One (more) last look at Tarantino's latest classic.
The supposed "final" trailer for writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Django Unchained was released earlier this month, but now that the movie has been nominated for five Golden Globes (including Best Motion Picture - Drama) and placed on several "best of 2012" year-end lists, the Weinstein Company has unveiled yet another trailer.
The plot has remained the same: Django (Jamie Foxx) is freed from slavery by German dentist King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) and becomes a bounty hunter in hopes of finding the man (Leonardo DiCaprio) who owns his wife (Kerry Washington). The latest trailer is enhanced by a new track from John Legend titled "Who Did That to You?" as it reveals new footage from the upcoming release.trailers that hit the bullseye

Which of this year's directors deserve the industry’s highest honor?
No one was too surprised when French director Michel Hazanavicius and his (mostly) silent film The Artist practically swept the Academy Awards last year or when British director Tom Hooper's The King's Speech did the same the year before. This year, however, there are no "sure thing" movies, with several being heralded as "brilliant," "masterful," and "the best movie of the year" by critics...until the next great movie comes along.
Several Oscar-winning directors — including two-time Best Director winner Steven Spielberg (Schindler's List, Saving Private Ryan) and Kathryn Bigelow, the first woman to win Best Director — are among this year's contenders, but they are up against stiff competition from upstart indie directors who helped to make this one of the best years for independent movies in recent memory and the genre movie directors who gave us superheroes, wizards and time travelers as compelling as the special effects that blew our minds. We won't know which directors the Academy will nominate until the middle of January, but we want to know who you, the moviegoers, think deserves the industry's highest honor.

"Say, what is your name, boy?"
At this point, it's quite possible that many are familiar with writer-director Quentin Tarantino's upcoming "Southern" Django Unchained. The upcoming movie's many TV spots, trailers and international trailers have offered the essence of the movie's plot: former slave Django (Jamie Foxx) joins German dentist King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in the bounty hunting business so he can search for his wife (Kerry Washington), who is now the property of lecherous slave owner Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio). The latest (and last) theatrical trailer for Django Unchained doesn't reveal any secrets, but getting fresh looks at DiCaprio's portrayal of Candie and more shots of Foxx shooting or whipping enemies into submission only offers further proof of why we're so excited to see the movie next month.all the latest trailers

"Revenge is never a straight line. It’s a forest. And like a forest it’s easy to lose your way… To get lost… To forget where you came in."
Enter a vast cinematic world that feels very much like our own, but hyperrealistic — groovy, violent, romantic, frightening and filled with characters so interesting that even the most dastardly of them can be relatable, even likeable. The only rule in this world is that revenge can and will be served, be it at the end of a legendary samurai's sword or in a hail of double-barreled justice. Oooh, that’s a bingo! >> Posted 11.20.12 by BrentJS
"When you dance with the devil, you wait for the song to stop."
Audiences have been flocking to theaters to watch gangster movies since before the introduction of "talkies," enticed by the opportunity to be a tourist in the violent world of career criminals without any of the risk associated with the reality of the lifestyle. The genre has been dominated by the stories of desperate Italian immigrants struggling to make it in America and Italian-American mafiosos who temper their ruthlessnes with strict codes of conduct, such as in The Godfather, considered the second greatest film in American cinema by the American Film Institute.
But, the "face" of gangster movies has become less defined in the past two decades as America has become more diverse and moviegoers more accepting of foreign imports. Modern masters like Martin Scorsese and Brian De Palma continue to elevate the genre by perfecting it, while innovative filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Guy Ritchie and Takashi Miike have helped to broaden the genre by refusing to be slaves to gangster movie tropes. Hide your stash, check your clip, and help us choose the latest, greatest gangster movies.

One has iron fists, the other has a rotating blade gun.
Musician-turned-actor-turned-writer-director-and-actor RZA has called his upcoming kung fu flick The Man With the Iron Fists the "most challenging" project of his career, and, after watching the movie's trailers, it's easy to see why. While RZA had help writing the script from Eli Roth (Hostel) and has Quentin Tarantino "presenting," the martial arts movie set in 19th Century China (and shot in the country as well) was, no doubt, a daunting directorial debut.
So far, RZA appears to be up for the challenge. Previous character trailers introduced Bronze Lion (Cung Le) and Madame Blossom (Lucy Liu), but the latest trailer introduces RZA's character The Blacksmith, who becomes a human weapon to protect his village. more kung fu trailers

Quentin Tarantino's underrated gem
What movie? Quentin Tarantino's follow up to Pulp Fiction, 1997's Jackie Brown, starring Pam Grier, Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Forster, Michael Keaton, Bridget Fonda, and Robert De Niro.
Why we recommend it: After the enormous success of Pulp Fiction, Tarantino threw everyone a curve ball and made Jackie Brown, based on Elmore Leonard's novel Rum Punch. QT said he wanted to prove he could adapt someone else's material. And with Jackie Brown, we think he did. The movie is a complex heist movie, involving a flight attendant (Grier), an illegal arms dealer (Jackson), and a bonds bailsman (Forster), and while the story is interesting and intriguing, it's the characters that make this movie stand out. Even after the movie is over, you wish you could return and just listen to these characters just carry on a conversation. Tarantino's dialogue is at its best and he proves no one can write a conversation like him. The movie revived the careers of Grier and Forster (more Forster). Though Jackie Brown didn't get as much attention as Pulp Fiction, it's just as entertaining and proved QT wasn't a one-hit wonder.
Source of Inspiration: When Tarantino was 15, he was arrested for shoplifting Leonard's novel The Switch, the first book that featured the Louis and Ordell characters.
Where to watch it: Jackie Brown is streaming on Netflix and is available on DVD and Blu-ray. watch the trailer for Jackie Brown >> Posted 09.19.12 by Chris
