International INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS One-Sheet hits online!

Published at: June 17, 2009, 10:30 a.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here... I'm taking off for the set of THE EXPENDABLES in New Orleans today, but before I left I figured it'd be pretty darn nifty to share with y'all this groovy International poster for Tarantino's INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. It's pretty damn cool looking in my opinion. I love the use of the theater marquee - and is it just me or have they given Eli Roth blue eyes? Cuz that's just wrong - that creeps me out. Feel free to embiggen...

    They should use this poster in the United States.

    by Royston Lodge

    Leave it in Italian, but remove the red tag-line at the bottom.<p> "Il nuevo film de Quentin Tarantino" really suits the style of this flick and this poster.

    No offense to the Q.T. fanboys...

    by LargoJr

    But I'm just not that impressed with most of what he's done. <p> Granted, I REALLY enjoyed 'Pulp Fiction', and 'Reservoir Dogs' was just pure awesomesauce... but just about everything since then has been pretty damn 'meh'. <p> And yeah.. I fucking hated the 'Kill Bill' movies. it took me 3 tries just to get all the way thru the 1st one.. the opening monologue was THAT bad for me.

    What is the big deal?

    by abovo

    I read the script online and I couldn't believe that it took four years to write it. I have seen most of QT's movies and they always seem like a 70's, made for European TV movie.

    To pre-empt all you QT hating poseurs...

    by mode_7

    ...I'm now gonna copy/past a quote from Vern's site. So all this is copyright (c) Vern, hopefully he won't mind me doing this. "Do me a favor, don’t pull out that “he rips off movies” shit again. We went over that bullshit when some of you weren’t old enough to drive yet. It’s been settled. There is no movie fan in the world who watches a Tarantino movie and doesn’t know he’s often paying tribute to movies that he loves. No shit, Matlock. I don’t know what’s supposed to be so shocking or offensive about that. In fact Tarantino has done more to promote those movies than anybody. Just imagine how many people have watched samurai movies, Jack Hill movies, William Witney movies, men-on-a-mission movies, Pam Grier movies, Gordon Liu movies, Sonny Chiba movies, VANISHING POINT, CITY ON FIRE, or all those other things, just because Tarantino talked them up in interviews or referenced them in his movies. I don’t know why that is upsetting to people, unless it’s some movie nerd dick measuring contest, you gotta show off that you know what he knows about in order to prove that he doesn’t know more about movies than you know about movies. Or something."

    And ditto Arteska... I dont get the QT hate.

    by Ash0k

    Seriously.... I have yet to understand the hate for this guy. Imho Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, and Kill Bill 2 were phenomenal films. I didn't like Death Proof. I also didn't like Benjamin Button, Insomnia, or Ladykillers or Intolerable Cruelty. <p> I'd say QT, Fincher, Nolan, and the Coens have the most consistent quality output atm. I really don't get the hate for any of them. <p><p> Sure, every QT film minus Reservoir Dogs, Pulp, Jackie, and KIll Bill *HAS* sucked. But that's what... 1 movie?

  • June 17, 2009, 11:18 a.m. CST

    I'm Sure It'll Be Cool

    by LaserPants

    I don't quite get the QT hate. He's not a genius, but he's really, REALLY good at what he does -- pop cult mash ups. Everyone worships at the altar of Pulp Fiction, and it is awesome, but, for me, KILL BILL is my favorite. Seems most of you just want the guy to endlessly churn out Pulp Fiction remakes, and if he did, you'd all be complaining about how he's a one trick pony. <br><br>I'm not crazy excited about this, but I am looking forward to it. I'm sure it'll be cool.

  • June 17, 2009, 11:19 a.m. CST

    The best thing I can think about about QT

    by Series7

    Is that he admits that after Pulp he made enough money that he never had to work again. So he's only made he wanted. Didn't go off and make Pulp Fiction 2: Die Harder, or anything else. Which I can respect.

    DEATH PROOF Needed About 20 Minutes Of Dialogue Cut Out

    by LaserPants

    The first half is pretty cool, the second half much less cool. The car crash scene at the halfway mark is FRIGGIN' AWESOME. But it gets bogged down in some of the worst dialogue he's ever written. Still, it was fun to watch once.

