Tarantino's Music To Kill Nazis By... aka INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS soundtrack listing!!!

Published at: May 15, 2009, 5:06 a.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here - This story has me giddy. I always love reading the soundtrack listings for Tarantino's films since he scores pretty much exclusively via "sourced music" ie - pre-existing music. But as much as I like Quentin's films - I LOVE the music he puts together - it's the candy! A source at Cannes that found the pdf file for the credits on INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS sent over the track listings. I'm dying to see how and where Green Leaves of Summer plays. Here ya go:

Hi Harry, I dunno if you'd seen this or not or if it's news or not, but on the Cannes website, they have a presskit in French. However, the last page is the entire "setlist" for the soundtrack. I know ya'll posted soundtrack info for "Death Proof" when it was released. Anyways, just thought you'd like to know. Lots of Spaghetti Western stuff, and David Bowie and the theme to Slaughter by Bill Preston and a song from The Alamo. The Green Leaves of Summer (d’après le film ALAMO) De Dimitri Tiomkin, The Verdict (Dopo la condanna) D’Ennio Morricone Interprété par Ennio Morricone L’incontro con la figlia D’Ennio Morricone White Lightning (Chanson principale du film LES BOOTLEGGERS) De Charles Bernstein Interprété par Charles Bernstein Il mercenario (ripresa) D’Ennio Morricone Interprété par Ennio Morricone Slaughter De Billy Preston Interprété par Billy Preston Algeri: 1 novembre 1954 (LA BATAILLE D’ALGER) D’Ennio Morricone,Gillo Pontecorvo Interprété par Ennio Morricone,Gillo Pontecorvo The Surrender ( La resa ) D’Ennio Morricone Interprété par Ennio Morricone One Silver Dollar (Un Dollaro Bucato) De Gianni Ferrio Bath Attack (d’après le film L’EMPRISE) (The Entity?)

    La Bataille d'Algier ... YES!

    by Ezella_Garnie

    I had always hoped that Tarantino would use Morricone's music from that film one day. "Davon geht die Welt nicht unter" and "Ich wollt ich wär ein Huhn" however are hackneyed clichés for German viewers (and are probably even known outside of Germany by now from some German movies where these songs were used).

    "talentless hack"? Hack yes, but not talentless

    by Continentalop

    I don't think Tarantino is "talentless" Kizeesh. Far from it. Unfortunately, that is why his latest movies infuriate me so often - this incredibly talented filmmaker who can only make overindulgent hipster flicks instead of something real or genuine.

    He's no hack/one trick pony BUT

    by The Dark Shite

    The quality of his films has really gone downhill. He's far too self-indulgent these days. <p> Think back to Pulp Fiction. I walked out of that film buzzing at what I'd just seen. It's easy to forget just how innovative it was back then. I felt like I was seeing something truly fresh & groundbreaking. <p> In my opinion, everything since then has been at best "well made" (Jackie Brown)& at worst, cliched, half-hearted shit. You could even call them paraodies to a certain extent.

    by hegele

    What does the condiment and this movie have in common? About as much as The Expendables and Inglourious Basterds have in common. Jesus Christ people get a new retort. I'm looking forward to this, the script was wonderful, cast looks great.

  • well again he will explain its artsy fartsy etc thing...like once he promised 2 do a badass movie with a badass cast, like sly, arnie, bruce etc and then came up with this pussy cast as like: pitt, roth, myers, schweiger, brühl etc because he changed the script in reason of he wants it 2 be more artsy fartsy...FUKK YOU TARANTINO u stupid hack, u liar one trick pony!

  • and thats why his last 3 movie sukked ass. the reason behind all these movies was he wanted 2 get laid by talentless wanna be actresses and thats it. look at the stories about the last 3 movies. 2 were about this uma and her feet and her ass and "deathproof" was just about ass and feet and the only good thing was kurt and he fukked snake up really bad by chicks everyone hated.

    muri71, you idiot...

    by hegele

    Tarantino never said he wanted Sly, Arny and Willis for IB. That was a rumor that started years ago. Tarantino confirmed he never considered them when he as doing press for Death Proof http://in.movies.yahoo.com/news-detail/8717/Willis-Schwarzenegger-Stallone-star-in-Tarantinos-Inglorious-Bastards.html And the cast for the basterds now is important to the themes of propaganda in the film. To the nazi's, the basterds might as well be Sly, Arny and Willis, that's what the fear of the group did to them, when in reality, they are mostly a bunch of jewish kids. The fact that you use the term 'artsy fartsy' only makes you look more thick.

