Remember From Dusk Till Dawn? A fairly fun and bizarre film written by Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodriguez? Admittedly it’s been a while since I watched it but…nothing about it really screamed TV SERIES to me. Although I suppose if they can make TV shows based on Twitter accounts…they can do anything.
Robert Rodriguez launched the El Rey Network just last month, it’s a 24 hour English-language channel targeted at a Latino audience. The first scripted series to air on the new channel will be none other than From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.
The series will last 10 episodes, I’m not sure if that will be it or if another season will follow. I suppose it depends on what the reaction is. The series stars Robert Patrick, Madison Davenport, Don Johnson, Wilmer Valderrama, with D.J. Cotrona and Zane Holtz as the Gecko Brothers.
You can check out the trailer for yourself right after the jump!
Quentin Tarantino is sticking to the Western genre it seems, and there isn’t anything wrong with that. During an interview on The Tonight Show, Tarantino said:
“I haven’t told anyone this publicly, but I will say the genre: It’s a western,” but wouldn’t go into any more details other than to say, it wouldn’t be a sequel to Django Unchained. Tarantino explained, “I had so much fun doing Django, and I love westerns so much that after I taught myself how to make one, it’s like ‘OK! Let me make another one now that I know what I’m doing.”
That’s about as chatty QT can get on his movies isn’t it? Watch the clip below:
Well it’s been a long time since I have confessed to you all what I have been watching. It’s probably because what’s been on my TV lately has been a mixture of reality TV and losing sports teams. After giving it a little bit of thought, I came to the realization that I have been watching a lot of really good television lately. Am I missing any good movies and/or TV? Probably. Post a comment on the website or Facebook and let me know what I should check out!
The video below might not be up for long (NBC doesn’t care to be liked) but it’s worth finding if you have to. Saturday Night Live had a parody this past weekend titled Djesus Uncrossed. You get it right?
That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed. Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture). Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.
The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:

Here is the final trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained, there isn’t a lot of new footage you haven’t seen from the previous trailers, but it’s still fun to watch. I’ll be checking this movie out his holiday season if for no other reason than DiCaprio’s crazy performance.

Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Quentin Tarantino Says DEATH PROOF Is the “Worst” Film He’s Ever Made; Watch Full Directors Roundtable Interview
THR‘s roundtable interviews are always entertaining and this year’s director’s roundtable is one of the best. It’s a one-hour conversation that involves Quentin Tarantino, Ben Affleck, Ang Lee, Tom Hooper, David O. Russell, and Gus Van Sant. There are a few highlights but the Internet is buzzing with Tarantino’s comments about retiring and his film Death Proof.
“I’m really well versed on a lot of directors’ careers, you know, and when you look at those last five films when they were past it, when they were too old, and they’re really out of touch with the times, whether it be William Wyler and ‘The Liberation of L.B. Jones’ or Billy Wilder with ‘Fedora’ and then ‘Buddy Buddy’ or whatever the hell. To me, it’s all about my filmography, and I want to go out with a terrific filmography,” he said. “[2007's] ‘Death Proof’ has got to be the worst movie I ever make. And for a left-handed movie, that wasn’t so bad, all right? — so if that’s the worst I ever get, I’m good. But I do think one of those out-of-touch, old, limp, flaccid-dick movies costs you three good movies as far as your rating is concerned.”
Below you can watch a clip of him talking about retirement and then the whole roundtable.
Here is a new trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film Django Unchained, it’s a bit more revealing than the past trailers as it sets up what’s going to happen at the beginning and middle of the movie. The cast looks to have had a lot of fun in their respective roles, especially Leonardo DiCaprio who looks and sounds like a maniac.
Adult supervision is required when Django Unchained opens on December 25th.
Watch the trailer below:
Well this is interesting, The Man with the Iron Fists is a movie I hadn’t heard of until now, and it’s produced by Quentin Tarantino, written by RZA and Eli Roth, and stars Russell Crowe. Already I’m interested at the sweet poster and crazy concept, but watch this trailer, it’s mental. Oh and I guess there’s a story in here too:
Since his arrival in China’s Jungle Village, the town’s blacksmith (RZA) has been forced by radical tribal factions to create elaborate tools of destruction. When the clans’ brewing war boils over, the stranger channels an ancient energy to transform himself into a human weapon. As he fights alongside iconic heroes and against soulless villains, one man must harness this power to become savior of his adopted people.
The film should be released in 2012 sometime, check out the trailer below.
