International INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS trailer is pretty damn awesome!

Hey folks, Harry here and if you've been following me on Twitter - you probably know I've had the mother of all sore throats and have had a glorious day spitting up neon colored oysters. But I'm on the rebound, feeling much better. Especially after watching this International Trailer for INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS. This is the first trailer that I feel conveys the sort of vibe I am expecting from the film. It'll be out soon enough for all of us to love, hate and discuss. I can't wait - I've had to watch some pretty crap films recently, need something to break the streak soon.

    Hmmm...

    by ZooTrain

    I'm not exactly sure you should be hitching your wagon to this star. The tone looks uneven. I hope I'm wrong. I want a good Tarantino movie again.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:30 p.m. CST

    Looking good

    Or maybe even great.

    I can't wait to see it! I think each trailer has improved upon the last.

    QT. Where's Madsen???

    by Mr Soze

    I feel like he's starting to let us down. Grindhouse was very poor. Hope this is good.

    Mike Myers?!?!?!

    by RockyG

    What the hell is he doing in there???

  • June 30, 2009, 12:38 p.m. CST

    sounds good

    by abetyler

    This trailer finally make me eager to see this movie, though the first reviews qualify it of too chatty. Still, a minor Tarantino movie is always a decent one.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Not one trailer for this movie linked here plays properly

    by Thunderbolt Ross

    Maybe it's because there are 4000 ads running in the background.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:39 p.m. CST

    I'm a bit concerned about the cast

    by lex romero

    by kbass

    I like it much better than the teaser, that's for sure.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:42 p.m. CST

    ...and it's about time someone put the FUN back in...

    by FlickaPoo

    ...genocide.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:42 p.m. CST

    And I kept expecting Mike Myers...

    by kbass

    to launch into a Dr. Evil tirade, or maybe even a little Fat Bastard. Which would kinda fit, except for the spelling.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:43 p.m. CST

    This is not minor Tarantino...

    by waitingimpatientlyforingloriousbastards

    Deathproof was minor Tarantino, but I thought it was thoroughly entertaining, especially as part of Grindhouse.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:44 p.m. CST

    What's appealing about this?

    by CaptainAxis

    For those who "can't wait to see it" - why? I'm not going to totally trash it without seeing it, but the trailers have been a constant source of eye-rolling for me, so I'm just wondering why anyone wants a "fun" WWII movie from Tarantino? With Mike fucking Myers doing his Dr. Evil voice? What is it about this film that appeals to you?

  • June 30, 2009, 12:44 p.m. CST

    So...they are selling it now as a comedy?

    by DerLanghaarige

  • June 30, 2009, 12:45 p.m. CST

    Mike Myers...

    by OgreYouAsshole

    Much like Robin Williams, I prefer seeing him in non-comedic roles. Good actor.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:45 p.m. CST

    Dr Evil didn't have a British accent

    by Thunderbolt Ross

    Just sayin'

  • June 30, 2009, 12:48 p.m. CST

    Looks like a shitty version of Top Secret.

    by JasperTX

    Tarantino's hitched his wagon to Eli Roth's falling star, looks like. Flat, dull and desperate, this looks like someone doing a bad impression of Tarantino doing his bad impressions of everyone. It's all been shit since Reservoir Dogs. Goodbye, QT.

    "Oceans 11" meets "The Great Escape"

    by jim

    is what some quote-whore will say in their review to try and get their name on the film's advertising, or, dare to dream, on the DVD packaging.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:50 p.m. CST

    It looks entertaining...in a blood splattering kind of way.

    by JDanielP

    That's all I got.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:51 p.m. CST

    Intriguing...

    by foxthebloodied

    Looks screwier than expected, but that actually adds to the appeal somehow. I've never seen a Tarantino movie I haven't enjoyed and I don't see this one ending that run.

  • June 30, 2009, 12:52 p.m. CST

    Looks excellent

    by hegele

    aw boo hoo... you are mad that a director can do whatever he wants (a.k.a. have creative control)? Who the fuck are you, Tom Rothman???

