That Basterd Brad Pitt wants his Nazzi scalps! Check out your first look at the new INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS poster!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. When it rains it pours, eh? Today seems to be our day to debut posters. First we had Miyazaki's next animated sure-to-be-masterpiece PONYO and now we have the jump on a character poster for Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. I'm fairly certainly you'll be seeing this plastered up all over Cannes in a couple weeks time. I still know very little about Tarantino's movie and I'm going to try to keep it that way for as long as possible. I trust the man. He hasn't let me down yet, but then again I seem to be the one crazy person that thought Death Proof was the tits. Shrugs. Enjoy your good look at the neck scar (especially in the clickable super big version)!

    That scar

    by DennisMM

    What a fucking gimmick. The script says it is never mentioned. Not even mentioned. Give me a fucking break. <P> Has anyone else read the 'LAST VERSION' script that's leaked online? What the hell was he thinking with the ending? What alternate reality does this story take place in, and why did he think people wanted to see a story set there? Oh, wait, QT hasn't thought about his movies since "Jackie Brown." It's all been off the top of his head.

    you, like others, seem to hate Tarantino more so than you hate anything he makes. So say him being his own biggest fan is his problem? Robert Altman said once that the director should always be his films biggest fan, or else he's not doing his job properly.

    by DennisMM

    Why shouldn't reading a bad script shape one's opinion of an upcoming movie? You CANNOT make a good movie out of a bad script, and I believe the end of this story, as scripted, makes what was at best an acceptable story into a ludicrous one that fails to stand up to even light consideration.

  • May 1, 2009, 6:22 p.m. CST


    by ReturnoftheCreepyThinMan

    Firstly, this guy isn't my definition of a Director. It seems that making movies is more of a hobby to this overrated douche. Three years between Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, which was on par with a fucking TV movie and Out of Sight was a better Leonard adaptation. SIX YEARS until that Kill Bill which was soo bloated with useless scenes that it had to be split in two when a little bit of editing and rewriting could have produced a classic. Another three years for Death Proof, which was fucking awful and, worst of all, BORING. One crash, one chase scene and an hour of fucking conversation soo dull that I thought that the movie was going to put me into a fucking coma. Another three years and QT has decided to bless us with another over produced exploitation film that will be massively overhyped and ultimately good but not great.<br> <br> So QT has been making movies since 1992 and he’s done exactly 7 movies as of 2009, 6 if you count Kill Bill as one. I have more respect for someone like Steven Soderbergh who usually crack s off a movie a year these days and at least experiments instead of sitting around all day watching movies and taking notes as to what he’d like to rip off, er, sorry, I meant HOMAGE. Also, maybe it’s time for QT to drop the auteur bullshit and work with some other writers since his best work (Pulp Fiction/Resevoir Dogs) was done when he was hanging out with Roger Avary who’s future scripts will be about prison rape and no doubt autobiographical.

    by hegele

    you sound idiotic. By your rational Woody Allen is a genius because he makes a film, sometimes two every year and stanely kubrick is a hack because hes only made 12 in a career that spans almost fifty years.

  • May 1, 2009, 6:26 p.m. CST

    Death Proof was. . .hrm

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    I'm not sure. Death Proof certainly had lots of good things going for it, namely hot chicks, the return of Kurt Russell, and a great car chase sequence. All three of those things, by themselves, were straight-up awesome. But Death Proof failed to add up to anything substantial. I'm not sure what it was that made the movie sub-standard when it had so many good things going for it. . .maybe the pacing, or the lack of a committed plot. But when I was done watching, I felt kind of underwhelmed. And I wanted to like it.

    i do think woody is a genius, but i'd rather only see his twelve good films and skip the shitty ones than sit through every one. ReturnoftheCreepyThinMan's argument was entirely based on Tarantino's productivity.

    *thumbs up* Reservoir Dogs = QT's best. I've always wondered why it was never converted into a stage play; it'd be perfect! Maybe it was and I'm just not aware...

