God Bless Tarantino

I want to rub this trailer all over me.  I realize that I’m a day late on this one (don’t get me wrong, I watched it yesterday), but I still think there’s an inappropriate number of people who haven’t seen this trailer who should.

Now, there’s been lots of talk about the poor performance of Mr. Jolie in this trailer, but I beg all to withhold reservation until they actually see the movie.  When has Tarantino let us down before?  The only confusion I experience is what the Temp from The Office is doing in there.  WTF?  When I think of all the actors who could play cruel American soldiers during WWII, Helen Mirren and Judi Dench appear on the list above B.J. Novak.  Now I should take my own advice.

Without further ado, here’s the trailer for the upcoming Inglorious Basterds:

    Hmm it does have that silly ultra-violent fun look to it, but I can see why people think Pitt looks out of place. Your right though, should wait till i see the movie before criticising.

    QT has never disappointed me, and I know politics aren’t his thing, but this trailer just screams “hey kids, war crimes are awesome!”

    And I just checked IMDB, and Maggie Cheung is in this? WTF? She’s one of the best actresses in world cinema, and I know that Tarantino loves “Irma Vep” and Wong Kar-wai’s movies, but, seriously . . .

    I agree that this does seem to glorify war crimes, but if you’re looking for a moralistic tale in any of QT’s movies, it’s probably futile. Kill Bill taught us it’s cool to cut peoples’ arms and legs off, Reservoir Dogs taught us it doesn’t pay to be a cop, ever, Jackie Brown glorified homicide as humor, and drug use, Four Rooms….well, you get the picture.

    The kind of people who cry about Brad Pitt’s acting in this trailer are the same kind of people who cried about Nicholas Cage’s acting in Wild at Heart.

    Bunch of pussies if you ask me.

  5. i think this looks spectacular. please can i see it. please.

  6. The phrase “I want to rub this trailer all over me” is brilliant — you must trademark it. Otherwise, jealous people like me might be tempted to steal it …
