Trailer Watch: Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds

I might be mistaken, but it seems to me that there are two types of Quentin Tarantino fans. Those who think he peaked with Pulp Fiction, and those who think the man has been boldy riffing on genre after genre since, in the same way he did with crime in Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. If you’re one of the former, thanks for reading this far, and have a nice day. If you’re one of the later, watch this trailer now.

Me, I think Death Proof is his best movie, so I’m definitely one of the latter. In my opinion, Tarantino has always been a B-movie director — he just happens to be an amazing B-movie director.

Me, I think Inglourious Basterds looks like it’s going to be some fun, demented, utterly ridiculous shit… pretty much like all of his movies. Inglourious Basterds stars Brad Pitt, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, BJ Novak, Samm Levine and a bunch of other people. It hits theaters on August 21, 2009.

    Not a massive fan…but wouldn’t stick myself into either of the categories detailed above. Thought Death Proof could’ve been brilliant if it was refined…as in, most of the film revolved around pointless, irksome Tarantino dialogue. The two pivotal scenes were good…but the rest of the film didn’t make up for it.

    I would love to see him direct other people’s concepts…other writers’ screenplays consistently for a while. I think he could do a lot of creative damage like that (in a good way).

    I guess, if anything, he does inspire a lot of discussion/debate. Personally, I’ve had a good feeling about Basterds ever since I first heard it was finally going into production.

    I just hope it includes some accuracy about the Nazis political positions; how all their pretty words made them feel it was okay to subjugate Europe.

    I feel like this is one of those movies which will make a lot of history buffs really angry. But I’m totally alright with that. This looks like it’ll be a fun movie.

    I’m one of the former tarantino fan. Pulp fiction/reservoir dog are the reason I love movies (with all of Kubrick work too). but I don’t hate the “new” Tarantino either. I’m pretty much a fan of the man and I will welcome any movie he make! From the trailer, I guess it will be a blast!
