I love when the Rihanna I'm listening to totally gets beat by her boyfriend.

ET First Look Trailer:
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

If they're gonna misspell it, why not go all the way with 'Basturds'?

I caught the trailer on ET late the other night. Looks like the movie could be fun, but Brad Pitt yelling, "And I want my scalps!" just sounds goofy. That's all I could surmise from the trailer.

trailer for real: http://movies.yahoo.com/movie/1808404206/video/11988602

pitt's too cartoony.  and it looks a little too "violence is cool" centered, but....we'll see.

everything about that is wrong. From the first image being of eli roth, the nu-metal music in the background, pitt's i don't know where the fuck i'm from-accent. What the fuck is going on here? i remember being like "Whaaa??" when I first saw the Kill Bill trailer before matrix reloaded but the movie turned out to be over-the-top fun and entertaining but god dammit does this look like shit.

Considered me disappointed already.

It's a play on Sergio Leone's spaghetti Westerns so it will be entirely that. I enjoy Leone, but he's a not a film artist to me. He's just a qualified stylist so I'm already accepting this tribute by Tarantino with enough salt to a fill a million salt shakers.

Besides, it's a true teaser in that one scene almost dominates the entire thing. A few shots of action elsewhere, but my impression is that Tarantino is still thick in the post production to make much heads of it yet.

maybe it's those shots of Eli Roth that just make the violence seem mean spirited and torture porny.  and not like pump you up this is going to be so badass.

I know it's only one clip of him, but Brad Pitt is lacking some much needed gravitas and bite. I feel like that last scalp line should have goosebumped me silly, but I felt nothing.

This just looks plain bad.  From the pronunciation of Nazi as "nat-zee" to the godawful musical selections, I cannot help but think that this movie will have nothing but gratuitous violence and a lack of emotional resonance. 

Of course, it's just a teaser, and probably not indicative of what the film as a whole will be.

Ha!  Teaser here looks like it's going for badassery and comedy at the same time, though it seems pretty weak on both.  Maybe if they'd tried for one or the other on the trailer it would seem more ingenuous.

it seems to me that all of the QT trailers have been very lackluster since the first two.  Still expect this to be amazing.  I cracked and started reading the screenplay and so far so good.
