    So, take out great performances by Pacino, Williams, and Swank and you've got nothing? Guess The Phantom Menace would be great then if not for the crappy job the actors did right? Lucas didn't have anything to do with it at all? Same with Heath Ledger. Directors don't bring out anything in an actor. He could have been better in A Knights Tale if only he wanted to. Scripts and direction be damned.

    ...and the gimmicky Memento? The one he also wrote as well as directed? Speaking of gimmicky, how about that Pulp Fiction. POS movie because it was clever and cut back and forth between times right?

    You may not like Nolan because he's too dark, you may not like him because he seems a little "I'm too good for you", but to call him a hack or bland or any other adjective like that is just hating on a person because you don't like their personality. This "if you take away x,y,z" in his movies you can see how weak he is just rings hollow. Of course he would. Take away lighting and specific camera angles and Hitchcock isn't anything special either. The simple fact that you would HAVE to remove those things that they did to make them boring just goes to show you that they aren't.
    I respect your opinion on the matter but the above emboldened is patently false. Read up on the work Stanley Kubrick did with Shelly Duvall, specifically, during production of the Shining for exhibit A. The great directors bring out the best in their actors.

    I guess that's what I was trying to point out there. Saying that Nolan is mediocre does a disservice to the work he did with Pacino (who hasn't been anything but his Scent of a Woman character for 20 years).

    Quentin Tarantino Says INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS and DJANGO UNCHAINED May Be Part of a Trilogy | Collider

    Love the brass nuggets on this guy. I got to imagine his mind is aglow with whirling, transient nodes of thought careening through a cosmic vapor of invention.

    Isla Fisher Making 'The Switch' To 'Jackie Brown' Prequel | The Playlist

    Let’s straighten some things out. Quentin Tarantino’s 1997 film “Jackie Brown” -- which starred Robert De Niro and Samuel L. Jackson -- was based on Elmore Leonard’s 1992 novel “Rum Punch.” Now first time filmmaker Dan Schechter is mounting an adaptation of Leonard’s 1978 novel “The Switch,” which follows younger versions of the characters portrayed by De Niro and Jackson, who will now be portrayed by in their youth by John Hawkes and Yasiin Bey (aka Mos Def). Got it? Good. Isla Fisher is the latest actor in talks to join what will essentially be a prequel to Tarantino’s film.

    The untitled movie will follow Ordell and Louis (Hawkes and Bey) as they kidnap a corrupt Detroit real estate developer’s wife (to be played by Jennifer Aniston). Their plan is complicated when the husband refuses to pay a ransom for the safe return of his wife.

    Fisher would play Melanie, the same role Bridget Fonda played in “Jackie Brown,”

    Quentin Tarantino Says He Didn't Fall Out With Will Smith Over 'Django Unchained' Plus New Pic From The Film | The Playlist

    "He didn't walk away from it because he was scared of the material. It just wasn't 100 per cent right, and we didn't have time to try to make it that way," Tarantino explains to Playboy about the conversations which took place during the shoot of "Men In Black 3." "We left with me saying, 'Look, I'm going to see other people.' He said, 'Let me just see how I feel, and if you don't find anybody, let's talk again.' And then I found my guy."
    Here's the Playboy interview, by the way.

    Celebrity Interview with Django Unchained director Quentin Tarantino

    It's a good, long read and you don't have to actually hear him say anything!

    Quentin Tarantino Reveals He Was Offered 'Green Lantern,' Says Spielberg Gave Him Career Advice After 'Grindhouse' | The Playlist

    "One of the things Spielberg said that was cool was, he goes, 'Well, Quentin, you’ve been pretty lucky. You’ve had a success, to one degree or another, every time out. It’s almost like playing the game and not paying for it. All right? Today you paid for it. And it can make you a more well-rounded person, having done that. But the other thing though is the next time you have a success it’s going to be even much more sweeter because you learned what it’s like to have the cards fall the other way.' My confidence was rocked, but in this way: instead of taking a job, or writing something new, I went back to 'Inglourious Basterds,' old material that I knew was good. I said, let me solve it now, quit ****ing around, and just solve it."
