Once upon a time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantino had dreams of combining the worlds of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction into The Vega Brothers. Michael Madsen‘s character in Reservoir Dogs and John Travolta‘s character in Pulp Fiction both had the same last name – Vega – and Tarantino very much wanted to team the two actors up for a prequel movie (it would have to be a prequel, since both Vega Brothers die in their respective films). Alas, it never came to be. Tarantino has dropped tidbits about the abandoned project over the years, and now Michael Madsen has offered up even more details.

Even though plenty of people are anxious to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 12 days, let’s not forget that one week later we’ll get to see another of the highly anticipated films of 2015. Quentin Tarantino has his eighth film getting a unique release beginning on December 25th with The Hateful Eight getting a 70mm roadshow release (with specific location details yet to be officially revealed) that includes extra footage and an intermission.
But if you’re a little impatient, you can watch eight minutes of The Hateful Eight clips right now to hold you over until Chtistmas gets here. It certainly won’t look as good as it will on a 70mm projection, but it’s the best we can do. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino‘s new film The Hateful Eight sounds in many ways like a return to his roots: it’s nearly a closed-room argument, with an ensemble cast battling out their differences in, if Tarantino’s reputation is anything to go by, increasingly violent ways. That ensemble cast is perhaps better than ever, with Tim Roth providing a link to Tarantino’s debut Reservoir Dogs, and Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Michael Madsen, Bruce Dern, with a small turn from Channing Tatum.
And then there’s Kurt Russell, who looks more awesome than ever in this role — and that’s saying a lot, considering his history. See him and just about everyone else in new Hateful Eight images below. Read More »
Netflix and Nintendo are at work potentially developing a TV series based on The Legend of Zelda. The news broke last week and got video game fans salivating. Sure there was a short lived Zelda TV show many years ago, but a Nintendo property hasn’t been adapted into a big budget, live-action…well…anything since the early Nineties. And The Legend of Zelda has long been at the top of fan’s wish lists for a new show of movie.
But what is the show going to be? All we know at the moment is Nintendo and Netflix want a family friendly show with the aesthetic of Game of Thrones. Okay, but how old will Link be? Zelda? Which will be the main character? Is Ganon the bad guy? What story will they use? At this point, without a script or showrunner, all options are likely on the table.
Since most of The Legend of Zelda games are about younger characters, that how we went with our casting wishlist. We tried to pick actors who, for the most part, aren’t super famous but are age appropriate. Actors both in the box and way outside it. The resulting list features lots of people who you may or may not have heard of, but you wouldn’t be surprised to hear were cast on a Netflix show. That’s not to say we didn’t stretch here or there.
So below, we’ve got our own Legend of Zelda Netflix casting wishlist for Link, Zelda, Ganon and then a writer/showrunner/director type. Check it out. Read More »

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we ponder what happens when first contact is made, deal with rape on college campuses, get fatherly advice from Vincent Cassel on how to raise an assassin, explore a moment in underground pop culture, and spend some time with a man who made sense of the Ben Affleck/Bill Maher tussle.
