The gangster movie is a long and storied tradition stretching back to the earliest days of the cinema. You could even make the argument that back in the 1920's and…
Rob Schneider had a prior commitment.
Bounty hunting is one of the noblest of professions, so it makes sense that there has been a lot of movies on the subject. But if you’re a newcomer to…
Crime doesn’t pay… especially if you’re an idiot.
Although it’s the black sheep of the Tarantino film family, hopefully it will get its due with this excellent Blu-ray release.
The Alamo Drafthouse Rolling Roadshow (sponsored by Levi's) kicks off next week with public viewings of nine classic films around the country. In an interesting twist, the movies will be shown at the locations where they were filmed. The theme of the event is "‘We Are All Workers."
Rooted by one of the nation’s founding principles, We Are All Workers hits the road with nine seminal screenings proving that everybody’s work is equally important.
I'm an internet writer. My mere existence proves that we are not all "workers," and our work is not all "equally important."

But what the event lacks in well written copy, it more than makes up for with these awesome redesigned film posters by artist Olly Moss. Enjoy. (First Showing)

The prequel should be an adaptation of this image.A prequel of Jackie Brown has been written based off the novel The Switch by Elmore Leonard, which is a prequel to his novel Rum Punch, the book Quentin Tarantino read and then disregarded when making Jackie Brown. Tarantino has given his blessing on The Switch, but is not involved, so that means the source material probably won't get completely bitch-slapped. Dan Schechter wrote the screenplay and the search for a director and cast is about to begin. Jackie Brown characters Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) and Louis Gara (Robert De Niro) originated from The Switch, but Tarantino decided to focus on sassy Jackie and Motown music when he made his film. The prequel will follow young Ordell and Louis who, after hitting it off in prison, decide to kidnap the wife of a wealthy land developer and hold her for ransom. The twist? He doesn't want his wife back! This mashup of Overboard and Ernest Goes to Camp through the adapted eyes of Elmore Leonard is sure to be a… Nope, that word doesn't exist. (JoBlo)