  • June 30, 2009, 12:59 p.m. CST

    I was confused by the trailer's tone

    by maelstrom_ZERO

    I thought this movie was supposed to be a kind of spaghetti western-styled movie about a secret Nazi-killing group. . .similar in tone to the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, but more brutal. Except after watching that trailer, it feels like the movie is more like a parody than an actual historical action-drama.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:01 p.m. CST

    It's no Expendables

    by Atticus Finch

    Everything I have read/seen about Expendables feels right on the money. Everything I've seen for this feels like shit. Probably has a lot to do with Eli Roth's involvement.

    Expendables already owns these Basterd's by the balls.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:03 p.m. CST

    So what the fuck is it?

    by Vaders Catheter

    A drama? A comedy? A dramedy? A piece of shit? Likely.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:03 p.m. CST

    Finally, something worth seeing this summer

    by RagingBULL123

    lol, For all the people saying this looks like a shit movie i'm sure transformers 2 will still be playing in august and you can all see it for the 10th time while i see "Basterds".

  • June 30, 2009, 1:07 p.m. CST

    ok, looking better but...

    by billyhitchcock

    ...mike myers still looks like one of his awful comedy characters.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:08 p.m. CST

    Mike Myers accent

    by Flyingcircus

    is attrocious. I'm blushing for him.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:11 p.m. CST

    Expendables?

    by RagingBULL123

    Why are people bringing up expendables in this section? why would ANYONE ever mention a Tarantino movie and a Sly Stallone Movie in the same sentence. One is arthouse cool while this other is mindless action. Not that either one is better but not even comparable

  • June 30, 2009, 1:14 p.m. CST

    This could go either way for me...

    by fassbinder79

    ...But Tarantino hasn't made a bad film yet so he'll get my money.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:14 p.m. CST

    Well, I like this trailer better than the others

    by axel fff

    but that's not saying much. Pitt's accent still sounds distracting (especially his "Nazi" pronunciation). <p> Some of the camera shots/movements seem recycled from Pulp Fiction (the lipstick shot) and Kill Bill (the fast zoom/track). Maybe this isn't going to be the film where Tarantino's style evolves. Starting to doubt that will ever happen.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:14 p.m. CST

    What about The Hurt Locker Harry?

    by kwisatzhaderach

    Surely that broke the shitty film run? Public Enemies too. 2 good films this summer.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:14 p.m. CST

    I can't tell if this is QT Lite or QT Epic . . .

    by Nice Marmot

    If its QT Lite (Jackie Brown / Death Proof), what's his next epic (PulpFiction, Kill Bills) going to be? Assuming he has something epic left up his violent yet hip sleeve.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:15 p.m. CST

    FUCK this movie!!!...

    by itsjust_notcool_anymore_baby

    *Insert hip Tarantino bashings here* lay off QT. The man is just suffering from a connection of dirt weed is all. Go jerk off to Bayformers 2: The search for more money.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:16 p.m. CST

    Some Good Lines

    by snaps_provolone

    The lines "The goal: to blow up the basket" and "That's a bingo!" were great lines. At least Tarantino can still write some good one-liners. In terms of the flick, this does look really good. Clearly, this isn't a realistic WWII portrayal. It's not trying to be, so I'm cool with it. As long as they don't have Germany winning WWII, or Hilton doing cartwheels, I'll take the flick tounge-in-cheek.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:18 p.m. CST

    Who THE FUCK cares about this BULLSHIT???

    by Motoko Kusanagi

  • June 30, 2009, 1:19 p.m. CST

    Nice Marmot

    by fassbinder79

    Jackie Brown is Tarantino's best film in my opinion next to Reservoir Dogs. But I do think its going to be QT Lite in the vein of Death Proof and that's not necessarily a bad thing. There are parts of this trailer that look cool but others not so much. I really dig that Tarantino cast Bruhl in this. Lenin is awesome.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:20 p.m. CST

    OR instead of bayformers...

    by itsjust_notcool_anymore_baby

    go see the expendables with all the newly came back action stars(yeah...rocky balboa was pure gold).

    I meant Johnny Knoxville! Still can't believe QT wanted him as the star for his movie.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:22 p.m. CST

    Quentin Tarantino

    by one9deuce

    He has been average since PULP FICTION. I think his tone has veered towards comedy a little too much and that is his problem. I think PULP FICTION is fucking hilarious, but it isn't "comic" in any way. KILL BILL and DEATH PROOF are more intentionally goofy without enough drama, I hope that INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS is less comedy and more drama.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:23 p.m. CST

    should've casted Paddy Considine...

    by itsjust_notcool_anymore_baby

    as a british soldier. Great actor.

