he coulda just said "i never dated her, i never met her in person, but shes a rabid cow bitch." wished cancer on her colon.

No one gives a shit about what Schwarzbaum isn't doing and why.  And no one gives a shit about Eli Roth, not even Schwarzbaum, who didn't mention him or his movies by name in her piece.  I think he's more hurt that she didn't name drop him.  It means his name isn't synonymous with horror yet.

Because she hasn't mentioned it?

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

i agree. eli roth can eat a dick for making shit movies and she can fuck off for criticizing movies she hasn't seen.

I never read Schwartzbaum's columns for advice on films, since my tastes are usually different from hers, but I think she's right on that. I have seen a few movies that qualify as torture porn, and they really don't use the torture device for any purpose other than to satisfy people's ever-growing need for more and more gore. There is no message in these movies, there is no irony or point, really. It's just that moviegoers today don't get scared or affected by what horror used to be, so they keep upping the ante on disgusting and degrading, at the expense of the portrayal of women and foreigners on film.

I think Eli Roth gets way too defensive about it, since he tries to make it seem like he's some kind of visionary, but really he's just cashing in on that part of society that is, well, more bloodthirsty. Lots of directors exploit a certain demographic, like Tyler Perry or Jerry Bruckheimer, but for the most part, as ridiculously inane as their respective genres are, they are less high and mighty about the quality of the movies they make. Eli Roth needs to get off his high horse.

Eli Roth Confirms 'Trailer Trash' Date, New Details!
Source: Bloody-Disgusting     

After Eli Roth's faux trailer, THANKSGIVING, stole the show in Dimension Films' Grindhouse this past April, Roth confirmed rumors that he was working a feature length film entitled Trailer Trash. Not much was revealed other than it would be a full-length film consisting of fake movie trailers that all tie together. Today Roth confirmed that MGM will be releasing the film on August 22 and sent in a little bit more. Read on for the skinny.
 
Eli Roth writes into Bloody-Disgusting:

"...that's the date (August 22, 2008)! TRAILER TRASH was inspired by the two days we filmed "Thanksgiving," which was the most fun I've ever had filming anything.

Trailer Trash is not a horror film, it's a comedy. It will be very R-rated and completely insane, and I'm producing it with Mike Fleiss (who I did both "Hostel" films with), and writing it with my friends Jeff Rendell (my "Thanksgiving" co-writer, who also played The Pilgrim), Noah Belson (my co-creator on "The Rotten Fruit,") and my brother Gabe, who's collaborated with me on everything I've ever done.

I want to make a film like "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," which I consider to be the greatest achievement in the history of cinema. The best part is I get to shoot some new THANKSGIVING scenes, as well as other holiday slasher films I've always dreamed of making but never would because they'd completely ruin me. I can't wait to shoot!"

"Hostel" director ditching horror with new film

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Eli Roth, the director of the relentlessly gruesome "Hostel" movies, is aiming for a family crowd with his next project.

Roth told reporters on Wednesday he is two weeks away from finishing a script for a science-fiction action film inspired by the mainstream hits "Cloverfield" and "Transformers."

"This will be my first big-budget, PG-13, mass-destruction movie," he said backstage at the music industry's NME Awards in Los Angeles. "I went total chaos and pandemonium."

He declined to detail the plot ahead of a "big announcement" next month.

Films rated PG-13 in the United States strongly caution parents that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. But they are easier to market than R-rated films, which require viewers under 17 to be accompanied by an adult.

"I feel like I pushed the violence in R movies about as far as I can push it. I feel like I'm bled out. I wanna switch it up," said the 36-year-old protege of Quentin Tarantino.

"Everyone I know has been saying 'When are you gonna do a movie my kids can see?' And finally, I'm gonna make a movie that 13-year-old kids can see."

Roth was in theaters last year with "Hostel: Part II," the latest in a string of films belonging to the so-called "torture porn" genre. As with its 2005 predecessor, it revolved around hapless backpackers who are killed for sport by paying customers in Slovakia.

In the sequel, the tables are turned and one of the customers is castrated by his female victim. Critics were appalled and audiences did not exactly rush to see it. Still, it was profitable even before its DVD release, Roth said.

While the "Hostel" films and Roth's equally violent 2002 feature debut "Cabin Fever" were set up at independent studio Lionsgate, he said he would shop the new project to "the big guns."

EXCLUSIVE: Eli Roth Reveals Plans to Shoot ‘Transformers’-Like Blockbuster, ‘Thanksgiving’ Slasher Back-To-Back
Source: MTV

Filmmaker Eli Roth burst onto the scene a few years back with the gory, gruesome, great “Cabin Fever” and “Hostel” films, but has kept a relatively low profile ever since. Recently, he stopped by the MTV studio to tell us about his new top secret sci-fi screenplay, and the revolutionary double-barreled plan to finally film his “Grindhouse” trailer.

