    In an interview with YourBlackWorld.net, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan interpreted the movie Django Unchained as "preparation for a race war." “To me, the movie had a purpose,” he said. “If a black man came out of that movie thinking like Django and white people came out of that movie seeing the slaughter of white people and they are armed to the teeth, it’s preparation for a race war.”

    **SNIP** Najee Ali, director of the advocacy group Project Islamic Hope, plans a news conference Tuesday with other Los Angeles black community leaders calling for the removal of the toys from the market. Ali called the action figures "a slap in the face of our ancestors." "We were outraged," said Ali, upon learning of the figures. "We feel that it trivializes the horrors of slavery and what African Americans experienced." The action figures are collectibles recommended for people older than 17.

    In talking about the movie, Tarantino got into how African-American culture was a part of his life growing up. In fact, he claimed his mother dated Wilt Chamberlain in the 1970s. “Black culture is my culture growing up,” Tarantino explained. “Yeah, it was almost like a sitcom the way we lived in the ’70s. She was in her 20s, she was hot, alright, she was a hot white girl and her best friend named Jackie was a hot black girl and her other best friend, Lillian, was a hot Mexican girl. And they lived in this swinging singles apartment with...

    It's time to get serious. More anti-conservative trash has come from their mouths. More influence from their wallets. You know who. You've known them for years. Was it unfair that Republicans were spared from the wrath of Hurricane Isaac? Samuel L. Jackson thinks so. See here.

    BIG HOLLYWOOD INTERVIEW: Quentin Tarantino, a Glorious ‘Basterd’ Quentin Tarantino exploded on the world film scene in 1992 with “Reservoir Dogs,” a brutally profane yet ingeniously plotted and often funny deconstruction of the heist-film genre. He took things to a whole other level in 1994 with “Pulp Fiction,” reviving the foundering careers of superstars John Travolta and Bruce Willis while launching the star careers of Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman while winning a Best Screenplay Oscar himself. Yet in the 15 years since that classic, Tarantino hasn’t been able to score quite as big an impact. 1997’s “Jackie Brown”...

    Last night’s Red Eye discussed how Hollywood films like to use certain kinds of villains over others. Host Greg Gutfeld has a beef with the new "Rambo," "GI Joe," and Quentin Tarantino’s "Inglourious Basterds."According to Gutfeld: “These three films have two things in common. They avoid present real danger in the world and choose villains that are not just safe but politically correct to hate.” On some level this is true. The film industry, like any other business, generally wants to appeal to the largest audience possible. Picking “safe” enemies is one way to do that. As far as...

If you intend to watch the film but haven't done it yet, see it before reading further. The article will still be here when you're finished.) With Inglourious Basterds, his genre-scrambling film about vengeful Jews killing Nazis, writer-director Quentin Tarantino has had his strongest opening weekend ever, finishing first at the box office and taking in about $37.6 million. His movie deserves to do well next weekend, too: It is witty and suspenseful, smart and entertaining. It is also controversial, which ought to boost its receipts even...

In fact, I often had to resist the reflexive temptation to leave. The film is simply disgusting. I worried that my fellow audience members would be drenched in a fresh, steaming coat of my own vomit, to be absolutely truthful. Someone asked Writer/Director Eli Roth after the screening how he managed to convince the MPAA into an R-rating. Roth laughed...

    BRISTOL, Tenn. - Quentin Tarantino has produced his share of action-packed, thrilling moments. For once, he was just along for the ride. Tarantino, a NASCAR novice, was treated to several hair-raising laps in a stock car Saturday that left the eccentric film director speechless at Bristol Motor Speedway. "Yeah, baby! That's what I'm talking about!" he yelled after several seconds of silence. "That was incredible. I didn't 100 percent know what to expect when I got here. I was very open to be intoxicated, and I most definitely was." Tarantino was introduced to NASCAR by good friend Mauricia Grant, a...

    Cannes jury head Quentin Tarantino has said Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 won the Palme d'Or on merit alone. The documentary alleges links between US President George Bush and top Saudi families, including the Bin Ladens. But Kill Bill director Tarantino insisted Moore's overt political themes did not influence his jury's choice. "I knew all this politics crap would be brought up," he said. "We all agreed that Fahrenheit 9/11 was the best movie of the competition." Tarantino said when he was on stage with Moore on Saturday night to present the award, he told the director politics had nothing to...

    “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...

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...