  • May 1, 2009, 6:41 p.m. CST



    yeah, i don't get it. it doesn't look quirky or even dumb-grunt-tough. it just looks and sounds stupid. it'd be a hell of alot more intimidating if it was spelled right. i know it started as an homage to the original inglorious bastards- but maybe they couldn't get the rights to the real spelling? would be hard to believe if they couldn't swing that.

    Can we all chip in and get Mel Gibson a ticket?

    by cant_stop_yawning

    No doubt Death Proof and Jackie Brown, and if I never see The Curious Case, etc. that will be just fine with me. Do with a little Pitt kicking ass ala Fight Club and Snatch and a little ultra violence directed at Nazi's sounds like a nice antidote to all these fucking sequels, prequels and reboots.

    Tarantino's coke-addled brain...

    by TurdontheRun

    Is the reason for his erratic output, and his dubious whoring out appearances on American Idol, numerous dodgy talk shows, and any other pop culture totem he can hitch his wagon to.<p>Death Proof really was boring as fuck. I enjoyed it somewhat the first time, but I saw it again and its excruciating to sit through parts of it. The problem with Tarantino sometimes is that his stuff isn't nearly as 'cool' as he thinks it his.Worst of all, Tarantino has become so self-indulgent that he not only cannibalises other movies, but even endlessly self-references himself, vis a vis kill bill ring tones, foot fetish shots, the car in death proof having the same colour scheme as Uma's yellow outfit, etc. He makes movies about other movies about other movies, and the chain of endless cinematic allusions leads only one way. To quote James Brown: "He's talkin' loud and sayin' nothing."<p>It sounds like I'm down on the guy but he can be great when he gets the finger out: not just Dogs and Pulp, but Jackie Brown was actually exceptional and very mature. Kill Bill was good and could have been great if he'd had greater discipline and hadn't lessened its impact by cutting it into two halves that don't really hang together. As for Inglorious Bastards (I refuse to mis-pell it - more ludricous and obscure self-indulgence), I've read it, dyslexic grammar and spelling and all. It's a good script, not great, but definitely NOT what we were led to believe all these years. And the casting is fucking woeful. Eli Roth and Mike Meyers and some bloke from The Office. Thank God he didn't get Simon Pegg. Where are all the great character actors who could be used, and would probably beg for a job? Tarantino used to cast them; now he just casts his drinking buddies. The trailer looks like something out of Monty Python or that cheesy old British sit-com 'Allo, 'Allo. In short, it could be entertaining, but it will have to go a long way to capturing the sharpness of Pulp, or the maturity of Jackie Brown. If Tarantino thinks this is his masterpiece, then its a sure sign it probably won't be. Nobody thinks they're working on a masterpiece at the time. Even Coppola though The Godfather would be a bomb.

  • May 1, 2009, 6:48 p.m. CST


    by WeLiveStill...OrNot

    Not liking a film is VERY different than acually seeing a BAD film. Tarantino is a damn good film maker. You don't like his films, fair enough. But don't crap on his abilities behind the lens.

  • May 1, 2009, 6:50 p.m. CST

    hegele, I'm forgiving of Directors who are more prolific....

    by ReturnoftheCreepyThinMan

    That’s because they just get out there and DO IT. Jess Franco, Joe D’amato and Takashi Miike might not always make great movies, Hell, most of the time their stuff might be shit but it’s the effort that I admire and I think it’s a lot more interesting then someone like QT or Kubrick that only makes something once in a while not to mention that you inevitably feel burned when after waiting all that time you end up with an Eyes Wide Shut or a Death Proof that didn’t warrant all the hype not to mention the time, money and resources that were spent on those movies.

