Yikes...

"... He should perhaps go back to making cheerfully inventive outrageous films like Kill Bill. Because Kill Adolf hasn't worked out."...

 "...the humor in the violence and outsized characters strutting across the screen, are largely missing."


sounds like all the things that annoy me are missing. awesome!

There are four portuguese film critics in Cannes (that I know of) and out of those four, three of them gave the movie 5 stars, and the other 4. One of them says it's the best in competition so far.

Eli Roth Describes Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Inglourious Basterds’ As ‘Kosher Porn’
Source: MTV

Quentin Tarantino’s star-studded army of cast members were on-hand to introduce the director’s new film “Inglourious Basterds” at Cannes this week, and a few offered some unbeatable quotes about what the project means to them. Variety reports that Eli Roth, who has already been rather vocal about “Basterds,” served up “some opinions, along with co-stars Diane Kruger, Mike Myers, and Brad Pitt. Roth made his name as one of the directors blazing a trail for horror’s new school of gore-nography, with films like “Hostel,” “Cabin Fever” and the “Grindhouse“-hitched trailer “Thanksgiving.” As you might expect, he did not disappoint with any unnecessary self-censoring in his assessment of “Basterds.”

“I’m Jewish, and to me this was kosher porn, something that I fantasized about since I was a child,” Roth told the audience. In case you haven’t heard, “Basterds” follows a group of Jewish-American soldiers who are sent deep into Nazi territory with orders to instill terror in the enemy by retrieving scalps and other brutal acts. Lofty expectations followed the film to its Cannes premiere this week, with fans excited to see Tarantino’s signature decadent violence cast against a new historical context.

Pitt and Myers also weighed in, offering their own perspectives on “Basterds.” Both addressed their motivations for signing on to appear in the film. Pitt gave credit to a long, alcohol-infused visit with Tarantino during the summer of 2008.

“When I woke up, there were five empty bottles of wine and I guess I committed because six weeks later, I was in uniform,” Pitt recalled.

Myers credited a connection that this role made him feel towards his UK-born parents, who served in the Royal Engineers and Royal Air Force.

“I am honoured, with a ‘u’ in there,” the “Austin Powers” star said.

funny that MTV edited out the "smoking apparatus" part of that Pitt quote.

As much as I really dislike basically everything Tarantino has done since Pulp Fiction, there's still something about him which is just completely endearing and lovable.  People call him a hack, but I think he's the exact opposite.  I still think he's just this big kid that really really really loves movies and has so much excitement and is so hyper about them that it gets in the way of him actually making a good film...  Look at his face when Pitt calls him an auteur and says how much QT loves movies.  I thought it was interesting that he says that he writes a character, and then from the character he picks an actor who can play the character, while the approach of someone like PTA is the complete opposite.  I wonder if this is why it's easier for me (and most people I know) to connect with PTA's characters and for him to get better performances out of his actors than QT usually does...  I still really want to see this movie because even if it's misguided, Tarantino obviously had great intentions for it and for me that counts for a lot.

Yeah I agree with you on the endearing part. He’s really one of the few directors who can get away with what he gets away with. I also think dude probably lives in a bubble, surrounded by yes men who perpetually give him head, and not his boy eli or even his editor would dare to grow a pair and say “hey Quentin man, this shit is boring.” But hey what do I know.

I think the problem with Quentin is that he likes shitty movies too much. Every movie he ever cites is just a shitty movie that's cool because it's so shitty. Movies like those women in prison flicks are so shitty that they're cool. These are his influences.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Yep. A couple years ago (Kill Bill era) I started digging out these trashy movies he raves so much about and I remember being really excited : ''YES a whole bunch of classics I've never seen or heard of this is gonna be great !''. Let's say I was disappointed.

Tarantino to Edit Inglourious Basterds Further?
Source: Variety

Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this week and Variety's Thompson on Hollywood says that the filmmaker may make further changes to the movie:


Wednesday night some badly needed star power arrived on the Croisette for the opening night of Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. Brad Pitt did the press rounds during the day, and showed up at the black tie premiere with Angelina Jolie on his arm. Later they had a great time at the Basterds late night beach party, hanging in the jammed VIP corner with Robin Wright Penn, Til Schweiger, Eli Roth, Emile Hirsch, Michael Fassbender (who was grooving to Guns 'n Roses), Daniel Bruhl, Harvey and Bob Weinstein, Thierry Fremaux, Bryan Lourd, and Hylda Queally.

Brad and Angelina seemed happy, as did an ebullient Quentin Tarantino, although TWC's 50/50 partner on the picture, Universal, UPDATE: is talking to the filmmaker about returning to the editing room post-Cannes to make some trims edits that might include adding a scene, says Tarantino, who reminds that the film, at two hours 27 minutes, is well under his contractual final cut length of two hours 48 minutes.
