50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too. But it was also the first year for Led Zeppelin, Jennifer Aniston, “Easy Rider” and Jay-Z, too. John Lennon and Yoko Ono spent part of it in bed in public. The Doors’ Jim Morrison spent part of it in jail. Moviegoers spent time watching “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” while at home they watched a brand-new show called “The Brady Bunch” about a brand-new kind of blended family, the youn...

2019 movie preview: Marvel looms large, but look who else is prepping releases

Before we get into the most obvious thing about the upcoming movies for 2019 – which is, Marvel is going to make a lot of money, again – can we first look forward to some great filmmakers who’ll be doing exactly what they want to do? Like Martin Scorsese, whose Netflix-backed “The Irishman” reunites our greatest living filmmaker with old cronies Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, and tosses Al Pacino into the bargain. It’s a mob epic that spans decades, with a lot of digital de-aging, ...

What Was Inside the Glowing Briefcase in Pulp Fiction?

Before I started making my own web pages, I spent a not-insignificant amount of my time on the Internet trawling the newsgroup for bits of knowledge about Quentin Tarantino, Pulp Fiction, and Reservoir Dogs. A big topic of discussion back then was speculation about the contents of the briefcase that Jules and Vincent were tasked to retrieve for Marsellus Wallace. Was it gold? Diamonds? Wallace’s soul? No one knew and Tarantino wasn’t telling. It was the most compelling MacGuffi...

His unique detailed style is a favorite among collectors, but the artist rarely produces new work to be sold to the masses, so whenever he chooses to release a piece, it’s kind of a big deal. However, his latest screenprint is a little more obscure than you might expect. Tyler Stout has created a print for True Romance, the 1993 romantic crime film directed by Tony Scott and written by Quentin Tarantino, using his signature style that ...