  • May 1, 2009, 6:52 p.m. CST

    i was the biggest pulp fiction fan


    in high school. i got all my friends to see it who had no idea what it was. i've seen it so many times i can't even watch it any more. but from that, i have learned two things: <P>1) it was quentin's best work and one deserving hit. reservoir dogs not included because that was more indie and really didn't get well known until the success of fiction. but even both of them were inspired by asian gangster flicks he watched while working at a video store.<P>and 2) that pulp fiction would be a fairly mediocre (but with interesting teases of characters) movie if it was played in its natural order. (same could be said of memento). what made pulp fiction so unique at the time and gave it its strength was the out-of-order stories. which we then gave quentin the too much credit of 'interweaving'. i would bet dollars to donuts that they watched the first cut of the film and it wasn't working. then some guy in editing had the idea to mix it up. and quentin shrieked- it's genius! i 'm so glad i thought of it! and the result was good. <P>years later, quentin tries it PURPOSELY with kill bill, and i'm sorry lovers, but kill bill was the most unecessarily drawn out 5 hours of my life. the out of order stories served no real purpose other than to fit tarantino's now expected method. the long pauses and silences in P F had purpose and seemed off the cuff. the ons in K B were done so intentionally it was excruciating.

    Can make the line work.

    I enjoyed it, tremendously. The problem with Tarantino haters here is that MOST of them feel that they are as pop culturally savvy as he is, believing that they could throw together the same obscure references from pop culture folklore and produce the same results. Problem is these people don't know what the difference between a tilt or a pan is and, instead of trying to go out and cultivate their passion, they sit on message boards and bitch about how opportunity hasn't fallen in their lap yet. Pathetic.

    Jackie Brown soundtrack

    by seppukudkurosawa

    It's all about Bloodstone's Natural High for me. When that song starts playing as Jackie walks out of stir, that's one of those transcendental moments of music and images meshing together and making magic. I wish he'd used the original Shuggie Otis version of Strawberry Letter 23 though instead of the Brothers Johnsons', which sucked all the life out of one of the 70s' most beautiful songs.

    Blood under the bridge, I know, but...I fucking love zombie movies, however, Rodriguez was too manga-licious with the shit he was laying down, like with the machine gun leg and all - kinda gimmicky. On the other hand, Death Proof was a pretty fucking cool concept - Kurt Russel rocks in that movie! Too bad Tarantino loves to hear women talk so much - he should have edited a lot of that bitch banter the fuck outta there. Oh yeah, Bad Shit should ease up on the autoerotic asphyxiation.

    Kurt Russell Almost saved Death Proof


    The first half of the movie rocked, and then in the second half we get 4 annoying bitched that actually made me root for Kurt Russell. The moral of the sotry is less annoying botches, more kurt russell.

  • Whatever - who gives a fuck about a coherent story when Brad Pitt is probably doing his best work since Snatch (sorry, gay dudes, Legends of the Fall just didn't get my dick up) and some dude, or bitch (I honetly cant tell) is tearing through some German castle with a minigun - Looks like fun. If you dont like it, make your own fucking movie. And to Manzilla - yes Kurt Russell was the best thing to happen to those sorry cunts. Still, I'd suck on a Rosario-shit lollipop to get a crack at that pussy. Y'all play nice now.

    Death Proof great?

    by Continentalop

    Ok, you might have liked it and I am not going to criticize you for that, but I can think of a couple of things wrong with it: <p> 1) it is supposedly based on exploitation films but QT has them doing something no grindhouse filmmaker would ever do, and with good reason - talk for 30-40 minutes in a row! I mean whatever momentum you have is now just lost. <p> 2) And as for the dialogue - talk about really, really bad dialogue. I mean this stuff is pointless and embarrassingly bad, IMO. The entire scene of the girl demonstrating how someone will approach her and call her butterfly and then she has to give him a lap dance, man was that forced and awkward. And that is just one of the scenes like that - you have like 5-6 dialogue scenes in there like that. <p> 3) And because of the bad dialogue scenes and the stupid actions of the characters, he has you hating the protagonist. I wanted Stuntman Mike to kill them all - gruesomely - for being so boring and stupid. <p. 4) Plus, it is QT's twist of the slasher genre, and he only has two "murder scenes" and one really long chase scene? Sorry, while I love it when people play with people's expectations, sometimes you have to at least try to deliver what you promised you would (remember they are labeling this a 'grindhouse' movie, not My Car Chase with Andre). <p> Shit, I could go on and on and on listing the problems I had with the movie. I will admit it had it's great moments (I mean the line that Kurt delivers about how he wishes she had said to take a right was just fucking awesome; and the multi-views of the girls dying was very clever as well), overall the film is the perfect antidote for insomnia.

