Ennio Morricone has announced that he’s being brought back by Quentin Tarantino for the auteur’s next filmatic adventure. Morricone let slip the news while recounting a story about telling Tarantino he needs more advanced noticed when it comes to scoring a movie than he received for The Hateful Eight.
The Tarantinoverse is real? Well, I’ll be. I’m not one of those people who has dedicated serious time pondering their connection, but its interesting even still.
It’s Monday Morning Commute! A particularly sexy one, falling in the liminal state that exists after Christmas Eve and before the New Year. No one wants to work (I did work today, though), everyone is mentally checked out, and a good amount of us are enjoying the arts. Be it materials gifted (video games, books, movies) or showings to be attended (for me its Hateful Eight, maybe a fifth showing of The Force Awakens), this time of year always strikes me as particularly hedonistic. Anyways, what are you looking forward to this week? What are you doing for NYE? What movies are you seeing? What music are you listening to? Let me know in the comments!
But first, here is what I’m up to this week!
More Tarantino news today. ‘Cause just like that WarStar flick coming out keeps us talking about that whole shebang, Tarantino’s Hateful Eight press tour got him on our minds. In the past The Old Quent has expressed a desire to stop making movies after his tenth, and while I rolled my eyes at the statement (perhaps because I don’t want to believe he will ever stop), apparently it ain’t all hot air.
Or, at least, it reminds me. Between WarStar Awakens and The Revenant, I keep forgetting this glorious piece of cinema is almost upon us.
I don’t even know what that fucking title means. And truthfully, I don’t care. I’m just excited to be getting a better glimpse into The Hateful Eight.
Tarantino and company have dropped the final cast for The Hateful Eight on our asses. And boy is it dope. I love the eccentricities of Tarantino’s castings for all his flick, with the Excitable One (I can relate) often going with choices outside the Hollywood Machine’s box.