    Quentin Tarantino worked on the script for almost a decade. (at some point it was and should be about the action icon badasses) ----------------------------------- reason 1.Michael Madsen was originally announced to star as a character named Babe Buchinsky. (for over 2 years he was listet at imdb and then tarantino changed the script after shooting "deathproof" to a bunch of jews, so badass thing didnt worked out anymore) --------------------------------- resaon 2.British actor Simon Pegg was originally set to play Lt. Archie Hicox but was forced to pull out of the project because of scheduling conflicts. Michael Fassbender replaced him. (he really doesnt fit into my jewish guy...what about you?) ---------------------------------- The name of Brad Pitt's character, Lt. Aldo Raine, is a homage to actor Aldo Ray. (aint in my jewish book of look;) ---------------------------------- According to Eddie Murphy, he was in talks with Tarantino for a role in the film. ( really in NO WAY JEWISH) ------------------------------ i didnt offend any talkbacker her if u are tarantino himself, then FUCK YOU! otherwise dont call me anything...when all you know is not really... something!

    you don't seem to understand what words mean...

    by hegele

    "mostly" being the keyword, and I don't follow what your reasons are for either... are they reasons it should have been about action icon badasses? simon pegg is more badass than michael Fassbender is a point? He had a change of heart and wrote a character out of a script? what are you saying? If you read the draft that hit online you'd know it isn't about action and badasses, its more about propaganda and suspense.

  • May 15, 2009, 7:39 a.m. CST

    my point is...

    by muri71

    that tarantina himself started that rumor, that he wants 2 make a badass movie with some action icons like sly, arnie & willis and now he gives us this shitty cast with pitt, roth, myers, schweiger etc because he changed the script in the favour of make it more "realistic" and "artistic" yeah right, cus jews fought the war on their own, killed hitler and won it, right?!;) so there is no point about this cast and no excuse in way to make it more "realistic" cus this movie isnt all about realism! its a freaking movie about something that didnt happend in that kind of way! so their shouldnt be any reason why you protect this...with talks about "well jews were send to war then..."! well all kind of races were send to war then. what could go wrong if sly, arnie and willis would have been some captains or whatever? at least believeable leader/badass compared to some freaky lip kind of talk from pitt, who looks just ridiculous trying to be badass. if u would fight in a war i guess you would follow a real badass more than this hairy poster boy pitt! another point is, that tarantina is a liar he really talked some years about this project and what it should become and changed it all in favour so that he could cast some more women into this thing, because he needs more foot and ass shots. as far as i can tell...somehow melanie laurent is one of the leads in this movie, get my point?! in no way diane kruger deserves screen time, she has no talent, never had and has an ugly voice!!!! why would anyone cast her, if tarantino wouldnt try to get into her pants? if he is what some of you guys say, then he would know she cant act shit!

    A Talentless hack...... not far off

    by Kizeesh

    Ok what has QT actually done? One good script for True Romance. One good script of a serial-killer/vampire movie and a mediocre retread of Badlands. <p>His first directed movie was a scene by scene remake of City on Fire which he then passed off as his own work. Which makes him a plaguerising cunt.<p> Then an overrated gangster film which is enjoyable but not the new Mecca people pretend it is.<p> A blaxploitation Elmore Leonard wannabe film that was dull as ditchwater and no amount of A-list cameos could save it.<p> Then a 4 hour b-movie wank-fest that is painfully boring and stupid. <p> Then he makes a high budget, student movie with his best mate Rodruigez. And it was bollocks as well, a fast car and Kurt Russell doesn't make up for 10 minute monologues of retarded "cool chat"<p> Now he's re-making another exploitation movie, that was in itself a rip-off of the Dirty Dozen.<p> The man is a talentless dweeb who doesn't deserve a penny of my money as he's barely had an original thought in his life. He's got 3 fucking scripts under his belt that were decent and a couple of movie that are watchable without wanting to scratch my own eyes out.<p> No I return to my previous assertation. Talentless Hack.

    by hegele

    do you know tarantino started that rumor? He has been vocal about being a fan of Sly and Arny, he already casted Willis before, we all knew he was making a dirty dozen kind of film. the assumption that it the cast he wanted could have been guessed by anyone. You say "cus jews fought the war on their own, killed hitler and won it, right?!;)" and well, ahem, you don't know much about this film, do you? Because it is not based on anything that happened, and it doesn't try to fit in between the lines of historical accuracy, on the contrary, it becomes a piece of propaganda in its own right. Besides, WW2 was won by regular people, not just Rambo's and Terminators. The term badass you love to use is applicable to a film like the expendables, not so much this movie. You also go on about Tarantino being a liar because he, as you put it, "took changed it all in favour so that he could cast some more women into this thing, because he needs more foot and ass shots." First, the main character is a woman, and you are making the assumption that he should not expand his film in the years of its development. which is ridiculous.

