A brief tribute to the brilliance of Shawn Ryan's The Shield now that it's available on Blu-ray.
On three TIFF premieres, including films starring Emma Thompson, Richard Gere, and Helena Bonham-Carter.
With "The Hateful Eight," Quentin Tarantino betrays the female fans he's until-now supported.
Quentin Tarantino has found his actor in Christoph Waltz -- someone who can speak Tarantinian fluently and still make it his own. When Waltz uses a self-consciously ostentatious word like "ascertain" (as in, "I was simply trying to ascertain..." -- the kind of verbiage QT is as likely to put in the mouth of a lowlife crook as a German dentist, or a Francophile plantation slavemaster, for that matter), it sounds right. As someone to whom Tarantino's dialog often sounds cliche-ridden and cutesy, it's a pleasure to hear Waltz saying the words in character rather than simply as a mouthpiece for the writer-director.
Oh, stop. This isn't sounding the way I want it to.
