Quentin Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight is one of the year’s most hotly anticipated remaining releases, just as any new feature from the less-than-prolific auteur must be. The recent unveiling of a new trailer...
Yes, yes, there’s a new Star Wars movie next month — but there’s also a new Quentin Tarantino film! The marketing for The Hateful Eight (thankfully) hasn’t been as prolific as Disney’s push for The Force Awakens, but today brings the first TV spot and a new poster to get you in a very particular sort of holiday spirit.
Quentin Tarantino originally wanted Kevin Costner to square off with his hero, but when his schedule wouldn’t let him appear in the film he was replaced by Kurt Russell. When Kurt Russell’s schedule wouldn’t let him appear in the film, the character, named Ace Woody, was completely written out of the script. That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which is on a quest for revenge (and to bring you this information about Tarantino’s Django Unchained).
Quentin Tarantino has enjoyed a long and successful career since he arrived in the early ’90s, from writing the screenplay for 1993's True Romance to confidently establishing his aesthetic with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. Joining greats like Stanley Kubrick, John Ford, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen and more, Tarantino will also serve as the subject of his very own, fully authorized documentary.
One of the most famous scenes in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs is the opening diner sequence, where the group of gangsters debate the meaning of Madonna’s 1986 hit “True Blue.” After watching the film, Madonna sent Tarantino a signed copy of her album Erotica with the note, “To Quentin, It’s about love, not dicks.” That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, so turn up K-Billy’s Super Sounds of the 70s and get to know more about Reservoir Dogs!
Quentin Tarantino’s eighth movie is named The Hateful Eight. How perfect is that?
On Saturday, Tarantino flew into New York from his home in Los Angeles to make an appearance at a rally protesting instances of police brutality in the city.
Quentin Tarantino, along with Paul Thomas Anderson, is one of the few filmmakers fighting to preserve the essence of film. We already knew that Tarantino fans and cinephiles will get a special treat this holiday season when his upcoming The Hateful Eight opens early for a limited 70mm presentation in approximately 100 retrofitted theaters. But those who catch the western in its Ultra Panavision film format will also be treated to an extended cut of the movie.
Most movie fans love Netflix because it allows them a rotating library of movies plus original shows to stream instantly for a fixed price. But the king of all the movie fans, Quentin Tarantino, says he’s never used Netflix and has no plans to. He’s still watching his movies on VHS and DVD thankyouverymuch.
Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction was groundbreaking in many ways, particularly in the way its characters talked. The film uses the F-word 265 times, which in 1994 was second only to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, which had 300. In the years since Pulp Fiction hit theaters, the usage of the word spiked and now Pulp Fiction is not even listed among the Top 25. That’s just one of the surprising facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, so grab a Royale With Cheese and get to know more about Pulp Fiction!
