I see DRIVE made over $13 million in France, Jox. That's a huge amount for this kind of movie, considering the population.

Spike Lee visits Wesley Snipes in Prison.

 

Counting down the days till the Snipester gets out. No more Art of War sequels though.

 

With regards to INGLORIOUS BASTARDS. The "Putting Out The Fire" scene with Shoshana is one of the most iconic and well shot sequences in recent memory. Melanie Laurent looks awesome in that red dress and the David Bowie song fits the scene perfectly.

Hey Guys, Aside from...Kill Bill, Kill Bill 2, and Pulp Fiction, the other Tarantino Film I...Love, is...Death Proof!  I disliked Jackie Brown, and was let down by how much the uninteresting lead actresses story was.  There are plenty of serious WW2 films, I wanted Inglorious Basterds to be like it's inspiration...The Dirty Dozen, like Tarantino was originally discussing.  It didn't have to be...All Action, just...All Basterds!  Brad Pitt, and The Bear Jew, were my...2 favorite characters from that film!  I have...ZERO interest in Django!  If there is a...Kill Bill 3, I would...Love to see that!

He's about 1 year, 4 months from freedom. Hopefully he calls in favours from Guillermo Del Toro, or Antoine Fuqua and comes back with a bang.

Yeah that was a huge surprise hit over here (and about the same as THE EXPENDABLES for comparison) for some reason, big opening week and word of mouth, totally unexpected though it's totally deserved of course.

I figured this would be of interest: Billy Drago, an appreciation. :)

Nice find.  

 

It's the team up you've all been waiting for.  Van Damme and that psycho stalker chick from FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS.   Maybe his new reality show will be about her stalking him around the world...

Beautiful.

 

Going back to the QT talk, my annoyance sometimes has less to do with the films themselves, but more with people over-reaction to them.  I have felt that despite certain moments/performances, he has been hitting below target since Pulp Fiction.  Films like Lethal Weapon and The Matrix may have been heavily influenced by other titles, but they feel like their own films.  QT's insistence on non-linear narratives compound the feeling that you're sometimes watching a cut-and-paste exercise.  His strength is the Elmore Leonard inspired character exchanges, but in Death Proof, this was pure agony when Kurt Russell wasn't around.

 

What soured me on him personally was his Best Of lists for last year.  He's fully entitled to like/hate what he wants, that explains some of odd choices in his bottom and top 10s.  His 'Nice Try' list reeked of someone who has bought his own hype.  Two of the films he listed (Hanna and Drive) are, to me, better then anything he done in a while.  It's almost as if he finds a little subtlety offensive.

 

The positive things about his work include: Making Sam Jackson a star and giving him some of his best roles; giving Kurt Russell his best role in YEARS; raising awareness for the film he 'borrows' from, as a result they get bigger releases then they otherwise would have; giving forgotten or undervalued actors a big role in his films, David Carradine's Bill is the best example.

 

Overall, i'm glad he's becoming more productive.  But a great film-maker he is not.  Yet............

I liked Drive enough to put it on my top 10, but I've heard some well-reasoned arguments against its style, so Tarantino is not alone. I mean, for all the things Refn says about it being a homage to To Live and Die in L.A. or Thief, it's honestly nothing like those films. In any way. And I think that was a problem the film's detractors from this thread had. There was a great negative review somewhere -- I'll never find it, since I linked to it when the movie was in theaters -- by someone who really refuted the idea that a foreigner should devise an American action film that was frequently the antithesis of action.

post #81412 of 107738
I think DOGS, PULP FICTION, KILL BILL and BASTERDS are more than enough to qualify QT as a great film-maker. Yes, he comes off as an ass sometimes, but most of the time it's just his enthusiasm for movies. His 'nice try' igomment is quite condescending though. It sounds like he doesn't want other directors playing in his ballpark.
post #81413 of 107738

I loved Drive and Hanna, but to suggest they're better than Inglourious Basterds is wrong wrong wrongity wrongensons.

Just my opinion.  I found them to be more efficiently told stories and less pretentious.  An argument could made that they're all Fairy Tales/Fantasy films.

 

Also, Eli Roth isn't in either of those films.  That problem has been covered here several times, though.

post #81419 of 107738

Didn't outright hate, but didn't love Drive. Inglourious Basterds was well made and the long talks never sounded boring at all. Can't say the same for Death Proof. First half of that movie is BOOOORRRRRIIIIINNNNGGG, and the second half is awesome. Yeah, I'm one of those people.

