Quentin Tarantino is known for crafting high-energy, violent, profane films that verge on the bizarre. One of his common tricks is to cast actors who have not been seen in a long time as he did with Pam Grier and Robert Forster in Jackie Brown. He does the same thing with music…he finds the songs we haven’t heard in a long time or obscure artists that are slotted in at just the right place in the movie. It’s part of the Tarantino movie making style.
Now, timed to coincide with the release of Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, he has complied 70 of his favorite songs from all his movies on Spotify. Here’s a sample of the breathe of his choices:
- George Baker’s “Little Green Bag” from the title sequence of Reservoir Dogs
- Kool & The Gang’s “Jungle Boogie” and Chuck Berry’s “You Never Can Tell” from Pulp Fiction.
- David Bowie’s “Cat People (Putting Out the Fire)” from Inglourious Basterds
- The White Stripes’ “Apple Blossom” from The Hateful Eight.
Tarantino says immodestly that listeners can “sit back, relax and move into the soundscape of a Quentin Tarantino movie. You may never wanna leave.” Once Upon A Time In Hollywood starring Leonardo Di Caprio, Margot Robbie and Brad Pitt (not obscure actors) opened to a strong box office and acclaim from reviewers.
In a project that was announced, and had everyone excited back in 2015, Netflix, Warner Bros. and producers Jared Stern and Ellen DeGeneres are finally ready to release the 13-episode series Green Eggs and Ham this fall.
It’s the story of the adventures of Guy-I-Am and Sam-I-Am who travel cross country testing the limits of their friendship, and in Dr. Seuss’s rhythmic fashion, “as they learn to try new things, they find out what adventure brings.”
The two lead characters are played by Michael Douglas and Adam Devine. They are supported with a pretty deep cast including Jillian Bell, Eddie Izzard, Diane Keaton, Keegan-Michael Key, Tracy Morgan, and John Turturro. Each episode will be roughly 30 minutes and there is a very high likelihood that this series won’t be a one and done thing. For any child or child-like adult who grew up with the Dr. Seuss, this should be a no brainer. A trailer is expected soon.
Ariana Grande is about to work with Jim Carrey and she’s thrilled about it. The two will be working together on the second season of Kidding, a major Showtime drama series where Grande will be playing a guest role. She announced her role in a recent Instagram post that featured a black and white photo of Jim Carrey hugging the popster. Grande described herself as speechless about the news she would be working on the project; she also said that she adored Jim Carrey ever since she was a little kid. She described Carrey as being more special, warm and generous in person than she ever imagined he could be. Season two of “Kidding” will premier on November 3rd. Though it is about the host of a kid TV show, it is not for kids.
Marlon Wayans has a new movie called Sextuplets coming to Netflix on August 16th. Sextuplets are like twins, but more …four more.
The plot starts with Wayans (Alan) searching for his birth mother ahead of the birth of his first child. He doesn’t know who she is and he doesn’t know that he was born as one of six. When he discovers the truth, he sets out to find his siblings too. Wayans plays all six siblings.
While Sextuplets has a Nutty Professor / Madea quality to it with one actor playing multiple characters, we are looking forward to see Wayans’s bring comedy to a family discovery message. Wayans said he is excited to be back in business with Netflix and that he loves how they embrace comedy and diversity.
