Shock: Tarantino Says The Bride Will Be Back

1 10 2009


Though in recent years his buddy Robert Rodriguez has taken the crown of promised projects never completed, Quentin Tarantino is in the hall of fame. Be it the Vega Brothers sequel, his proposed spaghetti western project, a Kill Bill anime or his ability to constantly disappoint fans with his DVD releases (it took five years to get Jackie Brown on DVD and we still  haven’t gotten Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair or a Grindhouse box set), Tarantino is the master in his field. This past year alone he has talked about a prequel to Inglourious Basterds as a mini-series a la Band of Brothers, and now he is back to the classics, bringing back the idea of another bride’s tale in Kill Bill Vol. 3.

Trailer: Black Dynamite

10 09 2009

Black Dynamite

Who doesn’t love a little blaxploitation now and again? Especially throwback blaxploitation that appears to hilariously mock the genre while giving it respect. Enter Black Dynamite, certainly one of our most anticipated releases since its first trailer was shown earlier this year prior to its entry in the Sundance Film Festival, where it got huge ovations and great praise.

The film looks like a cross between Jackie Brown and Grindhouse (You know QT will be on this like white on rice), but hopefully it does better in theaters than its predecessors. The film’s distribution and release announcement was one of our happiest moments on this site, so all you jive turkeys better rush out and see it on October 16th. In the meantime, check out the final (and official) trailer after the jump.

Weekend Review: Inglourious Basterds

24 08 2009

Inglourious Basterds

Say what you will about Quentin Tarantino, but the man knows how to put his mark on a movie. Be it his obsessive foot fetish, Mexican stand-offs, obsessively long shots, or lineage-connecting characters, it isn’t hard to pick one of his films out of a line-up.

With a mix of all of the above plus some larger-than-life characters with crackling dialogue, Inglourious Basterds is no different. Read the rest of this entry »

Weekend Preview: It’s A Good Time To Be A Basterd

21 08 2009

Earlier this week, Tarantino was making a huff, saying that today was meant to be Inglourious Basterds day, not Avatar day. Count on him to stop complaining when everyone who has gone to the movies to see Avatar decides to stick around for a screening of his film. Analysts have predicted a $30 million weekend for the war film, but I think it will go a bit north of that. Your weekend preview is after the jump.

Inglourious Basterds Comic in Playboy

17 08 2009

Inglourious Basterds

Inglourious Basterds is coming out this Friday and, as a promotion, Playboy has printed a “graphic-novel treatment” of one of the scenes involving a captured-yet-stubborn German that the Aldo Raine led Basterds are trying to get information from. The illustrated scene is taken directly from the film, so if you want to go in pure I may recommend skipping it, but it truly doesn’t give that much away.

The comic was drawn by R. M. Guera, a Serbian artist who has done a great deal of work all over the globe, but is currently working on the Vertigo comic “Scalped”, which is somewhat ironic given what the Basterds keep as trophies.

The link after the jump goes to the Playboy website, so it would be ill-advised to open the link if your internet activity is monitored at work. Instead, just wait until you get home. Read the rest of this entry »

Watch It!: Inglourious Plumbers

14 08 2009

Inglourious Plumbers

There are two things I know for certain in our uncertain world: geeks love Mario and geeks love Tarantino. Why is this? Because Mario is made for geeks and Tarantino is a geek.

With those two facts in mind, it comes as no surprise that someone, specifically, someone at Gamervision, created this mash-up of the trailer to Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and the world’s favorite plumber/princess/mushroom team. Check it out after the jump.

Warning: May contain multiple mustaches.