 

 

The Last Hunter is pretty great, Elvis. You'll love it. David Warbeck is awesome as always.

What Tarantino has that 99.9% of his imitators don't is an encyclopedic knowledge of the films he's referencing and where those filmmakers came up with the riffs, and the influences that inspired them, and so on and so forth. Too many filmmakers just replicate what they saw, and usually what they saw was endearingly shitty already, so then you have a bunch of people doing a spoof of something they all just think is shitty, and the result is even shittier.

 

--

 

Also, my memory has always been that Rourke was supposed to do Death Proof. Doesn't matter either way, Kurt is great.

 

--

 

I saw John Carter, which was pretty good, and 21 Jump Street, which might be (for me) the funniest action-comedy since Hot Fuzz.


Completely agreed on QT.  He could easily point to any reference in his film and tell you exactly what he was referencing and every other film that references the same bit or was heavily influenced by the same material.  The biggest difference between Tarantino and his imitators is that 99.9% of the time he knows how to use those references in a different and interesting way, as opposed to simply regurgitating what came before.

 

On Death Proof...........................Quentin wrote DP with Mickey Rourke in mind for Stuntman Mike.  The early faux promo poster that he had done up even has Rourke's name on it.  My understanding is that Rourke flirted with signing on, but decided to get really ballsy and demanded a bunch of changes to the script.  They ended up having a falling out and I really doubt Tarantino will be going back to Rourke again anytime soon with a role.  Mickey has burned that bridge.  Hell, Mickey has burned most of the bridges he had with talented filmmakers.  The only ones actively pursuing him for roles still are Tony Scott and Robert Rodriguez...............and I suspect the latter is about to give up on him as well.  I suspect that within the next five years, Mr. Go Play With Yourself is going to find his career in the same shitpile it was in at the end of the 80s......................and for the expect same reasons: ego and greed.  I find it hilarious reading any interview with him around the time The Wrestler caught on.  He seemed so humble and dead set on making the best of his comeback.  So much for that!  Anyway, Rourke passed and Quentin took the role to Sly.  Stallone passed due to scheduling conflicts and Quentin was supposedly out of ideas at the time.  Apparently Rodriguez was the one who suggested he try to get Kurt Russell and the rest is history!

 

As for 21 Jump Street, I think both you and Joon have finally convinced me to make it a point to see that sucker in theaters.

Unless he shoots it in a crazed fashion, Django isn't going to be "pulpy".  Quick and brutal with a dark sense of humor is a better way to describe the script as written.

Unless this sucker gets off the ground in the next couple of months, there's no way it's getting released in 2012.  I don't even think they have leads yet, unfortunately.  A few current action star-esque actors have flirted with the project, but as far as I know none of them officially signed on yet.

 

post #81421 of 107738

So fucking sad that Mickey "Go play with yourself" Rourke burned that bridge with Tarantino. Guy is TAILOR MADE for being a sleazy degenerate in Django Unchained.

post #81422 of 107738

Can't really find fault with much of anything Tarantino has done behind the camera. DOGS through KB2 is a legendary run. DEATH PROOF is a bit uneven and committed the cardinal sin of making Zoe Bell believe she should act, but Kurt alone is enough for me to enjoy it. INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is pretty much perfect as is.

 

If I had one knock on Tarantino it would be I don't enjoy listening to him being interviewed as much as I used to. When PULP came out it was fascinating to hear him talk about film. That interview he did with Charlie Rose that's on the PULP DVD and Blu-Ray is still something I watch every couple of years. But now he definitely has a smugness about him that is sort of a turn-off. I can see why he exudes that aura, nearly 20 years of people telling you that you redefined cinema will lead you to actually believe it.

People thought Sergio Leone could only do westerns, until he made a classic gangster picture (Once Upon A Time in America).

People thought Scorsese could only make gritty New York films, until he made (among others) The Last Temptation of Christ, Kundun and eventually Hugo.

 

I'm always fascinated when a filmmaker steps outside his comfort zone.  Sometimes, the results can be a wreck but sometimes the artist can bloom when they leap into a larger world.

 

Again, I'm a Tarantino fan.  What he does, he does exceedingly well.  And I'd love to see him do something truly uniquely personal. 