    COME ON!!!

    by THE TRUE PINBACK

    I can understand his using "existing music" cues for his other films, but I'm afraid that using it in this one is going to be a BAD mistake. This is the kind of film that deserves an original score. Using all of this pre-existing music is just going to be distracting. This looks more like a temp-track list. This doesn't make me NOT want to see the film, but for someone like me who is very familiar with film music, this is going to be a BIG minus. I want to be absorbed by the film-and its music-not taken away by thoughts of "oh, that music is from a different film from several decades ago. Oh, and David Bowie music in a WWII action pic...what the fuck is THAT all about?!?!? C'mon Quentin, pull your head out of your ass and quit relying on old tricks. You're better than that.

    Those were the days

    by one_guy_from_andromeda

    True Romance, Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction - these movies where mind blowing back then. <p>When he made Jackie Brown it seemed he would get artier and more stylish with time, but then something happened in the huge brack between Jackie and Kill Bill - for some reason Tarantino movies don't have this surefire style they had anymore. Kill Bill 2 was just boring, both movies were kind of silly, but he said "It's what Vince Vega would watch" so i thought it was kind of an in joke and he would go back to make serious movies again. But no, he stayed in silly exploitation mode. <p>Death Proof was silly and not very exciting, and everything i have seen of Basterds so far looks just... bland. What happened to you Mister Tarantino?

    This Film Is Racist Towards Nazis

    Hopeful

    by Cobbio

    I think this film will be way better than people think. The WWII premise is a huge departure for QT, and I'm thinking the story will be pretty creative and intense. It's not just a Nazi-killing movie, either, though that's a big chunk of it -- it's also alt-history. I'm really interested to see where it goes.<p> Color me hopeful.

    Nazis again? *groan*

    by CaptainAxis

    I am officially sick of movies revolving around WWII, Nazis, Jews, and the holocaust. It just seems so lazy because Nazis don't require any character development - they're Nazis, so they're evil and it's okay to cheer while they're being tortured, maimed, and killed. I saw the trailer five times with each viewing of Watchmen, and it's disturbing to hear Brad Pitt's character refer to the Germans (and he does say "Germans" rather than "Nazis" a couple of times) as subhuman, etc. when he and the "Basterds" are presented as the heroes of the film. If the underlying message of the movie is something about how we all have the capability to be inhuman monsters, including Jews, and that "evil" is not applicable only to Nazis, I wouldn't have a problem with it. But from the trailer it looks like it's just treating it as a joke, and that we're supposed to smile and grin along with Eli Roth at the mere thought of slaughtering Germans. Sneaky way of avoiding the "torture porn" label. I'd much rather see Werewolf Women of the SS.

    and yes it is a sports thing. u cant support 2 teams, you can only be in one and only root for one, this is how sport work! between this shit and "the expendables" i prefer the badass version and give my money to someone who actually listens to fans instead of this "once had talent" guy, who gets everything he wants from the studios! while more talented movie makers like sly had to work harder for it! anyway sly will deliver the goods while quentin will deliver a chick movie with a leading chick lady and we know how those stories of quentin work out...watch j.brown, kill bill and deathproof = SHIT FESTS! man i was pissed when i came out of the cinema after watching "deathproof"...i was really pissed at those anoying chicks who kicked kurts butt and then i realized it aint the fault of the chicks. tehy didnt wrote the script they had to be that way and they had to kick snakes ass ( who was the only good thing) after that i realized man it was the same in kill bill. madsen was the best thing in this shit and he was fukked up 2! after i realized that, i said to myself i`ll give quentin another last try. then i read who he had cast: eli roth, til schweiger, diane kruger, m. myers, daniel brühl and i was like...i`m done with quentin. some month later...i gave the trailer a try out of curiosity and after that it was clear (WHILE I WAS LAUGHING MY ASS OFF HOW CHEAP AND SILLY AND AMATEUR LIKE IT WAS DONE). quentin simply was and is a one trick pony...after and before, that he only made remake and reboots, or stealing whole stuff from other movies etc. everybody who thinks this movie will be any good AND ITS DONE IN GERMANY (there is no us production done in germany that is any good at all...remember SPEED RACER;)has really no idea of good movies or of talent.

