12 Abandoned Movies by Famous Screenwriters

Hollywood, this is why you can’t have nice things. A couple of weeks back, word broke that Quentin Tarantino had finished a new screenplay called The Hateful Eight, described as a Western with plum roles for recent Best Actor nominee (and Django Unchained bit player) Bruce Dern and Tarantino fave Christoph Waltz, and there was much rejoicing. That celebration ended earlier this week, when Tarantino discovered that the script had been leaked and pulled the plug on the entire project. But his unproduced script is in good company; here are a few other famous abandoned screenplays we’d love to have… Read More

Flavorwire’s Guide to Indie Flicks to See in January

Every January, it’s the same bait-and-switch; just when we’ve been lulled by the onslaught of awards-season prestige pictures into enjoying a trip to the movies again, the calendar shifts and there we are in January, traditionally the worst month of the year for new movies. It’s the dumping ground for studio releases that aren’t good or commercial enough for the holiday season, and not worth holding till spring. And thus, the studios give us yet another excuse to reject their wares and head to the art house, where the choices are a little bit more interesting. … Read More

Awesome Pop Culture-Inspired Art From Gallery 1988’s New ‘Crazy 4 Cult’ Book

We’ve professed our love for Gallery 1988, the pop culture-obsessed art gallery with locations in Melrose and Venice, so many times that we’ve all but become a fan site. But their work isn’t just for Los Angelenos; a couple of years back, they put out a coffee table book of their best stuff called Crazy 4 Cult, and like all big hits, it has prompted a sequel. Crazy 4 Cult: Cult Movie Art 2 is out now from Titan books, and Gallery 1988 has been kind enough to pass on some of the best movie and TV-inspired art from the book; click through to check it out. … Read More

10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Pulp Fiction’

Over the weekend, the wonderful folks at the Tallgrass Film Festival (the annual Wichita, Kansas fest that we’ve previously described as one of the best under-the-radar film fests in the country) were kind enough to fly in your film editor for their excellent weekend of movies, interactivity, and Midwestern hospitality. I was there for a 35mm screening of Pulp Fiction, tied to the release of my book Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece. They also brought in Ronnie Yeskel, Pulp’s casting director, and Karyn Rachtman, the film’s music supervisor, for a post-movie Q&A which I had the pleasure of moderating. In the course of that discussion, I learned a few new things about the movie (which turned 19 last week), and confirmed a few of the more interesting rumors about its production. … Read More

12 Trailers That Give Away the Whole Movie

The new remake of Carrie came out Friday, and as we discussed last week, the genuine mystery of its need to exist is multiplied by its spoiler-iffic trailer — which basically reveals the entire film, beat by beat, up to and including its blood-soaked finale. That said, it’s far from the first movie to be marketed with a trailer that gives away the entire game; here are a few of the most notorious examples (and consider yourself warned, spoiler-wise). … Read More
