quentin tarantino blockbusters

Following Quentin Tarantino‘s swan song to Old Hollywood, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director is declaring war on the blockbusters that rule New Hollywood. Tarantino is throwing his support behind Martin Scorsese’s ongoing criticism of Marvel films and their domination of the pop culture landscape, suggesting in a new interview that there is a “war for movies” taking place between “original” filmmaking and the “commercial product” owned by conglomerates.

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 »

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood extended cut

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is already a long movie, but it’s about to get even longer. Quentin Tarantino shot a lot of footage for his latest film, and there’s a chance we might get to see it all in about a year. Rumors of an extended cut of Hollywood have abounded ever since the film premiered, including the potential for a Netflix miniseries release – something Tarantino did for an extended version of The Hateful Eight. During a recent Q&A, Tarantino confirmed that a longer cut does indeed exist, and it might be released.

2020 Golden Globes Videos

The 77th Golden Globes were held yesterday and there were certainly some surprises among the winners during one of Hollywood’s big awards nights. There were some phenomenal speeches from special honorees like Ellen DeGeneres and Tom Hanks, as well as winners like actress Michelle Williams and Parasite director Bong Joon-ho. But perhaps the most buzzed about part of the night was a scathing monologue from host and comedian Ricky Gervais, who pointed fingers at the hypocrisy, sexism and other issues that have run rampant through Hollywood. Watch the 2020 Golden Globes videos below. Read More »

tarantino dunkirk

The denizens of Film Twitter aren’t the only folks out there ranking their best movies of the last decade. Quentin Tarantino decided to get in on the action as well, stopping by The Ringer’s Rewatchables podcast to sing the praises of Christopher Nolan‘s Dunkirk. Tarantino says that Nolan’s World War II epic is his number two movie of the decade – a revelation that seems to even surprise Tarantino himself.

tarantino star trek update

We probably should’ve seen this coming. Remember that R-rated Quentin Tarantino Star Trek movie? The one that was in the works at Paramount? The one that Tarantino said he was planning to direct on multiple occasions? Well…it’s probably not happening. Tarantino now says he’s “steering away” from the project, which means we’ll probably never get to see his take on Trek.

Jack Black Retiring

Jack Black can be seen hamming it up on the big screen yet again this weekend in Jumanji: The Next Level. As we’ve seen in the trailers, he’s not just playing a video game avatar inhabited by a teenage girl again, but also the same video game avatar as played by a young black high school football star. Black has been a reliable goofball for years now, but it sounds like we might soon see the end of his tenure on the big screen. There’s a chance the actor may only have one more movie left in him before calling it quits. Read More »

kill bill 3

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.