    Look, when it comes to this Summer, this is all we got!

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    I just looked ahead over the next two months and this is the only thing other than "Harry Potter" that has any interest for me. I wasn't sure about this based on the first trailer, and the word from Cannes is only luke warm, but this new trailer looks like more of what I was hoping for. The only thing left in this whole Summer season that has me a little curious at all is Rob Zombie's "Halloween 2" which will open the same day as the 3D "Final Destination" for some reason. With all this open space this Summer, you'd think those two wouldn't want to cut each others' throats. I know, I know. Most of you don't give a shit about Zombie's sequel and I completely understand. But in this Summer of slim pickens, I've got to take what I can get.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:25 p.m. CST

    by fassbinder79

    Not enough drama for ya in Kill Bill? A woman's baby has been stolen away from her by her crazed killer boyfriend. She's raped in a hospital while sleeping by two white trash thugs. Her fiancee is murdered. She's buried alive. No drama?

    For a summer thats been built on franchises

    by skimn

    and sequels, and not good ones at that (I liked Star Trek, liked not LOVED), this can't come to the theater soon enough. I'll take even weak Tarantino over the crap thats been released recently. And I'll be lucky if The Hurt Locker gets a wide release in my city, so don't ask.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:42 p.m. CST

    i said it before ... it's BASTARDS you reterd

    by madCanada

    I'll tell you why I think the "Basterds" film title is misspelled. Dyslexic Quentin typed it that way. Weinstein (or someone) corrected him. Quentin threw a hissy fit, & said "I'm QT, and whatever I type is gospel!" So ... typo is now replicated on posters & press releases, now & forever ... Am I right, Quentin?

    For the Love of God and Lovers of Film, Give Me Solomon Kane!

    by The Reluctant Austinite

    This Summer is taking its toll on me. I desperately want to see something I'm looking forward to. Harry and Quint have already seen the movie I most want to see, "Solomon Kane," but there is no U.S. release date in site and not even a trailer to tease me! Nothing! Harry, save us! See if the stingy producer will let you show an exclusive trailer or something! I know you liked the movie!

  • "...day as the 3D "Final Destination" for some reason. With all this open space this Summer, you'd think those two wouldn't want to cut each others' throats."<p>It makes even less sense having a movie with "Halloween" in the title opening in any month that isn't October.

  • June 30, 2009, 1:46 p.m. CST

    skimn, yes this summer has been terrible

    by MattmanReturns

    I really liked Star Trek, but that's it. Nothing else has done anything for me. Compared to last summer, which had quite a few entertaining films that climaxed with Dark Knight, this summer is just pathetic.

    This is an out-and-out comedy, right??

    by performingmonkey

    Cause that's what it feels like from the trailer. Mike Myers doing an English Dr. Evil and Brad Pitt sounding so laughable with his 'let's kill some Nazis' dialogue. Tarantino is laughing at us all, I promise you. This is his Snakes On A Plane!!

  • June 30, 2009, 2:04 p.m. CST

    The best comedies

    by Therealumlaut

    don't act like comedies. Stop trying to be funny and just be. This'll be more 'funny' then it should be. It will start strong then QT will go to much with the comedy. He's got Lucasitis. All yes men around him, no contemporaries to say 'I don't like it.'

  • June 30, 2009, 2:06 p.m. CST

    The problem isn't Eli Roth...

    by TheLastCleric

    he actually comes across as a nice guy trying to make some decent genre films. I hated Cabin fever but I actually really liked both Hostel films but regardless, he's not the issue here. The issue is that Tarantino doesn't appear to have a genuine, original bone in his creative body and at this point all he can do is ape everything else and put his own slant on the material. For me personally, Death Proof was a painful, pointless experience and nothing regarding this flick has looked good either bur regardless, I expect Harry to gush and gush when it gets released.