I've read it so much here that its starting to sound like a cover up for your secret homosexuality, emphasizing on how big of a man you are. Shut up. Expendables will be like 'Rambo': okay but not that great. 'Expendables' wont be able to even TOUCH Tarantino's work of this film. The soundtrack will be great for this film WHEN WE HEAR IT USED! Don't criticize something you haven't even heard or seen yet. That Bowie song will most likely be used brilliantly in the film, like most of the music choices he makes for his films. All the Tarantino haters can suck huge fat camel dick, you know, because they're 'real men' and all.

    Quentin is a hipster, PW Bush.

    by Continentalop

    The term hipster is used, sometimes in contradictory ways, to describe types of middle-class males with interest in non-mainstream fashion, culture, films, etc. They approptiate other generations and groups movements and cultures and these aesthetics are assimilated (actually cannibalized) into a repertoire of meaninglessness, from which the hipster can construct any identity or meaning they wish. Hence a hipster can apathetically plunder from another, often marginalized sector of society like Black America, and get all the the funky otherness of their culture without all the scary black people or history of pain and suffering that goes with it. <p> Of course, the whole point of hipsters is that they avoid labels and being labeled – a hipster will never acknowledge he is a hipster. However, their search for non-conformity reduces their lifestyle to a pose, a pretense which involves always trying to appear "cool.” Of course, as the Cool never try to be cool, the internal contradictions of Hipsterdom are exposed. <p> Which brings us back to QT and Inglorious Basterds. Quentin’s only references in life seems to be other movies and pop culture and he has no concept that there is an actual world out there and that some people might have actually a different viewpoint of what war is. Never mind that he is making a movie that takes place during a historical event and ignoring the historical facts, he is also making a war movie that does not care to be accurate at all about war and conflict during a time when we have actual men and women fighting overseas (of course, what do you expect from a man who once compared 9-11 to a film he saw and said he didn’t see the big deal). <p> For QT doesn’t want to show any sort of reality about war, he just wants to show the “cool” stuff he saw in other movies. Nor does he want to actual explore any real themes that might be perplexing us such as is it alright to torture or can you have rules during war? I am sure he will give a passing mention to such themes as a cover and defense against his critics (“see, he brought that up”) without really delving into those areas because such deep thoughts would be a distraction from the the “cool” moments. The ideas of sacrifice, loss of your soul, compassion and humanity in a inhuman world is just not as sexy for QT as showing guys kill and butcher people with baseball bats.

    A lot of hate here for Cokey....

    by TurdontheRun

    and a good percentage of it is more than a little unfair.<p>The thing about Tarantino is that he uses genre conventions, and combines them in interesting ways, in opposing juxtapositions, so that you get a new perspective on them. It simply isn't just a matter of ripping off shit and throwing it into a blender (as for the persistent myth that all he did for Reservoir Dogs was rip off City on Fire scene by scene, any one who's actually seen it knows it is by no means a play by play remake. Some of you fuckers just believe everything you've read somewhere. It's just like the myth that Star Wars was a straight rip of the Hidden Fortress).<p>I read the script; I liked it, I wasn't utterly enamoured by it. But the guy above who posted that this movie is all about propaganda, is bang on - the casting of wimpy Jewish kids is very deliberate, even though I'm sure that we all would rather have seen Sly, Arnie, Bruce, etc. The film is all about propaganda - and this extends to the 'morally justified' slaughter of the Nazis as well, that we the audience will be expected to applaud - a meta-text if you will. This is where Tarantino is at his best - when the fact that he makes surface level movies about other movies becomes an asset to the them of the film. Ditto Pulp Fiction - which was a post-modern movie ABOUT surface - thus rendering criticisms that it had no real emotional core utterly moot.<p>As for politically correct claims, such as from Contintalop above) that this movie is negative because it does not show the reality of war - well, so fucking what? Inglourious Basterds will be a pulp comic book. There are plenty of earnest, serious takes on war and human suffering if you want that. I like to think people are intelligent enough to decipher what's to be taken serious and what's slightly tongue-in-cheek. And by no means do I have any love for smug hipsterism. All events or human emotions can be depicted in any way you choose. I can't be botheed with idiot claims like that one by Michael Haenke (sic) where he said violence must alway be presented as serious. Its nonsense-film is an entirely subjective experience.<p>Anyway, Tarantino is 4 for 5 with me (I didn't much care for Death Proof. Jackie Brown and Pulp are terrific movies. I care less for Dogs and Kill Bill but still enjoyed them. True Romance (and his original script for NBK) were great. He is no hack (some of you really need to learn what that word really means). He IS a cokehead, borderline illiterate, and his appearances on crap like American Idol does him few favours, but he is absolutely an idiot savant. I'm hoping he knocks it out of the park with Basterds. At least he isn't trying to shill us Inglourious Basterds pizzas like that car salesman, McG (a TRUE hack).