 


 

I understand what you're saying... I just think that his movies ARE deeply personal.  That's him, the film geek, through and through.

Honestly, the fact that he is FINALLY tackling spaghetti western territory full-on has me as giddy as a school girl.

post #81425 of 107738

I'm still rooting for Mickey Rourke. I mean I've been down since DINER. But this bridge burning is legendary for its self-destructive insanity. I hope there's another talented filmmaker out there allowed a chance to get a performance such as THE WRESTLER out of him.

 

About to watch TAKE SHELTER, and there was a trailer beforehand for a movie that I'd never heard of, but looked pretty interesting RETREAT. There's a worldwide apocalyptic epidemic, and the survivors on a vacation spot island must try to deal/escape. I'm curious to give it a shot next time I'm in the video store.

Wow. I can't say I had ever heard of him appearing in drag in any of his movies, but after looking it up, he did indeed do that in 1991's Breathing Fire, something that I understand is pretty terrible but besides him being in drag, he fights Short Round from Temple of Doom! That almost makes me want to watch it now.

I hadn't even heard of the movie until just now but it does sound interesting, even if I say Drive wasn't as awesome as others say it is. Hopefully it'll at least have a lot of style and a cool soundtrack.

Interesting discussion going on regarding QT, from all sides.

post #81428 of 107738

If someone gave me a chance to make movies. Well, I think we all know what kind of brilliant insanity I'd create. I'd never let myself turn into a smug bastard though. I'd want to be like Sly and be funny and humble. Even though Sly at one time was as smug bastard.

 

Bob Plissken and I were discussing Rourke on facebook, and that led me to pop on Year Of The Dragon since I haven't seen it in a while. It was one of my picks in the action draft we did a few years back. A poster of Year Of The Dragon was also my first avatar on here when I joined back in 2006. So yeah, it's kind of one of my favorite movies of all time.

 

 

Here's a picture of Rourke I found on Google.

Weinsteins to remake THE MAN FROM NOWHERE:

Quote:
LOS ANGELES, March 8 (TheWrap.com) - "The Man From Nowhere," an action thriller that was South Korea's highest-grossing movie of 2010, is being remade in English, Dimension Films said Thursday.

"We have always been huge action and martial arts fans and are getting back into the genre in a big way with 'The Man From Nowhere,' " Bob Weinstein, The Weinstein Company's co-chairman, said in a statement. "It's a slick, fast-paced action thriller anchored by a strong emotional relationship that audiences are going to love."

The Weinstein Company owns Dimension and has hired Shawn Christensen ("Abduction") to write the script.

The Korean film is about a pawn shop owner who takes on a drug-and-organ trafficking ring to save his only friend, a child.

 

As I always say, when you want to remake a nifty Korean action flick you hire the writer of ABDUCTION.

The film has Jerry Trimble in it as well.  Short Round (Jonathan Ke Quan) is the lead and it was reasonably fun b-picture.  

 

The drag disguise is for a Bank robbery and he makes his mean face when he springs into action.  Very scary!

Looks good.  All we need is for JCVD to start doing for actual martial arts in his films.  Then again, in Behind Closed Doors I remember his doctor telling him he had worn out his hip joints.

 

post #81433 of 107738

I think the doctor said he shouldn't do his sweeping roundhouse kick too much when training 3 or 4 hours per day for the fight, which now appears to be cancelled.   He can still do it though - practically every 10 minutes in the program - especially if it's only a few times for a fight scene.

 

But you're right, VD should do more martial arts in his movies.  I haven't seen ASSASSINATION GAMES though.  Does he do many kicks in that one?

post #81434 of 107738

Some more info from Sly's Q & A about VD in EX2:

 

 

I met Claude back when he was 21 years old, he was at my house...and doing splits. And I was thinking, can I drive you to the bus stop or something? ;D

Now it's funny that 25 years later we're in this movie.

JCVD was like Sly "beee careefulll now, of my kickkk, it will take off your head. it just goes up like that, whoosh."

He essentially said how Claude insisted on getting beat up for their fight scene. It was hilarious when Sly put the French accent on and said "Sly, c'mon...vee are men. let's do this" Sly said OK sure...do you want to go first? Claude was like yes. Sly then said to the audience **** **** **** ! And they took so much pain and he just said it's going to be epic and memorable.

