"Django Unchained” is an insane mess in several ways, showing one of our great filmmakers unfocused and chaotic, attempting racial and political insight while also satiating his own cinephilia. This is the most flat-out entertaining film of 2012. "Django Unchained" might be called a love story or a comedy, but it’s not particularly funny or moving and it's terribly self-indulgent.

Films by Quentin Tarantino aren't exactly Halley's Comet, but for a while there, they didn't come as often as some filmgoers would have liked. And while the filmmaker seems to be back at his pace of delivering a film every two or three years, the arrival of a new Tarantino picture generally makes the cinema world sit up and take notice. And as always, opinions on his films vary wildly from film to film, from cinephile to cinephile.

After “The Muppets” stuck fairly faithfully to the tone and style of the original Muppet big screen outing, 1979’s “The Muppet Movie,” it appears that its sequel will follow the “The Great Muppet Caper” in very much the same way. As the title suggests, the movie was indeed a great caper. Set in London, the film followed Kermit and Fozzie (playing twin brothers no less!) as a pair of reporters sent to interview the rich victim of a jewel thief. The new film is set to go in front of cameras in London later this winter, although we suspect the story could potentially stray into different parts of Europe, and we know that two of the key human characters will be a Russian femme fatale and an Interpol agent. We had expected Christoph Waltz to play the latter, but there’s now another actor being lined up for the role.

Okay, we've seen the trailers (which are more or less the same), we've broken down the soundtrack and even though it has started to screen for critics, there is still much more to discover with "Django Unchained." And indeed, a first clip gives us a fresh new look at the movie, featuring an actor and character that has been a bit in the background thus far.

While all the talk over the last day or so at the mouse house has been about Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm and the revitalization of the "Star Wars" movie franchise, 'Episode VII' isnt' expected to hit until 2015. So until that happens, Disney will have to continue to make shareholders happy and exploit the brands they do have ready to go. "The Muppets" are gearing up for a return to the big screen, and the film has landed its first big name.

Trilogy! Hollywood loves everything in threes and this week seems to be no exception. Of course, there's the announcement today of the new "Star Wars" trilogy coming for your wallet starting in 2015, and just yesterday, Quentin Tarantino revealed his upcoming "Django Unchained" might be the middle part of trilogy sandwich starting with "Inglorious Basterds." Well, until we find out if that will actually happen or will be a continual question mark like "Kill Bill 3," some new pics from "Django Unchained" have dropped.

This writer is probably one of the few who didn't care for the latest domestic trailer for "Django Unchained" when it landed a week or so ago, but after watching this brand new international trailer, that opinion could very much be turning around.

With a new trailer dropping just over a week ago, the only question left is: will Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained" deliver? On the one hand, this could be a tired retread of the same themes, tropes, influences, etc. we've seen from the filmmaker for his entire career. Or it could be using those very things to make a pointed commentary/statement on race, vengeance and more. Whatever it turns it out be, there is no doubt it will be singularly Tarantino-esque.

Well, this just got interesting. Actually, this just got even more interesting. With Michael Douglas already slotted to play Ronald Reagan, his Cold War foe in the upcoming "Reykjavik" has been cast and it's an actor who is increasingly becoming something of a chameleon on screen.
