Does anyone have this script yet? It seems like I'm one of six people in LA who don't have it...

Damn that was good.

Plese sir, can we have some more?

From the script:

My name is Lt. Aldo Raine, and I’m putting together a special team. And I need me eight soldiers.  Eight – Jewish – American – Soldiers.  Now y’all might have heard rumors about the armada happening soon.  Well, we’ll be leavin a little earlier.  We’re gonna be dropped into France, dressed as civilians.  And once we’re in enemy territory, as a bushwackin’ guerilla army, we’re gonna be doin one thing, and thing only, Killin Nazi’s.  The members of the Nationalist Socialist Party, have conquered Europe through murder, torture, intimidation, and terror.  And that’s exactly what we’re gonna do to them.  Now I don’t know about y’all.  But I sure as hell, didn’t come down from the goddamn smoky mountains, cross five thousand miles of water, fight my way through half Sicily, and then jump out of a fuckin air-o-plane, to teach the Nazi’s lessons in humanity.  Nazi ain’t got no humanity. There the foot soldiers of a Jew hatin, mass murderin manic, and they need to be destroyed.  That’s why any and every son-of-a-bitch we find wearin a Nazi uniform, there gonna die.  We will be cruel to the Germans, and through our cruelty, they will know who we are.  They will find the evidence of our cruelty, in the disemboweled, dismembered, and disfigured bodies of their brothers we leave behind us.  And the German will not be able to help themselves from imagining the cruelty their brothers endured at our hands, and our boot heals, and the edge of our knives.  And the Germans, will be sickened by us.  And the Germans, will talk about us.  And the Germans, will fear us.  And when the Germans close their eyes at night, and their subconscious tortures them for the evil they’ve done, it will be with thoughts of us, that it tortures them with.  But I got a word of warning to all would be warriors.  When you join my command, you take on debit.  A debit you owe me, personally.  Every man under my command, owes me, one hundred Nazi scalps.  And I want my scalps.  And all y’all will git me, one hundred Nazi scalps, taken from the heads of one hundred Nazi’s or you will die trying.

-Lt. Aldo Raine aka Aldo the Apache

Just finished it. Suffice to say this ain't your father's war movie. This is WWII by the warped mind of QT. Overall, looks promising. The final chapter is a definitely a page-turner... it may have caused me to get severely sunburnt as a matter of fact...

If you like your history movies accurate, then this isn't for you.

I do wonder whether certain elements will make it harder to gain finance? Whatever happens, I would much rather this be one complete movie and not split into two (though I don't see how it could be split). People are going to rag this movie, and like all QT there's positives and negatives I could go on about, but won't. The best bits are going to be pure exhibitions of style and coolness, regardless of everything else. And in the end, isn't that what Tarantino is all about? Count me in.

My two cents: Mostly entertaining, with some incredibly tense set pieces; not nearly enough of the Basterds, including Aldo; the VO narration at certain points doesn't work at all (I thought there was going to be a payoff, but there wasn't); the female lead doesn't work for me as currently written, her character takes some wild left turns; putting real historical figures in there -- man, I just don't know.

Landa is a fantastic character, though. Best role in the film.

Tarantino’s ‘Inglorious Bastards’ Ready To Roll! Or Is It ‘Basterds’?
Source: MTV

Finally. After about nine years in the making, Quentin Tarantino has officially finished the screenplay and is seeking producers for his latest picture, “Inglourious Basterds.”

For those of you who are skim-reading, allow me to reiterate the title: “Inglourious Basterds.” That’s right, the latest version of the script that has been leaked apparently has foregone spellcheck, not only on the title page, in what is supposedly Tarantino’s frantic handwriting, but also throughout the script. One hypothesis notes his bid to get it entered into the next Cannes Film Festival, which would explain skipping the proofread. Or is Tarantino’s unusual spelling techique all part of some masterful plan? Time will tell.

Tarantino had expected to make the flick years ago, before his action-packed character piece, “Death Proof,” part of his 2007 collaboration with Robert Rodriguez, “Grindhouse.” Seemingly adapted from the original 1978 Italian film “Quel maledetto treno blindato,” Tarantino’s upcoming project (rumored to have a role earmarked for Brad Pitt) will be the first war film of his illustious career. Set in Europe during WWII, it chronicles the mission of an American troupe called the Bastards, whose main objective is the strike fear in the hearts of Nazis. Sound unreal? Well, remember, it’s Tarantino we’re talking about.

i don't think i'll read the screenplay, but i just watched Battle of Britain on TV - does it stay strictly with ground fighting, i.e. i'm wondering if QT dares to take on an air fight?

(i'm going to have to guess most likely not, as if QT wanted to take on an air battle he'd have to do the biggest of all time and would probably make it a third of the movie - which would have most likely made any newspiece on the script).
I am Torgo. I take care of the place while the Master is away.

the whole BastERDS thing is annoying.  either it's on purpose and is as pointless as bleeping out Beatrice, or he is just as dumbassy on paper as he is in real life.

Wait a year when a bunch of nerdy retarded teenagers (like some of you right here) will start using the word 'basterd' on a regular basis.