    by alucardvsdracula

    Res Dogs was the mutts bollocks back in '92. Ditto the iconic Pulp Fiction. Jackie Brown was very, very well made, but lacked punch. Kill Bill was way, way, way overlong, but had moments. Ever since then he's been treading water and Death Proof was pretty dismal. We'll see in a few weeks if the chin is finished or not, cause if Basterds sucks then his career will be straight to DVD.

    The problem with Tarantino is...

    by ChuckImania

    That there is only one of him... If possible I'd like to see him become asexual, fuck himself, and produce miniature baby Tarantino's that would go on to write a trillion movies like death proof rather than force feed me a regurgitated Star Trek. To the guy that claims QT is more of a hobbyist than an actual director. Fuck yourself, and do it in the way that ensures you'd receive absolutely no sexual gratification; masturbation with 80 grit sandpaper will suffice. Furthermore, fuck the guy that brought the Geneva convention. It's a movie; how boring would it be if John Rambo asked the United Nations for permission to invade a country? Also, I don't need a guy to tell me what I liked and didn't like about a movie. The assumption all grind house directors stick to an uncompromising formula. Grindhouse wasn't even like a true grindhouse film, all it just seemed like a movie that paid hommage to the genre. Which is fine by me considering most people would have walked out of an actual grindhouse movie. Apologies in advance for coming off so harsh but it just irritates the fuck out of me when people say QT lost a step because not every movie he does feels like a Pulp Fiction or a Reservoir Dogs. The man tries his best to keep his films unique and fresh; like or dislike his work you'd think that people, especially the film buffs on Aint It Cool talk backs would appreciate that and not berate him as being a hobbyist.

    Does anyone know if The expendables was made as a direct response to this film? <P> I remember watching an interview ages ago, where someone (maybe Stallone or Willis, or someone, I don't remember), was questioned about this mythical Tarantino film idea, back when it was a rumour & the media were saying it would have all the old 80's action stars in it. <p> I just wonder if it planted a seed?

  • May 2, 2009, 9:44 a.m. CST

    was the best. Why? Simply put 80 perent of the movie takes place in one room. It's just a bunch of guys acting, and it's the pure dialogue that carries the movie. No explosions, no CGI, little fighting, but just enough. It's the pure script, and great acting that carries this.

    by cant_stop_yawning

    around half the elitist bitches on this board. Personally I dig the teaser trailer, dig the first round of posters (very cool), dig thee concept and think QT and Pitt look like they are having fun with this one. One thing I've liked about that guy - he really seems to enjoy himself when he's making movies. Like I said earlier, I could use some morally directed ultra-violence as well (sick torture porn like Saw, Hostel, but if it's nazis...well). Anyone recall the scene in Fight Club where Pitt get's the shit beat out of his, laughing the entire time? Or the brawls in Snatch? The guy can bring it. And give it a rest with the QT analysis - so fucking tiresome. By the way - expendibles will suck, just like everything else Stallone's been involved in for the last 60 years. I don't even know why its up for discussion.

    The Whole Spelling Thing

    by JumpinJehosaphat

    My guess is one of two things: 1) The reasoning behind the particular spelling will be put in context during the film itself. 2) It's merely marketing designed to make you think longer about the product than you would if it were spelled correctly.