    Bowie and Morricone... another great soundtrack. Bowie is God, b

    by Chariowalda_Barbarossa

    We know QT is quite talentd when it comes to picking his soundtracks. Cat People in a WW2 movie? Can only be a good idea. <p> There's only a few contemporary musicians I call myself a fan of. Actually there are only 3. And on top of that list is Bowie. Have you ever been to a Bowie concert? If ever again the opportunity should arise, if we get another album and tour from David, that is, you must not let that opportunity pass by. Too bad I discovered Bowie only in '96, just a few months to late to catch a great Tour. Anyway, I've been to a couple of great shows since then.<p> July 2002, Cologne. The Heathen tour which more than made up for the somewhat weaker "hours..." Album a few years earlier. After what had allready been a great concert of some 20 songs, most of the new album which the fans really liked and some greatest hits stuff, Bowie announced they'd play the complete 1977 "Low" album as an encore.<p> Now you have to know, many Bowie fans consider that one to be his best album ever. It's not as easily accessible as the early 70's glam rock classics, the b-side of the album consits of mostly electronic instrumentals, collaboration with Brian Eno, the lyrics of thet a-side songs are reduced, bioled down to the essentials, compared to earlier albums. We sometimes call it neoexpressionism. Suffice to say, up to that point I just didnt get it. Didn't dislike the album but didn't count it anywhere near my favorites either. <p> But that night in 2002 it hit me like the hammer of god. The exhaustion of a rock concert, that certain atmosphere, and then that music. It was... elevating. A revelation. I was blind but now i can see. Now whenever the topic comes up I wholeheartedly agree with many Bowie fans, the enlightened ones, you know, that "Low" definitely is Bowie's best album. <p> I've had my share of concerts, not only Bowie ones, and I'm sure there's many more good ones further down the road, but I think its unlike that anything will ever surpass that night in 2002, when to our great surprise they played an entire, decades old album. As an encore. And I finally got it.<p> What where we talking about? Ah, yes, Cat People in Inglorious Basterds. Nice song, I like it. Will surely fit in nicely. One of the very few good things about the 80s. We enlightened ones consider the 80s Bowie's weakest decade, his greatest commercial successes marking his artistic all time low.<p> And Morricone, I wanted to say something about that, too. His music was the best in the Kill Bill score, the piece played when Bride escapes from her coffin marking my favorite musical moment in all of QT's films. It was just such a great payoff moment to the build up from the cruel tutelage of Pai Mei.<p> So this new soundtrack listing is very reasssuring to me, Basterds is something to look forward to.<p> Now don't you dare accusing me of wasting your precious time with my sentimental memories.

    Awesome

    by WilliamZabkaRox

    I find all the bashing of Tatantino to be funny. People often call him a hack, he rips off others movies yet Tarantino ALWAYS gives credit. In interviews he always talks about how a certain movie influenced a scene or other parts of his work. Enzo G. Castellari, who directed the original Inglorious Bastards is friends with Tarantino. In fact, Castellari wanted Tatantino (along with Mickey Rourke) to appear in his next movie. I could understand if the people behind these originals that have inspired Tarantino are calling him a ripoff or hack but the fact is he's friends with most of them. Also, Tarantino has been a major force behind the re-releases of many great yet out of print movies, especially horror movies. Cannibal Holocaust was FINALLY given a proper release in the U.S. thanks to Tarantino's company. I can understand if people dislike his movies but Tarantino has almost always cited and given credit to his influences. It's not like his movies are scene for scene ripoffs. He throws in his influences here and there. George Lucas did the same thing with Star Wars and nobody called him a hack for it.