Thanks for clarifying. 

 

No kicks whatsoever in Asassination Games.  In fact not much hand to hand at all from him.  If he's saving himself for a better film, I can't complain.

He fights Adkins and there's no kicking??  What the hell were they thinking?   At  least THE SHEPERD had a half-decent VD - ADKINS showdown.  Too short though.

Oh yes. At least it's not Screen Gems who is making it; otherwise, though, I don't have high hopes for it.

If you ever wanted to see HULK HOGAN sing Lady Gaga and wear his goofiest outfit since Mr. Nanny, then this is perfect for you. Otherwise, though, man do I feel SO bad for The Hulkster the past 5 years or so. I don't even want to go through all of his problems, but just this week there's this video and the news that someone filmed a SEX TAPE of him from a few years ago when he was allegedly on a few month bender after he split up from his wife and lost his mind. Sigh...

Granted I haven't seen it in at least 15 years, but I recall enjoying Saturn 3 and parts of it being somewhat fucked up.  My memory is hazy though, so don't take that as gospel.  I've often looked forward to revisiting it at some point in the near future.  I need to track down a copy of it somehow.

Terrible.

 

Gents, I don't know which of you are gamers like me but I finally bought Kane & Lynch: Dog Days and it was four hours of superb action. Really great handheld style to go along with the violence and naked sprinting through the rain as angry Chinamen shoot at you! I recommend this game enthusiastically.

 

The first game was also a great emulation of action films up until you enter the jungle. Fuck that section.

post #81445 of 107738

Either Seagal slimmed down a bit, or they did some enhancing, because he doesn't look as portly as he has in some of the recent interview footage we've seen. Probably enhancing. His face continues to get more orange though. He needs to tone down the make up.

 

Spring Break officially started for me about 2 hours ago. It's cold right now and rainy. Still, I made a trek out to the comic book store to get my comics, stopped off at KFC, and listened to the first disc of the Apocalypse Now Soundtrack while I did all this. Got the soundtrack in yesterday, and I already own both cassette tapes after finding them around 1998/99 at a Half Price Books. Just wanted to own the cd set.

 

Now I'm revisiting one of the classic action films that never gets old. Predator. Felt like it would be a good way to start Spring Break, and I also just ordered the soundtrack from Buy Soundtrax.com.

Hey Guys, After Seeing John Carter, understand...Dejah View, must have been named after the first time John...VIEWed Dejah Thoris!  John Carter...PULPS, all other Pulp Science Fiction Films and Series!  MARSch 9TH is...Carter Country!  It is an...Awe-Inspiring Spectacle, with Spectacular Adventures, on...Barsoom!  Lynn Collins is a...Revelation, as Dejah Thoris!  She doesn't...Reveal as much of her as a...R Rated John Carter film would, but the...View of Dejah in the Zondagian Wedding Dress is...Jaw Dropping!  Whilist there will not likely be a sequel, this is a Pulp Science Fiction Spectacular with no Equal!

Yeah, I've been ripping on the PG-13 rating as well, but there's no doubt in my mind that I wouldn't see it. I would be stupid not to see it.

duke fleed, great to hear that John Carter (Of Mars) is not that bad. I've been pretty vocal about it looking uninteresting, but in the past week, I've slowly been coming around on it, and I may see it some time in the near future, or when it hits the dollar movies.

SATURN 3 wasn't as cool as you'd think it would be considering for most of its running time it's focused on a rampaging out-of-control robot. Favorite scene: reveal that the eeeevil robot has killed Harvey Keitel and is wearing his head!

 

Can you believe that just 7 years after making a splash with MEAN STREETS Keitel would suffer the indignity of being dubbed by another actor like some first time novice? (Andie McDowall being dubbed by Glenn Close in GREYSTROKE is the only other time this happening comes to mind) It was pretty hilarious seeing him deliver his lines with a British accent. Man, he really had a down period after being fired from APOCALYPSE NOW.

 

Oh, and even though it was a VHS, no trailers before or after the movie, HT.

Rene (Mr.Eko), I think John Carter is...Taylor Made for a not so...KITSCHY Actor!  John Carter is more than...not bad, it will be one of my...likely...Top 2 Films of 2012!  Also, in no way shape or form is John Carter...Too Long.  If anything, you could add...30-45 minutes, and the film would not drag...on!
