Two recent articles detailed the possibilities of a single universe for all of the Pixar films and all of the Tarantino films. While they are interesting and plausible—in varying degrees—a world with Jamie Foxx’s Django would be incredibly different.

Real Steel

There are certain things in life that make everything much easier and you don’t even notice. In a movie, quality writing, or even mediocre writing, is something that you never notice because, when done properly, the film will flow seamlessly.

Personally, I never saw the original Total Recall out of a complete lack of interest, and I only saw the remake because I watched my friend working on the design for the cars (what up TEA) and Kate Beckinsale is incredibly gorgeous (not to ignore Jessica Biel). In the end, those were the only interesting parts. Continue reading
