The Basterds Have (Finally) Landed

inglourious basterds The Basterds Have (Finally) LandedOkay, I couldn’t help that reference to Peter Jackson’s Bad Taste, and I apologize if I’ve used it before.

It’s just that I’m excited (and I’ve waited a long time to use that quote!) about seeing the trailer for this film.

We’ve waited long and hard for some Inglourious Basterds footage and now finally we get to see the first trailer for the Quentin Tarantino/Brad Pitt team-up.

Head over to Yahoo Movies for the HD version.

Well, it certainly looks interesting. It also looks like it could be violent as hell (very unlike Tarantino) and high on comedy. In fact I was reminded of Dr Strangelove and the Coen Brother’s back catalog when watching the trailer. However, what worries me slightly is the rather flat visuals. The cinematography looks dull and uninspired, and some of the sets appear to be of a straight to DVD standard – odd considering that this is a Brad Pitt starrer. Looks like the credit crunch is really hitting the Weinsteins.

Overall, Inglourious Basterds appears to have that man on a mission quality that Tarantino has been talking up for a decade, but the trailer seems to rather light on other basterds. Yes Eli Roth seems to have a good bit of the limelight (and appears to be re-living his “gorno” days)┬ábut the trailer seems to ignore the rest of Pitt’s crew.

It is a teaser and the film isn’t released until August 21, 2009 so I’m sure we’ll see more in the coming months. Tarantino is a must-see film-maker and this isn’t any different. Let’s just hope that it measures up to the director’s hype. As for the crazy Hitler… I’m still not sure

Okay, Stallone – lets see the first on set image of The Expendables.

  1. I love this trailer.

    I felt pumped watching it and broke out laughing at the Hitler thing :)

  2. before i saw this trailer i was like im not interested but after this trailer iv decided that this looks very good

  3. OK this looks awesome.

  4. Looks pretty cool. I enjoy Taratino movies so I’ll have to see this. Some of my friends don’t like his movies because of the over the top violence. That’s one of the things that makes his movies so much fun!

  5. The trailer was full of win. Hitler had me falling off my chair. This movie is gonna rock.

  6. Oh yes! I love Tarantino, and this looks awesome, I had read the supposed script already and I loved it, but not knowing if it was real or not, I didn’t put to much stock in it, but so far every thing in it has matched up to what I’ve seen or heard…yes including the amazing Hitler rant.

  7. the trailers did look kind of bland…
    but Oy Vay that hitler was ROFL…

  8. Yes the trailer looks great, but that is what a trailer is suppose to do right? I enjoy Tarantino’s work, but, lets be clear here:

    Stallone, Statham, Li, Lundgren, Couture, Rourke, Knepper, Whittaker, and Kingsley
    AKA Rambo, Crank, Wong Fei-Hung, Red Scorpion, UFC Hall of Famer, Angel Heart, T-Bagg, Ghostdog, and Sexy Beast


  9. I’m all for Expendables, and I’ll definitely be seeing it.

    But this trailer, unless some horrible news/clips come out before the movie, has sold me on it.

    I’ll be there.


  10. Meh

    Tired of WWII movies set in the German front. We went to war to fight Japan, they were as if not more brutal to the Chinese than were the Nazi’s. Why no movies about that??? Apparently it’s only ok to make a snuff-like film about butchering white folks, minorities are taboo. I find that more rascist than anything
    I’ll catch the rental I hate Eli Roth anyway. Love Tarentino but my money for this Dirty Dozen-ish genre will be going to Sly

    And lord Brad Pitt looks OLD!!!! really starting to look 50ish

  11. Garth,

    Man, there’s as many movies against non-white people as there are against white people. Actually, I’d say there were probably more. It’s just the german Nazi’s were such a prominant figure associated with “bad” that they make for good story.

    As a good friend always said, “The Good Guy is only as good as the Bad Guy is bad,” and giving the enemy a name, rather than nationality, helps us enjoy the story more clearly.


  12. The flim before Bastards sux! But, Brad Pitt playing a drill sargant with a Texas accent? DON’T THINK SO! If your into WWII movies, and apparently Quentin Tarantino isn’t one of them! Then I don’t think you’ll like this movie! I’ll pass too.