  • June 17, 2009, 11:23 a.m. CST

    I don't care for Eli's movies

    by Series7

    He's like a bad Troma film, but I like him in popping up as an asshole douche in movies. Like in 1,000 Manics. EWWW FACED! It suits him. Him and Sylar need to star in a buddy cop show.

    And for the people who cry "Remake!"

    by Ash0k

    Um, Scorsese's Academy Award winning Departed was a remake, just like his Cape Fear was a remake. 12 Monkeys was a ripoff of La Jetee. RDM's award winning BSG series was a remake of a 70s show. Heck, the first Sergio Leone Dollar's movie was a REMAKE of Yojimbo, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly was a sequel to a REMAKE. Virtually everything in Hollywood is lifted from an earlier work. But, oh, QT paid homage to something, I guess he sucks. Heh.

    Roth is garbage; QT is not.

    by TurdontheRun

    Roth only has a filmmaking career because he has rich parents who funded Cabin Fever - that and the ability to worm his way sycophantically into the favour of other, more talented people, ie. Quentin, who re-wrote parts of Hostel and used his clout to distribute the movie - Quentin Tarantino presents 'Hostel'. Obviously Tarantino likes him because either a)Eli is able to procure great grass or blow for QT from some dealer or b)because QT is a closet bi-sexual and Roth sucks cock real good. In any case, it sure can't be because Tarantino thinks he's talented - unless his coke-addled neurons have blinded his judgment. <P>But Tarantino hmself is definitely not a hack - he's indulgent, but he's got real talent, which he can occasionally channel to great effect - when he isn't making appearances on American Idol and sniffing coke off the ass cracks of Venezualan hookers that is. Christophe Waltz won best actor at Cannes - his character is said to be perhaps QT's best to date - surely that counts for something?

  • June 17, 2009, 12:11 p.m. CST

    eli roth and qt

    by martinlutherkrangjr

    i think that the reason that qt and eli roth are friends and associates is simply that they both love the same kind of cheesy b movie stuff. i like tarantino, except for deathproof and like roth too. i thought that cabin fever and hostel 1&2 were really fun movies, not meant to be taken seriously at all. why does everyone hate these guys so much?

    BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH

    by nightheat500

    I should make a video taking the dialouge from Pulp Fiction/Reservoir Dogs and comparing it to dialog sequences in "Death Proof" and Inglourious Basterds. Duh, his dialog was brilliant with Pulp/Dogs, and obviously there wouldn't be complaints about the heavy dialog in IB if it was up to that quality. But its not. Death Proof was horrrrrrible BECAUSE OF THE DIALOG. Read the imdb reviews of Death Proof, its just common knowledge that it sucks! No one likes it, hey you might be a huge Tarantino fan, and you like it. Fine, but the rest of the world hates it. And Inglourious Basterds seems just as boring and talky as Death Proof and thats why this is the last one... the last tarantino film that has any shred of credibility before he damages it FOREVER, and pisses off his remaining fanbase that wasn't there with him for Grindhouse but mildly curious about IB. It's over, I know this movie will be horrible, and I know the majority of people FOOLED into paying for this will HATE IT.

    Mixed feelings about that poster

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    <p>On one hand, the artist and film geek in me loves it because the background, with the red hues, as well as the Italian gives off an old-school, spaghetti-western vibe that's all kinds of awesome.</p> <p>But then I see Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, and the other guy in the foreground, and then the whole thing just looks silly. I'm not sure what it is--the fact that they're all have some ridiculous facial expression, or the fact that they seem to be walking of reflective air. The whole poster seems to fall apart when my eyes shift from the background to the foreground.</p> <p>On a completely different note, I need to watch more Tarantino movies. I've only seen Death Proof, and while it was euphoric seeing Kurt Russell on screen again, the rest of the movie was hindered by terrible acting and terrible dialogue. It doesn't give me much drive to watch Tarantino's other stuff.</p>

    by laguna_loire

    I thought Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown were ace, I thought Kill Bill 1 & 2 were okay (but very much a case of style over substance - and boy did that hurt number 2), I thought Death Proof was a piece of excerable shite (why do I have to put up with QT's excerable crap about how he's trying to remake those great movie's of the '70's like White Lightning, and Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry, when it seems 3/4's of the way thru he's re-envisioning Loose Women!! Hey you one-trick twat, why can't you do something like the Jeremy Kyle show!! That would be at least entertaining!!), and now we have to put up with his shtick on World War 2. Harry, cut with the crap and post the damn Transformers review!! At least that would be entertaining!! Damn I need a laugh!!