    Too self-aware cocky cool, no dramatic tension..

    by ZombieHeathLedger

    SAVING PRIVATE RYAN was on cable the other night and as respectful to WWII that movie was this movie seems to not be taking the grim subject matter seriously. This trailer seems like one of those old Captain America and Bucky comic books where Cap' lobs hand grenades in Nazi tents and they chase the Red Skull and the whole thing is reductive and nationalistic. I would rather Tarantino have taken any number of true heroic stories of WWII and turned that into a great movie. This trailer is just sooo cartoon-ey and self-aware cocky cool I can just imagine Quentin salivating, telling himself how much he's gonna get laid for this one. Meh.

    MONO?

    by ThePilgrim

    or TONSILLITIS, maybe. I had a a really bad sore throat recently with flu like symptoms it was all on the left innerside. I couldn't get a lick or fluid down or food. 3 days later I suudnely felt really sick, and then I blacked out and hit the floor. I was rushed the hospital- They put me on IV feed Sodium Chloride and Clindimycin. The iv feed Clindi killed the pain in my throat before the iv bag was empty. I remained on Clindimycin antibiotics for a week and I'm all better, but my sister was recently diagnosed with mono, so I need to get screened. She complained of the same problems. Did you get this check out Mr. Red? You should. Don't fuck around with ceetain things. If you have Mono your spleen could explode, and you will either die or remain on blood thinners for the rest of your life until you die from a clot.

  • June 30, 2009, 3:16 p.m. CST

    by Cobra--Kai

    Guardian Cannes review:<p> Like the loyal German bourgeoisie in 1945, trying to keep patriotically cheerful despite the distant ominous rumblings of Russian tanks, we Tarantino fans have kept loyally optimistic on the Croisette this week. We ignored the rumourmongers, the alarmists and defeatists, and insisted that the Master would at the last moment fire a devastating V1 rocket of a movie which would lay waste to his, and our, detractors. But today the full catastrophe of his new film arrived like some colossal armour-plated turkey from hell. The city of our hopes is in flames.<p> Quentin Tarantino's cod-WW2 shlocker about a Jewish-American revenge squad intent on killing Nazis in German-occupied France is awful. It is achtung-achtung-ach-mein-Gott atrocious. It isn't funny; it isn't exciting; it isn't a realistic war movie, yet neither is it an entertaining genre spoof or a clever counterfactual wartime yarn. It isn't emotionally involving or deliciously ironic or a brilliant tissue of trash-pop references. Nothing like that. Brad Pitt gives the worst performance of his life, with a permanent smirk as if he's had the left side of his jaw injected with cement, and which he must uncomfortably maintain for long scenes on camera without dialogue.<p> And those all-important movie allusions are entirely without zing, being to stately stuff such as the wartime German UFA studio, GW Pabst etc, for which Tarantino has no feeling, displaying just a solemn Euro-cinephilia that his heart isn't in. The expression on my face in the auditorium as the lights finally went up was like that of the first-night's audience at Springtime for Hitler. Except that there is no one from Dusseldorf called Rolf to cheer us up.<p> Pitt plays Lt Aldo Raine, the leader of an anti-Nazi commando unit whose avowed mission is to get 100 Kraut scalps apiece; we see the scalpings in full, gruesome detail, yet that figure is entirely forgotten about by the end. Mélanie Laurent plays Shosanna Dreyfus, a beautiful young Jewish woman whose family were slaughtered by SS Col Hans Landa, played by Christoph Waltz. She got away and (somehow) attained not only a new identity, but also ownership of a Paris cinema which is to play host to the premiere of Dr Goebbels's latest propaganda movie, in the presence of the Führer himself. Her plan is to incinerate the entire first-night audience by bolting the doors and igniting her vast inflammable stock of nitrate film. Meanwhile Lt Raine has his own plans for killing Hitler at the movie theatre and the Brits get involved too, in the form of suave Michael Fassbender as Archie Hicox, a crack commando making contact with exotic spy Bridget von Hammersmark, played by Diane Kruger.<p> There are some nice-ish performances, particularly from Fassbender and Waltz, but everything is just so boring. I was hoping for Shosanna at least to get a satisfying revenge on the unspeakable Col Landa. But no. The two Hitler-assassination plots cancel each other out dramatically and the director's moderate reserves of narrative interest are exhausted way before the end. He should perhaps go back to making cheerfully inventive outrageous films like Kill Bill. Because Kill Adolf hasn't worked out.<p> • Peter Bradshaw is the Guardian's film critic

