uma thurman kill bill vol 1

Uma Thurman is a renowned actress who has starred in some of the most popular movies to be released over the past 30 years. The characters she has portrayed are iconic and still referenced constantly today. The amount of great work Thurman has done is abundant, but her most successful professional relationship is undoubtedly with the brilliant director and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino. The two have collaborated several times, creating the masterpieces that are Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill Vol. 1, and Kill Bill Vol. 2 Thurman has the ability to bring out the violent, fun, and wild energy that possesses the movie characters Tarantino writes.

Even though the roles of Mia Wallace and The Bride are definitely Thurman’s most notable roles, she has given incredible performances in so many other roles throughout her career. Gattaca, Burnt, The House That Jack Built, and Beautiful Girls are just some of the few productions the actress has starred in over the years. Like film, Thurman’s career in television has been extremely successful, earning herself an Emmy nomination for her work in the musical series Smash. Next, Thurman is set to reunite with Pulp Fiction co-star Samuel L. Jackson for the comedy-thriller The Kill Room. Until then, here are Uma Thurman’s nine best movies, ranked.

Thurman portrayed Simone Forth in the 2015 drama/comedy Burnt alongside Bradley Cooper, Daniel Brühl, Sienna Miller, Omar Sy, and Alicia Vikander. This film about food, directed by John Wells, follows Cooper’s character, Adam Jones, who is given a second chance after his once-successful career as a top chef crumbled due to his addiction to drugs and alcohol. Adam’s frustration and attitude get him in trouble throughout his journey to redemption in London.

The House That Jack Built is a unique project in Thurman’s filmography. When you look at the work she’s done, there aren’t many horrors like this one due to the fact that Thurman is best known for her dramas and comedies. Matt Dillon stars as Jack, a serial killer and failed architect living in the Pacific Northwest, who reflects back on the murders that define his life. His brutal and unforgiving nature makes watching The House That Jack Built even more unsettling. The film was very well received by audiences and critics and is available to stream on Hulu and Amazon Prime. Screen Rant, in fact, listed the movie as one of the “most unsettlingly realistic horror movies.”

This beloved film is packed with such a talented and successful cast from Thurman to Matt Dillon, Natalie Portman, Timothy Hutton, Michael Rapaport, Lauren Holly, Mira Sorvino, and Rosie O’Donnell. With a 79% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, this comedy/romance has become a classic and, even over 25 years since the film’s release, is still being watched. The film follows a group of friends coming together for their ten-year high school reunion and reconnecting with the group of beautiful girls they once knew. Beautiful Girls should definitely be a must-watch for everyone.

In addition to Thurman’s great performance in Mad Dog and Glory, the film stars two of the most incredible actors working today: the legend that is Robert De Niro, and the brilliant Bill Murray. Thurman plays a waitress named Glory alongside a very relaxed cop nicknamed Mad Dog, portrayed by De Niro. The two are paired up together by Murray’s character Frank Milo, who was recently saved by Mad Dog. Although they don’t get off to the best start, the two slowly start to fall in love. The film was directed by John McNaughton and also involves great performances from David Caruso and Richard Price.

This sci-fi/romance Gattaca follows Ethan Hawke’s character Vincent Freeman, who is attempting to achieve his long-awaited dream of traveling to outer space. Vincent joins the Gattaca space program, where he ends up falling in love with Irene Cassini, an investigative officer in the program portrayed by Thurman. In addition to Thurman and Hawke, Gattaca stars Jude Law, Loren Dean, Gore Vidal, Tony Shalhoub, and Jayne Brook. Due to the constant advancements in technology, the sci-fi genre has rapidly increased over the past 25 years and is responsible for creating some of the most innovative and entertaining cinema we’ve seen in recent years.

