NECA's 6-figure set gets iced out by eBay & Weinstein Company

We’ve been obsessed with Quentin Tarantino’s spaghetti western/slave vengeance/southern flick Django Unchained since it was first announced. We clearly had some strong opinions on it when we saw it (read our review), so it’s not surprising the film still dominates our thoughts.

The Pursuit of Vengeance lifted to an immaculate art form...

Is there anybody — and I mean anybody — on this God’s green Earth that better manifests a Pursuit of Vengeance flick better than the great Quentin Tarantino? Unleashing a slave seeking revenge, and freedom, on a bunch of plantation owners seems like such a Tarantino no-brainer that in hindsight it’s shocking he hasn’t done […]

Two of America's best filmmakers ever get art makeovers

Back in March we talked about that Quentin Tarantino vs Coen Brothers Art Show and now they’ve made a video of the show. Moreover, there’s also links now to buy both original works and also a full collection of high quality prints from the show via Spoke Art. Honestly some very clever artwork in there […]

Deconstructing Hollywood's insatiable need to make what has already been made

You can’t help but notice: of the top 10 highest grossing movies in each of the last 10 years, an alarming 74 out 100 are adaptations of existing material: comic books, books, video games, sequels, reboots, et al. Everything Is a Remix is a 4-part series exploring the remix techniques involved in producing such films. […]