    by nightheat500

    From The Playlist Blog: This fast and funky "Inglourious Basterds" international trailer is what most Quentin Tarantino fans have been waiting for. "That's more like it!," is the thinking. It's fun, features blaxploitation funk, a few scenes we haven't already seen and some humor not evinced in past trailers. It should make Tarantino fans more excited. However, for those that like to complain about trailers that try and sell an entirely different movie -- and there are many of those people out there, including us from time to time --- here's your prime example. This basically takes all the violence and fast-moving parts and jams them together with propulsive '70s funk and yes, it totally works. But it's not the picture Tarantino made and its not the picture that we saw at Cannes. Some are convinced that the upcoming August 21 cut of 'Basterds' is going to be drastically different and much more exciting than the initial reports, but we're not buying it. Basterds' is still going to be the slow-moving, chatty talk fest with outbursts of Tarantino-esque violence we've seen. But expect something closer to "Jackie Brown," than anything else he's made in terms of languid pace. That said, some will still love it, no matter what, and that's cool, every filmmaker needs their devotees, but we're just saying: don't let this one change your expectations too much. Good trailer though, for sure. Way to sell it TWC (or Universal international or whoever cut it).

    I'm sorry but I don't get all teh hype about Tarantino. Other than Pulp Fiction, I can't name another movie he made that I liked. Kill Bill had its moments but the whole package wasn't great. And this movie (Basterds) looks to be the worst. Every scene looks so contrived, designed to "look good", and it does so in all the stills that have come out. But as a moving picture medium, it looks horrible!!!

    by RaRoMo

    Tarantino leaned on Avery quite a bit with those first films, but since then, he's been his own man. QT has a distinctive style, and his movies are a lot of fun. Plus he's got a great take for dialog. So, what should we do? Destroy him with derision? So there's one less original voice, and one more Michael Bay voice? Does that make any kind of sense?

    by ste1bro

    I think 'destroy him with derision' is a bit strong, but yes, it's time to replace him. He's produced turd after turd for years. Avery was the true creative force (Tarantino didn't 'lean on' Avery for Pulp Fiction, Avery wrote the damn thing, Tarantino then squeezed him out. The full story is pretty shocking, and is where 50% of my Tarantino-hate comes from). And why must he replaced by a Michael Bay voice? There's a hell of a lot of indie directors out there waiting for their chance, give them their shot! Oh, and his take for dialogue is rotten - every single character sounds like him. In my opinion, a good writer gives each character a distinctive voice of their own. A bad one makes every character sound like a retarded film geek, waffling on about comic books and 70s funk B-sides... (I swear, I felt my balls cringe when David Carradine started his 'Superman' speech in Kill Bill 2. Dreadful. Just dreadful).

    Twitter Haters

    by topaz4206

    It's so much more than "social networking." I lasted about 1 month on MySpace -- about 1 week on Facebook -- but Twitter, when used correctly, is the evolution of IRC and SMS in one -- a searchable, configurable stream of real-time data with a standardized, open API. Once you tailor it for your own needs (by choosing the appropriate client, using filters, groups, and perpetual live search feeds) it can become a powerful tool for CRM, socalizing, organizing, *networking*, and as was just demonstrated in Iran, the dissemination of information when all other avenues have been exhausted or extinguished.<br><br> That said, a large group of people still choose to use it for "Ooh, it's so cold -- I'm waiting at the bus stop"-style updates, and Harry's are not much better.

    by ColinSL

    Regardless of whether they are playing this as a comedy or drama, it looks like it will be a strong movie from Tarantino and maybe even better than Kill Bill.

    Brad Pitt takes me right out of the movie

    by cylon_conspiracy

    <p>WHY did QT choose Brad Pitt? It can't be for his acting skills. Maybe he wants a mainstream hit. Which is fine but there is something wrong when I am not excited to see a Quentin Tarantino movie. </p> <p>I think Brad Pitt is probably a cool guy and he can be funny but no way do I buy him as this character. And a cameo by Dr. Evil? This movie looks boring. Oh well, to each his own. I think I'll put Jackie Brown on the Netflix que so I can see a good QT film.

