A new Tarantino film brings with it a new batch of expected side dishes: takedowns,hyperboles,talk of Oscar potential.As for the content of the film itself,Quentin Tarantino never fails to deliver a distinct musical prowess along with the zippy dialogue and ironic violence.A dancing Leonardo DiCaprio and a groovy Margot Robbie from the trailers already promise thatOnce Upon a Hollywoodwill be no exception.Before we get to that film,let's look back at the best song cues from Tarantino's films...

Smackdown '94: Uma,Dianne,Jennifer,Helen,and Rosemary

Presenting Oscar's Chosen Supporting Actresses of the Films of 1994.

THE NOMINEES: The Academy wrapped up their love affair with a previous winner (Dianne Wiest) while starting a new one with a future winner (Helen Mirren).Two fresh-faced delights (Uma Thurman,Jennifer Tilly) and an esteemed veteran (Rosemary Harris) were along for the ride.

In a rare turn of events the shortlist leaned far away from tears and dove headfirst into stylized fun or outright belly laughs (Rosemary Harris was the only player in a traditional drama).A quick list of the roles sounds like a joke set-up or at least a wild party: A fertile queen,a pompous diva,a wealthy society matriarch,and not but one buttwotrouble-maker gangster molls who moonlight in acting.


Here to talk about these five nominated turns are,in alpha order:Erik Anderson(Awards Pundit),Nick Davis(Professor),Itamar Moses(Tony-winning Playwright),Alfred Soto(Editor/Critic),and your hostNathaniel Rfrom The Film Experience.亚博主页[Apologies but the sixth announced panelistSheila O'Malley-- who previously provided brilliant insight in our 1984 discussion -- had to attend to a last minute emergency so we'll have to catch up with her again down the road.]

Readers form the collective panelist each month (though there were weirdly fewer votes this round for such a recent year!).Youbroke the panel tie to determine the winner this time around.Now it's time for the main event...

Throwback Fun: Favorites of 1994?

Tuesday's revisit to the essential and apparently sorely underseenQueen Margot(1994) and the comments thereafter had me thinking about favorite films from 1994.This website wasn't around back then of course (I think the internet was just in listserv mode at that point?) butIwas already making lists.So what would I have nominated had our Film Bitch Awards been around back then?What would you have nominated had you had an Oscar ballot?

The answers (fluid as they are should rewatching ever occur) areafter the jump...