    i`m not a film student and tarantina sucks!

    by muri71

    comparing expendables with basterds has a reason, cus the cast of expendables (some of them) should have been the cast of basterds. but tarantina desided otherwise after rewriting the script to a more "artistic" movie. but this HACK was talking for years that he wanted 2 reboot mickey rourke and put some more badass guys like sly, arnie and bruce into it and michael madsen was listed as some babe bublinske (whatever) at imdb for over 2 years. so first it should be a badass action icon cast and now it is this shit cast with who? yeah: eli roth, myers, kruger, brühl and til schweige! IF ANYONE OUTTHERE THINKS TIL SCHWEIGER HAS DONE ONE GOOD MOVIE WERE HE ACTS GOOD IN HAS NO IDEA OF FILMMAKING/TALENT!!! name me one good movie with til schweiger and i tell u...you just dont have any clue! same goes out to diane kruger, ugly voice no talent etc. well i think a filmmaker who casts those untalented actors, cant be any kind of good! oh i forgot our LEADING LADY PITT, well we´ve seen in the trailer how he acts in this. this movie will be apeshit and doesnt need to be supported. between this shitfest and "the expendables" the choice is clear for everyone who knows what should have been supported and for those who dont, go watch "deathproof" again cus this is what u`ll get if u puy a ticket. dont complain afterwards will be too late then. please dont jump on the band wagon when "the expendables" comes out then its too late. u just cant root for mike tyson and holyfield...in the end someones gonna get hit and someones gonna hit the floor and it wont be "the expendables"!:)

    by muri71

    it will only be because of he made the movie for the deadline of cannes! so he gets a little bit french love there first. he was a jury member once and they like him there, only of that reason. basterds could be the shawshank of all killing nazis people but if basterds wins anything it will only will be because quentin has a name, not becasue the movie is good!

    i bash at tarantina thats some of my main reasons. i liked him once, even i knew he never did something origin until today, like sorsese, coppola, scott, carpenter, stallone etc really we cant support his chick casts anymore. "deathproof" had what 6-7 leading ladies, they were all anoying and only one cool/good actor. basterds has 2 leading ladies melanie laurent and brad pitt i have no problem with them but the whole rest of the cast is just really not any kind of cast i would make any movie with and everybody who knows shit about the movies knwos that! til schweiger is the worst german "actor" around and in second place "daniel brühl" and worst "actress" of germany goes to "diane kruger". she was a model and not my type of model which is not a problem, but no talent, an ugly voice, she aint got shit.

    ...You're obviously an illiterate buffoon and outside the realm of consideration. Bottom line, people hate Tarantino out of jealousy. If you honestly dislike him for his movies, then you'd say "Well it'd be nice if Inglourious Basterds surprised me, but we'll see", not "I hope this movie sucks bad because I want Tarantino to fail on a personal level!" Outright bashing the guy without even giving IB a chance is just ugly, petty, sad, and reeks of jealousy. I dare anyone to sit through a marathon of Tarantino films and not laugh once. If you can't do it, and by the way, you can't, then you owe IB a chance and you owe QT a fair trial.

    I have similar problems with VOLUME 2. Tarantino spent an entire film showing Uma as this indestructible cartoon superhero... then spent another film trying to convince us she's a human being. Yeah, nice try. I still think Madsen is the best thing going on in that movie and it's a crime he wasn't nominated for best supporting actor.

    by Orbots Commander

    In fact his earlier gangster movies, Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, are fantastic and still re-watchable. I just became bored with his stuff because his movies became so repetitive in tone and theme. I mean, hell, even Spielberg went off and made Schindler's List, A.I. and Saving Private Ryan before going back and making gee-whiz popcorn movies (and he's the best there is, EVER, at those types of films). I think it'll take a director with a different take on a Tarantino screenplay to make it new and fresh again. Like I said before, I would be very interested to see what someone like Peter Berg or Michael Mann could do with a Tarantino-penned script. Hell, even Spielberg.

