Let’s get this daftness out of the way first: The Sun, a British tabloid newspaper from Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., is reporting that Quentin Tarantino wants to cast Helen Mirren as a foul-mouthed queen in a medieval-era project. Really, The Sun? What on earth inspired that story, I do not know. Not that I wouldn’t like to see such a film, mind.

Elsewhere in awful British news rags, The Daily Mail have unveiled Tarantino’s (current) Top 11 Films of 2009, an update on the Top 8 films he offered at the tail end of the year.

Here they are:

  • Avatar
  • Star Trek
  • Drag Me To Hell
  • Funny People
  • Zombieland
  • Chocolate
  • Observe and Report (Bamigboye transcribed this as Observing the Fort!)
  • The Hurt Locker
  • Julie And Julia
  • Up In The Air
  • District 9

Hard to argue that any of those are duds, I think most of you will agree. He’s not just added three films, however – there’s been quite a bit of rejigging going on. Personally, I was most pleased to see Julie and Julia on the list because it’s excellent and, alongside Drag Me to Hell, the film on his list that made my top 10 too.

Video Blog: ShoWest 2009

I just got back from ShowWest in Las Vegas. ShoWest is a convention for theater owners where, among other things, Hollywood previews some of their upcoming movies. You’ve seen some of my ShoWest overage on the site over the last week, but there was so much going on that I couldn’t get to it all. Frosty from Collider joins me in this video blog wrap-up, where we take a look at nearly everything that we saw over the course of the four day convention. We broke it into two parts because it runs a little bit long. Here is some of the stuff we talked about:

Neill Blomkamp’s District 9, Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes, Tron 2 3-D, Beauty and the Beast in 3-D, Angels & Demons,  G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, Woody Allen’s new film Whatever Works, The Hurt Locker, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, The Hangover, Terminator Salvation, Robert Zemeckis’ A Christmas Carol, Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, The Proposal, The Princess and the Frog, Men in Black 3, Spider-Man 4, Ghostbusters 3, The Ugly Truth, Julie and Julia, and The Year One.

In the last 5 minutes of the video, George (El Guapo) from Latino Review, Alex from First Showing, Ed from Coming Soon, and Katey from Cinemablend make a cameo appearance and briefly discuss their favorite things from the con. A big thanks goes to Katey Rich for producing this segment. She did the camera work and helped us organize the talking points. Without her, we would have been babbling even more than we did. Part 2 is after the jump.