Sadly, QT missed the best thing about those Chopsocky films...they were short and sweet. KB had far to many key characters, far too much "fleshing out" just too much BS. In traditional Hong Kong cinema you had a wronged good guy, a bad guy, a few basically faceless, no backstory minions and thats it...1.2-1.5 hours of action and basic story moving elements...thats it.</p><p>Now I am hearing IB is coming in at 150 minutes plus, and he isn't done yet!

    by The Final Word

    Continentalop who said: "no grindhouse filmmaker would ever do, and with good reason - talk for 30-40 minutes in a row!" Have you ever even seen a grindhouse movie? Most of them DID have that much talking because of piss weak budgets. On top of that most of them didn't even have a decent payoff like Death Proof had. God damn you are stupid. "Grindhouse filmaker"? Its not like a director would sit down and say "I'm gonna make a grindhouse film!" That term was used for the theatres pumping them out.

    The Final Word

    by Continentalop

    You are right The Final Word. There are plenty of grindhouse films where people talk and talk and talk. I meant to say "exploitation" film, especially one dealing with the Slasher and Car genres. In those films do they rarely bog down the action by having 30 minutes of dialogue. <p> The other funny thing is that I actually said something similar about the fact that no one sets out to make a grindhouse movie. If you go back and read some of the TB about Rob Zombie you might see my comments. <p>But the fact is that I don't see films like The Vanishing Point, White Line Fever, The Hearse, and a bunch of other films having that much talking. <p> My only question is why would someone get so outraged over my statements? I mean, I do admit I misspoke but it is not like I said something racist or made a joke about someone's death, or stated a completely blatant lie. Your reaction is kind of overkill, don't you think?

Is there another movie that does this? <p> Every other action movie I've seen has killing as a necessary evil, not something to glorify in or enjoy.<p> Even in Saving Private Ryan, for example, the shots of German prisoners being executed were accompanied by the revulsion of newbie soldiers (reflecting the presumed moral compass of the audience).<p> QT seems to be all out of ideas and is now going for shock value only.

    Time to Gird for Hate, Megan

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    Actress Megan Fox has laughed off rumours she is to portray comic book heroine Wonder Woman in a movie - vowing never to play such a "lame" character. Director Joss Whedon is rumoured to be putting together a cast for an upcoming big screen outing for the superhero siren, originally played by Lynda Carter in the 1970s TV show. Fox is reportedly in the running to play the lead role, but the Transformer star is adamant she will not get involved with the comic book adaptation. She tells British magazine FHM, "She's lame. She flies around in an invisible jet, but she's not invisible. I don't get it."

    Tarantino's movies are bad because:

    by IForgotAbout19

    1) He is influenced by earlier films? 2) In interviews/panels he admits to being proud of his own work? 3) Only his earlier movies were good (Or whichever ones the least people have already endorsed)? 4) He's a girl? 5) Death Proof didn't have enough...? 6) He decided Kill Bill should be two movies (with one being action-based, and the second plot-based)? You all are so goddamn stale and corny.

    Tarantino's movies are usually good; THIS movie sounds bad

    by Frisco

    Get it straight, fellow geeks. A Dirty Dozen-style movie as done by Tarantino would have been pretty sweet, but that's not what this looks like it's going to be. I haven't read the leaked script (wouldn't want Harry and Drew to call for me to get shitcanned at my work), so that's just based on teasers and hear-say. I'm certainly willing to give it a chance based on Tarantino's past work, though.

    People complaining about the 150 minute running time

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    While Tarantino likes to let his movies "breathe" (sometimes too much), the majority of those "guys on a mission" WWII flicks from the 60's and 70's that Tarantino is referencing here usually ran between 2 1/2 to 3 hours, so he's just following the old taditions. While both volumes of Kill Kill could have been trimmed to a hyperactive 100 minutes total, I liked how both halves had a completely different tone from each other, and as such, they didn't feel like the "one big movie cut in half" crap like the Matrix and POTC sequels did.

