New poster out for a film called Big Bad Wolves. Interesting because it has a quote from Tarantino calling it the “best film of the year”.
The trailer shows some clear homage to Tarantino as we get his signature trunk shot, and the whole thing feels like Reservoir Dogs remade by Eli Roth..
James Gray (The Yards andLittle Odessa with Tim Roth) talks about how hard it is to get small movies made, and his ‘war’ with Tarantino.
His earnest, emotional style earned him a reputation as the anti-Tarantino early on. “It made it seem like I was in a war with Quentin, which is ridiculous,” he said, rejecting the media’s comparisons. “I have huge admiration for what he can do. When you see movies that he does, the audience is so enraptured, I can’t do that. He has talents I can never even approach.”
The Tarantino Archives has Tarantino’s Top 10 Films of 2013 (so far). The list is only in alphabetic order, not any real ranking. Here is the first 5:

Japanese filmmaker Sion Sono is upset that people keep asking about the Tarantino influence in his new film because of the yellow track suit (Kill Bill style). He’s ticked because it was a Bruce Lee thing, not a Tarantino thing.
Fair enough, but when your trailer looks like a weird cross between Reservoir Dogs, True Romance and Kill Bill – its not exactly the Bruce Lee influence that stands out.
His film is called Why Don’t You Play In Hell?
I doubt Disney had any interest in him either. A Tarantino Star Wars would be an odd experience indeed.
An article about the ABC TV show “Scandal” that starts Kerry Washington. Kerry plays Broomhilda in the upcoming Django Unchained.
I always like to follow the careers of folks that appear in Tarantino movies to see how other directors use them after their big exposure. Here is a short review of The Adopted which starts Mélanie Laurent (Shosanna from Inglourious Basterds)
I didn’t pay much attention to the Oscars this year, but did notice that Robert Richardson won for Best Cinematography (its his 3rd award in that category) for his work on the Martin Scorsese Hugo.
Why do I mention this? Because Robert Richardson is the cinematographer for Django Unchained.