    i've been working at a library for a few years now, and i'm happy to report that death proof is loaned out each week...and requested often when it is out...so if you want to dwell in forums believing that majority of people dislike the film...go right ahead, but you are wrong...

    QT dialogue criticism

    by coldharbor

    What has always appealed to me regarding QT's decisions on dialogue is the amount of information communicated. Life is too short to give attention to most people's lack of effort in forming sentences. If we were immortal I might listen to you twice. So, you have one shot at impressing me, if you failed you no longer exist to me. This is how I filter and it makes me an elitist in that regard. QT, IMO, is a master with dialogue - there is always a lot of (meta) information available and his movies stand out because of this attention to communication.

    Re; QT and 12 MONKEYS

    by ArmageddonProductions

    First of all, Ash, 12 MONKEYS isn't a "ripoff" of LA JETEE -- ripoffs usually don't cite their source material in the opening credits (watch 12 MONKEYS again; says it's "INSPIRED BY THE FILM ..." right up front, so people who can read don't get confused or something).</p><p> Secondly, while I appreciate quite a few of Tarantino's films, like PULP FICTION, RESERVOIR DOGS, his flourishes on KILL BILL and his script work on TRUE ROMANCE, I think it's ridiculous to make him critic-proof by saying "everybody who doesn't like his work is jealous of him". DEATH PROOF was a self-indulgent mess. While I hate to paraphrase "Family Guy", I'll just say "I don't think I like feet as much as you do, Mr. Tarantino." He couldn't even adhere to the rules of the "GRINDHOUSE experiment" that he set up with Rodriguez; after utilizing the digital film-aging technique a little in the first parts of DP, as well as a missing reel, he sort of abandons it early on and tries playing it straight. I realize he was likely worried about what the guys at Cannes would have thought if he'd had fake film meltdowns throughout his precious masterwork, but if that were the case (and he did show the film at Cannes), then he should have just made a regular old goddamn Tarantino movie and maybe saved the Weinsteins a few dozen mil they lost betting on that ridiculous experiment. Anyway, like any other QT movie, I'll approach this one with a completely open mind, but if it stinks, it stinks, and no amount of "Jungle Boogie" is gonna make me think otherwise.

    The Flaw in The Defence of Tarantino

    by Sherlock Holmes II

    Whenever people defend him they say that he brings attention to movies that people hadn't heard of, and makes them popular. Well, of course, if he's ripping them off, he brings attention to them. So what you're basically saying is that Tarantino has the right to blackmail other filmmakers by insinuating that he's popularising their work by homage, while he's ripping them off? And it's not surprising the American defence centres entirely around the importance you place on 'Popularity'. When you've got no credibilty, that's all you can hide behind! And I don't believe for a moment that anyone starts buying old movies just because Tarantino tells 'em to. You either have an interest in these things, or you don't. The other thing is that he never really mentions the movies he actually rips off, just movies he likes that are in the same genre to the movie he's making. For example, Death Proof isn't a homage to Vanishing Point, it's equal parts Snapshot, Mad Max & Fair Game. It's funny watching Not Quite Hollywood and realising that QT did his bit a while before they had the idea to do Grindhouse. He basically riffs on all the movies he ripped off for Death Proof in his piece!

It's much tighter and it moves at a decent pace.

I will give him all the credit he deserves as far as energizing and entrancing moviegoers... but there is not one movie of his I haven't fallen asleep to. Pulp Fiction included. . . Hell, I don't hate the guy, either. I love his interviews and I really think the greatest thing he's directed was that episode of The Jimmy Kimmel Show. That was AWESOME.
