The Sandman: Cast, First Looks, Release Date, and Everything to Know About Netflix's Adaptation

Many fans have long believed that Neil Gaiman's beloved graphic novel series The Sandman could never be adapted into live action, but leave it to Netflix to give it a try. The first issue of the series was published by DC in January 1989, and it ran through March 1996. Along the way, this dark and dazzling fantasy saga managed to hit the New York Times Bestseller list and influence a whole generation of comic book writers, artists, and readers.

How Did Indie Films Rule the 1990s?

Are you still watching indie films? What was the first you watched?. The 1990s were the most exciting time for independent cinema. It felt like we had hundreds of voices being elevated for audiences all over the world. Those days feel like they're gone, and we'll talk about that, but I wanted to spend some time talking about what it was like to be an indie filmmaker in the 1990s.

Tarantino: "Politically correct? Pulp Fiction was criticized"

Quentin Tarantino, besides being a brilliant director, is a true phenomenon of physicality, verbal impetuosity and above all compulsive and contagious laughter. Impossible to resist him as it happened in the meeting with the public and the press at the Rome Festival that gave him a more than deserved career award.

EGX 2021: Interactive Fiction Might Be About To Have A Stellar Year

Some high quality showings from Interactive Fiction/Visual Novel games at EGX 2021 hinted at a very good year for the genre. I don’t think it’s a secret that this year’s EGX event had a different vibe to it. Some of the usual media partners that present at the event – Ubisoft, Activision, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo and more – were not in attendance. This had a pretty interesting impact on the event itself. Those people who usually queue for an hour to play the latest Far Cry/Assassin’s Creed/DOOM went looking for something else to play instead. Many people found what they were looking for in the Rezzed zone, a section of the show reserved for indie developers and the smaller boutique publishers. On Saturday especially, his area was packed full of people sampling some of the delightful games that had decided to attend. While people may have travelled to EGX to play Call of Duty, there’s a real possibility that they left the event thinking about games they’d never heard of before. That’s certainly the case for our writer Greg who spent an inordinate amount of time playing You Suck At Parking (but more on that in a different article).

THE TYRANNY OF EVIL MEN — CRROW 777. Crypto Assets are the future! Start your journey today!. Crrow 777 returns to SGT Report to discuss what Jules in Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction so aptly quoted, Ezekiel 25:17: “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother’s keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.”

Go: Why You Should Check Out This Great Pulp Fiction Copycat

In 1994, Pulp Fiction made a cultural impact on the filmmaking world as it not only changed up the way films were made, but more importantly, it made a killing at the box office. Nominated for seven Academy Awards and considered a success on all fronts, Tinseltown decided to try and piggyback off the success of Pulp Fiction and several clones of the classic movie were created. This isn’t a new practice for Hollywood as time and time again when a new type of film successfully breaks through then executives try to capitalize off it. Tired of Die Hard in a building? Try Die Hard on a plane (Passenger 57) or on a bus (Speed). That’s where Go comes in. Directed by Doug Liman (Swingers, Edge of Tomorrow), Go follows grocery store clerk Ronna, who ends up covering a shift for Simon, another clerk who happens to sell drugs on the side. Desperately needing money for rent, Ronna’s night becomes an incredible adventure that interconnects with several stories that follow the chaos and craziness of the fast world of drugs. Despite the overwhelmingly positive reviews of the 1999 film, Go had the unfortunate task of being labeled a Pulp Fiction clone, which likely scared off most audiences as the film only made $ 28.4 million at the box office.

Big Bad Wolves

From the same filmmakers as Gunpowder Milkshake, this thriller-satire is worth the admission to Prime. You have not seen a satirical thriller since Pulp Fiction that is both humorous and biting until you’ve seen Big Bad Wolves (2013). In fact, the closest to this light-hearted, macabre take is the directors as producers’ Gunpowder Milkshake (Ahron Keshales, Navot Papushado) earlier this year.

What’s Up With Quentin Tarantino & Feet?

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood has many shots of bare feet, which has resurrected an old question: what’s up with Quentin Tarantino and feet?. There are a number of elements that make Quentin Tarantino’s movies so unique – from their level and style of violence, to the dialogue and multiple pop culture references, to the frequent shots of feet (especially women’s feet). With the release of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, first as a 2019 movie and then a subsequent novelization (also by Tarantino), an old question has arisen again: What’s up with Tarantino and feet anyway?

20 facts you might not know about 'Reservoir Dogs'

20 facts you might not know about 'Reservoir Dogs'. When you think about when you first heard the name “Quentin Tarantino” you probably think of “Pulp Fiction.” The 1994 film was a huge success and immensely influential. It’s not where it all started for Tarantino, though. Before “Pulp Fiction,” Tarantino made another film steeped in genre with “Reservoir Dogs.” Without “Reservoir Dogs,” we don’t get “Pulp Fiction,” which means we don’t get “Kill Bill,” “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” or whatever Quentin has left before his purported self-imposed retirement. Here are 20 facts about the movie that put the young, upstart director on the map before he was put “on the map.”