Dangerous Liaisons is an extremely successful period piece that was released in 1988 and stars the brilliant Glenn Close, John Malkovich, Michelle Pfeiffer, Uma Thurman, Swoosie Kurtz, Keanu Reeves, and Mildred Natwick. This film is so loved and is considered a classic amongst all audiences, earning seven Oscar nominations in 1989 including Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Original Score, and winning Academy Awards in the categories of Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design. Everybody should see this movie at least once and experience this romance/drama.

In 2003, Thurman made her debut as the iconic Bride in Quentin Tarantino’s infamous Kill Bill Vol. 1. This character and film have become such icons over the years, and it’s all thanks to the brilliant screenwriter and director Quentin Tarantino. The Bride is a tough, violent, and passionate former assassin who wakes up from a four-year coma with a deep-rooted vengeance for her ex-partner named Bill. Heartbroken over the loss of her unborn child, Thurman’s character will stop at nothing to get even with everyone who played a part in her pain.

The following year in 2004, Tarantino’s next film and sequel Kill Bill Vol. 2 was released. Fans get to see the Bride go on a violent and wild adventure that ends in a shocking turn of events that leads Thurman’s character on an emotional roller coaster. Filled with action-packed fight sequences, the martial arts and stunts in both Kill Bill films are some of the most impressive aspects of the project and make up almost half of the movies. Tarantino is rumored to be considering the making of a Kill Bill Vol. 3, but even if that project does not happen, we can’t help but hope for another Thurman and Tarantino collaboration soon.

Coming in at number one on the list of the best Uma Thurman movies is without a doubt Quentin Tarantino’s iconic 1994 crime/drama Pulp Fiction. Thurman plays the wild and simultaneously fierce yet delicate Mia Wallace. Her costume has become one of the most notable looks in cinema and Thurman is responsible for taking part in some of the most beloved scenes in all of Tarantino’s works, including her dance scene with John Travolta’s character Vincent Vega. In addition to Thurman and Travolta, the film stars Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, Tim Roth, Harvey Keitel, Amanda Plummer, and Christopher Walken. There is truly nothing like Pulp Fiction, and the movie will go down in history for its innovative and brilliant contribution to filmmaking.

Published

ezgif 1 8d27975ab1

A spin-off prequel to the famous ‘The Big Bang Theory,’ ‘Young Sheldon‘ is a coming-of-age sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Steven Molaro. Set in the 1980s and 1990s, the narrative showcases the journey of the younger version of Sheldon Cooper. With his surreal intelligence and maturity, he manages to skip four grades and finds it difficult to fit in at school as well as at home. The period sitcom first released on September 25, 2017, on CBS.

The show resonates with younger as well as older viewers since it tackles a number of relatable issues, including struggles of fitting in with peers and the complexities of parenthood. This is one of the main reasons it has garnered appreciation and love from a large number of fans and critics. As the fifth installment comes to a close, fans are already clamoring for more. So, if you have been wondering whether there will be a round 6, here is everything we can tell you!

Young Sheldon Season 6 Release Date

‘Young Sheldon’ season 5 premiered on October 7, 2021, on CBS, with the season ending on May 19, 2022. The fifth edition of the sitcom consists of 22 episodes with a runtime of 18-21 minutes each.

As far as the show’s sixth iteration is concerned, we have some good news to share! On March 30, 2021, CBS officially picked up the show for seasons 5, 6, and 7. That means the ‘The Big Bang Theory’ prequel had been renewed all the way through the 2023-2024 season. This is hardly surprising since the show became the most-watched comedy series on television in 2021.

Following the announcement, CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl stated, “Young Sheldon dominates the broadcast comedy landscape by over +2.5 million viewers and is the lynchpin of CBS’ top-rated Thursday comedy lineup. The humor, warmth and heart exuded by the Cooper family is an undeniable hook for the millions of fans who tune in each week. We’re excited to see what the next three seasons have in store for a slightly older Sheldon and all the Coopers.”

