If Quentin Tarantino stays true to his plan, there’s only one more movie that the writer and director wants to make before he retires. Of course, Steven Soderbergh talked about retirement for years, and we all saw how that went, so maybe there’s nothing to worry about. But while we wait for the eventual 10th (and potentially) final film from Quentin Tarantino, why not look back at every single film he’s directed through the lens of Honest Trailers. And yes, there’s plenty of feet in the video to go around. Read More »
It’s almost time to kick November to the curb, and the year of 2019 with it not long after. But first we have to get through December. A new month can bring many things – but it can take things away, too. Like, uh…movies. On Netflix. In December, several great titles are leaving the streaming service, some of which will head on over to Disney+. So if you’ve been sitting on these titles for months, you might want to catch up on them now. Here are the TV shows and movies leaving Netflix in December 2019

Robert Forster has been kicking around Hollywood since the late 1960s. But it wouldn’t be until after decades of ups and downs later that his career would get the respect it deserved after starring in Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown in 1997. Since then, Forster has brought his chiseled chin to an eclectic array of film. But on the day of his return to the world of Breaking Bad in the Netflix original El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, we’re sad to report that Robert Forster passed away at age 78. Read More »

Pulp Fiction (’94) changed the face of cinema forever. Though that’s become something of a clichéd declaration amongst cinephiles, the statement nonetheless contains an immeasurable volume of truth. While Quentin Tarantino’s first completed feature, Reservoir Dogs (’92), underperformed in the United States – its foulmouthed, hyper-violent tendencies contributing to a notorious reputation and cult following on VHS – the Sundance darling was a gigantic hit in Europe, with London and Paris theatrical engagements running for months at a time. When Pulp Fiction landed at the Cannes Film Festival, it did so with the impact of an atomic bomb, blowing critics’ minds and making a rock star out of its video store clerk turned geek chic co-writer/director.
Pulp Fiction was produced for a cool $8 million, going on to gross over $200 million worldwide. It caused a ruckus at Cannes, winning the festival’s highest honor while one onlooker screamed “scandal!” from the back row, flipping its director the bird. Miramax Films was instantly dubbed “the house that Tarantino built,” as the indie label now had the clout (not to mention the capital) to start chasing Oscar contenders it became notorious for representing throughout the rest of its Weinstein-headed existence. A wave of imitators flooded in – just look at something like 2 Days In the Valley (’96) for the most shameless example – and everyone wondered what Tarantino would do to follow up his self-aware filmic pop amalgamation.
The answer wasn’t as simple as everyone thought when Jackie Brown (’97) premiered on Christmas Day three years later.

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.

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.
