Just to follow up on yesterday’s post about the Inglourious Basterds trailer, which obviously is just a trailer and therefore not evidence enough for anything like a review of the film but is certainly, despite many Tarantino-apologists’ claims, sufficient for a declaration of whether or not a film looks good (or, as in the case of this film, like one of the worst movies ever made). Have you guys actually looked at the IMDB page for this thing? Mike Myers as General Ed Fenech? Samuel L. Jackson as the narrator? WE WILL TAKE OUR APOLOGY IN WRITING, THANK YOU.

      I disagree. For the Carla Gugino nudity alone, Sin City should be in the AFI 100. This same principle also applies to Desperado and the Hayek nudity.

    Note to self: Increase commenting / traffic by innocently ripping a Tarantino trailer

  5. Samuel L. Jackson as the narrator still makes it better than every film ever made (excluding the ones featuring Samuel L. Jackson acting, of course. The Incredibles falls somewhere in between. Farce of the Penguins doesn’t exist).

  9. Samuel Jackson vs Morgan Freeman in a narrating contest.

    GO

  10. Alex Bolden as Military Attaché?!? ARE THEY SERIOUS?!?

  11. Hey, with a title with a gratuitous mis-spelling in the title alone, plus “I WANT MY SCALPS”, it’s going to be utterly over-the-top ridiculous.

    It’s like reviewing Snakes on a Plane on its dramatic performances and completely missing the part where an assassin tries to kill a witness by releasing 300 deadly snakes on an airplane. You’re missing the point.

    (And I’m no Tarantino fanboy- I skipped the second half of Grindhouse because I had no interest in Death Proof, especially after the awesome that was Planet Terror.)

    I really don’t understand why there’s so much hate for this trailer. I mean, I can see people being annoyed by the now-stale “This stuff is in the movie soley because this stuff is fucking cool to thirteen year olds” Tarantinoisms, but at the same time, that shit usually fills up about 95% of Tarantino movies, so if you weren’t turned off after Kill Bill, what’s really changed?
