Quentin Tarantino’s Oscar-winning Django Unchained marked the tenth anniversary of its 2012 theatrical release earlier this week. Django (Jamie Foxx) is a slave who happens to land an unlikely encounter with German-born bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz). He’s the key to helping Schultz find the Brittle brothers and for his help, the bounty hunter promises to free him. When Django fulfills his obligations, he chooses not to go his own separate way but…"Django Unchained Marks Its 10th Anniversary"

Jackie Brown, which gave new life to Pam Grier and Robert Forster’s careers, marks the 25th anniversary of its theatrical release in 1997. In Quentin Tarantino’s adaptation of Elmore Leonard’s Rum Punch, the filmmaker pays homage to the 1970s blaxploitation films. The gist of the film is that Jackie Brown (Pam Grier) is a flight attendant who is smuggling money for Ordell Robbie (Samuel L. Jackson) and authorities catch her in action. But before that…"Jackie Brown Marks 25th Anniversary"
Pulp Fiction, the 1994 Oscar-winning classic written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, makes its arrival on 4K Ultra HD. The film’s 4K release also comes a few weeks after Lionsgate upgraded Reservoir Dogs to 4K UHD for its 30th anniversary. There’s no milestone anniversary here but the film is now available on 4K UHD, including a Limited Edition Collector’s SteelBook. All of the bonus features are also on the previous home entertainment releases. When one…"Pulp Fiction: Quentin Tarantino Classic Arrives On 4K Ultra HD"
Marvel veteran Samuel L. Jackson has responded to the recent comments made by filmmaker Quentin Tarantino about Marvel films. What makes Samuel L. Jackson the right person to respond to Tarantino is his longtime association with both Marvel and the filmmaker. The honorary Oscar winner first appeared as Nick Fury during a post-credits scene in 2008’s Iron Man and has reprised the role in numerous films ever since. Jackson has appeared in numerous films directed…"Samuel L. Jackson Responds to Quentin Tarantino Over Marvel Comments"
Quentin Tarantino’s debut feature, Reservoir Dogs, gets the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray treatment over a month after its 30th anniversary. A few filmmakers changed the game for independent filmmaking when their films played Sundance: Quentin Tarantino, Kevin Smith, and Steven Soderbergh. Soderbegh started first with Sex, Lies, and Videotape in 1989. Tarantino was next with Reservoir Dogs in 1992. Finally, you had Kevin Smith premiere Clerks in 1992. While this film didn’t do much at…"Reservoir Dogs Gets 4K Ultra HD Upgrade"
Inglourious Basterds, Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist war film with one of the best cinematic endings, makes its arrival today on 4K Ultra HD. The following is from my review as written in 2019 for the 10th anniversary. However, there are some revisions to account for the last two years. Unfortunately, there is no change in the Jew-hatred. A shame. All people need to do is just not hate Jews. Is this too much to ask? But…"Inglourious Basterds Arrives on 4K Ultra HD"
Quentin Tarantino’s revisionist war film, Inglourious Basterds, has one of the best cinematic endings of all time while the film holds up ten years later. What I am sorry to report is that this is a film that could also take place in 2019. It’s not so much because of conditions in Europe but how things presently are in the United States. Much of today’s anti-Semitism is being enabled by the man presently holding office…"Inglourious Basterds: Revisionist Film Marks 10 Years"
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood takes us back to 1969 in a way that only Quentin Tarantino can do so, while completely wasting Margot Robbie. After viewing the film, I can safely say that Inglorious Basterds remains my favorite Quentin Tarantino film. While the third act of Hollywood is entertaining, I really wish I could say more about the rest of the film. For the large majority, we’re viewing the film through actor Rick…"Once Upon a Time in Hollywood: I Have Words"
The Great Buster: A Celebration is a well-deserved cinematic tribute to Buster Keaton–one of the greatest silent comedy stars to have ever lived. Discussing the great silent comedy stars must include Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin, and Harold Lloyd. Interestingly, Keaton starred in College as a response to Lloyd’s The Freshman. Where Lloyd starred as a freshman who played football, Keaton would play every other sport. As for Chaplin, he directed Keaton in 1952’s Limelight. This…"The Great Buster celebrates Buster Keaton"
