The majority of films are on the list below are compelled to put a halt to something. That something can be anything, but it’s the driving force that makes some of these films approach greatness. The impulse to avoid something or to alter an emotion have consumed the films in my top 10. An aging director in Pain and Glory desperately tries to avoid the bleak fact that his best years, personally and creatively, are well behind him by avoiding drifting into creative obscurity. In Portrait of a Lady on Fire, two ravishing young women must avoid the passionate feelings they have for each other, no matter how difficult such a task is. Quentin Tarantino ruminates extensively on the concept of altering time. His Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood envisions a world where Charles Manson and his disciples get the ultimate comeuppance. In Uncut Gems there seems to be an inevitable ending that its main character cannot avoid, no matter how tirelessly he tries. And in The Irishman an aging gangster wants so badly to avoid his inner conscious that he tries to avoid his true emotions at all costs, but sometimes trying all your might just isn’t enough.
Writer and director Quentin Tarantino‘s ninth film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood, is making its way to home video soon.
Sony Pictures has announced both release dates and the bonus features that will be included in the Digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD releases of the movie, and you can find all of the info below along with a deleted scene.
Quentin Tarantino is the most influential American filmmaker of the past quarter century. A passionate lover of so many classic genres, Tarantino has spent 30 years re-inventing and combining those genres into modern films for modern audiences all while infusing a dialogue style never heard before and oft-imitated since. His movies are violent, loud, feature colorful language, and above all else, they’re just plain cool. Technically, his directorial debut was My Best Friend’s Birthday from 1987, but only 36 minutes of that project exists. His first official film was 1992’s Reservoir Dogs, and he wrote gangster True Romance and a draft of Natural Born Killers before hitting the stratosphere with Pulp Fiction in 1994.
With the recent release of Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, Tarantino officially has 9 feature films he’s both written and directed on his resume (when we count Kill Bill as one movie, which they do on the poster for the Once). And since rankings and lists are always fun, I’m going to countdown Tarantino’s filmography in order from worst to best, along with a mention of each entry’s Best Moment.

Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is a deep and profound love letter that reads like an odyssey of the success and struggles of those who live within a world that only a few people understand. The director knows full well how things function and operate in this industry and, as such, provides an in-depth look at all the wheeling and dealing that goes on in a very meta way. Backed by a wealth of rich dialogue, razor-sharp humor, juicy violence, and fantastic chemistry between its leads in Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is a fascinating work of art with some blemishes.
Sony Pictures has released the second trailer for Quentin Tarantino‘s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The first trailer was released back in March.
The mega-ensemble film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Rick Dalton, a TV actor who is looking to make his break into movies, and Brad Pitt as Dalton’s stunt double. Set during the end of the Golden Age of Hollywood, the two navigate their way through the changes of the entertainment business, all the while not realizing that their neighbor, Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie), will become a part of one of the most infamous murders of 1969. Check out the full trailer below.
