August 25th, 2009

I’m still excited about Inglourious Basterds. If you haven’t seen it yet, go see it or book a ticket.  It’s true to say that Quentin Tarantino is a great film maker.  Yes he’s made a few decisions I’m sure he isn’t entirely proud of, but luckily for him when he gets it right, the less [..]

First off, apologies for bothering you with another On the QT installment in 24 hours, but it was quite a surprise for me to get the invite to the first Irish screening of the long awaited next film by Quentin tonight (last night by the time I hit publish). With huge thanks to, Rick [..]

“We had rehearsed this stunt where Stuntman Mike was half in and half out of his car at what was as close to 100mph that we could safely get.  It looked awesome.  When we went for the actual take, it was going even better than the rehearsals, so I called the camera car on the [..]

And we go straight into the second part of the over the top revenge saga that is the Kill Bill series.  With the two films written and shot back to back they should have been one great film divided into two instead of a sequel/prequel made just to cash in.  And they were great. With [..]

“Revenge is a dish best served cold” – Old Klingon proverb. OOO000OOO We’re nearly at the end of this series, but we’ve still got a way to go until the release of Quentin Tarantino’s war epic “Inglorious Basterds” this coming August 21st. Reviews from the set are telling us that no effort is being spared [..]

Quentin Tarantino knows movies.  Being a self confessed movie geek though, that’s not surprising.  From the gangster/heist movies that gave us “Reservoir Dogs” and “True Romance” and of course the mega “Pulp Fiction”, to the king fu movies that brought us the “Kill Bill” saga. “Jackie Brown” comes from the influence that the blaxploitation era [..]

If you’ve been following the progress so far, you’ll know that the next installment in the remembering of Quentin Tarantino’s movies is the utterly brilliant : Released in 1994 in a whirlwind of controversy that still hadn’t quite died down from “Reservoir Dogs”, Quentin’s second film as writer / director proved that not everyone suffers [..]

Hey I’m a poet and I didn’t know that I was one. Right, so for those of you following my series of Quentin Tarantino reviews coming up to the release of his long awaited war epic “Inglorious Basterds“, I give you the third part from where I left off here. This time I’m focusing on [..]

June 26th, 2009

So, on the lead up to the release of a film that I just can’t wait for “Inglorious Basterds”, by Quentin Tarantino I have been doing reviews of his films to date. I started by finding out about a film that I had never known about, but then again nobody was probably meant to.  Thanks [..]

June 2nd, 2009

The first, first part was here. On the lead up to the release of the soon to be latest Quentin Tarantino instalment, Inglorious Basterds, I’m doing a review of all of his movies to date. Upon my incredibly extensive research, I came across rumours of a never much seen first attempt of a movie by [..]

Right, so carrying on from HERE I was hoping to start with a good review of Quentin Tarantino’s first ever film – “My Best Friend’s Birthday”.  Written by Quentin in 1987 it was the first of his scripts to be made into a film.  Not Resevoir Dogs, like most would believe and if I’m honest, [..]

If I named a few films would they ring any bells with you? My Best Friends Birthday Curdled God said, “Ha!” From Dusk til Dawn 3 (They must have made a sequel to get to the third part) Killing Zoe Siu nin Wong fei Hung ji: Tit ma lau (?) I’d never heard of them [..]

If you enjoyed the first two you won’t be disappointed with this but it stands alone well for those who have never visited the magical world of Narnia before. The Pevensie children were heroes in my young imagination but I find the characters a little irritating watching them as an adult on the screen. I enjoyed the movie as much as the first two instalments, neither of which I thought came anywhere near outdoing the magic of the books.

Guess the movie: – Released in 1993 Tori Amos was considered for the female lead Tom Hanks, Chevy Chase, John Travolta and Steve Martin were all considered for the lead male role. No cheating etc, or I’ll set up a petition to get more Jennifer Lopez films made.

Oscar Predictions: Best Actor* I write this post today in the knowledge that the Academy has yet again made a dumbfounding decision to leave Senna out of the long list for nominations for Best Documentary ahead of next year’s ceremony.

Best Film Prediction* Each and every year for as long as I can remember, I have sat up to ungodly hours of the morning watching the Oscar ceremony. I can’t explain what this means to a film reviewer, it’s basically like our Christmas.

Maybe it was the release of The Social Network reminding us of Aaron Sorkin’s genius, maybe it was the fact that Martin ‘President Bartlet’ Sheen has been in town for JDIFF, maybe it’s just that it’s been far too long, but we’ve been re-watching our West Wing boxset here at Culch towers and my, my.
