    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is taking aim at movie producer Harvey Weinstein, calling the studio head a hypocrite for slamming the NRA, but using violence in his own films.Citing Quentin Tarantino’s 2003 film “Kill Bill” — which Weinstein produced — the Texas senator said the sword fight at the end of the movie is “one of the most epically violent scenes.”“But you don’t see people wanting to ban knives,” Cruz said Thursday on Fox News’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”Cruz’s comments follow news that Weinstein — who co-heads The Weinstein Company production house with his brother — wants...
  • Conservative group to launch ad supporting Senate immigration bill (GOP Amnesty Conference is 7/10)

    As an overhaul of immigration laws shifts to the House, a right-leaning group is launching a new television ad campaign Monday that will call on House lawmakers -- and, implicitly, resistant Republicans -- to support the Senate-passed “border surge” as part of “conservative immigration reform." The ad seeks to influence rank-and-file lawmakers as House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) convenes Republicans behind closed doors to assess how the GOP majority will respond to the bipartisan Senate bill.

    House Republicans insisted Sunday that they plan to change key elements of the Senate-passed immigration bill, signaling a protracted and rocky battle ahead despite one Democrat's pronouncement that in the end the House will cave and pass the Senate bill anyway. Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee who is playing a major role in the chamber's consideration of immigration policy, on Sunday addressed what is perhaps at the heart of the impasse. He said the House, which is drafting its own plan, cannot agree to a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Rather, he wants...

Award-winning film editor Sally Menke, 56, worked on such movies as "Pulp Fiction," "Kill Bill" and "Jackie Brown."

    Former Democratic National Committee chairman and medical doctor Howard Dean believes that Democrats’ efforts to pass a Health Care Bill has deteriorated to such a point that desperate Democrats are willing to pass anything just for the sake of passing something. The dread just do something disease. And according to Dean Democrats don’t really care if what they pass is detrimental to the Country. (see 4:48min video) Please allow me to translate one point of Dean’s statement to Good Morning America’s George Stephanopoulos:

    The ranking Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee is demanding answers from the government agency that administers Medicare and Medicaid after it ordered a private health insurance company to stop informing its enrollees about looming Medicare cuts under President Obama's healthcare plan. In a letter last week, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) informed Humana that it had launched an investigation of the health insurance company's marketing practices. CMS has also ordered Humana to stop telling its enrollees that President Obama's proposed healthcare plan could lower their Medicare Advantage benefits. Medicare Advantage plans are private plans...

    Sharp Reaction to Immigration Bill's Defeat By Manuel Roig-Franzia Washington Post Foreign Service Saturday, June 30, 2007; Page A18 MEXICO CITY, June 29 -- Latin America reacted with sharp disappointment Friday to the U.S. Senate's defeat of an immigration bill, a decision that Mexican President Felipe Calderón called "a grave error" and Salvadoran President Elías Antonio Saca said was "a pity." Latin American governments have long hoped for a comprehensive reform package that would include guest-worker provisions and a route to legal status for the estimated 12 million undocumented migrants in the United States -- half of whom are Mexican....

    Executive producer Bennett Walsh has revealed it is possible Quentin Tarantino will return to China to shoot "Kill Bill" parts 3 and 4. At the Shanghai International Film Festival, Walsh unveiled the plot lines for the third and fourth films in the popular martial arts series, Crienglish.com reported. The third film tells the story of the revenge of two killers whose arms and eyes Uma Thurman hacked off in the first stories, and the fourth is said to concern a cycle of reprisals and daughters who avenge their mothers' deaths, Hangzhou-based newspaper City Express quoted Bennett as saying.

    Next week, the U.S. Senate will vote on closing off the debate and consider an immigration bill. Senator Bob Corker says he will vote against bringing the bill up for a final vote. Here is his statement on Friday: “I plan to vote against cloture on the immigration bill, as I have already done twice during this debate. I believe a better approach would be a more modest bill that focuses on border security, employer identification, and putting systems in place that will put us in a position to actually enforce a new immigration policy. “We have lost credibility in...

