret Quentin Tarantino‘s films tie together. Forget Red Apple cigarettes, because the connections go deeper than that.

The 2016 Oscar nominations are here and you know what that means: it’s time to start complaining!
To be fair, this year’s nominees gave us a lot to cheer about. Mad Max: Fury Road (/Film’s favorite movie of 2015) walked away with a stunning ten nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Other favorites, like Brooklyn, Spotlight, The Martian, and even Bridge of Spies racked up nods. As with any Oscar year, there was just as much to love as there was to hate.
So let’s give into our hate. And our confusion. And and our total bafflement. Because it wouldn’t be the Oscars without a bunch of big, weird surprises throwing everyone off track and inspiring furious debates about how wrong the Academy is on a yearly basis. Let’s run down the biggest snubs of the year.
