Celebrate Quentin Tarantino’s 50th Birthday With His 10 Most WTF Movie Death Scenes Of All Time

Quentin Tarantino turns 50

Quentin Tarantino is the Anti-Disney. His hugely influential and popular films have featured some of the most intensely violent and twisted scenes in cinema history. Sure they were brutally hard to watch, sometimes offensive and VERY NSFW, but they go SO far over the line that you just have to sit back and watch with wonder, all the time thinking “Whoa, this guy ain’t like you and me!”

Oscar’s Biggest Surprises: Snubs For Ben Affleck, Kudos For Beasts

Ben Affleck and Katherine Bigelow weren't nominated for Directing Oscars, but Beasts of the Southern Wild's helmer was.

First, the good news: 2012 was a really good year for movies. Now the bad: That means no matter who got an Oscar nomination this morning, there were bound to be a bunch of disappointed, but really deserving and talented, folks in Hollywood. Maybe they’ll take the relieved attitude this year’s host Seth MacFarlane suggested before making the announcements: “You can stop doing interviews where you pretend you had such a great time making the movie.”

The biggest snubs we saw were in the director category, where dark horse candidates Michael Haneke (Amour) and Benh Zeitlin (Beasts of the Southern Wild) edged out favorites Ben Affleck (Argo), Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty), Quentin Tarantino (Django Unchained) and Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) — all of which were also nominated for Best Picture.

“No Best Director or Best Actor for Argo. Really? Even though it got a Best Picture nomination?” Deadline’s Dominic Patten wrote. Read more…

Django Unchained Pics: Release Jamie Foxx From These Pants!

Jamie Foxx in Django Unchained

Many people have wanted to free Jamie Foxx from his pants before. This is nothing new. But today, we are starting this campaign for more altruistic reasons. Really. Because after seeing (on EmpireOnline.com) the second batch of photos from the Oscar-winning actor’s upcoming Quentin Tarantino movie, Django Unchained, we worry about both his health and the possibility that he can add more little Foxxes to the world (in addition to his two daughters). Perhaps we should have a word with Tarantino and his costume designer — they may be able to assure us that these camel-colored, crotch-embracing pants were padded to ensure the safety of their wearer. Or maybe there was a crotch double employed? Either way, we are really excited to see how their ill-fitting nature plays into the plot of this movie.

And in case you’ve been so distracted by the pants, and the ridiculous nature of Foxx’s and Leonardo DiCaprio’s facial hair, here’s a brief summary of the plot of the movie, due out this December 25: Django (Foxx) is a slave-turned bounty hunter who is trying to rescue his wife from a deranged plantation owner (DiCaprio). He’s also on a revenge mission with a German bounty hunter played by Christoph Waltz. Head over to EmpireOnline.com for more pics of those beards and pants.

Rumor We Love: Quentin Tarantino Is A Toe-Sucking Fetishist?

How we reveled when we read Gawker‘s piece on Quentin Tarantino‘s apparent toe-sucking fetishism. That’s not something you get to hear about every day, ya know. If you find this title of this post fully WTF, then wait till you the whole story. Although, whether it’s a story or a tall tale is something we’ll probably never know. It all stems from an email a young lady sent out to fifteen of her acquaintances and friends. Yes, fifteen of them, which ironically corresponds with her pending “15 minutes of fame.” This woman apparently met Quentin at a schoomzy party where he dropped such pick up lines as “…you’ve got a mouth on you. I like that.”

Sassy lady and Quentin went full-out and  publicly made out at the party, and also headed back to his house where they took flirtatious pictures together in a photo booth . Which isn’t bulls—t, because she included the pictures. Which you can see resting on what looks like a film script — nice touch, lady! After a brief cameo by Jamie Foxx, the couple continued making out, and then he took her to the bedroom. Cue the sexy music, right? Well … let’s hold judgement on that.

Girlfriend decided she actually didn’t want to get with Quentin and started devising an exit plan. Fortunately for her, she didn’t need one because, as her email dictates, he asked, “Can I suck on your toes while I j—k off?” You read correctly. Which is what he did — twice.

Enjoy her entire email over at Gawker, because face it, you totally want to.

Quentin Tarantino Sues True Blood Creator Alan Ball For Having Noisy Birds

This is one of the more interesting lawsuits we’ve come across recently: Quentin Tarantino is suing his neighbor, True Blood creator Alan Ball, for having noisy pet birds. Tarantino lives next door to Ball and his partner Peter Macdissi and says that the outdoor aviary full of incredibly loud macaws that the couple installed on their property is basically ruining his life. The lawsuit explains:

“On a daily basis Defendant’s Macaws, large tropical birds known for their loud squawks and screams, are placed in an outdoor aviary where they emit blood-curdling screams at random intervals for 7 to 8 hours each day, Nearly every day, Mr. Tarantino and other in his home are subjected to the Macaws obnoxious pterodactyl-like screams, which are not only starling, but have also seriously disrupted Mr. Tarantino’s ability to work as a writer in his home.”

Hashtag this story #RichPeopleProblems or maybe #KillBallVolume2? Ball had better watch out though, if there’s one thing Tarantino is a master at, it’s coming up with creative ways of avenging those who have been wronged, and these birds might provide some inspiration.

Adam Levine, Keri Hilson Break It Down For Quentin Tarantino

If you’ve ever been struck with paralyzing unease while listening to an easy listening station, you probably have a Quentin Tarantino film to thank for that. Tonight Tarantino received the Music + Film Award at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, a new award that fits perfectly with the director’s creepy, fun, always ingenious melding of film and song. Prior to Quentin receiving the award, Maroon 5′s Adam Levine serenaded the crowd with The Stealers Wheel’s “Stuck In The Middle With You,” forever linked in our mind with Reservoir Dogs, and Keri Hilson brought it home with Dusty Springfield’s “Son Of A Preacher Man,” featured in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction.

Reservoir Dogs’ Tim Roth presented his former boss with the award and his skill with a soundtrack. “It’s the rhythm of the film, and tonight we celebrate Quentin for using his rhythm method so damn effectively,” Roth cracked. “Big laugh.” Tarantino was excited to say the least, reminiscing about how the producers of True Romance, a film he wrote, slashed the music budget because they considered it unnecessary. “I remember thinking to myself, I’m making a record album…I want to do it!” Quentin exclaimed. Tarantino thanked Critics’ Choice and proudly took his award home, probably to permanently warp another AM Gold hit.
