Happy 20th Anniversary To Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction, one of the most audacious, intense, electrifying, and unpredictable films ever made just celebrated its 20th Anniversary.

For sure, the film remains one of the wildest rides ever committed to celluloid, an absolute passion project and one that looks as if it was done with great ease by latter-day maverick director Quentin Tarantino (who also scripted the film with Roger Avary, both winning an Oscar for their work), and it’s a film of unconscious narrative, which has a road as slick and wet as driving in a hurricane down a slippery slope, and brimming with spontaneous abandon.

Happy 50th Birthday To Quentin Tarantino

Quentin Tarantino

Happy 50th Birthday today to writer/director Quentin Tarantino, who contemporized like a color wheel elements of grittiness, intensity, machismo, tough dialogue, and violence from decades of Hollywood productions before him, and honed and fine tuned it into a style that is all his own, presenting it to today’s audiences, most of whom might not be as astute as him in film history and knowledge, and hence, regard him as the progenitor for much of said cinematic adjectives.

That’s not to say that Tarantino has not been wholly original in many of his fine productions – he has, he certainly has. He wears his influences on his directorial and writing sleeve always, and at best, he presents a crackerjack good time at the cinema, where audiences are at once delighted, jolted, shocked, surprised, amused, repelled, and ultimately blown away by each and every one of his productions. It’s not that the works of Tarantino are strictly by numbers, but he’s certainly tread down weathered roads, by intensely detailed studies of dilapilated and yellowed film roadmaps through the years.

Holiday Geek Gift Guide 2011: DVDs and Blu-rays

I was about to start out this gift guide by writing some pretentious crap about the unifying power of cinema and television and how the greatest art form of the past century would make the perfect Christmas gift for that demanding loved one of yours, but then I put down the cough syrup and slapped some sense into myself.

But it is true that when you’re not sure what to buy someone as a present you can always surprise them with a fine movie or a boxed set of their favorite television series. Then as you sit back and watch their face light up with the joy of angels singing harmoniously in Heaven when they open the gift you can take a sip of spiked egg nog and let out a hearty Errol Flynn laugh because you are victorious and you didn’t even try.

That’s why we here at Geeks of Doom want to aid you in your soul-destroying quest to find that ideal DVD or Blu-ray if you’ve got the extra dough (and you drink silver chalices full of orphan tears), for that special someone in your life.

Watch Now: ‘Pulp Fiction’ Blu-ray Trailer

pulp fiction

Pulp Fiction, Quentin Tarantino‘s brilliant, award-winning 1994 underworld epic that was his follow-up to his directorial debut Reservoir Dogs, is finally being released on Blu-ray courtesy of Lionsgate on October 4, 2011. The studio has released a short trailer to promote the release, which you can watch here below.

The film, which Tarantino originally intended to make at Tri-Star Pictures until that studio put the project into turnaround and was ultimately picked up by Miramax, went on to become one of the most financially successful and critically acclaimed independent films released until that time. It helped to transform the fledgling indie studio Miramax into a major industry player and established its co-writer and director as one of the most influential of his generation.

Is Quentin Tarantino Armed & Ready To Make ‘Kill Bill 3,’ Possibly 4?
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Ever since fan-favorite director Quentin Tarantino made Kill Bill, there’s been whispers every once in a great while that there could be more to the Bride’s (Uma Thurman) story. The obvious remaining story would follow Vernita Green’s (Vivica A. Fox) daughter, who Beatrix told to come find her when she grows up, and that is one of the two that have been rumored.

While on a talk show in Italy, Tarantino was asked about any possible sequels to Inglourious Basterds or Pulp Fiction that we might see. He answered that Basterds has a prequel story that could happen eventually, and that Pulp Fiction isn’t going to happen. Tarantino then turned the tables to the woman interviewing him and told her she forgot to ask whether he would do a Kill Bill 3, so she did, and he answered “Yes,” as the crowd went nutty. No one knows how serious he is about it, or when it could happen, but it looks like the story is there. After his promise of a one year delivery of Basterds actually happened, we have about a 50/50 shot of this going down.

12 Of The Best Payback Moments in Film

12 Of The Best Payback Moments in Film

There are plenty of movies about revenge — Sweeney Todd, Revenge of the Nerds, Mad Max, Death Wish, Kill Bill, every third or fourth movie in an action franchise, and most recently, Universal Pictures’ Wanted, which comes out on DVD this Tuesday, December 2. Then there are other films that contain specific moments of satisfaction-guaranteeing payback in them.

In the action-packed Wanted, James McAvoy stars as Wes, a meek office worker whose frequent anxiety attacks make it difficult for him stand up to his abusive boss, his backstabbing best friend, and cheating girlfriend. But Wes’s life is completely changed one day when he meets the sexy assassin Fox (Angelina Jolie), who takes him under her wing and into the Fraternity, an Order of assassins. The payback begins when Wes whacks a computer keyboard to his best friend’s face, sending the letters F.U.C.K.Y.O.U. flying into the air; it ends when Wes discovers the ultimate betrayal against him and enacts a vengeful plan that, let’s just say, involves explosives and lots of guns on those who wronged him.

To coincide with the release of Wanted and its badass moments of comeuppance, the Geeks of Doom gang got together to pool their favorite payback moments in film.

12 Craziest Movie Casting Close-Calls

The Movie God   |  @   |

Mr. BeanAn eternity of films has come to our eyes over the years. Together they’ve formed the foundations by which good movies are built, given us our most cherished filmmakers and performers, inspired generations to dream, and even just allowed people to simply escape to another world if but only for a couple of hours.

But what if some of the most celebrated movies in cinematic history were different? What if your favorite film of all time’s main star was played by someone else? How different would everything be if just one legend never even came to be legend? These are the questions I found myself asking while bored and on an e-adventure one day; I was surprised at just how many massive characters were almost played by other actors.

After my little adventure I decided that I should share these gems with you, my favorite peoples in the whole word.

Before we begin, I came across some amusing casting close calls that probably wouldn’t have affected the film too much one way or the other, but still worth mention. Like, for instance, did you know that the studios originally wanted greatest actor in the world Matthew McConaughey for Titanic, but James Cameron wanted Leonardo DiCaprio? Did you know that Stuart Townsend was offered and Daniel Day-Lewis turned down the role of Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings trilogy before Viggo Mortensen was brought in? I didn’t either. I rather enjoy thinking about a Day-Lewis Aragorn. Like Hawkeye from Last of the Mohicans, but with a sweet beard, a sword, and an elven chick by his side instead of Madeline Stowe!

OK, that was fun. Now on with the show… Here’s a look at 12 of the craziest casting close-calls in cinematic history.
