  • This just in: Margot Robbie is wearing clothes

    Movie News | Ali Gray | 7th August 2018

    The first publicity shot of Margot Robbie from Quentin Tarantino‘s new movie Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is in, and I think I can safely say that, wow, that is Margot Robbie all right!

  • The Hateful Eight

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 8th January 2016

    Tarantino movies are primarily known for two things: long, wordy dialogue and extreme, bloody violence. However, the difference in this new drawling epic, is that the two are kept almost entirely separate, with viewers forced to sit for over 90 minutes of bum-numbing scenery-chewing before a first shot is even fired. Still, pacing issues don’t exist in a Tarantino film, do they? Not when every smug, showy word is delivered with all the prestige of a gift-wrapped masterclass in filmmaking, complete with nods to classic films, winks to the audience and middle fingers to the fainthearted. Throw in some cool music, offbeat humour, iconic character moments and some controversial racist themes, and this film delivers everything you expect - and want - from a Tarantino movie. It is quintessential Quentin. It's Quentinssential.

  • Today I learned: Quentin Tarantino was in an episode of The Golden Girls

    Movie News | Ali | 6th June 2013

    I guess this settles it: he's definitely not a Beatles man. Screencapped from an episode of The Golden Girls in 1988 (Sophia's Wedding: Part I) where he played an Elvis impersonator. The DVD belongs to my wife. Shut up.

  • Django Unchained

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 14th January 2013

    I've seen Django Unchained twice now. After the second viewing, I looked back through the notes I'd made after the first, and realised that most of them were now useless. As with a lot of Quentin Tarantino's work, it takes more than one watch to fully form an opinion, but in this case I'd changed my mind almost entirely. I read back through them, crossing out complaints regarding its lengthy, meandering scenes and its jarring refusal to end at its obvious conclusion. But I understand these things better now for what they are: exercises in character development that make this one of its author's richest and most engaging works.

  • Tom Hooper still waiting patiently for his turn to talk

    Movie Feature | Ali | 3rd January 2013

    Something tells us he'll be waiting a while. (HT @NevPierce for the gif)

  • Final trailer for Django Unchained features rap, funk, GUNS

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 29th November 2012

    (*makes gun fingers*) Pew pew! (*laughs*) Hey, you're meant to pew pew back! Pew pew! (*looks at smoke coming from fingers, body on floor*) Oh my God it's happening again BRAAAAAHHHHHHM

  • Sexually confusing Django Unchained poster head-swap of the day

    "Look at my tits, I double dare you, motherfucker." Making the most of the new Django Unchained posters, because Friday. (Via /Film).

  • Films on TV round-up: robots, vampires and WAR

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 29th May 2011

    By astonishing coincidence, the key themes of this week's three featured films are exactly those of the script I've been trying to get Hollywood interested in: 'Last Cyborg Out of Saigon: The Bloodsuckening'. Spent three days shopping it round Cannes but there wasn't much take-up, if I'm honest. I mean, I'm not saying it's Citizen Kane or anything but you'd think I'd at least get a call-back off Michael Bay, right?

  • Films on TV round-up: one-armed men and one-man armies

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 22nd May 2011

    Yeah, pretty clever headline, right? I almost got a job writing headlines for the Daily Mail once, but it fell through because I only knew three synonyms for 'gypsies'.

  • Tarantino talks Kill Bill 3

    Movie News | Matt | 2nd October 2009

    QT has announced plans to make Kill Bill 3. "But hasn't The Bride already killed Bill?" I hear you ask. Who cares about plot when there are ninjas to fight and obscure Korean films to reference!