  • May 2, 2009, 11:57 p.m. CST

    Those who are complaining about this flick now...

    by cant_stop_yawning

    Are sad and weak. I am seriously looking forward to this - take a step back and reconsider your bias - who gives a shit about what you think about Jackie Brown or Death Proof. Not only does this look fun, but timely - e.g. Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.

  • May 3, 2009, 12:29 a.m. CST


    by The Final Word

    Based on your first post alone plus with my personal experience with exploitation movies I don't think it was overkill. See I was too young to experience grindhouse theatres but old enough to get a healthy dose of video rental stores before blockbuster existed, and mom gave me free reign. I'd usually find myself in the horror section and more often then not my rental choice would turn out to be a boring dud of a movie. Wow did I pick some doozys. And I sat through them all for no other reason other then I picked it out. I'd even try to convince myself they were good out of pride. So for me boringness/chatter is a staple of exploitation movies. Death Proof really captured that feeling. In retrospect QT as some huge balls for pacing it like those old crappy flicks. Where he f'd up was actually talking about the movies he's paying homage to, while paying homage to himself! It took me right out of the movie, and I never even followed the car genre of B movies. So for me to pick up on that shows that it was dumb writing. So reading your post struck a nerve in me in just that right way. but hearing your reply and reading mine again makes me think maybe it was overkill, sorry. I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive my abrasive attitude. On topic I'm not too excited about Inglorious Basterds mainly because the subject matter and maybe the casting. I'll still see it though because QT usually has some sort of excitement to his films and my friends will want to see it.

    The problem with the KILL BILL...

    by caruso_stalker217

    It's like this. In the first one it's all this over the top cartoon extravaganza with Uma trying to act like a badass and it's all real fun and an Asian dude who looks like Charlie Brown and so forth. Then in VOL. 2 they tried to make like Uma is a real human being with feelings and stuff. Which is complete horseshit. You look at the Pai Mei stuff and for some reason Uma is this bright-eyed chick lady who looks like she hasn't even stepped foot outside the States, like she's just some ho Bill picked up on the side of the road and we're supposed to believe this girl child wants to be a badass martial arts murder machine? I don't buy it. It is complete bullshit. And then you see that she actually has some combative skills when she fights Pai Mei and it's like "Has she even killed anybody? I don't even believe she's ever been in a fight." Nonsense. Don't piss in my ear and tell me it's raining, movie. So in VOL. 1 Uma is the unstoppable killing robot woman and then I'm supposed to give a shit when she sees her daughter and cries? Fuck you. <p>For the record, though, I enjoy the KILL BILLs. They get a little more annoying each time I watch them, but by themselves they're pretty entertaining. I mean you've got Madsen, he's in VOL. 2. Forget about it. The guy deserved a Best Supporting Oscar nod for that stuff. The guy was fantastic. I cared more about him than the goddamn Uma, understand?

    DP= Tarantino's failed ode to Tarantino

    by Flip63Hole

    It was a shit story shitilly told. The best scene was the lapdance and the first crash scene with Rose. The rest was pointless and dare I say, retarded. It wasn't eerie, funny, thrilling, exciting or anything. At least Rodriguez gave me a good time at the theater. If this is more QT dickin' around and strokin' himself I'll be very disappointed. And where the fuck is the final Kill Bill edit?

  • May 3, 2009, 7:42 a.m. CST

    Explanation of the spelling.

    by lutz

    When Tarantino worked in the video store people kept asking for Inglorious Bastards and he would do a search on the computer to see if they had it and it wasn't there. He asked his boss to buy a copy and he refused because they already had a copy in the store. Tarantino spent four days looking for it and found it in a case with no cover and it was marked "Inglourious Basterds" which is why it didn't show up on the computer. So the title is a homage to his four day search.

    That's cool, re: the spelling. And as far as people whining about how long he takes between movies: not many directors direct only their own scripts. It takes a long time to make it good enough. And for those kvetching that Pulp Fiction and others were better than the more recent movies: A) you can't knock it out of the ballpark on every swing and B) quit kvetching that it's taking him so long.