    Five years after Sept. 11, the Democrats have suddenly become obsessed with truth. Their version of it. Former President Bill Clinton is incensed with the ABC docudrama "The Path to 9/11," set to run Sunday night, that depicts his administration as cavalier in its disregard for the threats al-Qaeda posed, and too distracted by the Monica Lewinski affair in any case to act decisively. Clinton is concerned a TV dramatization will become the accepted version of history. Democrats in Congress threatened to wage regulatory jihad on ABC, and ABC went back into rewrite. Some observers are shocked by the hypocrisy...

    Hollywood - Although his latest films “Kill Bill” and "Kill Bill 2" have been denounced by critics for their leaden dialogue and for being mindless gorefests, Quentin Tarantino still remains one of the most influential film directors of recent times, say industry insiders. They cite as evidence of Tarantino’s influence the recent rash of films coming out of Hollywood with rhyming titles. “Shoot Zoot” (20th Century Fox, scheduled for release at Christmas) is based on the real-life story of legendary tenor saxophonist Zoot Sims whose career almost came to a premature end when he was attacked by 150 sword-wielding members...

  • Thomas Hibbs on "Kill Bill": Tarantino’s work is sadistic...to the audience

    National Review Online ^ | April 23, 2004 | Thomas Hibbs
    “Do you find me sadistic?" These words, spoken by the character Bill (David Carradine) in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2, could have been uttered by Tarantino himself. Of the violence perpetrated on and by female characters in Kill Bill Vol. 1, Tarantino gushed, "There's something intrinsically cool...something intrinsically more painful about beautiful women being abused that way, all right?" Tarantino's sadism in KB2 is manifested less by the overt violence inflicted on his characters than by the pain his seemingly endless, dramatically bloated, and verbose narrative inflicts on viewers. The second volume brings to a close the quest for...

He encouraged kids to see "Kill Bill -- Volume 1," a film that, depending on your opinion, is either a sickening bloodbath, a delightful bloodbath, a boring bloodbath or a comic bloodbath, but definitely, indisputably, a bloodbath.</p>
  • Ebert: Maybe female actions stars are "cast because the liberal media wants to see them succeed"

    "To see O-Ren's God-slicer and Go-Go's mace clashing in a field of dead and dying men is to understand how women have taken over for men in action movies. Strange, since women are not nearly as good at killing as men are. Maybe they're cast because the liberal media wants to see them succeed. The movie's women warriors reminds me of Ruby Rich's defense of Russ Meyer as a feminist filmmaker (his women initiate all the sex and do all the killing)."

    Kill Joy for Quentin Tarantino October 2, 2003SEVERED ears are not longer enough for Quentin Tarantino. In "Kill Bill Vol. 1," limbs fly by the dozens and a few heads roll as well. The idiosyncratic writer/director's fourth film, opening Oct. 10, even shows a tongue stretched to its snapping point. Somebody seems to be stepping over the line here. "Well, um, what line would that be?" Tarantino asks. Nearly 10 years after "Pulp Fiction," he's back - with vengeance and more than 100 gallons of fake blood. "Kill Bill Vol. 1" follows The Bride (Uma Thurman), an assassin whose decision...

    LOS ANGELES, July 15 — Miramax Films will take the unusual and potentially risky move of releasing "Kill Bill," the much-anticipated Quentin Tarantino martial arts action-adventure film, as two movies, the first to open in the fall. Miramax will in effect be taking a three-hour film with a 200-page script and turning it into a serial. Harvey Weinstein, a co-founder of Miramax, which is financing the film, said in an interview on Monday that the first installment would be in theaters on Oct. 10. The second release date is in still being negotiated, but it could be two to six...

    This summer, copies of a nearly 200-page screenplay wrapped in a glossy white cover discreetly made their way around Hollywood. "Uma Thurman is going to KiLL BiLL," read the hand-written, red-and-black scrawl on the cover — a chilling promise of the relentless mayhem inside. The violent movie being born from these pages will not be released by the Walt Disney Company's Miramax Films unit until October 2003, if all goes according to plan. But the second coming of the film's director, the long-absent Quentin Tarantino — and the inevitable debate about his prospects in what was supposed to be moviedom's...