“I’m almost done with my new script,” revealed Roth, whose upcoming return to glory also includes his first major acting role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Basterds” this August. “I was actually almost done with it before ‘Basterds,’ but I had to put it down, and that was actually a good thing I took time away from it, but I’m going to finish that up and start shooting this fall.”

Although Roth couldn’t tell us the film’s name, he was enthusiastic about it being his first-ever big budget movie. “I don’t want to give away the title yet, because I have to make sure I own it 100%, but it’s going to be something that is really fun with lots of mass destruction,” he said. “I wanted to do something along the lines of ‘Transformers’ or ‘Cloverfield’ that was a little more science fiction-based, and with lots of chaos and mass destruction.”

“I don’t want to say what [the monster is] yet,” Roth added. “Once it gets set up, I will let everyone know. It is not aliens or robots or a virus - it’s a little more grounded. But when people hear it they are going to be like ‘That is going to be insane!’.”

If that doesn’t sound cool enough, here’s where Roth’s news gets really good: The filmmaker hopes to use the leftover budget from his blockbuster to finally shoot a low-budget, full-length version of his howlingly hilarious trailer from 2007’s “Grindhouse.”

“The plan is this: I want to do a huge budget movie, but tack on three weeks to the end of it and shoot ‘Thanksgiving’,” he revealed. “I want to do an $80 million dollar movie, and then schedule three weeks at the end to quickly shoot a $5 million dollar movie.”

Roth said that after he shoots his untitled sci-fi blockbuster, he’ll get back to his roots by filming “the sickest, bloodiest, most violent slasher movie,” he said of the “Thanksgiving” flick inspired by the holiday-themed horror classics of the ‘80s. “I want to make the highest body count slasher film I can.”

Once the sci-fi script is finished, Roth plans to shop the two movies around to studios, looking for an $85 million budget for the pair. “Yeah,” he explained of the plan. “You just do them both.”

Eli Roth is like that kid at school who tells one quick joke and people laugh so he just keeps riding that joke.  No one thinks it's funny anymore, but the cool kid started laughing at it so everyone else joins in, hoping to impress the cool kid.

I get the sense that Eli Roth could put out some good stuff if he just got over his own hype for a minute.  He's got some skills as a director, but he would be so much better in a director-for-hire role, working off of a solid script, than he is left completely to his own devices.  Cabin Fever was pretty atrocious, but both the Hostel movies flirted with excellence, even if they never sealed the deal with it. 

I'd really like to not have to hear him talk about how great he is, though.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

The funniest thing about this thread is how many shitty flicks Eli Roth has lined up and how none of them ever get made. He's always mad stoked about some shitty movie and he'll tell everyone about how it's going to be an awesome flick, then a few months later he'll do the same thing for another movie he'll never make.

Also, the Schwartzbaum part was pretty funny. She calls him a hack and the dude can't even offer a coherent rebuttal.

Hostel is such a good idea but he fucked it all up. Imagine what someone like Dario Argento or David Cronenberg could have done with that idea.

Eli Roth In Talks With Universal for Funhouse Redo
Source: Fangoria

Eli Roth (soon to be seen in Inglourious Basterds) opened up to genre journalist Alan Jones about a number of projects the Hostel helmer has in the works. The one that made this writer raise an eyebrow is a remake of Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse.

About two weeks ago, one of our sources was raising some noise that Universal was kicking around the idea of dusting the property off. Yeah, that's true, and Roth is the one holding the Swiffer. He tells Fango that he's in talks with the studio to develop a remake under his newly-formed Arcade banner which he operates with producer Eric Newman.

"It should be about the kids getting killed in horrible ways, put in different contraptions in the funhouse and the final girl being strapped into the ride and sent into the tunnels to be confronted by terrifying tableaux of her dead friends," Roth says. "A smart remake could be so much fun. Kill the kids in fabulous ways and continually reuse the bodies by making them freaks in the freak museum, sew their eyes shut, waxworks... That's the stuff I want to do in a remake of The Funhouse."

He also says Cotton, the exorcism film directed by Daniel Stamm, is now rolling in Louisiana with a cast of unknowns. The plot sounds clever (a preacher sets out to debunk his exorcism rituals and faces a real possession). Applied with the documentary format, we could be in for a wild trip. Read more about that film here and a potential Andrew Kevin Walker/Roth team-up picture called Psycho Killer, a film that's told from the point of view of a slasher.

Oh, wow -- another project Eli Roth gushes about that he'll never ever make? Add it to the pile, please.