    Some things are better presented here, but I still can't shake the bad taste left in my mouth after seeing that very first trailer. This may be one that I won't choose to see until right up before its release after I hear the reviews from AICN and other critics. <p> If someone can give me a good review that presents it as something other than "FUCKING AWESOME!!!" (Harry) or "really bad, boring, and disappointing" (general critics), I may see it. I want a review that tells me its an interesting failure or an enjoyable crapfest.

    Fuck MySpace Fuck Twitter Motherfuck Facebook

    by Sgt.Steiner

    One: Twitter is yet another haven for self-promotion and narcissism. Two: "Deathproof" was exceptional because Tarantino once again used his penchant for of talkiness to make his feel a rapport with a group of girls before something really bad happens to them. He makes us feel it. And gets in a Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich nod. And fine ass Zoe Bell doing her thing. Three: What is wrong with a film partly concerned with the joys derived from killing Nazis? If that offend your delicate sensibilties, then you, my friend, are fucking pussy without any hope of redemption. Four: "Avatar". I'll believe it when I see it. But, for now, all this shameless Cameron-fellating has got to stop before someone gets heart. And, lastly, Five: "The Expendables" does seem awesome, but what the fuck does that have do with anything? Invoking Sly's film to diss Tarantino's without seeing either, just makes you sound like a dumbass. Unless you're ABKING. When it comes to all things Sly, homeboy gets a pass.

Dont get me wrong, i love most of Tarantino's films inc Kill Bill 1/2, but Deathproof is a MAJOR misfire, someone needed to hit the edit sweet and smack his hands hard. I would watch any of his films again gladly (well maybe not four rooms), but would pass Deathproof everytime. Dude needs to take stock.

    Just be sure and make this a hit....

    by TurdontheRun

    because Tarantino has a prequel and a sequel lined up for this. We want to see those...er, don't we?<p>I'll tell you something else that aggravates my derriere something rotten: all this nonsense about how Roger Avary was responsible for Tarantino's best work. Avary didn't even write any of the actual screenplay for Pulp Fiction; he's only credited for providing the basic story of one of the segments. That's it. And yet his influence is blown up to ridiculous proportions, and this falsehood that Tarantino 'stole' from him relentlessy perpetuated. Or so Tarantino's detractors would like to believe. Give QT credit where it's due.<p> It's very telling that the 'voice' of Reservoir Dogs and Pulp has continued throughout Tarantino's subsequent work, whether you liked those movies or not. It's the way Tarantino speaks, for fuck's sake. Yet Avary's solo work and screenwriting career has shown none of these characteristics - not to mention being underwhelming in the extreme. Rules of Attraction, Beowulf, blah! So this whole Avary nonsense is very much a myth that has long needed to be put out to pasture. Don't believe everything you read.<p>P.S. the mis-spelling of the title 'Inglorious Bastards' is still one of the dumbest quirks ever seen in a major motion picture release. Tarantino, you coke fiend, just admit you're borderline illiterate and never had a proper education!

    The only thing you are doing is demonizing QT with all the talk about having female leads. So the fuck what if he casts female leads? Do you hear people bitching about Marty's films primarily featuring italians? Or Woody casting Jews? Or Spike casting blacks? Maybe QT just wants the leads to be women becuase THAT'S HOW HE WANTED IT TO BE WRITTEN. And this "he's only casting chick leads to get laid!!!!!!!!!" is pure bullshit. I'm sure one of (if not THE) most infamous directors in the world wouldn't have a problem in that department, EVEN if he's asshole ugly.If you dislike TarantinO that's cool, but to use such shit excuses and diss on the guy on a post DAY AFTER DAY makes you a bigger bitch than a newly married stepmom.

    by BurnHollywood

    Not flaming you, stabby, but you reminded me of something that really pisses me off.<p> The biggest load of neoconservative shit ever foisted on the American public is that the French didn't "fight back" in WW2...they lost 90,000 men in the Battle Of France, and a further 25,000 died as POWs in Germany (twice as many casualties as the US had in Vietnam). French exiles fought with the allies around the globe, and the French established a significant resistance force that greatly assisted the re-taking of France, paving the way for the Allied invasion of Germany.<p> US Intelligence paid the Resistance back by spiriting the Nazi's most notorious brute, Klaus Barbie, off to South America so he could kill and torture there after the war.<p> This is the movie QT SHOULD be making, not some trumped up fantasy.
