Today’s must-see video comes to us from Jaume R. Lloret, who has lovingly placed every single violent death from Quentin Tarantino‘s films into one convenient supercut. It’s oddly therapeutic, in a way. Although I’d say that the Gimp‘s death was sort of undetermined. Some say he’s still out there, looking for love.

For a full body count, consult this Quentin Tarantino movie deaths infographic.

Jennifer Aniston And Dennis Quaid Are Going To Star In A ‘Jackie Brown’ Prequel Whether You Think It’s A Good Idea Or Not http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jennifer-aniston-and-dennis-quaid-are-going-to-star-in-a-jackie-brown-prequel-whether-you-think-its-a-good-idea-or-not/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jennifer-aniston-and-dennis-quaid-are-going-to-star-in-a-jackie-brown-prequel-whether-you-think-its-a-good-idea-or-not/#comments Fri, 17 Feb 2012 14:00:30 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=245534 Rob Schneider had a prior commitment.

That headline may have caused some heart palpitations, so let me break it down for you. Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown was based on the Elmore Leonard novel 1992 Rum Punch. Rum Punch utilized many of the same characters as Elmore Leonard’s 1978 novel The Switch, which features younger versions of both the Samuel L. Jackson and Robert DeNiro characters. Those younger characters will be played by Mos Def and John Hawkes, but I won’t tell you who’s playing what role because I get off on being witholding.

Hang on. I’m not done clarifying.

Jennifer Aniston and Dennis Quaid are likely going to star in the film based on The Switch, which is now titled simply Switch, because Jennifer Aniston was already in a movie called The Switch.

Ok. Now a few words on the plot. Switch will focus on a husband (Quaid) who refuses to pay the ransom for his wife (Aniston) who he doesn’t want back. Aniston teams up with the kidnappers for revenge.

I regret there isn’t more room for snark in this article, but I just had to cram this thing so full of facts and clarifications. Soon, though. Soon.

Your parents/J. Edgar Hoover used to tell you that crime doesn’t pay. What they left out was this: Crime doesn’t pay if you’re an idiot.

In honor of that valuable lesson, (and with 30 Minutes or Less coming out on DVD/Blu-ray) I’m here to show you seven of the most inept duos in cinema history. Enjoy.

Check out the assortment of Sony “Action Unleashed” DVDs!

Dwayne and Travis, 30 Minutes or Less

These two screwups (to put it mildly), played by Danny McBride and a startlingly brilliant Nick Swardson, have what seems like a good plan: Strap a time bomb to a pizza delivery guy and force him to rob a bank and hand the cash over to them. Wait, on second thought, that seems like a terrible idea. Anyway, their basic idiocy and lack of experience in criminal matters doesn’t help things. It takes more than dynamite to achieve one’s humble dream of opening a tanning salon/brothel.

Jasper and Horace, One Hundred and One Dalmatians

Like a lot of dumb criminals, Jasper and Horace aren’t bad dudes, really. But they’re working for one of the most evil villains of all time: Cruella DeVil. They basically follow the Laurel and Hardy template of “tall dumb guy, short, slightly-less dumb guy.” Funny thing: Horace (the short one) often correctly guesses what the Dalmatians are up to, maybe because he shares some kind of animal savant quality with them. Nobody ever listens to Horace though, and thank God for that – unless you’re a Dalmatian fur enthusiast.

Review: ‘Jackie Brown’ On Blu-Ray http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-jackie-brown-on-blu-ray/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-jackie-brown-on-blu-ray/#comments Tue, 18 Oct 2011 13:30:11 +0000 Archibald Bayou III http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=232783 Although it's the black sheep of the Tarantino film family, hopefully it will get its due with this excellent Blu-ray release.

Quentin Tarantino‘s Jackie Brown doesn’t get the praise or attention of some of Tarantino‘s other films, but it deserves its place among the great movies of the last 15 years. While it may not be as quotable as Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs, it features some of Tarantino’s deepest characters, and maybe his most compelling overall story.

Jackie Brown was released on Blu-ray on October 4th, with an SRP of $19.99. Although it’s the black sheep of the Tarantino film family, hopefully it will get its due with this excellent Blu-ray release.

9 Classic Movie Posters Reinvented http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-classic-movie-posters-reinvented/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/9-classic-movie-posters-reinvented/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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 considering the Roadshow's website describes The Godfather II, the story of a ruthless crime syndicate, as a "defining immigrant worker story," I probably shouldn't get too hung up on the logic behind the text. 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) See the posters after the jump...

‘Jackie Brown’ Prequel in the Works Without Tarantino http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackie-brown-prequel-in-the-works-without-tarantino/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/jackie-brown-prequel-in-the-works-without-tarantino/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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)