    @Cobra--Kai&Orbots&caruso...all right with their points!

    by muri71

    if you do believe it or not i was a fan of tarantino once! as fan its my right to say whats good and whats not so good and not to say that he only does great things! my whole point was that he lost it in favour of chick flicks, in favour of a so called artistic move about basterds, that he lost it casting wise etc. some people already said it before "pulp fiction" was his last full good movie and after that, it only got worse and worse. "jacky brown" was a homage to this untalented black chick. de niro was wasted and samuel was just samuel and the movie was just boring as hell! "kill bill" was a tribute to the shaw bother classics and the real reason was that quentin was obsessive about gettin into the pants of uma! to be honest this movie had moments and the best moment were owned by m.madsen! it was well made yeah, but parts were just boring ad everything was done in favour letting uma look great. i mean somany of you complain that another remake, reboot or reimagination comes out and another classic will be raped, well after "kill bill" i realized it the most, quentin never did anything original! i mean if i want to see a good photographed scene and someone already did it before, then i`ll watch "lady snowblood" or "naked weapon" etc i dont need the stolen version from quentin. about "deathproof" well this was my last try with quentin and after that shit fest i`m done with him. he fukked the only good thing up, it was kurt. if he is such a movie fan like he always says. no film fan would fukk up snake plissken by such annoying chicks, no guy cared shit about. stuntmen mike had 30 minutes to shine and than the chicks ruled the movie. i wish they would have been gang banged by some rednecks! he did now 3 movies about chicks "brown", "kill bill" and "deathproof" and they always won over the guys believable or not. well quentin is an ugly fella, i really think he uses this craft of making movie only to get to the ladies. i mean fisrt it was one lady for some short moments in "pulp". after that a whole movie for pam in "jacky". then 2 episodes/vol. in "kill" for uma. then a movie about 7! chicks in "deathproof". see my point?! the 2 good movies were "dogs" & "pulp" no ladies ruled the stories or the movies. now we have again two leading ladies melanie laurrent & diane kruger and if u do count pitt as a lady we have 3!;) well what does that mean already, all the movies suck were chicks rule the movie of a tarantina film! this will be it in this movie, they always try to sell it as a badass killing nazi movie but melanie is the leading lady in this and it wont be just about badasses who kick the shit out of nazis! its also the journey of this girl and really i have no more interest in seeing another chick flick of tarantina! my next point is that quentin fukked the original version of basterds up. it should be once about an action icon cast with sly, arnie, bruce, madsen etc quentin changed that in favour of a "realistic" & "artistic" approach. well what so realistic about ************SPOILER************** killing hitler! so back to the artistic/cast stuff...in no way is til schweiger a better actor as stallone, or pitt aint a better actor as willis. if quentin would love movies so much, he would know how bad actors til schweiger, daniel brühl, diane krüger, m.myers and ELI ROTH are! what i saw in the trailer of "basterds" is just bad acted, made cheap, it looks like a direct to dvd or tv movie. so quentin lost it casting wise, quentin lost his sense/craft of movie making, quentin lost somehow his talent to write good scripts or to write good monologs. he is far away from his first fans he won with "dogs" & "pulp". he isnt in touch with reality anymore cus if he would he would know that his once fans are not interesed in watching more chick flicks. i guess his main interesst is to get in touch with ladies he likes, loves or wants to get in...! he also lost the fan faves like steve buscemi, tim roth, madsen etc. i mean if you read this talkback from first til the last post, u`ll see its mixed. half the people are fed up with quentin and the other half defend him and hangs on to yesterday and say how good "pulp" was etc yeah, but that was in another decade. "kill" is only a half so so good movie and "deathproof" is just bullshit! so what did he do in this decade nothing really good. so why should i give quentin another try after i`ve seen the trailer which sucked big time and was just ridiculously stupid. i mean you wouldnt go and watch a ben affleck movie directed by McG. cus you know it will suck! basterds has a cast i mean there is no one really good in it. pitt was in some good movies, but he is and always was overrated and even tom cruise is a better actor as pitt and pitt is the best listed actor in this shitty cast. should i repeat me: ELI ROTH, MYERS, SCHWEIGER, KRUGER, BRÜHL...come on even if spielberg, scorese and scott would direct this together it couldnt be any good, cus every good movie needs a good cast! about harry pimping this shitfest...of course quentin paid his visit to berlin, there is nothing less than the greatest review awaited and thats why i fight againgst this injustice and do everything i can to wake the people up and say what is the truth and if i accomplish to keep 10 people away from watching this shit. its worth the fight, cus quentin deserves a wake up call and needs to listen to the fans from the past, like stallone does these days! if harry wont say anything bad about this movie when it comes out, i wont come to this page again! cus one thing already is for sure it has a shit cast and its made in germany and it looks really cheap!

