The Geekspotter’s Guide To Film & TV References In The Hateful Eight

The Geekspotter’s Guide To Film & TV References In The Hateful Eight
>>> A feature by Craig Skinner Ever since Quentin Tarantino first began writing and directing movies he’s been sprinkling references to his favourite films and television series throughout his work. Whether it’s a borrowed plot, a character name, a particular piece of framing or a certain costuming choice, there are enough breadcrumbs leading to Tarantino’s favourite media to possibly leave you feeling somewhat bloated, but also in...

Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece review

Pulp Fiction: The Complete Story of Quentin Tarantino’s Masterpiece review
In 1994 a young movie maker named Quentin Tarantino forever changed the world of film when he threw the movie making rule book out of the window and created the masterpiece that is Pulp Fiction. Then aged just 31, Tarantino managed to craft a new way of storytelling, with his disorientating, interwoven, multi-character style, and instantly became not only a movie making legend but a cult figure, who would continue to dominate the movie world with... 

Django Unchained Review

Django Unchained Review
There is a throwaway line in the movie How to Lose Friends and Alienate People where Simon Pegg’s character detracts another character that apparently thought that ‘cinema began with Tarantino’. This may be true to some moviegoers. Quentin Tarantino is an auteur who manages to open the eyes of many to the wonder of cinema, but cinema did not begin with him, nor will it end with him, but maybe Tarantino is cinema. When one looks further into... 

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For

Joseph Gordon-Levitt to star in Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For
Joseph Gordon-Levitt is proving to be the gift that keeps on giving. Thrown back into resurgence after the well-received (500) Days of Summer, he has since been part of many a lucrative hit. Since the 2009 anti-rom-com, Gordon-Levitt has been in films such as Inception, 50/50, The Dark Knight Rises, Looper and Lincoln. To star in those five movies alone is unprecedented, and yet JGL is one of Hollywood’s hottest current commodities. More recently...

Review: The Tree of Life

Review: The Tree of Life
It’s hard to miss the controversy surrounding this film, with topical debates about what the film is actually about (see our previous article here).  A short synopsis to start this review is quite strenuous to come up with. From the onset, it is a film about a young boy growing up in the 1950’s with two younger siblings and a very conflicted father played by Brad Pitt. Jump to the present day of a shining Chicago, and Sean Penn is this young...
