the hateful eight iphone

Before Quentin Tarantino permanently severed ties with The Weinstein Company in the wake of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Tarantino was shopping around his 2015 film The Hateful Eight to a few other distributors. But one particularly egregious pitch from Universal may have driven Tarantino back into the arms of The Weinstein Company (Tarantino would later depart for good and make Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with Sony). But things might have been very different if then-Universal head Jeff Shell hadn’t pitched to Tarantino the idea of releasing The Hateful Eight on iPhones.

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 »

Most Underrated Movies of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.)

What makes a movie underrated? In a literal sense, a good movie with overwhelming poor reviews is underrated. But there’s more to it than that. There can be movies that are fairly well received, and yet, they feel unloved; ignored; overlooked. So when it came time to compile a list of the most underrated movies of the decade, I decided not to just focus on the titles I felt deserved better reviews, but also films that deserved more love; more attention. Movies that were viewed by wide audiences, and yet were misunderstood. As the 2010s end, it’s time to give these movies their due. They’re presented below alphabetically.

hateful eight netflix mini-series

A month ago, word arrived that an extended version of Quentin Tarantino‘s 2015 Western The Hateful Eight would be arriving on Netflix. Many (including this writer) assumed this was going to be the Roadshow Cut – a cut that played in limited theatrical release, and was never released on home video. But that’s not what happened.

Instead, The Hateful Eight arrived on Netflix broken into a miniseries, consisting of four episodes. How, and why, did this happen? And was Tarantino involved? It turns out he was. The filmmaker curated and oversaw the new miniseries cut himself.

Tarantino spoke to /Film exclusively about how the Hateful Eight Netflix miniseries came together. The filmmaker also spoke of a new director’s cut of another one of his films, and whether or not he’s going to make that rumored Star Trek movie.

the hateful eight extended version

Last month, we got word that the extended version of The Hateful Eight was coming to Netflix. This was a momentous occasion, because this version of the film had only previously been released in a limited theatrical roadshow version. The Netflix release would mark the first time the extended cut of Quentin Tarantino’s violent Western would ever be available in home media form. Now, the extended version is here…sort of.

For some baffling reason, rather than provide this cut as a full movie, Netflix has broken it up into a mini-series with four episodes. The big question is: why?

Best Christmas Movies Streaming Right Now

(Welcome to Now Stream This, a column dedicated to the best movies streaming on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, and every other streaming service out there.) 

I don’t want to alarm you, but I have some shocking news: it’s currently the holiday season. Yes, I can’t believe it either, but here we are. The utterly bonkers year that was 2017 is almost gone, but before it goes we’ll have to muddle through the holiday season somehow. The holidays can be a stressful time for some people: there’s the hassle of finding the perfect gift for loved ones, mixed with lousy weather, congested traffic and the existential dread of the looming new year. My advice? Relieve some of that stress with movies. After all, movies are the reason for the season (please don’t correct me on this, I’m sure this is correct).

In the spirit of giving, I’ve compiled a list of Christmas movies for you to stream as we run out the clock on 2017. These aren’t your traditional Christmas movies, though. The films compiled here are primarily what I’d like to call alternative Christmas movies. In other words, a lot of these are Christmas movies for people who don’t like Christmas movies. But don’t worry, I made sure to throw in one or two traditional tales of holiday cheer just in case.

Here are the best Christmas movies streaming right now! Let’s get streaming.