    No problem with Kill Bill Vol. 2

    by TurdontheRun

    It was actually the better half of the whole thing. The fact that Tarantino can go from giving us a fun, hyper-violent and colourful homage to asian cinema in the first (though without much substance) and then spin that on a dime, and bring in some emotional weight and meaning to that, the consequences of revenge, in volume 2, was great (and actually informs what has come before).<p> As I said earlier, Tarantino can shift between all poles, high to low art, tongue-in-cheek to played straight, cartoonish to 'realistic' drama, comedic violence to serious violence; his films (especially now) straddle all those extremes. He is a gifted cinematic cat burglar, able to glean meaning by weaving together all these disparate elements. Some may find this annoying. But in Jackie Brown, and Vol. 2, he appeared to be showing some genuine emotion for once.<p>And yes, Asimov, you are right; most of the people against him are those that got caught in the mid-90's hype, and were not aware of his influences, or had not seen much foreign or B-level cinema. They thought Tarantino was entirely original, and when they found out what he was 'copying' from, they now declare him a hack. But those of us who had seen his influences before we saw his movies, understood what he was doing, and thus give him more leniency. <p>Ditto for those who only liked his crime films and now deride his more obvious and fantastical genre homages, when in fact he was always doing such, yet people seem only to be able to handle it when he does 'realistic' fare (which in fact, are not very 'realistic' at all - they too are 'movie' movies.)

I can't speak for the morons who call him out for cutting and pasting, because I for the most part like his movies and the movies he is cutting and pasting from better than most of the dreck that hollywood secretes these days, but Reservoir Dogs was all badassery, coolness, and tough as hell motherfuckers on a mission, without a single misstep, and each subsequent movie has spread the goods thinner and thinner and filled the gaps with more and more Trannytino dialogue and Uma Thurman. Quit pretending the hate filled geeks don't get the man's jokes and triumphant throwbacks to the ultimate in cinema, it is precisely that we do want the awesome and know that he could deliver on all cylinders if he so chose that we hate getting fucked over more and more each trip to theater to witness one of his abortions.

Sly went out and got almost every badass who could act worth a shit. (sorry jcvd, segal,lambert...) Just hope Bruce Willis is involved some way,keep hearing about him playing a char named Church. Schwarzenegger's involvement will be key, if he has a sweet ass part even if its small. People will be talking about it that much more. Tarantino is know mainstream as a maverick, but makes more and more "safe" choices as the years go by.At the end of the day his flims cost more and need to bring back the buck. Sly is different if he plays his cards right he can keep makeing cheap hardcore action flicks for the fans and be set if they only pull 40-60 mill stateside, the oversea gross will more than cover them and studios know it.

  • May 17, 2009, 11:05 a.m. CST

    by Continentalop

    My problem with QT is I just can’t buy his characters, dialogue or even the themes of his later movies. They don’t feel real, and I don’t mean realistic, I mean emotionally real. I can just detect the artifice and it causes me to disconnect from them. <p> In his first three movies I felt that these were actual characters, actual people and reason he had to make those movies. Sure they were archetypes from other genres, but they felt real. They were archetypes that just happened to speak a little bit like video store geeks and fanboys; in his later films they feel like hipsters posing as assassins and samurais and characters from movies. His films have basically became hipsters in drag, trying to pretend they are something they are not as they are put through the paces. <p> AsimovLives mentioned that QT was able to find the subtext in those exploitation movies that nobody took seriously and brought it to our attention. I agree with that, but my problem now is that QT isn’t able to tap into the authenticity that those exploitation movies or his first films had. His use of b-movie and exploitation subtext in his films feels just as forced and arbitrary now as a hack screenwriters use of Syd Field’s second plot point would feel. <p> I’m not saying he was always like this – just his last three movies. But that is what is bothering me about Inglorious Basterds, everything I see suggests he is still in this phase. I hope that I am wrong…

    by bottombrick

    It's not boolean, it isn't that his last 3 movies were in one 'phase', and he might flip a switch and this movie could be right in step with Reservoir Dogs, each subsequent movie has been diminishing returns. In Reservoir Dogs he had real actors really acting and he had to apply himself 100% or he would never be able to get his failure of an acting 'career' going and amass his hoard of cocaine. Each new movie will lower the bar further.
