Meet Dragon Baby, the world’s newest superhero. Created by Patrick Boivin, this cute little video is a tribute to Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill.
Here at andPOP, we don’t condone violence among small children. But this video is so cute that we think this kid needs his own comic book series!
This video compilation is a perfect testament to Quentin Tarantino’s brilliant movie characters and might cause a single tear to roll down a nostalgic movie lover’s cheek.
The video combines Tarantino’s best films, including Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Inglourious Basterds and Kill Bill. All the shots were strategically chosen because they look up at the characters, almost placing them on a pedestal.
Hobo With A Shotgun – a pretty self explanatory title. Dutch actor Rutger Hauer is a hobo who tries to clean up a crime infested town that’s full of drugs, guns, pimps and prostitutes. The film is directed by Jason Eisener who won a fake-trailer competition for Quentin Tarantino, which lead to the development of the movie. If you like blood, guts, and the idea of a hobo delivering justice, you may want to check this out!
Fresh from his Best Director Oscar loss for Inglorious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino is now being sued by a man who says that the quirky film director stole his concept for “Kill Bill,” according to a TMZ report.
In a lawsuit that was filed Tuesday (March 9), Dannez Hunter says that in 1999 he submitted a treatment to Miramax about a made-up character named Ren. He claims that eventually Miramax, Harvey Weinstein and Tarantino ripped-off his ideas, including the “concept/character name Ren.” Hunter says that Tarantino copied everything from Ren witnessing her mother’s gruesome murder to the knife through the abdomen, etc.
According to slashfilm.com, Disney plans to close the doors of the studio which is known for distributing films that launched the careers of Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, Steven Soderbergh and more.
Kevin Smith made the following comment on the closure:
Bill may be dead, but that doesn’t mean the killing is over.
“Kill Bill” director Quentin Tarantino recently told an Italian talk show that he wants to do a third installment in the film franchise, it just won’t be for a few years yet, according to MTV News.
While on the talk show Tarantino claimed that, “The Bride will fight again!” However, the eccentric film director also said he wanted 10 years to pass before making the third movie, which could see it being released no earlier than 2014.
Why the big gap between films? “Two reasons,” Tarantino said, “One: I think Uma [Thurman] and I needed a 10 year break cause the first one was so hard. And second: I really love the character. And I think she deserves a 10 year release of no fighting and being with her [daughter].”
It only seemed like a matter of time before World War Two was “Tarantino-ized.” After all, it’s the perfect setting for the “Pulp Fiction” director’s self-proclaimed poetry and mind-boggling gore.
Set in the first year of Germany’s occupation of France, “Inglourious Basterds” – a film that’s loosely based on the 1978 Italian war flick “The Inglorious Bastards” – kicks off with Nazi Colonel Hans Landa (played by German actor Christoph Waltz) who’s on the lookout for Jews (he’s literally referred to as the “Jew Hunter”). One of Landa’s searches in the outskirts of France leads him to a Jewish French girl, Shoshana Dreyfus (played by the beautiful Melanie Laurent) – whose family is killed by Landa and his crew.
Simultaneously (but in a different part of Europe) Lieutenant Aldo Raine (Brad Pitt) organizes a group of Jewish American soldiers to perform swift acts of retribution. And by retribution, he means Tarantino-style revenge (which translates to gore X 150).
The movie comes out tomorrow so check back for our review later tonight. In the meantime here’s the trailer for the film starring Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, and directed by Quentin Tarantino.
andPOP was at the Canadian premiere of the highly anticipated “Inglourious Basterds,” the latest Quentin Tarantino film. The director himself was present along with Eli Roth, who plays Sgt. Donny Donowitz in the war movie.
The event took place on Aug. 12 at the Scotiabank theatre in Toronto and featured two World War II vehicles mounted with models dressed in ‘40s attire. Hundreds of fans lined the street of the theatre to catch a glimpse of the director and a star of his film.
The world may get its first look at Quentin Tarantino’s WWII epic, “Inglourious Basterds,” next month.
Insiders told Variety that the director has accepted an offer to screen the Brad Pitt-starring drama in competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Cannes organizers will announce the festival lineup on April 23, with this year’s event set to run from May 13 to 24.
Director Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds,” a Second World War epic starring Brad Pitt, will hit North American cinemas on Aug. 21.
The quirkily misspelled movie follows a U.S. army lieutenant (Pitt) who leads a group of Jewish soldiers against the Nazis in occupied France.
The eclectic cast also includes Diane Kruger, Mike Myers, Samuel L. Jackson, B. J. Novak (TV’s “The Office”) and Chinese actress Maggie Cheung (“In the Mood for Love”).
The movie is Tarantino’s followup to 2007′s “Death Proof,” which was released as part of the “Grindhouse” anthology. Tarantino previously won a best original screenplay Oscar for 1994′s “Pulp Fiction.”
Pitt is currently appearing on big screens in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” a role which earned him Golden Globe and SAG nominations for best actor last month.
“Grindhouse” may have bombed at the box office, but it has had a lasting impression.
According to SlashFilm.com, the new Ben Stiller movie, “Tropic Thunder” will feature fake trailers. The idea is taken from the Tarantino-Rodriguez collaboration.
According to the site’s source, one of the trailers is for a faux film called “Satan’s Alley” and featured Robert Downey, Jr. (who stars in “Tropic Thunder”) and Tobey Maguire.
The fake “Grindhouse” trailers were so popular that one of them, “Machete,” is actually being made into a full-length film.
Kurt Russell, star of movies like “Backdraft” and “Escape from New York,” will appear as the lead character in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming horror movie, “Death Proof.”
Reuters reports that Russell will take on the role of Stunt Man Mike, for which actor Mickey Rourke was originally considered.
“I’ve always wanted to work with Kurt Russell,” said Tarantino at the Comic-Con International convention in San Diego on Saturday. “I think Stunt Man Mike is one of the best characters I’ve ever written.”
The film, which Tarantino plans to start making in a month, is one half of the “Grindhouse” double feature. Robert Rodriguez directed the other half, titled “Planet Terror.” That movie stars Rose McGowan.
The “Grindhouse” films, which will be shown one after the other with fake previews in between, are set to be released on April 6, 2007.