Having received an early renewal, the production team must already have a solid plan in place to deliver new seasons on time. Before COVID-19 hit, the show rolled out a new edition in September every year. But season 4 was evidently affected by the pandemic. However, networks and streaming platforms have been trying to adjust back into their regular routines. With that being said, we can expect ‘Young Sheldon’ season 6 to release in September 2022.

Young Sheldon Season 6 Cast: Who can be in it?

It is almost certain that all the main cast members will reprise their roles in the show’s sixth round. This includes Iain Armitage (Sheldon Cooper), Zoe Perry (Mary Tucker Cooper), Lance Barber (George Cooper Sr.), Montana Jordan (George “Georgie” Cooper Jr.), Raegan Revord (Melissa “Missy” Cooper), Annie Potts (Connie “Meemaw” Tucker), Matt Hobby (Pastor Jeff Difford), and Wyatt McClure (Billy Sparks). In addition, according to sources, Emily Osment (Mandy) has been promoted to the main cast billing for the upcoming installment. 

Other cast members who play pivotal roles in the series are Wallace Shawn (John Sturgis), Ryan Phuong (Tam Nguyen), Melissa Peterman (Brenda Sparks), Doc Farrow (Assistant Coach Wayne Wilkins), Rex Linn (Tom Petersen), Mckenna Grace (Paige Swanson), and Craig T. Nelson (Dale Ballard). Therefore, they might be seen again in the sixth iteration. We may even get to see some fresh faces in case new characters are introduced.

Young Sheldon Season 6 Plot: What can it be About?

In the fifth season, Sheldon continues to question the rationality behind religion and settles into his new dorm room. Georgie makes some life-changing decisions and lies about his age to get close to Mandy. Meemaw and Dale break up after dating for a while. Later, Georgie comes clean to Mandy but gets her pregnant, which stirs up gossip in the church. Amidst the drama, Mary feels alienated from her church and wants Georgie to marry Mandy. Furthermore, George Sr.’s job is in jeopardy.

In the season 5 finale, Mary and George Sr. look for new jobs, while Sheldon is hit with the initial signs of puberty. Elsewhere, Meemaw and Georgie travel across the border on a business trip. The sixth round is expected to unpack a lot of drama, especially the one surrounding Georgie and Mandy. We are likely to find out if Mary can convince the pair to get married or not. As for Sheldon, he is likely to go through some drastic changes due to puberty. In addition, we may get to see how the relationship between Mary and the church changes with time.

Romantic Comedies That Were Too Corny To Finish

Published

on

l intro 1652878967

Gifted with a superb cast that features Jennifer Aniston, Adam Sandler, and a cameo by Nicole Kidman, “Just Go With It” isn’t necessarily one of Adam Sandler’s best (nor worst) films. This romantic comedy follows plastic surgeon Danny (Sandler), who pretends to be married to get with women. Whether he’s giving off the impression of a bad marriage or some other aspect, he gains sympathy points from these suitors, which leads to a string of one-night stands. It’s the perfect scheme until — of course — he meets the girl of his dreams, Palmer (Brooklyn Decker). She finds his wedding ring, and is appalled to discover he’s married. At this point, the real fun and games begin, as Danny must pretend he’s going through a divorce, so he can be with Palmer. He enlists the help of his assistant Devlin (Aniston), who pretends to be his soon-to-be-ex wife Katherine … and who happens to also be a single mom to two kids, so Danny ropes them into his web of lies as well.

Though a box office success, the movie was not a critical one, as evidenced by its low rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Critic Roe McDermott writes for Hot Press, “The film is indeed predictable and juvenile, and doesn’t so much lapse into clichés as unabashedly dive in.” As Danny digs himself deeper into a hole of lies, events become more unbelievable and over-the-top, to the point that it’s hard to just go with it and stick with this movie. Since this is a rom-com, love conquers all in one form or another, however ridiculous the story may be. Nevertheless, an all-star cast makes this movie intriguing, regardless if you make it all the way through or not.
