just a nitpick, isnt the title "Inglourious Basterds"?

 

anyways, just watched a trailer on youtube (with Brad Pitt talking to the lineup of American soldiers?) looks brutal!!

 

i cant wait for this to come out, maybe itll be the first 18 rated movie i see at the cinema :tumbsup:

Outdated Flash player on this PC so I can't see the vid... but then I kinda hate Quentin Tarantino anyway so I'll most likely pass.

When Tarantino goes in front of the camera, it's enough to make me sick to my stomach. He has all the non-acting talents of Tom Arnold and gives the word "amateurish" a new meaning. I recall seeing some fawning ass-kisser interviewing Tarantino when some shitty movie he acted in came out, and the guy was gushing about how much Tarantino had improved as an actor when it was painfully obvious from the clip that a puppet had more screen presence and charisma. The guy stopped just short of practically offering to give Tarantino a handjob right then and there on the set. As for his directing, it's not my cup of tea - I'm not much for bloodbaths.

Ahhh, another Tarantino hater! Thought I was the only one! :banger:

I have avoided anything with Tarantino's name on it ever since I saw (and hated) "Pulp Fiction," for which I maintain Quentin still owes me two and a half hours of my life that I will never get back... <_<

While I agree, Tarantino is not the best actor in the world

 

That gets my vote for understatement of the year. I'm fairly certain one could draw a simplistic face in magic marker on a balloon, and it would deliver a more credible take than Tarantino is capable of. His "performances" are so incredibly awful that they rate several notches below grade school pageant level. The simplest of lines, calling for the basest of expressions are beyond his grasp; they are delivered like a dyslexic reading from cue cards. How any producer with an eye for acting talent can put that schlep in front of the camera is a lesson in "It's not who you know; it's who you blow". The WORST actor I've ever seen in a big budget production - bar none. He makes Sophia Coppola seem like Meryl Streep in comparison.

I gotta admit I DO love Pulp Fiction.. But I also know it's not for everyone.... :tumbsup:

I love "Pulp Fiction" as well but didn't dig the "Kill Bill" series. And he did direct the best episode so far of "C.S.I."......

All I'm gonna say about "Pulp Fiction" is: Overhyped. Crap.

As a director, I tend to really dislike his stuff with the exception of Pulp fiction, which I like.

Jackie Brown, Kill Bill & Reservoir dogs were overrated tripe.

 

But other films he has been involved with, most notably Robert Rodriguez films such as From dusk til dawn and Desperado, I tend to find enjoyable.

 

When he only has a production, acting or writer credit, films tend to be good.

When he is directing and has his hand in everything else as well, they tend to be self indulgent wank.

 

I actually wasnt impressed with Pulp fiction initially, but that one has grown on me.

Still wouldnt say its a particular fave of mine, but it is a decent film.

 

Before I got into Pulp Fiction, a friend of mine who knew how much I disliked Taratino, suggested I watch Kill Bill as its entirely different, and I would really like it.

I gave it a try, and I have to say he was right about one thing, it was entirely different as it was even worse than any other Tarantino film I had seen so far.

 

As for Death Proof, I have yet to find anyone who likes that shit, even some Tarantino fans I know, think its dire shite of the worst kind!

Whats the purpose of this film????

 

I thought SAVING PRIVATE RYAN was the ultimate war movie, which showed the horror of D-DAY.

This film looks like it's FRIDAY THE 13th wrapped in a war movie.

BRAD PITT (IFUL) acts like a moron!!!!

 

Like the KILL BILL movies, I'm gonna pass....

Yes I loved Saving Private Ryan...but I thought Full Metal Jacket was much, much better.

I love Resevoir Dogs, and Pulp Fiction, not a huge fan of any of his other movies, I loved Natural Born Killers, I do have to respect the fact that no matter how bad of an actor he is, ive never gone to see a movie specifically cause he was acting in it! and to his credit he's never stooped so low as to put Dick Cage in any of his movies!!!! and thats something I respect about any Director!

    • You brought the man out of me, so many times, easily. 
    • One of my all-time favorite Christian rock-ballads.
    • I don't mind at all. That was the only way I could make you say, "Oh God!" without it being blasphemy. 
    • For the record, I would totally check out a "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread. Also, when I first glanced at this post, I thought it read, "Do you want to Bang your Libertarian?" and I immediately thought, "No way in hell does anybody here want to bang Leykis." 
    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it.
