Quentin Tarantino Scraps 'Hateful Eight’ After Script Leak, Names Possible Culprits

January 22nd, 2014 11:57am EST
Quentin Tarantino
We all know how obsessive and private one can get when writing a screenplay. For someone to leak Quentin Tarantino's script for his new western film titled, ‘The Hateful Eight’ is absolutely ridiculous.

Here’s what Tarantino had to say about this:

“I finished a script, a first draft, and I didn’t mean to shoot it until next winter, a year from now,” said the Oscar-winning film-maker to Deadline.com. “I gave it to six people, and apparently it’s gotten out today.

“I gave it to one of the producers on Django Unchained, Reggie Hudlin, and he let an agent come to his house and read it. That’...

SAG Award Nominees Named: '12 Years A Slave' Tops Nods (Full List)

December 11th, 2013 11:14am EST
12 Years a Slave
Some people were surprised by The Butler’s presence here, but I don’t see any surprises from them. Movies like Gravity and Her (which are frontrunners for a Best Picture nomination) aren’t large cast films, and wouldn’t get the Ensemble nomination over The Butler. The big surprise is Dallas Buyers Club, which is a relatively small cast, and did manage an Ensemble nomination. That could go a long way in getting DBC to a Best Picture nomination. Also, Daniel Bruhl is back in the race with a Supporting Actor nomination for Rush.

Kudos to the SAG members for nominating James Gandolfini for E...

'Nebraska' Review: Bruce Dern Gives Performance Of His Life In This Exquisite Alexander Payne Film

November 15th, 2013 9:57am EST
Nebraska
When it comes to movies everyone knows it's all about the visuals. Yes, dialogue is important, but it's the pictures that have the most impact. This is certainly the case when it comes to the black and white film 'Nebraska,' which is brilliantly directed by Alexander Payne.

Simply put, this film is absolutely exquisite - and equally exquisite is Bruce Dern's performance. This is the best performance of his career and come Oscar time his name will certainly be on the Best Actor list.

Bruce plays Woody a man nearing the end of his life, who may or may not have dementia. 
This is a man who d...

Big Love
Last night, HBO ended its series "Big Love" with a bang to say the least. For those of you that followed the show and haven't seen the series finale yet, (spoiler alert) the star and main character, Bill Henrickson, (played by Bill Paxton) was shot and killed by his neighbor. The word on the street is that it was a very fitting and a decent ending to the series. HBO has provided us with a behind the scenes reaction to the series conclusion.

Check out the video above and hear how the creators and writers came to the series conclusions, as well as Bill Paxton's initial reaction and thoughts...

Chloe Sevigny Is An Animal

Chloe Sevigny
Chloe Sevigny went to HBO's Post Award Reception for the Emmy Awards wearing a short, leopard print dress. Sometimes a star wears the dress, but in this case the dress is wearing the star. And we don't like that Chloe matched her lipstick to her clutch.

Chloe made headlines earlier this year for blasting the latest season of her show "Big Love." She was reported as saying, "It was awful this season, as far as I'm concerned. I'm not allowed to say that!...I feel like it kind of got away from itself..."

The actress moved quickly to play down her remarks, blaming the media for blowing the si...

The Movie Rut: "The 'Burbs" (1989)

“I hate cul-de-sacs. There's only one way out, and the people are kind of weird.” – Vic the Garbage Man, The ‘Burbs

Starting his career in the mixed up world of Roger Corman’s New World Pictures, director Joe Dante quickly developed a knack for supplanting wacky 50’s b-movie antics into the lives of small town yokels. He set green monsters loose on Middle America in Gremlins, sicked homicidal toys on unsuspecting tweens in Small Soldiers, and, as recently as 2009, planted a portal to another dimension in a suburban attic in The Hole. Then there’s Matinee, the movie where Dante bypasses sub...

TV Stars Who Deserve Emmy Nominations On July 17, Part 1

July 8th, 2008 11:55am EDT
Boston Legal
Last week, I helped the Emmy panelists decide upon which series to cast their vote for, and now it's the actors' turn.

The Emmy blue ribbon panel received a group of lists from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences last week. These were top ten lists from which they were to select the five nominees for the big Emmy show. They will view select episodes from each nominee and base their decision on what they see.

It's nigh on impossible to glean an accurate impression from a small sample, especially when it comes to acting. Many characters are given complex arcs from which the...
