Honest Trailer for Every Quentin Tarantino Movie

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 »

Quentin Tarantino loves to talk about potential projects. I like to imagine he has an entire file cabinet filled with them, and whenever he’s feeling frisky he pops it open to give us a tease. The filmmaker swears that he’s retiring from directing, but he also has several possible films he may or may not make – like a Star Trek movie, for instance. And then there’s Kill Bill 3, a project he’s been teasing for many, many years. And he’s apparently still thinking about it. Tarantino recently revealed that a third volume in the Kill Bill story is “definitely in the cards”, but it won’t happen for a while – if it happens at all.

kill bill 3 update

Quentin Tarantino is retiring. Unless he isn’t. He’s also making a Star Trek movie. Maybe. The fact is, no one really knows what the future holds for the filmmaker, but there’s plenty of speculation – most of it from Tarantino himself. The latest film to add to the “maybe” pile is Kill Bill Vol. 3, something Tarantino has toyed with in the past. In a new interview, the director revealed that he and star Uma Thurman had very recently discussed Kill Bill 3. Whether or not it actually gets made is another story.

Summer is pretty much in full swing, and even though there are plenty of movies hitting theaters for blockbuster season, there are even more you can watch at home on Netflix. However, some of the titles in Netflix’s library won’t be around much longer, especially when it comes to Disney titles leaving now that the deal with the streaming service is coming to an end. This time one of the more popular Marvel Studios titles is heading out, as well as a couple Quentin Tarantino favorites, a modern sci-fi classic, and more. Read More »

I can pinpoint the exact moment I became a fan of Quentin Tarantino’s work. It wasn’t in the 1990s, though Tarantino’s influence reigned hard that decade and I had an appreciation for his films, if not an outright love for them. No, my conversion came at a theater on opening day, October 10, 2003, when I watched something completely unexpected happened in an early scene of Kill Bill, Vol. 1, starring Uma Thurman.

Being a fan of a celebrity and a fan of his or her work are two different things. That’s an important distinction to make in 2018. This time last year, the Harvey Weinstein scandal was just beginning to unfold. As the effect of it spread through Hollywood and the culture at large, Thurman herself would become the subject of a New York Times article revealing a “dark undercurrent that twisted the triangle” of her, Tarantino, and Weinstein. In the midst of a societal paradigm shift, it would renew the debate about separating art from the artist and whether or not that’s possible or even appropriate.

Fifteen years later, the character of The Bride, “created by Q & U,” or Quentin and Uma, has taken on new meaning as an icon of what Thurman called “survival energy.” From the opening shot of Kill Bill, Vol. 1, she’s a woman subjected to rough treatment, forced to run a gauntlet of victimizers in an attempt to endure and prevail.
