Slashfilm reports that a company called Hot Toys is now selling a Colonel Hans Landa figurine. Hans Landa, of course, is the sociopathic Nazi from Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds played by Academy Award winner, Christoph Waltz. Neat!

Duh Aficionado Magazine: Eli Roth Is Not A Method Actor

Ugh. This guy. The Joe Francis of Hollywood. At least Joe Francis eventually went to jail. From /Film (via DogsAreAdorable): I totally went method. And I realized, thinking about this stuff all the time, that's why these [method] actors are nuts. I mean, I didn't go method like, "What is this strange ma… More »

The Videogum Movie Club: Inglourious Basterds

Let me just say, first and foremost, that I was wrong. I often am! I did not love Inglourious Basterds. I didn't even really like it very much. But it was not the disastrous, self-indulgent, World War Grindhouse shitshow that I had anticipated. It was decent, actually! There were parts of it that were very… More »

Inglourious Basterds Now Being Directly Marketed To Assholes

Quentin Tarantino's upcoming new World War II movie, Inglourious Basterds, looks awfal. It turns one of the most indelible human tragedies in human history into a schlocky Grindhouse bonus feature.

Quentin Tarantino's newest movie, Hostel WWII, premiered at Cannes today, and much like everything in this world--except for pizza which is unanimously loved--some people liked it, and some people did not like it.

Ann Curry Can’t Believe She Grabbed Brad Pitt’s Face

Ann Curry interviewed Brad Pitt live from Cannes on the Today Show this morning about Inglourious Basterds, a movie, Ann kept pointing out, she has seen and Brad has not. In addition to some good-old-fashioned sycophantic Ann Curryisms ("There isn't a shred of the humanitarian Brad we've come to know in this character, because thi… More »

Eli Roth Is In Movie Posters Now? Eli Roth Is In Movie Posters Now.

I knew that Eli Roth, director of Hostel and Hostel 2, was in Quentin Tarantino's new movie, Inglourious Basterds. He is even in the trailer. But lots of people are in the trailer. Samm Levine is in the trailer. Samm Levine is not, however, on a poster. Yikes. Personally, I'm not a fan of… More »

Inglourious Basterds Snacke Proview

Because Quentin Tarantino was a "mentor" to the contestants on American Idol last night, whatever that means, some new footage from his upcoming Inglourious Basterds aired. Sure.

The Only Person Dumber And Worse Than Quentin Tarantino…

...is the person who tries to validate him. From the New York Post: QUENTIN Tarantino's new war movie, the strangely spelled "Inglourious Basterds," is shaping up to be the blood-spattered antidote for anyone who's depressed by the recent torrent of Holocaust movies - it's one big slaughterfest in which hundreds of Nazis are gleefully executed… More »

Trying To Defend Inglourious Basterds Is Ridoucuolouus

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… More »

Inglourious Basterds Looks Terrable

We haven't posted the Inglourious Basterds teaser trailer yet this week because the only versions available were those clips from Entertainment Tonight where those dumb-dumbs talk over the whole thing. What's that all about anyway? Those guys should shut up. That show should be called WE-T, short for We Should Shut Up Tonight, am I… More »
