The Last Duel Crew Share Their Ridley Scott Stories: 'He Doesn't Stop Until He Gets It' [Exclusive]

There are many reasons to look forward to "The Last Duel," ranging from the fact that it's a Ridley Scott movie and nothing more needs to be said (although I'm going to say more anyway, sorry!), to the current dearth of historical epics that used to be considered proven moneymakers and have made this film into a rarity, to the must-see appearances of both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck in medieval hair and makeup ... not to mention their significant contributions on the other side of the camera, as ...

Quentin Tarantino Gives a Tour of Video Archives, the Store Where He Worked Before Becoming a Filmmaker

When Quentin Tarantino hit it big in the 1990s with Reservoir Dogs, and then much bigger with Pulp Fiction, he became known as the auteur who’d received his film education by working as a video-store clerk. But like much Hollywood hype, that story wasn’t quite true. “No, I was already a movie expert,” says the man himself in a clip from the 1994 BBC documentary Quentin Tarantino: Hollywood’s Boy Wonder. “That’s how I got hired at Video Archives.” Located in the South Bay — a comparativel...

The 14 Best Val Kilmer Movies Ranked

In July 2021, A24 and Amazon Prime released "Val," a documentary about the life and career of actor Val Kilmer. Part behind-the-scenes look at Val Kilmer movies, part autobiography, the film delves into the controversies and tragedies that define Kilmer as an actor.

Quentin Tarantino Reviews Movies: From Dunkirk and King of New York, to Soul Brothers of Kung Fu & More

Some of the most influential directors of the French New Wave, like Jean-Luc Godard, François Truffaut, and Éric Rohmer, first stepped into the world of film as critics. They found their voices by publishing in the Paris cinephile institution of Cahiers du cinéma; a few decades later, Quentin Tarantino found his own by working at the Manhattan Beach cinephile institution of Video Archives.

14 Movie Roles Denzel Washington Should Have Turned Down

It goes without saying that Denzel Washington is a living legend -- a man so inherent to our perception of cinematic talent that his mere presence is considered an improvement to any film. Washington-starring movies become, in their own inevitable way, Washington-esque movies. "Malcolm X," "Fences," "Crimson Tide," and "Training Day" -- with just a couple of lines here and a forehead rub there, each one becomes Washington material in the most Denzel-ion sort of way.With Washington at the ripe ag...

Other Denzel Washington Movies You Should Watch After The Little Things

"The Little Things" is an entertaining throwback to neo-noir investigative thrillers that debuted in January, 2021. The film's pulpy storyline and ambiguous ending elevated it above other "Se7en" wannabes, but really, it was the film's incredible cast that garnered attention. Recent Academy Award winners Rami Malek and Jared Leto brought to depth to their respective roles, but both were overshadowed by their co-star Denzel Washington. One of the most acclaimed actors of all-time, Washington has ...

Sonny Chiba obituary

Martial arts actor with an economical style who starred in The Street Fighter and later in Kill Bill and Immortal CombatIn the early 1990s Quentin Tarantino helped extend Sonny Chiba’s appeal beyond the martial arts enthusiasts who had admired the actor’s work for decades. Chiba, who has died aged 82 from Covid-19, had already made more than 120 movies by that point. But it was in Tarantino’s screenplay for True Romance (1993), directed by Tony Scott, that many western viewers first heard his na...

The 15 Best Spy Movies Of All Time

In a 1956 letter to noir legend Raymond Chandler, Ian Fleming referred to his James Bond novels as "pillow fantasies of the bang-bang, kiss-kiss variety."

Fleming's creation for Queen and Country is now the second-longest running franchise in film history. "Mission: Impossible" has been playing in theaters longer than it ...

6 Medieval Tales That Deserve the Green Knight Treatment

Quentin Tarantino Reveals ‘Maniac’ Filmmaker William Lustig Almost Directed ‘True Romance’

After the 1992 release of Reservoir Dogs, Quentin Tarantino was fast on his way to becoming a big deal. And while his next directorial effort, Pulp Fiction, wouldn’t arrive until 1994, 1993 was also a big year for Tarantino – because that was the year of True Romance. It was technically Tarantino’s first screenplay, written before Reservoir Dogs, and while he considered directing it himself, he eventually sold the script. The script was then directed by the late, great Tony Scott, and the resul...

‘Profile’ Director Timur Bekmambetov Believes Screenlife is the Future of Cinema [Interview]
