    Redbox's 10 Most Rented Films Of 2013 Reveal People Really Like Melissa McCarthy

    Sometimes it's hard to tell if the buzz around an actor or actress exists simply among entertainment writers or has currency in the real world.

    LeVar Burton Calls "Bullsh*t" On Quentin Tarantino's Dismissal Of 'Roots'

    No, you suddenly haven't time-traveled back to 2012. Steve McQueen's acclaimed "12 Years Of A Slave" is bowling over critics and brutalizing audiences so it is hardly a shock that last year's slavery flick, the decidedly more pulpy "Django Unchained," would be brought back into the conversation. Que...

    Samuel L. Jackson Talks Squashing Beef With Spike Lee For 'Oldboy,' Plus 'Django Unchained' Deleted Scenes

    If nothing else positive comes from Spike Lee's remake of “Oldboy,” it can at least boast the director's reunion with his former frequent collaborator, Samuel L. Jackson.

    'Jane Eyre' Director Cary Fukunaga Concerned About "Irreverence For History" & Inaccuracies In 'Django Unchained'

    Though it feels like a lifetime, it's hard to believe it was only about six months ago that Quentin Tarantino's snarling slavery spaghetti western epic "Django Unchained" was riding high in theaters, and causing no small amount of chatter.

    Will Smith Says He Wanted Tarantino To Rewrite 'Django Unchained'; Didn't Think Django Was The Lead

    While "Django Unchained" was pretty much an unqualified success in terms of awards and money taken in (a Best Picture nomination, two Oscars and $400 million worldwide), there'll always be an intriguing what-could-have-been hanging over it: Quentin Tarantino wrote the title character for Will Smith,...

    Ennio Morricone Says Quentin Tarantino Uses Music "Without Coherence" & Says He "Won't Work With Him Again"

    With "Django Unchained" galloping its way to over $400 million worldwide, winning Quentin Tarantino another Oscar (leading to one of the most self-serving acceptance speeches of the year), it's hard to argue that the director has never been hotter.

    Watch: Quentin Tarantino Awkwardly Explains 'Django Unchained' Deleted Scene With Australian Accent

    As Quentin Tarantino explained during his questionable Oscars speech, 20 or 30 years from now when people reflect upon his films, his signature characters will be the reason they’re still watching. “Django Unchained” is indeed worthy evidence for that claim, but one role -- Quentin...
